About the Good News Network

From a story on cjr.org by Jem Bartholomew headlined “Good news!”:

One morning in the nineties, Geri Weis-Corbley was at her kitchen table, listening to NPR, when a story about the Bosnian war came on the air. As the reporter began describing the rape taking place in the war zone, Weis-Corbley found herself wondering about the impact the topic was having on her six-year-old son, who was sitting nearby. “I look over at him and think, ‘Wow, he’s going to start hearing the news and not be a happy-go-lucky child anymore,’” she recalled.
