Should News be More About Potential Solutions and Improvements?

From CNN’s Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter:

What should news be? Should it be about the day’s biggest emergencies, biggest political debates, biggest problems – or should it be about potential solutions and improvements?

Viewers and readers certainly want solutions. And there’s a nonprofit organization that is trying to steer the journalism industry in this direction: The Solutions Journalism Network. The group says “we train and connect journalists to cover what’s missing in today’s news: how people are responding to problems.”
