And mine was about homocide (grouping war in the same category) in the
news. I don't watch TV often (even when I owned one) because the
fear-amplification factor used often in media reports is something that
I intensely dislike.
I would prefer triumphs to be portrayed in the media more often than
tragedies, in general, but I guess that triumphs don't sell the news.
