To say we live in troubled times would be an understatement. It often feels like the politicians and executives who surround us are interested only in who can tell the biggest whopper while lining their own pockets and leaving their constituents and customers to pay the bills.
I recently read that the real reason Jon Stewart stepped down from The Daily Show was that he was incredibly angry all the time, which had an adverse impact not only on his ability to be funny but also on his ability to enjoy life.
Much of that is because those of us in media tend to focus excessively on the bad — because that does seem to pull more eyeballs — than on the good. I think that by doing so, we actually may be promoting bad behavior.
