- The Good News
- Arianna Huffington: I'm delighted to announce the launch of HuffPost Good News, a new section that will shine a much-needed spotlight on what's inspiring, what's positive, what's working -- and what's missing from what most of the media chooses to cover. Everywhere around the country, people and communities are doing amazing things, overcoming great odds, and facing real challenges with perseverance, creativity and grace. But these stories are rarely told online, in newspapers, and on TV. HuffPost Good News will be using a variety of storytelling tools to bridge that gap and connect our readers with stories of real people and their countless acts of empathy and ingenuity. Here's hoping it sets off copycat acts of good news reporting across the media.
- What is the state of news today?
- Do we need good news?
- Is the good news a moral and ethical way to proceed?
