Today’s picture features our neighbours Jules & Phil, and our drive guests Sarah & Clive. We have been having a morning natter for a while now, breaking the monotony of social isolation. Everyone brings their own drinks and stays 2m apart to stay within the guidelines.
The subject matter varies greatly, depending on what’s happening in our bubbles and the world in general, but just recently one topic comes up time and time again, which is the way the media portrays news stories.
Surely if we had some good news now and again it would lift peoples spirits and improve the mental health of the population. I am a firm believer that 99% of the population (irrespective of race, religion gender etc etc) are just nice, normal people.
Why does the media seem to focus some much on the remaining 1%?
