I have to admit sometimes my brain comes up with some strange thoughts. While this question is not one of the exteme examples it is something that has perplexed me today. Is it possible to write or report about politices and to be positive?
In most cases, Google provides me with the answers to most of these strange questions I have. This was not one of those times. The search results that I get are usually articles giving tips about writing about politics.
I know that I have attempted it in the past and failed miserably. That could be one of my shortcomings. I tend to be a rather cynical person. It might be possible and if so, I have not figure it out. On the other hand, if you think about it, a lot of politics is inherently negative. All legislation tends to be a tradeoff of some kind. There is always a negative to go along with the positive. To report only the positive, seems like reporting only half of the story and feels biased. Maybe the best we can do is to present political news in a neutral format.
