Media Sensationalism. Productive or destructive? What we see and hear influences how  we feel and what we do! by  Of 2 Minds Coaching and Counseling  on Monday, May 18, 2009 at 12:42pm Awhile ago I wrote a letter and sent it to our Mayor and the editors of our local newspapers.The summary of it reads  below. The letter addresses sensationalizing gang violence. In the months that have followed this letter, I have  actually noticed an improvement in how gang crimes are reported, and new commercials that are very effective! It  feels encouraging. I know my letter is only one voice, but each voice counts. Our national and local media  sensationalizes tragedy, violence, and corruption every day. Either we learn to deaden our senses, or we become  accustomed to feeding our minds with negative stories. I firmly believe all of the things we see and hear have  influence over how we feel. What will it take to bring more consciousness to the media makers, and reporters? What  can each of us do? Every Sunday I wake up early to watch Charles Osgood and "Sunday Morning" on CBS, because  it is the only "good news" show I know. I would love more programs on television like this one, and "good news"  newspapers, magazines, and radio shows that blast us with news that is inspiring.  I am interested in your comments and reflections. Feel free to also email me [email protected]
