📰 News media is too negative - we seek to balance that
Show Notes

In today's episode, most people have a pessimistic view of the future and of new technologies. One important reason is the negative bias in news media. We believe that humanity’s best days are ahead and that new technologies and science will get us there.

News media is too negative— help us balance that

In Swedish news media alone, there is predominantly negative news. 60% of Swedes say so a new comprehensive survey. Only 28% think that the news is balanced, that there is just as much positive as negative news, while just 5% think that the news is predominantly positive.

The world has gotten a lot better in the last decades, but most people still have a negative view of the future.

We think one important reason is the negative bias in news media.

Warp News will help to balance that with fact-based, optimistic news.
