Sometimes what the reporter of news perceives as bad news is actually good news, while, conversely, sometimes what is presented as good news is actually bad news. In any event, a good night’s sleep is always good news.
Maybe I’m a dinosaur, but I still watch network news on TV. Even though it often annoys the hell out of me. Bad news - they overdramatize most of it, and when it truly is bad, the platitudes get so thick and heavy it’s nauseating. The good news - too often it’s so saccharine - the high school sports team letting one disabled kid have a moment of glory - yeah, sweet but so overdone, etc.etc.etc. So why do I keep watching it? Who knows!
I prefer bad news first because my attention span is so short that by the time you finish telling me the good news at the end, I will have already forgotten about the bad news. The most recent news you give me is what tends to last longer in my mind.
