Recently, there has been an ongoing debate over whether the media should give more coverage to positive things. This essay will discuss both points of view.

In the first stage, it is undeniable that good news can make a remarkable improvement in mental health. To be clearly stated, reading the newspapers focusing predominantly on positive content will instill optimism and positivity in people, which yield numerous benefits in their mentality as well as life expectancy. For example, the research of Boston University School of Medicine based on approximately 70000 men and women has shown that the most optimistic people can live about 15% longer and stand more chances of reaching age 85 or older. Secondly, the good news is able to generate the motivation to do humanitarian works. For instance, when exposing to some contents about volunteers or a charity organisation which can easily create a far-reaching campaign, people will be inspired and led to involve in it.

However, bad news also plays a salient role in life. Firstly, it can give indispensable warnings against some current issues. To clarify fully, as watching the negative stories that offer a wealth of information about disasters or diseases, people will take several precautions to avoid it. For example, in this Covid-19 pandemic, due to the number of deaths and infected patients reported, people are conscious of its hazards and self-isolate. Besides, bad news can also broaden the outlook on a problem. If people just aware of the positive sides of an issue, they cannot analyze and examine it objectively, which results in a multitude of misleading thoughts.

In conclusion, although I agree the positive news should be reported more on the media, I also think that it cannot replace the negative information.

Recently, there has been an ongoing debate (Really? I have not heard of such a debate. When you open an essay, do not use a "memorized" response like this. Examiners do not look with favour on the practice.. ) over whether the media should give more coverage to positive things. This essay will discuss both points of view.


Do not mention your essay or announce to the reader what you are going to say. This is substandard form. Examiners are looking for your thesis statement. That is the answer to the topic question and the position you take in your argument.

In this case, the question is: To what extent do you agree or disagree? In the first paragraph, you must answer the question with an adverb of extent, that is, if you want a good score. Some examples of these adverbs are: completely, wholeheartedly, fully, totally, somewhat, partly, partially, with reservations, with no reservations, not at all, and a little bit. Here is an example opening for this essay. It starts with personal knowledge of the essay topic and gives a thesis statement.

Sometimes I turn off the news because it seems like every story is a tragic one. It is quite depressing. So I totally agree with the statement that the media should include some feel-good stories which are positive and uplifting.



In the first stage, (wrong word) it is undeniable that good news can make a remarkable improvement in mental health. To be clearly stated, Reading the newspapers focusing predominantly on positive content will instill optimism and a positive outlook positivity in people, which yield numerous benefits in their mentality as well as life expectancy. For example, the research of Boston University School of Medicine based on approximately 70000 men and women has shown that the most optimistic people can live about 15% longer and have a good chance stand more chances of reaching age 85 or older. Secondly, Second, the good news is able to generate the motivation to do humanitarian works. (wrong form. "work" is non-count.) For instance, when exposing (wrong form) to some contents about volunteers or a charity organisation which can easily create a far-reaching campaign, (I do not understand this part.) people will be inspired and led to involve (wrong verb forms) in it. (For instance, if a news reporter broadcasts a local story about volunteering in a good cause, and says that more volunteers are needed, many people will be inspired to join in and help.)

However, bad news also plays a salient role in life. Firstly, First, it can give indispensable serious warnings about against some current issues. To clarify fully, as If they watch watching the negative stories that offer a wealth of information about disasters or diseases, people will take several precautions to avoid it. For example, in this Covid-19 pandemic, due to the number of deaths and infected patients reported, people are conscious of its hazards the risks of being exposed and self-isolate. Besides, bad news can also broaden the outlook on a problem. If people are just aware of the positive sides of an issue, they cannot analyze and examine it objectively, which results in a multitude of misleading thoughts.

In conclusion, although I agree the positive news should be reported more on the media, I also think that it cannot replace the negative information.
