What would happen if we talked about a different type of news story?
You can totally stop being an ignorant racist right now. This instant. You don't even have to lift a finger. All you have to do is learn. I've said it before and I'll say it again: it is never a bad thing to learn.
When it comes to building your brand and standing out in the market, so many CEOs only focus on the big picture and on the
The news business has devolved into just another branch of the entertainment business. Many are well aware of this. Few, though, appreciate the degree to which even the elite media -- e.g., The New York Times -- contribute to the phenomenon.
In her new book "Broadcasting Happiness," Michelle Gielan explains why we need more positive communication in our personal lives and in the news media. We discuss how Gielan's approach complements our #WhatsWorking initiative at HuffPost.

Once upon a time what you didn't see was sexy. There was just a little less showing and as a result, what showed had impact. The era of the oversharing has descended upon us and bemoan it we may but turn away we do not.
The frantic pace of broadcast journalism is fueled by an eternal need to feed the beast. A beast that never sleeps and is never satisfied. We are often working so hard to get something on air that we forget the impact the images might have on the viewer.
