Pessimists 1, Optimists 0
Hope magazine is going under:
After operating for nearly nine years at a loss, the magazine created to inform and inspire readers to strive to make a difference in their worlds will cease publication in its current form at the end of the year, according to Publisher Jon Wilson.
Wilson launched the magazine in 1996 in an effort to counter the "bad news" journalism he saw every day with stories about people who were striving to make the world a better place.
I never heard of this magazine. It's a great idea, but sadly, I'm not surprised it tanked. Why is it that bad news is more compelling than good news?
