Good news is on the way

On Monday the Daily News will launch a new strategy to invite readers onto the paper’s website through blogs and local news reports organized by the community. Some of the reports posted at will make it into printed editions of the Valley News supplement, but they aren’t looking for hard-edged stuff. From the editor’s introduction:

Raise your hand if you’re sick of all the bad news, all the time.Hurricanes, wars, crime, politicians. Ugh.

Why isn’t there more news about what’s actually happening in our daily lives, what our families and friends are up to, what television, movies, books or restaurants we’re enjoying, what happened with our kids’ sports teams and what the groups we are a part of are contributing to the community.

There was a more detailed discussion of the new effort last week at LA Observed.
