Nowadays, whatever people read news either in newspapers or on the internet, almost of the news are reporting negatively, such as protests, hijack and burglary. Only if during some festivals, reporters would reveal some postive contexts in the the news. These situations may be harmful for citizens whose mental health and psychological development. For me, typically, I partially agree with this statement.
Firistly, it is crucial that if the news reported something happens badly in our own city and country, these could increase residents' awareness as well as conscious to concern about their situations. That means their national-identify can be enhanced. Given the circumstance, when there was a large anti-goverment proptest in 2019 in Hong Kong, some residents would think of their responsibilities for the city and tend to be peacemakers to make some decisions to stop the protest. It is clear that negative news would be awakened people's mind to worried more about their city and country.
Even so, if there were a lot of news just concentrated on issues and disatsters, it could be weighed on people's mind. So that this cause more negative feelings and emotions spread to the city and country. For example, people being bule and upset in their daily lifes resulted from 2019 anti- goverment protests in Hong Kong, As a result of this, the economic development downturn seriously and many people felt more anger to the goverment and someone whose opinions are in an opposite side. This situation can not be resolved completely until now.
To sumarize, in general speaking, in one hand news fousing on harzards and crisis would increase people concerning, but on the other hand these could be harmful for our mental health and psychological debelopment. In my opinion, the key is moderatation. It is no doubt that making a balance is good for a society development.
