We are living in one of the safest ages ever, this needs to be reflected in our media. Instead all I see is violence.
Good news doesn't sell. Blood on TV does.

I guess I'm after dry facts. That's what I want. I don't want to pay for speculation, I can do that on my own.

Inhale a little water into your nose, hold it closed for a minute with your fingers, then blow it.

Put some Vicks or vapor rub under your nose.

Just some friendly advice.
