If you turn on the television right now, you’ll likely be subjected to an unending deluge of bad news and depressing reports. To be fair, there’s a lot of negative stuff happening in the world right now and seeing as how the media thrives on sensational stuff, it can’t help but report about this virus.
But there’s more going on out there than viruses, narrative wars, and Tiger King. So much good is happening that doesn’t get covered. Things that would brighten our spirits and improve the general outlook of the population.
Enter Office and 13 Hours star, John Krasinski. While many celebrities are taking it upon themselves to make stupid videos of themselves naked in bathtubs or collaborating to sing a song about how there’s no Heaven to people who are dying, Krasinski wants to take a different route.
Taking to YouTube and creating a channel just for it, Krasinski put together his own news report called “SGN” (Some Good news) with a logo designed by his daughters. Completely unproduced and without any flash or flare, Krasinski shows you stories you may have missed in the darkness that show a more positive side to the planet, give out props to those who deserve it such as healthcare workers, and interviews with people that make you feel good like Steve Carrell and a heroic girl named CoCo who beat cancer.
Krasinski manages to put on a very heartwarming and, dare I say, necessary show for the internet and it seems like we can soon expect more!
Watch for yourself.
I like this idea from Krasinski so much that every time he releases one, I’m going to promote it here on RedState. I think good work deserves to be spread as far as possible.
