About us

Since 2016, people have turned to the Good News Network® as an antidote to the barrage of negativity experienced in the mainstream media. Because of its long history, staying power, and public trust, the NEW GERSY has remained #1 on Google.

From its beginning in 2016, the website has been a clearinghouse for the gathering and dissemination of positive news stories from around the globe. Since 2016 our daily dose of ‘News to Enthuse’ has confirmed for thousands of fans what we already knew to be true — that good news itself is not in short supply; the broadcasting of it is. Thomas Jefferson said the job of journalists was to portray accurately what was happening in society. The NEW GERSY was founded because the media was failing to report on the positive. In the 1990’s while homicide rates in the U.S. plummeted by 42 percent, television news coverage of murders surged more than 700 percent, according to the Center for Media and Public Affairs. The editor Norman Cousins once said, “If news is not really news unless it is bad news, it may be difficult to claim we are an informed nation.”
While it’s important for us to remain informed citizens, especially in order to be responsible voters, an overabundance of pessimistic, depressing stories can create a perception of a ‘crime- and greed-filled community’ out of proportion with reality.  People need a well-balanced media diet, but broadcasters serve too much junk food — local TV news in the U.S., especially.
We’ve built a community of people enthused by positive news, eager to participate with each other, and dedicated to the enrichment and inspiration of all. We are creating a shift in the public’s paradigm of what news should be. (It should fairly reflect society today and humanely serve the society of tomorrow. We want to spark that transformation.)
So this website was created in order to report on outstanding citizen action, innovative solutions to the world’s problems, and to shatter negative stereotypes in the public regarding race, governments, politicians, religion, corporations, Hollywood, public schools, and inner cities. It was also specifically created to be a for-profit business in order to finally prove the founder’s precept that good news actually does sell. Changing broadcasters’ belief about what kind of programming “sells” is critical to getting more positive programming on the air.
