I think we all agree that the media can get us down, what with its panic-mongering and crisis-conjuring.
But the reverse is also true: we have the media to thank for much of our entertainment—much of what makes us feel good. Often, we look to the media—particularly TV and the web—for antidotes to the bad news pedalled by the very same source. So today I thought I’d ask:
Which site makes you feel good?For me, there are a few, but these are the tried-and-true standouts—the reliable day-savers!
Colbert Nation is another laugh a minute for me. I can forget any cares at Colbert Nation: Steven’s always pointing out something (usually horrifying) that I had no awareness of, and making light of it at the same time. This is a news show I can get behind. Crushingly, the videos are no longer available to view down here in Australia. On the upside, there’s usually enough other super-witty content on the site to keep me going.
The Oatmeal’s comics are a surefire way to get a smile going even on the gloomiest days. Hammer Pants vs. Hipsters is by far the most amusing infographic I’ve seen in a very, very long time. Eerily accurate, too…
What about you? Spill the beans on the sites that make you feel good. We’ll thank you for ‘em!
