Katie Couric talks about changing the way news is covered:

Viewers told her they want more perspective and
"a better understanding of the ramifications of the news," she says. "I

historical background and "how is this relevant to their lives. (And)
we heard from many people the news is just too depressing. Obviously,
we can't sugar-coat what's going on, but there are cases where we can
be more solution-oriented."

Now, there's promise in that part about the news being too depressing. Katie could fix that easily by paying a little more attention to the good stories coming out of Iraq and Afghanistan. It's not sugar-coating; it's just perspective. She doesn't even have to do the research-- just go on over to
