Sometimes you contribute content online and forget that you were once a contributer and writer for a publication. I used to be a writer for Wired.com when they had a program letting young entrepreneurs contribute content and did a few editorials for Today.com. Recently old publications done for Engadget.com popped back up online and are now visible at: https://www.engadget.com/about/editors/richart-ruddie Not sure why they suddenly decided to index and showcase some of my older contributions but perhaps it's because of all the recent press around the work that I'm doing for countries around the world. The Irish Central website and the Times of Malta have both featured me of late and other well known global publications have approached me about covering similar stories. Continue reading

Below is a piece from at the New York Times about how we are attracted to negative news and that the major media players in the USA overly promote negative headlines with pessimism regarding COVID-19 vs. other countries, scientific journals, and smaller media outlets that tended to cover it more on a factual basis instead of promoting their opinion. I will add my commentary and thoughts in bold below: Is bad news the only kind? Bruce Sacerdote, an economics professor at Dartmouth College, noticed something last year about the Covid-19 television coverage that he was watching on CNN and PBS. It almost always seemed negative, regardless of what was he seeing in the data or hearing from scientists he knew. When Covid cases were rising in the U.S., the news coverage emphasized the increase. When cases were falling, the coverage instead focused on those places where cases were rising. And when vaccine research began showing positive results, the coverage downplayed it, as far as Sacerdote could tell. But he was not sure whether his perception was correct. To check, he began working with two other researchers, building a database of Covid coverage from every major network, CNN, Fox News, Politico, The New York Times and hundreds of other sources, in the U.S. and overseas. The researchers then analyzed it with a social-science technique that classifies language as positive, neutral or negative. The results showed that Sacerdote’s instinct had been right — and not just because the pandemic has been mostly a grim story. The U.S. media is an outlier The coverage by U.S. publications with a national audience has been much more negative than coverage by any other source that the researchers analyzed, including scientific journals, major international publications and regional U.S. media. “The most well-read U.S. media are outliers in terms of their negativity,” Molly Cook, a co-author of the study, told me. About 87 percent of Covid coverage in national U.S. media last year was negative. The share was 51 percent in international media, 53 percent in U.S. regional media and 64 percent in scientific journals. Notably, the coverage was negative in both U.S. media outlets with liberal audiences (like MSNBC) and those with conservative audiences (like Fox News). By The New York Times | Sources: Bruce Sacerdote, Ranjan Sehgal and Molly Cook Sacerdote is careful to emphasize that he does not think journalists usually report falsehoods. The issue is which facts they emphasize. Still, the new study — which the National Bureau of Economic Research has published as a working paper, titled, “Why is all Covid-19 news bad news?” — calls for some self-reflection from those of us in the media. If we’re constantly telling a negative story, we are not giving our audience the most accurate portrait of reality. We are shading it. We are doing a good job telling you why Covid cases are rising in some places and how the vaccines are imperfect — but not such a good job explaining why cases are... Continue reading
