    I think that sometimes the news is very depressing. Is there a way to post happier news? and if there is no happy news that YWN knows of then post random topics that are not so sad.
    Anyway,I understand that Galus is bitter but maybe, just maybe we can brighten it up a bit.
    Hoping to see Moshiach soon!

    (Actually, drop “stated.”)

    YWN’s stated goals probably don’t include covering world news.

    As an addition to the OP’s question, I’d like to know why the latest Israeli leftist outrages have somehow escaped notice by the intrepid YWN reporters and editors. One was the shameful “Betzelem” organization denouncing of Israel in the UN last week. The other is the utterly insane permission granted to a BDS supporting “student” — an American citizen — to enroll in Hebrew University. A gaggle of leftist lawyers presented her case to the Israeli supreme court, that ruled in her favor.
    Perhaps if Yeshiva World would report such incidents, and there are more than these two — it will become more difficult to bash NK, Satmar, and other “extremists.” If there is a sizeable portion of the secular Israeli public has practically the same opinion of the state as the frum “extremists” and potentially can cause much more damage to the state (they in fact do cause damage!) — so all the endless vituperation on YWN against the frum extremists pales into a laughing stock compared to the damage these secular leftists are causing. So, since that would have “undesirable implications” (i.e., that the frum extremists are not quite the “danger” YWN makes them out to be — so the website has chosen to downplay or ignore the dangerous betrayals being perpetrated by much of the Israeli left. Damage that is way more serious that anything the NK Satmar clowns are capable of. If the excuse of “not airing one’s dirty laundry in public (i.e., publicizing the secular leftist depredations) is invoked — then it certainly applies to the antics of the frum “extremists.” What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

    There might just not be a lot of interesting news right now. Maybe they could look into better ways to fill the lulls. More Op-Ed’s, halachic pieces, financial news, etc.

    FACT ABOUT NEWS : news is ALWAYS bad cause who cares who won the lottery (happy news) who made their flight last minute etc…. (you dont even know the person flying)

    to end on good news how about living on this famous line “no news is good news”
    so thats the best way to get your good news
