The main stream medai would never mention anything that made the US look good, or helpful.

We do the same for wounded enemy combantants, once they are disarmed, we treat their wounds. We did it in WWII, korea, and so on

True. I don't hear much about the effect the Americans had with the Kurds in Iraq.

The Media in the US doesn't really talk about the good America does.

Media overseas exploits the US's problems to distract their peoples from their country's problems.

That's an interesting story though.

That's a load of BS, to me it makes sense to spend more time looking over at Iraq where hundreds are dying, then to.. lets say, spend most of the news broadcast on a police shooting, which would really the top story here in the Netherlands if we were to stick to "our problems".

That's right, why should you care? You don't live in the US. You don't have to take crap on our level.

Well, what the USS Ravens' crew did, was a good thing for sure. But isn't any ship supposed to help another one if it is in troubles? I think it is international law that u gotta help when needed on the sea (I don't know for sure). It is typical for all the media that they rather give out "Bad News" than those good ones. It is human behaviour to be curious about accidents catastrophies,war, etc.

I think I would be the only one watching a news which would say: "Like the wise Coldplay once said: We live in a beutiful world". This mean no audience and so no money.

That's just how the media skews things, you don't have to outright distort distort a news story to convey your viewpoint, you just have to show only the ones that support your view.

Terrible shame that one has to dig so deep to find positive news these days. As that old belief goes, bad news sells better than good news. What on earth is this world coming to...

Its always been this way. Accomplishments never sell as well as tragedies do. They use to broadcast entire shuttle launches like there was nothing else happening in the world of news. Now your lucky to get a 10 second glimpse of them on CNN.
