debating

posted by .

Our debating topic is 'That good news is not news.'
I am on the negative team so I am saying that good news is, in fact news. I personally believe the good news really isn't news and so I'm struggling to debate for the negative team. I am the first speaker.

So far, I have come up with:
-effects of good news and bad news on the mind (think age groups)
-positivity (good news strengthens the soul)
-good news is inspiring. (japan earthquake and queensland flood heroes, opportunity for young people who have become successful to have their moment in the spotlight)
-there is hope for the sick, injured and suffering when good news is given to them.

what else can i mention?
thanks so much!
