Happy News? Or Startling Coincidence?

CNN has a riveting story about some dude ("Byron Reese") who created a website to cater to... happy news. delivers just the sort of brain-damaged, intravenous-feeding-tube news Americans love to read about. What can you expect to find at Happy News?
The 30,000 job cuts announced by General Motors Corp. last month? You won't read it in HappyNews, but stories about hiring are welcome. Even sports stories are mostly out of bounds, "because one team wins and one team loses," Reese explained.

Way to keep it happy, guy!
