The world is not going to hell

In some ways, it's getting a lot better.  Malaria deaths are down almost 50% in 15 years:

Of course, you won't see this in the news because it doesn't reinforce any of the following:

  • The world is going to hell
  • Russia! Russia! Russia!
  • Republicans are the worst
  • Donald Trump is the only thing worse than a Republican
So okay, then.  Sure would be nice to have a news media that you can trust for actual, you know, reporting what's going on in the world that's important.
