why have Journalists got to make everything sound worse then what it really is?

To sell papers, generate clicks and therefore advertising and then keep their job. In the process, make a name for themselves and then feel like they are having a big impact.

The great 2019 poll about whether Tricky should be banned or not ended in favour of Tricky staying, 75% to 25%

Not all journalists. When you really want to know the story, find some non-sensationalist media and just get the facts and maybe the story behind the headlines. There's plenty of good journos working in factual media who don't make things worse, bigger, or anything else.

Where are these journos? I am over everything being such a controversial subject. I am actually classed as a skeptic, denier and a **** just from not thinking the world is ending in the immediate to near future.

im like you Troy, I now hate watching the news or even social media.

all the Journos have to do is state the facts not embellish
like "Smashing" the Maximum Temperature, is was .2 of a Degree

Before yesterday, they were excited about the hottest ever heatwave coming to kill us all. Turns out it didn't do that so now they're disappointed.

That'd be doubly bad. Journos embellishing someone already embellishing.

I've found one:
https://www.betootaadvocate.com/entertainment/desperate-scientists-form-hillsong-rock-band-in-last-ditch-effort-to-get-pm-to-listen-to-them/

All that extreme language : "Desperate, last ditch, unprecedented emergency. Urgent, appalling, severe, ravaged collapse..." I'm starting to see what you mean.

I hope you're taking the piss there as Betoota's satire.

Hmmm. I just Googled it. Not only is it fake news, but millenials are responsible.

Well, that just makes everything even worse than it really is.
