Lina is with her team at a restaurant, and they’re discussing what to broadcast as the main story for the next evening. The whole team seems to be in agreement that the answer is “the news people want to hear.” So, Lina tells her sunbae that she has good news and bad news, and asks which one he wants to hear first. The sunbae says good news, so Lina complies and informs him that he got tickets for a K-pop concert with all the hottest stars. The guy gets so pumped that he nearly forgets that there're bad news. Lina tells him the bad news: The sunbae has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. All of a sudden, the guy is devastated and demanding why Lina didn’t tell him sooner that he was dying. Lina responds, “Why? Cancer isn’t what people want to hear about. The concert is, so it should come first.”

The moral of the story is obvious. News you need to hear comes before news you want to hear. Maybe we ᴡᴀɴᴛ to hear the exciting stuff, but we ɴᴇᴇᴅ to hear the important stuff. We deserve to know it. Even if we don’t want it, even if it makes us upset, we have to know it.
