Jimmy Fallon Asks Local News Anchors To Deliver Some Good News For Once

It couldn't come at a better time.

The news, whether it's local or national, isn't always positive. These days, things seem particularly disheartening, as a recent poll found that 82 percent of voters feel "disgusted" by the 2016 presidential election. We at A Plus like to give you a little relief from the constant negativity, and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon shares that philosophy.

"Sometimes it feels like there's nothing but bad news out there, especially with the election going on," Fallon acknowledged on Friday night. "We here at The Tonight Show have decided to do something about that."

Fallon debuted a new installment of a segment that he likes to call "I've Got Good News and Good News," in which he enlists local NBC news anchors from around the country to share some positive news for once — "stories that we wish were true, stories that make us feel happy." And it couldn't come at a better time.

"In medical news, flossing has been found to be complete bullcrap," says one anchor. 

Elsewhere, that crying baby on your flight has finally quieted down, and nobody knows you tripped on the sidewalk. But most importantly, "Your favorite sports teams can now hear your suggestions through the television, and they love the helpful advice."
