Poulsen understands that journalism is about giving the readers a whole of the reality, but she thinks that they tend to go for the story most likely to sale, instead of trying harder to also report the other side.

“At the end of the day you need to have a job, you have a family to support, but I think that it’s a very good sign that this things are being discussed,” said Poulsen about positive news.

For Harristhøj, it’s an obligation to go beyond the bad and show that countries like Argentina can be more than corruption or crime.

I have being trying the whole time, to show the diversity and the beauty of this society as well as the beauty of Denmark,” said Harristhøj.
