visionand focus ... I agree that we are better off spending that time with our families.
McHamlet, I think online headlines are enough too!
gulnazahmad, yes news is everywhere and I totally agree that is mostly negative and surely does induce rage and depression in some people.
JGoul, it makes sense to me!
penlady, I agree that we need to know SOME of what is going on however we can find this out via friends and family or in the newspaper or online. Understandably, watching news at night would affect sleep I think.
PlatinumOwl4, I agree that they do not have our best interests at heart, otherwise they would balance the negative with the positive much more.
wingedcentaur, yes reading is way better! I guess you are right about working out how our world got to where it is today. I also think it is important to concentrate on how we want our lives, and the world to be in the future and do all we can to ensure a healthier place for all of us.
Yes StevenRobaina, you are right about that.
Mattdigiulio, it is definitely important to know and care about others that is for sure, however I do not feel that the nightly news will help with this. Thank you for telling me about "Democracy Now" program. I will check it out.
chasemillis, thank you for your input.
greenza, thank you too. I just feel that the news could be approached in a different way&is full of things our subconscious does not need to store!
JTWalters... good one
Faceless 39 .. I am with you there!
