Re: How does the news get reported in your country?
I used to read massive amounts of news online thanks to Google News which pulls feeds from different sources. I also watched the BBC news religiously at 6:00pm each evening.
My wife told me for a long time that the focus on news was not particularly good as I was caught up in demoralizing discordant stories that were just that - stories. The truth about the world around us is not likely to be found on TV or the internet because those media are influenced heavily by commercial interests and personal views of the owners and boards of those news agencies. I stopped watching TV news and rarely go to online sources except those associated with finance; this happened about 1 1/2 years ago. I find my life quite a bit less stressful than when I was caught up in the news . I am not trying to deny what is happening around the world I just find I am more at peace knowing about my own local environment which I have some control over than events halfway around the world which I have no control over
