I have always watched the news and kept up with current affairs where possible, however of late I find all the bad stuff makes me feel depressed and upsets me (and there is a lot of it, even locally)...so I have decided to only watch one News...on TV at night,...the others I 'mute' out like I do the adverts!
I don't watch the news at all - we don't have television - but I like to read the headlines first thing every morning and then listen to various news bulletins on the radio throughout the day as and when I am near a radio. No set pattern to that one!
I do noyt watch the news EVERY night as it is often so darn sad and depressing! when I do watch it ,It is usually SBS as there seems to be a far broader coverage than the other channels.ABC included! I do catch up with the news on radio every day.or online.
I rarely watch the news. I usually only see it when I'm visiting someone else who habitually watches it. I get most of my news via the internet, although I also admit that I usually only look at news I am interested in, I am woefully ignorant with certain things that are going on in the world.
it seems the three commercial tv stations want to saturate us with news. And it's not world news. You only hear about other world news on ABC or SBS. If it's not news it's adverts for news. I watch once a day - that's enough! Now if you are asking about the amount of advertising on tv, got plenty to say about that too lol.
I like to watch the Channel 7 news every night to keep abreast of local news and international news. Yes, it is depressing some days, but you can't hide away and pretend it's not happening. I like to be informed of what's going on in my town and around the world.
I am a bit of a news junkie and watch sbs, aljazeera and abc morning and night, read it off my phone on public transport, read on internet and news headlines comes on when listening to the radio, I don't watch much commercial tv at all.... I like to be informed and I realise how lucky australia is when one sees what is going on overseas!
