    Do you pride yourself on keeping up with current events?

    Or is the news simply too bleak and depressing for you now?

    Which camp do you fall into?

    I watch it far less than I used to.

    Sometimes I could kick myself, but the world seems to be going to Hell in a handcart and it is is difficult - and seems ultimately pointless - to willingly bombard myself with all of that when one remains powerless to do pretty much anything about it.

    I see why you have that attitude. I keep up with the news but I think that’s exacerbating my depression. I should stop but it’s too addicting.

    I haven't watched the news in years! I hate it! We are just pawns in the chess board of the tyrants and i don't want any part of it!

    No, but neither do I necessarily chase it...

    Unless it's on a particular topic that interests me.

    Oh and I generally follow the adventures of the Orange Orangutan... Comedy gold! :emoji_grin:

    I read more new than I watch. That being said, I'm too swamped with news to read every single article that interests me. I try to keep up with politics and the Trump saga, mostly. I get most of the political news from The Palmer Report, MSN, NPR, and (to a somewhat lesser extent) Yahoo!
