Why I don't like to watch TV news
This is why I don't like to watch TV news as often as I used to.
As kids, we were always encouraged to watch the news on TV so that we could stay tuned to current affairs and I do feel that it helped inculcate a good habit.
However, most of the news content today is horrifying by itself. The lurid sensationalization with which it is reported by news channels only makes it much worse. We now take care not to put on the news channel while the kids are around.
Maybe, its time we got separate news channels for the kids.
