I hate to watch the news...

98% of the time- sad stories:
-> death
-> kidnapping
-> death
-> drugs
-> death

1%- sports

0.5%- weather

0.5%- something good

Am I the only one who hates watching the news? Like seriously?

A few weeks ago, I sat with my family to watch the news and a 9 month year old baby was shot.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.

P.S. Shipped Sailey before it was cannon bitches.

Actually, I kind of enjoy hearing about the War in Donbass, ISIL, and the likes. Perhaps that's because it's history in the making...

That's why I stopped watching the news and just listen to NPR, where their scheduling and podcasts allow you to customize the kind of news you receive. It also cuts out the fluff.
