How often do you watch the news? 

I haven't been watching it very much lately and I have to say that sometimes ignorance really is bliss.  Whenever I watch it's killing this, shooting that, crime, hate, doom and gloom.  It's nice to be on a break from the news!

I do see some things here or online but not nearly as much as before.

I am keeping up with international and financial news via Google News, but only briefly each day. I think once my daughter starts school I'll be more informed (at least about stocks and international conflicts and the upcoming elections), but really, I don't see a noticeable difference between my life now and when I watched the news years ago. Life is relatively the same. But I don't watch much tv anyway. I find it's mostly junk, even the news.

I haven't watched the news on tv in many years. I primarily use apps on my phone for both local and national/world news.

I go through our local news here online and sometimes yahoo or google news but I'd never voluntarily sit down and watch more than a few minutes of it. It's either depressing or uninteresting.

This summer, almost not at all. I typically catch up during the school year with CBS this morning and I get my half hour of NPR in there in the car. But this summer, yes, I've been oblivious.

Facebook, sadly, has hosted most of my world knowledge. Ugh.

I watch a few minutes of the news in the morning when I'm getting ready for work before I get my youngest son up. I also read stories online on msn's home page. I never watch the news at night before bed because it is so sad and depressing and I would go to bed crying.

Maybe once a month. I agree with you, ignorance is bliss.

 that's why I stopped watching the news.

Quoting Mommy2Boys0900: I I never watch the news at night before bed because it is so sad and depressing and I would go to bed crying.
