New watchers or New papers? and you?

I'm just wondering.. who watches the news and reads news papers?

I know many of you stated you read the stir articles and such.. but is that ?

I've found that the news depresses me, and the new paper costs to much. The online articles online are some what to sassy for me or to much for my liking..

I don't follow actors or actress's much. And.. I have enough going on in my life I don't need to read about others..

so that's why I'm curious about all of you and if you do...

If you do read the papers.... do you like comics? they use to be my fav..

If there is a paper around I'll read it. If I see an article online that I'm interested in I'll read it. I don't care for the comics, I prefer the news. I do have local news on my homepage, so I can keep up with whats going on around me. As for celebrities, I like to read about them every now and again.

 I watch the news almost nightly and get a local (township) newspaper weekly. I am a voter and i stay involved in my community. You can not be effectively involved if you leave yourself ignorant to what is going on around you. I am a firm believer that ignorance is not bliss, it is ignorance & it will cost you.

Well here it's all about politics.. and I am not.

We are farmers.. and my dh is the brains about policits not I ...lol

I'm happy to just keep my family happy and to have a job.. which is very hard to keep these days.

As for the drama of the world and a war I cannot do anything about but pray for peace and hope that it will end.. the news offers me nothing else..but dispair..

as for the local news of a town of 500 it's 2 pages and its filled with who was arrested and elected.. that's about it.. oh and the weather.. so .. Is that ignorant? or was that not towards me?

I gotcha.. I just was making sure..:)

and... I didn't want to sound harsh.. just living out here I am pretty detached from the ongoings of the town.. and politics get me all confused..

I'm glad you are invloved in your town and read up on things.. :)

I always watch the news just to keep up with what's going on in the world.  I only get a news paper on Fridays to see what yard sales they are going to have on Saturday.  Lol
