I am not a big fan of 24 hour news and the various news channels we have today.
I remember in the early days of television that you had the news in the early morning, at noon and six that evening. At first it generally was a 15 minute newscast, later it went to 30 minutes.
I kinda apply the great philosopher Winnie the Pooh's take to watching all the news today. Today I think far too many people get completely bent out of shape by news watching and believing everything they hear and see.
"Don't underestimate the value of doing nothing--
of just going along and not listening to all the things you could hear."
In some cases I think we all would be better off in doing nothing in comparison to watching too much news and certainly we all would be better off if there were some things we did not hear. Again I said too much news, I did not say any. But in my opinion today we have more than often is needed.
