Watching or reading News gives us the knowledge of what going on in our world! Some news can be a good and make us feel happy about it! But some is not so good at all! Does news affect you at all? Or do you just sit and watch like the normal telivision show! Thanks.

I read the news everyday and I get angry whenever I do. It's always bad news I read about in the paper with all the corruption, scandals, killings, rising oil prices and disasters in the world and in my own country. It kind of makes me feel very helpless but at the same time empowers me to take more action to fix the situation around me.

Hi, It would be great if they focused on more positive news but I guess it just doesn't sell as many papers! I think that it is good though that you have chosen to take more action rather than do nothing about it. Thanks for the response.

I think reading the news just makes people more stressed out. If I want to know if anything important is going on I ask a collegue. Bad news you'll always hear of. But I guess the world is going crazy.

Hi natechia, I agree that some news can be stressful but there are some that would make you happy as well, but very rare. I think that is nice that you can share the news with your colleagues. Thanks for the response.
