Well, I have been here for a little while now and I am getting my eyes tired. So I will close up shop for now and go and watch some news on TV. I hope the news won't just be about the latest about "Clinton and megalomaniac Trump". Because it is getting too much already. I wish CNN did not devote so much time to politics. They used to be more balanced, don't you think so? I believe that CNN gave way too much coverage to Trump, of course, he knows how to get in the news. It would also be nice to watch some happy news sometimes, not just killings and riots.

I think that 'happy news' must be a oxymoron. Just doesn't seem to happen together. I am tired of Trump big time. I like the nice local stories they have occasionally. I don't watch CNN.

I hardly ever watch the news, only the weather. There is only bad on the news all of the time.

@marlina I should be better informed, but I am such a high anxiety person, it makes me worry and have panic attacks.

I used to watch the news more when there was more good news on. Now, like you, I have noticed the killings, and so forth are front and center. Enjoy.

I totally agree on you that the news seem to be too much of bad news than a good or happy ones. Happy news seems to be rare! :| The news reports just workd this way- the more attention one topic is getting, the more it shows about it, maybe the reason Thrump and Hilary news are going on and on.

wE get a lot of the American political news on our screens here in the United Kingdom as well. It is very entertaining compared to our really quite bland brand of political news. Trump really does know how to use the media - he is no apprentice at that is he? CNN International Edition is a great service. I think that from them we do get a balanced coverage of what's going on in the world today. I don't know if the coverage is the same in Canada. As you say some happy news sometimes or mmore often would be good but the news can only report the major events happening and sadly more people will tune in to news about killings and riots and how storms decimate communities and of course things like the build up to the forthcoming American election than happy smiley stuff.

Trump is full of it alright.... I rarely watch the news but left it on last night to hear the weather with storms coming in. Then I also had to hear about a man getting shot, and another one getting run over on his bicycle.....those were in Wichita. I don't recall any good news.

Not surprised at all that you did not hear any good news. We rarely hear those. Every morning when I turn the radio on, I hear about another shooting or stabbing.

News does tend to be about the negatives that happen in life to others. If and when anything good happens, if looking in the paper you usually have to look past the front page and read everything. It could be such a small article that most would miss it.

You are so right about the good news being buried at the end.

CNN is too much berating Trump and Fox does that with Clinton. Tired of it all.They are supposed to be unbiased but most of the newcasters on those are not.

I agree totally which is why I don't watch the news. It would be nice to find something devoted to something good happening somewhere in the world instead of all the insanity going on everywhere. Just one more month and the political news will be over. Election day is November 8.

We don't have regular TV we have Netflix and so we hear news by osmosis as we live in a small town and word travels fast. So if theres anything serious going on we can count on our friends to keep us up to date on world & local events. I wouldn't want to watch all the negative politics anyways.

They had been showing it (politics) because it is in the beat. Better tune in to other TV channels that shows other programs, but people should also be informed of the events around them.
