I was a news junkie until the news got so depressing that I couldn't stand it.
I'm with you, my husband is the news junkie in the house (and the car radio) - personally, I've said for a long time that 24-hour news is the bane of our existence and if we fall apart, it'll be one of the reasons. I miss the good old days - when there was 1/2 hr of local new and 1/2 hr of national news on TV in the evening. Darn you, Ted Turner....spotsmom said:I have a husband who is totally addicted to political news. I was hoping it would change after the election, but it seems there's always something that the 24/7 news channels have to beat to death. It causes me a lot of stress to have to listen to all the negativity and ranting and raving, and unfortunately with the size of our house I can't get away from it. He watches this stuff for HOURS every day.
I also think that the 24/7 nature of news and far-end-of-the-spectrum channels has contributed mightily to the unfortunate polarization of American people. I have never in my life seen such rank disdain for opposing opinions and the spread of stuff that really isn't true.
Sorry, but tv news is my #1 hot button...
