I used to be really invested in the global news; hell, at one point I was studying to be a journalist. I still care a bit, but nowhere near as much as I used to. It's good to know what's happening aro

I do, because what happens out there affects you whether you care or not. Some of it is pretty bad, and the news aren't generally good, but it's better to face a problem than ignoring it.

People really only care about the "news" of some celebrity having a new baby. You think people wanna talk about how places won't have water soon or our species will die? 'Naw, people wanna hear abou

All of the main news networks and newspapers are liars serving to manufacture consent for institutionalized corruption, so not really.

While I do try to keep myself informed on global news, I have realized that most if not all news outlets given their nature serving some type of benefactor I have very least stopped believing anything at face value. I try my best to read on it online, read sources etc. So do I care about news globally, I mean sure American politics do interest me and I try to be in on politics in Asia I don't care as much about European news as let's be fair very little information about it given all their censorship you'll have a hard time getting anyone to comment on anything just reminds you again of the great importance of having freedom of speech. Same story is true for Asian countries however, it's different somehow as I've talked to people from all over the world and usually I tell them what the "news" say and they all pretty much laugh at it and tell me anything you hear about this country is propaganda. Therefore I really don't follow the news so much as just trying to be well informed, interesting how we living in the information age have now so much information that we actually have to take great precautions to make sure what we are reading is true and that it is from someone that's only trying to write actual news regardless every news writer usually serves an audience and they want to hear what they want to hear so to speak. While I would encourage anyone to be well informed I would ask to keep an open mind but also to criticize the information while reading sources on it as well.

I tend to stay away from the world news. Nothing good happens (or good things are get ignored). And most news are trying to push their point of view anyway

The only world news I watch deals with agricultural things. They say it like it is, no opinions on it and move on. For example "The country of Russia is currently experiencing a drought in parts of its highest yielding areas. They have had x less precipitation compared to the last decade. The markets today have rose slightly to none, with corn going a penny higher and wheat at an all time low for this time of year..."  no opinions, just here it is and that's it.

Most world news seems to be recycled US or tainted with a view pushing one way or the other on events that aren't exactly news worthy it seems.

I don't, because lately there hasn't been any good news whatsoever. Ninety percent of the items on the news piss me off in one way or another, so I just save myself the stress and ignore it completely. I can't fix these problems anyway. You could say I'm just putting my head in the sand, and you'd be right. I'll stop doing that once I get the feeling I can actually do something about any of the myriad things I consider to be wrong with the world.
