To news or not to news

Having been in training all day and into the evening for close to two weeks, I got very little local/national/world news. And, you know, I haven't rushed back to it. The news is usually totally depressing (war, natural disasters, crime, ack!!) To quote Dr. Christiane Northrup:
If you spend much time watching television or reading newspapers, you are actually being barraged with the bad news from all over the world. If you have ever worked in journalism, you know the deal, "if it bleeds it leads," therefore they choose the news to have an effect on your arousal system to make you even more anxious.
I don't want to be out of the loop indefinitely but a little rest from anxiety has to be a good thing.
