To Watch Or Not To Watch- The News That Is

I do not watch much news any more. I tire of the media and the spin they all put on the news. They make things into much bigger problems that they need to be. The give too much publicity to those who do harm and not enough to those who do so much good. And then I miss things.

I found out a friend of mine lives very close to the fires in Mid West City, OK...just a matter of a few miles. I had no idea any of this was happening until someone sent me an email about it and asking for prayers for their home. So far they are fine but that could change quickly. Would knowing this have changed anything??? No. But I think the prayers and caring would have been felt by her.

Maybe it is about balance. Watch a little bit to know what is going on in the world or read the headlines on an online news source.

The picture is a bunny nest that is hard to see. It is there whether you can see it or not. Just like the news. It is there whether I know or not.

The sad part of this is that bad news sells. It's a business and they have to show what brings in the advertising bucks.
