There are a few reasons for you to stop keeping track of the latest news. There is nothing positive indeed and the best decision you can make is to quit reading and watching it.
1. News is misleading
Never trust the things you read in newspapers or hear on the radio and TV. News there is always misleading and the truth is either under-rated or over-rated. It may even be not revealed if reporters and TV management as well as the government decide that you should know something. They can present information in a way which is a total lie and you will still believe such news simply because there is no one around to tell you what the real situation is like. Most of the news we watch on TV is negative and scary. If this is reality then how have we managed to survive till now? The world should have collapsed a few centuries ago then! Yet we are still alive. Why is it so? That’s because the importance of terrorism is over-rated while the greatest achievements in science, arts and medicine are hardly ever mentioned. As a matter of fact, bad news is easy to produce and it creates reaction and sensation as well as increases ratings.
