Do you either watch the news on the TV, listen to the radio or read newspapers?

I don't do any of them and never have.

It's probably selfish of me but I'm not interested in what is going on in the world.

I watch the news on occassion on TV if I know that there's going to be something interested being reported such as a natural disaster, bombings, homicides etc.

Otherwise, except for seeing the weather forecast, i'm not really that interested.

I read the newspaper daily, but I don't watch the TV news, it depresses me. I don't NEED/want to know that a house fell apart in some far away country, does it help me? No, does it make me better? No.

No, I never watch the news, read the news, hear the news. Tip: it's all old hat, what they do. Makes me nod ... or run out of there, screaming cells and bar none, for the noise is louder than at eleven, and all the rest of me is tired, tired, tired of it.

New news is what we need. Scream or snooze ... we win, lass, with all channels anchormen.

Naw, don't be versed in guilt; you've done nothing but stop the noise and advertising from rooting in your neurons.

I don't watch tv news or read news. I have listened to news on the radio, though I haven't been doing that lately.

Dont worry, they don't actually tell you what is going on in the world...they just tell you what you want to believe or "they" want you to believe(don't even ask who "they" are.) It all sounds like 1984 double speak. You want to learn about something specific going on in the world...watch The Daily Show or Colbert Report or goggle it.

I don't watch but live with someone who has CNN on nonstop...it's like bizzare a pacifier of familiar voices that act as a stim like comfort to him...It still amazes me how much time they can waste saying nothing...it's a lot like soap operas my aunt used to watch...she could miss a week of them and still pick up there and know what was going on because it was the same story they were telling last week.

Not much. I find most of it worrying and depressing.

My mom loves to watch the news everyday. I don't care much for the news.

I read the news on the BBC website and occasionally get a newspaper. I am more interested the science and education news than the rest of it though.

I check everything on the Internet. (Sometimes I read also covers of tabloids not buying them - after all, if something really interesting is happening, it's always written on the front cover, the rest of such a newspaper is not that interesting).

I get my news via the Internet and public radio. Cable news networks suck.

I used to love watching the news, but where I live now there is only one available station and it hardly comes in and it sux,
and I can not afford cable at this time.
so I just enjoy the time with my son insted, as it should be.
