      Here's an article that says more about the news than the news itself says ;)

      Anyone heard the term global drama previously? it's given to news headlines also freshly my personal favourite the extra dose of negativity very well suites for news. I don't consume news & its consequences are I may know less about surroundings but whereas human nature is what happens in surrounding so if it could be my negative dose I'm happy to be unaware.

      People who consume the most news generally have the most skewed perceptions.

      From our attitudes to immigrants to the content of our dreams, it can sneak into our subconscious and meddle with our lives in surprising ways.

      The news is accidentally warping our perception of reality and not necessarily for the better.
