News Is Irrelevent In The Modern World
I was reading another forum and a user remarked that the news is irrelevant in the modern world. The forum tends to be frequented by Zoomers and Millennials, though I have no idea the age of the person who posted this... assuming they are even a person! But I thought about this awhile and I think this person is right.
They're certainly right for a minority of people and I I expect these ranks to swell. But could this be true for the majority?
What do you think? Do you mind the news? Do people around you mind it? Do you know anyone who ignores it all together?
I like this topic but I’m not sure I can answer it concisely.
I “hear” it because it’s everywhere, but I’m often sus when I keep hearing them all talk about the same thing in the same way. So I go off, elsewhere to look.
My mother definitely minds it. Others do, too, but other than my mother, because she likes to talk about it, in my real life, we rarely talk about it and if so, just lightly.
Not really irrelevant because it still influences far too many who absorb and believe it without question, without even noticing the personal bias often obvious in the announcer's speech.
News on TV is irrelevant because modern news only focuses on the surface of issues or only present censored or altered versions of events. Think of how narcissistic a career as a lying news host can be. Wanting all eyes on them, lying, manipulating or even just doing as scripted or instructed to "look good." The only valid forms of news are internet essays and articles by real people and magazines/newspapers in which a lot of effort and thought is put into the presentation of the information.
