I’m just curious… do you watch the news, or are you like me and don’t really pay attention?
I used to watch the news all the time. When I lived in the NW Suburbs of Chicago, I used to LOVE WGN’s morning show. Watched it every day while I got ready for work. Then, we moved back to Ohio, and the morning shows there were boring. The evening news was just depressing. For awhile I held out long enough for the 5 day forecast, but now I get that right on my google homepage. It’s pretty accurate, too.
I get my news online – mostly from bloggers and friends. If it’s important enough, I’ll find out about it somehow. If my evening programs are interrupted for messages from the president, or breaking news, the tv is flipped off and I do other stuff. It’s just not how I want to spend my “veg” time.
The internet is just so much more convenient, and I don’t have to deal with all the other “fluff” – or wait half an hour just to hear the weather.
