I am not a fan of TV or radio news. I used to be as my mom likes to say. She is right. I used to love the news and current events and would soak it up on TV. I have been quoted at 5 years old giving opinions of who I thought would presidential race at the time. Reagan vs Carter if you are wondering. By the time I was in my 20’s In the 90’s I started watching less regular news and more financial news like CNBC. After a while I couldn’t even watch that. Back then I am not sure what made me stop. I think it was just that news was depressing and repetitive on TV.
It turns out that if you blog long enough you will cover the same or similar topics again. I found a post I wrote in August 2005 about another reason why I don’t watch the news. For the record that post confirms I was reading the news from Reuters long before I worked there so I think its ok for me to say I think they are a great news source even though I work in there. As always the opinions expressed on this blog are my own and not those of my employer.
