Thanks for putting into clear words what I've always hated about "news".  I do not
watch, no longer own, TV and never understood why my partner would watch late news
before bed.  How can one peacefully sleep with those horrors ricochetting in one's
brain, being played over and over in the mind's eye?

I saw nothing positive or healthful in this.
