There are a lot of bad things that happen in the world, and it is probably right that people should know about these things through their reporting in news bulletins. These ‘bad things’ include crime, famine, war, violence, political unrest, and injustice, to name but a few. But there is also an increasing tendency for news broadcasters to ‘emotionalize’ their news and to do so by emphasizing any potential negative outcomes of a story no matter how low the risks of those negative outcomes might be. This is basically ‘scaremongering’ at every available opportunity in order to sensationalize and emotionalize the impact of a news story. Because we now have 24-hour news coverage, gone are the days when a correspondent or journalist’s role was simply to impartially describe what was happening in the world – because of satellite TV we have an almost immediate visual record of what is happening throughout the world.
Gorging on negative news & your health.
While staying informed about current events is essential, know your news limits, and have tactics that work for you. Maybe watch negative news for 20 minutes a night, or only read the paper.
When you feel yourself getting anxious over issues you can’t control, turn off the news, go for a walk, or turn on some classical music. Divert your attention and reduce your stress.
