For last week’s poll we asked you to share how you felt about the following statement:
You can never have too much news.
perceptive_vegetable said: "I agree because even if there was news in India, England, Romania, Italy, Spain all at the same time no one can stop that so I agree."
generous_lime said: "I'm in the middle because whenever you want to know about something, you will never get to know each and everything about it, some things about it will be left untold but you can say that you have enough news when it is enough for you to judge the situation judiciously."
generous_physics said "I disagree because then you will have way too much news."
The results are in and here's what you thought:
There are so many different places that we can find out about the news – for example, social media, websites, television channels and newspapers. In fact, the news is in so many places that sometimes we can’t choose when we hear about it and when we don't.
Because of covid-19, the amount people looking for news has increased. Many people have also developed a habit of “doomscrolling” – spending a lot of time scrolling through bad or sad news.
This got us thinking about whether or not it’s possible to have too much news. What do you think?
