News Junkies

Some people I know are self-proclaimed "news junkies".

While it is important to know what is going on in the world, when we watch the news we are only passive observers.

What do we gain by over-exposing ourselves to newspapers, magazines, and television?

Why do we need to know every single little detail of everything?

If we become more agitated and fearful of the world we live in by watching the news what have we accomplished?

I have a cousin who lives in the DC area. He works for the government. He is so afraid of everything. His son goes to a Jewish day school. He is afraid to have him there. He is afraid of terrorists and anti-semites and bombs and everything. I told him that I'm more afraid of slipping on the ice when winter comes.
