Knowledge is its own reward. Most people listen to the news not for knowledge but for entertainment and the mere ability to discuss the happenings of the world in small talk with other people. Or perhaps it is simply curiosity. While none or all of these points may be true for everyone, some have an inquisitive nature and a desire for continuous learning. By accessing news on the internet, the ability to modify what we watch, listen to or read keeps us from too much on the bad and searching for the good in every day. So choose your news well.
