    Don't really read the news anymore. It's all pointless negative ****e. Occasionally look at the BBC website, and research anything current I hear about. Follow a multitude of news organisations on Facebook.

      I have the BBC app which gives me basic overviews of main stories in the morning. I usually google stories I'm more interested in because the articles on the app are really short.

      Posted from TSR Mobile
      The Guardian (and its sub-pages I'm interested in), Al Jazeera, the BBC, and then things like Amnesty International, Red Cross, Unicef etc.; and science and popular culture sites.

      EDIT: The charities tend to talk about the stuff that the mainstream news often doesn't cover.

      I never seek to learn the news. Anything that I happen to find out is by accident (e.g. accidentally flicking on a news channel, accidentally overhearing people talking about the news, etc). I have zero interest in news. It's all manufactured fiction.
