I won’t lie, I have actually given up on watching the news. First of all most of what they report isn’t true, second of all they end up giving all the attention to the things that are more sensational than important. Sure it’s been that way for a while, but I think it’s more obvious during an election season. It was bad during the Canadian Election, it’s about 100x worse during the American one.
So to try and get any source of information that isn’t biased one way or another right now, is very difficult. Even trying to sort through the mess online, which was already a shit show, is near impossible. I guess it sort of comes down to deciding to no longer care.
I mean at the end of the day I don’t live in that country. We have our own problems up here, and they may not be nearly as odd as the ones that our neighbours to the south are struggling with, I don’t need to pay that much attention. When the election is done, and there are some policies being talked about then I’ll pay attention again. Hopefully it will be to someone that makes sense and isn’t a talking orange, but that really isn’t up to me.
