Fearing the News

Since mid-March I started having to work from home. It was a relief not to be in the office and potentially get it. It was an even greater thing to not have to commute.

Before the shelter-in-place happened, I remember seeing news headlines being overtaken by the Corona Virus. From maybe 10% of the subject matter in most news media to about 99%. In the beginning of the shelter-in-place I tried to keep up with the news. I noticed that some news stations like MSNBC would focus on how horrible the virus is, all the people dying, the chaos in hospitals and how easy it is to get it. After a while, I just stopped watching the news, most especially MSNBC or abc. It’s almost as if scaring the hell out of people is their main objective.
