Should fox news be shut down?

Do News companies have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?

With this 24 hour news cycle we apparently have to listen to the same old news story for hours on end as if it were the only news and as if no one has yet seen the news, repeating over and over again the same news.

I question this from a psychological viewpoint since once the news story has been reported at what point does a news story become obsessive and invasive, right now Fox news has been playing the 911 calls that were made at the height of the emergency. If you watch the news more than 4 hours in one day what are the chances that you might have to go to a psychiatrist, and get a prescription for depression.

Sounds insane right but what if there were some facts to back this up?

When does this become a sickness?

Do people really want to hear the dramatic and obvious suffering of other humans?

Is this what our news companies have been reduced to reporting?

In some cases you may begin to wonder when news coverage should end and compassion, respect for the dead and suffering families, should begin, when you begin to question the morals of a reporter’s compassion or lack thereof I expect it is high time for the news to change its tune.

If you are unaware of the tragedy that took place over 24 hours ago, you obviously are not in touch with the world around you nor are you concerned at all, so why keep on with the 24 hour news cycle in these cases?

A while ago a few people began to question the necessity of what we call news these days, in fact 20 years ago much of what is reported on the news would never have been aired. Yet, we continue to see this trash journalism, make the 24 hour news cycle over and over again.
