Personally, I have stopped watching the news on the BBC as it is all about the UK and the USA. We know everything that is happening over the pond, most of the time things that don't even concern us, but very little about the rest of the world, unless it is very, very important so they can't ignore it. I tend to watch ITV news now, that is the few times that I watch them as it can be so depressing. I don't buy newspapers either as the British press is absolute crap in my opinion as it is controlled and manipulated by the likes of Murdock and Co. I do watch the local news on ITV as I can associate with that though.
