    Does anyone watch their local news anymore. I am tired of all the negativeness that is on.Seems that 15 min is of who killed who in Louisville.
    Whatever happened to positive news that reassures the public? Need more like Andy Rooney on 60 Minutes.He is one guy who I can watch all the time.

    I just really don't care much about watching local news anymore either, I know just what you mean. Hardly ever has anything positive in it, though there are good things as well as bad going on out there. I guess that's what the public wants though or they would change how they present it :/

    For a long time we had direct tv and couldn't get local stuff and believe me I did NOT miss it.

    when good things are the news its like saying that bad things are the norm.Thats the way I look at it.

    The local news back home is joke!! All they do is try to find local situations that "identify" with whatever crap the cable channels are carrying to make themselves look special. I hate to say it, but I get all of my news coverage off of the CNN WORLD news website. It seems that only the World news covers real issues rather than hollywood

    Fox News, Drudge Report and CNN, thats where I get mine.

    When I read our local paper, Boy O Boy, it is sick. people getting shot, stabbed , just out getting a beer at night. The taverns must have a different crowd in them since I quit going.

    Then the drugs, burgularys and horse and cat shootings. I think I'll just hide on my sand hill.

    Only reason I listen to the news is to get the weather report. Then most of the time they even have that screwed up.

    Only tv news I watch is Foxnews and not much of it lately. I usually read Drudge daily. I'm subscribed to the online edition of the local paper, I can scan over it pretty quick.
