I like to watch the news in the morning while I'm having my coffee. I only have local news stations but it keeps me up to date on what's happening in the world.
I can't say I enjoy watching the news, it's almost never uplifting. But as Tinkerbell said, it is important to be informed about the goings-on in the world. I find that is its own reward.
Sometimes but I do not watch cable TV anymore. I mean very rarely, but usually now--- just on my computer.
