This is the response you will receive from me if you ask "Did you hear the news?"
Well as I do not watch, read or notice the news, I haven't been thinking about any topic in the news.
We have to take certain media outlets into consideration before we can believe everything we hear. Many media channels differ from each other from television, newspapers, magazines, websites, social networks and so on. Some media conduits are used soley for entertainment and should not be taken seriously; where as other are used to inform the targeted audiences on occurring events. We always have the right to discard what we hear or read and what is considered "news worthy" information.
