Mine doesn't pay attention to the news, so no. I personally stopped this week because I am tired about hearing of death death death and the other negative crap that the media puts an emphasis on. But news is news, and the fact is it's sometime crummy, and there's nothing we can do about it. He could try searching for his own news that is positive, like local kids rescuing baby birds or something like that, lol! That would cheer ANYONE up!
Mine doesn't watch the news - he is either glued to the Discovery or History channels. Hasn't watched a local news program in 20 years, hasn't watched CNN in at least five and I don't think that I have ever seen him pick up the newspaper.
