My point exactly, I like to have news on in the background during the
day. I quickly tire of News 24 and others because after an hour or two
you can literally memorise every word of every story, it's mind-numbing.
Though it's not just that, I find that there is actually quite a lot
going on in the world that you just never see covered on the British and
American run news services.
