I try to avoid the news as much as possible. I just find it incredibly frustrating, and there's absolutely nothing I can do about it, so there's no point upsetting myself over it. The world's going to hell in a handbasket, what else is new?
On another note, unfortunately all kinds of BS will however eventually reach you even if you don't watch the news. People just love spreading lies and believing it without substantial proofs, they just pick what they want to be true and not what it actually is from an objective standpoint.
