The government developed a way in which it can communicate with its locals. It became possible to do this through different frequencies, giving rich people an opportunity to make money while helping their government. They could pass whatever information they wanted within their borders or even beyond. New channels have been introduced to give information from all parts of the world without going into detail. If you would like to know what is going on in your locality, you will just have to view the local news.
It is boring mostly because there is nothing new under the sun. Everything that they show has been shown already, making it repetitive and not new anymore. Most of the time, the anchors will repeat the same news all through from the beginning of the month to the end of the month as nothing notable has happened in between. If you have managed to watch news during the first week, you will be bored to see similar news during the third week of the same month. This is not their fault since being a local channel, it is restricted to its boundaries, which is small, limiting their stories to those happening near them. Local news can be irrelevant.
Being limited to one area, the news team might be forced to look for stories that may not be relevant to keep their viewers glued to their screens. Take an example of a slow month, with nothing new happening, that news team might come up with new ways of entertaining their viewers, like looking into archives to air historical news which might make people informed of their past. Viewers who do not enjoy historical facts will get very bored at the content being aired. Historical facts can be exciting to watch but only if it is relevant to what is happening currently in the same locality.
Unfortunately, television stations aim at making news depressing in every possible way. It is no longer how good a situation is, but how terrible a situation is getting. They keep on airing how someone’s house got burned down, accidents accelerating, global warming along with negativity. It has even come to the point where it seems like local channels are competing on who will come up with the worst news, to obtain the highest number of viewers. In addition to that, they still concentrate on bad politics, repeating whatever negative things our leaders have achieved instead of focusing on positive developments seen during the same leadership.
Due to the strong influence of political parties on news desks, the latter tends to air what they are forced to air. Sensitive content will be edited to protect powerful people who have control over things that are unseen. While you might think that you are told all that is happening, be sure that some contents are hidden. You will be made to think that everything is okay, but in real sense, the locality is in shambles.
Hiding these interesting facts will limit them to news that is uninteresting and boring to watch. It can also be annoying to watch people lying to you and you can do nothing about it. Information given on news is either sugar-coated or incomplete, leaving you with numerous questions, and sometimes leaving you angry. Suppose that is their aim because they cannot achieve their goals without affecting viewers either positively or negatively. Affecting them negatively is always easier, therefore, we will be shown news that is all lies, leaving us with no choice but getting angry.
When people are annoyed, they will show something more repeatedly than a happy person. Local news can be boring if you move from a busy city to the countryside. In your big city, so many interesting things take place, starting with fun festivals, to new ways of theft. A countryside town has crimes that are more old school because these are occurrences which are not common, so it will break the news if a local’s house is broken into. Moving from a busy city like New York, local news will be boring since you will have to cope with less advanced ways of doing things. You should try to watch national or international news, and if it is impossible to access those, wait till the weather coverage which might be a little more interesting.
