SENTINEL WATCH

DON'T GET STUCK IN BREAKING NEWS

From the May 17, 2010 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED a television news story and noticed how it airs over and over? Such "breaking news" is repeated so often and so dramatically that viewers sometimes get fixated on the television, waiting for more information. I have to ask, Isn't there something else going on? Isn't there more to this story than repeating and repeating news of disaster? Of course.
