You are absolutely right! The only reason to read the news is if it entertains you, otherwise, the news should be considered the first third of the Serenity Prayer: "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference."

The average person can't change anything about the things that make the news, primarily, I think, because there are at least two sides to everything. So either you spend a lot of time trying to deeply understand why people would have completely different views, or you accept that they probably have good reasons and let them be.

Meanwhile you can enjoy your life changing the only thing you can change, which is just yourself, so that you are happier and healthier, if you aren't already. And if you aren't, I recommend movies to ameliorate this, especially funny movies because "what an amazing, magical talent it is to make the sad people who follow the news laugh!"
