Do you prefer to get your news from local or national outlets?

When you were a kid, reading the news was something you watched your parents do, their brows furrowing over steaming cups of coffee, the occasional foreign swear word rolling forth from their lips. Now you do it, with far less aplomb, screaming at the news throwing updates at you from all sides. Some people chose to scream at their local news, which they find more trustworthy than bigger conglomerates. Others opt for more established companies for, well, the establishment. And you?

The local news doesn’t have the glitz and glamour—dare we say, the pretension—that most national news organizations do. To them, the news is exactly what it was meant to be—a cut and dry discussion based on facts and nothing else, no spin attached.

There’s also something just so much more wholesome about the local news than there is about a more established network. You consistently see faces that slowly become friendly on TV, maybe even interact with them at some point. They’re more than just unreachable personalities; they’re part of the community.

There’s nothing wrong with consuming your local news. However, it’s very important to maintain a certain amount of knowledge about the things that are going on outside of your community as well. Knowledge is power, after all, and if you only read up on one area, you remain ignorant of others that could end up affecting it.

Additionally, while local newscasters are extremely good at what they do, national newscasters have other skills and resources that benefit their own audiences. So stay informed, baby; just maybe lay off Twitter.
