1.) How up on current events are you?
Pretty much I like to watch both A Current Affair & Today Tonight both of which ate current affairs shows.
2.) Do you watch, listen to, or read the news? Where do you get it from?
I like to watch the news each night, I rarely read the paper
3.) Do you use social networking to find out about world events?
No not really I notice things on it but it is not a go to place for such news for me
4.) What is one news-like event that has happened in your city recently?
A fire, there was a house fire recently
5.) Would you like to be more or less aware of things happening in the world?
Neither I am happy with how much news I hear/see as it is...............sometimes I think we get news overload.
To end this I will add that I remember when I was in high school thinking the news was full of violence and since then it has become more violent, because there is more violence in the world.
One thing that does annoy me about our current affair shows is that they have a habit of repeating themselves every few months, they also like to bag the big supermarkets the ones that offer fuel discount vouchers if you spend over $30. They say we are paying for the discount voucher via higher prices in the supermarket, but let's be honest here if they did away with the fuel discount vouchers the shelve prices of goods will not come down. So the way I see it is that I have to do grocery shopping so if I can get a fuel discount voucher when I do so I will, any saving is a saving.
Does anyone else find that the current affair show they watch is often repeating themselves of bagging on someone, it is like there is not enough new things happening that they have to do the same old thing over and over again.
