Do you think people are becoming numb to the news in this day and age?

Over the last few years, I would say at least last ten years, do you think the news run stories over and over again until people become numb to what's real and what's fake? It seems that some of the fake news stories are becoming more and more indistinguishable from the real news. It appears almost that there's no difference anymore? I would hate to say that this is true but it's becoming more harder to tell the difference. Makes me feel like I need to just read actual books instead, what do you think?

In USA YES. Since our Choice for News ranges from Wall Street based right-wing lying Machines of ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC to Ultra right-wing lying Machines of Fox to Ultra Lunatic right-wing lying Machines of TalkRadio and then you have the Wall Street based Google to semen this right-wing lying echo chamber of lies upon us. The result of which USA being involved in War after War after War, Obama being bigger War Monger than Bush and the Psychopath Trump calling Obama "Socialist Liberal", etc. Fake Fake News.

I think it's mainly because of the amount of information that we process on a daily basis. That, and the fact that the line between entertainment and reality becomes more and more invisible. Think reality tv.

Yes, I believe so. Video games, movies, and tv programing all have added to this numbing.

Yes I think. it is determinate. Many people gradually lose their confidence in rebellion. When they face something that is unfair or abnormal, they will choose to watch instead of intervening to make everything look better.
