I think one the huge downsides in living in north America is we are cut off from the rest of the world. The percentage of people who listen to the world news, either CNN, BBC or FOX is is alarmingly low. The reality is most folks here have little concept on what is happening in the rest of the world, and tend to incorrectly assume that the US is the center of the world which it isn't.
I'd venture to say there are a lot of Americans who watch no news at all.
I added the CNN go app to my phone last week. I found out there is an international CNN option, but it's not available on all devices, including mine.
I kind of like CNN. I watch it a lot. It can be sensationalistic, but I take in the info with a grain of salt. I really like watching Gov Cuomo of NY State. His briefings are so much better than tRump's. And I like Chris Cuomo and Anderson Cooper and Erin Burnett of CNN.
LOL...I think they are going a little overboard. There's nothing wrong with walking your dog or walking about for exercise. Just stay away from other people and don't touch anything.
