Not just sensationalized, _hyper_ sensationalized. It's not "Saskatchewan community grieving from attacks" it's "Saskatchewan community reels following brutal stabbings". It's not "Democrats criticize Republicans for X,Y, and Z" it's "Democrats blast Republicans". When everything is extreme and sensational, nothing is. The truly important news gets buried under the mundane, useless drivel hyped up to be the latest breaking developments. It's exhausting. - -News media is designed to capture your attention and to play on negativity bias.

Log into Reddit, it's there. Log onto Fedi, it's there. Walk down the street in town, it's there.
