OpinionThe media hype about elections was preferable to the nonsense that usually fills the airtime.

Media abhors vacuum. At least the election hype was about something concrete and real.

I generally avoid the news anyway - it's just more of the same each day. I only bother with it when there's something really interesting that's happened, perhaps a natural disaster, but even then you can get more information from the Internet anyway. Even TV news gets on YouTube, so you get greater coverage than from your own country alone (on TV).
