The news, media and online information have become controversial due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fake news, disinformation have become there own news stories. I like to stay abreast of the latest news, I do get weary of reading about COVID-19 and vaccines and mandates and protesters. Sometimes I long for the good news story that New Zealand is famous for "Ducklings stop traffic to cross road" or "Cat burglar steals neighbours socks". Even reading about the Winter Olympics has been a good, news about ice skating and snowboarding feats as well as sports that you only read about when the Winter Olympics is on like curling, luge and biathlon.
