Involvement with political, social and cultural events of the day is thought by most to be the hallmark of an educated and enlightened society. An informed electorate is critical to the larger need for civic engagement in a democratic process. But what’s the impact of a 24-hour news cycle and why does it often feel like the news is not news at all? We’ll examine and discuss current events from the standpoint of psychological impact. What does the way in which we engage (or choose not to) or debate say about us as a culture and a democracy?
