A surprising new study released Monday shows that increasing your intake of cable news actually won’t slow the spread of coronavirus and will actually make you feel like fucking shit.
The study surveyed regular viewers of Fox News, CNN and MSNBC during the COVID-19 crisis and asked them a series of questions about how they’ve felt through the whole ordeal. Many said their coronavirus concerns and anger only heightened, and they noted that even though they were watching more Tucker Carlson, Rachel Maddow and Don Lemon, somehow the virus continued.
“I thought if I just watched moar Hannity and Brian Williams all this would blow right over,” an anonymous participant said. “Instead I feel moar bad. Like fucking shit. And my head hurts.”
The study concludes that you should probably turn off your TV.
