Most respondents in the latest unscientific poll at SharylAttkisson.com say they find coronavirus news to be "needlessly scary."
Seventy percent (70%) of those who weighed in had that assessment.
However, 18% said coronavirus news overall is "informative."
Nearly 10% said they are not watching the news.
I find coronavirus news overall to be:
70%: Needlessly scary
2%: Mimimizing of the risks
10%: Not watching/reading

Sharyl: Are you being censored? In very post over the past few weeks, most of the stories result in a page of symbols when I click on it. You're one of the few reliable journalists left, and do an incredibly valuable public service, but very few of your stories are available to me.
