'Doomscrolling' is where you compulsively seek out bad news on the web—'doomscrolling' can effect both physical and mental health.


Caitlin Cassidy writing in the Guardian, makes the following points:
  • The 24-hour-news cycle can bring about a constant state of high alert for some people.
  • A vicious cycle can develop where people are attracted to bad news.
  • The more they check the news, the more it affects their lives.
  • Some develop a compulsive media obsession and can't detach themselves from bad news.
