I think children should start watching news from a young age so that they can get in touch with the society and the real world. However, they should watch news with parental accompaniment. It is better for children to take a proactive interest in local, national and world events than to simply burying his/her head in cartoons or age-appropriate entertainment. But some more mature to picssuch as abortion or gay rights in the news should be handled appropriately by the parent in a way that makes sense to the child.
