How on earth did that become a thing here? OK, in airports around the world you’ll see news stations always on - but most people don’t do that in their homes, do they? Yet it seems like lots of Taiwanese homes just have a TV news channel on all day, the background hum of the day. Don’t get me wrong - I like having a background hum - but usually I prefer music, or talk radio of the quieter public variety.
Or maybe I’m out of touch and lots of people in North America do this too.
