The media are not perfect. Even if they were, you could not take in every detail of every important event. So you need a way to grasp the big sweep of events and to see how world news directly affects you.
And there is a totally trustworthy source of information about world conditions! That source is the eternal God and his revealed World we call the Bible.
"My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways," says God. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts" (Isa. 55:8-9, New King James throughout).
The Creator God whatches, from a perfect perspective above, all the events that occur on earth. "The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good," Proverbs 15:3 tells us.
Jesus revealed God is aware of every sparrow that falls to the ground - that the very hairs of every one of our heads are numbered (Matt. 10:29-30)! God knows what is going on in the world. He sees all. God even has the ability to see the future - because he can bring to pass whatever he wills.
Isaiah 46:9-10 says: "I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, 'My counsel shall stand....' "
God reveals his perspective in the Bible. There we can find information on what to watch for because the Bible records God's revealed prophecies.
