OBSERVATION

Because of limited grammatical structures, you sometimes have to choose between grammatical clarity and technical exactness. For example, if I say “When the Sun goes nova, the first thing we will hear from administrators is that they are in ‘uncharted territory’.”, it is clear what I mean, but not technically exact, because ‘we’ will not be around at that time, having long since taken up the occupation of pushing up daisies. However, if I say “When the Sun goes nova, the first thing people will hear from administrators is that they are in ‘uncharted territory’.”, I cannot be criticized on technical grounds, but the grammar is weak, because it is ambiguous to whom ‘they’ refers to.
C’est la vie.

Anyone with a news-watching mentality can never be deeply creative. Such a person can at most create derivative works, e.g., riffing off one’s biography.
A habitual news-watcher is a special case of a spectator.
cf:
“It is given only to those in the spirit world to be spectators.”
