Why is it that there always seems to be more headlines during earnings season?

From Thursday evening through Friday morning, investors heard from Netflix (NFLX - Get Report) , IBM (IBM - Get Report) , Morgan Stanley (MS - Get Report) , Danaher (DHR - Get Report) , Honeywell (HON - Get Report) and more.

Pair that with a little trade commentary from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and oil headlines out of Iran, and you have a market saturated by news.

Not all of us have the luxury (a word for it) of staying on top of the news like a business journalist, so what's the most important thing to watch in the markets now?
