    Sick of the Guardian being a parallel Daily Fail Online. Deleted & unsubscribed.

    I just want to know what is happening without opinion.

    I was kidding, sorry 😉

    Al Jazeera, Russia Today, both good.

    Twitter is on it’s last leg for me also, wondered if there were any redeeming reasons to keep it .

    Al Jazeera & Russia Today certainly have an…. Eastern perspective.

    Ignorance is bliss anyway.

    BBC news website – almost never watch a TV news programme.

    Local news from local paper when visiting my parents.

    Radio news if it’s on when I’m in the car.

    I can go for weeks without hearing/seeing the news!

    STW is good for controversial stuff!

    News is bad for your health. It leads to fear and aggression, and hinders your creativity and ability to think deeply. The solution? Stop consuming it altogether

    Russia Today might be good in terms of providing an alternative viewpoint to the western media, but it’s hardly a bastion of independence and quality journalism.

    Since the start of the year I’ve deleted news apps, unsubscribed from an online newspaper and no longer watch the news on TV. I’m sick of ingesting fear, hatred and violence 24/7. Feeling much better for it – less anger, frustration and negativity.

    I take sabbaticals from this place if the ass-hatery quotient gets too much. 🙂

    I’ve got some software that takes away all the extreme views from the Singletrackworld forum on one side and the Pistonheads forum on the other, leaving me with all the moderate stuff in the middle.

    Consequently, I have no idea what is going on in the world.

    Absolutely deluded. I started to loathe that, looking to fill time, I just opened the Guardian all and absorbed the bile.

    I never watch tv news or buy a newspaper . The penny also dropped this week on the fact Radio 4, Today especially, consider Scotland an extra-terrestrial plain.

    I don’t NEED to know anything.

    Now again I look at the Photos in the last 24 hours on the Guardian.

    I don’t read the drivel any more.

    Other than that, the Archers gives me all the news I need.

    I use Phonly and the like and subscribe to various sources from the BBC, The Independent, Time, Al Jazerra etc and usually read a couple of takes of the same story.

    If something is of particular interest I tend to have a read around the background to events also…

    I read the Guardian online, Sunday Time paper, BBC News online and most importantly the Daily Mash.

    To be honest I’m sick of hearing about the same negative crap; football, rape, murder, kiddie fiddlers, floods, politics, corruption, middle eatern BS issues or any numbers of combinations of the baove, etc and etc.
    I flick through the BBC news app sometimes if I’m bored and read the science and tech feeds. Rarely the google Currents app. Never used Twitter before.
