Where do you get your "news".
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
Al Jazeera, Russia Today, both good.
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.Posted 4 years agodeludedMember
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. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
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 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…Posted 4 years ago19ninetySubscriber
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.Posted 4 years ago
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.
