Get me the news I need, not the news I want

posted by Andora 14 days ago  

I'm tired of the hate mongering, cognitive bias rich, mindless advertisement fuelled News media be it on Internet or Television or Radio or even traditional Paper medium.


When I say Internet, I don't mean just the websites, but also mobile Apps with infinite scroll which has put pressure on the News Agencies to produce content at a blistering rate, resulting in low quality content without any editorial oversight or fact checking or even proofreading.

I'm tired of these News medium exploiting my FOMO, I'm convinced that 99.9% of the news I consume every day has just information I don't need, Information I will never use in my life, at least in the foreseeable future. This is after choosing the categories of interest, giving personal information about myself than I should have to the large media companies and thereby advertisers.

I'm convinced that these News media are trying make me someone they want to be, rather than give me what I need.

What does it take to get only the News I need, which will be actually useful for my life?
