How many news apps do you have on your phone and how much time do you spend browsing the news every day? Does the news really make us more knowledgeable? In today's episode, the author has a completely different advice - stop reading the news. In his opinion:

  1. the news does not make us smarter and more knowledgeable, but rather more biased.
  2. the quality of news keeps decreasing, but the speed of news keeps getting faster and news becomes more addictive.

How do you feel about the news? Feel free to share with us in the comments.

The problem is news doesn’t make us informed. In fact, the more news we consume the more misinformed we become.

News is, by definition, something that doesn’t last.

First, the speed of news delivery has increased.

Second, the cost to produce news has dropped significantly.

Third, like other purveyors of drugs, producers of news want you to consume more of it.

Fourth, the incentives are misaligned.

Like a drug, the news is addictive.

Your attention is valuable.
