Too Much News

Watch the video … but spoiler alert: yes, you are consuming too much news.

Key takeaways:

  • Watching the news does not equate to participating in our world/life/community
  • We need more people participating in politics
  • There is an immense amount of peer pressure to appear “up on things”
  • If you don’t know who you’re going to vote for … watch the debates; otherwise it’s just crappy entertainment, not news
  • Information is abundant, truth is more rare
