For Two Months, I Got My News From Print Newspapers. Here’s What I Learned. - The New York Times

There was a lot I was glad to miss. For instance, I didn’t see the false claims — possibly amplified by propaganda bots — that the killer was a leftist, an anarchist, a member of ISIS and perhaps just one of multiple shooters.

I recommend NOT getting your "news" from Facebook, Twitter, talk radio, cable news networks, etc. As the author states, too often what you're consuming isn't the news but someone's interpretation of the news. I've long tried to read the (electronic version of) my local newspaper and a few others daily. Not only do I get to form my own opinion but it presents a vast expanse of news vs. what Facebook thinks I want to read aka the echo chamber.

I first got news of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., via an alert on my watch. Even though I had turned off news notifications months ago, the biggest news still somehow finds a way to slip through. But for much of the next 24 hours after that alert, I heard almost nothing about the shooting. via Pocket

I have spent most days since then getting the news mainly from print, though my self-imposed asceticism allowed for podcasts, email newsletters and long-form nonfiction (books and magazine articles). Basically, I was trying to slow-jam the news — I still wanted to be informed, but was looking to formats that prized depth and accuracy over speed.

It has been life changing. Turning off the buzzing breaking-news machine I carry in my pocket was like unshackling myself from a monster who had me on speed dial, always ready to break into my day with half-baked bulletins.

Favorite tweet:

Reading bullshit on social media is work! Social-media companies shifted the labor of news judgment from paid professionals (newspaper editors!) onto unpaid consumers. Your newspaper subscription pays for the labor of keeping Alex Jones out of your brain. https://t.co/3KQtyo9RG2

seoulrain NYT journalist Farhad Manjoo spent nearly two months relying solely on print for his news and concluded that digital has broken how we process information (Farhad Manjoo/New York Times) http://bit.ly/2p5XVWF (nytimes) March 13, 2018 at 12:05PM http://twitter.com/seoulrain/status/973394487425847302

His suggestion:
Get news. Not too quickly. Avoid social.

Turns out his whole premise was a lie. He continued to Tweet nearly every single day.

There’s nothing wrong with getting lots of shades of opinion. And reading just the paper can be a lonely experience; there were many times I felt in the dark about what the online hordes thought about the news.… Still, the prominence of commentary over news online and on cable news feels backward, and dangerously so. It is exactly our fealty to the crowd — to what other people are saying about the news, rather than the news itself — that makes us susceptible to misinformation.… The built-in incentives on Twitter and Facebook reward speed over depth, hot takes over facts and seasoned propagandists over well-meaning analyzers of news.

"Get news. Not too quickly. Avoid social."

after Michael Pollan: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."

Now I am not just less anxious and less addicted to the news, I am more widely informed (though there are some blind spots). And I’m embarrassed about how much free time I have — in two months, I managed to read half a dozen books, took up pottery and (I think) became a more attentive husband and father.

With artificial intelligence making audio and video as easy to fake as text, we’re entering a hall-of-mirrors dystopia, what some are calling an “information apocalypse.”
