Front Page Blues
It's tempting to blame the media for this, but the media is a reflection of our collective psyche magnified by modern technology. We need to value novelty less and learn how to delay gratification. Take a lesson from wine tasting and meditation. Accept that news happens and let it breathe undisturbed for a period of time. After all, hindsight is 20/20.

Media in the age of algorithms
The essence of algorithm design is not to eliminate all error, but to make results robust in the face of error. Where de Havillands tried in vain to engineer a plane where the materials were strong enough to resist all cracks and fatigue, Boeing realized that the right approach was to engineer a design that allowed cracks, but kept them from propagating so far that they led to catastrophic failure. That is also Facebook’s challenge.
