I want to give up news

After the Scottish independence referendum on Thursday 18 September I want to take the advice from this article “News is bad for you – and giving up reading it will make you happier” by Rolf Dobelli and give up news for a year as an experiment.

According to that article:

  • News misleads.
  • News is irrelevant.
  • News has no explanatory power.
  • News is toxic to your body.
  • News increases cognitive errors.
  • News inhibits thinking.
  • News works like a drug.
  • News wastes time.
  • News makes us passive.
  • News kills creativity.

Until then I want to keep up to date with how the Yes campaigns wants to dismantle my country.
