after having no newspaper, I got a problem: I don’t have paper to make fire any more. Thats the main issue for me not to have one. ;)
I read Tim Ferris 4 hw and after that I didn’t look news any more actively.
There remains much enough news, no, too much news though.
My social contacts are very important for me and so I often hear things I didn’t know (news) and I m happy not to have seen it on tv. So much punch stories!

The decision not to watch any more is yours, but give it a try. But you also don’t have to watch yt.

Talk to people from real life and you will hear real life stories.
If you look news aditional, you will see, that they are lies often.

You should absolutely not watch the news , if some issue that requires you to have a well rounded opinion comes up you will actually benefit from not having been exposed to propoganda related to it beforehand.


If WW3 starts or the next great depression , you'll hear about it no worries.

I think
I'm really fascinated that everyone here doesn't watch / listen to news.
I quit in 2004 and never looked back.

This is certainly an interesting thread. What does this say about us?
What would a sociologist say about us?
I read some news, mostly about sports and usually for less than 10 minutes a day. I get some on my insta and twitter feeds (though right now I’m on a social media detox) and I think it’s better that way. I get most of my news these days by listening to other people complain.

It looks like it is an overwhelming "Do Not Watch The News" here.

I had no idea that something like watching the news could actually affect my thought process...ie, finding myself thinking very negatively.

I was never into watching the news but got hooked on it over the past few years when I noticed, (what I consider to be), blatant, pure evil actions coming from the left leaders all over the world.

Being a Britt, now living in Spain I see, (via certain Youtube videos - created by real people), that there is a massive Globalist agenda push forward with plans that would've been considered conspiracy theories back in the 90's and early 2000's.

I guess it shocked me and then angered me and kind of "red pilled" me.

Here is the thing....no one else around me seemed to give two s**ts about what was/is going on. People either don't know or just follow the rest of the sheep who believe the fake crap.

Now, after reading these responses on here, I wonder what was the point of me knowing all the evil that is going on with those in charge and the Elite...including all those moronic celebrities/athletes/personalities...etc.

Yes, I am not one of the sheeple BUT what the Hell can little old me do about it?!!
Nothing!!

As of yesterday I cut off all Youtube "news" channels, (mostly independent creators but still...news is news). I will not discuss news with anyone. What focus I have now needs to point towards filling my mind with more productive, positive, actionable content.

I am curious to see if after a few weeks this will change how I feel and think.

If you are going to be on YouTube, I suggest you watch Jim Rohn videos.
A lot of actionable advice. He has a unique way of seeing things.
I really appreciate these videos.
I will watch these over the next few days.

But you also don’t have to watch yt.
Yeh, I only watch YT because there are some really interesting channels on there that I watch depending on my mood. Some are educational like history, science, health, fitness, practical designing and building stuff.

I have specific channels for entertainment, movie reviews, dumb challenge videos and anything to get me laughing I guess.

I am still on the hunt for more self-improvement, entrepreneurial videos. I forget who on here suggested I watch "Universal Man" videos...I appreciate that...interesting stuff.

Any more suggestions would be great.
I literally cut news cold turkey!

Dear Empire

Here is something for you. (Approx 2 min) :)

Dan
Haha...Yeh I remember that show.
I believe "Page 3" no longer exists in The Sun newspaper anymore.

Funny how the corruption has been going on since then and even further back....only difference now is that it cannot be hidden due to the emergence of the Internet. Of course, the big tech companies are now trying to control that info...but I wont get into that anymore.

Jim Rohn said that your mind is like a mental factory, and if you continually dump garbage into it, you cannot lead a successful, rich dynamic life. It can't be done.

Stand guard at the gates of your mind. I cannot state how important that was to me.

Also @Empire, I would make a rough guess that the mindset of most people on the forum here is "I can't control world events, my life is limited, so I am going to only focus on the things I can change, and that I have control over."

I dont watch news at all anymore already since atleast 7-8 years. I gotta say, sometimes I feel stupid for not knowing what people are talking about, however, at the same time I think its a big advantage to not be sucked into all the noise
