Watch A Lot Less NEWS

***

I get asked a lot … What “NEWS” do I watch and recommend?

First:  I am here to SUPPORT “Like Minds”… Not to CHANGE anyones’ minds. I do not debate with Lib/Dems who admit “hating people like me”.

If you do … It’s Your Life .. Your Blood Pressure … Your Digestive System.  Do you also drink milk two weeks after it’s expiration date and buy your shoes two sizes too small.  I don’t.

To the Watch Less News Question.

I have an advantage you don’t have.  I have Blondie “in the next room”.  As a professional News Analyst, Blondie is among the very best in America. She provides her AAA client list with all the “news” they need for the day.

Blondie also has an advantage of moi “in the next room” !! We’ve been doing “what we do” for quite a while.

She watches Fox Business in the AM – Lou Dobbs – Stuart Varney -Maria Bartiromo.  She considers Maria Bartiromo The Best News Reporter “in the business”.  That is THE ONLY TV News she bothers with.  Does she listen to Rush?  Sure.  Don’t you?

Throughout the day she scans a lengthy list of news digest websites for Headlines.   She does not bother with “Cable News Opinions”.   Among Columnists…. her #1 – by far – is Victor Davis Hanson.

IMO … 95% of you Watch Waaaay Too Much “News”.  Unless there is a Hurricane headed your way … WHY is 24/7 News necessary in your life?  Really?

My Life is Our Family … My Website … Audiobooks … Fishing.  I try to keep an equilibrium with Our Family at a steady 51%.  I function in society without ANY Cable News … or a local newspaper … or a local TV affiliate. Sound impossible.?  I’ve been doing it for years.  You could too.

Cut off cable years ago, local paper is fish wrap, but since I live in Wilmington that is an appropriate use. Actually turn down free papers at the grocery store ( you know they are desperate when they hand them out for free hoping you will subscribe). I don’t watch the news unless we have an approaching storm, I have a digital antenna for local stations. My wife will watch national news occasionally and then I spend the evening talking her down from the ledge. I don’t know where this will end, (actually I do I read the end of… Read more »

Oh, you are so correct. It might make for an interesting story to know you read my mind today, which is not unusual for you even though we live 2300+ miles apart. I was out with the proverbial shovel in hand for the second time this morning thinking “if I have to listen to the news for one more minute it could be a disaster here!” I come in to find this fine piece of commentating on my phone. It is a shame that 95% of the population do not take your advise. Interestingly without a word being said, the… Read more »
