I’m certainly in favor of that. I’m sick of tuning into a TV station and hearing the same topic repeated on almost every news or editorial program with very little new information added. Then social media echos it. I’m getting to the point where I will watch one or two shows a day before I walk away — if that many. If I’m not learning something new I’d rather read a book or Medium.
