I completely agree. I haven’t owned a television for over three decades and when living in the USA I avoided all US media like plague bacilli because everything therein is empty sensationalism. That said, it is important to maintain an understanding of today’s world, for which I can recommend The Economist, France 24, l’Obs, and (for the sake of a very different view of the world) Киевская почта. These various options provide context and analysis rather than mere empty sensation and scandal du jour.

Anyone who enjoys my articles here on Medium may be interested in my books Why Democracy Failed and The Praying Ape, both available from Amazon.
