To be cured of newspapers, uh yeah, just open one.
But all the talk these days of “Fake News” being such a big issue, I mean, go fly a kite.
William Randolph Hearst would put everyone today to shame, they just called in “Yellow Journalism” back then and didn’t cry about.
The press (free speech) must be free, no matter the cost. Why? Because the alternative is authoritarian.
I have to agree with Taleb here though. Forget the papers. Newspapers are garbage tomorrow and often wrong. Go get an old book.
This is easy for me because I like the big picture anyway.
This puts it best: “The famed twentieth-century British journalist Malcolm Muggeridge once said that all news is old things happening to new people.”
To be completely cured of newspapers, spend a year reading the previous week’s newspapers.
