" much of what you get online isn’t quite news, and more like a never-ending stream of commentary, one that does more to distort your understanding of the world than illuminate it."
And not particularly good commentary either.
I started listening to my country's state funded radio for news and entertainment recently. Was surprised by the quality of both the content and commentary. Instead of wading through hundreds of comments, I really only needed three guests who are willing to converse politely, in depth, and with integrity.
