I think it caters to a sense of despair and an impatience to see the bullies put to justice, but any comfort derived from it is so fleeting we’d all be better off jacking

I find myself reading the not-news sections more and more. you know, with cute animal pics...

and things like a 84 year old in Australia finally retired from donating blood after donating for 60 something years and bla....well here you go:
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/14/w...ood-donor.html

Along the way, medical professionals made a stunning discovery: Mr. Harrison’s blood contained a rare antibody necessary to make a pioneering medication that officials at the Australian Red Cross Blood Service said had helped save more than two million babies from a potentially fatal disease.

They said more than three million doses of Anti-D, as the medication containing Mr. Harrison’s blood is called, have been issued to mothers since 1967.
for whatever reason reading something like that makes me... happy? that people like that exist, in the flood of shit-news, I want to read something like that.

But I started to miss culture and arts articles.

"what happens next" is just a fucking waste of time, isn't it. As if what already happened isn't enouh, yes please, I also want to think about what comes next and then find out the next day or week what did happen. I don't have the energy for that, I wonder who has, really.
I am the same. I look for articles that give lots of verified facts with minimal narrative frame. I basically got my education in critical analysis as did most of you guys I guess (this is what most liberal arts degrees really are, right?) so I feel for the most part I don't need worthless pundits suggesting different interpretations of facts to me. I can draw my own conclusions and interpret relationships between abstract information without tons of loaded words and emotionally charged phraseology.

As for what happens next– I've given up on that kind of analysis too, but I also understand the obsession. I almost majored in polisci, and I eventually came to understand it is an entire discipline which goes to extreme lengths to try and come up with predictive/prescriptive models based on what has happened in the past, and the big takeaway is that it absolutely never works

I've been an Alex Jones show since I was a teenager... So about 13 years now. I remember back in the day he'd be in a shitty studio and the only celebrity to appear on his show would be Joe Rogan.

I respect the work he does, and you can tell the major media are shaking in their boots by the amount of time they try to slander him.
