No news is good news!

The more I cut back on broadcast news, the happier I become. I first started during the recent election season when the political ads were insane. Then I got fed up with the amateur hour over at WRAL and switched to listening to Jazz with Bob Parlocha on WNCU in the mornings. I took another step today by automatically muting WNCU's stream at the top of each hour when they play NPR news.

I get my news reading the paper and the web where I get to choose what I read. According to a recent Pew Research Report this puts me in with the young hip consumers of news.

I recommend taking a break from the talking heads, you'll be happier for it.

If you're interested, here is the code I use to mute the news.
