"These days, I like to think of consuming the news like consuming food. Just as we ought to be mindful about what, how much, and at what times of day we eat food, we can be mindful about which news sources we turn to, and when and how often we turn to them. We can establish a media diet based on clear intentions—for instance, to stay up to date . . . to inform ourselves — instead of overeating or getting stuck in a “filter bubble,” or at the whims of pre-determined algorithms. We must also aim to seek out news sources that are wholesome in content, committed to ethical journalistic standards and fact-checking." - Jihii Jolly
