What I Learned By Giving Up the News for 30 Days

What I Learned By
Giving Up the News for 30 Days
by Chip Brogden
For the past month I have observed a self-imposed “news blackout.”

I stopped watching the local and evening news.

I unsubscribed from breaking news emails and text alerts.

I turned off the news apps on my phone.

I stopped checking Google News or Facebook in the spare minutes in between whatever I’m doing online.

You may wonder “why” I have disconnected from the news media.

I could be really spiritual and just say that’s how God led me.

Sure, I believe He did lead me to do that.

But it was kind of a mutual agreement – as much my decision as His leading.

As for reasons “why” beyond that, I could point to some lessons learned, and some of the benefits I have gained, by NOT watching, reading, and listening to a steady stream of negative events as they happen...


I am your brother,
