News Cleanse Day 2. The News Cycle Is Not Your Friend. What IS a ‘News Cleanse’. Why do a ‘News Cleanse’. No news reading or watching. No political discussions. No peeking. Continue podcasting through the cleanse. Great emails and comments already from listeners to The Bob Davis Podcasts. Does this mean no politics or social commentary during the cleanse? Does this mean Bob Davis is losing interest in what is happening politically and socially in the world and in the United States? The answer is emphatically no. Political and social commentary through the week is a go! But, does the news cycle serve anyone? The big outlets, CNN, and Fox and of course all the networks, and web sites like Drudge, Huffington, Buzz Feed, Infowars, The Blaze, the heritage mainstream media like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and the political websites like Politico, World Net Daily, Newsmax, and many more are designed to elicit an emotional response, and drive people into camps. It’s not news anymore. It’s sports. And what are people talking about out there around their bonfires in places like Maple Grove, Des Moines, and the suburbs of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Philadelphia, Chicago and Detroit? Not the daily news cycle and the screaming, yelling, pounding, pontificating, punditating and general gas bagging. One man’s journey through news addiction treatment. Sponsored by Baklund R&D.
