Staying Informed, Without Going Mad

Those of us with the ability to vote and influence representatives have a duty to be well informed. I have a weakness for the news, especially in chaotic times. I think the news media consumption habits that many of us have are flawed. Click bait headlines and short soundbites rise to the top of our feeds, but these not substantive.
