Print news providers on the Internet often group news items and opinion pieces together, with little or no guidance in headlines as to which is which. I find that a good RSS feed reader helps me separate news sources that focus on what’s actually going on in the world (good to read) from sources that tend to editorialize and inflame (not as good).

Also, reading the news, where I control the content and its presentation, is for me much less stressful than watching it.
