Reading the news often makes me frustrated and angry, and I really can't do anything about what the news is reporting on. Considering giving it up entirely and purposefully avoiding the news.
I can relate to that. In addition to being nearly exclusively negative, most news is garbage-quality and only cares about emotionalising and getting clicks. Here in Germany even the big newspapers with loads of history, prestige and influence have degenerated to a quality level which 20 years ago would have been associated with the tabloid press. Maybe I can muster the courage to purposefully avoid all news in the future...
Same here in Belgium, but I think that is the case in all European countries. More or less...
There is an interesting project ( which tries to uphold some of the old ideals of journalism. Sadly it's very US centric. It would be nice if there was an european alternative to that.

Love Axios' podcasts - used to listen to Pro Rata podcast daily. Now listening to Re:Cap
I somehow can't grab idea of axios. I know 'it's a thing', but can't understand it phenomena of it. It's newsletter service setup by some professional journalist which filters away noise from daily news and provides concrete rundown in given section? EU has always smaller market for those, people not willing to spend money online as in US. I see it as totally doable with good scraping, filtration and team of professional copywriters, but would it earn?
