A few years back I gave away my then new TV just 2 weeks after purchasing it. That device was making me ill. The media’s #1 commodity has always been fear (and it’s biologically addictive byproduct, cortisol). That’s why the daily news has a stock market section: in a long term perspective, it’s insane to follow the market on a day-to-day basis (and the number of actual day traders is tiny). The media caters unreasonable fear (it’s so addictive). They cater to the primitive short-term thinking part of our brain, that anticipates its daily doses of stress. Give away your TV, reclaim the long term.
