Tom Layson, Managing Editor at KBTC public television, has posted this memo: “For about a half-dozen distinct reasons, I am taking a break from Facebook and Twitter for the summer. I’m logging out, deleting the apps from my phone, and deleting the bookmarks on my desktop. This fall, I’ll be back – but I’ll continue to evaluate how I manage my social media. Have a great summer.”
Considering the negative news online, most people would benefit by taking a vacation from the Internet. Social media is repetitive, compounding the gloom and doom in layers of argument and opinion. The same can be said for TV & radio. The truth is out there, but it is often redacted to cover up corruption and incompetence.
