Most of us are familiar with the phrase “quality over quantity”.
Yet it seems as though very few of us take that concept to heart when it comes to news on the big issues.
Thankfully, many friends and associates have been quick to understand the importance of accuracy and integrity regarding such issues as pandemics, climate change, energy transition, and energy security. However, there are many folks who feel that they get better value reading “free” news from our rivals because they publish so much fascinating content every day.
Well, I contend that you could read 16 Globe & Mail articles on excess deaths and causes of death during the pandemic, and not gain remotely close to as much practical knowledge as you will absorb reading two articles at BIG Media: Analysis of excess deaths in 2020 reveals surprising deviations, A look back at causes of death in the first year of COVID-19
You could read 32 New York Times articles on energy transition and energy security, and still not understand underlying dynamics as well as if you were to read two stories on the subject at BIG Media: Examining the real meaning of ‘energy transition’ in the face of undeniable historic trends, Policies that took energy security for granted have put much of the world in a tough spot
You could read 6,400 articles on emissions and climate change at CNN.com and Fox News, and not absorb anywhere near the level of accurate context that you receive when you read two articles at BIG Media: Climate change and energy: context for the great debate, Putting global emissions in perspective.
I think you get my point.
Sensationalized news can really get the adrenaline pumping, but it causes intellectual harm and eventual embarrassment when you realize how wrong you were in those debates with friends and family over the big issues.
Get your news (therefore, the facts) at BIG Media, then spend some of the extra time giving your better-equipped brain a rest on a hike or picnic at the beach.
