That we need to be constantly entertained while doing something like exercise illustrates how ingrained media consumption (and manipulation!) has become.
But it is interesting to see that many others are fed up with the constant barrage of 24 x 7 “news” (I put that in quotes since most of it is now entertainment, not traditional news reporting).
Me – I go running. I do not even listen to music while running. Clearly, I am weird!
