The media’s business model used to be about information, now it’s about provocation. Whether it’s left or right, there’s more money in provoking us than informing us. Notice how many reports, columns, panels, etc., are designed to provoke anger and anxiety. Why? Because the more anger and anxiety they can produce, the more people will watch, which means more advertising dollars. Harmful feelings are more profitable than helpful facts.
So, how do we change this? Let’s follow David in Psalm 36 as he switches off the human anger and anxiety channel and switches over to the divine love and life channel. His example says, Switch channels to switch feelings.
