News fatigue with Amanda Ripley on Thursday's Access Utah
Writer and journalist Amanda Ripley wrote recently in the Washington Post: “I have a secret. I kept it hidden for longer than I care to admit. It felt unprofessional, vaguely shameful. It wasn’t who I wanted to be. But here it is: I’ve been actively avoiding the news for years.” Her Washington Post op ed piece is titled “I stopped reading the news. Is the problem me — or the product?”
