I now avoid cable tv for this reason. It has become an incessant series unwatchable fomentations.

Outrage is frequently a drama queen’s way of virtue signalling

Glenn Beck has already walked through this issue with his book.

He may be weird in personality and something else, but he's knowledgeable and got this one right.

Most of the article is behind a paywall.

But I would say that the easiest way is not to go looking for reasons to be outraged. Many on this board will go to non-traditional news outlets to find obscure stories that fuel their senses of outrage. Why? There is probably enough in the big stories of the day to get your outrage, if you really need it. No need to go looking for it. Trump degrading the presidency and America might be worthy of a little outrage. Misbehavior by a celebrity (and moreso a B-list celebrity)? Not so much.

LOL. Good one. Fake outrage is even more problematic now.
