Reading news is fun, inspires and gets me excited. I get a lot of energy from learning. However, there is a downside to reading news. With information becoming very cheap to produce, it becomes harder to manage my attention, see the Impact of reading news.
For me, news is information about events that happened in topics I care about. My criteria for good news are:
What "kind" of news I don't like basically describes the "mainstream" news that focus on being clickbait, based on emotions, suspense or urgency.
To get the news I like to read, I need to be careful about what sources I select.
Currently I use Feedly as a news aggregator. The advantage of having a central place are that the read/unread state is synchronized across devices.
For reading I use ReadKit, mostly on iOS and sometimes on macOS. It has a great "reader" feature which downloads news (e.g. blog post) and shows only relevant text and images without cookie banners and ads.
