No, this is not about diversifying your portfolio.  Hopefully, you and your advisor(s) have already developed a strategy that suits your circumstances.

This is a suggestion that you consider diversifying your sources of information.  A sound investment strategy probably incorporates a measure of belief in the future based on an informed understanding of relevant facts.

It has become increasingly evident that the national discourse is highly polarized and the mass media has piled on.  As a result, news coverage by mainstream networks and publications have become so partisan that it is sometimes difficult to discern that they are all actually talking about the same events.

It may be difficult to watch or read commentary that is materially in conflict with your personal beliefs.  However, formulating a rational investment strategy, may benefit from a broad assessment of events.

All comments and suggestions are welcome.
