Cancel Mainstream Media
Claim back your sanity, block them all.
We believe that mainstream media, on top of spreading fake information, cause very avoidable social clashes which destabilize your country, community, and more importantly, your own sanity.
Mainstream media will make you hate people who you would have, in other circumstances, have fun with, and collaborated with.
The best medication is to avoid them from taking your attention by using several tools preventing you to see and react, and thus preventing you from being manipulated.
We advise you to follow news, not from mainstream media but from specific journalists who have repeatedly demonstrated integrity to their work.
If you think you are too intelligent to be manipulated, you are wrong, nobody is. While we can't know if we are being manipulated, we all recognize those who try to manipulate, this repository is about cancelling them.
This repository will not make a distinction between "legit mainstream media" and "illegitimate mainstream media", this is for you to choose. If you don't have time to choose, the sanest default is to block all of them.
How to use this repository
This repository will include more and more tooling to make your job easier. For now it only contains:
- twitter, a list of twitter handle tied to mainstream media.
- BlockTwitter.side, automatically generated, a selenium IDE project to automatically block. See docs.
How to contribute?
Just make a pull request to add a mainstream media you want to cancel. Edit only twitter, we will generate the other files for you.
Which media should be cancelled?
Does it publish news? It should be cancelled. What they think politically, the language they talk, nothing of it matter, they should be in our list. If you like a specific news organisation, feel free to unblock some of them.
