Food or Faucet Analogy

Have you heard about the food analogy to information consumption.  Yes, you might think of the content you absorb - television, radio, web, newspapers, etc. as eating.  How much do you eat?  Is what you are eating satisfying you...good for you?   We complain that we cannot find what we need but that we are constantly hit with news.  The better analogy is a water faucet.  You can gain control over what you see and read.  You just need to think of it that way.  Consider what you spend time on and what content you obtain from an outlet.  Turn it off and on as needed.  Turn it down to the level you need also.  These controls with media and news is possible.
