Are you sick of all the purposely inflammatory political headlines that seem to be popping up everywhere nowadays? You can’t be as sick of it all as Vera Gibbons, Founder of NonPoliticalNews.com — she created a whole website and company just to escape!

The service typically covers news stories that would be considered lifestyle content. NonPoliticalNews’s subscription emails bring readers a selection of headlines in different categories including fitness and diet, consumer personal finance, fashion and beauty, and health and wellness. The stories covered are usually a bit offbeat and not getting as much attention from the press as they otherwise would have. She includes stories such as the Powerball jackpot, the latest diet trends and the news about recent advances in medicine. When asked about her curated content, Gibbons said, “I like to say this is content for conversation, not content for animosity.”

Takeaway

You don’t have to be a political journalist to agree that the headlines nowadays are becoming more politically charged and more divisive than ever. The kinds of headlines that have become dominant in the news cycle have inspired a ton of negativity and conflict between people. In our views-obsessed modern age of social media, a lot of the time, all views are thought of as good views, which leads content creators and distributors to produce and broadcast more inflammatory content.

The worst part of the divisive content feedback loop is that all of this highly charged political content can sometimes overshadow other timely news stories. Curated feeds like this one are a great way to keep yourself grounded and remind yourself that there’s a world beyond the political bubble we all find ourselves in at times.
