Fatigued, avoidance and obsessed: the news consumption continuum.

politics politics podcast logo

Between the pandemic, political polarization and the crisis in Ukraine, the news cycle these days is, well, even more chaotic than usual. On this episode of the WUNC Politics Podcast, Professor Benjamin Toff discusses his research around news avoidance and fatigue, as well as both the consequences - and benefits - for those who are not regular news consumers.

Jeff Tiberii covers politics for WUNC. Before that, he served as the station's Greensboro Bureau Chief.
