The spread of internet connectivity and social media has greatly increased the news/noise level. Instead of the 2-3 news items you heard on the local radio station, you can be bombarded with texts, alerts, robocalls, emails etc. while out in the tractor, combine or pickup. On Friday, you might have heard about the new record high in the S&P 500, the Crop Tour results, the Cattle on Feed report, no progress on North Korea nukes, no progress admitted to on China trade, some celebrity died.
