I think I agree with the idea Sunstein presents that part of the charm of newspapers is the chance articles you can come across; it is a good way to come across interesting random factoids. I also see his point about how like and like breeds extremity. That said, I feel like playing Devil’s Advocate: I have trouble staying on top of, or even vaguely in touch with, the news; the nice thing about tailored news reports is that I will actually stay on top of them. Further, depending on how you tailor your news, it might come out like a Google search, where the results relate to whatever you are looking, but still have enough variance to be interesting and cover a number of fields.
