This app would connect to a news portal like Drudge Report or
CNN and ask "Do you want to see more or less of this kind of
stuff?" You see a story about starving kittens in Bangladesh and
click "NO". "Solar Flares Linked To U.S. Election Upset": "NO".
May Already Be A Zombie And Don't Know It": "NO".
Pretty soon your waking up to morning news about fluffy
unicorns, pretty clouds shaped like flowers and swarms of
happy puppies saving drowning orphans.
Of course you could just click the overall subscription button

Donald Trump Is" or "Just Show Me Stories About How The
World Is Going To Hell In A Hand-basket." I'm guessing these
would be much more popular choices.
