The problem with this is everyone says to turn off the financial press except for their own academic paper, or their own blog, or anything from the "well-respecteds", or the "good guys", or the 80 millionth version of a finance book, or the latest prognostication/pontification from an expert, etc., etc. Exceptions always seem to be made about what constitutes noise. Then reality sets in, the answers change, and suddenly there is a new reason to make an exception to what constitutes noise. To me, it's all noise. I will get flamed royally for this but to me even attending a Bogleheads conference is tantamount to noise (with the huge exception of the opportunity to meet Mssrs. Bogle and Larimore).
I've probably spent the last year and a half following Munger's warning to be able to make a case against your own belief or opinion. I have really really tried to make a case for at least some complexity, for listening to at least some noise, but the deeper I get into systems thinking, into the massive role luck plays in outcomes (I wholeheartedly recommend Annie Duke's new book, Thinking in Bets), into the folly in chasing maximization, into the frailty of human thinking, into the miraculous effects of compounding from simply doing nothing stupid in pursuit of brilliance, cleverness, or ego, the farther I drift from all noise, I don't care who is discharging it.
Maybe when one is learning one must wade through deep and muddy waters of financial "information" (making many mistakes as a result), but eventually one must find one's own clean shore, free of pollutants.
