This script adds a toggle button for the top news on the main page, so you can hide the news section if you want. Your preference is stored in the browser's local storage, which lives until you clear your browser's cache - either the global cache or the one belonging to eRepublik.com.
Q: Why I made this script? A: It's a protest against the crap published in the media (or as comments), crap that doesn't get moderated by the eRepublik team.

No need for thanks, although donations are always appreciated. I hope this script won't be popular but at least you now have the means to turn off the poor quality media when you need it. Good luck!
