It’s no secret that for just about everyone but Facebook and Google, online ad revenue is on the decline. That’s forced some of the biggest news publications, including The New York Times and The Atlantic, to limit free content and install paywalls. It’s hard to blame them, as quality content deserves fair…
New York Times columnist Bari Weiss, a seemingly inexhaustible source of uninformed opinions, titled her most recent tirade “We’re All Fascists Now,” a sarcastic dig against political correctness, campus politics, and The Intolerant Left. Unwittingly, it begins by defending a public figure who has appeared on an…
Text-altering browser extensions are all fun and games until you forget to turn them off in the most awkward situations possible. Like, say, a situation in which you’re editing a column for the New York Times that fact checks the President’s claims on trade and you accidentally publish a bit of complete nonsense.
The Grey Lady has pulled some reprehensible stunts over the years, including writing puff pieces on neo-Nazis, helping lead the United States into a deadly war in the Middle East, and even employing Bret Stevens. But today it finally burned its most dedicated customers: those of us who pay the paper of record $6.99 a…
Star Wars, a story about the history of a fictional galaxy far, far away, made lots of history in this one, and the New York Times is selling a nice compendium of it all.
Flood waters are receding in Houston after the historic rainfall from Hurricane Harvey earlier this month. But the water itself was not the only threat. Flooding breached dozens of waste treatment centers, sending a deluge of bacteria throughout the city. The New York Times reports on the victims of the bacterial…
The New York Times op-ed section yesterday published an opinion piece that defended Facebook from calls that it should fact-check the news as a way of combating fake stories.
Donald J. Trump, businessman and president-elect, finally had his meeting with the New York Times this week. In their lengthy chat, the ascendant leader of the free world shared what appeared to be words of wisdom passed down to him by a cartoon sea captain: “The wind is a very deceiving thing.”
The New York Times is currently tracking the state of tonight’s hellish presidential election with what appears to be a ... pressure gauge? Speedometer? SocialFlow resonance meter? ... illustrating the leading candidate’s chances at winning the Electoral College and thus the presidency. As you can see above, as of…
As the popular polls tighten between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, it’s been noticeable that the orange one hasn’t had one of his regularly scheduled Twitter meltdowns recently. According to the New York Times, that’s because he has relented to allowing staff final approval over his 140 character dispatches.
People use Twitter for different reasons. Celebrities use it to self-promote, teens use it to talk about Selena Gomez, and I use it to share my own dumb thoughts with the world. New York Times tech reporter Vindu Goel, however, often uses it to interact with brands—specifically, to yell at them when he’s displeased.
Do you live in Los Angeles and pay for online access to the New York Times? Have I got a cheapskate lifehack for you.
The Presidential Horse Race is a uniquely American spectacle, but unless you live in one of the (sparsely populated) early caucus states, you probably haven’t gotten to experience it first hand. Well, if you’ve missing your chance to “Feel the Bern” in real life, at least know you can experience it virtually.
You’ve probably heard the saying “celebrities die in threes.” This, of course, is one of the more silly things that a human can utter. But in case you needed someone to fact-check this one for you, the New York Times went to the trouble in an article from 2014:
I look to my left and see a sorrowful parent sitting on the curb, comforting his daughter. I look to my right, and I see notes of sympathy among many flowers. Around me, I hear people murmuring respects and singing in French. I’m in the middle of a vigil in the streets of Paris, a week after last month’s tragic…
I went to Pyongyang today: I stayed in an immaculate North Korean hotel room, watched as the country’s ballistic missiles paraded past me, and saw thousands of followers wave flags and flowers in honor of their leader.
The New York Times posted a story today about Greenland’s melting ice, which could add another 20 feet to global sea levels. To give us the real scope, they used video shot by a drone, capturing a huge lake of meltwater that’s one of many. It’s stunning, worrying, and strangely beautiful. (Mostly really worrying.)

“The modern man cries…often,” reads Brian Lombardi’s puzzling, unintentionally satirical profile of what’s become of many male adults these days. A bunch of people told me I should write a response, so here you go.
