I’ve got stories today about neo nazis, Russian hackers and fake news, which is pretty much the trifecta of evil these days. Well, maybe not evil. Maybe more like the trifecta of stupid. Also, mental health as it relates to mass shootings. (Spoilers: turns out it doesn’t, so much.)
There’s a new poll out that says Americans’ trust in the news is growing again. There’s a nice article from the Atlantic about Tom Petty, and an amazing read about mental illness in the Pacific Standard. FiveThirtyEight has an excellent article about gun violence today, and Media Matters is knocking down a hoax about a trucking strike in Puerto Rico.
Today we’ve got stories about how the DHS is invading the privacy of immigrants, including legal immigrants, a fake news purveyor who appears to have died of a drug overdose, Trump’s tax cut which is, as predicted, awful, bed bugs (yay, science!), and Jared Kushner’s private email.
