Why it’s wrong to blame mass killings on mental illness
Donald Trump has tried to lay the blame for America’s mass shooting epidemic on history’s most convenient scapegoat: mental illness. Or, as he has taken to calling people with psychiatric disease, “mentally ill monsters.” (He’s also referred to “nut jobs,” “lunatics,” and “wackos.”)  Trump, reading to Americans from a teleprompter, declared that “mental illness and […]...

Bernie Sanders’s media criticism
There’s nothing unusual about politicians complaining of unfair coverage. Recently, however, a number of Democratic presidential candidates have ventured beyond garden-variety gripes to make broader critiques of the political press.

In other words, Yahoo vaporized about 99 percent of the platform’s theoretical value in the six years it owned the company. But apart from this massive bonfire of value, one of the most int...
