The current system for delivering news online is broken. Readers and journalists will need to work together to find a new one.
Michael LuoI wrote a long piece about the profusion of news in the digital age, what’s driving it, and whether we’re really any better informed from it. The current system is broken. Journalists and readers need to work together to find a new one.
Apple Inc's new Apple News+ service consolidates popular newspaper and maga...
Michael Luo1/ On this question of whether Apple News+ means you shouldn't subscribe directly to your favorite magazines any longer, here are a few things to think about: still the best way to read ALL that we do @newyorker every day and every week is to subscribe.
There is no way to understand our President’s relationship with the world, his motivations and vulnerabilities, without a far richer picture of his central area of concern—his business—over the past decade.
Michael Luo.@adamdavidson: "It remains astonishing that...we know so little about which individuals or corporations from around the world—and particularly from Russia and the former Soviet Union—have invested in Trump’s business endeavors..."
The report’s formal submission to the Department of Justice will only begin a process that could, if anything, be more confusing and chaotic than much of what has come before.
Michael Luo.@adamdavidson on the Mueller report: “...its formal submission to the Department of Justice will only begin a process that could, if anything, be more confusing and chaotic than much of what has come before.”
Isaac Chotiner interviews David E. McCraw, the deputy general counsel at the New York Times, about his dealings with Trump’s lawyers and his book “Truth in Our Times: Inside the Fight for Press Freedom in the Age of Alternative Facts.”
Michael Luo.@davidmccraw talks w/ @IChotiner: “at many papers, the letter received before publication has a profound effect on the journalism that gets done or doesn’t get done. We accept that being threatened, even being sued, is part of doing business.”
Fox News has always been partisan. But has it become propaganda?
Michael LuoLots of news in latest from @JaneMayerNYer: the killing of the Stormy Daniels story before the election; ordering Gary Cohn to pressure DOJ to file lawsuit to block AT&T-Time Warner deal; possible tipping off Trump on debate question; more.
For followers of the special counsel’s investigation, all that was established by the much anticipated court filing is that he is running one of the most secretive and carefully orchestrated investigations in history.
As leaders decline to act, the numbers grow. In the past 20 years, about 380 Southern Baptist church leaders and volunteers have faced allegations of sexual misconduct, the newspapers found. They were pastors. Deacons. Ministers. Youth pastors....
Michael Luo“In all, since 1998, roughly 380 Southern Baptist church leaders and volunteers have faced allegations of sexual misconduct, the newspapers found.”
Playing not only for the title but the top ranking in the world, Osaka became the first woman since 2001 to back up her first Grand Slam victory by winning the very next major.
Michael Luo.@louisahthomas on Naomi Osaka’s win today: “One senses that she will make her presence felt beyond the world of sports. But, for one day, at least, the drama that had everyone’s attention was a tennis story—and it was riveting.”
Populists often deploy the passive voice, speaking of inequality or a rigged game. Warren’s talk about corruption is bracing and direct. Someone is to blame.
Michael LuoSmart column by @benwallacewells: Part of what has distinguished Warren’s story is that it has a different frame of reference, in which politics is not an argument over the cultural aftermath of the sixties but over the influence won by wealth in the 80s.
Michael Luo.@sbg1 in her latest Letter from Trump's Washington, on Pelosi: "They cheered when she promised transparency and “facts.” Only in the Trump era could an endorsement of the truth be seen as a partisan applause line, but we are where we are."
The Standard’s sources, friends, and sensibility were on one side of the Republican divide over the President. Many of its subscribers, fatally, were on the other.
Michael LuoReally useful @benwallacewells reported dissection of what really happened at the Weekly Standard. "In the Trump years, the Standard’s reputation in Washington held. The broader brand did not."
