Google News rolled out a redesign in the last few days, and it’s a great way for people to get their headlines and what interests them the most. I get my news from the Google Now feed on my Android home screen, but this app works in a similar way of delivering the news to …

The Washington Post published an op-ed on March 29th entitled “I Am Tired of Being a Jewish Man’s Rebellion” by Carey Purcell, and I wish I could say that it was an April Fools joke. The article comes across as idiotic and makes her sound like she isn’t the brightest bulb in the box. Now …

Back in October I talked about The Athletic and paying for your news, and how I had hoped that they would come to the NYC market.

Yesterday I read an article, in which the writer blamed the news deliverer for bringing him bad news, before it had been confirmed. I’ve discussed similarly in the past and I am going to focus on it again today. People need to go to news sources they trust. If you can’t rely on a news source, …
