and even hyper-partisan news from both sides (harder).
How We Broke Democracy (But Not in the Way You Think)

Appealing as this idea may be, I think it is wrong. Good faith attempts at objectivity in journalism are a relatively new feature — appearing maybe half way through the history of the printed word, or even later? Isn’t it so that in the early US, all papers were wildly and openly partisan? I think a better service would be to identify sites as proudly partisan or attempting to be objective. Maybe a five point scale: proudly far left, kinda left, attempting balance, kinda right, proudly far right. There is real value in such explicit context.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
