By John S. McCright



Apparently Facebook wants to tell me what news to follow. Have you been following the controversy over Facebook and how it is secretly feeding us — well, only its users, but with Facebook’s 1.2 billion users that amounts to pretty much all of us — the news stories it wants us to see?

Posted on May 26, 2016 |
By Rebecca Kneale Gould



OK. I admit it. I’m obsessed with “Hamilton.” I’m obsessed withthe musical, the man and, now that classes are over — well, maybe a month before — the biography by Ron Chernow. Every time I get in my car now, I turn on VPR for the obligatory five minutes of feigned interest in the news and then switch to the CD player (yes, it’s an older car).
