  1. I enjoyed the Nolan article on the futility of political reporting. I’ve felt annoyance for awhile about how news sites are running the same vapid content that says the same thing: “5 Takeaways from the Democractic/Republican Debate” or “Look who won this meaningless, statistically invalid online poll!” or “Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump” or “This is what Facebook is saying American voters are concerned about.” You know what I’m concerned about? That Facebook knows what I’m concerned about!

    I would love to see these sites write in-depth articles about third-party candidates or political issues that aren’t being talked about by the major candidates.
