- "Internet publishers are now adding workers at nearly twice the rate newspaper publishers are losing them. This isn't just a shift in medium. It's also a shift in sociopolitics, and a radical one."
- The Southern Poverty Law Center is sounding the alarm about a group of pro-Trump activists calling themselves the Fraternal Order of Alt Knights.
