Today is for the news junkies. It’s a difficult time for us, isn’t it?

News in a Digital Age” is part of the “Truth Decay” research series by RAND, analyzing how news has changed since 2000 or so. If you’re interested in this sort of thing, I took the (free!) online course on Navigating Misinformation, which was fantastic, and recommend First Draft and Bellingcat for more on how to evaluate what you see and hear these days. (I sort of want to work for Bellingcat when I grow up.)

If you have an iPhone and you’re worried about privacy, Jumbo is a new app which promises to help clean up your social media.

And for those of us who like history, the Library of Congress now has the AP wire dispatches from 1915 to 1930 online!
