The Fall Of Mic Was A Warning

The Fall Of Mic Was A Warning

Esther Bergdahl felt invigorated. How could she not? It was 2014, and she had just joined the millennial-centric news site PolicyMic, where something exciting always seemed to be happening. That January, Forbes included the company’s co-founders on its annual “30 Under 30” list. A few months later, the site announced it had secured $10 million in a funding round. That June, PolicyMic rebranded simply as Mic after buying the domain for $500,000, according to company sources. The company explained the switch at the time by saying the new name reflected its “expanded focus and bold vision.” ...

Trump And RNC Sue California Over New Tax Return Law

James Comey: If Reports Are Correct, Trump Engaged In 'Shocking Abuse Of Power'

“The House has no choice but to pursue an impeachment inquiry,” Comey says in Politicon interview.

Comey blasted Trump’s reported behavior in an interview with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace at the bipartisan Politicon political convention in Nashville, Tennessee.

Tennessee Lawmakers Consider Criminalizing Abortion In All Cases

Tennessee Lawmakers Consider Criminalizing Abortion In All Cases

Tennessee attempted to pass the same bill during this year’s legislative session but stopped short when lawmakers realized it would result in the state losing costly court battles. Tennessee lawmakers said Monday they are considering whether to seek one of the nation’s strictest abortion bans even as such laws continue to be struck down in court. At issue is a proposal to prohibit abortion once a pregnancy is detected. While a similar bill stalled in the Republican-controlled Statehouse earlier this year, backers are renewing efforts now to collect enough support ahead of the 2020...

Women’s Soccer Put Equal Pay On The Agenda. Now What?

Women’s Soccer Put Equal Pay On The Agenda. Now What?

On top of winning the World Cup, the U.S. women’s soccer team did something else truly amazing this month: They got the whole country talking about economics ― specifically, equal pay for women. At a parade in their honor in New York on Wednesday, crowds chanted for equal pay. And the wage gap ― the difference between what men and women earn ― became the subject of conversation on sports radio and in places typically unbothered by the gender inequality. The question now is: What’s next? Right now in the U.S., women are paid on average 80 cents for every dollar a man earns, and the pay...

Nearly 800 Former Boy Scouts Come Forward With New Sex Abuse Allegations

Nearly 800 former Boy Scouts claimed in a recent lawsuit that the Boy Scouts of America failed to protect them from sexual abuse at the hands of troop leaders and others in positions of power.

The accusations range from groping to rape. “It’s the...

Inside The Secret Border Patrol Facebook Group Where Agents Joke About Migrant Deaths And Post Sexist Memes

Inside The Secret Border Patrol Facebook Group Where Agents Joke About Migrant Deaths And Post Sexist Memes
