Opinion | Joe Rogan Is the New Mainstream Media

Opinion | Joe Rogan Is the New Mainstream Media

When I saw the news that the king of all podcasting, Joe Rogan, had inked a deal with Spotify for his widely popular show I texted to congratulate him on getting crazy rich. How rich? “Weirdly richer,” he replied. “Like it doesn’t register. Seems fake.” According to The Wall Street Journal, the deal could amount to more than $100 million, a number that Rogan doesn’t want to discuss. “It feels gross,” he told me Thursday night. “Especially right now, when people can’t work.” News of Tuesday’s deal, which gave Spotify exclusive rights to “The Joe Rogan Experience,” sent the company’s stock...

On Facebook, Misinformation Is More Popular Now Than in 2016

On Facebook, Misinformation Is More Popular Now Than in 2016

During the 2016 presidential election, Russian operatives used Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media platforms to spread disinformation to divide the American electorate. Since then, the social media companies have spent billions of dollars and hired tens of thousands of people to help clean up their act. But have the platforms really become more sophisticated at handling misinformation? Not necessarily. People are engaging more on Facebook today with news outlets that routinely publish misinformation than they did before the 2016 election, according to new research from...

Tim Kaine on What It’s Like to Debate Mike Pence

Tim Kaine on What It’s Like to Debate Mike Pence

Four years ago, when Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia faced off against Mike Pence at the vice-presidential debate, the encounter put two drastically different debate styles on display: Mr. Pence came across as mild-mannered and more formal while Mr. Kaine, a litigator by training, was more of an attack dog, with a tendency to interrupt and talk over Mr. Pence. Even as Mr. Pence made little effort to directly rebut attacks against Donald Trump, Mr. Kaine tried at nearly every turn to offer praise for his running mate, Hillary Clinton. Ahead of this year’s vice-presidential debate on Wednesday...

Grand Juror in Breonna Taylor Case Says Deliberations Were Misrepresented

Grand Juror in Breonna Taylor Case Says Deliberations Were Misrepresented

The Kentucky attorney general’s office said it would release the panel’s recordings after a grand juror contended in a court filing that its discussions were inaccurately characterized. Breonna Taylor's family and the lawyer Ben Crump, right, said the charges a Kentucky grand jury agreed upon in the police killing of Ms. Taylor were not enough. A juror in the Breonna Taylor case contends that the Kentucky attorney general misrepresented the grand jury’s deliberations and failed to offer the panel the option of indicting the two officers who fatally shot the young woman, according to the...

Charting an Empire: A Timeline of Trump’s Finances

Charting an Empire: A Timeline of Trump’s Finances

The tax returns that Mr. Trump has fought to keep secret cast a harsh light on his finances, revealing a businessman who regularly reports losing so much money that he has gone for years paying little or no income taxes and today finds himself in a tightening financial vise. He has churned through hundreds of millions of dollars in a series of career reinventions, aided by tax-avoidance maneuvers, all laid bare for the first time in tax-return data obtained by The New York Times that extends over more than two decades. The returns comprise information that Mr. Trump has disclosed to the...

Trump’s Taxes Show Chronic Losses and Years of Income Tax Avoidance

Trump’s Taxes Show Chronic Losses and Years of Income Tax Avoidance

The Times obtained Donald Trump’s tax information extending over more than two decades, revealing struggling properties, vast write-offs, an audit battle and hundreds of millions in debt coming due. Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750. He had paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — largely because he reported losing much more money than he made. As the president wages a re-election campaign that polls say he is in danger of losing, his finances are under stress,...

Jack Dorsey on Twitter’s Mistakes

“Do you believe that you are one of the most powerful people on Earth right now?” Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s C.E.O., was quick to deflect. “No,” he laughed. “Everything that has made Twitter powerful has come from the people using it.” That was one of the first questions that Michael asked Mr. Dorsey in a wide-ranging interview on the role of his platform in shaping public discourse and beliefs in America. The conversation that followed probed the limits, dangers and responsibilities of that role — revealing just how complicated the struggle against misinformation and polarization on social...

Opinion | Lebanon’s Mushroom Cloud of Incompetence

Opinion | Lebanon’s Mushroom Cloud of Incompetence

My first summer job was at the port of Beirut. It was the late ’90s and I was just a teenager. I spent muggy months entering shipping data as part of an ambitious new program to move the port from analog to digital log keeping. It was as unglamorous as you would expect from a bottom-rung job in the bowels of a Middle East bureaucracy. But despite the heat and the monotony, there was optimism. The port was critical infrastructure in an economy rejuvenating after 15 years of civil war. Digital log keeping was part of the future — and an attempt to introduce much-needed order and transparency...

Opinion | The Second Defeat of Bernie Sanders

Opinion | The Second Defeat of Bernie Sanders

Three months ago, Bernie Sanders lost his chance at the Democratic nomination, after a brief moment in which his socialist revolution seemed poised to raze the bastions of neoliberal power. But the developments of the last month, the George Floyd protests and their cultural repercussions, may prove the more significant defeat for the Sanders cause. In the winter he merely lost a presidential nomination; in the summer he may be losing the battle for the future of the left. Throughout his career, Sanders has stood for the proposition that left-wing politics lost its way after the 1970s by...

E.U. May Bar American Travelers as It Reopens Borders, Citing Failures on Virus

European Union countries rushing to revive their economies and reopen their borders after months of coronavirus restrictions are prepared to block Americans from entering because the United States has failed to control the scourge, according to draft lists of acceptable travelers reviewed by The New York Times. That prospect, which would lump American visitors in with Russians and Brazilians as unwelcome, is a stinging blow to American prestige in the world and a repudiation of President Trump’s handling of the virus in the United States, which has more than 2.3 million cases and upward of...

Trump Can’t Immediately End DACA, Supreme Court Rules

The program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, protects people brought to the United States as children by shielding them from deportation and letting them work. The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the Trump administration may not immediately proceed with its plan to end a program protecting about 700,000 young immigrants known as Dreamers from deportation. The court’s ruling was a blow to one of President Trump’s central campaign promises — that as president he would “immediately terminate” an executive order by former President Barack Obama that Mr. Trump had called an illegal...

Opinion | Tom Cotton: Send In the Troops

Editors’ Note, June 5, 2020: After publication, this essay met strong criticism from many readers (and many Times colleagues), prompting editors to review the piece and the editing process. Based on that review, we have concluded that the essay fell short of our standards and should not have been published. The basic arguments advanced by Senator Cotton — however objectionable people may find them — represent a newsworthy part of the current debate. But given the life-and-death importance of the topic, the senator’s influential position and the gravity of the steps he advocates, the essay...

Trump Prepares Order to Limit Social Media Companies’ Protections

Trump Prepares Order to Limit Social Media Companies’ Protections

The move is almost certain to face a court challenge and signals the latest salvo by President Trump to crack down on online platforms. The Trump administration is preparing an executive order intended to curtail the legal protections that shield social media companies from liability for what gets posted on their platforms, two senior administration officials said early Thursday. Such an order, which officials said was still being drafted and was subject to change, would make it easier for federal regulators to argue that companies like Facebook, Google, YouTube and Twitter are...

Scrutiny of Social-Distance Policing as 35 of 40 Arrested Are Black

Scrutiny of Social-Distance Policing as 35 of 40 Arrested Are Black

Mayor Bill de Blasio said the police had enforced rules properly, but other officials expressed concern about tactics similar to unfair “stop and frisk” practices. A police officer enforcing social-distancing rules broke up a group of people on a stoop during a nighttime cookout in East New York, Brooklyn, punching one man in the face. Another dispute between officers and residents of the same predominantly black neighborhood over the guidelines led to a man being knocked unconscious. Days later, three men were arrested after taking part in a sprawling vigil at the Queensbridge Houses for...

At a time of federal abdication, these state leaders are thinking seriously about alternatives to the existing model of American federalism.

7 Answers to Questions About the Malaria Drug Trump Keeps Pushing

7 Answers to Questions About the Malaria Drug Trump Keeps Pushing

Here are the facts on hydroxychloroquine, which the president has promoted despite little evidence that it works against the coronavirus. Hydroxychloroquine was approved decades ago to treat malaria, and it is also used to treat autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. There is no proof that any drug can cure or prevent infection with the coronavirus. But in the face of an exploding pandemic with a frightening death toll, people are desperate for a bit of hope, a chance to believe there is something that will help. The drug that has received the most attention is...

Bernie Sanders Drops Out of 2020 Democratic Race for President

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont dropped out of the Democratic presidential race on Wednesday, concluding a quest for the White House that began five years ago in relative obscurity but ultimately elevated him as a champion of the working class, a standard-bearer of American liberalism and the leader of a self-styled political revolution. Mr. Sanders’s exit from the race establishes former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. as the presumptive nominee to challenge President Trump, and leaves the progressive movement without a prominent voice in the 2020 race. In a live stream on Wednesday...

In Lombardy, Italy, the authorities are analyzing location data transmitted by citizens’ mobile phones to determine how many people are obeying a government lockdown order and the typical distances they move every day.

In a stark moment of political de-escalation, Mr. Sanders signaled that he wants to press Joe Biden on issues but may not want to fight to the bitter end like he did against Hillary Clinton in 2016. It was a concession speech, of a kind: Addressing reporters on Wednesday, Senator Bernie Sanders bowed not to Joseph R. Biden Jr., who trounced him in a second consecutive week of primary elections, but to the reality of his political predicament. Stripped of his briefly held status as the Democratic front-runner, Mr. Sanders acknowledged that he was “losing” to Mr. Biden but stopped short of...

If you buy a house in Chicago and want to register the deed, the Cook County Recorder of Deeds will accept two kinds of submissions: paper records and scanned images of paper records. No matter which option you choose, the clerks will manually type the information into the county database. Roughly once a week, someone — for example, an addict claiming a home that actually belongs to a grandparent with dementia — will mail in a fake document, and “if they formatted it correctly, we have to record it,” said John Mirkovic, the deputy recorder. “It’s one of the main reasons we’re so interested...

A classified briefing to House members is said to have angered the president, who complained that Democrats would “weaponize” the disclosure. Intelligence officials warned House lawmakers last week that Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump re-elected, five people familiar with the matter said, a disclosure to Congress that angered Mr. Trump, who complained that Democrats would use it against him. The day after the Feb. 13 briefing to lawmakers, the president berated Joseph Maguire, the outgoing acting director of national intelligence, for allowing it...
