- Facebook's action might sound tough, but is not nearly enough given the perilous moment our democracy now finds itself in thanks in large part to Trump’s refusal to accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.
- There is a reason TV viewing and streaming subscriptions soared during the pandemic. We relate to those screens in deep and fundamental ways. That’s about us, just as much or more than it is about TV.
- “The Bachelorette” returns to ABC next week on June 7 and Maryland fans should get excited — an Ellicott City native is one of the contestant’s vying for Katie Thurston’s love.
