Did We Pay More Attention To Melania Trump's Style Than We Said We Would?

If there was anything as headline-grabbing in 2016 as the sparring between then-Presidential nominees Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton, it was the role Melania Trump played as the potential First Lady.

The Media Didn't Forget The Rust Belt — You Did

Anne Trubek is the founder and director of Belt Publishing. She lives in Cleveland, Ohio. The views expressed here are her own.When I founded Belt Publishing in 2013, I lived in Ohio, the famously mighty swing state with the power to decide elections (“as goes Ohio, so goes the nation”), which at that time was blue. But electoral politics was not the motivating factor behind my decision to launch an online magazine and small press dedicated to the post-industrial Midwest. I did so simply becaus...

We Had Two People Argue About Whether The Kardashians Are Good Or Evil

Be honest: Do you keep up with the Kardashians?It's a question that almost always triggers two very different responses.
