Close US election results plunge social media into nightmare misinformation scenario

When Trump spoke early Wednesday morning, it became clear which long-dreaded election scenario an anxious nation was on the cusp of. “This is a fraud on the American public,” Trump said in remarks delivered from the White House, mixing his campaign with the presidency. “We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election.” Trump’s claim of victory is false — votes are still being counted in a close race — but they heralded his campaign’s intention to work the misinforma...

This Week in Photography Books: Ingvar Kenne

  I’m going back to Jersey next month. (It’s been a while.)
