Former Spy Chief Ric Grenell Resurfaces As Foot Soldier In Trump’s War On Reality

Election week, Trump, and the chaos of 2020 prove that cable news feels more outdated than ever

Business Insider Cable news coverage during election week stressed people out, but it didn't have to be this way. Spencer Platt/Getty Images The stress of election week didn't have to be as bad as it was. Despite warnings from network hosts, the hour-by-hour model of cable news and its attention grabbing alerts were poorly suited for the procedural quirks of the 2020 election.

It’s not too late to cancel Thanksgiving

What’s your plan for Thanksgiving?

To me, being outdoors mitigates...
