On 26th September 2018 President Donald Trump held the fourth solo press conference of his presidency. President Trump most likely held this conference in order to fight back against his administration’s numerous scandals, as well as the incredibly controversial nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The presser also took place only one day after Trump was laughed at while speaking at the United Nations General Assembly. This should have been a fairly straightforward speech by Trump. However, as with all things the President seems to be involved in, the conference quickly derailed and devolved into utter absurdity.
ince the mid-1950s, the Village Voice has provided an alternative, local voice to residents of New York City. However, as of last Friday August 31st, 2018, this venerable institution has officially been shut down.
The Village Voice’s issues began in much the same manner as the problems plaguing newspapers in cities across North America. Since the mass adoption of the Internet in the late 1990s and early 2000s people (especially young people) have increasingly turned to the web for their source of information. This has been a boon for ordinary citizens, as information can now be found at the tip of one’s fingertips, completely free. However, it has had a devastating impact on papers from Halifax to Houston.
