Innocence Deniers, Home Robots, and Trump’s Agenda
No matter what: Lara Bazelon rounds up examples of prosecutors who refuse to exonerate prisoners who are quite obviously innocent. They’re a diverse group and bizarrely stubborn.

Please, no: Possible presidential candidate Oprah has a history of promotion of pseudoscience that makes Kurt Andersen very nervous.

For fun: Barack stays in the pocket.
