This is the configuration panel from Feedly on the Web and it's GREAT. I can eliminate the display of "popular" articles in favor of just seeing articles in reverse chronological order.
Thanks Feedly. Keep up the good work!
I never in a million years thought I would be up here on stage appealing for the freedom and safety of American journalists at home.
I believe in being truthful, not neutral. And I believe we must stop banalizing the truth.
And we have to be prepared to fight especially hard for the truth in a world where the Oxford English Dictionary just announced its word of 2016: "post-truth."
Post-truth is defined as an adjective "relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief," according to the dictionary. [source]Trump and those who support him have no respect for the truth. In fact, they benefit from the lies they tell. The "Trump dictionary" seems to define things in terms of how they reflect on Donald Trump. For example, "rigged" is anything which makes Trump look bad. He, and those who support him, will lie without any regret if it benefits them. And, they will fight anyone who support a differing view of the truth.
Wael Ghonim, one of the fathers of the Arab spring, dubbed the social media revolution, now says:
"The same medium that so effectively transmits a howling message of change also appears to undermine the ability to make it. Social media amplifies the human tendency to bind with one's own kind. It tends to reduce complex social challenges to mobilizing slogans that reverberate in echo chambers of the like-minded rather than engage in persuasion, dialogue, and the reach for consensus. Hate speech and untruths appear alongside good intentions and truths." [emphasis added]Yes, I think she does. We all do.
