Hillary vs. The World

thedailybeast.com — There aren't going to be a lot of "Minnesota nice" jokes coming out of this weekend's Democratic National Committee meeting here in the Twin Cities. Sure, speakers did obligatory eye-pops at the promise of state fair food, made Garrison Keillor references, and sang Paul Wellstone praises.

Bill Bryson Fears Humans More Than Bears

nytimes.com — Park rangers along the Appalachian Trail are preparing for a huge influx of visitors, thanks to the release of ''A Walk in the Woods,'' the movie based on your book about trying to hike the whole thing. What type of person do you think would see that movie and think, I want to do that, too?

Tyra Banks Isn’t Running a Democracy Here

nytimes.com — You've been hosting ''America's Next Top Model'' for more than a decade. It gives you a unique vantage point on how reality television has influenced the people who consume it. How are the young people who audition for the show today different from those of 10 years ago?

Ice Cube Might Have Dinner With the President

nytimes.com — In a trailer for ''Straight Outta Compton,'' the N.W.A. biopic that you co-produced, you say a lot of people don't realize that your music was a form of nonviolent protest. Is that because the nonviolent part wasn't very clear? I think it's very clear. We put our frustrations on a record, and we were creative.

How I Got Jon Stewart All Wrong

thedailybeast.com — My own contribution to the history of Jon Stewart's tenure at The Daily Show is small and ignominious: I trashed his first show. A web publication that no longer exists had assigned me to write about the new guy taking over from the plasticine, frat-boy finger-puller Craig Kilborn.

What We Talk About When We Talk Trump

thedailybeast.com — Acres of pixels have been burned out by people writing about Trump, but what's remarkable is how relatively little we have to say about him. There's no doubt his persona inspires descriptions as florid and memorable as the man himself.

Jermaine Affonso Can’t Escape the Garbage, Either

nytimes.com — You are the editor in chief of ClickHole, a website The Onion started last year that satirizes web media. The most common way I've heard people describe their experience with ClickHole is that they both laughed and felt bad about themselves. Is that the mixture of feelings you were hoping to inspire?

The mysteries of Donald Trump's endorsement

theguardian.com — The mystery of Donald Trump's endorsement of Mitt Romney is as large and complicated as his hair. First, there is the question of why Trump chose to endorse Romney at all. Up until now, he has shown his bafflingly marketable disdain for the fellow one-percenter.

Ted Cruz Is More of a Spider-Man Guy

nytimes.com — Your new book is called ''A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America.'' A few months ago you were in the news for warning a little girl that ''the world is on fire.'' Do you believe setting things on fire is good or bad? Both.

The Gross-Out Politics of Abortion

thedailybeast.com — The primary driver behind the views of and discussion about the Center for Medical Progress's Planned Parenthood "sting" video is disgust, something akin to the morbid fascination that drives people to Jackass's violent antics or clinical acne extractions.
