We’re Live Fact-Checking the Third and Final Presidential Debate

wired.com — Nineteen more days, everyone. We only have to survive 19 more days until the unpleasantness of the 2016 presidential election turns into the whining about whoever we elect. Tonight, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton meet for the last time face to face before Election Day in a debate moderated by Fox News host Chris Wallace at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

A Few Memories of Harassment and Assualt

medium.com — I am so proud of my friends who are sharing their stories of sexual assault. On Facebook. On Twitter. In texts and phone calls. The most horrific thing about the kind of assault Donald Trump bragged about is how much we all accept it as a fact of life.

WIRED Live Blog: Fact-Checking the First Presidential Debate

wired.com — Will Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton talk about self-driving trucks tonight at the first presidential debate?

What Will Ensure Your Social Media Protest Is Overrun By Trolls?

wired.com — A hashtag. (This post was inspired by the New York Times.) Billionaire investor and Facebook board member Peter Thiel has never shied away from contrarian ideas.

Thanks For the Mortality Check, CNN’s Many Countdown Clocks!

wired.com — Everything in life is a countdown to something- an election, a Trump speech, another Russian hack -but, in the end, we're all counting down to the same thing: death.

You Can Finally Hear (and Watch) a New Frank Ocean Album

wired.com — We've been thinkin' 'bout you, Frank Ocean! In the four years since the release of Ocean's Grammy-winning, happy-making Channel Orange, the 28-year-old singer-songwriter has been teasing us with promises (and more promises...and more promises) of new music.

Why #Lochtegate Is the Diversion America Deserves

wired.com — Look, we're a nation on edge. We need diversion. Some had hoped the 2016 Rio Olympics would provide that, but then NBC made it nearly impossible to watch the only event anyone cares about-shotput (kidding, obviously we're talking about gymnastics, jeez, we're patriots after all)-and so for the past two weeks, the election has continued to dominate our precious mental space.

Trump Hates the Media. Now a Media Exec’s Running His Campaign

wired.com — Donald Trump's bid for the White House has always been a media circus. Now, it's being run by one of the ringleaders. The Trump campaign announced today that it has hired Breitbart News Network executive chairman Steve Bannon as campaign CEO.

No Excuses: Google Just Made Voting a Little Easier

wired.com — For many Americans, the path to casting a vote is way rockier than it should be. Between ( racist) new voter ID laws and government websites that haven't been updated since the late Cretaceous, it hard to know how to register, where and when to vote, and what you need to bring.

Trump and Thiel Really Don’t Get How the First Amendment Works

wired.com — It's just the beginning of the week, and already a major presidential candidate and his staunchest ally in Silicon Valley have shown they have a fundamental misunderstanding of how the First Amendment works.
