Trump’s Campaign Is Launching a Nightly News Show on Facebook — Welcome to the Donald Trump show! Tonight, the Trump campaign is kicking off a show that will air on the candidate's Facebook page every night at 6:30pm ET via Facebook Live from the campaign war room at Trump Tower.

In Nevada, Latino Groups Are Finding the Voters Data Can’t — Daniel Zamora says that Donald Trump's presidential campaign reminds him of the movie , and no, not because he thinks it's frightening. It's because in the first Saw, the film starts with the main character shackled to a pipe in a bathtub that's steadily draining.

With One Tweet, Trump Could Sabotage the Presidential Election — This election cycle has seen so many terrifying moments-the violent Trump rally in Chicago, the recent firebombing of a Republican field office in North Carolina, the Russian-sponsored hack of the Democratic National Committee. But none of these is quite as scary as the fact that during the third and final debate Wednesday night, Donald Trump refused to say whether he would accept the results of November's election.

America’s Past and Future Do Battle in an Unlikely Tech Incubator — There are about 20 startups that call this tech incubator home. On any given afternoon, you can walk through these lime-green halls, past a life-sized Darth Vader cutout and a sign that reads, "Stop Tweeting Boring Shit" to see them at work.

Data Reveals the American Dream Is Alive and Well-in Canada — If Donald Trump is to be believed, the so-called American dream-the one where you can start at the bottom of life's proverbial ladder and wind up at the top- is dead. But take a closer look at the data: the story's much more nuanced than that.

President Obama on Government's Tech Deficit: Filing Taxes Should Be as Easy as Ordering a Pizza — The Situation Room is not as gee-whiz as you think it is. Take it from someone who knows: President Obama. "I always imagined the Situation Room would be this super cool thing, it'd be like Tom Cruise in The Minority Report," Obama, the guest editor of WIRED's November issue, said during a lengthy interview with Joi Ito of MIT's Media Lab and Editor-in-Chief Scott Dadich.

What a Hashtag Can Tell Us About Early Voting in Ohio — Twitter is by no means an exact measure of actual political support. If it were, well, trolls would be ruling the world-that is, more than they already are. But it's hard to ignore the surprising enthusiasm gap between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the hashtag #OHVotesEarly, which started trending on Twitter this morning as early voting kicked off in Ohio.

YouTube Crushed TV in Total Debate Viewership — Conventional wisdom holds that whoever wins the presidential debate has a leg up in the race. But in the digital age, winning the online conversation about the debate matters just as much. Why? YouTube has the numbers to prove it. Sunday night's debate attracted 63 million TV viewers, a 20 percent decline from the first.

Here’s What Voters At the Debate Think About Trump’s Hot Mic Debacle — The Great UnTrumping of 2016 is well underway. Throughout the weekend, a steady stream of Republican leaders, from Sen. John McCain to former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, renounced Donald Trump for comments he made on tape to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush back in 2005, in which Trump said he could grab women "by the pussy" with no repercussions, because, when you're famous "you can do anything."

Hey, Mike Pence: Implicit bias isn't racism, and everyone has it — Governor Mike Pence hasn't always seen eye to eye with scientific consensus. He has argued that smoking doesn't kill, written that global warming is a myth, and advocated for public funding of conversion therapy programs for LGBT people. Now, Pence is in trouble with another subset of the scientific community-psychologists.
