In an editorial for the Washington Post, Republican Senator Susan Collins has detailed why she refuses to vote for nominee and self-tanner soaked whoopee cushion Donald Trump.
We have seen our fair share of bad takes this election cycle—we’ve seen the personal essay (ie. “Why the Feminist Vote Is a Vote for Jeb”), the unexpected turn (ie. “You Might Think Hillary Is a Woman—Here’s Why She Isn’t”), the outrage-bait garbage (ie. “A Liberal Case for Donald Trump”) (that one’s real).
On Wednesday, a Palo Alto jury found ex-Stanford student Brock Turner guilty of sexual assault against a fellow student. Turner, now 20, was a member of the university swim team. And we know what that means: it’s time for someone to write a story about his “once-promising future.”

A new poll done by the Washington Post and Kaiser Family Foundation backs the oft-quoted—and lately, often disputed—Justice Department statistic that one in five college women are sexually assaulted. The poll surveyed 1,000 people who attended college in the last four years and found that twenty percent said they were…
Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, chose to make a pretty stupendous birth announcement today, via a big story in the Washington Post.

The Washington Post published a bizarre op-ed from writer/director/actor/natural brunette James Franco today. It’s about McDonald’s.
