Ben Bradlee Dead: Legendary Washington Post Editor Led Watergate Coverage

In a charmed life of newspapering, Ben Bradlee seemed always to be in just the right place. The raspy-voiced, hard-charging editor who invigorated The Washington Post got an early break as a journalist thanks to his friendship with one president, John F.

All The Wealth The Middle Class Accumulated After 1940 Is Gone

Here's more proof the middle class is dying. The middle-class share of American wealth has been shrinking for the better part of three decades and recently fell to its lowest level since 1940, according to a new study by economists Emmanuel Saez of the University of California, Berkeley, and Gabriel Zucman of the London School of Economics.

Why Black Women Are the Voting Bloc to Watch in the Midterms

Turnout is anticipated to be low for the upcoming November elections, and voter interest has been dropping since June; NBC’s political analysts have called it the “great American tune out.” But generalizing about an apathetic electorate ignores one key group of voters whose participation in recent years has been on the rise: black women.
