- Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill, and Laura Poitras are teaming up to form a new media entity, funded by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. This means Greenwald, who broke the NSA/Snowden stories with Poitras earlier this year, will be leaving The Guardian. The news was, ironically, leaked early.
- The beauty of Kirk Gibson’s home run, and an analysis of its two amazing calls. And on the topic of Oakland, Tim Keown’s excellent “Death of a Sports Town.”
- What’s Anthony Weiner up to now that his mayoral campaign is over? Plus, is this the future of the NYC subway?
- Mike Myers is expecting a baby. Yeah, you’re not the first one to make the joke.
