This piece was originally published in May and has been lightly updated. As of December, 15 states (and Washington, DC and Puerto Rico) have official targets to get at least 50 percent of their electricity from clean sources.

Trump’s “Salute to America” speech wasn’t as bad as some feared. But it was still weird.

Trump’s “Salute to America” speech wasn’t as bad as some feared. But it was...

If you were worried President Donald Trump would use his July 4 “Salute to America” event as an opportunity to blast Democrats or the FBI in front of the Lincoln Memorial, you can rest easy. During the rain-soaked event, Trump avoided partisan politics, and instead focused on glorifying the US military — occasionally in completely…

Sunday night during the Grammys, awards were handed out. But during the commercial breaks, Wiz Khalifa ate Oreos with his son, Serena Williams drove a fancy car, and Ariana Grande’s disembodied head sang “7 rings,” the song that Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich supposedly barred her from performing onstage, in a new commercial for Apple’s Memoji…

Why Melania’s response to Trump’s alleged affairs was so weird

There’s a script in American politics for the wife of a powerful man. If he’s accused of infidelity or sexual misconduct, she stands beside him at the press conference, looking somber but supportive.

Netflix’s Maniac, with Jonah Hill and Emma Stone, is either too weird or not weird enough

Netflix’s Maniac, with Jonah Hill and Emma Stone, is either too weird or not...

Maniac, a new, darkly comic Netflix miniseries starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, is the rare project that I like both more and less the longer I think about it. By the time it reaches the midpoint of its 10 episodes, the series is one of the more confident and assured examples of what I…
