How CNN is ‘future-proofing’ itself

David Uberti, Columbia Journalism Review, October 13, 2016

On Wednesday, CNN launched a mobile app to curate a more personalized feed of business news.

Emily Singer, The Atlantic, August 29, 2016

Humans often make bad decisions. If you like Snickers more than Milky Way, it seems obvious which candy bar you'd pick, given a choice of the two.
