Political polarisation leads to self-righteousness, and that leads to evil…
Trump hasn't just won the presidency - he's taken control of America's instruments of government.
People are using Andrew Sullivan's decision to quit blogging as yet another excuse to declare blogging dead.
It's the end of an era as pioneering blogger Andrew Sullivan announces that he's hanging up his keyboard.

People still use this anti-blogger insult in 2013? Really?
People's relationship to brands changes online - and publishers need to understand that.
Andrew Sullivan and his blog, The Dish, have been a huge influence on me throughout my time as a blogger (closing in on ten years, unbelievably). Big Think have an extensive video interview (and transcript of it) with him, during which he muses on blogging, politics, homosexuality and religion. Well worth 40 minutes of you time.

But it’s worth noting that, according to Quantcast, the Beast’s traffic in terms of page views is now 39 million a month, compared with the Atlantic’s 15 million. The month before the Dish moved, it was 27 million pageviews for the Beast vs 21 million for the Atlantic. The gap in pageviews between the two sites has gone in one month from 6 million to 24 million. Since ads are sold on pageviews, that has got to mean something long-term. Quite what I don’t really know.
I’m sure you can come up with one or two suggestions…
