It showed viewers how Infowars grew and sustains itself by peddling right-wing merchandise and Jones-endorsed dietary supplements. It looked briefly back at Jones's early days as just another cable-access kook in Austin, and revealed the flimsy, almost nonexistent definition of "research" (articles he and his staff find online) that sets the Infowars agenda. The interview is here. Frankly: meh.

Amazon's move signals end of line for many cashiers. Our mental image of job-killing automation is robots in factories or warehouses.

And then there's Just in time, Amazon patents method to prevent in-store comparison shopping. It may block access to the competitor's site, preventing customers from viewing comparable products from rivals. It might redirect the customer to Amazon's own site or to other, Amazon-approved sites. It might notify an Amazon salesperson to approach the customer. Or it might send the customer's smartphone a text message, coupon or other information designed to lure the person back into Amazon's orbit.

Trump Dump:
(As of midnight...)

Trump retains assets worth at least $1.4 billion, new disclosure shows.

Who in the White House will turn against Donald Trump? Veteran Washington reporters... have never observed this kind of anxiety, regret, and sense of imminent personal doom among White House staffers- not to this degree, anyway. These troubled aides seem to think that they can help their own standing by turning on those around them- and that by retailing information anonymously they will be able to live with themselves after serving a President who has proved so disconnected from the truth and reality.

Why Republicans won't work for the Trump administration.

Six people have resigned from Trump's HIV/AIDS advisory council because he "doesn't care".

Trump lawyer insists there is no obstruction investigation- but then hedges.

Russia renewed unused Trump trademarks in 2016.

Trump's planned EPA cuts will hit America's most vulnerable.

CEOs to Trump: You're failing.

A pro-Trump group is using Obama's voice out of context in radio ad for Georgia's special election.

Best Trump-Russia scandal jokes (so far).
