Kevin Roose, a technology writer for the New York Times, made a front-page splash on Sunday with “The Making of a YouTube Radical – How the Site’s Algorithms Played Into the Hands of the Far Right.” A caption underneath a photo of the story’s subject: “Caleb Cain likens the far right on YouTube to a “decentralized cult.”

A buddy on the east coast just sent this to me.

They put the “Making Of A Youtube Radical” collage on the front page of the Sunday edition of the @nytimes.

I’m gonna ditch the Internet today. See you Monday.
