MANCHESTER, N.H. — Sen. Bernie Sanders on Sunday addressed the phenomenon of the Bernie Bros, denouncing the sexist behavior the group employs on social media.

Australian mom Kortni McLady isn’t “Sorry” about her pregnant performance of Bieber’s hit

“We’re five weeks away, five weeks from the New Hampshire primary. I’m really, really flattered that I’ve been in your top three, but enough people, OK?” Christie implored the standing-room only crowd. “I am not…

Such is the case for Salon political staff writer Benjamin Norton in his coverage of the arrest of the alleged Houston mosque arsonist. Before posting (and deleting) a story that turned out to be completely false, Norton had chastised the media for jumping to conclusions a little over two weeks ago.
