December 10th, 2017

Yeah, this is a little early, who knows what the president will do in the next 20 days? Still, The Intercept saw fit to publish 20 Intercept Stories From 2017 That Show the Kind of Year It’s Been. Maybe everyone’s going on holiday and they wanted to get this out the portal before the office party.

The editors write:

War crimes, government spying, climate chaos, white nationalism in the White House — if 2017 brought unwelcome developments in the world, it gave The Intercept plenty to write about with urgency and outrage.
