Yesterday the New Yorker published a really long but fascinating (and at times heartbreaking) article by Jill Lepore called Baby Doe, which begins with an examination of the dead toddler girl whose body washed up in Boston Harbor last year and widens into a discussion of one of the major culprits of child abuse—poverty—and how kids in the system would be better served by the government changing its focus to better address this fact. I recommend reading the article in pieces because it’s a lot to take in. The second article, written by Matthew Broomfield, was published by Motherboard and is called YouTube Personalities Use ‘Minecraft’ to Prey on Underage Fans. The title of that one is pretty self-explanatory. Both of these articles are well worth your time, especially Lepore’s.
