Editor’s Note: After a spirited internal debate, the Nightshift team decided that in order to provide appropriate coverage for things other than the current U.S. Political scene (i.e. “the hot mess in Washington”), we would trim down the amount of commentary and coverage on U.S. political events to a very modest length and let you go directly to the world’s great newspapers for more depth and comment on the world’s news. That is, after all, the idea for this type of site–get the world’s perspective on events, not just an American one. The re-focusing will also free up time and resources to cover other things: major sporting events, art, entertainment, etc. And it will enable the team to broaden the editorial reach and continue with certain experimental editorial/communication initiatives. Enjoy the break–it should be refreshing. And if not…..we’ll change back.
