Opinion | The Trump News Show Is Over and We’re All Healthier For It

The causes behind the “great media crash” are self-evident. Last year was a campaign year, which always causes news consumption to spike. It was also the last year — barring his reelection in 2024 — of President Donald Trump. Trump was a one-man perpetual news machine, forever feeding reporters high-calorie, low-nutrition tidbits and serving dumpsters of coverable commotion, some of which was forgotten the day after it was reported. Remember when the White House promoted Melania Trump’s jewelry line or when Kellyanne Conway hyped Ivanka Trump’s clothing line? Sometimes he would uncork two or three mini-scandals a day. The press

‘Good Girls’: What’s the Real Reason NBC Cancelled the Show?

In late May, word began circulating that NBC had unofficially signed off on a plan to renew bubble dramedy Good Girls for a shortened fifth and final season, one that would give fans something that has become increasingly elusive in the broadcast-TV landscape: closure.

Production was tentatively set to begin in Spring 2022. It was, for all intents and purposes, a done deal.

And yet, one month later, Good Girls

On the second-floor exhibition space of Jerusalem’s HaMiffal, dozens of opening night visitors were glued to the projection of intricate ladders, fans and chairs crawling across the wall, loop after loop. For those responsible for the space, the moment was equally enchanting — because it wouldn’t have been possible just a year ago.

Five years ago, the original HaMiffal collective transitioned from temporary installations into a single residence. Its organizers took an abandoned, dilapidated 19th-century building a stone’s throw away from the luxurious Waldorf Astoria Hotel, and transformed it into a shared space for art and cultural events. Perhaps riffing
