Description

Between the government shutdowns that bookended the year, there were furious standoffs over a border wall; shootings at a high school, a bar, a grocery store, a synagogue; devastating wildfires in California.

Questions about a murdered journalist, about election interference, about how much Facebook knew. A midterm vote that delivered one of the most diverse — and divided — governments in American history. Here’s what 2018 sounded like.

Thank you to the NYT teams who are keeping these issues in our sight. Do not let the purposeful diversion of our national attention succeed. Keep the entire list on the front pages, from beginning to end, so that not one thing will be forgotten by one person.
