Author and law professor Tim Wu says much of the "free" content on the web comes at a price to users, who are subjected to ads that are targeted specifically at them and increasingly hard to ignore. His new book is ‘The Attention Merchants.’ Also, jazz critic Kevin Whitehead reviews Wadada Leo Smith’s album ‘America’s National Parks.’

No, Megyn Kelly Should Not Have Worn That Dress

“No, Megyn Kelly Should Not Have Worn That Dress”” on Inc. Magazine by Suzanne Lucas

“Now, does this mean that Kelly shouldn’t have challenged societal norms? It depends on what you think about this particular norm. Personally, I like the norm that spaghetti straps are an evening or beachwear choice. If Kelly wants to make it a news anchor norm, she can certainly work to do so, but she can’t do it without expecting some pushback. She can continue to wear spaghetti straps to work, encourage other female journalists to do the same, and eventually change the norm. If that’s what she wants, super-duper. If not, she should probably put on a sweater.”
