retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Got the following email from an MNB reader:

Kudos on the new MNB politics desk. It's getting increasingly harder and harder in our society to consume any news or information without it having some sort of political bent or implication. Putting all the political commentary in one section helps. For the days that I am sick of politics and can't look at one more pro-Trump/anti-Trump or conservative/liberal piece of news, I appreciate that I can skip politics completely, and MNB can serve as sort of a refuge from the din of political nonsense.

Yes, well, I'm going to do my best. But the simple reality these days is that business and politics are intersecting more than ever before, and so it is hard to avoid these stories.

And I'm not sure we should.
