@Giliell I’m not talking about the content. I’m taking about the presentation mechanism: high-level summary points that open up.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Giliell

@Giliell @echidna_paw @washingtonpost Your point would seem to be that you don’t like what the report says, which is a different thing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Giliell

@Giliell @echidna_paw I’m referring purely to how @washingtonpost has structured the story to let you drill into the report’s key points.
