Convention Coverage by Laurie Penny


If you haven’t read any of Laurie Penny’s coverage of the recent conventions on, you’re missing out. This is stellar journalism, straight from the floors of Cleveland and Philly–at times scathing and hilarious, sometimes depressing, and terrifying, even, with a splash of gonzo to keep things genuine. Penny chronicles the surreal atmosphere of both conventions, and offers up her insight as a foreigner watching from the sidelines, and the results stand as testament to effective reporting. Check out these three stories from the conventions:
