As one of the very first digital media organizations, HuffPost pioneered a journalism of listening through its vast contributor network. It covered the world with verve and wit, connecting in deep and personal ways with its vast audience. As we launch a brand-new name and look for HuffPost, I've been thinking a lot about these questions. How can we become better listeners? How can we serve you, our audience, better? We're doubling down on our bold, splashy style, and serving up the news with a sense of humor, outrage and empathy. We're also taking the suggestion of our audience across the globe and formally adopting the shorter name they've called us for years: HuffPost.

Donald Trump. The narcissist with tissue paper thin skin who cannot abide any criticism whatsoever, from anyone, ever. The addict for whom there is never enough praise and adulation, who needs it so badly he cannot stop asking for compliments or, if they're slow in coming, telling the world, himself, how great he is.

Remember Donald Trump's campaign speeches when he was the Republican presidential candidate? All those promises he made? How his supporters lapped it all up? How loudly they cheered? How madly they waved their placards and signs? How riled up they got?
Yes, social media and the web have allowed us to too-conveniently block any news or facts we disagree with, while also flooding us with enough of the opposite. But here's the thing... we've always had this ability. We've always been tricked and pulled and tweezed like this.

While perhaps not as famous as its coffee or penchant for precipitation, Seattle's uncanny canine distinction makes it an ideal place to visit with your dog.
