Who Wrote the Anti-Trump New York Times Op-Ed? Using Tidytext (rstat)

Like a lot of people, I was intrigued by “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration”, an anonymous New York Times op-ed written by a “senior official in the Trump administration”. And like many data scientists, I was curious about what role text mining could play.

This is a useful opportunity to demonstrate how to use the tidytext package that Julia Silge and I developed, and in particular to apply three methods:

Using TF-IDF to find words specific to each document (examined in more detail in Chapter 3 of our book)
Using widyr to compute pairwise cosine similarity
How to make similarity interpretable by breaking it down by word
Since my goal is R education more than it is political analysis, I show all the code in the post.

Even in the less than 24 hours since the article was posted, I’m far from the first to run text analysis on

Google Slammed Over Chrome Change That Strips ‘www’ From Domain URLs

An anonymous reader quotes ITWire:
Google’s move to strip out the www in domains typed into the address bar, beginning with version 69 of its Chrome browser, has drawn an enormous amount of criticism from developers who see the move as a bid to cement the company’s dominance of the Web. The criticism comes a few days after Chrome’s engineering manager Adrienne Porter Felt told the American website Wired that URLs need to be got rid of altogether. The change in Chrome version 69 means that if one types in a domain such as into the browser search bar, the www portion is stripped out in the address bar when the page is displayed.
When asked about this change in a long discussion thread on a mailing list, a Google staffer wrote: “www is now considered a ‘trivial’ subdomain, and hiding trivial subdomains can be disabled in flags (will also

Brute Force Incognito Browsing

September 06, 2018

Both Firefox and Chrome have a feature for creating temporary private
browsing sessions. Firefox calls it Private Browsing and Chrome
calls it Incognito Mode. Both work essentially the same way. A
temporary browsing session is started without carrying over most
existing session state (cookies, etc.), and no state (cookies,
browsing history, cached data, etc.) is preserved after ending the
session. Depending on the configuration, some browser extensions will
be enabled in the private session, and their own internal state may be

The most obvious use is for visiting websites that you don’t want
listed in your browsing history. Another use for more savvy users is
to visit websites with a fresh, empty cookie file. For example, some
news websites use a cookie to track the number visits and require a
subscription after a certain number of “free” articles. Manually
deleting cookies is a pain (especially without a specialized
extension), but opening the same article in a private
