The New York Times Magazine publishes articles on a wide range of topics; stand-out subjects include domestic and international politics, and racial issues. The magazine also runs frequent feature stories covering technology, sports and popular culture.
Articles about national politics abound in The NYT magazine. For instance, "Re-Re-Re-Reintroducing Hillary Clinton" examines the former First Lady's presidential campaign, while "Has the ‘Libertarian Moment’ Finally Arrived?" wonders about Rand Paul and his party. International politics also figure prominently, as demonstrated by "Trudeau’s Canada, Again," about the prime minister following in his father's footsteps, and "Hong Kong’s Umbrella Revolution Isn't Over Yet," about young people demanding democracy.
Reports on race are often front and center. "White Debt" investigates racial privilege; "A Dream Undone" exposes attempts to undermine civil rights progress; and "‘The Condition of Black Life Is One of Mourning’" discusses the deeper implications of the Charleston church shootings.
The magazine also examines tech-related topics. "The Serial Swatter" delves into the Internet's trolling subculture, "All Is Fair in Love and Twitter" investigates the site's questionable history, and "The Secret Life of Passwords" explores the significance of computer users' security codes.
Sports stories have included coverage of sibling tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams, basketball great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and the controversy surrounding compensation for collegiate sports.
