Actually, I watched the debate. I posted some witty tweets about it. I’ve read recaps of it, dinging Tim Kaine’s frenetic interruptions and Mike Pence’s stoic non-defense-defense of Donald Trump. But today I saw an Instagram post from a local NPR affiliate promoting its vice-presidential debate bingo card.

I saw this 16 hours after the fact because Instagram has gotten rid of its chronological feed in favor of an algorithm that it says better serves its users.
