Public People make news more effective at supporting accountability and democracy. It does this by showing news about a person of political or civic interest in reverse chronological order. Presenting historical articles in this way helps you find articles that you might not otherwise find easily; it lets you see how the conversation about someone changes over time, and it lets you see how one publication differs from another in angle on the same story.
