Fun Fact

On average, Twitter users spend 21 minutes monthly on Twitter.

I binge-watched some Watergate hearings, 1973-style, as a preview of impeachment TV to come and a glimpse at a mass-media era that's long gone.

given all the talk about whistle-blowers right now, i reached out to @wbaidlaw to talk about whether its possible to be anonymous in 2019, how they protect whistle-blowers' privacy and who might be at risk of being a target https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/12/opinion/whistleblower.html …

On college journo lapses: I was EIC when Nelson Mandela came to campus and we ran a story calling him an African-American freedom fighter. (I didn’t make the error but didn’t catch it; also ffs I’m South African.)

the gen z journos have an instict to care about historically marginalized communities and rethink power dynamics and it is playing out in a raw and uninformed way. hardly seems like the end of the world but then again the only club i joined in undergrad was ultimate frisbee

6yo keeps singing “I hate daddy, he is the worst, I hate daddy, he is the worst” but assures me I shouldn’t take it personally because it’s about a kid named daddy in her school

Another point about this amazing Trump Jr. shitshow at UCLA: The protesters that got the event shut down were neo-Nazis. I suspect on reason the organizers didn’t want a Q&A was that it would expose how many neo-Nazis Trump attracts.

If Warren’s wealth tax were in effect since 1982 Bill Gates would have had $13.9 billion in 2018 instead of $97 billion Bezos would have had $48.8 billion last year instead of $160 billion Bloomberg would have had $12.3 billion instead of $51.8 billion

My biggest takeaway from a lot of the billionaire talk is yall really don’t understand what a BILLION dollars is b/c people keep talking about it like it’s 100,000 or 1 million when it’s 1000millions.

Time is my fave comparison that puts it into perspective! A million seconds is 12 days. A billion seconds is 31.7 years.

Peak California liberalism is painting a mural honoring a 16 year-old climate activist within a year of her rise to prominence while spending the last 20 years refusing to build the dense multifamily housing we need to actually reduce our impact on the environment.

Finishing “The Republic For Which It Stands,” which is both 1) great history and 2) proof that anyone who says “we’ve never been so divided” should stop talking about politics and take up water polo or something.
