iPhone : Whereas the Russia investigation unfolded as a drip, drip, drip... the impact of this news story is much more BOOM!

iPhone : May I suggest a reporter’s or news editor’s job should be to frame the story as the facts dictate - instead of letting those in power frame it as they wish. That’s more the job of a stenographer.

iPhone : Humans are good at breaking things, but also have an ability to fix things too. Where there's a will there's a Clean Water and Clean Air Act, repairing the ozone, bringing back bison from extinction. The climate crisis is daunting; all the more need for human action and resolve.

Twitter Web App : Every elected official should be put on the record on these allegations around President Trump extorting the Ukrainian government for his reelection. If an official doesn’t answer, ask again, and keep asking until they answer... or walk away.

Twitter Web App : A president turning to a foreign leader to keep himself in power was a central fear of the Founding Fathers. The question of the moment is whether GOP officials share that fear, At a minimum this must be investigated with no interference. wsj.com/articles/trump…

Twitter Web App : Sometimes the politics around issues change rapidly. I saw it with Vietnam, civil rights, and gay marriage. And I have a reporter's hunch the Climate Crisis could surprise in 2020 as more people are "mugged by reality" (an apt phrase I first heard from George Shultz).

iPhone : I think future generations may look back and consider denial and a failure to act on the climate crisis to be an impeachable offense. It is a threat to the health and security of our country, let alone the planet, as assuradly as a military force gathering on our borders.

iPhone : Join me with Dan Rather and photojournalist Lucian Read next Monday in New York City for the release of “All Of Which I Saw”—a harrowing and important firsthand account of some of the most critical moments of the Iraq war. facebook.com/events/5268263…

Twitter Web App : Syuzhet Utolshchayetsya
"the plot thickens" in Russian (according to Google)
Or possibly more apropos, in Ukrainian:
Syuzhet Potovshchuyetʹsya

Twitter Web App : A particularly insightful analysis of the broader context around the gun debate... nytimes.com/2019/09/18/opi…

Twitter Web App : To see birds take flight is to marvel at nature in action, but these living descendants of dinosaurs are on the brink of collapse. They are collective canaries in the coal mine of a planet made sick by shrinking open space and rising pollution. nytimes.com/2019/09/19/sci…

iPhone : Last 30 days brought over 200,000 new Auschwitz Memorial followers, 1,02 million profile visits & 43,3 million impressions.

You all make it happen. Thank you for helping us educate the world about the history of Auschwitz.

We need to #Remember. Together. twitter.com/auschwitzmuseu…

Twitter Web App : President Trump appears far more concerned about defending the United States against dangerous California than Putin’s Russia or North Korea.

iPhone : A big scoop: “Trump’s interaction with the foreign leader included a “promise” that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint...” washingtonpost.com/national-secur…

Twitter Web App : In watching Corey Lewandowski's testimony in front of Congress, I thought about what my late mother would have done to me if I had acted like that... oh, and the fact that there must be a lot to hide.

Twitter Web App : News that the Trump administration will strip California of its ability to set higher emissions standards makes me sick. But the bigger question is what it will mean for the health of millions of people... not to mention our planet.

Twitter Web App : 17 September 1943 | Stella Agsterribe, a Dutch Jewish athlete, a gold Olympic medal winner in 1928 with the Dutch gymnastics team, was murdered in #Auschwitz together with her husband Samuel Blits and their six-year-old daughter Nanny and their two-year-old son Alfred.

Twitter Web App : Cokie Roberts embodied a potent mix of professionalism, toughness, and grace. Her passing is a loss for journalism and the world at large. May she Rest in Peace.
