TWEETS OF NOTE

  • (@SalenaZito) I grow weary of saying we have to be better people, journalists & culture. In particular on this platform. How many people’s lives & reputations are we going to allow be destroyed until we stop? Or do we just wait & hope it misses us? Newsflash it won’t. Tweet.
  • (@ToryAnarchist) It still amazes me that the Covington media debacle was barely a day after the Buzzfeed media debacle, the most explicit proof possible that no lessons were learned about bias and credulity. Tweet.
