I highly recommend the #Demented podcast for the millions of us trying to navigate how to take care of our parents. Told with heart and humor by my @npr colleague @RadioKitty. 🎧 https://t.co/xDZPDbrRsD

I've been a proud @sagaftra member for 36 years. And I'm awed by what our @NPR union team accomplished with this new contract. 🧵 #wemakenpr https://t.co/tkVI41Pjx7

“I have daughters, granddaughters and nieces. I believe abortion is an essential part of health care. I have spent the past 50 years treating and helping patients. I can’t just sit back and watch us return to 1972.” https://t.co/jmK7m7pQqJ

A colleague on the set of "Rust" was so alarmed by prop gun misfires that happened earlier in the week, he sent a text message to the unit production manager: “We’ve now had 3 accidental discharges. This is super unsafe." https://t.co/mE2Xmcg9kx

The question will be whether a single member of the SCOTUS 5-4 majority who denied the providers' request for a stay will see this as different. The chaos that has ensued should weigh heavily on their minds and consciences. https://t.co/RunBcJl7j5

They should teach this in J school. A lot of media organizations are far too quick to issue “clarifications” that are scripted by threatening lawyers hired by billionaires to bully the press. This is another approach, by @jaketapper. Well played. https://t.co/71fx0N1kDD

Hillary Clinton on the View talking about the double standard with men and women in politics when it comes to appearances (it is a thing no matter the party!), says she calculated the hours she had to take doing hair and makeup during the 2016 campaign and it added up to 25 days.

When you study racism as long as I have, little can be truly shocking, but my God, this was just breathtaking and heartbreaking and shows once again how little so many in this society acknowledge the basic humanity of Black children. It's also why investigative reporting MATTERS. https://t.co/u7u2TMqOhm
