How much of you fully belongs to you… and how much belongs to everyone’s expectations of you? I think I know what my answer should be now… and that answer is so different from what was always the case. Been thinking about this. A lot.

Happy belated birthday (Oct 20, 1951)! According to @CBSNews: “Creative director Bill Golden… was inspired when he drove through Pennsylvania Dutch country… intrigued by the hex symbols resembling the human eye that are drawn on Shaker barns to ward off evil spirits.”

One of the most recognizable logos in America was first seen 70 years ago today in 1951 when @CBS Television unveiled its iconic eye.

More info: Sec. Powell had multiple myeloma, a kind of white blood cell cancer. Follow @NBCNews for updates, but at the moment it’s unclear exactly what COVID complications he had or when he tested positive. Also unclear when he was vaccinated or if he had a booster shot.

Shrewd concept! If I may suggest: reporting, repeating... and REPAIRING. Smart discussion can bridge our cultural divides. Public media does this. Talk shows used to do this. My new show will aim to do it too, b/c we desperately need to hear each other & be heard right now.

CNN's @brianstelter on how to restore trust in the mass media: "If there's a solution to this — and I don't know if there is, because we live in one America and two media worlds. But if there is a solution, it's through reporting, it's through reporting, not repeating."

Every show I've done has involved a kind of coming out. I have to decide what to share w/the public, when to share it & how to say it. TBH it can still make me pretty anxious. Coming out is both pivotal & perpetual: it doesn't always get easier, but it definitely gets better.

An important reminder for #ComingOutDay: You're 100% valid no matter where you're at in your coming out journey (if you choose to come out or not; whether it's safe to come out or not; whether you're out to just yourself or others) 🧡💜💛❤️

I’m getting used to NYC, but it still feels very alien to me. California felt like home. I miss it, especially my chosen family there. Curious: where do you feel the most at home? Who (if anyone) are you with there, what do you do there, and when did it become like home to you?

With all the talk around social media lately, I worry about how much more help the next generation needs to stand strong. Are we encouraging today's young adults to stand? Or merely to pose?

FASCINATING: according to @Reuters, the pro-Trump network OAN is largely insulated from advertiser threats because it support from AT&T runs deep. Not only that, creating the network was reportedly @ATT's idea! Interesting investigation by Reuters:

So… Facebook. Do you use it? If so, how are you feeling these days about using it? And are the recent revelations by whistleblower Frances Haugen affecting your view of Facebook?

If I was on-air now, I'd probably want to talk more about this tomorrow. If you watch this piece, tell me what questions/topics you'd want us to explore if this was on the rundown for Monday's (hypothetical) show. Or perhaps the report touches on something that's happened to you.

“There were conflicts of interest between what was good for the public and what was good for Facebook. And Facebook, over and over again, chose to optimize for its own interests, like making more money,” says Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen.

Don’t know what it’s like where you are, but restaurant takeout & delivery has taken a DROP in quality… like, dramatically. Maybe 2 of my last 10 orders have been solid. Is this just a New York problem, or are you noticing that where you are, too?
