"So, what can I do? I wish I could counsel my 16-year-old self that the only simple answer is to form a relationship to the question, let it work on and with you, and begin to live life as a response. One answer and then another..." My latest in @TIME👇🏼

Taking a few months away from work to do some writing of my own. Coincidentally, Twitter tells me it's been nine years since I joined, so seems like a good time to take a break from here too. Back in September 🌟

There’s been a lot of speculation about GB News (hell I’ve written a fair bit of it) but this is probably most revealing thing I’ve read. Dubai-based investors Legatum explicitly stating they put millions into GB News for cultural reasons, not financial.

I've been to New York almost every year since I was 16, until the pandemic. Didn't realise how much I missed it till I saw this gorgeous, uplifting photo essay.

The @NPRCodeSwitch team spent a lot of time last summer talking about what the supposed racial reckoning would & wouldn't mean. Over the past year, it's been interesting to see which of our fears/hopes/cynical predictions have materialized.

BREAKING: This morning @propublica has what I consider the most important story we have ever published. It concerns a trove of secret IRS files we were given on the tax returns of the nation’s richest people. The findings are extraordinary.
