The selfie photos that off-duty officers took inside the Capitol during the siege were a wake-up call for many who have long denied the extent of ties to extremist groups. By @kimberlykindy @markberman @bellwak

Nothing says β€œI’m being muzzled” like a front-page feature in the fourth-largest newspaper in the country.

Replying to @alexburnsNYT: consistent feature of so many news corp platforms is people with enormous megaphones complaining about being silenced

More than a fist-bump: "We're hoping for a return to regular press briefings, not only with the press secretary and subject matter experts but also with the president," @zekejmiller says

Will we ever get back to the office?

CBS Sunday Morning report by Kelefa Sanneh

Quoted @ggreenwald

If you're in the national press and will be on TV at any point today and being to feel the need to weep joyously, just hold it in until you find a private place. Nobody is expecting any adversarial coverage over the next 4 years, but it's just a matter of personal dignity.

2. People are replying to the tweet above saying that Glenn Greenwald called for her to be fired.

I don't see any evidence of that.

Again, companies have to learn the difference between criticism and people calling for someone to lose their job.

Quoted @Carmen50

@yashar Conservatives: We believe in freedom of speech and no one should lose their job because of what they say.

Also conservatives: Fire her for saying that she has chills because it a plane Biden is on is landing.

I actually didn't see any conservatives calling for her to be let go?

This goes back to news orgs and other companies learning that people criticizing something doesn't mean they want the person fired.

Being critical doesn't mean you're calling for someone to lose their job.

In honor of the 10-year anniversary of @Adele’s β€˜21,’ tell us your favorite song from the record-breaking album! πŸ’Ώ

The whole album is all hits and no skips...

But "He Won't Go" is the song that stays with me most.

How many of you have this phrase stuck in your head

"My name is Cecilia and I live on Svalbard an island close to the north pole."

@yashar Do hippos attack elephants?

Not as a rule but hippos are very territorial and will attack virtually anything that is in their territory...

Quoted @POTUS

Can confirm it’s chocolate chip.

Can the Senate handle two impeachment trials at the same time?

Quoted @GrahamAllen_1

@POTUS Shouldn’t you be working instead of killing American jobs along with the economy?

My dude if you think he tweeted this himself...lol

See the baby elephant?

Notice how the matriarch in front (with the longer tusks) sees that the hippos are getting close.

She lets out a low rumble and the herd quickly forms a protective circle around the baby.

An elephant herd's #1 priority is protecting the babies.

Please don’t cancel your subscriptions to @nytimes! It is an incredible paper filled with talented journalists. We need them and we need a thriving free press. Thank you!

4. I see a lot of people pushing for Lauren Wolfe to be re-hired

Multiple sources have told me this is not going to happen. They do not intend on offering her a new contract (her deal was close to ending)

But Wolfe is asking people to keep their NYT subs

Federal law enforcement officials are examining a number of threats aimed at members of Congress as the second trial of former President Donald Trump nears, including ominous chatter about killing legislators or attacking them outside of the U.S. Capitol

Quoted @maggieNYT

Sarah Sanders is set to announce for Arkansas governor in a video going up tomorrow morning, a person familiar with the plan says, confirming @jdawsey1.

Only the second former White House press secretary to run for statewide office. Pierre Salinger was the first and he lost his US Senate bid from California to George Murphy in 1964 as an appointed incumbent.

I’ve hesitated directly sharing this β€” outside of a couple RTs β€” because that’s how I’ve handled it when I’ve been on lists in the past.

But I just remembered that kids in elementary school would make fun of me for having a Time Magazine in my backpack
