But most of all I am thankful for so many of you. I never knew I had so many friends until I got fired in April. So many of you supported me, signed petitions, advocated for our cause publicly and privately. I can’t thank you enough. /5
That support made all the difference during these stressful past few months when the team was working (ok, and doing a lot of eating) at my kitchen table. We are back at the office now and so thrilled to be back to work. THANK YOU

Last year I wrote about how Facebook let housing advertisers discriminate by race: Today: turns out Facebook didn’t fix it, despite its promises.
Roger Ailes once threatened me that he had the rest of his life to get back at me for an article I wrote. Looks like he ran out of time.
The deed is done. My inbox is dead. Don't email me at my ProPublica email address for now.
