A disappointed reader just sent me a email because, in the newsletter, "the hit on Barron Trump wasn't the top news story of the day you shill." No, it was not the top story of the day.

USA Today's Hidden Common Ground initiative will launch on Thursday... an Ipsos survey finds that "across partisan lines, an overwhelming 92% say it is important to reduce divisiveness in America..."

"More than 4 in 10 respondents who say they predominantly watch Fox News say that Ukraine DID interfere in the 2016 election, a higher share than among respondents who get their news from other networks..."

Pelosi: "Today, I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment."

Participants "appeared to have little idea why they were seeing certain news stories" in their feeds. They often "failed to distinguish between material posted by established news outlets and obscure Facebook groups."

"If everything people that people are seeing is via social media – who is accountable? There is very little human intelligence or decision-making behind it, no attempt to give a balanced view. That seems to leave all responsibility on the reader."

>> @jasongay : "'The Irishman' may be a portrait of a time gone by, but 'The Irishman' on a phone is a perfect distillation of our overly harried modern lives, where technology is often a curse, but also, occasionally, a convenient blessing."

Very clever, using a picture of me for a story about prime time ratings, and getting @BretBaier  to like it. Good for you.

CNN obtained a tape of Trump at a closed-door fundraiser. He said this about China's president: "He's now president for life. President for life. And he's great. And look, he was able to do that. I think it's great. Maybe we'll give that a shot some day."

It happened! tried to avoid 's follow-up questions by calling on The Hill's . But Fabian deferred to Jackson, so she could follow up. So many viewers have wanted to see this happen... unity... and today it did.

Over at @TheOnion , they just publish this story over and over

Anderson: "There's a good chance the president is watching this interview or will watch this interview. What is your message to the president?" @mPinoe  paused, thought about it, then looked straight into the camera and said this.

Bill Moyers says that he fears for the U.S. "for the first time in my long life." "A democracy can die of too many lies. And we're getting close to that terminal moment unless we reverse the obsession with lies that are being fed around the country."

CNN statement responding to the president: "We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his."
