“We decisively condemn all attacks against civilians,” says Russian Amb. to the EU Vladimir Chizhov. “It is high time for the international community – in the form of the Quartet [on the Middle East] and the Security Council… to play a more decisive role in this.” @RusMission_EU 

“Hollywood forgot me,” says Matthew@McConaughey , after he made the decision to walk away from rom-coms. “I didn’t work for over two years,” he tells me, and “I found some anonymity again. I had unbranded.”

“If Hamas were to disappear Palestinians would still remain under subjugation and oppression” argues @4noura . “Even if everything today were to stop & there were an end to escalation, Palestinians would still be enduring violence. Children would still not be able to live freely.”

“I’m encouraging Liz [Cheney] to run for President,” says former GOP Congressman@RepRooney , because “what we have now is a gross deficit of leadership… All we can do is have people who believe that the cult of personality is wrong.”

Matthew @McConaughey  is all about values, he tells me – especially now he’s a parent. “What things can I build? What kind of man can I be now, that will live on through my children, long after me, and hopefully generations after them?”


A reflection on President Trump’s comments last night: The last President I covered who refused to accept the vote count in an election was Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran, 2009.

Houston Police Chief@ArtAcevedo : “Let me just say this to the President of the United States, on behalf of the police chiefs of this country: please, if you don’t have something constructive to say, keep your mouth shut.”

CNN crew has been released. Governor has apologized. For the record: arresting journalists is the kind of thing that happens in dictatorships and authoritarian regimes. We live in a democracy.

@falzthebahdguy  is part of Nigeria's #EndSars  protests. Is he afraid for his life? He says no. "We have a seriously high level of poverty, there’s unemployment. We’re in a critical state because of how much corruption… we continue to see… What kind of life am I living anyway?”

“Journalism in India is on a ventilator,” argues @RanaAyyub . “Why is Modi not being asked the tough questions on the front page of our newspapers?” #WorldPressFreedomDay 

No Mr President, we at CNN are not "dumb bastards" for covering Covid. Listen to why we do. h/t @brikeilarcnn
