“This is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in my life.” For 50 years, some of the greatest, most intimate footage of The Beatles went unseen. Now Peter Jackson has dug through the archives to bring it to the world in #TheBeatlesGetBack , which releases this week on @disneyplus

@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?”

The UK PM @BorisJohnson  is in hot water after being pictured unmasked next to 95 year-old David Attenborough. I asked him for his response:

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