NEW: Records reviewed by the @nytimes  show people who work for @facebook , @amazon , @Google  & @Apple  are advising @JoeBiden 's campaign on tech policy. The left is concerned BIDEN will embrace Big Tech like OBAMA, & won't back @elizabethforma 's push to break it up

THE 1970s NEWSROOM: Editors at The @JournalInquirer  hit on young reporters & drank "lots of crappy beer," per @hankgilman 's 2011 management book. A photo editor sent a memo reading: "Effective immediately, the photo staff will no longer refer to the photo editor as 'dickhead.'"

Why do 82% of white evangelicals intend to vote for a twice-divorced former casino owner who lies, bragged about assaulting women & rarely goes to church? @elizabethjdias  vividly captures TRUMP's enduring appeal to a critical part of his base.

@maggieNYT  Here's the host of tonight's TRUMP fundraiser, HAIM CHERA (2nd from L), at Trump's inauguration with (from L to R): • ALEX BALANEVSKY (NY resident who hangs with Russian elite) • LEN BLAVATNIK (ex-Oleg DERIPASKA business partner) • BEN ASHKENAZY (NY real estate billionaire) .

BIDEN's campaign instructs its policy committee members not to disclose their participation. “Simply put, do not talk to the press,” reads a list of rules. It also warns against using the committees "to further the interests of your employer, clients…"

After @dmccabe  & I began asking BIDEN's tech policy committee members about their work, some received a message reminding them of the conflict policy, & noting “it is sometimes hard to separate one’s personal views from those of one’s employer or clients "

The BIDEN campaign notes its policy committee network does not advise @JoeBiden  directly or set policy. Some suggest it's more about assuaging potential critics. And several antitrust champions serve on the tech cmte @superwuster (, @sarahmillerdc  , etc).

What will BIDEN do on BIG TECH & other hot-button issues? His policy positions on some such issues aren't very defined, so lobbyists, business & progressives are closely monitoring his policy advisers & staff for signs of a BIDEN administration approach.

Trump remembers details of cake he was eating while launching missiles, but not which country he was attacking.

VOICEMAIL FROM A FAN: “You’re the problem. You are the enemy of the people. And although the pen might be mightier than the sword, the pen is not mightier than the AK-47.”

NEW: The TRUMP admin. claimed it forced painful concessions from OLEG DERIPASKA to lift sanctions on his companies. But a confidential document shows he & his allies will retain majority ownership, & he will settle huge debts likely at favorable rates.
