@Culinary226  Purported Sanders supporters then went after the union. In our interview Arguello-Kline said she had never experienced anything like the threats in her 30 plus years of organizing. ,

It’s true. What do you think those driveway moments are REALLY about 😂. We are much closer than they imply.

Good Morning! @NPRWeekend  lots of stories from all around the world and the news item you didn't know you wanted about peacocks in Miami's Coconut Grove wreaking havoc. Oh and also there is this thing happening in #Nevada . Join US!

But what will ACTUALLY happen to these peafowl? Supposedly they will be humanely relocated. Hmmm.

@Culinary226  For context, the culinary union is one of the most sought-after endorsements in Nevada. It helped flip Nevada blue in 2018. but many of its membership is Latino, and Bernie Sanders is the front-runner among Latinos there.

The Union does not like Bernie's Medicare for All plan and sent out a flier.

Wow. @NPR 's @NPRKellyKelly  just n @npratcw  on @SecPompeosays  was furious about being questioned about Ukraine in her interview. Took her into his office, cursed at her, dropping f-bombs, made her point to Ukraine on an unmarked map (she did). It's just...shocking.

We exist because we believe in an informed, civil electorate that has access to facts based on trustworthy information and investigation. We reach rural communities where other news does not. Less than 2% of our funding comes from the government. We are part of this America.

@NPR  @NPRKellyT  @npratch  @SecPompeoe  full interview will be up soon. But here is the part that got him angry. She did her job for the American people. We ask questions because of the PUBLIC RIGHT TO KNOW. We represent you when we speak to officials who make decisions in our name.

That man and his tiny daughter who drowned...this is what they looked like alive. Her name was Valeria. His was Oscar. You can read their story here --->

I've been thinking a lot about what happens to journalists behind closed doors. The bullying from people like politicians (and others) who want us to do what they want. There is usually silence around these interactions. I'm glad people are getting a glimpse.

I wrote this feeling a great deal of anger and shame at my industry. ‘The media failed Latinos in America during what was perhaps our darkest hour in my lifetime. ‘

Yesterday, the 7 year old daughter of a friend of mine was almost kidnapped in DC outside her home. The woman came up behind her, grabbed her & told her that she had cotton candy for her & and tried to get her into her car & then she chased her. This is her picture.

At this point should they let in the United Nations or Save The Children or another NGO to help? I’ve only seen this kind of treatment of refugees in war zones.
