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.

@terischultz  @SecPompeoT  @NPRKellyhat 's why they do it. It's the threat that you won't have access. Politicians do it. Publicists do it. They want to punish you so that you toe the line.

Good Morning! On @UpFirst  today: #impeachment  with @MaraLiasson  , #coronavirus  with @EmilyZFeng  and the torture trial in #Guantanamo  with @SachaPfeiffer  . Download now! Get the news you need to start your weekend.

This just in: In a statement, NPR's Senior Vice President for News Nancy Barnes said, “Mary Louise Kelly has always conducted herself with the utmost integrity, and we stand behind this report.”

@nprkyoung  @SecPompeoIndeed , as someone who has spent the bulk of my career overseas in perilous places I have never witnessed anything like this.

A great show @NPRWeekend : the Republicans make their case on #impeachment . Also, how has the media been covering the trial? Plus #coronovirus  preparation here in the US. And a candid and personal interview with @selenagomez  on her new album. Join us! We know geography ;)

@selenagomez  is thoughtful, smart and grounded. She has been through a lot but has come out the other side with a #1  album and a renewed sense of self. Our interview coming up now.

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.

@melissaaaasch  Actually, we have to bring clarity to the listener. As you heard at the end there, she was happy with her interview as she should have been. This was a beautiful interview about her album. I don't think you should undercut her own message about telling her story her way.

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.

@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 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.
