Good Morning! We have bleeped content @NPRWeekend  again this week -- I'm looking at you @MichelleButeau  ! Plus, the White House on SCOTUS nomination, space debris, #Nevada  and Latinos and the GOP, voting security and so much more. Join us!

Three thoughtful undecided white voters speak their mind @NPRWeekend  on what is informing their choice this #Election2020 

We will probably not know who won on election day but that is not a problem says @myrna_perez_ 

How might you get rid of space junk ? Giant pincers, harpoons! @raffiwriter  talks us through the problems of Space Junk which he wrote about in the @NewYorker 

@wcveworldmusic  @NPRWeekendI  asked them. It was a very long interview. Josh Rogin came up for 2 of them. Social media. And MSM, selectively.

Here is his riveting story. This past week the ISS has to maneuver away from junk again

Thing my daughter said while watching a @Target delivery ad ‘The joy of Target is getting to go there’. Yes, I’m the Mom where going there is an OUTING.

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.

Meanwhile in Bethesda MD, a wealthy enclave outside DC...a man assaults a child for putting up anti-racist signs. The park police are now looking for him.

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 --->

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.

I guess what has surprised me the most during this pandemic is how comfortable Americans have gotten with a huge death toll of their fellow citizens.

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.

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. ‘

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.
