In 2019, we proposed banning N.D.A.s in harassment cases; @newyorker mgmt didn’t respond. A new policy @condenast prohibits such N.D.A.s only on a case-by-case basis—the company decides what is or isn’t a “good faith” claim. We need a contractual commitment to end this practice. https://t.co/HSYwsPFXf6

I wrote about coronavirus-themed commercials, where consumption is reframed as a public service performed by heroes, for heroes: https://t.co/lj1udgh6my

If you've ever heard a cat growl when another cat sneaks up while he’s eating...In this case, P-65 & P-78 were able to "tolerate" each other while feeding on a deer the night before P-78, a young male mountain lion, was captured & had a GPS collar placed on him in Dec ‘19. https://t.co/G0fopDJdPa

For this Week's @wcp cover I took a look at the changes in our commercial landscape, it's like a very quiet bomb went off https://t.co/8DmHFHFf41 https://t.co/wDNX1a0e1e

This is a thread about what it’s like to be Elon Musk’s neighbor.

If not for local news, Americans would lose a vital way to:
 
- learn life-saving information
- hold governments and businesses accountable
- take an active role in their communities

Cuomo is indistinguishable from Trump today in the way he is responding to the NYT reporter. "I know you're from the New York Times but facts still matter."

my fellowship at @nytimes ends in 10 days just so you guys know. if you want to hire me for some freelance in NYC, just know I am NOT opposed to that - in fact, I would welcome it, as my livelihood depends on it!

Quoted @thefilmgoer

Something of a bombshell: Norma McCorvey, aka Jane Roe, switched sides on abortion in the '90s. In a new FX documentary filmed before her death in 2017, McCorvey says she was paid to do so. @MeredithBlake reports, for @latimes: https://t.co/LQ5iUG65HG

"In what she describes as a 'deathbed confession,' a visibly ailing McCorvey restates her support for reproductive rights in colorful terms: 'If a young woman wants to have an abortion, that’s no skin off my ass. That’s why they call it choice.'" https://t.co/boA6zWwCz0

Today, we sent the following letter to @RogerLynch, backed by over a hundred of our colleagues at @ars_union, @thenewyorkerunion, and @p4kunion, demanding that @CondeNast immediately recognize our union and improve severance packages for our recently laid off coworkers. https://t.co/NqOILOqxXw

And if your newsroom wants to put something together to help your laid-off or furloughed colleagues, get in touch with me, @kateconger, @kwameopam and/or @amandahess, we set up a fund for freelancers at @nytimes back in April that should be easy enough to copy.

While I was doing some reporting on how the pandemic is affecting teenagers, one common theme kept coming up: They miss their partners!! So I talked to some high school couples around the country to see how they're dealing with everything: https://t.co/GDxVd4vsap
