March 4, 1955. If you know anyone who was born on this date, drop a like.
I just hosted an @IQ2US debate on the Roe leak. The two debaters, @maryrziegler and @whignewtons (Sarah Isgur) proving sharp disagreement and civil discourse are NOT incompatible. Take a listen. Bet you'll learn something. intelligencesquaredus.org/debate/agree-t…
Is it possible for people, holding differing opinions to debate in a manner that doesn't involve demonizing? Most definitely. And @IQ2US is proof. Had a great chat with @clea_conner and @JohnDonvan of Intelligence Squared US. fcmakingmedia.podbean.com/e/intelligence…

One of the benefits of being the host of @IQ2US is being able to have conversations like these and talk to experts like @kvolker and @EmmaMAshford. Give our episode on #Ukraine a listen: bit.ly/3isMKCT
Pfizer and Moderna recently announced their intention to ask for authorization on a second booster to their COVID-19 vaccines. Listen to our debate on the ethics of the boosters with @VinGuptaMD, @DrLeanaWen and host @JohnDonvan: smarturl.it/s5gpqu

A lot of the big-picture stuff can get lost in the day-to-day coverage of #Ukraine, but (I'd like to think) our @IQ2US episode on the conflict and Putin's invasion does a good job of looking at a lot of what's at stake in this war for the wider world. bit.ly/3isMKCT
The latest @IQ2US debate is out now. Join me and our debaters Jennifer Hernandez, @joelkotkin, @margaretomara, and Ed Glaeser to hear their thoughts on the state of big cities like #NewYork, #Boston, #SanFrancisco, #LosAngeles and maybe where you live! bit.ly/3IxNBwz
As the news from #Ukraine looks ever more dire, I find myself re-listening to our @IQ2US debate on the conflict. Our debaters @EmmaMAshford and @kvolker, really contextualize the invasion and what it means for you and me. bit.ly/3isMKCT

As the US and NATO work to provide further support to the Ukrainians, I hope you find this @IQ2US debate between @EmmaMAshford and @kvolker helps add some context to the conflict. @cepa @AtlanticCouncil bit.ly/3isMKCT
As #Ukraine's President #Zelensky turns to the US Congress for help today ... @IQ2US ... we take measure of where US strategic interests lie ... a sharp, timely debate on the question ... intelligencesquaredus.org/debates/agree-…
As president, Barack Obama asked, "Will somebody tell me: What’s the American stake in #Ukraine?” At 12:30 Tues, I'm live online hosting @EmmaMAshford & @kvolker who will debate that very question, and more. Join us! We'll take your questions too. @IQ2US workcast.com/register?cpak=…

It was my pleasure to speak with @Rudawkurdish about the death of #ISIS leader al-Quraishi. We also covered the enduring strong partnerships of the #US with the #SDF, Iraqi security forces, and #Peshmerga, as well as the often harmful actions of #Turkey in Syria.

Ruth Sullivan was an early advocate for autistic Americans, particularly children, and the first president of the Autism Society of America. When she couldn’t afford a ticket to D.C. to talk w/lawmakers she went to the airport and asked pilots for a ride. washingtonpost.com/local/obituari…

Something about today, this week, this month ... has made me want to share this lovely moment in my career. And the video that goes with it: youtube.com/watch?v=bYAXD-…
Election watching by an open fire, in our nation's capital. Strangely our "watch party" , with much social distancing, is somberly silent as we watch the returns come in. Perhaps it's more boisterous where you are!

As lots of you know, I moderate the @IQ2US debates (REALLY GOOD DEBATES). Only one time did things really get out of control. Unruly debater-wise. Here's what I did. Hands worked. It was a gamble.
The moderator role requires re-definition. To be more than a host, timekeeper, question-asker. The role requires a referee, granted power to call fouls, penalize. Cut mics. Dock time from the rulebreaker. That's not taking sides. That's running the show. #PresidentialDebate
Okay, last night we saw a fiasco, not a debate. But debate as a concept CAN work, and play out civilly, and even shed light. Proof? Tonight at 6 EST, we're doing it yet again on a tough topic, Policing. It's free and YOU get to vote. I hope you'll join us. intelligencesquaredus.org/debates/unreso…

Definitely one of my all-time favorite interview guests, wherein I learn about a time when men in makeup was a character issue, and how the first "virtual" debate happened 60 years ago. Newt Minow... what a great conversation! twitter.com/IQ2US/status/1…
Found in a box: the warranty card for my Silver-Reed portable typewriter, the British-made tech that got me through the first years of my reporting career. Also: phone booths.
Just 75 years ago someone who looked like me didn’t have a credential into a White House built by slaves. The first black female White House reporter pawned her watch every week to eat. Grateful the next time I walk through the gates it will be as a White House corespondent ❤️
