A fitting tribute to the former @CNN and @BBCNews boss Chris Cramer who has died. Tough but compassionate & a proper news man.

Has Trump apologized to Pence for inciting the insurrection that could have had Pence killed?

Fair point.

Every broadcast journalist & TV News executive should listen to this masterclass on how to report TV News. How a British team led by ⁦@robertmooreitv⁩ scooped the world on the storming of the US Congress- by their generous rivals the BBC. ⁦

Quoted @ForeignPolicy

“There were so many people who had access to [Trump’s] ear who were telling him things, most of which were untrue, and then he began to listen to those voices and form a view that had no basis in fact.”

The view of one who served Trump; “we got nowhere.. with N. Korea, with Russia, with China.”

#Sweden reports a record number of daily #COVID19 deaths; 351. It takes the toll above 10,000, multiples higher than its neighbours. New infections appear to be easing; 6,580 new daily cases. Its Gov’t has passed stricter laws, signalling the end of the Swedish experiment.

That’s a relief.

And more awful #COVID19 figures, from @NBCNews; Coronavirus cases in the United States topped 23 million today (total cases: 23,007,020).
Texas is the 2nd U.S. state behind California to report over 2 million coronavirus cases (total cases: 2,018,549).

Inside the Capitol this morning where Speaker Pelosi usually walks to her office.

Guns at the ready. US troops inside the Capitol.

Stunned. Just stunned.

Stunning indeed. Pictures of American troops inside the US Capitol, as Washington prepares for the peaceful transfer of power. Not since the civil war has America seen this.

1,564 new deaths in 1 day from #COVID19 in Britain. Who are they? Are they destined to disappear into stats without a trace? Have we stopped reporting on these people? Each 1 is a story to be told, but I struggle to find big news sites doing it regularly.. in UK, US or elsewhere.

BREAKING: The UK records the highest daily death toll from #COVID19 since the start of the pandemic. 1,564 deaths were recorded within 28 days of a positive Covid test. Britain is now close to having the highest proportion of deaths per million people in the world.

From Dalton to Washington, here's my coverage for @AP_GMS of last week's events in French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, and Luxembourgish, in that order.

Bloody hell @PhilipinDC, I'll hang up my microphone now. No, wait... no Irish? Mandarin or Russian? Some way to go then! Kudos to you.

#FBIWFO is seeking the public's assistance in identifying those who made unlawful entry into U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6. If you witnessed unlawful violent actions contact the #FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI or submit photos/videos at .

Trump supporters on @FBI Wanted posters. This is the way it ends...

Quoted @DeanBrowningPA

The events of the past few days prove without any doubt that Barack Obama was the most divisive President in the history of this nation.

Four years after his reign, this country has still not been able to heal from his constant vilification of his political opponents.

For those who don’t tune in to die hard Trump supporters, here’s one. For some, the earth is flat, whatever the evidence.

BREAKING: As with the US for the last two days, the UK has recorded its highest daily death toll since the start of the pandemic; 1,325 deaths within 28 days of a positive #COVID19 test.
