I love the still Trump drunk pundits bitching about the press being nicer to Biden than Trump. Maybe it has something to do with not calling them the fake news enemy of the people?

Quoted @pt

I feel like some folks upset A16Z “going direct” are telling on themselves.

Access media requires cooperation, but isn’t valuable. Investigative journalism is valuable, but doesn’t require cooperation.

Imagine Woodward writing an emo think-piece about Nixon not returning calls.

If anything the media/tech media will pay even *more* attention to A16Z. If I recall correctly, celebrities PRs always tell their clients to give the media what they want. When they don’t, that’s when the media gets very interested.

Trump is a cad and a bounder. Good riddance.

@MattSilverPR @wadds @mikebutcher @MStothard Agree. Mike ran the session well this afternoon. Keeping the chat moving forward but staying on topic, and not having too many people ‘on stage’ at once are important parts of a good session. A bit like panel moderation or hosting a radio debate, really.

Thanks for joining Martin!

@wadds I was sceptical (and only had brief poke about), but tuned in to well moderated discussion earlier on what’s happening in tech with @mikebutcher @MStothard @MartinSFP and few others. Was pleasantly surprised.

Could be useful, but moderation and community management will be key

Thanks Matt

Biden quotes Psalm 30:5 - "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

Amen.

Meanwhile, while the US has refreshed its democracy (and not before time) the U.K. is still stuck with the Medieval First Past The Post system and a Brexit which will impoverish our country and supercharge the wealthy. The latest evidence:

Adding my voice to those congratulating @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris on their inaugurations. Hoping for a better USA under their stewardship. They have the wind at their backs! #BidenInauguration

Immigration attorneys all over America can finally nap/step away from Twitter/breath without fearing the next horrendous immigration change. It's been a long 4 years. Well done to all my friends and colleagues. We resisted every single second.

On Telegram, Ron Watkins finally accepts an election which he spent months as being illegitimate and stolen. Somehow "it is our responsibility as citizens to respect the Constitution" doesn't seem to cut it when you've built up your 100k+ subscribers on a diet of misinfo.

"Putin's palace. History of world's largest bribe" by @navalny.

10 minutes into this and I am HOOKED! This should be a Netflix series!

To people replying/wondering why it's important that the leader of the UK might be taking a nap: The POINT and the STORY is that the PM might have 'Long Covid'. That’s a story. And that affects his decision-making. Is he healthy enough to be PM? THAT is the point. #LongCovid

Alexei Navalny releases investigation into Vladimir Putin's '£1bn palace' and the alleged slush fund behind the private residence on Russia's Black Sea coast.

It features a Casino and a Hookah Bar with a pole-dancing pole...
