It was complicity,” writes Jim Newell in his breakdown of the final January 6 hearing of the summer, for Slate. Orion Rummler reports for The 19th on how the Respect for Marriage Act would protect same-sex marriage if the landmark Supreme Court case of Obergefell v.

ITT Staff Picks: “Rather than announcing any major initiatives, Biden, who is on a four-day trip to Israel, the occupied West Bank, and Saudi Arabia, seems more like he is headed into the region in search of an exit from it,” writes Murtaza Hussain for The Intercept.   The seventh January 6th hearing focused on confirming that former President Donald Trump was at the center of the attempted coup, writes John Nichols for The Nation.  Al Tompkins reports on why KVUE and the Austin-American Statesman decided to release video footage of law enforcement's response to the mass shootings in Uvalde, for Poynter.

Last month, new photos and documents surrounding China's internment camps in Xinjiang came to light. These documents further exposed China's efforts against the minority Uyghur population through forced labor, sterilization, and even torture. Holding China's suppression campaign together is a sophisticated mass surveillance infrastructure comprised of advanced facial recognition, mobile phone tracking, and more.BuzzFeed's Megha Rajagopalan, who won a Pulitzer Prize for her coverage on Xinjiang, helps Doug unpack the significance of the leaked documents, how China's campaign against the Uyghurs has evolved in recent years, and China's intricate mass surveillance apparatus.Follow Doug on Twitter @DouglasLFarrar. The 2021 Pulitzer Prize Winner in International Reporting: Megha Rajagopalan, Alison Killing and Christo Buschek of BuzzFeed News.

Julio and guest co-host Jamilah King, deputy inequality editor at BuzzFeed News, talk about the first public hearing on the January 6 attempted coup at the U.S. Capitol. They also get into the Congressional hearing in response to gun violence and the mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde last month. And, they discuss the media coverage of a migrant caravan traveling to the U.S. through Mexico, and the upcoming 10 year anniversary of the DACA program. ITT Staff Picks: In this piece for The Boston Globe, columnist Renée Graham analyzes whether the public will actually pay attention to the Jan. 6 hearings, despite their clear importance for American democracy. “Our security is a constitutional value, one that outweighs absolutist gun-rights claims by NRA lobbyists, or Oath Keepers, and other insurrectionist groups who hold their access to weapons dear for use in an imagined anti-tyranny quest,” writes law professor Thomas P. Crocker in this piece for The Atlantic. On the 10-year anniversary of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA, recipients are reflecting on the program's limitations and an uncertain future, writes journalist Jeff Brumley in this piece for Baptist News.

The buyout is only available to reporters and editors who cover investigations, inequality, politics or science and have worked for the company for more than a year.   “Though BuzzFeed is a profitable company, we don't have the resources to support another two years of losses,” Peretti said at the time. “The most responsible thing we can do is to manage our costs and ensure BuzzFeed — and HuffPost — are set up to prosper long-term. That's why we've made the difficult decision to restructure HuffPost to reach profitability more quickly. Our goal is for HuffPost to break even this year.”   Time spent on BuzzFeed properties (on both owned-and-operated and third-party platforms) declined 4% to 186 million hours in Q4, driven by a decline in time spent on Facebook   July 23, 2019 - In a mission statement presented to Buzzfeed News Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith back in February, employees stated that “Our staff is uniting to demand a contract that guarantees paid time off is actually paid. We demand an agreement that requires due process for termination, a diverse newsroom, reasonable severance amid layoffs, a competitive 401(k), rights to our creative works, and affordable health insurance. We believe it's urgent that our management address unfair pay disparities. We also believe that employees on contract — permalancers, who are paid through a third party but are functionally members of our team — deserve the same treatment.” “It has been our members' determination that has finally secured recognition,”   Final Thoughts; Is an industry as successful as you think?
