It's always frustrating to see images go viral with no credit to the incredible photographers who take them. And it's happening with the National Guard at Capitol pics. So this remarkable image was captured by the AP's J. Scott Applewhite. Image
This is by AFP's @saulloeb. Image
Excellent one from Sarah Silbiger. Image

I understand why people are pleased with Trump's ban given the clear danger his tweeting posed. But we should be careful about cheerleading the unprecedented political power of unaccountable tech companies who hold a near monopoly on the distribution of information.
Both Twitter and Facebook knew which way the wind was blowing and they acted out of self-interest, as they always do. It's not about accuracy of information. Facebook, in monopolizing distribution and then strangling news orgs with its algorithms, has already proven that.
None of these platforms care about journalism or its norms, standards and values. They care only about money and power. They are unregulated, unlike the media (which is - to a greater or lesser degree depending on the country), and can do as they please.

Per Reuters: "Around 10 armed federal police officers arrived at Kumerra’s home ... and took him away in handcuffs in front of his wife and three children, his wife Hawi Desalegn said. She added that his eldest daughter, who is 10, clung to him screaming as he was led away."
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed came to power in 2018 promising, as part of a wave of reforms, freedom of expression in Ethiopia. Yet, according to CPJ's annual census of jailed journalists carried out on Dec. 1, there were at least seven journalists jailed there.

This is a personality cult. They have lost their grip on reality.
He is correct about one thing. The world *is* watching.

And it thinks you are all absurd.
