Quote Of The Day: Barack Obama

by News & Guts

Sometimes one word is all you need.

Former President Barack Obama has been a silent bystander for much of the last three years. But on Saturday, he delivered a blistering critique of the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response, which he called an “absolute chaotic disaster.”

In the ensuing days, Donald Trump has been tweet-raging, pumping conspiracy theories and pushing for investigations into his predecessor. Trump and Fox News have teamed up to give it a name, Obamagate.

To all this nonsense, Barack Obama had a one word tweet that was on the one hand a retort, and on the other, advice.

Quote Of The Day: Ronald Klain

by News & Guts

Today’s quote comes from a must-read piece in The Guardian that examines the lost time in fighting coronavirus. The story is headlined: ”The Missing Six Weeks: How Trump Failed The Biggest Test Of His Life” and the quote comes from Ron Klain, the man who headed the White House Ebola response under President Obama.

“The US response will be studied for generations as a disastrous, failed effort. What’s happened in Washington has been a fiasco of incredible proportions.
We are witnessing one of the greatest failures of governance and basic leadership in modern times.”
Ronald Klain

by Nathan Yau

Google Maps incorporates data from smartphones to estimate traffic in any given location. Artist Simon Weckert used this tidbit to throw the statistical models off the scent. With a wagon of 99 smartphones, he turned roads red on Google Maps just by walking around.

Nice.

Dan Rather: For The Sake Of Our Nation, We Must Fairly Uncover Right From Wrong

by Dan Rather

I am stunned. And I like to think I do not stun easily.

I find myself at moments almost speechless – granted not a quality one associates with former or even current news anchors.

This is a story unlike any I have ever seen. Its contours seem to entangle this administration like a giant squid around a submarine in an old science fiction film, tentacles prying apart what once seemed solid. With a spectacle like this, it’s sometimes important to pause and try to take in as wide a picture as possible. There is so much we do not know, but what we know already is gravely striking. What the president, his lawyer, and others have already copped to would be enough to almost roll credits in a mob film. I apologize for the multiple cinematic allusions, but this story defies the imagination normally required for real life.

For most of my life, my job was to try to make sense of events, big and small, in real-time. Sort of like a play by play broadcaster relating to an audience what is transpiring, often ad-libbing as new details emerge.

I find myself wondering what it would be like to be in the midst of this story, either on the ground in Washington or in an anchor chair, tapping the incoming rivers of information from reporters, on Capitol Hill, at the White House, and at other perches necessary for covering this rapidly metastasizing narrative.

What I return to, as I think back at other moments of crisis and uncertainty, is the need as a reporter and as a citizen to remain steady. Now steadiness should not be confused with apathy or detachment. We need to be engaged, with a steely determination to get to the bottom of what seems to be but the tip of a proverbial iceberg. There are many leads to follow, many new angles emerging. We cannot afford to lose grasp of the threads of the much bigger story arc.

This is unprecedented. This is dangerous. But this is also necessary. We cannot panic in the face of what we confront, or get overwhelmed by details. We must breathe deep, take stock, see all for what it is, methodically and fairly uncover right from wrong, truth from fiction, and ultimately we must persevere, for the sake of our nation.
