Retweeted by David Leonhardt @davidenrich Thanks. I'd argue the combination of Trump, Murdoch and Bharara is interesting and newsworthy enough to mention somewhere.Three thousand Iowans died fighting for the Union. Iowa Congressman @SteveKingIA keeps the flag of the country that…
Retweeted by David Leonhardt @davidenrich Is the DeBlasio investigation relevant to his firing?Another bomb threat at Rochester JCC. 2nd time this week. Evacuations as kids celebrate Purim (it's like Halloween).
Retweeted by David Leonhardt @davidenrich No, no. I found that story. Question is: On news value, how do you ignore the Fox investigation in the Bharara/Trump coverage?Here's hoping the negotiations kill it with fire.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtThe @USCBO has long been known for its small-c conservative forecasts. Finally, I want to reiterate that I have enormous respect -- as a reader and competitor -- for the journalists fighting for a great @wsj.5. It's hard to think of a purer test: On one side, Trump *and* Murdoch. On the other, journalism.4. Remember there's a struggle inside @wsj. Many reporters and editors are fighting against its Murdochification. Have others seen coverage I have not? Has @WSJ been willing to acknowledge Bharara investigation of Fox News?2. @wsj has instead focused on Bharara investigations of DeBlasio and Cuomo and not mentioned investigation of Fox News.1. Worth watching: So far, the @WSJ coverage (that I've read and searched) has steadfastly ignored this investigati… @raju @Twitter I assume you don't think any of the jobs is permanent!Looks like Mattis was the fastest to stop applauding. @ArtbyAWOHS No. I'm an opinion columnist, not a reporter.Godspeed, Johnny Hoops.
Retweeted by David Leonhardt @Avik @USCBO Of course they're fallible. But there is no honor in trying to undermine their credibility, as Price and colleagues are trying.If Rs fail to pass a health-care bill, their whole legislative program for this Congress is in serious trouble, and…

Retweeted by David Leonhardt @sangerkatz @KevinQ In lieu of niceness, you get access to niceness, Kevin. Be grateful.Is there a German word for "happiness at the misfortune of others that in turn may prevent the misfortune of 24 million Americans"? @sportslogosnet Egad.They were warned. They were given an explanation. Nevertheless, they persisted.

@jerseyjazzman Those are interesting, important issues. They're also distinct from the important "should parents have a choice?" question. @CFCostello Thanks! @TimBroderick @jerseyjazzman I mean it straight up: Should families be required to send their kid to one public school? Or have some choice?If you care about the fight to preserve millions of people's health insurance, read this string ---> education story in Pennsylvania seems quite worrisome... @harrymattison @GardnerPilot Thanks! @katrintheresa Thanks!"parents & students should not be trapped in a monopoly" @DLeonhardt on the importance of school choice @edu_post
Retweeted by David Leonhardt @jerseyjazzman Serious question: Do you think parents and kids should be required to attend one school, without choice? @Ruth4Schools It's mostly not about gentrification: @rpondiscio The chart and many numbers are about NAEP, though.The education debate focuses too much on teacher accountability and not enough on principal accountability.
