President Elect Joe Biden Tweets

He tweeted condolences to the American and international Service Members killed in the terrible helicopter crash in Egypt.

He tweeted to introduce his Chief of Staff.

He tweeted a poignant memorial for Veterans Day.

He tweeted about how honored he is to have been elected to serve, pledging to be a President for all Americans.

He posted the readout of his call with the Pope.

He tweeted about the critical importance of the ACA protections during a pandemic.

Not ONE single cable, or big 3 news channels covered these in any detail.

Yet, whatever fart comes out of Dipshit Donnie face-rectum is treated as BREAKING NEWS, and worthy of endless coverage.

And the media wonders how in the fuck we ended up with this circus clown in the White House.

Liberal Media my ass.

Maybe not having them covered ad infinitum is a good and normal thing since they are of themselves good and normal things.

Broad, over-generalizations are not helpful to navigating an over-saturated market. It begs the question, how did you know if they all failed to cover them without watching every outlet?

I apologize for being critical, but there are many good people in the media even if there are weasel producers. It is a heavily-unionized industry with problems like any other. Know the weasels from the good people. 😂

the way it's commonly depicted is vastly overstated. I forget who it was that spoke so frankly about the subject, but it was during the Bush Jr administration, and he said that a good part of their bluster and complaining is to hopefully be "given a close call" next time. Same thing coaches do in sports.

41. Former Amazon Engineer Creates App to Translate Cat Meows into Words Humans Understand
Fri Nov 13, 2020, 03:33 PM
Nov 2020
"Using machine learning MeowTalk instantaneously translates your cat’s meows into one of nine general cat intents; these nine intents represent cat moods and states of mind. But each cat also has its own unique vocalization and vocabulary of meows that goes beyond these nine general intents," the app's description reads. "You can train the MeowTalk app to learn your cat’s unique vocabulary of meows (cat talk) by telling the app what each meow means when your cat makes it. When you give the app 5 to 10 examples of a specific meow for your cat (e.g. "food", "let me out&quot the app can start to recognize that meow (be your cat translator) when it hears it."[link:https://people.com/pets/meowtalk-app-translate-cat-meows/|

But if they start eviscerating Biden’s every comment, those subscriptions will be cancelled. And if they continue to cover Trump’s every irrational tweet once he is out of office, they will get no more money from me. The media are significantly responsible for the fact that we even have Trump as president. They need to do better.

and a good person. I did not see any news today but I am not surprised. But overall I think I would like to see a move away from reporting tweets on the news. Even though it should be reported I feel traumatized by all the dump constant tweets even though I rarely looked at any of them, just from having them reported on the news when I watched etc.
