AFTER BEING interrupted by a group of Black Lives Matter protesters, @PeteButtigieg said we owe each other respect even if we don’t see things the same way. He added, “You’ll never see me describe a political opponent as an enemy of the people.”
Every time they protest, every time the press covers it, more people get to see what a President with integrity looks like. A President who governs for everyone. https://t.co/wOBvLaUuIh pic.twitter.com/UXonGTkXWa

This hardly looks like @PeteButtigieg is not concerned about racial equality. To the contrary, he appears to take the issue, and the related issue of white supremacy, seriously. https://t.co/P9Yu2kxa3X

FACEBOOK won’t stop running political ads that are laden with lies says The New York Times. “In the absence of regulation, Facebook and other companies are left to design their own policies,” Rob Leathern, Facebook’s director of product management overseeing the advertising integrity division, said in the post. “We have based ours on the principle that people should be able to hear from those who wish to lead them, warts and all, and that what they say should be scrutinized and debated in public.”
Other social media companies have decided otherwise, and some had hoped Facebook would quietly follow their lead. In late October, Twitter’s chief executive, Jack Dorsey, banned all political advertising from his network, citing the challenges that novel digital systems present to civic discourse. Google quickly followed suit with limits on political ads across some of its properties, though narrower in scope.

THE WORLD DEBT surged by some $9 trillion in the first three quarters of 2019, according to data from the Institute of International Finance, bringing the world’s total debt load to $253 trillion, or 322% of its GDP — a record high according to Axios.
HOBART COLLEGE In 2011, students led by Weston Traub ’13 (center) took the polar plunge in Seneca Lake as part of a fundraiser coordinated by Hope House to support cancer research. Kevin Colton captured this photograph while wearing waders. What we didn’t say in the caption is that the waders had a leak. Kevin got a little soggy that day.
DID TRUMP TWEET A PIC OF A DEAD BODY? Donald Trump has posted an image of an apparently dead body on his Twitter feed amid a wild stream of messages in support of his policy on Iran. The image showed a bloodied male figure draped over a barbed wire fence. Mr Trump retweeted a number of posts denouncing Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the US House. She has criticised his decision to unilaterally order the killing of Qassem Soleimani, Tehran’s top general – and also approved a successful vote on articles of impeachment against him. The US president also promoted a tweet that claimed Ms Pelosi “supports a regime that kills its people”.
Mr Trump further retweeted an image that showed Ms Pelosi alongside Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, mocked up in a burkha and turban with an Iranian flag in the background. On Sunday, Mr Trump urged Iran’s leaders not to used violence against protesters. “The World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching,” he said.

SILENCE OF THE LAMBS‘ Spinoff Clarice is a Go at CBS. The potential series takes place in 1993, a year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. Clarice is described as a deep dive into the untold personal story of Clarice Starling — the role made famous by Jodie Foster in the 1991 feature — as she returns to the field to pursue serial murderers and sexual predators while navigating the high-stakes political world of Washington. An actress for the role has not been announced.
“After more than 20 years of silence, we’re privileged to give voice to one of America’s most enduring heroes — Clarice Starling,” Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet said in a joint statement announcing the news. “Clarice’s bravery and complexity have always lit the way, even as her personal story remained in the dark. But hers is the very story we need today: her struggle, her resilience, her victory. Her time is now, and always.”
MAKE IT SO Star Trek Picard hasn’t even aired yet and has already been greenlit for a second season. Says The Hollywood Reporter, “Ahead of its Jan. 23 series debut, CBS All Access announced Sunday during its time at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour that it has officially renewed the Patrick Stewart-led drama for season two. The energy and excitement around the premiere of Star Trek: Picard has reached a magnitude greater than all of us at CBS All Access could have hoped for,” said Julie McNamara, executive VP originals at CBS All Access. “We’re thrilled to announce plans for a second season before the series’ debut, and we are confident that Star Trek fans and new viewers alike will be captured by the stellar cast and creative team’s meticulously crafted story when it premieres on Jan. 23.”

Additionally, 12 Monkeys alum Terry Matalas has boarded Picard as an executive producer and has also signed an overall deal with CBS TV Studios. Sources note that the studio pulled him off of its MacGyver reboot at CBS to join Picard, which is a high priority for the studio. Matalas, sources say, will take over as showrunner in season two and help fill the void created by Michael Chabon’s planned departure. A release announcing the renewal referred to Matalas only as exec producer, though sources say he is the likely eventual showrunner.
