Meanwhile — we understand that it was a spectacular show on teevee. Apparently, one story changed more than a dozen times, and ratings were like nothing ever seen before.
NEW VIDEO – The Trump administration changed its story on migrant family separation no fewer than FOURTEEN TIMES in one week.https://t.co/mxTV3WkMHX

The Attorney General outlined a "zero-tolerance" policy last month and other members of the administration have described family separations as a "deterrent." Period. https://t.co/tbQlbmkquq

This is what family separation at the U.S., Mexico border sounds like.
ProPublica has obtained audio from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility, in which children can be heard wailing. https://t.co/YEdnD4o6sh

JUST IN: Video from inside our tour of the Border Patrol's processing station in McAllen — the epicenter of family separations.
You'll see single adult males, but at about 53 seconds in it gets to mothers and girls.

Here is the economist on the abomination that is the Trump/Pompeo refugee cuts, the most atrocious policy this administration has executed before the child separation on the border. Hopefully a backlash will yield similar changes https://t.co/fHoPZSkYUl #WorldRefugeeDay2018

And then a cartoonist was fired for his catalog of brutal realities. If you’ve lived in developing countries ruled by dictators (who typically, take over media outlets in the name of protecting their people), you will quickly realize that media outlets run by pals and cronies is a perilous cliff. Before long, the only cartoons and news fit to print are friendly litanies of the life of the country. There are no dissenters in fairytales, of course. We don’t want to be that country. I don’t think we will … but it doesn’t help my troubled soul tonight.
