Great double header on #thePENpod tomorrow. First, PEN/Hemingway award winner Ruchika Tomar on the inequality of the pandemic; and then our weekly "tough questions" segment with @SuzanneNossel! Please tune in and subscribe: http://anchor.fm/penamerica
UPDATE: The WH has backtracked. Our CEO @SuzanneNossel says now the @VP should affirm that all government scientists can speak openly to the public without regard to politics.
Glad @VP has reversed egregious ban on Drs #Fauci and #Birx from @CNN in attempt to force network to air WH briefings. Now he should affirm that all US govt scientists are free to speak forthrightly to the public about #COVID, without regard to politics. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/09/media/pence-office-tv-bookings-coronavirus/index.html?utm_source=Daily+Lab+email+list&utm_campaign=5d44f1541b-dailylabemail3&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_d68264fd5e-5d44f1541b-396347593
