"Three federal commissions concluded that when police escalate force those efforts can often go wrong, creating the very violence that force was meant to prevent." https://t.co/440cYBhkhK

Best episode of PODCAST-19 yet, thanks to @jakewhosagirl's narrative production and @maggiekb1's careful, rigorous storytelling. https://t.co/Yz5TYiq7ZG

And, since I've been off Twitter for two months, one more excellent COVID-19 piece from earlier in May: @KaleighRogers @laurabronner and @juruwolfe taught me more about herd immunity in one piece than a dozen explainers have combined: https://t.co/x18vHwpI8d

In other FiveThirtyEight COVID-19 news, we have a COVID-19 podcast now! Hosted by the incomparable @Anna_Rothschild, it manages to somehow be approachable while being grounded in evidence and uncertainty. Sorta our thing around here, come to think of it: https://t.co/xQWtVhXfh1

"Death is hard — hard to count, hard to experience." @maggiekb1 is excellent on why our COVID-19 death counts are almost certainly too low, why that's to be expected, and what that means for the uncounted. https://t.co/CKi46ZqWdM

We’re besieged by models, all with different forecasts of the pain to come. Here’s why: https://t.co/nwo3hFQ71Y

It went through journey of tiny detailed explorations.
☝🏻 We at @FiveThirtyEight take tables pretty seriously. So, you’re welcome. 🙇🏻‍♀️ 
No lie when I say this is just a selection of the options before we chose the final direction: https://t.co/q3ohHMWbnn

It occurs to me that this is a good time (pre-South Carolina) to re-up my big-sweep story from this fall about Biden's relationship with black voters! https://t.co/noBfkjmIrR

Your evening commute read: tech was supposed to improve caucuses. Instead, it may have doomed them. My latest for @FiveThirtyEight https://t.co/WmkYUBBlNB

👋🏼 @FiveThirtyEight is hiring a data visualization intern for the summer. This is a sweet, well-paying ($20/hr+) gig during an exciting news cycle! If you're POC, queer, or disabled & have questions slide into my DMs.✨ https://t.co/27StPwjgEZ

I got a tattoo for journalism 😬. Check it out: https://t.co/oc42a4Y4WK https://t.co/nUBc64gxN4

A reminder, FiveThirtyEight heavily focuses on politics, sports and science. We care deeply about transparency. We seek out experts. And we make arguments without making opinions. Again: firstname dot last at fivethirtyeight dotcom. (And yes, we pay.)

Are you a subject-matter expert who does a lot of work with data? We'd love to talk about how to leverage that expertise, either through you writing or by pairing you up with one of our in-house journalists.

Are you a news reporter who doesn't want to say the Trump admin is "unbelievable" or the Democratic resistance is "deluded" -- come say hi; let's talk about what kind of reporting you do best.

Are you a narrative journalist who hasn't thought of FiveThirtyEight as a home for narrative? I'd love to prove you wrong! We do lots of narrative storytelling, and it reads just as lyrically as it does in magazines, just with better visuals.

All of this to say, I'd like to help chip away at this problem. So while I keep doing my own search, I also welcome your ideas and your pitches. firstname dot last @ fivethirtyeight dotcom. I'm seeking lots of different types of journalists and analysts...

But in the meantime -- and now I am in full conjecture, so take this with a grain of salt -- it seems a lot of the nonpartisan work has gone in-house, often swallowed by the big papers. That only makes it harder for up-and-coming journalists to break through in a nonpartisan way.

I am not blaming anybody here! I was a freelancer who once wrote 75-word capsules about entertainment apps just to make sure I had $400 coming in every week. Editors have to make their bosses happy; freelancers have to make their editors happy.
