Poll: has the absence of coverage on CNN / MSNBC / NYT / WaPo of Biden’s sexual allegations changed your perception and of the media. If it hasn’t (without getting nasty), can you explain why it hasn’t? Looking for a structured convo here not bashing with bs links to articles.

I think there might be multiple factors that have created this perception: 1) There is obviously a lot going on right now, so while the media does cover it, maybe it’s not getting the same level of headlines. 2) The sheer number of allegations. Any allegation should be taken seriously and investigated. But if multiple people come forward, that leads to more headlines. 3) If we are comparing to coverage of, say, Trump, there is also the factor of how much it’s discussed amongst readers, and can certainly be influenced by who they support politically.

I like OP: “there has been no coverage. Please have an objective debate as to why”. Several people post links to actual articles. OP: “you’re just posting links and have to search for them! Bah ahaha that’s pathetic”. I like your objective debate, OP.

Google News has been trending a lot with enough coverage by MSM on Biden. I do not think there has been any absence of coverage. What is your complaint? If Biden had said that she was so ugly to be banged as demented Trump said for his accusers, it would have generated lot more coverage. He instead settled it with a clear and concise written statement and in person on Mika's show. Sorry, it did not achieve the outcome you expected. Also, can you help us understand why are you trying really hard to fan a dying fire.

Well being that we’re in a pandemic that has claimed 70K US lives, I wouldn’t say so much that it’s not been covered as it is much that people don’t care about it given the circumstances we are in. People didn’t care about the countless allegations against Trump and he grabbing women by the crotch and people still voted for him. The answer is that simple.

Sad but true. We have demonstrated countless times through many elected officials (Clinton too) that we as a people don’t think it disqualifies someone from leading the country.

It has absolutely been covered and other Democrats have spoken about it too.

My son is entering Kindergarten and his (great but hamstrung) public school can only offer 60-85 minutes per day for remote learning, 3 days per MONTH in-school. Just not feasible for a working mom in this industry. So I met some parents, we hired a private teacher, and I’m rolling with a 4-family homeschool pod. I’m keeping my kid in public school, hoping the curriculums can align and not go crazy. Love and strength to all moms and dads and partners out there. It’s tough - but so are we!

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
