The medical experts do separate interviews as well. Just quit watching the president make a fool out of himself. (duh)

Until now I didn't see a way he could really lose the election.  Too bad the Dems have two unlikely to get real votes now.

"President Trump is blatantly using the news organizations' extensive, live coverage to freely campaign for a second term," the petition claims. "It is wrong and dangerous to provide so much unfettered airtime to someone who is happily, shamelessly spreading terrible, damaging misinformation that is already costing fellow Americans their lives."

Rather than broadcasting live coverage of the White House's COVID-19 briefings, the MoveOn petition asks broadcasters to monitor the briefings instead "and have your anchors and correspondents quickly share appropriately edited valuable accurate parts."

The "valuable accurate parts," the petition states would be the statements coming "from medical experts."

eh eh you're absolutely right ensbb3, it isn't American English and probably none of the other "something English".
I just wrote a literal translation from Portuguese way of speaking but using English words. The program didn't complain.

This moment, the programs indicates me to remove "absolutely" and to add "the" before Portuguese. I want the program to f****.

Anyway, I'm aware that many times I just translate Portuguese to English words without caring if the result is the correct way of speaking in English or not. The reason I don't care is because any other nationality speaks English even worst, the exception being for Frenzie and Ersi.  :cheers:
I'm probably gonna have to let the missus trim mine... Incidentally I need to pull out my summer hats soon.

To be fair she was a little sauced and it was for fun last time. :worried:

I just have a doubt,

That's not really American English there, I'm guessing you chose one of the others then?

It'd be more like "My only doubt is,"
Proper edicate depends on the hat, I suppose. Like situations not all are so formal.

Take your hat off at the dinner table. And when you ask a lady to dance. Those seem universal. Wearing one indoors isn't taboo with friends/family. But, it'll set you apart as someone with sense when you're a guest to less familiar folks. If they're wearing hats, though, you don't wanna linger on the point.

Well they re pleasing lesser brained folk eh?!
Rather Yankee influenced answer there ersi. I am not impressed with that British failed politician on Sputnik but there have been interesting other progs on RT which one can suss out and we must simply be brained by the West and US propaganda then?!

I discovered a nice thing, Grammarly (free version).
It's already working integrated in D&D. Now on I cheat and write like Shakespeare.

I thought I should translate that text to Early Modern English, to make it truly Shakespearean, but forsooth! those translators are ridiculous.

Quite unfortunate because other marginal and outright extraneous goodies in Koreader have made significant leaps, whereas column mode is relevant to actual reading.
