A long, sometimes agonizing wait for federal unemployment payments to restart in Colorado came to an end for another 135,000 people over the last four days. Carrying out Phase 2 of its months-long rollout of the extended Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) programs, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment reopened its filing system Saturday to people who had used all of their federal benefits before Congress funded them for an additional 11 weeks.

Intercept editor-in-chief Betsy Reed said Greenwald was making himself out to be a “victim, rather than a grown person throwing a tantrum,” she wrote in a scathing public statement. In January, Poitras announced that she, too, had left First Look — but not by choice. In an open letter, Poitras wrote the company fired after … [Read more...] about Why Did First Look Let Go of Laura Poitras?
