  • "[January the 20th] is a scheme to replicate the great British documentation/ethnography project of the '30s, mass observation. I don't know who's launched this remake but it's a great opportunity to build up a picture of the actual America--not Bill Kristol's, not Jon Meacham's, not MSM's. Teachers, put your students to work! Journos, tell everybody!"   -Todd Gitlin, Professor of Journalism and Sociology, Columbia University
