Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) has released his "Real Deal" — a $6 trillion plan that addresses universal pre-K, housing and Medicare, AP reports.

The big picture: Other 2020 candidates, such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), have released sweeping plans and continue to poll at the top while Bennet has failed to qualify for a primary debate since July.

  • Bennet has argued large proposals about free college or single-payer health care would never pass Congress.

How it works: Bennet said he would pay for his plan by repealing many of President Trump's tax cuts and by increasing taxes with his "smart wealth tax."

Editor's note: This story has been corrected to reflect the fact that Bennet's plan focuses on Medicare (not Medicaid) and that he has previously criticized single-payer health care (not universal).

Newly released transcripts of bodycam footage from the Minneapolis Police Department show that George Floyd told officers he could not breathe more than 20 times in the moments leading up to his death.

Why it matters: Floyd's killing sparked a national wave of Black Lives Matter protests and an ongoing reckoning over systemic racism in the United States. The transcripts "offer one the most thorough and dramatic accounts" before Floyd's death, The New York Times writes.

Fighting the coronavirus infodemic

An "infodemic" of misinformation and disinformation has helped cripple the response to the novel coronavirus.

Why it matters: High-powered social media accelerates the spread of lies and political polarization that motivates people to believe them. Unless the public health sphere can effectively counter misinformation, not even an effective vaccine may be enough to end the pandemic.
