    As stricken CNN launches a huge round of staff layoffs, newly anointed morning show host Don Lemon has caused yet more controversy after 'mansplaining' to his female co-hosts why men's sports bring in more money. The heated debate, during which his CNN This Morning co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins struggled to get a word in, occurred Thursday morning as it was revealed the US Women's National Soccer Team will earn more from the men's world cup than they did from their 2019 World Cup championship. Lemon, whose been responsible for a spate of controversial on-air statements, attempted to explain to his colleagues that the US women's soccer team has historically earned less than their male counterparts because there is simply limited interest in their playing of the sport. 'You cannot make people become interested in something they are not interested in,' he said. Upon receiving pushback from co-host Poppy Harlow, he quickly caveated his opinion with the blanket statement: 'I'm not sexist.' 'I grew up the only boy in a family of all women,' he added, before recounting that...

Roche said Xi will very likely "sail through" his confirmation as China's top party chief in the upcoming National Congress meeting, which sets the stage for him to secure another five-year term as the country's leader. There won't be any "real resistance to him at senior levels of the communist party,," he added at the Congress party meeting due to be held later this year. "He faces a lot of challenges. Not only the external challenges of Taiwan, which is certainly not getting any closer to China, but he faces the economic challenges," Roche, president and global strategist at Independent Strategy, told CNBC's "Squawk Box Asia" on...

    This season has been nothing less than a roller-coaster ride for Matt Nagy’s Chicago Bears. The franchise has had its fair share of highs and lows. Chicago looked like playoff contenders with a 5-1 start, however, a six-game skid has meant that they will be relying on a wildcard berth. They still have a fighting chance.
