    Republican leader Kevin McCarthy finally on Tuesday condemned Donald Trump's meeting with white supremacist Nick Fuentes — but gave the former president the benefit of the doubt in saying that he didn't know who we was meeting. Democrats were quick to condemn Trump's meeting with Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago last week, and criticized Republicans who steered clear of commenting. McCarthy, who is in line to become speaker of the House after Republicans won control of the lower chamber in the midterm elections, was among those who had kept his own counsel. On Tuesday, after a meeting at the White House, he was asked why he had not condemned the meeting.  'I don't think anybody should be spending any time with Nick Fuentes,' he told reporters.  'He has no place in this Republican Party. I think President Trump came out four times and condemned him and didn't know who he was.' When he was told Trump had not condemned him or his ideology, McCarthy responded: 'Well, I condemn his ideology. 'It has no place in our society.' House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy was...

    CNN's first chief anchor Bernard Shaw, who died Thursday of pneumonia aged 82, said in an interview late in life that he didn't think his career was 'worth it' because it kept him from his family.  Shaw became the chief anchor of the major news network in 1980 when it launched in Atlanta, and for the next two-decades he built an award-winning career in broadcast journalism that saw him traverse the globe covering politics and conflict. The award-winning newsman retired from CNN in 2001 at the relatively young age of 61, appearing sporadically until 2005.  In a 2014 interview with NPR, he admitted to regrets over having missed time with his wife, Linda, and two children, saying: 'I don't think it was worth it.'  Shaw last appeared on CNN in 2020 to reflect on the news network's 40th anniversary.  Bernard Shaw, CNN's first chief anchor, died Thursday at 82 Shaw became known as one of the 'Boys of Baghdad,' a group of reporters who documented the beginning of the Persian Gulf War in 1991 from an Iraqi hotel room Shaw...

    Megyn Kelly has revealed that she considered moving to CNN after she was given a 'huge offer' by then-network boss Jeff Zucker.  Although Kelly did not give details as to the exact nature of the offer, she explained on her eponymous podcast that she decided to turn down Zucker because she did not think that her loyal audience would move across with her and watch the left-leaning network. Kelly left Fox News in 2017 and said that she immediately gave serious consideration to working for CNN.   'I considered going to CNN. CNN made me a huge offer. Huge,' she reiterated. Ultimately, Kelly signed up with NBC to host a morning show, which ended up being cancelled after a combination of low ratings and a headline-grabbing racism scandal after Kelly, who is white, defended the practice of blackface.  Megyn Kelly has said she was approached by CNN's Jeff Zucker to join the network and was made a 'huge' offer which she turned down

    WHEN Jessica Hocking first started hanging out with her colleague Dermot Murray, she thought they'd only ever have a "father and daughter" kind of relationship.

    Brooke Shields says she was 'naive' about the double entendre she uttered in her iconic 1980 Calvin Klein commercial when she was just 15 — and dismisses the critics who 'berated' her and assumed she knowingly delivered the sexual message as 'ridiculous.' In the commercial, one of several that Brooke, now 56, filmed with legendary photographer Richard Avedon for Calvin Klein, the then-teen posed in a pair of blue jeans and said, 'You wanna know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.' In a new interview with Vogue, Brooke said she was very 'protected' and 'didn't think it was sexual in nature' — so she was 'shocked' when the media went crazy for it, accusing her of utilizing a control of her sexuality that she didn't posses. 'I think the assumption is that I was much more savvy than I ever really was,' she said. 'It didn't faze me. [The line] didn't sort of come into my psyche as it being anything overtly sexual, sexualized in any way,' she added.  Iconic: Brooke Shields, 56, shot to stardom upon starring in...
    A MUM who changed her baby's name at six months old has been left stunned after her family's reaction. In a post on Mumsnet, the concerned mum explained how she had chosen to change her baby's name and had been met with criticism, which had left her feeling confused. 2Mum holding young babyCredit: Getty She said: “I changed my baby's name from Ralph to Huxley when he was six months old. I just felt his name didn't fit. I was quite surprised at the reaction I got from family and friends. Has anyone else done this or is thinking about doing this?”  It seems that the reason the mum felt compelled to change her son’s name was because she struggled to pronounce it properly.  The woman, who posts on Mumsnet as Lenac, commented explaining that: “I just think if you are unsure about your child's name you should do something about it.” The woman got lots of replies, with one user commenting: “I would be really surprised at someone doing this to be honest - never come across...

AP Photo/Matthias Schrader Simone Biles recently shared that she goes to therapy, despite initially resisting it.

"Angry, sad, upset, happy, annoyed," she told Glamour for a recent cover story. "I got to go through all of it by myself, without anybody telling me what to feel." At first, the 24-year-old Olympic gymnast filled her newfound free time with self-care.

Even though she felt depressed and at one point considered dropping out of the Tokyo Olympics,...
    'If the freedom of speech is taken away,' said America's first president George Washington, 'then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.' His view was shared by Thomas Jefferson, a fellow Founding Father and America's third president, who declared: 'Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.' These two men helped create the initial United States Constitution and subsequent Bill of Rights that included the First Amendment which was specifically designed to protect the very freedoms they were referring to. That Amendment states: 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.' They are arguably the most important words in the entire Constitution and have afforded Americans, and American journalists, the most powerful protection for their rights to freedom of speech and expression of any country in the world.

    Joe Biden campaigned for president on a vow to raise taxes for the rich and corporations so that they’d pay their “fair share” — a vow that made some affluent families game out various investment and estate planning scenarios. That pledge was premised on a “blue wave” where Democrats kept the House of Representatives and established a newfound majority in the Senate, which would go along with tax hikes. One week after Election Day, Biden is the projected winner in the presidential race. Yet Republican Senators fill 50 Senate seats and Democrats have 48 (including two independents who caucus with them). A Jan. 5 runoff elections for Georgia’s two spots. Democrats will keep control of the House of Representatives, albeit in a smaller margin after GOP candidates flipped several seats. So what does this political churn mean for families thinking about their tax bill in a Biden era? Not as much as a clear Democrat sweep, some observers say, but still possibly plenty — like more audits for the rich, Internal Revenue Service rule changes...
    (CNN)They say bad things happen in threes. That held true for me when I wrapped up a busy and chaotic two days covering Hurricane Zeta.No, it wasn't the storm that dealt me a one-two-three punch. It was a series of racist encounters that knocked me off my feet.Like many people of Asian descent in America, I have been targeted with cruel playground taunts as a child and continue to face racist or ignorant comments from strangers as an adult. Sadly, that's nothing new. In fact, I can confidently say it is part of the Asian American experience. Nothing could have prepared me, however, for the succession of ignorance and hate I encountered on Thursday.Here's what happened. As I was walking through New Orleans' international airport to catch my flight home, an older man who was walking past me stopped in his tracks, lowered his mask, and said, "Ni Hao. Ching Chong." "Ni hao" means hello in Chinese. Never mind that I'm of Korean descent. "Ching Chong," of course, is a racial slur that has been used to mock Asian Americans...
    Priority #1 for progressives this fall is beating Donald Trump, but priority #1A is taking back the Senate. That’s why Daily Kos is proud to announce we’re endorsing a trio of candidates who are running to unseat vulnerable Republican senators in November: Steve Bullock in Montana, Theresa Greenfield in Iowa, and Jon Ossoff in Georgia. If Joe Biden prevails but Sen. Mitch McConnell clings to his gavel, we’ll be in for at least two more years of extremist bad faith obstruction of literally everything Democrats might hope to accomplish. This we cannot let happen. Our country is in dire straits and demands a new direction. It’s up to us to make sure we can start turning around our ship of state come January. In spite of everything, however, Trump’s towering malfeasance has brought us a ray of good news by putting Republicans on defense everywhere. That means the GOP is suddenly forced to worry about Senate seats in red states—seats they were sure wouldn’t be at risk. But the tides have shifted dramatically, and a whole boatload of...
