    Kanye West said social media could be used for harm or good in his first interview since his unhinged Instagram tirade against ex-wife Kim Kardashian last month, where he claimed she controlled their children's lives and likened himself to a sperm donor.  The rapper - who now goes by the name Ye - was interviewed by ABC News' Live Prime anchor Linsey Davis. A portion of the interview aired on Good Morning America on Thursday, but the full sit-down will air tonight at 8.30pm.  The 45-year-old was asked first whether he believes social media is of hurtful or beneficial to him.  Smiling, he replied: 'That's one of my favorite questions of this interview.  'I mean, we can use a car to rush somebody to the hospital or we can use a car and accidentally hit somebody while we're rushing somebody to the hospital. So it's all in how we use it.'  The rapper - who now goes by the name Ye - was interviewed by ABC News' Live Prime anchor Linsey Davis. A portion of the interview aired on Good...
    The campaign finance watchdog group Campaign Legal Center has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission accusing the National Republican Senatorial Committee of illegally misappropriating funds meant for legal expenditures to purchase political ads. The move comes as the GOP and Democratic Party duke it out for control of the United States Senate in the November midterms. Democrats, who have a one-seat majority because of Vice President Kamala Harris' authority to break ties, are favored to retain control of the upper congressional chamber. "The Senate Republican campaign arm paid for $1 million in political advertising using money that, under campaign finance law, is meant to be for legal expenses. The spending, which appears to have been used for ads in the Senate races in Colorado and Washington State, is part of more than $3 million in media-related spending through the Republican committee’s legal fund, according to federal filings in 2021 and 2022," according to Wednesday's New York Times, in which correspondents Shane Goldmacher and Reid J. Epstein mentioned that End Citizens United joined CLC in its filing. READ...
    A suspected Philadelphia area drug dealer is facing multiple charges after being busted with a stockpile of guns, drugs, and stolen cars, authorities said. Joseph “Joey” Scott, of Middletown Township, was charged Thursday, Sept. 15 with several drug and weapons offenses and sent to the Bucks County Correctional Facility on $1 million bail, according to the Bucks County District Attorney's Office. Local and state authorities recovered 10 handguns — including two illegally modified to be fully automatic — a bulletproof vest, ammunition, five stolen cars, crystal methamphetamine, and other drugs during the search of the 37-year-old man's Durham Road home and two storage units in Philadelphia. An investigation into Scott was launched in August after two Philadelphia police officers received information that Scott was distributing crystal methamphetamine and fentanyl pills in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. Police were also warned that Scott drove various vehicles, possessed several firearms, and was known to always carry a concealed gun, they said. Scott was apparently prone to violence, even being rumored to have shot several people, according to a criminal complaint.  As a result, police conducted surveillance and organized three drug buys...
    A well-known South Carolina cheerleading coach killed himself after learning he faced a criminal probe for sexually abusing underage male and female cheerleaders. The estate of Scott Foster now faces a civil lawsuit over the same allegations, with his estranged wife Kathy and his company Rockstar Cheer among those named as defendants.

    Disgraced Broadway producer Scott Rudin shocked the cast and crew of the hit play To Kill a Mockingbird by announcing that the show would not return to Broadway despite it bringing in $2 million-a-week in ticket sales. Rudin owns the rights to the stage version of Harper Lee's iconic novel, which has been a hit since it was adapted for the stage by writer Aaron Sorkin in 2018.  Showbiz411's Roger Friedman was the first to report on the development, citing a source who said that Rudin 'has never gone away.'  Rudin has faced numerous allegations of bullying and accused of mistreating people beyond the scenes of his productions. There had been 'a long negotiation to turn the production over to other producers.' Those negotiations apparently failed. Rudin officially stepped away from an active role in the show in 2021 following the accusations. He also resigned from the Broadway League. The producer also stepped away from numerous film projects - but has now exerted his control over the play he maintains the rights to.  Among those who expressed their surprise and outrage...

    HOUSTON (AP) — Attorneys for some of those killed and injured during last year’s deadly Astroworld music festival alleged in court on Monday that rapper Travis Scott has violated a gag order issued in lawsuits they have filed in an effort to influence possible jurors and rebuild his reputation ahead of a potential trial. At issue is an announcement Scott made earlier this month about Project HEAL, a $5 million initiative that includes funding for an effort to address safety challenges for festivals and large-scale events. Houston police and federal officials have been investigating whether Scott, concert promoter Live Nation and others had put in place sufficient safety measures. “My team and I created Project HEAL to take much needed action towards supporting real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be. I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever,” Scott wrote earlier this month on Instagram after the initiative was announced. But Bob Hilliard, one of the attorneys representing the family of 9-year-old Ezra Blount, the...
    REDWOOD CITY – A former juror in Scott Peterson’s 2004 murder trial defiantly maintained on the witness stand Friday that she had never been a victim of domestic violence and didn’t lie about her past to become a stealth juror to get seated on the high-profile case. Instead, she testified it was she who had been the aggressor with her former boyfriend in a fight a couple years earlier, before she filled out a courthouse questionnaire and was chosen for the jury. “We went to our bedroom. I closed the door and I took off on him,” Richelle Nice testified Friday – the first day of an anticipated weeklong hearing on Peterson’s quest for a new trial. “I punched him. I hit him and he called the police on me.” She had a bloody cut on her lip when police arrived, she said, but that was from yelling at him through her braces, which often caught her lip. “I was not a victim of domestic violence,” she said. Whether Peterson’s murder convictions for the killings of his pregnant wife, Laci,...
    A Kansas man accused of threatening to assassinate President Joe Biden is a former Army paratrooper who suffers crippling PTSD from his service in Afghanistan, where he was involved in a “chaotic” firefight in which he accidentally killed a young child standing next to a Taliban fighter. That’s according to new court filings reviewed by The Daily Beast, which offer additional insight into the alleged threats. Scott Ryan Merryman, 37, was arrested last month after claiming he had been instructed by God to “lop off the head of the serpent in the heart of the nation,” which allegedly meant murdering Biden by delivering a “fatal head wound,” states a criminal complaint filed Jan. 28 in Baltimore federal court. Merryman, who now works as a construction contractor, was intercepted by the Secret Service in the parking lot of a Hagerstown, Maryland, Cracker Barrel, where he informed agents he “had to deliver a message to President Biden, and advise him that people were fed up with the divisiveness in the country and to turn back to God (or go to hell),” the...

    (CNN)The allegations are striking.Earlier this month, the wife of Sean Parnell, who is running for the Senate from Pennsylvania with the backing of Donald Trump, provided sworn testimony in a child custody hearing that he had "choked her until she bit him to escape, that he hit their young children, and that he lashed out at her with obscenities and insults," according to a report in The Philadelphia Inquirer.Parnell called his wife's testimony "lies" in a statement released by his campaign and said he would rebut her claims in his testimony, which is expected this week.

    Mayoral hopeful Scott Stringer is being accused of hypocrisy for having ripped public figures over the sex-harassment claims against them — while saying he deserves the benefit of the doubt in his own case. Stringer issued scathing statements in 2018 saying he believed the accuser who claimed then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.

    A fellow candidate for Big Apple mayor charged Friday that embattled city Comptroller Scott Stringer is running a “smear campaign” against his sexual harassment accuser. Maya Wiley leveled the allegation against Stringer as the comptroller’s campaign accused Jean Kim — the woman who went public with the bombshell claims of sexual harassment — of working for another rival, Democratic mayoral frontrunner Andrew Yang. “The smear campaign Scott Stringer is running against Jean Kim is obvious, disgusting, & a clear effort to intimidate someone who bravely came forward to tell a credible story of her sexual assault,” she tweeted. Wiley sent the message as Stringer’s campaign pointed to signatures Kim gathered for a slate of four candidates, including Yang, as proof of the relationship and continued their aggressive push to cast doubts over her allegations of misbehavior by Stringer, in which she said he groped her multiple times in 2001, when she says she was working as an unpaid intern on his failed campaign for public advocate. “Ms. Kim’s attorney was asked if Ms. Kim worked for any other campaigns against...

    More than 100 Broadway and theater actors, staff and workers marched in protest Thursday, calling the full resignation of Scott Rudin and demanded additional diversity in the industry. Rudin, an award-winning film, television and theater producer, is accused of bullying and harassing employees. "We want to shut Scott Rudin out of the Broadway League," Nattalyee Randall, march co-organizer, told CBS New York, referring to theater's biggest union. Rudin stepped back from his current and upcoming Broadway and film projects, including the highly-anticipated Broadway revival of "The Music Man" starring Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster. This comes after accusations of bullying, harassment and abuse by current and former employees that were detailed in a recent expose published in the Hollywood Reporter.   Last week, Rudin announced his decision and apologized in a statement to CBS News. "After a period of reflection, I've made the decision to step back from active participation on our Broadway productions, effective immediately. My roles will be filled by others from the Broadway community and in a number of cases, from the roster of participants already in place...
