    President Joe Biden assured the people of Puerto Rico on Monday that 'all of America is with you' as the island struggles to cope with the damage from Hurricane Fiona. 'We came here in person to show that we're with you. All of America is with you as you receive and recover and rebuild,' he said during a visit to Ponce, Puerto Rico, with first lady Jill Biden and FEMA administrator Deanne Criswell. Biden vowed to deliver quick assistance to the island, where tens of thousands of people still don't have power after Fiona struck the island on Sept. 18. 'We work together to help rebuild Puerto Rico and I mean, rebuild it all. And rebuild it in a resilient way so you know when the storms come again, which they will, they're not having the damage they caused before,' he said. He noted he was 'confident' that he can meet Governor Pedro Pierluisi's request to extend major disaster declaration for 180 days. Power has been restored to about 90% of the U.S. territory of 3.2 million people, 44% of whom live below...
    Former President Donald Trump is beefing up his legal team as he digs in for a long fight against the government over documents the FBI seized during its raid of Mar-a-Lago earlier this month. The former president, who spent Tuesday in a tweet storm attacking the FBI after calling for a rerun of the 2020 election, has hired Chris Kise, a former Florida solicitor general. Kise advised Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis during his transition, a role he also filled for former Gov. Rick Scott. SeDantis is considered a top potential Trump rival for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. The news of the hire, reported first by NBC, comes, comes as the Justice Department prepares to file a lengthy legal opinion blasting Trump's push for a 'special master' to sort through his claims of executive privilege over 15 boxes of documents he returned from his private Florida club. The network reported that the newest member of Trump's legal team has developed a 'reputation as a skilled political knife fighter.' The hire comes after US District Judge Eileen Cannon over the weekend signaled...
    IT was exactly six months ago that Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine. The Russkies had assured us and the Ukrainians — and their own people — they had no intention of invading. 8Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine exactly six months agoCredit: Reuters 8Ukraine's straight-talking President Volodymyr ZelenskyCredit: EPA As with pretty much everything else, they lied.

    Former White House communications director Alyssa Farah Griffin said on CNN today that the Department of Justice may have “handed” Donald Trump the Republican nomination and possibly the presidency in 2024 with its FBI raid of the former president’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Fla. “This, I’m hoping, goes beyond simply not complying with some archiving laws, or DOJ just handed Donald Trump the Republican nominee and potentially the presidency,” she said while appearing in a segment with New Day’s John Berman and Brianna Keilar. “If it’s seen as some sort of massive overreach and not something incredibly serious, this is a very good day for Donald Trump.” The search warrant, which was executed on Monday, came as part of an investigation into Trump’s handling of presidential documents, including classified material, according to CNN and Politico. Trump broke the news himself on his Truth Social channel, saying that his “beautiful home” was “currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.” Trump also added that these are “dark times” for our country and complained that the...
    Donald Trump has plans to purge the so-called 'deep state' beyond what any president has done before if he runs for and wins the presidency in 2024 and as many as 50,000 government workers could find themselves on the chopping block.  The former president, if elected again, would move in with a plan being drawn up now to 'drain the swamp' and cut tens of thousands of civil servants from what are typically apolitical roles, according to an Axios report.  He would clean house of mid-level staffers at the Pentagon, Justice Department, State Department and beyond and bring in thoroughly vetted candidates who were found to be more closely aligned with his 'America First' agenda.   After interviews with over a dozen Trump-world insiders the outlet's investigation found that Trump is planning to use an executive order called 'Schedule F,' which he issued in October 2020 and Biden later rescinded.  The order would reclassify tens of thousands of civil servants who were deemed to have some influence over policy as 'Schedule F' employees, which would strip them of their employment protections. ...
    ALTHOUGH people spend time in their bathrooms many times throughout the week, bathrooms can become neglected and quickly turn into cluttered messes. With the right approach, you can organize your bathroom and turn it into your own spa-like sanctuary. Here are a few steps to get you started. 9There are several smart ways to make sure your bathroom stays as organized as possibleCredit: Getty Reduce the clutter Most bathrooms in the UK are small and have limited storage space.

    HGTV Alison Victoria, Ty Pennington, Taniya Nayak, and Bryan and Sarah Baeumler star in season 2 of “Battle on the Beach.” The battle is about to begin! Ty Pennington returns as a mentor on “Battle on the Beach” and, as the HGTV star told Heavy, it will be one dramatic season. “It’s funny, we may not be Bravo, but there’s going to be some drama this season,” he explained to Heavy. Speaking of his team, he explained, “It’s interesting because you just you sort of never know-how, how a team’s going to work communication-wise. And we pulled off some incredible stuff. But I have to say, there’s going to be some moments where communication really is key.” The “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” alum took away some lessons from last season, explaining, “If it can go wrong, it will go wrong.” “I also learned that you know, as a designer, you want to be able to save the day, but as a mentor, all you can do is also voice your opinion and sort of persuade and really try...
    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks stated that “Western Europe is not just following the U.S.” in pushing back against Russian aggression, and “in many important ways, they’re leading the way.” Brooks said, “Well, the U.S. and the West are hanging in quite well, I think. We continue to increase the amount of arms we’re giving to Ukraine. Europe, in a move that is really stunning to me, is trying to wean itself off Russian oil and natural gas. And so, the alliance has held, and, if anything, it’s getting firmer. But…some say there are two wars.” He continued, “There’s a northern war around Kyiv, where the Ukrainians are doing very well. There’s a southern war on the border, mostly over the port of Odessa. And the Russians are doing much better in that southern war. And so, if they can capture Odessa, which is the main port, then they really will have strangled the Ukrainian economy. And if they can keep that territory, that amounts to some sort of victory. So, it’s become very important...
    THERE was something very old school about that brawl in the tunnel after Manchester City’s Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid. And it was impressive to see an old pro like Scott Carson in the thick of it all, ‘offering out’ an Atletico defender. 5Tempers flared between Manchester City and Atletico Madrid on WednesdayCredit: Getty 5At least one Atleti player appeared to spit at the City groupCredit: Twitter 5Troy Deney enjoyed seeing the aggro - and was reminded of his own scrapsCredit: The Sun Scott, like me, will be able to remember the days when a bundle in the tunnel was far more commonplace than it is now. And I think it said a lot about City’s togetherness that their third-choice keeper, who knows he is never likely to play, is so fully involved with getting stuck in on behalf of his team-mates. It made me suspect that they might go on and win the Treble, with that sort of team spirit. Atletico looked like a team who knew City had better players than them and had set out to...

    Former Attorney General Bill Barr said Friday on CNN’s “The Lead” that he would oppose former President Donald Trump in the 2024 Republican primary. Tapper said, “You definitely write that something changed after the election. He went off the rails. You write that you were disgusted by things he said or did. You said he took a dangerous turn after the election, significantly detached from reality. His constant bellicosity diminishes him in the office. In the spring of 2020, you said he was acting like a hyperactive maniac. You say he doesn’t have the temperament to lead the country going forward.” Barr said, “He’s not my idea of a president, and I felt he would lose the election because he was not controlling himself. He was allowing his pettiness to come through. I feel it is one of his great failings. I think a lot of people agree with his policies. They like his strength and directness, but to the extent they support him, it is despite this obnoxious behavior. It is not because of it.” Tapper said, “Your book...
    Bill Barr, who served as attorney general under President Trump Donald, continued his media tour on Friday promoting his new book. Barr appeared on CNN for an extensive interview in which Jake Tapper grilled him over his role in perpetuating Trump’s so-called “big lie” that the 2020 presidential election was stolen and pressed Barr on whether or not he would support another Trump run at the White House. “If Trump runs, would you get involved in the primary fight to defeat him?” Tapper asked at one point. “Absolutely,” Barr quickly responded. “Yes,” Barr added. “I think the coming presidential election would be a good opportunity for the Republican Party. From my standpoint, the progressive left is sort of showing sort of a totalitarian temperament and I think the Republicans can win a decisive majority.” “But I don’t think we can do it with Trump. He’s just too divisive a candidate,” Barr concluded. Tapper pressed Barr if there were other candidates he would support. Barr responded saying that there were a few, but that he would let them “run around the...
    First they think you’re crazy. Then they fight you. Then all of a sudden you change the world. Well, at the very least you become the fascination of a society gaga for stories about scammers, capture the interest of Hollywood, and become the subject of several extremely high-profile TV and film projects, at least one of which—Hulu’s new series The Dropout—we can now say is quite good. Those first three sentences were actually spoken by Elizabeth Holmes and are now an indelible part of her notoriety. Holmes is the disgraced founder of Theranos, a company that frantically deceived its way to a $9 billion valuation and turned her, the youngest self-made female billionaire, into a tech star and—this not hyperbole—a global savior. The promise was a revolutionary blood testing method that would use just one small finger prick; the reality was that, outside of the truth that this technology could be game-changing, it didn’t work and she and her company were massive frauds. But what makes Holmes such a captivating figure is that the first two sentences of that infamous...
    The View panel criticized Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Monday for posing maskless in front of masked school kids last week. “Some Georgia Republicans are calling Stacey Abrams a hypocrite for being unmasked in a photo with school kids during a visit for Black History Month. She’s calling them shameful for using a black history month event to stage a false political attack and it’s just a distraction from their failures to protect people during the pandemic,” said View co-host Joy Behar. “But my question to this panel is shouldn’t she have read the room there? I’m a little bit shocked because Stacey Abrams to me is one of the most intelligent people in politics.” “Brilliant,” said co-host Sunny Hostin. “And she kind of slipped up here,” said Behar. “They took a picture of her with these kids without a mask, giving aid and comfort to the other side. That’s what she did.” “And I’m surprised at her, to tell you the truth,” she added. “That she would slip up.” Hostin lamented: Why do that? Why give the Right more ammunition? I mean, they always go after her anyway, and I think it was really hypocritical actually. First, her statement. First of all, this has...
    HOVERING over the “buy now” button, I asked myself the usual question: “Do I really need this?” It was the January sales and I was lusting after a chocolate-brown leather pencil skirt from Sosandar. 9I’m a double-dress shopper like Kate Middleton - buying the same item in different colours is THE way to sort your wardrobe and it’s the ultimate money saver tooCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd. 9Kate Middleton wore a red Catherine Walker coat dress to a carol service at Westminster Abbey in December - she wore the same piece in black to Prince Philip’s funeral last AprilCredit: Reuters It was a great buy, a timeless wardrobe staple versatile enough for both work and play.

    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner dinged controversial Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo on Monday night after Ladapo made some remarks about Covid-19 testing. In October, Ladapo raised doubt about Covid vaccines, stating, “We don’t know all there is to know.” “We’re going to be working to unwind the, sort of, testing psychology that our federal leadership has managed to – unfortunately – get most of the country in over the last two years,” said Ladapo at a press conference on Monday. “We need to unwind this testing, sort of, planning on living one’s life around testing. Without it, we’re gonna be sort of stuck in the same cycle.” Erin Burnett pointed out Ladapo’s comments reflect many people’s frustration with various Covid protocols. “Does he have a point?” she asked. “And if not, why?” “No,” replied Reiner. “In fact, it’s hard to believe those comments came from the surgeon general of one of the largest states in this country. And his words echo what the former president of the United States Donald Trump said in June of 2020 when he...
    While social media has become a driving force for political elections, a new analysis raises questions about its impact on politics, as a whole. Politico Playbook co-author Eugene Daniels and deputy editor Zack Stanton recently participated in a discussion with Republican strategist Eric Wilson, Zach Graumann, Andrew Yang's former campaign manager, and Pew Research Center’s Datalab director, Aaron Smith where they discussed the position of social media and how it has contributed to the evolution of politics. "We know that most voters are more active on Facebook, said Wilson. "So what's happening on Twitter is primarily performative for journalists, influencers, opinion makers, and other elected officials that you may need to win over — or politicians — in order to break through on Twitter. Wilson added, "You have to sort of try and become the main character for the day. So if you're playing that sort of status game, then that's the objective, particularly in light of restrictions from Twitter on political advertising.” Graumann also detailed the hurdles he faced in determining Yang's audience in the...

    Maxwell Caulfield may be a cult legend for his role in "Empire Records," but his throngs of fans on social media came after he fought through heartbreak in his early career. The 61-year-old actor recalled to Page Six what it was like to be set up for stardom at an early age when he was cast in the lead to the sequel to "Grease" — only to temporarily sink into oblivion when the movie tanked. "It was, psychologically, quite a kick in the pants," he said. The bitter taste of watching 1982’s "Grease 2" fail was made even worse by seeing his co-star, a then-little-known actress named Michelle Pfeiffer, head on to stardom, he said. 'SILENCE OF THE LAMBS' 'EVIL' SCRIPT MADE MICHELLE PFEIFFER PASS ON ROLE, ACTRESS SAYS "And of course, Michelle rose like a Phoenix, right?

    There is no telling if any of the players the Jets draft this week will be any good in the NFL. However, if they one day want to work in sports media, they will be picked by the right team. The Jets are the worldwide leader in producing football analysts – especially at ESPN. The network has around 20 full-time studio analysts, and one out of every four is a former Jet.

    Democrats and Republicans alike are demanding President Joe Biden address the border situation with a pair of bipartisan lawmakers joining forces to demand a billion-dollar fix to the migrant surge.  The mounting pressure comes as a new video shows migrants crammed into makeshift shelters under a Texas bridge and a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol video showed two toddlers being dropped over a 14-foot-high section of the border wall.  Meanwhile, border Patrol agents are on pace for more than 1 million migrant encounters this year, more than double the 458,088 total encounters in 2020. 'Based upon what we've already apprehended and looking at what's remaining in the fiscal year, that we will have approximately about a million apprehensions or encounters this year,' Deputy Chief of U.S. Border Patrol Raul Ortiz told CBS' 'Evening News.'

    Earlier this year, Star Wars ventured into one of the few completely unexplored sections of its timeline with the new High Republic publishing initiative. The first book, Light of the Jedi introduced us to the time period between the Old Republic — which isn’t quite official Disney canon yet — and the Sith’s return in the prequel movies we’re all familiar with. In Light of the Jedi, a transporter vessel called the Legacy Run is destroyed during hyperspace travel, sending pieces of the ship all through the galaxy and putting planets in apocalyptic danger. This event was known as the Great Disaster, and seems to be one of the defining moments of the High Republic. But while Light of the Jedi showed us some firsthand accounts of Jedi responding to the disaster, the newly released second novel in the High Republic series, Into the Dark, shows us just how large an impact the ship collision and the minefield that is now hyperspace will have on the entire galaxy. In Into the Dark, veteran Star Wars author Claudia Gray...

So I’ve had a tight ball of anxiety in my stomach and a feeling of being overwhelmed. But I am very well aware that I’m one of the lucky ones. I’m still working and so far this vile virus has not claimed the life of anyone I know well, although it’s come all too ­horribly close. I cannot even begin to ­imagine what it...

    MIKE TYSON has revealed he would deal with boxer Ryan Garcia 'in the streets' if he was on the end of the trash talk that has been thrown at Gervonta Davis. Lightweight Garcia called out 'Tank' Davis after he stopped Britain's Luke Campbell in the seventh round of their explosive fight in Texas earlier this month. 3Garcia announced himself as one of the hottest prospects in US boxing with his win over CampbellCredit: Getty Images - Getty 'King Ryan' went on Tyson's podcast after his win and proceeded to FaceTime Davis on the show, an altercation which led to them reaching a verbal agreement to fight each other next. And Tyson has now insisted that Davis has no choice but to fight Garcia. Speaking about Garcia's trash talk, he told Brendan Schaub on BELOW THE BELT on YouTube: "Cause he’s done humiliated this guy.

    “We have this mantra on my show: Increase the amount of useful information in the world,” Rachel Maddow said of her MSNBC show, which has flourished as must-watch programming for liberals in the Trump era, in our exclusive interview. But the program has a different formula than most of what you see on cable: “That means don’t book liars, don’t show fighting for the sake of fighting.” The Rachel Maddow Show, which airs at 9 p.m. on MSNBC, averaged more than three million viewers a night in 2020, as her prodigiously loyal audience tuned in for her nightly take on the 2020 race and the subsequent chaos of the election. Maddow’s success comes at a time of uncertainty for the cable news industry. President Donald Trump has dominated the news for the last five years, fueling a ratings boom for cable news networks suddenly thrust at the center of the biggest story in the world. Now that the Trump administration is coming to a predictably chaotic close, cable news executives are concerned about what comes next. Rachel Maddow —...
    (CNN)The stars of "Saved by the Bell" are going back to school in a new version of the teen series coming to Peacock, and Elizabeth Berkley Lauren isn't mincing her words on how she feels about it. "I am so excited -- pun intended -- to get to share this with the world," Berkley Lauren, who played Jessie Spano over the lifetime of the original series and reprises her character on the streaming version, told CNN recently. "This show has been a beloved show for so many years and to bring it back with this new cast and the OGs, this is a gift, for sure. I can't wait to share it." The new show reimagines the '90s comedy staple with a new cast of young people to follow, among them children of characters from the original -- like Mack Morris (Mitchell Hoog), son of Zack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and Kelly (Tiffani Thiessen), and Jamie Spano (Belmont Cameli), Jessie's son. The series focuses on the cultural clash between privileged Baysiders and a crop of new students from under-funded districts affected by...
    Scientists have found that robotic vacuum cleaners could allow snoopers to remotely listen in to household conversations, despite not being fitted with microphones.  US experts found they can perform a remote eavesdropping attack on a Xiaomi Roborock robot cleaner by remotely accessing its Lidar readings – which helps these cleaners to avoid bumping into furniture.  Lidar is a method for measuring distances by illuminating the target with laser beams and measuring their reflection with a sensor.  But Lidar can also capture sound signals by obtaining reflections off of objects in the home, like a rubbish bin, that vibrate due to nearby sound sources, such as a person talking.  A hacker could repurpose a vacuum's Lidar sensor to sense acoustic signals in the environment, remotely harvest the Lidar data from the cloud and process the raw signal with deep learning techniques to extract audio information.      This flaw could reveal the gender of a robot vacuum cleaner in the home, confidential business information from a teleconferencing meeting or credit card information recited during a phone call.  It could also allow hackers to listen to...
    On October 19, Governor Jared Polis's office, the Colorado Restaurant Association, and assorted design and architecture groups will hold a workshop/charrette to explore creative ways to extend outdoor dining in Colorado this winter. Xcel will help fund installing some of the ideas that emerge from that event. But some eateries aren't waiting. As the weather gets chillier, they're modifying their patios right now. My Brother's Bar, for example, has put in private plastic dining domes, and other spots have come up with equally creative ideas. In Facebook comments on Mark Antonation's story about outside dining, readers applaud their efforts. Says Melanie: I am here for it! This looks fun and new, and bring me the Sunday brunch igloos all day! Bottom line, this is what it is right now. They are doing their best and hospitality needs this! They deserve it! Whoever has the best music and food and some sort of outdoor option and doesn't make an announcement about is a rotten egg!!!! Responds Gloria: Agreed! I saw these at a restaurant downtown already, but...
    It’s not Oscar Night, but for beer geeks across the country, tonight's live-streamed Great American Beer Festival awards ceremony will showcase plenty of red carpet-worthy drama. In the past, that drama could include not just which breweries won what awards, but who got cheered, who got booed, who got down on one knee for a marriage proposal and who would open their shirt to reveal a political message of some sort.This year, the awards won't be in person as the festival portion of the event was canceled — and there will be no Charlie Papazian doling out fist bumps — but there will still be an award ceremony and it will still be interesting to watch; the live stream is available on the the Brewing Network. Here are ten reasons to watch the awards ceremony, and if you need a little a little socialization, there are at least a half-dozen local breweries that will be showing the broadcast on their taproom TVs beginning at 5 p.m. See the list in this week's Beer Calendar.Related Stories After a Down Year,...
    The fatal shooting of Lee Keltner and the arrest of Matthew Dolloff on suspicion of first-degree murder following dueling demonstrations at Civic Center Park on October 10, has put 9News in the sort of awkward position broadcast outlets seek to avoid: being the story rather than covering it. The station had contracted with Dolloff to provide security for a crew assigned to the afternoon events: a so-called Patriot Muster involving ultra-conservative, pro-police forces and a BLM-Antifa soup drive scheduled around the same time as a way of countering the other group's messaging. Soon after Dolloff's arrest, the city reported that he was not licensed as a security guard in Denver; now, 9News says that its employees had no idea he was packing heat. The station has also released two new videos, including one showing an argument between Keltner and a Black Lives Matter protester in the moments before the shooting.Related Stories "Mace Me, Motherf*cker" Video and Post-Protest Killing Media Frenzy How Patriot Muster-BLM Soup Drive Demonstrations Went to Hell BLM Event v.

    'Tis the season for publications and websites to let us know whether we should feel good about where we live. And U.S. News & World Report's just-released roster should give those who reside in Boulder and Denver, as well as Coloradans in general, a warm glow. The outlet's "150 Best Places to Live in the U.S. in 2020-21" ranks Boulder first and Denver second — and as a bonus, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins finish in fourth and fifth place, respectively. The only other city to squeeze into the top five is Austin, Texas, with the six-through-ten slots occupied by Charlotte, North Carolina; Des Moines, Iowa; Fayetteville, Arkansas; Portland, Oregon, and San Francisco, California. The many lists of this sort seldom agree with each other. For example, Money magazine recently dubbed Parker the second-best place to live in the country and ranked Broomfield eighteenth — yet neither of these communities make U.S. News's top 150.Related Stories Why Parker Was Named Second-Best Place to Live in America Inside Broomfield, Colorado's Second-Best Place to Live The Seven Best Places to Live in...

    When President Donald Trump used the phrase "Stand back and stand by" in reference to the white nationalist group known as the Proud Boys during his September 29 "debate" against former Vice President Joe Biden, Susan Polis Schutz was appalled — and for good reason. The mother of Governor Jared Polis is also a filmmaker, and she's spent most of 2020 completing Love Wins Over Hate, a documentary examining the rise of racist organizations in the U.S. through conversations with former members trying to make amends for their past actions by helping others grow beyond their biases, too. The film is already appearing on PBS stations across the country and will debut on two Denver outlets in the coming days. "I'm still reeling from it," Polis Schutz says of Trump's statement. "It was a nightmare. It was so horrible.... He was trying to couch his enthusiasm for them in words you had to think about. But it was so vitriolic and mean and demeaning to the presidency and the United States." Beyond that, Polis Schutz feels that Trump's willingness to...
    Chinas growing economic and military strength can be a dilemma for U.S. investors Prescott, Hurst joining forces for suicide prevention in offseason Aaron Sorkin goes big and busy in true-life political drama The Trial of the Chicago 7: Review There are certain things the words "written and directed by Aaron Sorkin" almost seem to guarantee: Will there be a few good men, and some very bad ones too? Will it be talky and timely and speak (and speak and speak) truth to power? The Trial of the Chicago 7 (on Netflix Oct. 16) delivers exactly that sort of Sorkin-us Maximus, in both the best and worst sense — a remarkably relevant story, smartly told, but with certain blind spots and pitfalls: broad strokes, rhetorical grandstanding, the tendency to overstuff an already load-bearing tale. © Provided by Entertainment Weekly NIKO TAVERNISE/NETFLIX As a history lesson too, it plays more than a little fast and loose. But the basic, outrageous facts are there: Thousands of protesters against the war in Vietnam, many of them drafting age, flocked to the 1968 Democratic...
    Whoopi Goldberg let loose on President Donald Trump’s promise to get rioters in cities under control, saying that federal intervention amounted to “a planned attack on the American people.” Goldberg brought the topic to the table Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” questioning the Trump administration’s authority to engage with protesters in cities — particularly without the permission of local authorities. (RELATED: Whoopi Goldberg Demands Tucker Carlson Apologize For Calling Tammy Duckworth A ‘Coward’) WATCH: “Well, you know, I’ve sort of been saying this for a while that everybody needed to pay attention to the little things, you know, to the little things that are being done and, you know, where is — where is Barr?” Goldberg began, arguing that it wasn’t right for the president to simply declare that he was going to send people in. “He’s wanted a fight from the beginning, from the moment he came in, he wanted to fight somebody, and now he’s found a way to do it,” Goldberg continued. Cohost Joy Behar argued that Trump’s actions were playing right into the hands of...
    Comedian Ricky Gervais slammed rising "cancel culture," suggesting his hit show The Office never would have aired if created in 2020. "There's this new, weird sort of fascism of people thinking they know what you can say and what you can't," Gervais told talkRadio's Kevin O'Sullivan over the weekend after the host suggested the series wouldn't have gotten the green light today because of "cancel culture." "There's this new trendy myth that people who want free speech want to say awful things all the time. This just isn't true. It protects everyone." Gervais rose to fame after starring as comedic boss David Brent in the U.K. comedy The Office, which was later produced in the United States starring Steve Carell. In another recent interview with London Times Radio, the actor said the current outrage mentality would have taken a toll on the series. "I think now it would suffer because people take things literally," he said. "There’s these outrage mobs who take things out of context. This was a show about everything. It was about difference, it was about...
    A Minnesota business owner described Wednesday what it was like barricading himself in a bathroom as looters broke in and ransacked his store, telling “America’s Newsroom” that “it sort of felt like a movie.” Jim Segal, the owner of Ax-Man Surplus in St. Paul, said he recently reopened his store after being closed for about seven weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic when looters targeted it and stole thousands of dollars in merchandise. Segal said he was inside the store when looters broke in last week. “We understood there was some unrest in the area. I made the decision to close our shop and send our customers and employees home and I stayed back to do some work in my office,” he explained. “And at some point, I heard a loud noise in the store, I actually thought it was a car coming through the window, but turned out it was people.” “There was a lot of noise and mayhem and luckily I was locked in the office with a steel door,” he continued. “They weren't able to breach that door. I locked myself in a bathroom and called 911.” ...
