    Getty Steelers QB Mitch Trubisky talks with OC Matt Canada. A lot has changed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but also not really. The offense continues to struggle, only this time with a different quarterback. Similar to 2021, fans and media debate who should take the blame — the quarterback, the offensive coordinator or both. The common denominator over two seasons is offensive coordinator Matt Canada. Sure, it’s only Week 3, and the Steelers are 1-1, but things are not headed in the right direction. Aggressive. It’s a word that quarterback Mitch Trubisky has used the most since his first regular season press conference. Yet it’s what the offense lacks the most. Through nine quarters of football, Pittsburgh’s 30th in the NFL in total yards per game (255) and it’s 36 points-scored are good for 29th in the league, per NFL.com. “We haven’t scored enough points here the last couple weeks,” Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said in a Sept. 19 press conference. “But that’s a collective. Not just the quarterback position. Not just the players. It’s all of us...
    New York Attorney General Letitia James had been speaking live for about 10 minutes on Wednesday morning about the state’s massive fraud lawsuit against Donald Trump, his adult children, and their business organization when Fox News made the abrupt decision to cut away. James was just starting to lay out the specifics of the Trump family’s alleged crimes when “straight news” anchor Harris Faulker broke in to tell viewers the news likely did not concern them. “Some of this is really inside baseball unless it’s your tax dollars in New York,” Faulkner said. “And some may even accuse it of being political because we’re 48 days before the midterm elections.” She then added, without explanation: “And both presidents, the current and the past, are certainly being looked at to help candidates out.” Faulkner promised that Fox News is “certainly going to cover” the lawsuit moving forward and would bring “highlights” to viewers as they happen. “But the big headline in all of this is the lawsuit by the state of New York just announced by Letitia James,” she continued before...
    Michigan GOP gubernatorial nominee Tudor Dixon gave the media her definition of pornography during a bizarre press conference on Tuesday.  Dixon, 45, went on to offer to send some examples of pornography to the reporter.  Her remarks came amid a battle in Michigan over what texts are suitable for students in the state's public schools. The press conference was held on the steps of the Michigan Department of Education headquarters in Lansing. Dixon also said that she would be in favor of a statewide ban on books that were deemed to be pornographic.  The Donald Trump-backed nominee was asked by a reporter: 'Can you define what pornographic means for you in terms of books in K-12 schools?' The part-time actor answered: 'Do you need me to define pornographic?' According to her IMDb page, Dixon has appeared in several horror movies such as Buddy BeBop vs the Living Dead and Inception of Chaos.  She continued: 'So, there's two naked people and they are acting out a sexual act – multiple different sexual acts. Do you want me to send you some so...
    Getty 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan (L) defended his play calling by comparing his usage of Trey Lance to Buffalo's quarterback Josh Allen (R). The Buffalo Bills had a rest day on Sunday since they are scheduled to take on the Tennesee Titans on Monday Night Football in Week 2, but that didn’t stop the team and how they utilize quarterback Josh Allen from becoming a hot topic of debate. During the opening quarter of the San Francisco 49ers‘ matchup against the Seattle Seahawks on September 18, quarterback Trey Lance ran the ball up the middle before falling awkwardly on his right leg, suffering what head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed during the postgame press conference as a season-ending injury.

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi drew some laughs with a wisecrack mocking Republicans over some of their beliefs about abortion and when life begins. South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham held a press conference Tuesday to roll out legislation that would ban all abortions after 15 weeks, with conditional exceptions for cases of rape, incest, and risk to the life of the mother. On Wednesday afternoon, Pelosi held her weekly press conference, at which Graham’s bill was a hot topic. Pelosi tore into the GOP over the ban during her opening remarks, and when she was asked a question about it, went in some more. When Pelosi cracked that some Republicans “think life begins at the candlelight dinner the night before,” laughter could be heard in the press gallery, and another burst a few seconds later when the joke sank in: REPORTER: On abortion, Senator Graham introduced the 15-week national ban. SPEAKER PELOSI: Yeah. REPORTER: What does it tell you that the reaction from at least most of the Republican senators has been muted or just to say that this should be a state’s issue?...

    Annett Kontaveit left her media obligations with tears in her eyes following the second-round loss to Serena Williams at the US Open on Wednesday night.  The Estonian world No. 2 couldn't contain her emotions any longer, beginning to cry when asked a question by a reporter in her native tongue. 'I mean, it was hard … it was something I never experienced before,' she said.  The 26-year-old was gracious in her assessment of the pro-Williams crowd inside Arthur Ashe Stadium but admitted it did take its toll.  'I don't think it's a personal attack against me or anything. I mean, it's fair. I definitely had no shame losing to Serena. It was very difficult with the crowd.' Kontaveit naturally entered the tournament as one of the favorites for the women's title but succumbed to the brilliance of Williams, who viciously fought back to claim a 6-7, 6-2, 6-2 victory.  The arguably overdone procession continues for the modern tennis matriarch, but it is the end of the road for Kontaveit, who has struggled to make an impact at this year's grand...

    Flanked by state troopers and Metro Transit police leaders, DFL Gov. Tim Walz declared at a press conference last week that increases in crime in Minnesota “are simply unacceptable.” It was an official press conference, even if it looked and felt like a campaign event. As the incumbent, Walz gets to do incumbent things – official events that can also help your reelection campaign. In a close election, it’s the advantage Walz has. But one of the disadvantages for incumbents – having your record out there – presented itself a day after the press conference: Just before 4 p.m. on Friday, the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension released a report showing year-over-year violent crime incidence had jumped nearly 22 percent in Minnesota.

Dramatic video of the July 9 robbery, which showed two suspects pistol-whipping a man and a woman before fleeing with the watch, shocked customers who didn’t think such a crime could happen at the popular Asian grocery store in a prosperous part of the San Gabriel Valley.

Investigators believe they know the second suspect’s identity, but Ruiz declined to release more information, citing the ongoing investigation.

The warrant, which Trump is in possession of, has not been made public. According to a Thursday report from CNN, the search warrant was executed because investigators obtained evidence that Trump was withholding classified documents previously sought: The FBI search at Mar-a-Lago this week came months after federal investigators served an earlier grand jury subpoena and took away sensitive national security documents from former President Donald Trump’s property during a June meeting, people familiar with the matter tell CNN. Investigators executed Monday’s search in part because they had developed evidence, including from at least one witness,...
    Two days after hosting a press conference on the killings of three Muslim men in the last nine months, Albuquerque police were back to address yet another one Saturday. Just before midnight Friday, the Albuquerque Police Department received word of the murder of yet another Muslim man, Police Chief Harold Medina told reporters. And authorities believe the four killings may be linked, he said. Muhammad Afzaal Hussain, a 27-year-old local official in the city of Española, was shot and killed outside his apartment on Monday. Six days earlier, 41-year-old Aftab Hussein was killed in his apartment complex parking lot less than five miles away. They both reportedly attended the same mosque. The first of the killings occurred in November 2021, when 62-year-old Mohammad Ahmadi was shot and killed outside a halal cafe. An APD spokesperson said he could not give specifics on the latest killing, but there was a “connection” between the crime and the previous murders that made him believe they could be linked. He added: “It is surprising that this happened so soon after we spoke on Thursday.”...

    Georgia Senate nominee for the Republican Party Herschel Walker released several statements on Thursday criticizing his opponent, incumbent Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock (D), on law enforcement support, crime rates, and his history of support for Joe Biden in the days leading up to Friday’s press conference with U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. “Raphael Warnock has consistently worked to support criminals instead of keeping our communities safe,” spokeswoman Mallory Blount said. “Crime is rising across the country and Georgia is no exception. Atlanta has one of the highest crime rates in the country and Georgians are sick and tired of it. Warnock has done more for Joe Biden than law-abiding Georgians and it is time Georgia had a senator who takes public safety seriously.” Friday’s press conference on law enforcement with former Speaker of the House and GA-06 representative Newt Gingrich (R), will take place at Alpharetta City Hall at 2 Park Plaza. Walker’s team has requested that the media be set up by 9:45 a.m. for the 10:00 a.m. start. “They will cover the national border crisis and...

The excerpt appears in Politico White House bureau chief Jonathan Lemire’s new book, The Big Lie, which came out on Tuesday.

Ms Kennedy, daughter of assassinated US president John F. Kennedy, landed in Sydney on Friday morning and met with journalists to discuss what her role as the US's ambassador to Australia will look like.

    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday defended President Joe Biden's meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his controversial fist bump with the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia. She said she wasn't in the meeting with MBS, the crown prince is known by his intials, but said she believed the president when he said he raised the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. A Saudi official claimed he didn't hear Biden bring up the matter during the private conversation. 'I trust the president,' Jean-Pierre said. 'He made those comments, as you heard directly from him during during the press conference, and he said at the top of the meeting, he mentioned Jamal Khashoggi.' She also pointed out Biden was asked about the Saudi denial and confirmed he brought up Khashoggi.  'The president was asked this question, and he spoke to it directly. And I do believe that, you know, if, if anyone telling you differently about what the president said they weren't listening to the president himself, when he was asked that question,' she said. 'He was...
    With a rap of his knuckles, President Joe Biden broke one of the most straightforward promises that he made on the presidential campaign trail: to make the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia a “pariah” over the state-coordinated assassination of a journalist in 2018. He’s not sure why you think it’s such a big deal. “God love you—what a silly question,” Biden said in response to a reporter’s question about whether he could guarantee that Saudi Arabia wouldn’t target another critic in the future. “How could I possibly be sure of anything?” Biden’s decision on Friday to fist-bump with Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince and de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia who U.S. intelligence agencies believe personally ordered the murder and dismemberment of Jamal Khashoggi, outraged critics of the regime, from Khashoggi’s family to his former employer. “Hey @POTUS, Is this the accountability you promised for my murder?” tweeted Hatice Cengiz, Khashoggi’s fiancée, from a Twitter account under her late partner’s name. “The blood of MBS’s next victim is on your hands.” Fred Ryan, the publisher of the Washington Post, which...

    Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott shut down questions from FOX 45 reporter Rebecca Pryor in a video posted by FOX 45. During a press conference about the recent demolition of homes lost to a spreading sinkhole, Pryor attempted to ask questions she claimed she was barred from asking earlier in the day when Mayor Scott spoke over her. During Pryor's questioning, Mayor Scott repeatedly interrupted her and berated the reporter for asking about a separate topic she claimed she had clearance to ask about. Scott is then heard criticizing Pryor, telling her to "have some respect" before Pryor's microphone audio appeared to get cut.  Responses to the incident criticize Scott's attitude as a representation of  "poor leadership." The two apparently spoke after the briefing and Pryor had her questions answered.
