    Former USA international Eric Wynalda has quickly backtracked on his claims that Gregg Berhalter asked Gio Reyna to lie about being injured, now insisting he 'didn't mean to say' it and apologizing to those involved. Wynalda - who played in three World Cups - claimed last week that Reyna, 20, had fallen out with the USA coach after refusing to lie about being injured for the Wales game, a statement that was strongly refuted by Berhalter himself. Speaking at his press conference, the America boss stated: 'That's just not who I am. That's not what I represent. So if you have to take my word or Eric's word, feel free. But I know what happened. That's not what I represent.' And just hours later, Wynalda himself poured more cold water on his own claims, also revealing that he has reached out to Berhalter to apologize personally.  Gio Reyna has been training alongside teammates ahead of the USA's crunch game with Iran Gregg Berhalter quickly shut down claims he had lied over the Dortmund winger's injury On Counter Attack, @EricWynalda clarified...
    England and the USA are known around the world for their special relationship.  But tonight the Three Lions want to teach the Stars and Stripes a lesson on and off the pitch.    From suspect terminology and cringey chants to an apparent difficulty understanding the offside rule - leading to the New York Times producing its own handy guide - there's still a lot that the Americans get wrong about the Beautiful Game. And that's even before we get started on Diana Ross's shocking penalty at the 1994 World Cup opening ceremony (yes, we've still not forgotten)... With England and the USA preparing to face off against each other in Qatar tonight, it's time to iron out these issues once and for all.

    USA Today has removed 23 news stories from its website following an internal audit which found that a reporter who wrote them had misattributed quotes and may have made up interviews and sources.   Gabriela Miranda who was the newspaper's 'breaking news reporter' has since resigned from her post.  Meanwhile, USA Today has removed the almost two dozen stories that she wrote between spring 2021 and 2022. Users clicking on the links are greeted with the message: 'This story has been removed from our platforms because it does not meet our standards.'   The company revealed that it had conducted an investigation into Miranda's reporting following an  'external correction request', but did not elaborate further.  The audit was then widened to look at a broader stretch of her reporting with a focus on trending topics and viral stories. USA Today said it has deleted 23 articles from its website after an investigation found that the reporter who wrote them used fabricated sources Gabriela Miranda, a breaking news reporter, resigned from the Virginia-based newspaper weeks ago after the paper found she 'took steps...
    America's largest newspaper chain Gannett has instructed its newsrooms to scale back opinion pieces which are 'repelling readers' who do not want to be told what to do.  The newspaper chain owns the USA Today network which takes in hundreds of local newspapers in almost every state across the country. At a recent editors committee meeting in April, editors said in a presentation: 'Readers don’t want us to tell them what to think.  'They don’t believe we have the expertise to tell anyone what to think on most issues.  The newspaper chain owns the USA Today network which takes in hundreds of local newspapers in almost every state across the country 'They perceive us as having a biased agenda,' according to The Washington Post.  Now, the company will do-away with opinion pieces almost entirely and they will also not allow any endorsement of politicians aside from in local races.  They will no longer endorse presidential candidates, or candidates in House and Senate races.  The only elections they will now cover will be local.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next ...

    Conservative political commentator Candace Owens has slammed USA Today's decision to include President Biden's transgender Assistant Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine among its nominees for 2022 Women of the Year.  The inclusion on the list of Dr. Levine, 64, who is the nation's first openly transgender federal official to be confirmed by the Senate, sparked outrage from some critics including Owens.  'Whats a woman? I'm confused. I don't know what a woman is anymore. It is funny and pointedly ridiculous. It gets back to what I always say about progressives which is that they're always so progressive that they actually just regressive, right? Owens began in a lengthy diatribe on Tucker Carlson's show on Fox News on Tuesday night.   'It's the same with feminism,' Owens went on. 'With early feminism, we were trying to create a space for women that was separate from men. We wanted women sports and for them to compete differently.  'We have women that train all the way from the time that they're kids up through college to try to compete against other women. Now you can...
    The "news" was clearly a joke — as anyone with any sense understood. But USA Today wasn't sure people were smart enough to see through the Bee's nefarious "reporting." So the paper ran a fact-check to make sure everybody understood: "There is no evidence Biden said he plans to sell Alaska." Thankfully for all the rubes in America, the newspaper was able to determine that the Bee piece was satire. "Based on our research, we rate SATIRE the claim that Biden plans to sell Alaska to Russia," USA Today ruled. Oh, and if you're wondering, "Who pays for this nonsense?" the paper has this note at the bottom of the fact-check: "Our fact-check work is supported in part by a grant from Facebook."

    "Speaking as a gay men [sic], I believe we SHOULD include the P. To do otherwise is to betray the principles that give us our rights," Cantor wrote on Twitter. Speaking as a gay men, I believe we SHOULD include the P. To do otherwise is to betray the principles that give us our rights. — Dr. James Cantor (@Dr. James Cantor) 1544300474 The article also cites Allyn Walke, an assistant professor of sociology and criminal justice at Old Dominion University. Walker was placed on administrative leave on Nov. 16 after referring to pedophiles as "minor-attracted people" or "MAPs." On the topic of "minor-attracted people," Walker claimed, "There is no morality or immorality attached to attraction to anyone because no one can control who they're attracted to at all. In other words, it's not who we're attracted to that's either OK or not OK. It's our behaviors and responding to that attraction that are either OK or not OK." Walker's bio states the assistant professor is a "white, queer, nonbinary trans person" with pronouns of "they/them." Walker – who...
    USA Today has been getting roasted on social media for attempting to destigmatize pedophilia, portraying it as an orientation that may even be forged in the womb. Written by Alia Dastagir, the article laments that pedophilia stands among “the most misunderstood” of sexual orientations, with people often making it synonymous with child abuse. Dastagir writes: When most of the public thinks of pedophilia, they assume it’s synonymous with child sexual abuse, a pervasive social problem that has exploded to crisis levels online. Researchers who study pedophilia say the term describes an attraction, not an action, and using it interchangeably with ‘abuse” fuels misperceptions. The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders has described pedophilia as being marked by “recurrent, intense sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors involving sexual activity with a prepubescent child or children.” Some scientists have even put forward the idea that pedophilia may originate in the womb, meaning pedophiles have no control over their attraction. “The evidence suggests it is inborn. It’s neurological,” said clinical psychologist James Cantor. “Pedophilia is the attraction to children, regardless of whether...
    USA Today editorial board member Jaden Amos is making no secret of her disdain for the government's handling of the pandemic, declaring in a Monday op-ed she was wrong to assume it would work in the best interest of the American people. In the op-ed headlined, "I assumed we could trust the government and each other during the pandemic. I was wrong," a distraught Amos claimed that government institutions had instead worked in the best interest of corporations and had started to give up on fighting the pandemic, causing her to want to give up too.  SUPREME COURT WILL LIKELY ISSUE ‘SPLIT’ ON BIDEN VACCINE MANDATE: DHILLON "I am not so naive that I blindly trusted the government without any skepticism before 2020 – I am a journalist after all," Amos wrote. "But I always assumed they’d be more prepared for something like the pandemic. I had hoped that when things took a turn for the worst, we would unite and the government would always act in our best interest." "I was wrong," she said. Amos wrote that, as a New York...
    Allowing noncitizens to vote is “legally sound,” a “smart policy,” “good for democracy,” and even “rooted in both American tradition and ideals,” according to a USA Today columnist who claimed the inability of “potential citizens” to vote is “not fair,” while blasting Republicans — who have “no legal or moral standing to whine about protecting the right to vote” — for their opposition. USA Today columnist Raul A. Reyes penned an op-ed which appeared on CNN on Friday, titled “Why noncitizens should be allowed to vote,” praising the New York City Council after Democrats voted with a veto-proof majority to give nearly a million foreign nationals the right to vote in local elections on Thursday evening. My latest for @CNNOpinion: "Allowing noncitizens to vote in local elections is smart policy & legally sound. It will strengthen communities and .. it is rooted in both American tradition and ideals." #NewYorkCity https://t.co/OP2jLCdpnL — Raul A.

    CAPE MAY, N.J. (CBS) — Monday’s warmer weather had some people heading down the shore. Now a shore town can claim some new bragging rights. Cape May was voted the 10th-best “small coastal town in America,” according to USA Today’s 10Best Readers Choice Awards. It’s the only town down the shore to earn a spot on the list. America’s oldest seaside resort also finished second in the best small-town shopping category.
    USA Today initially snubbed Winsome Sears and Jason Miyares from a report highlighting the "candidates of color" who made history in various election races on Tuesday but added the trailblazing Republicans following a Fox News report on backlash to the omissions.  Virginia rocked the political world with Glenn Youngkin leading the Republican ticket to victory in the commonwealth that President Joe Biden won by ten points last year. The two other big winners were Sears, who will become Virginia's lieutenant governor to be a woman of color, and Miyares, who will be the state's first Hispanic attorney general.  However, neither of them were initially mentioned in USA Today's roundup of the diverse candidates that emerged victorious this week. Instead, the initial report listed several Democrats who won historic races like Asian-American Michelle Wu winning the Boston mayoral race and Eric Adams becoming the second Black mayor of New York City.  Former Republican Delegate Winsome Sears celebrates winning the race for Lt. Governor of Virginia as she introduces Republican candidate for Governor Glenn Youngkin during an election night party in Chantilly Virginia, U.S., November 3,...

    Anyone can fake a cramp injury in football. They are seen so often on televised games. Fall to the ground, grab your leg, and have a teammate or trainer stretch your foot and bend the toes. This happened continuously — real or fake — in Ole Miss’ 31-26 victory at Tennessee Saturday. There were 18 stops for injuries in between plays, according to the play-by-play, including 11 in the fourth quarter. Ole Miss’ offense broke a school record in the game with 101 plays, which was its most since 100 snaps in a 37-32 loss at Wyoming in 2004. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM The 101 plays were the ninth most in SEC history and most since Texas A&M ran 107 in a 74-72 win over LSU in 2018, and that was a seven-overtime game.

    Alastair Pike/Getty Images USA Today corrected one of its own fact checks this week, conceding it erroneously claimed President Joe Biden did not look at his watch during a ceremony for fallen service members — when he in fact did so three times. Referencing a photograph that has circulated online juxtaposing Biden looking at his watch with former President Donald Trump saluting caskets at another ceremony, USA Today’s Daniel Funke wrote on Tuesday, “The claim that he checked his watch instead of honoring the fallen service members is wrong. … The full video of the dignified transfer ceremony shows Biden honored each of the fallen U.S. service members. He appeared to check his watch after the ceremony ended.” The paper appended a correction to the top of the story on Thursday. “This story was updated Sept. 2 to note that Biden checked his watch multiple times at the dignified transfer event, including during the ceremony itself,” the publication said, without going into details. “The rating on this claim has been changed from partly false to missing context.” A new subheading...
    This week, as Gold Star families mourned the loss of their loved ones whose lives were taken in service to the United States, USA Today felt it necessary to fact-check the claim that President Joe Biden repeatedly eyed his watch during the dignified transfer ceremony last Sunday. In the original fact check, USA Today labeled the claim that Biden checked his watch repeatedly during the ceremony “Partly False,” arguing that images of him glancing at his wrist happened after the ceremony had ended. The fact check did not include the testimonies of several Gold Star families, who claimed to have personally witnessed Biden’s actions: Based on our research, we rate PARTLY FALSE the claim that Trump saluted the caskets of fallen U.S. service members, while Biden checked his watch. The pictures are real, but they don’t accurately summarize the two events. The way Biden honored the 11 caskets presented at Dover Air Force Base, with a hand over his heart, was similar to how Trump paid respects to fallen service members during his presidency. Biden checked his watch, but he did so after the ceremony had ended....
    Anna Moneymaker/Getty Images A USA Today/Suffolk University poll released on Tuesday contains some shockingly bad approval numbers for President Joe Biden. The poll was taken Thursday through Monday, right after the fall of Afghanistan’s capital city of Kabul to the Taliban, prompting Americans and Afghans to scramble to the airport currently under U.S. control. Biden had set a full withdrawal date of August 31 and on Tuesday addressed the nation to say that is still the plan, and that 70,000 people have already been evacuated. Just 41% of Americans approve of the job Biden is doing, according to the poll. Meanwhile, 55% disapprove. The president’s handling of Afghanistan was the driving force behind the numbers. “Today, President Biden’s overall approval has taken a turn for the worse due to his awful job performance rating on Afghanistan,” said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk Political Research Center. Even though 53% of Americans agreed with his decision to withdraw compared to 38% who did not, 62% disapproved of the withdrawal’s execution. Sixty-percent say the war in Afghanistan wasn’t worth it. Of the...
    USA Today believes Wisconsin might be in for a special football season. The outlet recently released a list of the eight teams “most likely” to make their first playoff appearance, and the Badgers were on it. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Wisconsin Football (@badgerfootball) USA Today wrote the following in part about Wisconsin’s outlook: Assuming Mertz develops in his second year as starter, the offense could have its best passing threat since Russell Wilson’s one season in 2011. The defense is again going to be great after finishing in the top 10 in scoring for the sixth time in seven seasons. Any run to contention will require a fast start with Penn State and Notre Dame among the first three games. It’s hard to disagree with USA Today’s assessment of the situation. The Badgers are primed for a monster year and if we’re ready to make the playoff, it’s this season. Graham Mertz has another offseason of development under his belt,...

    A USA Today columnist blasted the NFL Friday for making a big show of observing Juneteenth but not using the holiday to reflect on its “most racist practice” of race-norming. In his Friday op ed, columnist Mike Freeman gave faint praise to the National Football League for being an early adopter of the Juneteenth celebration. Juneteenth was first celebrated in Texas on June 19, 1865, when Union troops arrived in that state, ensuring the freedom of all enslaved people under the terms of the Emancipation Proclamation. Agreeing that the NFL’s move to recognize Juneteenth was “significant,” Freeman still faulted the league for not using the holiday to reflect on its own “racist practices.” “What most of the public didn’t know, was as the NFL patted itself on the back for recognizing Juneteenth, it was also using one of the most racist practices in its history, and that’s race-norming,” Freeman wrote. While NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell insisted that the league’s recognition was intended to be “a day to reflect on our past,” Freeman claims that the NFL is doing no such thing....

The article in question was about the deaths of two FBI agents, Daniel Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger on February 2 when 55-year-old David Huber started shooting as they approached his Florida apartment shortly after 6 a.m. Huber was suspected of possessing child porn, but the FBI never revealed why. He had no prior criminal history. After killing the agents, Huber committed suicide.

    USA Today printed a fake front cover about "hybrid babies" in an advertisement for Netflix's "Sweet Tooth." Chloe Jones/ USA Today's weekend print edition was wrapped in an advertisement mirroring the paper's front page. The ad was for Netflix's new show, "Sweet Tooth," that warned of human-animal hybrid babies. The real front cover was about how rising immigration rates have affected a border town in Texas. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. USA Today wrapped its June 4 weekend edition newspaper with a fake cover warning of  "a new generation of half-human, half-animal children" as an advertisement in partnership with Netflix for its new show, "Sweet Tooth." The fake front page contained two small articles about the threat of "hybrids" to national security" and how the hybrids are "the greatest mystery of our lifetime." The only giveaway that the cover was fake is the word " " written in a tiny font located just above the headline. "Sweet Tooth" is centered on a deer-human hybrid kid, Gus, who goes on an adventure to learn more about why...
    For the second time this year, USA Today has altered an op-ed after it was published in order to push a liberal narrative.  The latest instance came with a column from former female Connecticut high school track star Chelsea Mitchell opposing transgender females from participating in girls’ sports. The op-ed was published on Saturday but was updated on Wednesday with an editor’s note apologizing for "hurtful language." The language was was changed to reflect the "USA Today’s standards and style guidelines," the newspaper said. In her op-ed, Mitchell used the word "male" to describe the biologically male transgender athletes who were participating in girls’ sports. In the updated version, each instance Mitchell used the word "male" now reads as "transgender." According to Christiana Holcomb, who is legal counsel for a group working with Mitchell, USA Today made the changes unilaterally.  USA TODAY UNDER FIRE FOR ALLOWING STACEY ABRAMS TO RETROACTIVELY EDIT OP-ED TO DOWNPLAY BOYCOTT SUPPORT This is the second time this year USA Today has caused controversy by editing an op-ed after publication.

    USA Today removed the word 'male' from an op-ed by a female runner after she called out the 'unfair fight' in competing against transgender athletes.  Chelsea Mitchell wrote about her time competing in Connecticut in a piece for the site published last week, where she said she had lost to 'male runners'.  Without consultation, USA Today then removed the word 'male', calling it 'hurtful', changing it instead to 'transgender'.   That decision has been slammed as 'appeasing the mob' by Mitchell's lawyer, Christiana Holcomb, who tweeted: 'This blatant censorship violates the trust we place in media to be honest brokers of public debate.'  Holcomb added: ''@USATODAY published our client Chelsea Mitchell’s opinion about the unfairness she experienced being forced to compete against male athletes.  'But after backlash from the woke mob, editors unilaterally changed Chelsea’s words & called them “hurtful language.”  What was the "hurtful language" that editors deleted from Chelsea's opinion piece three days after publication? The word "male."  'USA Today violated its principles to appease the mob. This blatant censorship violates the trust we place in media to be honest...
    Manchester City is only one game away from achieving its first berth ever in the Champions League final. Man City scored a 2-1 victory over PSG in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal on April 28, heading into the Parc des Princes and coming away with a comeback victory off goals by Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez. Their two goals, which came in the 64th and 71st minutes, respectively, gave Man City the win after Marquinhos gave PSG a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute. The win marked Man City’s 18th straight away win, regardless of competition, and put PSG into a difficult situation as they head to Etihad Stadium; they will need to score at least two goals in a victory to advance.

    Only two games stand in the way of Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and the Champions League final. A trip for PSG would mark the club’s second all-time berth on the ultimate stage (and second in as many years). Man City, meanwhile, has never made the Champions League final and has only made the semifinals once before (losing 2-0 to fellow Premier League team Chelsea). MORE: Watch PSG vs. Manchester City with fuboTV (7-day free trial) The most dangerous player on the field for Wednesday’s match will be PSG’s Kylian Mbappe, who with eight goals is the leading scorer among teams still in contention for the Champions League title. He is also tied for second in Europe’s Golden Shoe race, tallying 25 goals in 34 matches for PSG in Ligue 1. Man City doesn’t have quite the scoring threat of Mbappe, but has plenty of scoring threats such as Ilkay Gundogan (16 goals, three in Champions League), Phil Foden (14 and three) and Ferran Torres (nine and three). Manchester City earned its semifinal berth with a 4-2 aggregate victory over...

    USA Today is facing intense backlash for allowing prominent Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams to retroactively make changes to a March 31 op-ed that watered-down her support for boycotts after Major League Baseball (MLB) moved its All-Star game out of Atlanta days later.  "Can’t say I’m surprised. The left spends weeks spreading lies and promoting boycotts, and their pals in the national media cover their tracks," Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp tweeted on Tuesday after Fox News first reported on the controversial USA Today op-ed. "Stacey Abrams can’t have it both ways. Hardworking Georgians deserve the truth." USA TODAY EDITS STACEY ABRAMS OP-ED PUBLISHED BEFORE MLB PULLED GAME IN ATLANTA, WATERS DOWN BOYCOTT SUPPORT "Stacey Abrams called for boycotts of Georgia—then when the MLB fell for her lies, she tried to rewrite her own words and cover it up with help from @USAToday," former Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler reacted. "Now, hardworking Georgians are set to lose $100 million—and they know exactly who’s to blame." Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark, who has been the subject of various "fact-checks" after accusing Abrams of emboldening the boycotts against...
    USA Today edited an op-ed by Stacey Abrams, which was written before Major League Baseball’s decision to move its All-Star Game, to remove language supportive of boycotting the state’s businesses. In the op-ed, published on March 31, just days before MLB decided to move its All-Star Game, Abrams said that she couldn’t “argue with an individual’s choice to opt for their competition." But in the revised version of the op-ed, that line was omitted, while other sections were completely reworked to soften the prominent Democrat's language on boycotts. "The impassioned response to the racist, classist bill that is now the law of Georgia is to boycott in order to achieve change," Abrams originally wrote. "Events hosted by major league baseball, world class soccer, college sports and dozens of Hollywood films hang in the balance. At the same time, activists urge Georgians to swear off of hometown products to express our outrage. Until we hear clear, unequivocal statements that show Georgia-based companies get what’s at stake, I can’t argue with an individual’s choice to opt for their competition." "However, one lesson...
    The first semifinal matchup of the 2021 Champions League features two teams that haven’t faced each other in 22 years. Chelsea, seeking to make its first appearance in the Champions League final since 2012, will have to go through Real Madrid, which last enjoyed that stage in 2018. It will be the teams’ first meeting since the 1998 Super Cup. The Blues earned their trip to the Champions League semis with a 2-1 aggregate victory over Porto in the semifinals, earning a 2-0 victory in the first leg and holding the Dragons off in the second with a 1-0 loss. Real Madrid’s berth was less troublesome, as it beat Liverpool 3-1 in the first leg of the quarters before advancing with a 0-0 tie in the second. Olivier Giroud has been Chelsea’s top goalscorer in the Champions League, scoring six goals — tied for second among goalscorers on still-active teams — in 256 minutes played, the fewest by a wide margin of any of the league’s top scorers. Madrid, meanwhile, will likely look to Karim Benzema (five goals, 662...
    USA Today has appeared to edit an op-ed about Georgia’s election reform laws by political activist Stacey Abrams to downplay support for boycotting events, Fox News reported. The original piece was published on March 31 and focused on Georgia’s election reform bill that drew national outrage and was the motivating factor for Major League Baseball (MLB) to relocate its All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver. In the op-ed, Abrams referred to the legislation as “racist” and “classist,” Fox News reported. “These are laws that respond to an increase in voting by people of color,” Abrams previously said about the election reform laws. “The impassioned response to the racist, classist bill that is now the law of Georgia is to boycott in order to achieve change. Events hosted by major league baseball, world class soccer, college sports and dozens of Hollywood films hang in the balance,” Abrams originally wrote. “At the same time, activists urge Georgians to swear off of hometown products to express our outrage. Until we hear clear, unequivocal statements that show Georgia-based companies get what’s at stake, I...
    The highly anticipated second meeting between Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich takes place Tuesday in the Parc des Princes in Paris, and the Parisian team has to feel good about its chance to advance to the Champions League semifinals. PSG took advantage in the first leg of the quarterfinal meeting, scoring three away goals in the 3-2 win over Bayern on April 7. Kylian Mbappe bookended PSG’s goals in the third and 68th minutes, the latter the last goal by either team. Marquinhos scored the second of PSG’s three goals in the 28th minute, putting the Parisians up 2-0. Credit to Munich, however, which brought the score 2-1 in 37th minute (Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting) and tied the game in the 60th with a Thomas Muller header. Regardless, Bayern faces a significant — but not insurmountable — deficit in its trip to Parc des Princes. But it has some hope heading into the rematch.

    Glenn Greenwald responded Sunday to criticism he received for his response to a USA Today report on defendants charged in the Capitol riots crowdfunding legal fees online. Greenwald was criticized by journalists and media figures for quote-tweeting USA Today intern Brenna Smith sharing the piece to criticize the reporting. Greenwald said, “Congratulations on using your new journalistic platform to try to pressure tech companies to terminate the ability of impoverished criminal defendants to raise money for their legal defense from online donations. You’re well on your way upward in this industry for sure.” Fox News’ Howard Kurtz asked Greenwald about people saying he was bullying Smith over the piece, particularly criticism that he was unfairly targeting a young woman. Greenwald responded: “It’s so ironic. Because the whole point of feminism, the feminist movement which I’ve always supported and still support, is to say that women are as strong as men, and as capable as men of doing professional jobs. There’s obviously a lot of strong women in journalism. What they’re doing is reversing that, they’re saying women are too fragile,...
                      by Andrew Kerr  USA TODAY Sports’ race and inclusion editor Hemal Jhaveri announced Friday she was fired after falsely saying an “angry white man” was responsible for Monday’s mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado. “[I]t’s always an angry white man. Always,” Jhaveri said Monday evening before police revealed the shooter was 21-year-old Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, a migrant from Syria. I’m shocked and appalled that the Race and Inclusion editor at a major newspaper, is, in fact, a racist. (And pronouns in bio, of course.) pic.twitter.com/lhP7mKTRj6 — Dave Rubin (@RubinReport) March 23, 2021 Jhaveri said in a Medium post on Friday that her tweet was a “dashed off over-generalization” after pictures of the shooter being arrested surfaced online. “It was a careless error of judgment, sent at a heated time, that doesn’t represent my commitment to racial equality,” Jhaveri said. “I regret sending it. I apologized and deleted the tweet.” Despite deleting the tweet and apologizing, Jhaveri said USA TODAY relieved her of her position as a race and inclusion editor...
