    Photo by Kevin Dietsch/Getty Images The editorial board at the Denver Post called on Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) to cease “elevating hateful speech” against the LGBTQ community in an op-ed posted after a mass shooting in Colorado Springs. The paper’s editorial team targeted the right-wing congresswoman three days after an armed man entered Club Q and killed five people while wounding 25 others. Editors published a piece headlined “Editorial: We’re looking at you, Lauren Boebert. Stop the intolerance.” The paper noted in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, Boebert tweeted, “The news out of Colorado Springs is absolutely awful. This morning the victims & their families are in my prayers. This lawless violence needs to end and end quickly.” The news out of Colorado Springs is absolutely awful. This morning the victims & their families are in my prayers.

    Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) threw cold water on hopes that Donald Trump will receive the 2024 presidential nomination for the Republican Part, blasting the former president as the most likely to lose among potential candidates. “We all know he’s so much more likely to lose the White House than anybody else running for president on our side of the aisle, so why would we want to go with that?” Ryan said during a discussion on Teneo’s Insight Series. Trump remains politically powerful, Ryan added, because “everybody’s afraid of him.” “He only remains where he is because everbody’s afraid of him. They’re afraid of him going after them, hurting their ambition, but as soon as you get the herd mentality going, it’s unstoppable,” he said. Ryan said regardless of Trump’s decision on a 2024 run, he will not be the party’s nominee. “Whether he runs or not, I don’t really know if it matters, he’s not going to be the nominee, I think,” he said. In other parts of Ryan’s sit down with Kevin Kajiwara, Ryan described...
    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled no punches when asked how “confident” she is about the midterms, telling reporters “we have absolutely every intention of holding the House.” Speaker Pelosi and Rep. Joe Neguse (D-CO) held a press conference in Lafayette, CO Wednesday following a roundtable discussion on the impacts of the Inflation Reduction Act on scientific research and innovation at Boulder’s National Center for Atmospheric Research. Reporters asked Pelosi several questions about the midterms, including how she feels about Democrats’ chances, which polls suggest have been improving over the past few months. Pelosi repeatedly said she “absolutely” expects her party to retain its majority: Q. In regards to the 7th and 8th Congressional Districts, how closely have you been following those races and how confident are you that Democrats will keep the House? Congressman Neguse. I think the question was around the Eighth Congressional District and sort of prognosticating about the fortunes in the election. And I guess I would just, again, echo what the Speaker mentioned previously, which is candidates matter, and having talented individuals who have...
    The head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is defending the controversial strategy of promoting Donald Trump loyalist Republicans in primary battles — the thinking being that such candidates will be weaker opponents for Democrats to face off against in the midterms. Appearing on Sunday’s Meet the Press, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) was confronted on the issue by Chuck Todd, and the Democrat stuck to his guns. Todd specifically honed in on Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI), who lost his primary battle to the Trump-endorsed John Gibbs. Meijer was one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump. The DCCC spent over $400,000 on an ad highlighting Gibbs’ relationship to Trump and his policies, which many critics felt was free advertising for a MAGA Republican. “You put party over country, did you not? Is that something you’re comfortable with?” Todd asked Maloney. “Absolutely not did we put party over country. The moral imperative right now, Mr. Todd, is to keep the dangerous MAGA Republicans who voted to overturn our election out of power,” Maloney said, arguing Gibbs is a weaker...
    MOST families love the idea of being able to travel far and wide with their kids, but the reality of squeezing together into a tiny space to do it puts them off. But this family decided they didn't mind living on top of each other and moved out of their spacious home into a tiny trailer. 8The box trailer is small but has everything they needCredit: YOUTUBE 8The renovation only took two monthsCredit: YouTube Jen, Kirt and their two kids used to live in a big house with a farm and 11 acres of land before they left it all behind to live in a trailer on the back of their car. Jen explained to Tiny House Giant Journey: "We've been on the road now for about a year and a half." For the first year of their travels the family lived in a van, but quickly out grew it as their son's got older. Once they sold the van they spend the next two months renovating their new home - a slightly larger trailer that could go on the...
    An M270 MLRS rocket artillery system. Each one of those rockets carries 644 cluster munitions. No no no no no. Another weapon high on Ukraine's shopping list are Multiple Rocket Launch Systems (MLRS) such as the M270 made by Lockheed Martin which can strike a target 70 or more kilometers away, a three-fold increase over many of their current howitzer rounds [...] The two U.S. officials said the M270 or similar system like the M142 HIMARS would be considered for shipment to Ukraine once Congress passed a $40 billion supplemental funding bill that would authorize an additional $11 billion worth of Presidential Drawdown Authority. I have no first-hand experience with the relatively new HIMARS, but the M270 MLRS? I spent three years doing fire direction for an M270 MLRS battery, and I can’t imagine a worst idea than sending them those pieces of junk.  M270 MLRS, in action To be clear, militarily, M270s are deadly systems, able to obliterate a football-field-sized grid of land with a single volley of its 12 missiles. It was nicknamed the “Grid Square Removal System.” A...
    A PROFESSIONAL lash tech has revealed the hairstyles to not wear to your appointment. When getting your lashes done by an expert, most beauty lovers don't really think twice about what their hair looks like or what style they're wearing it in. 3Deja's viral clip has been liked by close to 455,000 people on the social media giantCredit: Tiktok/@damndej 3Going for a high bun is also not an option when visiting a lash tech, Deja revealedCredit: Tiktok/@damndej But according to one whizz, there are three hairstyles to avoid at all costs.

In a clip, which has since gone viral, racking up a whopping 5.1 million views, the expert said the first big no-no is having your long locks falling all over the back of the chair. However, if you were to assume that instead arriving with a top-knot or a high bun - messy or not - would make...
    Retired Colonel Doug MacGregor believes the best course of action in the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe is not to get involved. What’s more, he ostensibly suggested Ukrainian troops lay down their guns, retreat, and let Vladimir Putin have a large portion of Ukraine. Macgregor appeared on Fox News Sunday night and was asked by host Trey Gowdy to opine on the best course of action for the United States in dealing with this unfolding conflict. The retired colonel said he is unsure what Putin wants to do with eastern Ukraine “whether he forms another republic, annexes it into Russia because historically it has been Russian,” but claimed he is “happy” to leave western Ukraine as a neutral state. MacGregor then took Gowdy by surprise by suggesting Putin is only aggressing due to weapons accumulated at the Ukrainian border, arguing that the U.S. should not supply Ukraine with any military aid, and claiming without citing evidence that Putin does not intend to move troops westward. Gowdy pushed back, saying: “I am not a military expert, I’m not even an expert...
    Sunday on FNC’s “Fox News Live,” Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) emphasized the importance of doing everything possible to “allow the Ukrainians freedom and democracy.” Ernst called Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aggression “absolutely unacceptable.” She added that the United States needs to do more to provide lethal aid to the Ukrainians,” including cutting off Russia’s energy sources. “[T]his is heartbreaking, Bret,” Ernst said in response to Putin ordering his country’s nuclear forces to be on high alert. “And as I’ve asked point to many viewers before, I spent some time in Ukraine while it was part of the Soviet Union in 1989. And what I learned from the Ukrainians at that point was that they wanted to be free; that remains true today. Ukrainians want to be free.” “And what we see, this aggression shown by Russia, by Vladimir Putin — it is absolutely unacceptable, and it should be unacceptable across the world stage,” she continued. “We have to do more to provide lethal aid to the Ukrainians. We need to cut off Russian energy sources, we need to become energy independent,...
    Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that reforms to the Electoral Count Act of 1887 will “absolutely” pass Congress. Manchin said “What really caused the insurrection? They thought there was an ambiguity if you will, and there was an avenue they could go through and maybe overturn election, because there was. It was not clear when one congressman and one senator can bring a state’s authentic count to a halt, it’s wrong. Basically not protecting electors and you can change electors before you send them here after the election, all these things. This is what we’re going to fix. We have a group that’s continuing to grow. We’re 15 to 20 people that want to be part of it now.” Anchor Jake Tapper asked, “So do you think it’s going to pass?” Manchin said, “I think absolutely it will pass. There will be some people saying it’s not enough. There will be other people saying it’s more than what we should do or we don’t need it. We’ll try to bring them all together and...
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- It's an exciting time to be a Rams fan.The team is playing at SoFi Stadium - their home turf - for Super Bowl 56 in the first year that fans are allowed inside. It's truly something right out of a Hollywood movie script. ????@SoFiStadium | #SBLVI pic.twitter.com/i4qkR4phcc— NFL (@NFL) February 3, 2022"I don't know that you could have ever envisioned this exactly the way it's panned out," said Rams COO Kevin Demoff. "You could dream about it and have the Los Angeles Rams have their chance to win their first Super Bowl in Los Angeles. All of that ... if it was a Hollywood script, it would get tossed out because no one would believe it."Hollywood is known for its stars and the Rams certainly have their fair share.However, Demoff points out the reward of playing in the Super Bowl on its home turf started with a couple of significant risks."Many people had danced around Los Angeles," Demoff said.

    Trump supporters gather outside the U.S. Capitol building following a "Stop the Steal" rally on Jan. 6, 2021. As frightening as Jan. 6 was a year ago today, even more frightening is the possibility of another insurrection down the road.  I remember covering it for the news radio station I was working for in Los Angeles, California. It started slowly and then built to the frenzy. My sister called me in the first hour as the story broke. She was crying. She was scared. I wanted to cry too, but I couldn’t. I had to write what I was seeing and what was being said on social media in real time.  I thought, naively, that this would be the moment—the moment the nation would realize what I’d realized when Trump was just a candidate. He’s a joke. An evil joke whose only interest is in power and money, and he only wants to be president for the benefits it will offer him. But now, he’s launched a domestic terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol and democracy itself. Now his reign will end, I thought. But it hasn’t. In...
    After multiple cancellations and several delays due to Omicron, Broadway's president has insisted that the show will go on for up to 30 popular performances.   Last week, New York City's iconic theater district was forced to shut down nine separate productions for single or multiple performances after the state logged a record 21,908 COVID-19 cases on Friday.  As of Monday evening, the state broke its own record for the fourth straight day and logged 23,391 cases in 24 hours – about 1,000 more than the 22,478 cases reported the day before.  The newest city data reported that in the last seven days the city has has a daily average of 9,471 total cases of COVID-19, with 7,475 New Yorkers testing positive and 1,997 reporting probable cases.  The city has had a daily average of 94 hospitalizations of people who tested positive and at least 11 confirmed deaths, according NYC Health data.  Broadway has been hit particularly hard by the surge, with popular plays like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Hamilton, and MJ The Musical all cancelling upcoming shows due to the outbreak.  Dear Evan Hansen, Aladdin, Ain't...
    THREE men have told how they encountered an apparent Bigfoot-like "Yowie" as they travelled home from work - leaving them terrified. The men, from remote Queensland, Australia, have claimed they came across the beast while driving home earlier this month. 4Seamus Fitzgerald described the mysterious figure as having “very long arms” and an “apelike” faceCredit: AYR / Buck Buckingham The Courier Mail reported the three plantation workers were driving on Saturday, December 4 to the Jimna Base Camp in Australia when they spotted the animal. They said they spotted the “slouched over figure” under a street light and when the figure noticed them, it turned in their direction. Seamus Fitzgerald told The Courier Mail described the mysterious figure as having “very long arms” and an “apelike” face. He said: “We initially thought it was a boar or a really big animal until we got closer and saw it runoff in a very apelike way. “I’ve never really had a paranormal or strange experience like that before.

    A whistleblowing middle school teacher says she faces a “culture of intimidation” after being forbidden to teach — despite a shortage in teachers — due to her exposing her school district’s “radicalized” critical race theory (CRT) curriculum, which is manifest “absolutely everywhere” throughout the school’s culture as well as its reading materials. She warned it was causing “great harm and racial divide and hostility between children” and that the country will soon be unrecognizable if it is not stopped. Ramona Bessinger, a Providence, Rhode Island, veteran English teacher described in July how her school district’s “radicalized curriculum” actually “created racial tensions among students and staff where none existed before.” Joining Steve Malzberg on his Eat the Press weekly commentary show this past week, she said the school’s previous curriculum had “lots of diversity [and] lots of multicultural materials” as opposed to the new “radicalized” one, which sees CRT implicit throughout.  “We’re not teaching critical race theory. It’s implicit in the culture. It is implicit in all the reading materials. It is implicit in all the projects that the kids...
    Dame Joan Collins brands William Shatner 'a fool' while criticising his epic space mission in Saturday's upcoming episode of The Jonathan Ross Show.  Shatner, 90, made history earlier this month when he became the oldest man to meet space after rocketing up into the atmosphere in one of Amazon mogul Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin vessels.

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Evening Edit,” Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) reacted to testimony from Commander of United States Central Command Gen. Frank McKenzie that the Taliban offered to let the U.S. take control of security for Kabul by stating that if the U.S. had done so, “we absolutely would have had more people out,” and there’s a good chance that the suicide bombing at the Kabul airport would have been prevented, but doing so would have required more troops, which President Joe Biden didn’t want to do. Host Elizabeth MacDonald asked, “Gen. McKenzie testified that the Taliban even offered to let the U.S. take control of the security for Kabul airport. Would that have stopped 13 U.S. troops from getting killed? Would it have stopped thousands of Americans getting stranded? What do you say?” Green responded, “I think absolutely. The problem with the Taliban at their checkpoints, they couldn’t command and control their own checkpoints. So, maybe the leadership wanted to let Americans through, but at the checkpoints, they were blocking people with American passports and...

    SenitinelOne Exceeds IPO Goal to Raise $1.2 Billion 25 Secret Money Traps at Target, Walmart and Other Big-Box Stores Your browser does not support iframes. [Inhales deeply.] The NFL got something right. It's weird to type that, but it's true. The NFL got something right. Without there being public backlash. Not in response to some really negative attention. Without weeks or months passing. The league just ... got it right. On Monday, the NFL — which changed its vaunted shield avatar on Twitter to rainbow colors at the start of June to recognize Pride month — actually showed that the colorful logo wasn't just pandering. Thanks to the bravery of Las Vegas Raiders defensive lineman Carl Nassib, who last week told the world via Instagram that he is gay, the NFL was presented with the chance to do the right thing.  And it did. My world has temporarily been thrown off its axis. The NFL released a video, a public-service announcement of sorts, in which it announced "football is gay." And lesbian. And beautiful. And queer. And transgender....
    When words fail, sometimes you just have to cut down half a tree – at least, that’s what one couple did.  The couple, in Sheffield, U.K., called in an arborist to cut down half of the branches of a 16-foot-tall fir tree that were hanging over their driveway, according to reports. The rest of the tree is in their neighbor’s yard.  Their neighbor, Bharat Mistry, told SWNS that the tree has been in his front yard for 25 years. However, during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown last March, Mistry’s neighbors reportedly asked to have the tree removed, BBC reported.  MICHIGAN BOAT CAPTAIN FINDS 95-YEAR-OLD MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE: ‘WE WERE ALL IN SHOCK’ More recently, the neighbors complained about birds in the tree making too much noise and pooping on their driveway, so Mistry told SWNS that he tried to work on a solution.  "We had asked if we could get it trimmed back and put a net in it so it would stop birds getting in, but there was no compromise with them," Mistry told SWNS.  A couple...
    The fact that when the British people go to vote at general elections they are left choosing between candidates as low quality as Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn, and that the government’s emergency preparedness is basically non-existent, are major indicators of a nation facing serious fundamental problems, the coronavirus response inquiry has heard. While Whitehall and the Westminster-focused mainstream media were obsessing over the former Chief Advisor to the Prime Minister, Dominic Cummings, issuing stinging attacks on his former colleagues on Wednesday, perhaps his greatest fusillade was reserved for the enormous failings of the Civil Service, and the fundamentals of Britain’s political system. Cummings, who was ousted from Downing Street last year but was a key figure in Brexit and the 2019 general election as well as the early days of the British government’s coronavirus response, was giving oral evidence to the Parliamentary committee investigating Britain’s pandemic programme. While Cummings was completely happy in dismissing the competence, intelligence, and honesty of his former colleagues, he had more fundamental — and potentially deeply worrying — points to make about the basics...
    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins stated that the NIH did not approve “any grant that would have supported gain of function research on dangerous coronaviruses to see if they could be more transmissible or lethal for individuals in the human species.” Collins did say that the Wuhan Institute of Virology could have done that kind of research with other funding sources, but not grants approved by the NIH. Collins also said that the agency “can’t absolutely prevent somebody who has an intention of deceiving us about how they use the funds.” Collins said, “It was appropriate from the SARS episode and the MERS episode for us to worry about future coronavirus epidemics. And so, as the largest supporter of biomedical research in the world, we were interested in knowing more about what those viruses were that were lurking in bats in Chinese caves, and so there has been some grant support for that effort. But, let me be very clear, we never approved any grant that would have supported gain...
    Republicans should deal with the continued fallout from violent pro-Trump riots at the U.S. Capitol by pushing for those who committed crimes to face punishment, Sen.

Biden’s UN Pick Boosts Morale for Diplomats Trump Sidelined Are We Absolutely Sure Theres Going to Be an NCAA Tournament in 2021? College basketball begins today. It promises to be even more challenging than college football and the hectic, borderline chaotic way in which teams have tried to make it to the starting line portends uncertainty for the finish line. But nevertheless, games will tip with the best, most optimistic intentions. © Provided by The Big Lead St. John's v Creighton | Sarah Stier/Getty Images Many of you may not know that the band Nine Days had a second song that appeared immediately after Absolutely (Story of a Girl) on 2002's The Maddening Crowd. It's called If I Am, and in it, lead singer Brian Desveaux posits that one "should never let the sun set on tomorrow before the sun rises today." Wise words. And words reflected by some of college basketball's most important media figures. CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein, for example, published...

    OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has received a vote of confidence from Manchester United chief Ed Woodward. The Norwegian recently celebrated a 100 games in charge of the Red Devils. ⚠️ Read our Man United live blog for the latest news from Old Trafford 3Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure again at Manchester UnitedCredit: Rex Features 3Ed Woodward has given the Norwegian a vote of confidenceCredit: Getty Images - Getty However, he has come under heavy pressure after a miserable run of results both domestically and in Europe. Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani helped relieve some of that as they both struck to seal a 3-1 win at Everton in the Premier League last weekend. Despite that, United are still a lowly 14th in the table going into the international break. And that has led to both out-of-work Mauricio Pochettino and Massimiliano Allegri being linked with his job. But United’s executive vice-chairman has moved to kill that speculation in a statement released revealing the club’s first quarter results. Woodward said: “On the pitch, while there is still hard work ahead to achieve...
    A DAD has sparked a heated debate among cleaning fans, after he claimed they had been using their dishwasher tablets “all wrong.” In the TikTok video, which has been viewed more than 3.7 million times, dad-of-three Scott Jeffreys puts his dishwasher tablet in the smaller section of the tablet dispenser rather than the recommended larger section. 3Scott Jeffreys claimed that we have been using our dishwasher tablets wrongCredit: scottjeffreys0/TikTok “Who knew?

The video got hundreds of comments, with plenty of people amazed that they too had been “doing it wrong”. “Looks like I have been doing it wrong; wonder why my dishes are not clean,” one person wrote while another added: “What, all my life I’ve been living in a lie.” But not everyone was convinced by Scott’s approach, with many quick to argue he had got it wrong. 3The dad-of-three said we should be squeezing tablets into the smaller compartment of the washing machine Credit: scottjeffreys0/TikTok “That’s totally wrong, you had it right the first time,” one person commented....
    Baba Sehgal entered our lives with “Aaja Meri Gaadi Mein Baith Ja”. But for the Gen-Z generation, he is the dude who makes parodies of “Bella Ciao” as “Kela Khao”. He calls his parody an inspiration song. “I really love “Bella Ciao” from Money Heist so the song “Kela Khao” just happened. I was doing a lot of songs during the lockdown like “Namaste”, “Corona Go” and all of them were received well. Even I love “Kela Khao”. It is also an inspirational song,” he said in an interview with The Indian Express. Rapper Baba Sehgal Blames Lack of Creativity for Bollywood Recreating Old Classic Songs.

He’s struggled to reach this point and he’s got a million followers and views, and they’re organic.”...
    Giants-Cowboys Preview Household products that are a complete waste of money Microsoft told employees it plans to release a browser-based app for the Xbox Game Pass streaming service next year that will get around Apple App Store rules: We absolutely will end up on iOS © Provided by Business Insider Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's gaming division. Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images Microsoft last month officially added a key feature to Game Pass, its Netflix-style subscription library of Xbox games: The ability to stream many of the included games to any Android smartphone or tablet. Notably, Apple's iPhone and iPad were absent from the launch. Apple has said it doesn't allow apps for streaming services such as Game Pass or Google's Stadia because it's unable to review each game on the platform. "We absolutely will end up on iOS with Game Pass," Microsoft gaming boss Phil Spencer told employees. The company is targeting 2021 for the potential release of a "direct browser-based solution," Spencer said. Amazon says that it's able to bring its forthcoming cloud gaming...

    A Kentucky grand jury on Wednesday indicted one of three Louisville officers involved in the botched “no-knock” drug raid that ended with Breonna Taylor’s shooting death, yet critics say justice has not been served. The decision not to indict the officer for murder — and the lack of any charges for the two other officers — is an “outrageous and offensive” result, Ben Crump, the lawyer for Taylor’s family, wrote on Twitter TWTR, +6.86%. But Crump might not necessarily be surprised by the outcome. Weeks before the indictment that resulted in wanton endangerment counts, but nothing in connection to the death of Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical worker, Crump told MarketWatch that prosecutors and courts across the country don’t do enough to hold police accountable. “Courts, with all these laws, never, ever seem to make sure that these killer cops are held accountable,” he previously said in a wide-ranging interview about how courts contribute to Black-white wealth gap. The indicted ex-officer, Brett Hankison, was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment. Taylor’s family reached a $12...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – On Wednesday, Minnesota got major attention from the presidential campaigns. Dr. Jill Biden was at a Prior Lake elementary school listening to teachers and local officials. Later in the afternoon, Donald Trump Jr. made a campaign appearance in Duluth. When you average all polls in Minnesota, it shows Joe Biden with a very narrow lead over President Trump 49% to 46%. That is close enough to be within the margin of error of most polls. Both campaigns believe they can win Minnesota in November. Dr. Jill Biden beamed with confidence as she spoke to reporters. “We can absolutely win Minnesota, I looked at the polls this morning: it’s looking good. But we are not taking any vote for granted,” she said. But the polls have been less definitive. In 2016, votes surged in for Trump, who won 78 of the state’s counties. He narrowly lost that year to Hillary Clinton, but that year has energized Republicans. Dr. Jill Biden visited Prior Lake, a suburban district that had gone Republican in recent elections, to talk about education. “In this...
    Reuters September 4, 2020 0 Comments White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Friday said negotiations on another coronavirus relief bill are continuing, but said the United States can survive the end of the year without another round of aid meant to alleviate economic pain caused by the pandemic. “Look, we can live with it. We can absolutely live with it,” Kudlow told Bloomberg TV when asked how comfortable he would be if the Republican White House and Democrats in Congress do not reach a deal by the end of the year. Kudlow added that a “smart, well-targeted” package that includes employment assistance, funding to reopen schools and an extension of small-business loans “would be helpful.” “Do we absolutely need it? No. I’m not going to precondition anything here,” he said, pointing to a Friday report that showed the U.S. unemployment rate fell to 8.4% last month while the country added 1.37 million jobs. “Right now the economy is on a self-sustaining recovery path in my judgment and will continue along those lines, and will continue to surprise on...
    Country music star Chris Stapleton claimed the recent protests over police brutality have made his idea of the America we live in a “myth.” Stapleton said the protests have given him a “broad awakening” of what goes on in America during an interview Monday with “CBS This Morning.” “I think everybody should be doing more,” he said. “It’s time for me to listen. And it’s time for other folks to listen.” “You know, I thought we were living in a different country. And that’s 100% real,” Stapleton added. “I feel like the country that I thought that we were living in was a myth.” Stapleton was then asked by host Anthony Mason if he believed black lives matter. (RELATED: Dolly Parton Weighs In On Black Lives Matter Movement And The Protests) “Do I think Black lives matter? Absolutely… I don’t know how you could think they don’t,” Stapleton said. “I think we all have a lot of work to do, you know, as individuals as a society,” he added. “And if you don’t think that, I think you’re not...
    CNN's "Reliable Sources" host Brian Stelter appeared Tuesday on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal," and people took the opportunity to call in live to the broadcast and issue searing condemnations of Stelter and his network's reporting. What are the details? One man called in to comment, starting off with a criticism of CNN, lambasting the outlet for a chyron from last week that read, "Fiery but mostly peaceful protests after police shooting," while buildings burned in the background behind a correspondent reporting from Kenosha, Wisconsin. The caller went on to refer to Stelter as "Humpty Dumpty" and "a stooge," adding, "We all know you're not reliable." According to Fox News, Stelter admitted the chyron was a "mistake." "I don't know who wrote it, probably a young producer who's trying their best under deadline in a breaking news situation," he said. "That kind of thing becomes easily criticized and probably not the right banner to put on the screen." Another man called in to confront Stelter, saying, ""You guys always talk about...

    In a Wednesday interview on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) sounded off on the sale of popular Chinese video app TikTok after President Donald Trump has floated the idea of banning it. Hawley said he still has a lot of questions about TikTok and its parent company ByteDance’s access to user data. He added that unless the United States can guarantee “total separation” from China and TikTok during a potential purchase, the app “ought to be banned.” “It’s not so clear to me that this is a good deal for the United States of America. I mean, Microsoft buying TikTok, I don’t know what that means exactly,” Hawley stated. “Does that mean that Microsoft is going to make sure that there is absolutely no Chinese involvement from the Chinese parent company ByteDance in this Microsoft deal? I mean, are they going to rebuild TikTok, are they going to have total control? I’m not clear on any of that. It looks to me like Microsoft is only getting a portion of the company and that the Chinese parent...
