That Bob Kroll. He doesn’t disappoint. He is what we in this business call good copy. I wish he was on this side of the river. I would have more opportunities to bang out pieces. It did not take long for the controversial head honcho of the Minneapolis Police Federation to publicly thumb his nose once again at elected authority after the city’s mayor, Jacob Frey, ordered a ban on cops undergoing so-called “warrior style” training, whether on duty or off. Those who violate the ban could be subject to discipline, Frey added. “Chief Medaria Arradondo’s police department rests on trust, accountability and professional service,” Frey said during his state of the city address last week. “Whereas fear-based, warrior-style trainings like killology are in direct conflict with everything that our chief and I stand for in our police department. Fear-based trainings violate the values at the very heart of community policing. When you’re … [Read more...] about Rosario: Do we want today’s cops to be more warrior than guardian, vice versa, or both?

"Megyn Kelly Today" is ending unceremoniously after its namesake host defended blackface Halloween costumes on Tuesday. NBC confirmed in a statement Friday that the morning show has been canceled, saying,"'Megyn Kelly Today' is not returning. Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other 'TODAY' co-anchors." The news comes after an NBC spokeswoman said that "given the circumstances," the network was airing repeats of the show on Thursday and Friday. Kelly left Fox News to join NBC in early 2017, but her one-hour morning show never took off as hoped. NBC News' Morgan Radford reported earlier this week that sources familiar with the situation say "conversations have already started about Megyn's exit," and it's not clear yet what will happen to her $69 million contract with NBC. The network was openly critical of Kelly after Tuesday's show. In the segment, she asked, "What is racist? You do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween, or a … [Read more...] about “Megyn Kelly Today” canceled after blackface comments
Reis Thebault, The Washington Post Published 8:36 am PDT, Friday, September 14, 2018 Early Friday Morning, President Donald Trump urged Americans not to spread rumors or false information about the impending Hurricane Florence - exactly one day after the president himself did just that about Hurricane Maria. Trump retweeted FEMA's announcement that the agency had set up a "rumor control page" to help keep the storm facts straight. "During disasters, it's critical to avoid spreading false information. Always check with official sources before sharing," read the FEMA tweet, which Trump shared shortly before 8 a.m. He also retweeted two other messages from FEMA, one in Spanish and one in English, advising residents that "Today is the last day to evacuate" and that "your window of time to leave is closing rapidly." Except, by the time Trump shared the post, the information was stale. If residents in the storm's path were to heed this call Friday, they'd be leaving their … [Read more...] about Trump tweet warns against spreading false news about hurricanes
ALARMING new traces of “drilling” have been found on a Russian spacecraft which has docked with the International Space Station, sources revealed today. Moscow had already hinted at possible sabotage over damage found a few days ago to the Soyuz MS-09 and a major investigation is underway. Now a space source admitted the alleged drilling was more extensive than previously thought. "Traces of drilling have been found not only inside the spacecraft’s living compartment,” said the source. The damage was also “on the screen of the anti-meteorite shield that covers the spacecraft from the outside and is installed 15 millimetres from the pressurised hull”. A drop in pressure due to an air leak was detected on the orbital station overnight to August 30. The cause was later discovered to be a two-millimetre hole in the orbital compartment of the manned Soyuz MS-09 space vehicle docked to the space station. Russian cosmonauts had plugged the hole patching it … [Read more...] about Mystery of ‘drill holes’ on the International Space Station deepens as MORE ‘deliberate’ damage is discovered on spacecraft
Former FBI Lawyer Lisa Page and fired FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok exchanged anti-Trump text messages during their time at the bureau. (AP, File) EXCLUSIVE – Ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, whose Trump-bashing texts made it clear who she backed in the 2016 presidential election, refers in a newly revealed message to serving as an intern “under Clinton.” Page, who exchanged tens of thousands of texts with disgraced FBI official Peter Strzok, revealed the information in one message among a new batch exclusively obtained by Fox News. “Get inspired and depressing reading that article about how Obama approached the mail room,” Page wrote Strzok on Jan. 19, 2017 - the last day of the Obama administration. “Needless to say, it was very different when I interned there under Clinton.” The article they were discussing was a Jan. 17, 2017 story in the New York Times Magazine entitled “To Obama With Love, and Hate, and … [Read more...] about Ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page ‘interned’ ‘under Clinton,’ texts reveal
