CBS suspends Rose, PBS halts his show following allegations

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 23:09:48 GMT

NEW YORK (AP) — PBS says it is immediately halting distribution of Charlie Rose's interview program and CBS News suspended him following The Washington Post's report of eight women who accused the veteran newsman of multiple unwanted sexual advances and inappropriate behavior. The women, three of whom spoke on the record in the deeply-reported story, accused Rose of groping them, walking naked in front of them and relating an erotic dream. Rose told the Post that he was "deeply embarrassed" and apologized for his behavior. Rose's PBS show features his in-depth interviews with newsmakers....



Charlie Rose accused of sexual harassment by 8 women

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:59:55 GMT

Eight women have accused TV journalist Charlie Rose of sexually harassing them — including groping them and prancing around naked in front of them, according to a new report. “It has taken 10 years and a fierce moment of cultural reckoning for me to understand these moments for what they were,” Reah Bravo, a former intern and associate producer for Rose’s PBS show, told The Washington Post. “He was a sexual predator, and I was his victim.” The women, who range in age from 21 to 27, described several incidents of sexual misconduct, including Rose groping their body parts and...

Tribune reader’s poll: Moore leads Jones for U.S. Senate seat

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:53:32 GMT

TRUSSVILLE –In an unscientific online poll conducted by The Trussville Tribune, Republican Roy Moore led Democrat Doug Jones by a healthy margin. The poll limited participating IP addresses to one entry and had 2,741 participants. The Tribune covers the cities of Trussville, Clay, Pinson, Center Point, Argo and Springville in Jefferson and St. Clair counties. When asked who participants would vote for in Alabama’s U.S. Senate race, 58.5 percent chose Moore over Jones with 35 percent.

FBI Has Not Verified the Trump Dossier

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:51:57 GMT

RUSH: “FBI Has Not Verified Trump Dossier.” That’s from Byron York at the Washington Examiner. I mean, that’s all you need. You don’t even need to read the story. The FBI has not verified Trump dossier? The Trump dossier has formed the basis for all of this, including what Mueller is doing! Now, this doesn’t surprise me. Remember, I’m a lone wolf out there telling you that Brennan and Clapper and all these guys have implied that this dossier formed the basis of this entire investigation of Trump and Russia and collusion and cheating Hillary. Nobody else has been willing...



Rep. Rooney: Better for Moore to Win, Quit in Alabama

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:41:11 GMT

It would be better for Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore to remain in the election, and if he wins, to resign his new seat and allow the state's governor to appoint a new senator, Rep. Francis Rooney said Monday.



Another conservative leads Kansas governor race after crisis

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:36:38 GMT

If you thought Kansas emerged from its long budget crisis to reject deep-red politics and move back toward the center, think again. A year ago, many voters concluded that Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s experiment in cutting income taxes had ended in failure, opening the door to a more moderate agenda. But now an even more aggressively conservative figure could win next year’s race for governor. Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Harvard-, Yale- and Oxford-educated lawyer, leads a large field of likely candidates after building a national reputation as hardline provocateur on immigration and voter ID laws. His visibility rose...



Donald Trump seen as the candidate protecting gun rights and hunting culture

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:34:38 GMT

There are many misconceptions surrounding gun ownership and hunting, Michael Gooder says on the occasion of his family’s annual “Pheasant Opener.” Hunting is all about fellowship and, in Gooder’s case, harvesting and serving the wild bird to the hunters and their guests. “It’s from the hunt to the table in one day,” the Cresco, Iowa, man explains. “It’s not just about going out into the field and killing. It’s more important to us to have a good ethical hunt, harvest a few birds, and then prepare it immediately so that people can really understand what hunting is about.” “Hunters are...



Tina Brown Goes After Google, Social Media (But Who Has Made Twitter/Facebook a Source Authority?)

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:31:46 GMT

RUSH: I mentioned earlier in the program a piece that I saw with some quotes from Tina Brown. Tina Brown ran the New Yorker magazine and Vanity Fair for a while, and she also did Talk magazine, which was financed by Harvey Weinstein. But she said she was not Harvey’s type. So that means Harvey didn’t hit on her. But it didn’t go anywhere — Talk magazine didn’t go anywhere — so it went defunct. But in her day, she was considered the queen of New York media. She and her husband, Sir Harry Edwards… Not Edwards, Evans. Harry Edwards...



UPDATE: Roy Moore Jumps to 15 POINT LEAD in PredictIt Market as Accuser Accusations Fall Apart

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:31:33 GMT

Before the Washington Post story broke, Roy Moore was almost a lock to win at 89 percent in PredictIt’s Alabama Senate race prediction market. After the allegations surfaced, Moore’s odds dropped to 59 percent that day. He remained a slight favorite over Doug Jones, who also saw a significant bump on the news, until Monday when a fifth woman came forward with allegations against Moore. On Monday afternoon, for the first time in the race, PredictIt traders had Doug Jones in the lead at 47 percent to Moore’s 38 percent. Moore has since regained a huge lead in the PredictIt market....



Democrat Doug Jones: The Second Amendment Has ‘Limitations’

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:21:38 GMT

Doug Jones, the Democrat running for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat, says he loves to hunt but the Second Amendment has “limitations.” He believes that every right enumerated in the Bill of Rights is limited, and the Second Amendment is no exception. According to the Alabama Political Reporter, Jones described himself as “a Second Amendment guy,” but stressed that some gun control is necessary. He said, “We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another.” This position is contrary to the clear language of the amendment, which states that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not...

Joining 'sea of black masks' makes alleged Trump inauguration rioters guilty, prosecutor says

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:11:22 GMT

A federal prosecutor said Monday that six alleged rioters are guilty of charges that carry potential prison time because they joined “a sea of black masks” on the day of President Trump’s inauguration and didn’t leave after some marchers committed acts of vandalism. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Kerkhoff admitted there is no evidence that any of the six committed vandalism in downtown Washington, and focused her opening trial remarks instead on fear the larger group caused locals as some activists damaged shop windows and vehicles. In her opening statement, Kerkhoff used the term “sea of black masks” six times to...



Roy Moore: Mitch McConnell loved being top Senate Republican under Obama

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:08:04 GMT

Mitch McConnell loved being top Senate Republican under Obama. He didn't have to do anything. But now, he blocks the MAGA agenda. His life would be easier with one less Republican. SAD!



South Korea Vying with China as New Benefactor for Philippines

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 21:57:32 GMT

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — South Korea is vying with China to help develop the Philippines, as the aid recipient’s president crafts a multi-country foreign policy with no clear favorite. South Korean President Moon Jae-in told counterparts from the Philippines, as well as nine other Southeast Asian countries at regional summits last week, that Seoul was “the best partner to share the experience” of economic growth. South Korea, he said, can aid the others in high-tech, railways, clean energy and water management. The Philippines stands near the front of the line for that assistance, analysts say. China pledged $24 billion in aid...

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 21:32:41 GMT

Kathy Griffin can't stop whining. In a new YouTube video, the comedian complained about not being able to find work after she says she was blacklisted by Hollywood for posing with a severed, bloodied head of President Trump.

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 21:28:45 GMT

Obama official attacked the Trump administration in an interview with an Australian news outlet. Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives, blasted President Trump and his administration in a recent interview with news.com.au. Jackson told the overseas outlet that it was hard to watch Trump’s presidency after years of working for President Obama at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 21:24:05 GMT

Back in October, after the Mandalay Bay spree killing, Ohio resident Aaron Lawrence “had an epiphany.” He realized he could stop spree killings by destroying his AR-15. Or something like that. Anyway, it worked! PR-wise. WCET gave Mr. Lawrence’s meaningless protest all the attention it didn’t deserve. As wkrg.com reports, there’s been a copycat AR annihilation . . .

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 21:15:29 GMT

This week, families across our state are unboxing their Thanksgiving décor, choosing table cloths, and deciding who is going to be responsible for what dish this coming Thursday. It’s that time of the year when we communities come together, put family disputes aside and get in the holiday spirit. Unfortunately, this holiday season comes with a different taste for many as hundreds of Iowa families will eat their Thanksgiving meals with uncertainty, anxiety and fear. The lives of hundreds of families across our states are at risk thanks to Donald Trump’s draconian immigration policies. Many of your immigrant friends and...
