CNN also announced it was terminating Griffin's appearance its New Year's show, after earlier criticizing the photos as...

    On Thursday, the New York Times issued a thousand-word apology for using the pronoun “she” to describe Asia Kate Dillon, an actress (Actor? ... Person?). Dillon, who appears in the TV series “Orange is the New Black” and “Billions,” identifies as “non-binary” and prefers to be referred to as “they.” The Public Editor at the Times, Liz Spayd, wrote the drawn-out apology for an op-ed that contained the clause “Asia Kate Dillon discussing her nonbinary gender.” Spayd writes that the mistake happened because editors “were under the impression that ‘they’ could not be used as a singular pronoun,” andcalls upon the Associated Press to...

    Hillary Clinton had to eat humble pie twice on election night. Clinton apologized to President Obama for her bruising loss — right after calling Donald Trump to offer him “congratulations,” according to a new book chronicling her 2016 presidential bid called “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.” “Mr. President, I’m sorry,” she said, according to a Washington Post review of the book due out Tuesday. The White House urged Clinton to concede as Trump claimed battleground states — some by slim margins — because Obama wanted to avoid a messy recount.

    The history professor at California State University, Fresno who appeared to advocate for the death of President Donald Trump on Twitter has apologized profusely and taken a temporary leave of absence in an undisclosed location because he now fears for his personal safety. The professor, Lars Maischak, composed the tweets around the end of February. The tweets called for Trump to “hang” in order to “save American democracy.” “The sooner and the higher, the better.” The only “cure” for racist people is a bullet to their head, the tweets also said. Maischak used hashtags including “#TheResistance” and “#DeathToFascism.” Maischak says...

    Vice President Mike Pence has offered to broker a peace accord with the White House and the House Freedom Caucus, a move that could lead the small but powerful faction of Congress to eventually support President Trump’s health-care overhaul, the FOX Business Network has learned. The president’s health care initiative failed two weeks ago amid criticism from the Freedom Caucus—a fiscally conservative faction inside the House GOP – that it didn’t include enough free-market initiatives to effectively reverse ObamaCare’s vast array of insurance mandates that form the current health care system. Without the support of the 36-member Freedom Caucus, Speaker...

    Founder of Infowars and conspiracy-peddling media personality Alex Jones apologized for his role in spreading the baseless viral theory that claimed Hillary Clinton and other Democratic leaders were involved in a child sex trafficking ring run out of a Washington, D.C., pizzeria. Jones on Friday shared a six-minute video on his website in which he distanced himself from the “Pizzagate” theory that emerged after Wikileaks dumped the emails of Clinton Campaign chair John Podesta. The story, he said, “was based upon what we now believe was an incorrect narrative.”

    Infowars apologized on Friday for its role in perpetuating the "Pizzagate" conspiracy theory that connected a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant to a child sex ring run by Hillary Clinton. Talk show host Alex Jones, an avid Trump supporter who runs the site, went on air to read a statement where he personally apologized to James Alefantis, the owner of Comet Ping Pong, which was repeatedly harassed and threatened for its alleged connection to Pizzagate. It was at that restaurant in December that a man from North Carolina walked in and fired a rifle as he looked for evidence supporting the...

    Former Defense Secretary and CIA Director Leon Panetta said Monday that there is no evidence “at all” to back President Donald Trump’s claim that his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, ordered wiretaps inside Trump Tower during last year’s election. The president, Panetta said, owes Obama an apology and ought to admit that “a mistake was made” when he leveled the accusation on Twitter earlier this month. “I don't think there is any evidence here,” Panetta said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked about Trump’s wiretapping allegation. “The president frankly ought to acknowledge that a mistake was made, apologize to President...

    The market was caught offguard by yesterday's dramatic raid of three Caterpillar offices, including its Peoria Headquarters, which reportedly included agents from the IRS, FDIC and Commerce Department, and sent the stock tumbling by the most in over half a year. The raid took place just one week after former CAT CEO Doug Oberhelman met with Donald Trump, which prompted the president to say that he "loves" Caterpillar. While the catalyst behind the raid still remains unclear, we reminded readers yesterday that this was not the first time CAT has gotten in trouble with the authorities: back in 2014 CAT...

    A Baltimore Orioles executive says he'd prefer President Trump not throw out a first pitch at Camden Yards without first apologizing for statements that could be viewed as problematic "from a race, ethnicity, religious, gender, disability" standpoint.   John Angelos, son of owner Peter Angelos and the Orioles' executive vice president and chief operating officer, said on a Baltimore-based podcast that divisive rhetoric and actions during Trump's campaign and since his swearing-in require that the president re-double efforts to embrace all members of the community.

    Quislings: At the same time our president springs dangerous terrorists from prison, he has quietly promoted an Islamic cleric who has issued fatwas calling for the death of U.S. troops with "child bombs." The State Department last week had to apologize for singing the praises of the creep — Sheik Abdallah Bin Bayyah — in a Tweeted message promoting his Muslim Brotherhood organization. But officials there are only sorry they got caught. The same bunch last year issued a visa for the radical cleric so he could visit, of all places, the White House. That's right, the administration knew full...
