    CNN’s Twitter account tried to get away with saying the Flint airport stabber “said something in Arabic” right before he attacked a policeman, but fellow social media users quickly corrected the network Wednesday. Reports indicated that witnesses heard the stabber shout “Allahu Akbar” before he attacked, but CNN chose to write “something in Arabic” instead.

The stabbing at Bishop International Airport, in the city of Flint, comes amid a wave of jihadist-inspired attacks in Europe, most recently a foiled bomb assault at a train station in Belgium. US officials identified the suspected assailant, who is in custody and cooperating with investigators, as a 49-year-old Canadian resident from Quebec named Amor Ftouhi. "We're investigating this incident today as an act of terrorism," FBI special agent David Gelios told a news conference,...

    CNN has formally severed ties with commentator Donna Brazile, a spokesman confirmed to Mediaite Monday. CNN and ABC News had both suspended Brazile after she was tapped to serve as acting DNC head following the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. In theory, that arrangement was only temporary, but CNN made it permanent as late as two weeks ago in the wake of hacked emails showing she provided questions in advance to the Hillary Clinton campaign.

    Thousands of Flint, Mich., residents have been warned that they could lose their homes if they don’t pay outstanding water bills — even as the city has just begun replacing lead-tainted pipes after a contamination crisis linked to a dozen deaths. Warning letters were mailed to 8,002 residents in April, according to the city, a few weeks after state officials ended a program that was paying the majority of their water bills. But many Flint residents still don’t trust their taps — lining up for free bottled water or installing city-recommended filters after revelations in 2014 and 2015 that dangerous...

    Under authority granted the agency by the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act of 2016, the EPA just issued a $100 million grant to the beleaguered city of Flint, Michigan, to help in the effort at replacing the city’s badly corroded and lead-tainted system of water pipes. Some progressive critics of President Donald Trump have pointed to his proposed budget cuts at the Environmental Protection Agency as proof that he is a terrible president who doesn’t care about ensuring that Americans have clean air and water. However, the recent report from The Daily Caller about Trump’s EPA grant just...

    A few years before Flint’s lead crisis, city officials were taking money from a dedicated municipal water fund to pay for other uses. These fund-raids continued — using water service revenues to pay for unrelated city spending — even as the water fund accumulated a $9 million deficit in 2011.

    The minister of a Methodist church made national headlines after she scolded Donald Trump for injecting politics into a campaign stop. The Rev. Faith Green Timmons came on stage and stopped Trump in the middle of his remarks at Bethel United Methodist Church. She told him to stay focused on the water crisis and not Hillary Clinton. “I invited you here to thank us for what we’ve done in Flint, not give a political speech," the reverend told Mr. Trump. Trump graciously complied with her demand. But something doesn't pass the smell test. Consider this screen grab from the minister's...

    During Donald Trump’s visit to Flint, Michigan on Wednesday, the Republican nominee commented on how the automobile manufacturing industry has moved to Mexico — impacting trade — and how people in Flint can’t drink the water, much like the water in Mexico. “It used to be cars were made in Flint, and you couldn’t drink the water in Mexico,” Trump stated. “Now, the cars are made in Mexico and you can’t drink the water in Flint.” “That’s not good,” he added, as people chuckled in response.
