    When we checked in with Newsweek last week, the magazine had just published a news article critical of the magazine’s owners. That article only saw the light of day after a number of reporters and editors threatened to quit if it were spiked. It came after two top editors were fired and a raid based on an investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney. Today, the Daily Beast reports the struggling magazine is unable to pay its rent and may face eviction. Guardian Life Insurance, the sub-landlord for the company’s downtown Manhattan office, informed International Business Times Inc. in late November...

    San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi looks like hell be updating his resume after suffering a landslide loss in his re-election bid last night. \ Mirkarimi was in office when Kate Steinle was shot and killed by Francisco Sanchez, a five-time deported illegal alien. It set off a national debate about sanctuary cities, San Francisco becoming one of them in 1989. In July, Mirkarimi defended the policy, telling CNNs Jake Tapper that the policy makes the city safer. Nevertheless, there were other reasons why Mirkarimi was booted. His tenure was dotted with controversy, one of them, as Katie mentioned, being a...

    An interesting result, as it raises a question that isnt often asked about declining NFL ratings. How many people are boycotting because they *agree* with the player protests? SEE ALSO: Julian Assange may be stuck in the Ecuadorean embassy forever To think, 33 percent of NFL fans missed out on one of the worst quarterbacked playoff games of all time this past Saturday in Jacksonville. If theres any doubt that Kaepernicks exile from the league is due partly, or even mostly, to politics rather than ability, go watch game film of Jags/Bills and ask if either team wouldnt have benefited...

    WASHINGTON More than 700 people have left the Environmental Protection Agency since President Trump took office, a wave of departures that puts the administration nearly a quarter of the way toward its goal of shrinking the agency to levels last seen during the Reagan administration. Of the employees who have quit, retired or taken a buyout package since the beginning of the year, more than 200 are scientists. An additional 96 are environmental protection specialists, a broad category that includes scientists as well as others experienced in investigating and analyzing pollution levels. Nine department directors have departed the agency...

    The NFL's two-year TV downturn is taking a bite out of broadcast TV partners like Fox Sports that fork over billions for rights to live games. Fox Sports staffers in Los Angeles are bracing for a wave of possible budget cutbacks due to disappointing NFL advertising sales this season, sources tell Sporting News. Another important factor: With Team USA eliminated from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, Fox can't count on soccer ad dollars next year to get well from an ad standpoint.

    New York activist Tamika Mallory says she was booted from an American Airlines flight in Miami after a pilot inserted himself into a dispute over her seat assignment. Mallory, a co-chair of the Womens March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. It definitely was white male aggression. I was singled out, I was disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me. I was...

He rose for the catch then came down awkwardly, his leg appearing to get caught under cornerback Casey Howard. Beckham was carted off, tears flowing as the Giants 0-4 season could be over already....

    The NFL allowed players to use the leagues national stage to disgrace the flag and the anthem.

    Hillary Clinton says Bernie Sanderss reluctance to concede the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination before the partys convention was disrespectful, hurtful and stood in stark contrast to the way she handled her primary loss to Barack Obama in 2008. I had such a different experience in 08, Clinton said in an interview with the Pod Save America podcast that was posted on Tuesday. Once it was over, it was over. And I quickly endorsed President Obama. I worked really hard to get him elected. I was still arguing with my supporters at the Denver convention, telling people, Dont be ridiculous. Youve...
