    A photo that appeared in CNN's "Fight for the White House: Joe Biden's Long Journey," showed Biden and his son at a Redskins' football game during the 1970s. His vice-presidential running mate sought to distance herself from what she called "an extremely upsetting demonstration of racial insensitivity on so many levels." "First, there is the egregious exploitation of Native Americans," Harris charged. "Using these noble savages as a team 'mascot' insults their culture. I am shocked that Joe would be a fan of this team and that he would expose his young son to such filth. It is no wonder...

    “CNN appears to have altered a widely seen photograph of Joe Biden with his young son to remove the logo of the Washington Redskins,” reports Fox News. If CNNLOL is willing to go to all the trouble to lie about little things like this to protect Joe Biden and to defeat Trump, imagine the lengths CNNLOL is currently going to to lie and mislead and gaslight over big things. Stuff that matters. Thought of that should put a chill straight up your spine. In June, on Father’s Day, Biden, the Democrat nominee for president, shared a photo of himself and...

    CNN appears to have altered a widely-seen photograph of Joe Biden with his young son to remove the logo of the Washington Redskins. The Democratic nominee and former vice president initially shared the photo in June to commemorate Father's Day. CNN PANNED FOR ON-AIR GRAPHIC READING 'FIERY BUT MOSTLY PEACEFUL PROTEST' IN FRONT OF KENOSHA FIRE However, when CNN featured the photograph in its Monday night special "Fight for the White House: Joe Biden's Long Journey," the Redskins logo was removed from the hat. CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

    by Samantha Foster CNN appears to have used a doctored image of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden with his young son, in a gushing propaganda "documentary" clearly produced to promote the former VP for the presidency. The Democratic nominee initially shared back in June, a photo of himself and a young Hunter Biden from a Washington Redskins game, to commemorate Father's Day. But when CNN used the photo in their Monday night special "Fight for the White House: Joe Biden's Long Journey," the Redskins logo was removed from the hat! The "news" network was immediately castigated for such "Soviet-style propaganda." Back...

    Shortly after running back Derrius Guice was arrested Friday on domestic violence-related charges, the Washington Football Team announced it was releasing the 23-year-old running back. Guice faces charges that include one count of strangulation, a felony, according to a spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. The other charges are three counts of assault and battery as well as one count of destruction of property... Washington selected Guice in the second round of the 2018 draft after the running back fell out of the first round because of questions about his maturity and durability. At the time, the team felt...

    Effective immediately, Washington will call itself the "Washington Football Team" pending the adoption of a new name, the franchise announced. This is not a final renaming and rebranding for the team; this is the name it wants to use until the adoption of a new name at some point. The team will continue the process of retiring the former name and hopes to be entirely rid of it on physical and digital spaces in the next 50 days, by the Sept. 13 regular-season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    So long, Redskins. The movement sparked by the death of George Floyd has, at best, a mixed record on police reform, but it is racking up victories in the struggle against statues and problematic names. Making the police better is difficult; changing the name of a football team is an easy win.Of course, the RedskinsÂ’ name did not trouble many American Indians, quite a few of whom took pride in it. Nor was it offensive to the many black football fans in the D.C. area who support the team. Indeed, the name was the least of the teamÂ’s problems.Rather,...

    After years of pressure, the Washington Redskins National Football League team has agreed to change its name. As compensation for the loss of value of the team's inventory of trademarked gear, the team will be renamed the Washington Senators and be granted the privilege of employing a filibuster play in all home games. Once the Senators' team captain or head coach notifies the referee that the team is calling for the filibuster play the ball may not be snapped unless 60% of the players on the field agree to allow the ball to be snapped. Head Coach Ron Rivera says...

    Nearly half of respondents of a national poll conducted by Morning Consult are just fine with the name of NFL team The Washington Redskins. The football team, which has been for years accused of racism against Native Americans despite polls finding Native American majorities support the name, has been slated for change to placate a small group of online leftist agitators. However, it turns out that far more Americans believe the name ought to remain than those who prefer a more culturally sensitive name. According to the poll, 49 percent of respondents believe the Redskins should keep their nickname, with...

    The removal of a nickname won’t end Daniel Snyder’s problems. Shortly after the Washington Redskins owner announced that his team would no longer be known by its present name, a series of cryptic tweets from local reporters emerged, warning of an imminent bombshell set to shake the franchise to its core. “The warped and toxic culture of the Washington Football Team is about to be exposed in a sickening fashion . . . Again,” wrote CBS’ Jason La Canfora, a former team beat reporter.

    Washington owner Dan Snyder and new head coach Ron Rivera will "develop a new name and design" approach, the team said Monday. However, Martin McCaulay, an actuary from Alexandria, Virginia, jumped on the speculation of a name change way before the announcement. McCaulay has filed numerous trademark claims in the last six years for potential monikers for the Washington football team. A search by CBS News in the United States Patent and Trademark Office's database found at least seven names that have been registered in just the last month alone. Among them include the Washington Red Wolves, Washington Redtails, Washington...

    The Washington Redskins announced Monday that they would be retiring their team nickname and logo, but had not yet decided on their new moniker. In short order, the Navajo Nation offered a new name they believe would be a fitting replacement for the NFL franchise. Two hours later, Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez released a statement celebrating the Washington, D.C., area team's move, while noting that the franchise made its decision due to "mounting pressure and advocacy of Indigenous peoples...and many other warriors who fought long and hard for this change."

    Washington’s NFL franchise has announced that it is retiring the Redskins name, and plans to introduce a new name soon. Monday’s announcement comes just days after the organization released a statement July 3 saying it would be undertaking a “thorough review” of the team’s name, a process the team said in Monday’s announcement has “begun in earnest.” In an interview July 4, Coach Ron Rivera — who is working with owner Daniel Snyder to choose a name — said he hoped the new name would be in place by the start of the 2020 NFL season. Others have said it...

    In the realm of 2020’s ‘stupid decisions made in the name of racial sensitivity’ changing the name of the Washington Redskins, while still stupid, is perhaps towards the bottom of the list. Many have already suggested changing the team’s mascot rather than its name: Given the direction the NFL is headed these days why not go a step further and require all NFL teams change their names to various potato cultivars? The options are numerous and colorful making name choices plentiful. For example how about the Green Bay Jewels: The Minnesota Purple Vikings: The New York  Roosters: The Buffalo Butterballs:...
