    SEABROOK, N.H. — Sometimes Catrina Costello would allegedly yell obscenities and stare at Stephen VanDalinda and his wife, Erin. Other times she would shine a green laser beam toward them or threaten them with her two pit bills. The feud between the two families, according to neighbours and court records, goes back several years. It came to head Wednesday night when Costello allegedly ran the couple down as they walked their dog on a quiet, two-lane street near their house.

    Rep. Ryan Costello (R-Pa.) said that he is leaving Congress in part because all he is ever asked about is President Trump, according to CNN. "No matter what I say or do, I feel all I do is answer questions about Donald Trump rather than health insurance or tax policy," Costello told CNN. Costello announced in March that he would not run for reelection, blaming the partisan political environment, including the actions of Trump. "I feel, increasingly, that if you're a member of Congress, they assume that you're not good," Costello told CNN. "They assume that you're not telling the...

    BELLEVILLE, Ill. ( - A Southern Illinois state representative is pushing a plan to end the state's program to register and identify gun owners. Representative Jerry Costello said the Firearm Owners ID program is losing money and creating more bureaucracy for lawful gun owners. "It's very important to my constituents in downstate Illinois," Costello said. Currently the FOID cards are needed to purchase and possess guns and buy ammunition. Applicants must submit to a background check.

    I confess that today I was … triggered. Watching CNN in the office, as is my habit while I work, I heard Carol Costello repeat a common claim made by those on the Left who have zero understanding of the American founding. In this particular segment of “CNN Newsroom,” she asked her guests about something President Trump said today. Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast, the president said that the people in that room were united by their common humanity. “We are not just flesh and bone and blood, we are human beings with souls, Our republic was formed on...

    Tell us, Carol: the leaders of which Black Lives Matter chant would you suggest Donald Trump “reach out” to: “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” or “what do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!” On her CNN show this morning, Carol Costello suggested to Trump supporter Scottie Nell Hughes that Trump should be “reaching out” to Black Lives Matter. When Hughes replied that the Trump campaign has reached out to the black community, Costello interrupted incredulously “to Black Lives Matter?” Perhaps someone can do the research and find the last time Costello suggested to...

    The Commissioner of Labor for Oklahoma, Mark Costello, was killed in a stabbing at a fast food restaurant in Oklahoma City on Sunday, local broadcasters reported, citing unnamed sources.

"So sorry to hear the tragic news about Mark Costello," Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett said in a Tweet. Local broadcaster News 9, citing unnamed sources, reported that Costello was...

    CNN’s Carol Costello apologized on Thursday for joking about a police recording of Bristol Palin. "Over the past few days I have been roundly criticized for joking about a brawl involving the Palin family. In retrospect, I deserve such criticism and would like to apologize," Costello said in a statement to POLITICO. On Wednesday, before playing a tape in which Bristol Palin describes an alleged altercation at a party in Wasilla, Alaska, Costello said, “This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across. Well, come across in a long time anyway.” In the...

    CNN boss Jeff Zucker wants to revamp the struggling network, but nobody reportedly wants to work there. A CNN source told the New York Post that the unstable network is having problems recruiting key talent to a place that was once known as "the most trusted name in news." "We can’t find talent who wants to come to CNN. No one wants to come because we scrap things after a year," the source told the Post. "Every talent agency we contact can’t get us anyone... Even talent from larger local markets refuse to come here, because they are afraid.” Daytime...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- CNN's Carol Costello was more than prepared for her contentious live interview with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed on Wednesday, having spent frustrating hours caught in the epic traffic snarls caused by the rare Southern snowstorm. Unlike other motorists, Costello wasn't stranded overnight in her car, but it took two tries and more than three hours for her to drive two miles to her home Tuesday from the news network's Atlanta headquarters.

    Spectacle is a TV show you can find on cable or Netflix. It is an Elton John production featuring Elvis Costello as the interviewer. Elvis Costello introduced Smokey Robinson with a musical number. Then he said something that I thought was a great and succinct summation about meeting Smokey Robinson: "If Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, and Groucho Marx came out and sat down, I could not [be more pleased and impressed.]" If found it fascinating that Smokey showed up with a necklace and a Christian cross displayed prominently. I don't know anything about Smokey's faith or practice, but this little...

    When Big Guy told the Press Corpse at his Pop Up Presser yesterday that he didn’t call Romney a felon he was technically correct: he didn’t call Romney a felon himself: somebody else did that for him. I guess what he actually said was that “nobody accused Romney of being a felon.” Meet Nobody: Nobody Cutter, deputy campaign manager, Team Obama, on ABC’s This Weekend. “Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony,” or he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American...
