    BEDFORD Co., Va. (WSET) -- A few days after resigning as Liberty University's president, Jerry Falwell Jr. was injured in a fall after drinking, according to a 911 call obtained by WSET.

    When the coronavirus began picking up speed in early March, most governors made the hard decision to lockdown their states. This led almost every college in the country to move the rest of their spring semesters online, and they sent most students packing. But Liberty University quickly became an epicenter of media controversy when President Jerry Falwell Jr. announced he would reopen his campus to students who needed to stay, especially international ones who had nowhere else to go. Falwell was accused of putting the campus community in a dangerous and reckless situation and publicly shamed as the mainstream media...

    Eleven students who attend Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, have come down with coronavirus symptoms after returning to campus. Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. decided to reopen the campus to students at the end of spring break despite public health officials warning him not to do so. The Democratic governor of Virginia Ralph Northam had previously banned gatherings of more than 100 people in the state to which Liberty said it would transition most classes to online.

    Students at Liberty University in Virginia gathered Friday to protest in the wake of news reports containing allegations that school president Jerry Falwell Jr. improperly benefited from the institution and disparaged students in emails. Students joined together at the private evangelical university known for being an influential hub in conservative politics and held up signs calling for accountability and an investigation. Elizabeth Brooks, a junior majoring in politics and policy, told The Associated Press by phone that a recent Politico Magazine story as well as a Reuters report prompted the protest at the school in Lynchburg. She said about 35...

    Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. told Hill.TV on Tuesday that he has begun sharing information with the FBI in what he alleged was a criminal conspiracy against him by former board members at the school. Falwell said in an exclusive interview that in the coming days the FBI will review university documents at the Lynchburg, Va., campus. He accused former colleagues of stealing school property in the form of emails and then sharing them with reporters in an effort to damage his reputation. The FBI did not immediately respond to a request for comment. “Our attorneys have determined that...

    Evangelical Christian leader Jerry Falwell Jr. defended President Donald Trump's comment that there were "very fine people on both sides" in the Charlottesville protests, saying the president "had information I didn't have" about who participated in the demonstration against removal of a Confederate statue in the Virginia city. "He has inside information that I don't have," Falwell told ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz on "This Week" Sunday. "I don't know if there were historical purists [at the protests] who were trying to preserve some statues. I don't know." The Liberty University president added of the president, "I...

    It's become a truism this election season that whatever you expect to happen with Donald Trump, you're probably wrong. So add this to the list of surprises: On Monday, the thrice-married Republican frontrunner, who described himself as pro-choice as recently as 2000, traveled to the heart of conservative evangelism only to be greeted as a conquering hero. Trump spoke at the Liberty University convocation on Martin Luther King Day. Liberty is the largest Christian university in the world... So one might have expected that Trump, who declined to name his favorite Bible verse on the campaign trail, would have received...

    The Washington Times and Liberty University were planning for a year. And then the Republican Party pulled the plug. More than a year ago, huddled in secret, the Republican National Committee began negotiations with conservative news organizations to wrest at least one presidential primary debate from the grip of the mainstream media. It was to be an event by and for the GOP's base, free of the constraints of a big network, to ensure candidates a forum to speak about conservative issues in a conservative frame for conservative voters. That debate would have happened this week at Liberty University with...
