  • Georgetown Law professor caught complaining about black students on Zoom: video

    03/12/2021 11:58:10 AM PST · by son of terrence · 24 replies
    A white Georgetown Law professor was fired Thursday after getting caught on video belittling black students during a Zoom call with a colleague, saying they “usually” perform “just plain at the bottom” of her classes. Georgetown Law Dean Bill Treanor said he was “appalled” by the conversation between now-terminated adjunct professor Sandra Sellers and another faculty member, David Batson, who was placed on administrative leave pending an investigation. “I informed Professor Sellers that I was terminating her relationship with Georgetown Law effective immediately,” Treanor wrote in a statement released Thursday afternoon. “During our conversation, she told me that she had...
  • What a Rush: Meet the man who canned Limbaugh

    The Coeur d'Alene Press ^ | February 20, 2021 | Paul Leonard, Jr.
    When I was a much younger man in Kansas City in 1984, Rush Limbaugh worked for me. I fired him. As you might suspect, managing Rush was a formidable challenge, and the fact that he was largely unmanageable was probably a part of the secret sauce that fueled his rise to meteoric success. I am saddened by his passing. And like him or hate him, any fair-minded or knowledgeable analysis of Rush's career would have to end by concluding that he was probably one of the most influential media forces in the past 100 years. In 1984, I was a...
  • Was Lou Dobbs the sacrificial lamb so Fox News could protect their other hosts?

    Lou Dobbs has been canceled by Fox News following a lawsuit filed by SmartMatic. It’s a despicable and cowardly move, one we’ve grown to expect from the former favorite news channel among conservatives. Was Dobbs’ sacking just the beginning or is it intended as the end to stave off the lawsuit? It’s notable that neither Tucker Carlson nor Sean Hannity have been canceled. They and other Fox News hosts have talked about or had guests who talked about Dominion Voting Systems and their alleged role in voter fraud.

  • The last time America fired a president

    (CNN)It doesn't happen very often, the firing of a president. In the last 100 years, the only elected presidents to be voted out were Herbert Hoover, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and, now, Donald Trump. Trump has announced he will not attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. Not a surprise. The outgoing president isn't exactly known for his class, grace or humility in accepting loss. Given Trump's role in inciting a crowd to attack the Capitol in a bid to stop Biden's victory from being certified, if he chose to attend, it would certainly make for an awkward occasion.
  • AG Bill Barr says CIA did NOT 'spy' on Donald Trump's campaign, slapping down president's claims - and says John Durham's probe is focusing on a 'small group' at the FBI

    attorney general Barr is reflecting on the calls he made that benefitted President Trump and a few that didn't in his final days in office – as he said the CIA didn't stray beyond its international spy brief in 2016. Barr told the Wall Street Journal he was suspicious that CIA agents – who are barred from spying on Americans – had spied on President Trump's campaign. The president repeatedly alleged publicly he was spied on. But according to Barr, it didn't happen. 'The CIA stayed in its lane,' he told the Wall Street Journal in an interview.

    American Public Media Group has fired Minnesota Public Radio’s only Black classical music host Garrett McQueen. McQueen announced his firing on his social media accounts Thursday morning. McQueen said he was taken off the air after his shift on Aug. 25. He was then given two warnings — one of which was about his need to improve communication and the other warning was for switching out scheduled music to play pieces he felt were more appropriate to the moment and more diverse, McQueen told MPR News. “When things happened in the news or when there were hours of programming that...

    All it took for a popular Michigan high school teacher and coach to get fired was a simple social media post reading, “I’m done being silent. Donald Trump is our president. Don’t @ me.”Justin Kucera, a social studies teacher and varsity baseball coach at Walled Lake Western High School, posted the tweet on July 6th and was given the option to “resign or be fired” only four days later.“I was required to meet with [human resources], the superintendent, and my principal [on July 10]. They initially took my statement on why I tweeted those tweets and they told me they...

The stranger followed Cafferty and took a picture of him as his arm hung out the window of...

    On Friday, Trump fired the inspector general of the State Department, Steve Linick. In accordance with the 2008 Inspector General Reform Act, which protects inspectors general from being fired without cause, Trump informed Congress in writing about the intent to fire Linick, expressing that he no longer had the “fullest confidence” in Linick, who was appointed to that position in 2013 by Barack Obama. Democrats naturally have come out of the woodwork to express their faux outrage, and to launch an investigation into the firing over allegations that Trump acted to protect Pompeo. But where were these Democrats in 2009...

    An NBC affiliate station in Minnesota confirmed Friday that it has parted ways with a staff meteorologist, citing “continued violations” of the station’s “news ethics” and other policies. KARE-TV of Minneapolis did not specify exactly why Sven Sundgaard was dismissed but he recently drew reaction from the public after reposting a local rabbi’s online message regarding crowds protesting against coronavirus lockdowns. That message, attributed to Rabbi Michael Adam Latz, had described groups protesting against lockdown measures as “white nationalist Nazi sympathizer gun fetishist miscreants,” according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Within two hours of KARE confirming Sundgaard’s firing on...

Modly submitted his resignation letter to Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Tuesday after meeting with his him one-on-one, Politico reported. Neither Esper nor the White House pressured Modly to resign, an official told the website, and it is unclear whether Esper will accept it.

    President Donald Trump has fired the intelligence community’s chief watchdog, Michael Atkinson, who was the first to sound the alarm to Congress last September about an “urgent” complaint he’d received from an intelligence official involving Trump’s communications with Ukraine’s president. Trump formally notified the Senate and House intelligence committees of his intention to fire Atkinson and remove him from his duties, to take effect 30 days from Friday, according to two congressional officials and a copy of the letter obtained by POLITICO dated April 3. “This is to advise that I am exercising my power as President to remove from...

    Before Robyn Polak attended President Donald Trump's Jan. 14 rally in Milwaukee, she expressed her support for him on Facebook by posting a "MAGA 2020" comment on a news story about the visit. She said that comment, and possibly a few others like it, got her fired from her job. Polak, a South Milwaukee resident who was the only dental assistant at Precision Dental MKE, 6203 S. Howell Ave., said someone found out where she worked, went on her employer’s Facebook page and posted a negative review. The person did not recommend the dental office saying “employees spouting [sic] racist comments on Facebook.” Polak said she didn’t have...

    Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg has been fired, the company announced Monday morning. David Calhoun was named new CEO. CFO Greg Smith will serve as interim CEO until Calhoun takes on the role on Jan. 13. With the "new leadership," Boeing said in a statement, the company "will operate with a renewed commitment to full transparency, including effective and proactive communication with the FAA, other global regulators and its customers." Muilenburg's ousting comes days after the Boeing Starliner’s failed mission to the International Space Station.
