    Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with killing two people during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the summer, was recently spotted drinking at a bar and posing for photos with apparent Proud Boys sympathizers after being released from jail on $2 million bond, prosecutors say. Now, prosecutors in the state have filed a motion to modify Rittenhouse's bond conditions. Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time of the shooting, was charged as an adult with two counts of first-degree homicide and one count of attempted homicide. He also faces charges of recklessly endangering the safety of two other victims and possessing...

    There was a time when racism could be funny. On Jan. 12, 1971, a skittish CBS television network premiered an unusual television show as a mid-season replacement in its primetime lineup. The sitcom, modeled on a successful British version, starred veteran actor Carroll O’Connor as Archie Bunker, a bigoted dockworker living in Astoria with his dimwitted wife, feminist daughter and liberal son-in-law. “The program you are about to see called ‘All in the Family,’ ” read a text advisory before the show (it would now be termed a trigger warning). “It seeks to throw a humorous spotlight on frailties, prejudices,...

    ViacomCBS is shedding another 100 employees this week across the company as the merger between Viacom and CBS — and the resulting streamlining efforts that have followed — continue to ripple through the combined corporation. The layoffs impact a range of departments across ViacomCBS, from sales to shared services such as finance and legal, per a source familiar with the situation. Several of the impacted divisions are reducing their teams by one or two employees, while others are being more greatly affected. Personnel at the company’s New York and Los Angeles offices will be impacted, though it is unclear which...

    Washington — The Supreme Court wrestled Tuesday — one week after the presidential election and in the midst of a global pandemic — with the future of the 2010 landmark health care law championed by Democrats and attacked by Republicans, with two justices on the conservative wing of the bench expressing skepticism toward arguments the Affordable Care Act should be struck down in its entirety. .. But Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, one of the three justices on the court appointed by President Trump, both signaled they disagree with arguments from Republican-led states that Obamacare should fall...

    On Monday, the network introduced an initiative that requires these shows to ensure that 50% of their casts are Black, Indigenous or People of Color, or BIPOC. Additionally, the network has committed to putting at least 25% of its development budget towards creators and producers who are BIPOC. These reality TV targets will kick off during the 2021-22 broadcast season. “The reality TV genre is an area that’s especially underrepresented, and needs to be more inclusive across development, casting, production and all phases of storytelling,” George Cheeks, president and CEO for the CBS Entertainment Group, said in a statement.

    “This sort of thing is handled at the state level and the Democrats always claim there is no election fraud at all. That is, of course, not true. Election fraud does occur. There is no evidence that it occurred in such a significant number that would have changed the presidential election,” McConnell said.

    1 The Sky Didn’t Fall The stock market didn’t crash upon Trump’s election. He didn’t ban Muslims. He didn’t put illegal immigrants on trains and send them back to Mexico. He didn’t start a nuclear war. In fact, a number of Trump’s policies and approaches largely worked as he promised. Some of those who didn’t support him in 2016 because they believed the dire forecasts have now come aboard the Trump train. 2 Trump Now Has a Track Record Unlike in 2016, Trump now has a performance record to judge him by. No longer the complete “wild card,” he did...

    Even though ABC spent part of their Sunday marveling at chants of “we love you” at massive Trump rallies, CBS Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan thought she was confronting Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel with accusations that President Trump’s supporters weren’t enthusiastic about him. Not only was Brennan schooled by McDaniel, CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell later warned of the “shy Trump voter” gaining courage. In the midst of her contentious interview with the RNC Chairwoman, Brennan recalled that McDaniel had invested a lot of funding into the Republican Party ground game all across the country. But, without...

    NBC "News" / Comcast ^ | October 26, 2020 | By Lynn Stuart Parramore, cultural historian
    The entitled male is hard to shut up. Recent displays of infuriating "manterrupting" illustrate how tough it can be to manage the problem. CBS News journalist Lesley Stahl, in her "60 Minutes" interview Sunday with President Donald Trump, was interrupted, talked over, instructed and lectured about how to speak. Despite - or perhaps because of - her unrattled persistence, Trump finally cut her off completely and walked out of the interview early. As every woman who has sat seething through a meeting knows, "manterrupting" is real. Social science studies suggest that men interrupt women 33 percent more than they interrupt...

    Cats, glass windows and vehicles: These pose the biggest threats to birds in the United States. But President Donald Trump is continuing to falsely claim that wind turbines are to blame for the deaths of the nation's birds. During Thursday night's final presidential debate between the president and former Vice President Joe Biden, Mr. Trump reiterated his stance against wind energy with a peculiar claim: It "kills all the birds." "I know more about wind than you do," Mr. Trump told Biden when moderator Kristen Welker turned to the topic of climate change. "It's extremely expensive. Kills all the birds....

    President Donald Trump released footage from the CBS 60 Minutes interview after White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Stahl was acting "more like an opinion journalist." "Look at the bias, hatred and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS," said the president on social media. "Tonight's anchor, Kristen Welker, is far worse! #MAGA" The video starts with Trump saying he's looking for "fairness" during the interview, as anchor Leslie Stahl preps the president by saying she was going to ask "tough questions." "You don't ask Biden tough questions," said the president. "It's terrible, you know that." Stahl...

    RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation "on Sunday and called out the Presidential Debate Commission for their election interference.  "I think voters are very frustrated by the corrupt debate commission, that they would cancel a second debate," McDaniel told host Margaret Brennan. "I think it feeds in to the belief that this 47 years that Joe Biden has had in DC is again protecting him from facing the voters. And Americans are frustrated that this election commission interfered with our ability to see these two candidates debate."Brennan then repeated Democratic talking points, noting the existence of...

    “Battlestar Galactica” actress and Nxivm devotee Nicki Clyne — the wife of former “Smallville” star Allison Mack — defended the upstate cult Tuesday, saying she wouldn’t trade her experiences in it “for anything.” “It’s very unfortunate the way that the word ‘Nxivm’ has been applied and is now synonymous with the term ‘sexual cult,’ which I don’t even know how to define what that is,” Clyne told CBS’ “This Morning” alongside four other Nxivm members. SNIP Federal prosecutors claimed in 2018 that Mack and Clyne were wed “at the behest of … Keith Raniere” but the two haven’t spoken for...

    White House reporters are used to getting attacked as "fake news" these days, but on Monday several were reportedly "attacked" in a whole new way: by an angry raccoon. In an incident that sparked viral jokes on Twitter, CBS's Paula Reid said a raccoon on the White House lawn had "attacked multiple news crews." "Strong Pawnee vibes at White House this morning as a raccoon attacked multiple news crews on North Lawn. allegedly grabbed pant leg of a photographer & then a corespondent [sic] before being fended off," she tweeted, referring to the fictional town of Pawnee, Ind. from the...

    Back in February of 2016, Amy Coney Barrett did an interview with CBS about filling Supreme Court vacancies.

    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) signaled he would support a Congressional investigation of senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump’s personal email use during a Tuesday evening interview with CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert. The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump sent hundreds of emails from a personal email address that she shared with her husband and senior White House advisor Jared Kushner. Peter Mirijanian, a spokesperson for Trump’s attorney Abbe Lowell, said the emails almost exclusively revolved around “logistics and scheduling concerning her family.”
