President Trump refused, calling CNN “fake news.”The way the Q & A worked was very orderly. “We’re going to take four questions each,” Prime Minister May said at the beginning. She then selected the first journalist from the crowd to ask...

    Netflix sacked its chief spokesman Jonathan Friedland, he revealed on Friday, after he used the N-word twice in the space of a few days during meetings with staff. The head of communications announced his departure after being upbraided for a second time for using the racial slur, which is controversial for its ubiquity in hip-hop culture and completely taboo in almost every other context. "I'm leaving Netflix after seven years. Leaders have to be beyond reproach in the example we set and unfortunately I fell short of that standard when I was insensitive in speaking to my team about words...

According to the watchdog report, investigators had “profound concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel that we have uncovered...

    Embattled MSNBC host Joy Reid‘s woes show no sign of abating. As offensive blog posts continue to be unearthed, a new report which quotes Reid’s co-workers from her time as a radio host in Florida roughly a decade ago revealed the liberal pundit created a pretty hostile work environment.

One told Fox News she was an “evil woman” during that time. Reid’s co-host on the show spoke out to Fox...

    What happens when the national anthem isn't played before a ballgame? In Fresno, Calif., first the crowd boos, then it takes it upon themselves to sing it anyway -- a cappella. In a show of patriotism before Memorial Day, the crowd at a high school softball championship game at Fresno State's Margie Wright Diamond on Friday night launched into their own rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" after it was announced that the song wouldn't be played because it had already been played before an earlier game. “Honestly, I was shocked (when) the announcer stated, ‘There will be no anthem, let’s...
