    When we checked in with Newsweek last week, the magazine had just published a news article critical of the magazine’s owners. That article only saw the light of day after a number of reporters and editors threatened to quit if it were spiked. It came after two top editors were fired and a raid based on an investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney. Today, the Daily Beast reports the struggling magazine is unable to pay its rent and may face eviction. Guardian Life Insurance, the sub-landlord for the company’s downtown Manhattan office, informed International Business Times Inc. in late November...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Activists protesting police brutality chained themselves along a light-rail line carrying ticketholders to the Super Bowl on Sunday, halting trains in both directions. Metro Transits Green Line was shut down a little after 2 p.m., about three hours before kickoff, by a group of about 30 activists at the Stadium Village station. Transit spokesman Howie Padilla said the agency had a contingency plan to get ticketholders to the game on time. Chinyere Tutashinda, a spokeswoman for the activists, said they were also protesting authorities decision to dedicate the citys two light-rail lines to Super Bowl ticketholders on...

    Can the simple act of eating a sandwich really be bad for the environment? New research by British scientists suggests a shocking response: Depends on the sandwich. Researchers at the University of Manchester Thursday announced the results of what they claim to be "the first ever study looking at the carbon footprint of sandwiches, both home-made and pre-packaged." Perhaps not surprisingly, the results are bad news for meat-eaters. The study found that sandwiches containing pork meat (that's bacon, ham and sausage), cheese and prawns contained the highest carbon footprints. The worst of the lot, the so-called "all-day breakfast" sandwich containing...

    Olivia Munn may be a celebrity in her own right, but that doesnt mean she doesnt get starstruck. The 37-year-old Newsroom actress walked the red carpet at the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday, gushing to E! News during their pre-show about the time she met Oprah Winfrey. It all went down in the bathroom at the Soho House. She was coming out of the stall, Munn recalled of the 63-year-old talk show host. At the Soho House, theres a window and not mirrors. And I see her in the reflection so Im washing my hands not saying anything.

    The Sunday after Thanksgiving often coincides with what Catholics know as the First Sunday in Advent. This year things are different because Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday and will double as the Fourth Sunday in Advent. Going back to its religious roots, Advent is a time of waiting for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus Christ, and for most Germans that first Sunday is the official kick off to the holiday season. It is common for families to have a beautifully decorated tabletop wreath with four candles in their homes, and one additional candle being lit every Sunday...

It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience these are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday, the network said in a statement on Saturday. Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay. Ross came under considerable fire on Friday after he erroneously reported on live television that then-candidate Donald Trump had instructed Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians.

    This week, families across our state are unboxing their Thanksgiving dcor, choosing table cloths, and deciding who is going to be responsible for what dish this coming Thursday.

The lives of hundreds of families across our states are at risk thanks to Donald Trumps draconian immigration policies. Many of your immigrant friends and...

    Fox News host Jeanine Pirro was pulled over for speeding in upstate New York after she was clocked going 119 mph in a 65 mph zone. The New York Daily News reported Pirro was stopped by a state trooper in Tioga County around 1:15 p.m. Sunday. Pirro, the host of "Justice With Judge Jeanine," said she was on her way to visit her ailing mother but vowed to "pay the consequences." I had been driving for hours to visit my ailing 89-year-old mom and didnt realize how fast I was driving. I believe in the rule of law and I...

    After a week of non-stop media hits and allegations be several women of inappropriate conduct 38 years ago Republican Judge Roy Moore is now down by 8 points in the latest FOX News poll. Despite the allegations it is still stunning that Alabama Republicans would vote for a committed anti-American Socialist to represent them in the US Senate. Judge Moore has a lot of work to do between now and the election on December 12th. The Gloria Allred tactics of personal destruction appear to be working for Democrats.

    Yeah, Sessions is part of the Swamp. Really meanie-old FReepers, really? One of the greatest statesmen in modern American political history. Accomplished AG in both Alabama and now in the DoJ. Senator. And has been the point man on immigration, rule of law, and sovereignty, is suddenly a Swamp mole designed to destroy Trump? So, Sessions should give press conferences every five minutes on what he's doing? Provide leaks to the very same Swamp and Fake News Media that's trying to destroy his boss? Excuse me, he's not the DOJ solely by himself. Um, he has staff. Underlings. Associates. You...

    Jared Kushner, President Trumps senior adviser and son-in-law, is registered to vote in New York State as a woman, state records show. The New Jersey native first registered to vote in the Empire State in November 2009 as a female, records first discovered by the liberal-leaning American Bridge group. It wasnt immediately clear what happened that Kushner was registered as a woman, and was an active voter as of this November. The 36-year-old real estate developer has been tasked with reforming the government and moderating a peace plan in the Middle East. Kushner can't even fill out the most basic...

    Presidential son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is registered as a female voter in New York, according to public records. Registration records show that when Kushner, who is married to first daughter Ivanka Ivanka, registered to vote in 2009, he apparently checked a box classifying his gender as a female. Democratic opposition research group American Bridge first spotted the error, which Wired then reported first. "Kushner can't even fill out the most basic paperwork without screwing it up, so it's a mystery why anyone thinks he's somehow going to bring peace to the Middle East," Brad Bainum, a spokesperson for...

She responded, You dont know what you are talking about. The crowd continued chanting, You are a liar.

    Hillary Clinton was sure that she was going to win the 2016 presidential election, saying she didnt realize it wasnt going her way until election night, she told The View this morning. The former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate said she thought that the race was going to be a close, hard-fought campaign but that she would come out on top. Asked if she cried the night of the election, Clinton said no. No, we didnt cry that night, she said, referring to her husband, former President Bill Clinton. Hillary Clinton explained her reaction stemmed from a need...

    The Congressional Black Caucus will hold a meeting next week to discuss whether to call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Following Trumps response to deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month, the CBC chairman, Representative Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, said the 49-member caucus would have a discussion on Trumps possible impeachment when Congress reconvened after the August recess. Those talks will take place next Wednesday, a CBC staffer confirmed to Newsweek on Thursday. While it was initially anticipated that the discussions would happen at this weeks meeting, relief efforts following Hurricane Harvey and...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi appeared confused in an interview this week about what kind of speech is protected by the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution does not say that a person can shoutyell wolf in a crowded theater. If you are endangering people, then you dont have a constitutional right to do that, Pelosi said in an interview on Wednesday with San Francisco TV station KRON. The Democrat seemingly meant to paraphrase an opinion written by Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. in the landmark free speech case, Schenck v. United States (1919). The most stringent protection of free...
