    If you happen to watch CNN, you'll know that the network has become a front for the Clinton Campaign and a bastion for spreading liberal nonsense. Now, a report by one of its own journalists has found that CNN has also taken bribes from foreign countries. The CNN reporter who blew the lid on this issue was none other than Amber Lyon, formerly employed by CNN and an "award winning reporter." Yesterday, Lyon “blew the cover” on the network’s suspicious business practices. Lyon claims that CNN "is paid by the U.S. government for reporting on some events, and not reporting...

    Virginia HaleDecember 13, 2016 Women are invisible in public spaces and are unwelcome in cafés and bars in France’s migrant-heavy suburbs, a shocking report broadcast on France 2 last week revealed. Reporting from Saint-Denis, a commune where 36 per cent of residents were born overseas, journalist Caroline Sinz narrates: “The café terraces and the streets have something in common: women seem to have been erased. In some neighborhoods, men occupy public places and women suffer.” Footage taken with a hidden camera captured how patrons react when women entered a café in the area. Two activists are shown walking into the...

      Reports: WaPo's Jason Rezaian convicted in Iran http://t.co/8H5bVnPY5K | AP Photo pic.twitter.com/D1MH9fICXI   — POLITICO (@politico) October 12, 2015 For people who might not have followed the story as it unfolded there’s an easier explanation for why Iran is holding Jason Rezaian.   The underpinning is Iran knowing the U.S. State Department and CNN collaborate to use media as a tool to advance U.S. foreign policy objectives. In December 2014 CNN ran and episode of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown filmed in Iran. It seemed innocuous at the time, yet as with all things Turner Broadcasting, it also seemed to be another set...

    Gay rights activists staging a mass "kiss-in" to protest homophobia faced off with Roman Catholic protesters late Tuesday outside Lyon cathedral in southeastern France. About 200 gay campaigners gathered outside the cathedral were heckled by dozens of counter protesters, including a group of skinheads wearing dark blue uniforms and gloves who gave a Nazi salute. Police and paramilitary gendarmes kept the two groups apart, as they shouted slogans at each other in a face off that lasted more than two hours. An hour into the demonstration, around 10 gay couples staged their "kiss-in" to applause from their supporters and heckling...

    A depot in France from which a large quantity of powerful explosive went missing was poorly guarded, the regional head of security has said. The storage of 28kg (61lb) of Semtex at the site near Lyon was "not usual and certainly not authorised", Xavier de Fuerst also told the AFP news agency. A search by anti-terrorist officers is under way, and the manager of the site has been suspended pending an inquiry. Semtex is favoured by terrorists as it is odourless and difficult to detect.

    Champions Lyon returned to winning ways with a comfortable 3-1 victory at local rivals St Etienne in a match marred by crowd trouble on Saturday.

    PARIS, Sept 7, 2006 (AFP) - A controversial imam with a conviction for supporting terrorism was deported by France to Algeria Thursday, the interior ministry said.

He was not imprisoned as he had already served the time in pre-trial detention. Two of Benchellali's sons, Menad and...

    Like the exploits of 21st-century special operators – including U.S. Navy SEALs, Army Delta soldiers, Force Recon Marines, Air Force commandos, and CIA paramilitary operatives – stories of men like Ortiz are rarely gleaned from books, newspapers, and magazines. Their incredibly dangerous work often goes unseen and is thankless.
