  • LeBron James makes careless mistake in Lakers' critical loss to Phoenix Suns

    One play in the fourth quarter, however, seemed to sum up the Lakers’ struggles perfectly. James, after a Suns’ made basket, went to inbound the ball. As he tossed it, it hit the bottom of the backboard and sailed out of bounds again, handing Phoenix the ball right back. It was a careless turnover rarely seen at the NBA level.

    Legislate in haste, repent at leisure. Or was something worse afoot in Virginia than just run-of-the-mill lawmaker sloth? One co-sponsor of the now-failed bill that would have allowed already-born infants to die of neglect now says she simply “did not exercise due diligence” before supporting the bill. Dawn Adams, the Democrat from Richmond, wrote in a newsletter to constituents that “I made a mistake”: Del. Dawn Adams, D-Richmond, said she “did not exercise due diligence” before co-sponsoring the abortion legislation with Del. Kathy Tran, D-Fairfax. Tran became the focus of a social media firestorm this week after Republicans circulated...

    In the newest twist in the fake news fiasco that led to the Covington Catholic teens being doxxed and receiving death threats, the Native man at the center of the controversy, Nathan Phillips, is not a Vietnam veteran.

From The Washington Post: Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served...

    The hosts of "Fox & Friends" on Monday apologized for showing a graphic saying Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead, blaming a control room error. The graphic, similar to those marking the deaths of other famous figures, briefly showed a photo of Ginsburg and the dates "1933-2019." "We need to apologize ... A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of RBG with a date on it," co-host Steve Doocy said later in the program. "We don't want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident." "We apologize, big...

    ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis newscaster has apologized for what he called an unintentional racial slur while referencing Martin Luther King Jr., nearly two weeks after the same phrase cost another broadcaster his job. KTVI-TV's Kevin Steincross said during a Thursday morning broadcast that an upcoming tribute would honor "Martin Luther Coon Jr." Steincross apologized during a later broadcast, saying he has "total respect for Dr. King, what he meant and what he continues to mean to our country." KTVI says managers spoke with Steincross and believe the phrase was inadvertent and not reflective of his "core beliefs." Vice...

    You'd never know it from media coverage of the climate change issue, but over the past year, several "facts" about global warming have been debunked entirely or were radically altered. Almost all Democratic candidates who ran in the mid term elections tried to push climate change as a major issue. It didn't work, but time after time, Democrats repeated the same half truths and myths that have been used for years to push a radical gobal warming agenda.  The Global Warming Policy Forum, a London-based think tank, supports "open and skeptical" science and policy research, as well as a...

    It was a rough day for author and CNN legal analyst Areva Martin on Tuesday. Martin accused Sirius XM radio and Fox Nation host David Webb of “white privilege” during a segment on a radio program before he broke the news. “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” Webb said. The embarrassing moment occurred during a discussion about experience being more important than race when determining whether or not someone is qualified for a particular job. “I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that...

    In a crowded city at a busy bus stop, a woman who was waiting for a bus was wearing a tight leather skirt. As the bus stopped and it was her turn to get on, she became aware that her skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first step of the bus. Slightly embarrassed and with a quick smile to the bus driver, she reached behind her to unzip her skirt a little, thinking that this would give her enough slack to raise her leg. Again, she tried to make the...

    When you're the source for "breaking news" but it turns out to be "faking news," you're in trouble. ABC News "chief investigative correspondent" Brian Ross reported on retired Army Gen. Michael Flynn's plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller by claiming that Flynn is "prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate, Donald Trump, ordered him, directed him to make contact with the Russians which contradicts all that Donald Trump has said to this point." It was a nuclear explosion. Within minutes, the stock market plunged 350 points. It quickly became clear that was flat-out wrong. Later, ABC News...

    He wanted to emulate Flick who succumbs to a dare and sticks his tongue to a frozen pole in “A Christmas Story.”  When the character tries to pull away, he quickly discovers his tongue is stuck. Spencer Cline, of Sandwich, Illinois, and his friend Cole thought it was just movie magic, but they learned just how real that old pitfall is, the Aurora Beacon-News reports. “I was just tempted to,” he told the Beacon-News. “I’ve seen the movie ‘A Christmas Story,’ which kind of inspired me.” When Spencer stuck out his tongue last Tuesday, it instantly adhered to the pole.
