    Kyler Murray won one of college football’s highest honors on Saturday as he was awarded the Heisman Trophy for his excellence as quarterback for Oklahoma, but USA Today wasn’t focused on his football accomplishments. In a report published late Saturday night, USA Today dug up several tweets and claimed that Murray had made homophobic statements on Twitter. According to the report, Murray called one of his friends a “queer” in 2012. He was 15 years old at the time of the tweet. In response to this hit from USA Today, Murray humbly apologized for the comments he had made when...

    Following the two court filings on President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen and his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, the White House has dismissed the case as the President declared himself "totally" clear. The sentencing memo registered by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York regarding the investigation and probe into the personal business dealings of Cohen didn't include fresh or valuable information, according to Sarah Sanders, White House Press Secretary.

    Journalist Meghan Murphy said in an interview that aired Thursday on "Rising" that Twitter's practice of banning users for remarks it deems offensive is a dangerous precedent after she was banned from the platform last month. "I don't want to draw a line that ends up silencing people who have political ideas, or who are talking about ideologies, or who are challenging popular discourse that has been deemed offensive," Murphy, founder and editor of the website Feminist Current, told Hill.TV's Krystal Ball on Wednesday. "Now we're banned, we're silenced, and I actually think it's quite dangerous," she continued. "This is...

    Actress, former View host, and long-time hater of President Donald Trump Rosie O'Donnell declared Wednesday that Trump should "rot in jail." [Snip] During an October appearance on MSNBC, O’Donnell called Trump “evil” and admitted that she got “physically sick” on election night in 2016. "I actually got physically sick that night. I thought to myself, this cannot be happening," she said. "When he got the nomination, I thought I just have to wait until election day. And then he won. It took a good year to compose myself in public again. I took a year out of the spotlight." The...

    Conservatives on Twitter lashed out following the swift cancellation of Roseanne Barr's hit ABC program after here racist tweet, citing a double-standard in entertainment for those who are conservative or support President Trump. The right-leaning critics took particular aim at ESPN’s decision to hire Keith Olbermann and MSNBC’s continued employment of Joy Reid. Both have made provocative comments in the past. ABC canceled Barr’s show after she wrote a tweet that referred to former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett as a product of the “The Planet of the Apes” and “the Muslim Brotherhood.” Olbermann was recently hired by ESPN for...

    MSNBC host Joy Reid is catching major heat from Jane Sanders, wife of Bernie Sanders. During a typical rant on Twitter, Reid accused Sanders of mistreating his wife. @SenSanders Bernie Sanders.— Jeffrey Cawthorne (@zo7vette) November 29, 2017 Um... I get that he has a hardcore following, but his own attitudes toward women, from his weird early writings to his physical dismissal of women in his presence (including his own wife) make that an incredibly dubious prospect.— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) November 29, 2017 Her comments did not go unnoticed.  I didn't answer your biased reporting about Bernie during the last 2...

    After MSNBC counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance confronted Breitbart editor Alex Marlow on Friday's Real Time show, demanding that he retract an article from last April which accurately highlighted Nance "nominating" a Donald Trump property for a terrorist attack, actor Mark Hamill was so impressed with the liberal MSNBC analyst that the Star Wars icon praised him on Twitter and dubbed him a "Jedi master." After MSNBC's Joy Reid highlighted Hamill's tweet on her AM Joy show on Sunday, Hamill also threw some Twitter praise toward the far-left MSNBC host. At 11:46 a.m. ET on Sunday's AM Joy, host Reid excitedly...

    <p>BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- U.S. President Donald Trump says he will shortly be providing formal notice to Congress that he will terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement, giving lawmakers six months to approve the replacement he recently signed. Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One while returning to Washington from Argentina, Trump says: “I will be formally terminating NAFTA shortly.” Seeking to gain leverage with skeptical lawmakers to approve the revised trade pact, Trump says Congress “will have a choice” as it considers the agreement he signed with the leaders of Mexico and Canada on Friday during the Group of 20 summit. He says they can choose between the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement or “pre-NAFTA, which works very well.” Trump has made renegotiating NAFTA a centerpiece of his presidency.</p>

    I may be signing my own Twitter death warrant with this opinion piece but so be it if I dare to criticize and accuse the man who has more power to influence American political thought than Vladimir Putin ever could dream of having. That man is Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. By silencing conservative thought he can control much of America’s political dialogue, with his minions deliberately steering it in a leftist direction reflecting their inner beliefs, while blaming it on inanimate software. Pushed to the wall, they bleat that the algorithm made them do it. As this Congress winds down,...

    Conservatives are increasingly vowing to quit Twitter for what they say is censorship of prominent voices. The problem with conservatives or any like-minded group quitting a social media platform and all joining a new one is simple: Echo chambers are absolutely no fun. Ever hear of the saying, "... to own the libs?" How about, "... to own the cons." These are prominent sayings on Twitter, and embody much of what the platform is about: embarrassing, or beating or berating the other side. Invariably it's a combination of the three. So if conservatives left Twitter to go somewhere else, would...
