    The museum says the diorama has disturbed some people because of the violence depicted, and they've learned the 1860s-era taxidermy was performed with real human bones. PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh museum decided a dramatic diorama that has been on display for more than a century should remain out of public view while it considers ethical issues about its accuracy and appropriateness. The Carnegie Museum of Natural History has covered up the popular “Lion Attacking a Dromedary” diorama, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Thursday. “For some people of color, their traumatic experience with racialized violence leads them to see ("Lion Attacking...

    Corey Barsky was more than a little miffed Tuesday night when he saw a giant Biden-Harris logo projected on the façade of the towering Cathedral of Learning on the University of Pittsburgh’s Oakland campus. Barsky, who is vice chair of the Pitt College Republicans, said the projection that included the United Steelworkers logo and a line urging viewers to “Plan to Vote” was visible for nearly two hours. He said the display seemed out of line with policies the university invoked this month when it denied his group’s request to plant small American flags around the Cathedral lawn to mark...

    The NFL has decided to utilize its spectator sport to proselytize its paying customers to their employees' social opinion. Unfortunately, many customers disagree with being considered racists and the denigration of their country. The athletes of the NFL can generally run fast and lift heavy things, and play a game for pay, but they are clearly not marketing geniuses. For my hometown team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, in their opening game, they decided to honor Antwon Rose as their hometown cause. For those unfamiliar with Mr. Rose, in the summer of 2018, he engaged in a drive-by shooting, fled from the...

    Three people are now facing criminal charges for harassing diners at a restaurant in Pittsburgh during a Black Lives Matter protest over Labor Day weekend. Misdemeanor charges were filed against Monique Craft, 35, Kenneth McDowell, 33, and Shawn Green, 24, on Monday. It's unclear whether they've been taken into custody. A viral video showed the trio and other protesters screaming 'f*** the white people' and yelling other obscenities at diners outside the Sienna Mercato restaurant on Penn Avenue on September 5. Craft was dubbed the 'beer bandit' after she was seen swiping a drink from an elderly white couple and...

    I was going to write about the new Reese’s peanut butter cup with potato chips in the filling but I suppose this is the more newsworthy breakthrough of the two.This isn’t as good as a vaccine but if it pans out it’d be the next best thing. It’s an antibody treatment — or, more specifically, a treatment involving an antibody component. Scientists at the University of Pittsburgh realized that you don’t need whole entire intact antibodies to fight off COVID; what you need is something that’ll bind to the virus’s “spike” protein, thereby blocking it from attaching itself to...

    Terrible Towels aside, the tensions in one of America’s most livable cities reveals turmoil that has nothing to do with Trump or the typical talking points If one would listen to many of the experts and much of the self-praise centered around “the Paris of Appalachia”, it would be self-evident why Pittsburgh is often called “America’s Most Livable City” – a moniker that gets bounced around in southwestern Pennsylvania. Over the course of the past 30 years, Pittsburgh has taken pride in the city’s #2 ranking nationally as recently as 2018 as well as its #1 “most livable” status in 2014,...

    CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: “I am not banning fracking.” VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. Biden has promised to ban fracking — repeatedly — as has his running mate. Biden said Monday — during a speech supposedly on violence: “I am not banning fracking. Let me say again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me.”

    Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden just contradicted himself by claiming he was “not banning fracking.” Liberal outlet The Hill not only defended it but accused President Donald Trump of falsely stating Biden’s position. Biden pretended Monday in Pennsylvania: “I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me.” The Hill parroted this, and crazily said that “Throughout the Republican National Convention last week, speakers attacked Biden’s climate and energy plan, offering a number of misleading comments.” At the bottom of the piece, The Hill said...

    PITTSBURGH (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said on Monday he would not ban hydraulic fracturing, a controversial method of drilling for crude oil and natural gas, if elected and called Republican assertions that he supports such a ban a lie. The comment added a level of nuance to Biden’s energy platform, which includes an ambitious timeline for transitioning the U.S. economy away from fossil fuels and an end to new oil and gas drilling leasing on federal lands to fight climate change. “I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again. I am not banning fracking, no...

    A week ago, Joe Biden notoriously flip-flopped on his long-held anti-fracking position while campaigning in Pennsylvania, where fracking is a major industry. “I am not banning fracking. Let me say that again: I am not banning fracking. No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me,” he said. Unfortunately for him, there was ample evidence that he’s promised to end fracking if elected president. Now that polls have tightened, and Trump and Biden are now tied in the state of Pennsylvania (a crucial swing state) Kamala Harris, who also campaigned on banning fracking, has also now flip-flopped on the...

    Joe Biden has made it clear that he was for fracking before he was against it. Forget the cognitive testing – the cognitive dissidence of the incoherent policies his puppet masters are feeding him through his earpiece is enough to disqualify him for the presidency and may doom him politically in key states like Pennsylvania just as Hillary Clinton’s pledge to bankrupt a lot of coal companies did. Banning fossil fuels and killing the energy independence Trump achieved before the Wuhan virus pandemic would kill the American economy and future hopes for recovery. It is said a little child shall...

    Alternate headline: Candidate checks electoral map, discovers why Pennsylvania’s called the Keystone State. At least Kamala Harris didn’t try to pretend that this was her position all along, as Joe Biden has for the last few weeks, but that doesn’t make this flip-flop much less crass. CNN’s Dana Bash sets this up as comfortably as possible for Harris, who now calls a fracking ban a “false choice” — even though Harris demanded one while campaigning last year: BASH: President Trump, Vice President Pence, they have been campaigning more and more on the issue of fracking, which is a process...

Entercom is the parent company of radio station KDKA which aired Bell’s show. “We take very seriously our responsibility to provide a platform for our communities to engage in diverse and meaningful dialogue, debate and the right to freedom of speech, we do...
