Spencer Brown, managing editor for Townhall: NBC News admits to trailing Rittenhouse jury in police body cam footage.
So basically NBC News admitted they got caught 'near' the jury van without including the important note that NBC News staff had instructed an NBC freelancer to follow the jury. But because the freelancer was caught in the act, the full scope of NBC News' plan and what the network intended to do with information about jurors' movements remains unknown. That said, it's unlikely any identifying information would have been used to send them fruit baskets for a job well done or encourage the public to personally thank them for their verdict.
Landon Mion, Web Editor at Townhall. com: 'Meaningless': ABC producer who accused Chris Cuomo of sexual harassment responds to CNN anchor's suspension.
'There is more to accountability than a suspension,' [former ABC News producer Shelly Ross, who previously accused Chris Cuomo of sexually harassing her], told Fox News. 'Chris Cuomo has always maintained he was not an adviser, he was a brother. He lied to CNN and his viewers. He needs to publicly acknowledge his wrongdoing to women, to victims of sexual harassment, assault and gender bias, to his colleagues, to the other journalists he compromised or tried to, and to the viewers he misled.'
Betsy McCaughey, a former lieutenant governor of New York and author: Fauci puts us at risk.
To defend against omicron and future variants, the United States needs to improve its capacity to spot and track them with genomic sequencing, the technique used in Africa last week. America ranks 28th in the world in its tracking ability. Thank Fauci for that, too.
It will take time to determine how dangerous the new omicron variant is, but the proof is already in on Fauci. He's got to go.
Greg Gutfeld, host of Gutfeld! and co-host of The Five: I can't quit Chris Cuomo.
So, what am I getting at? The scuttlebutt in this high school cafeteria, called the media, is that Chris is what you find next to your ham and eggs at IHOP: toast. It's either toast, or a Lee press-on nail. But he's like the Greeks — ancient history. He's like peaches at the supermarket — canned. He's like a loaded gun on an Alec Baldwin set — discharged.
But why should he be fired? What did he do wrong? Besides help a corrupt politician smear an accuser by using his network connections.
