New York steps up security amid credible threat

Published

on

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Security has been heightened in New York City because of a credible but uncorroborated threat, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Thursday, but said city residents should go about their business as usual.

“The NYPD (police department) is deploying additional resources around the city and taking additional steps to keep our city safe, some of which you may notice and some of which you will not notice,” Bloomberg said at a news conference.

“But there’s no reason for any of the rest of us to change anything in our daily routine.”

Bloomberg said the threat has not been corroborated, but that it was credible and residents should be vigilant.

The White House said President Barack Obama was briefed on specific threat information earlier in the day, and noted that the government had already stepped up security ahead of the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks.

‘They share staff with the Kremlin’: Maddow roasts Trump’s new favorite right-wing network OANN

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow roasted One America News Network (OANN) for employing a Kremlin operative to report on United States politics.

"If the Fox News channel is insufficiently pro-Trump for you, you may or may not know there is another boutique little news outlet that is designed specifically for Trump megafans called One America, One America News Network," she explained.

"The Trump White House gave this boutique outfit a hard pass for access to the White House grounds and a permanent seat in the White House briefing room -- remember when the White House used to hold press briefings? They had a seat," she continued.
