The official 2014 World Cup game ball should make players happy, NASA said after its own aerodynamics testing showed the new design avoided the pitfalls of the unpopular 2010 version. Players complained the official Jabulani ball from four years ago…
Fox News' Lara Logan on Monday likened Dr. Anthony Fauci to one of the most notorious Nazi war criminals ever.
While appearing on Fox, Logan criticized Fauci's comments that Republicans are attacking him because he is the most visible representative of the American scientific community.
"This is what people say to me: He doesn't represent science," Logan charged. "He represents Josef Mengele, Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the second World War in the concentration camps. And I am talking about people all across the world are saying this!"
In reality, Fauci is one of the world's most respected experts on infectious diseases and has never conducted inhumane medical experiments on Jewish children as Mengele did.
Logan went on to claim that Fauci is responsible for the lockdown policies that have been implemented across the world in response to COVID-19, while neglecting to point out that Fauci cannot force any country to undergo lockdowns to slow the spread of a disease that has killed millions of people.

'This is not going well for Bannon': MSNBC legal analyst says Trump ally on track for stinging defeat
Former Solicitor General Neal Katyal explained that Trump ally Steve Bannon is going to be highly unsuccessful in his efforts to beat criminal contempt charges.
In a Sunday filing by the Justice Department, prosecutors said Bannon's attorney, Evan Corcoran, refused their attempts to negotiate on some kind of agreement. According to the 10-page filing, the prosecutors alleged Bannon's lawyers were using their filing as a press release instead of a legal filing.
"The prosecutors called Steve Bannon's filing frivolous, so Bannon claimed that he wanted to make certain documents public and the Justice Department wasn't letting him," said Katyal. "And the Justice Department's response today was to call it frivolous and basically say, 'Oh, no, you didn't!' They point out that Bannon never even asked the Justice Department to try and make these documents public, and so this dispute is not going to go well for Bannon. Judges don't like it when parties can't work out stuff among themselves... and that's particularly true here, given Bannon's specific claim."
At its heart, Katyal said that Bannon is complaining that he can't publicly discuss certain documents.
"I have a very easy suggestion for him if he's worried about that: Testify," he continued. "This guy is afraid to go and tell the truth about what happened under oath, and that's what all of these legal skirmishes are about. That's the part that's frivolous. So, I think he's going to lose these claims and it's going to embolden the House investigators."

Right-wing radio network shrugs after Mike Lindell pulls his ads in latest election conspiracy tantrum
On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that Salem Radio Network, a company that hosts a number of right-wing and Christian talk radio hosts, is unfazed by MyPillow CEO and pro-Trump conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell's decision to cut them off from his advertising.
"After deciding to pull the plug on the ads Saturday night, Lindell, throughout his 96-hour Thanksgiving virtual event, repeatedly stated that Salem radio hosts had attempted to reach out to heal the business partnership," reported Zachary Petrizzo. "Sought for comment about the matter, Salem spokesperson Phil Boyce told The Daily Beast that he wasn't concerned about MyPillow no longer serving as an advertiser. 'No, we're not upset. He has the right if he wants to do that,' Boyce said, adding that he wasn't aware of any radio hosts attempting to contact the pillow tycoon to convince him to reverse his decision."
"Asked if Salem hopes Lindell reconsiders the decision, Boyce told The Daily Beast 'no,'" continued the report.
Lindell claimed in his "thanks-a-thon" that Salem had not done enough to tell people about why he was being "canceled," concluding, "With Salem, nobody gets to sell MyPillow products going forward. You are done selling MyPillow products!"
For his part, Lindell ended the "thanks-a-thon" in failure, without gaining the support he was hoping for on his "petition" to force the Supreme Court to "reinstate" Donald Trump as president. He had previously claimed the petition, which was lacking basic elements required of litigation, would be delivered by Thanksgiving.
