‘The truth is recorded’: Fox News’ Shepard Smith blasts pattern of White House trying to change Trump’s comments

Published

on

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith aggressively challenged the “pattern” of the White House chaos, where President Donald Trump says one thing and then his staff attempt to change the record.

Following the end of press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ Wednesday press briefing, Smith described it as the administration, “backing up and trying again.”

“Today, when asked whether Russia is still targeting the United States, the president said no. Just now the press secretary said something else,” he continued.

“He wasn’t asked if he would answer questions, he was asked specifically if Russia is still targeting the United States and he said no,” Smith fact-checked. “The truth is recorded.”

Fox News on-screen graphic ‘Shepard Smith Reporting’ used to debunk claims by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

“Why he says one thing and then his White House attempts to change it, we don’t know,” he added.

“The reporter who asked the question and witnesses said there was no doubt he was answering the question,” Smith reported. “This goes directly against what his top intelligence official said repeatedly last week.”

“This is part of a pattern,” he concluded. “One thing is said at the White House and changed in another setting.”

“Again, part of a pattern. Say one thing, change it later. Sort of,” Smith observed.

UK travel giant Thomas Cook set to collapse: report

Published

on

Thomas Cook's 178-year existence was reported to be coming to an end on Monday after the British travel firm struggled to find private investment to keep it afloat, potentially affecting thousands of holidaymakers.

The operator has said it needs £200 million ($250 million) or else it will face administration, which could affect 600,000 holidaymakers and require Britain's largest peacetime repatriation.

A source close to the negotiations told AFP that the company had failed to find the cash from private investors and would collapse unless the government intervened.

But ministers are unlikely to step in due to worries about the pioneering operator's longer-term viability, the Times reported, leaving it on the brink.

‘We are the people’: Watch Billy Porter get a standing ovation for his passionate speech at the Emmys

Published

on

In a powerful and passionate speech accepting his Emmy, "Pose" actor Billy Porter showered the audience with love and proudly reminded all of their right to belong and be loved.

"Oh, my God. God bless you all! The category is love, y'all, love!" Porter exclaimed.

The epic FX show "Pose" depicts Black and Latinos in the LGBTQ ballroom culture of New York City in the 1980s in the first season and the early 1990s in the second season.

"I am so overwhelmed and so overjoyed to have lived long enough to see this day," he said. "James Baldwin wrote, 'It took many years of vomiting up the filth I was taught about myself and half-believed, before I was able to walk on the earth as though I had a right to be here.' I have the right. You have the right. We all have the right."

on

A blockbuster Tutankhamun show set a new all-time French record Sunday, with 1.42 million visitors flocking to see the exhibition in Paris, the organisers said.

The turnout beat the previous record set by another Tutankhamun show billed as the "exhibition of the century" in 1967, when 1.24 million queued to see "Tutankhamun and His Times" at the Petit Palais.

"Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh" -- which has been described as a "once in a generation" show -- will open in London in November.

The last time a show of comparable size about the boy king opened there in 1972 it sparked "Tutmania", with 1.6 million people thronging the British Museum.
