Fox News reporter accuses two coworkers of sounding like ‘a white supremacist chat room’: leaked emails

Published

on

A reporter at Fox News issued a scathing rebuke to two of his colleagues for supposedly sounding “like a white supremacist chat room” in leaked emails obtained by The Daily Beast.

According to the publication, the Fox reporter chastised his colleagues for trying to defend President Donald Trump’s infamous statement that there were some “very fine people” who attended a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

In particular, the two Fox employees said that Trump was right to claim that not everyone at the march was a white supremacist because one of them, a marcher named Jarrod Kuhn, claimed he was only there to protest the removal of a monument dedicated to Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

However, The Daily Beast reports that Fox News Radio White House correspondent Jon Decker then stepped in to shoot down his colleagues’ false claims.

“I really don’t understand the point you are making,” he said. “Jarrod Kuhn was one of those individuals in Charlottesville holding a tiki torch while the mob chanted ‘Jews will not replace us.'”

Fox News assignment reporter Doug McKelway, one of the employees who defended Trump’s Charlottesville remarks, came back on the email thread and admitted that he was wrong after finding out that one of the people he cited as an example of a non-racist demonstrator was actually a white nationalist.

“[I]t appears Lambert revealed himself to be not the squeaky clean 1st amendment supporter he claimed to be on live TV,” the Fox reporter admitted.

“Based upon the slew of emails that I’ve received today, both of you should send an apology to your Fox News colleagues — many of whom are hurt and infuriated by your respective posts,” Decker replied. “Your posts read like something you’d read on a White Supremacist chat room.”

These three House members have access to all the secrets in Mueller’s report

Published

on

Only three members of the House of Representatives have access to both volumes of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia inquiry, according to Politico.

Reps. Val Demings (D-FL), Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and John Ratcliffe (R-TX) are the only three House members that sit on both the Intelligence and Judiciary committees -- and are thus the only three members that have special access to both volumes of Mueller's report.

“We started off wanting every member of Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, to be able to review the Mueller report and all supporting materials,” Demings told Politico.

Unemployment rises in eight Trump states — and it could cost him in 2020

Published

on

President Donald Trump is counting on the economy to remain strong throughout 2020 -- but it's already showing some signs of slowing in a couple of key states.

CNBC reports that unemployment in eight different states that Trump won in 2016 has actually risen year-over-year, and it's eroded his popularity.

Although Trump is still very popular in some of these states, including Mississippi and South Carolina, the latest Morning Consult poll cited by CNBC shows that the president actually has a negative net approval rating in the states of North Carolina and Arizona, which are two states that he will need to hold if he wants to win in 2020.

The Moon landings have a Nazi problem

Published

on

Somewhere in the scarier reaches of the internet, a conspiracy theory circulates that the Nazis landed on the moon in 1942. Maybe you’ve never heard that 27 years before Apollo 11, Hitler had a successful space program that bored into the lunar surface to create a moon base.

It doesn’t need saying that this idea is wrong – it’s beyond absurd. Part of what’s troubling with this mythis that people would treat the history of the Third Reich with anything other than sober realism. It feels dangerous.

But the Nazi moon theory is unnerving in another sense. It’s a distortion of an historical reality that is itself profoundly uncomfortable: Nazi technology and personnel were indeed central to the moon landing.
