On Wednesday, CNN host Brooke Baldwin opened up a segment on her show in silence. For over one minute Baldwin sat in silence as a screen behind her displayed images of school shootings.
“Those voices, those images are from Highlands Ranch, Colorado, where authorities are investigating a school shooting,” Baldwin said after breaking her silence.
“One student was killed, eight others were injured. And it happened at the STEM school in Highlands Ranch. It is a public charter school. It is in a suburb. It is seven miles from Columbine high school,” she said.
So far in 2019, there have been “15 school shootings in the US in which someone was hurt or killed,” reported CNN. However, there have been doubled the shootings in the school year altogether.
“Again, what happened in Colorado marks the 35th school shooting in this country in this school year alone,” Baldwin said.

Trump goes after Fox News’ Chris Wallace after Shep Smith departure

Friday, longtime Fox newsman Shep Smith was officially released from his contract, at his request and fellow Fox staffers are warning it's only the beginning.

Robert Reich walks through all the ways Trump is selling America to foreign powers for his own personal profit
Notorious class warrior Robert Reich wrote a sharp attack of President Donald Trump for his international policies that are doing nothing more than scoring him personal cash and power.
Writing for The Guardian, Reich called Trump "the most xenophobic and isolationist American president in modern history," saying that the president has been "selling America to foreign powers for his own personal benefit."
While Trump promised during the 2016 election that he would "bring troops home," it was likely assumed that Trump meant the decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The work on the ground in Syria was mostly being done by Kurdish allies and not American soldiers. The number of troops on the ground in Syria, prior to Turkey beginning their bombing campaign, was relatively low.
