New research provides evidence that how people in the United States respond to the coronavirus pandemic is related to their partisan media preferences.The study, published in the journal BMJ Global Health, indicates that those who trust left-leaning CNN more than right-leaning Fox News have engaged in more preventive behaviors — such as social distancing and wearing a mask — compared to those who trust Fox News more than CNN.“We have been paying attention to the health messages that the media conveyed since the beginning of the pandemic. We know that the news media have important roles to play...

Seth Meyers details the work done to clean the White House post-Trump: 'Getting ketchup off the Constitution'
Thousands had to be spent to clean the White House after President Donald Trump and his family stayed in the residence for four years. While reports maintained that the fumigation was due to the coronavirus pandemic and a need to ensure sanitation, "Late Night" host Seth Meyers thinks something else was afoot.
"Scrubbing out Diet Coke rings, pulling loose hair out of the drain, trying to get ketchup off the Constitution," he said, detailing the work that had to be done. "I know they're saying that this is because of COVID but even without the pandemic if I were moving in after Trump anywhere I'd want the place fumigated. The guy was glued to his TV, barely left his bedroom, and only ate fast food. That place probably looks like a locker on 'Storage Wars.' Or a studio apartment in a rent-controlled building after the tenant, who lived there for 80 years dies. There's just piles of old newspapers, loose change and a collection of weird ceramic pigs."
He sat quietly as the brisk Washington breeze blew his wild, silver hair; his hands neatly folded over his lap clad in knitted mittens. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) made a fashion statement during the inauguration of his friend President Joe Biden Wednesday, but more he made a statement about America.
Jen Ellis, a teacher from Essex Junction, gave Sanders the mittens several years ago. They're made from repurposed wool sweaters and lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles. Sweaters that warmed the days of many through harsh Vermont winters and bottles that touched the lips of thousands of Americans warmed the hands of a United States Senator.
Elliott Broidy, a GOP fundraiser, pleaded guilty in a foreign lobbying scandal. GOP Maine donor Michael Liberty, was "convicted of making illegal campaign contributions — and who was once described as 'Donald Trump with a Maine accent.' Drew Brownstein, a hedge funder and son to a Colorado lobbyist. All of those added to the other political cronies like Steve Bannon, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Michael Flynn.
