OAKLAND, Calif. — A 54-year-old man was arrested Thursday for allegedly assaulting Gov. Gavin Newsom in downtown Oakland, authorities said. Newsom was in town to promote support for small businesses. Before stopping at Beastmode Barbershop and Graffiti Pizza, the governor came across the 54-year-old while walking on Washington Street in Old Oakland. “This morning, the Governor was approached by an aggressive individual. Members of the Governor’s security detail removed the Governor from the situation and the individual was arrested by CHP officers,” the CHP, which provides security for the gov...
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell lashed out at Fox News on Thursday after the network reportedly declined to run ads for his upcoming cyber symposium pushing Donald Trump's "Big Lie" of election fraud.
In response, Lindell reportedly pulled MyPillow ads from the network.
"MyPillow is among Fox News's major advertisers, alongside supplement company Balance of Nature and weight-loss products provider Nutrisystem, according to advertising analytics firm iSpot.tv," The Wall Street Journal reported. "MyPillow spent almost $50 million on Fox News last year and so far this year has shelled out about $19 million for ad time on the network, Mr. Lindell said.""Maybe, Fox News doesn't want the competition from FrankSpeech.com," Lindell told the newspaper.
"And Lindell TV," a Lindell TV anchor said.
"And Lindell TV. I never thought of that, maybe that's their whole reasoning behind this," Lindell said. "You know, they're afraid that everybody's leaving Fox and not watching Fox anymore, they're watching Fox and other channels like the great OAN."
He then spoke directly to network bosses.
"I'm telling you, you Fox executives, you made a terrible, terrible decision today," he said, pointing at the camera. "I hope it goes down in history as one of your worst [mistakes] you've ever made."
"Shame on you Fox," Lindell added.

'I'm embarrassed for Colorado': Hospital CEO in Lauren Boebert's district trashes her COVID response
In an interview aired on Thursday, CNN's Gary Tuchman spoke to Andy Daniels, the CEO of Memorial Regional Health in western Colorado and a self-described "super-conservative," about the attacks on science and public health by his congresswoman, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) — and Daniels had a few scathing things to say about her.
"How does it make you feel, the way Representative Boebert has treated this pandemic?" asked Tuchman. "The masks? The vaccine?"
"I am embarrassed for Colorado, quite frankly," said Daniels. "I am embarrassed that she is my representative."
"So, you are the CEO of an important hospital in her district, and you are willing to go out on a limb and say that?" asked Tuchman.
"I am," confirmed Daniels. "I think if you are going to take a stance in healthcare policy, you might actually want to learn something about healthcare policy."
Boebert has attacked President Joe Biden's proposal to send door-to-door volunteers to encourage vaccination, demanding the government not come to her door with the "Fauci Ouchie," and caused a stir this week for throwing a face mask at a congressional staffer who offered it to her on the floor.

Donald Trump is lashing out at Capitol Police officers who survived the January 6th insurrection, according to a new report in The Daily Beast.
"In his retelling, Ashli Babbitt—who was shot and killed trying to enter the House chamber on Jan. 6—wasn't so much a rioter as she was an 'innocent, wonderful, incredible woman.' And, in Trump's mind, some of the police officers who defended the Capitol that day aren't the real heroes, calling them liberal 'p*ssies' who loathe MAGA, and outliers within a broadly pro-Trump law enforcement community," The Beast reported.
The report was based on two sources who spoke with reporters Asawin Suebsaeng and Sam Brodey under the condition of anonymity,
"Trump has also maintained that these men seem 'broke[n]' by the events of Jan. 6, and that they do not have the supposed toughness or character of the law enforcement officers who, on the whole nationally, still widely support Trump and his policies," The Beast reported. "According to these two people, and another source with knowledge of the matter, the twice-impeached former president has also alleged that these particular police officers are letting themselves be used as pawns by anti-Trump Democrats, like Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), or simply despise Trump and are Democrats themselves."
D.C. Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone, who testified on Tuesday before the House select committee to investigate the insurrection, has said publicly that he voted for Trump in 2016.
