CHICAGO — Wendy French of northwest suburban Lake in the Hills used to run 10 miles a day several times a week before she caught COVID-19 in September, which left her fatigued and suffering from a variety of symptoms for months after the virus was supposedly gone. The previously healthy 45-year-old stopped running and even began dreading typical household chores such as doing laundry, because it required standing up for so long that she grew tired. But after French got her first dose of the Pfizer vaccine in mid-April, she described feeling healthy for the first time in more than seven months....
Right-wing Twitter erupts after Fox reporter says on-air that she's handing over recordings to Project Veritas: 'About to crush the Murdochs'
This Monday, Fox26Houston reporter Ivory Hecker went off script during a live report and informed her bosses that she had been secretly recording them and plans to hand over the recordings to the right-wing media watchdog group Project Veritas.
Hecker was about to start her report on power outages throughout the region, but interrupted her report to say she had an announcement.
"Before we get to that story, I want to let you the viewers know that [Fox Corporation] has been muzzling me to keep certain information from you, the viewers — and from that I'm gathering, I'm not the only reporter being subjected to this — I'm going to be releasing some recordings about what goes on behind the scenes at Fox, because it applies to you, the viewers," she said.
"I found a non-profit journalism group called Project Veritas who's gonna help put that out tomorrow, so tune into them ," she added before going on to report on the heat wave story.

Marjorie Taylor Greene explodes at Merrick Garland for 'defining domestic terrorism as white supremacy'
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Tuesday lashed out at Attorney General Merrick Garland after he announced a plan to combat domestic terrorism.
Greene made the remarks while appearing on Real America's Voice with host Steve Bannon.
"I've been watching his comments," Greene said of Garland. "Here's the real concern. What is domestic terrorism? Define this. You know, here we have Antifa/BLM that terrorized -- terrorized! -- American citizens for the year. I mean, imagine this summer of rage this past summer."
"That is insurrection," she continued. "They were attacking federal buildings, police officers. They're trying to dismantle every bit of law enforcement in all of these cities and who are the victims? The American people. Is that not domestic terrorism?"
Greene added: "And yet, here [Garland] is on the screen, I've been watching his words, defining domestic terrorism as white supremacy, racism, people that went on January 6th."
According to the Georgia lawmaker, the Constitution guarantees "the right to dismantle a government when it becomes tyrannical."
"And so, let's ask the real question," she remarked. "What is domestic terrorism? Is it really what this Merrick Garland and the Democrats are telling us? It's the people that went to Washington on Jan. 6th because they really wanted accountability from their government and they knew what we all know and what I cannot wait to see come out, that there was real election fraud and they believe that it's stolen."
"Here's what the big lie is," Greene said. "It's this guy on the screen and the Democrats and those in charge saying that our patriots in the military, that our patriots in law enforcement and that our patriots of American citizens, calling them domestic terrorists when they refuse, they refuse to do anything about Antifa and BLM."
Greene also blasted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and suggested that the Democrats "have to take her out."
"These are the people that should be called domestic terrorists!" she exclaimed.
Bannon interrupted to clarify that Greene wants to "dismantle" the government through lawful means.
"We won on November 3rd," Bannon said, referring to the 2020 election. "We're going to prove that in courts and we're going to prove that in state legislatures."

MAGA-rioting Proud Boy now 'anxious to disavow' the group in bid to win pre-trial release: attorneys
A member of the Proud Boys who is facing multiple criminal charges related to the January 6th riots at the United States Capitol has now disavowed the group in an effort to win pre-trial release from custody.
Via NBC 4 Washington's Scott MacFarlane, attorneys representing Syracuse, New York-based Proud Boy Matthew Greene argued this week that their client should be released from jail ahead of his trial because he was not a member of the Proud Boys for very long and no longer considers himself a part of the group.
"The defendant has concluded that his personal beliefs and ethics do not align with those of the Proud Boys," the attorneys argue. "Mr. Greene... is anxious to publicly disavow his brief membership in the group."
Greene was indicted earlier this year and accused by prosecutors of being one of the first to breach the United States Capitol on January 6th.
He faces charges of obstruction of an official proceeding and aiding abetting, obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder and aiding and abetting, destruction of government property and aiding and abetting, entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly conduct in a restricted building or grounds, and disorderly conduct in a restricted building or grounds and aiding and abetting.
