Greg Gutfeld at Fox News labels the media “irredeemably evil” when ABC News tweets about a “luxury car” that attacks a crowd of peaceful Black lives matter protestors. Never mind the race or motivations of the driver…you know, the actual facts of the story that didn’t neatly fit the narrative.

In the wake of George Floyd’s death, protestors find that where words fail, free expression comes as statues of Confederate leaders fall, and their old battle flag comes down.

Hillary Clinton won this Bronx District by 93.7% in 2016, but now city councilman Ruben Diaz seems poised to beat a divided field of a dozen Democrat contenders for the bluest House seat in the USA.

Recent polls show U.S. public opinion in support of Black Lives Matter surging in the wake of the death of George Floyd, and the nationwide protests it sparked.
