This is called reporting. Why are you apologizing for it? Mind-boggling to read this editorial from student journalists who attend one of the top schools for journalism in the country.

“An invasion of privacy”

Update: Haley says she alerted Trump to what Kelly and Tillerson were up to.

But Kelly was out **9 months after Tillerson** so Trump heard this and ... just kept him around?

If she really thought it was out of bounds, you'd think she would, right?

Sportsnet has cut ties with Hockey Night in Canada broadcaster Don Cherry. Sportsnet says in a statement it is the right time for Cherry to immediately step down. More to come.

Cherry had attacked immigrants for not wearing poppies

I am the oldest of 3 boys. Our dog was a boy. My dad played college football.
