    CNN's president Jeff Zucker has told staff at the network that they will continue investigating fired anchor Chris Cuomo's behavior after a woman at another network accused him of historic sexual misconduct - and the 51-year-old quit his radio show. Cuomo was fired on Saturday after it emerged that he had provided more substantial help to the team working for his embattled brother, Governor Andrew Cuomo, than he had previously admitted. Andrew, 63, resigned as governor of New York in August. CNN on Saturday said that Cuomo was being fired due to his undisclosed actions in support of his brother, in breach of journalistic ethics. They also said that 'additional information' contributed to the decision - which is now known to be allegations of sexual misconduct made last week by a former colleague of Cuomo's when he worked at ABC News, from 2006-13. Zucker on Monday told staff the allegations of sexual misconduct would be thoroughly investigated.  'Chris had been much more deeply involved than we had ever known, and than he'd ever told us,' Zucker told employees, according to...
    The Brooklyn man who attacked WWE star Seth Rollins at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Monday night had been planning the ambush since 2019 because he was scammed out of hundreds of dollars by an imposter pretending to be the wrestling star. Elisah Spencer, 24, released a bizarre video on social media Tuesday in which he identified himself as the fan who jumped over a guard rail at Monday Night Raw and tackled Rollins to the ground. It all happened in full view of television cameras that were broadcasting live but then rapidly pulled away from the scene.  An internet sleuth, Steven Zoto, discovered Spencer’s Instagram account. He also found screenshots of messages that were sent two years ago between Spencer and a fake account pretending to be Rollins. Spencer apparently blames Rollins for cheating him out of hundreds of dollars so that he could buy WWE tickets. When Spencer's girlfriend - or 'bae' - tried to pay for it with a bad check, she was arrested, according to Zoto.  Scroll down for video  Rollins (seen without his shirt...
    Jerry Jones is paying Amari Cooper $20 million this season and the boisterous Dallas Cowboys owner appears frustrated by the unvaccinated wide receiver getting sidelined with Covid. Cooper was placed on the reserve/Covid-19 list last Friday, just before the Cowboys began a pivotal stretch of playing three games in 12 days. Because Cooper is unvaccinated, he is required to quarantine for 10-days, meaning he automatically missed the Cowboys loss to Kansas City and will also be ineligible for their upcoming Thanksgiving game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Jones joined Shan Shariff and RJ Choppy on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas for his weekly radio interview and was clearly frustrated by Cooper’s absence. “First of all, he wouldn’t have been testing had he been vaccinated,” Jones said on The Fan. “So, he didn’t have symptoms. So, he wouldn’t have been tested. So, there’s a very likelihood that he might have played had he been vaccinated.” “It is very punitive to get the COVID, to be trite, it’s very punitive to get the COVID if you’re not vaccinated in...

Williams was interested in a few "Harry Potter" roles but the producers only cast British actors. Columbus and J.K. Rowling agreed that they wanted the "cast to be 100% British."

    Former Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman blamed the deaths of over 600,000 Americans from the coronavirus on Donald Trump and Senate Republicans who refused to impeach the former president over the Ukraine scandal. Vindman appeared to Morning Joe on Tuesday to promote his new memoir Here, Right Matters. During the conversation, Vindman reflected on the stonewalling he faced over the Ukraine scandal before he wound up being a key witness in Trump’s first impeachment trial. At one point, Willie Geist asked Vindman what he says to those inclined to dismiss his concerns about Trump even after reading his book and hearing his testimony before Congress. Vindman answered by warning “we should not be dismissive,” then he said, “I think the Congress, the Senate, in particular, Senate Republicans abrogated their responsibilities under the Constitution, and under the specific oath they swore during the trial.” “There’s a direct logic link to the 600,000 dead,” Vindman continued. “If the president was held accountable and removed, we would have 600,000 more Americans walking the streets today. If they censured him, the president would have been...
    Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., claimed Monday that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., would have denied the Sep. 11th terrorist attacks happened to prevent a commission from investigating if he were Republican leader at the time.

There would have been an effort to persuade the country that it didn’t happen, or it’s overblown, or who knows what the explanation would have been," he said.  Schiff made the brazen remark during an appearance on CNN, comparing the commission to investigate the Capitol riot events on Jan. 6 to one investigating the worst terrorist attack in American history. Numerous figures on the left have directly compared the two, outraging some of the family members of 9/11 victims. MCCARTHY CALLS CHENEY, KINZINGER ‘PELOSI REPUBLICANS’ "You could have made the same point after 9/11: Do we really need an investigation?"

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo falsely told his viewers on Wednesday night that the US government had never taken the theory that the coronavirus originated from a Wuhan lab leak in China seriously.  Cuomo suggested that the leak theory is a "newer notion" than the previous theory that the virus jumped from animal to human after the Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. intelligence believes at least three Wuhan scientists were hospitalized with COVID-like symptoms back in November 2019.  CHRIS CUOMO SAYS ‘POLITICAL RIGHT’ OBSESSED OVER COVID ORIGINS TO ‘FORWARD AGENDA’ THAT CHINA WAS ‘SNEAKY’ "The government had not been open to the lab theory," Cuomo alleged. "That is why it's so politically charged…Trumpers who were complicit in playing down the pandemic reality in America are now seeing more interest in the China lab theory as some kind of vindication, enough to play ‘I told you so’ with Fauci." However, as NewsBusters news analyst Nicholas Fondacaro pointed out, Cuomo himself reported the "breaking news" about the lab leak theory back in April 2020.  "Alright, we have breaking news on our watch....

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has called for a blue-ribbon commission to investigate state Gov. Andrew Cuomo over his handling of nursing homes amid the COVID-19 pandemic. During an interview with Bloomberg Wednesday, de Blasio said he supported the idea of forming an independent ‘Moreland Commission’ - using the Moreland Act - to probe claims Cuomo purposely under-reported the death toll in state nursing homes.   ‘The whole thing has to be examined,’ de Blasio insisted. ‘We need the full truth. ‘It’s extraordinarily troubling on a human level because we don’t even know what it would’ve meant — how many lives might’ve been saved if things had been done differently.’ Cuomo is already being investigated by the FBI and the US Attorney's Office in Brooklyn over the alleged cover-up.  If enacted, the Moreland Act allows the governor, in person or through those appointed by the governor, to investigate the management and affairs of any department, board, bureau or commission in New York state.  New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has called for a blue-ribbon commission to...

And so do I,' said Trump in the extended interview. Trump used the segment to vent about the election, having skipped Joe Biden's inauguration after weeks claiming it had been rigged.
