    Share this: MTA officials on Tuesday honored subway conductor Mandy Harford and train operator Tamika Waller, whose actions during a service disruption on the L line between Brooklyn and Manhattan were exemplary. Waller first spotted an unauthorized person on the tracks at the First Avenue station in Manhattan, likely saving the person’s life. The incident delayed Harford’s train for an hour, inconveniencing riders from North Williamsburg and Bushwick for whom the L train provides the main access to Manhattan. Video of the incident taken onboard the train on Nov. 23 was posted online and captured Harford’s exceptional communication with customers. Throughout the entire incident, Harford walked through train cars assuring customers police had been notified, and they would be on the move as soon as possible.
    (CNN)House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy should publicly condemn Republican lawmakers whose behavior is violent or increases division, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Sunday. "I think whenever, even in our own caucus, our own members, if they go the wrong direction, I mean, it has to be called out," Hutchinson told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union." "It has to be dealt with, particularly whenever it is breaching the civility, whenever it is crossing the line in terms of violence or increasing the divide in our country."Moderate House Republican warns McCarthy over embracing far-right membersHe continued, "So one of the things that's really important to us in the future is increasing the civil debate, and civil discourse, and we have got to look for ways that we can bring people together, and not divide, and certainly along racial lines."The criticism from the Republican governor comes after the comments and actions of Reps. Paul Gosar of Arizona, who was censured for posting online a photoshopped animé video showing him appearing to kill New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and attacking President...
    PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — While neither Maryland nor Rutgers have played a postseason game in a while, the two Big Ten Conference schools are going to get a taste of one Saturday. Scarlet Knights (5-6, 2-6 Big Ten) and Terrapins (5-6, 2-6) will play for bowl eligibility when they meet in the regular-season finale.

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — There’s no more need for Wake Forest to wonder about the possible championship scenarios. And no more safety net. Win, and the Demon Deacons will play in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game against Pittsburgh. Lose to Boston College on Saturday, and their hopes of a first Atlantic Division title since 2006 are gone. “The biggest thing is we just know what’s at stake this game: Win and you’re in. Win, or go home,” defensive lineman Miles Fox said this week as Wake Forest prepared for the regular-season finale in Chestnut Hill. “I think that’s what’s motivating everybody this week,” Fox said. “Everyone knows how big of a game this is, and we have no choice but to be at our best.” The Demon Deacons (9-2, 6-1 ACC) had a chance to clinch the division title last week, but lost 48-27 to Clemson. That left open the possibility that the two-loss Tigers could play in the conference championship game for the seventh year in a row. But Wake Forest still had the clear path:...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Federal regulators on Tuesday cleared a path to consider Canadian Pacific’s $31 billion acquisition of Kansas City Southern railroad. The U.S. Surface Transportation Board decided that Canadian Pacific’s merger application is complete, dismissing concerns from other railroads. The board also laid out a schedule for its review of the deal that will stretch at least through next July but could be extended. Union Pacific had argued that the merger application didn’t include enough data on how other shipments might be affected by the deal, but regulators said those details weren’t required at this stage. The board also rejected procedural arguments from CSX, Canadian National and BNSF railroads that said the application should be delayed. The $31 billion deal includes 2.884 CP shares and $90 in cash for each shareholder and the assumption of roughly $3.8 billion in debt. Kansas City Southern shareholders will be set to get paid once investors of both railroads vote on the deal next month and Mexican regulators sign off on it. But it won’t be clear if the deal...
    (CNN)Legendary Black radio host Joe Madison is two weeks into a hunger strike that could become a risk to his health. Madison, 72, is doing it for one reason: To pressure President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress to pass voting rights legislation as the GOP actively works to restrict ballot access.As Madison told CNN's Don Lemon on Friday, "Just as food is essential for the existence of life, voting is essential for the existence of democracy."Madison, a civil rights activist turned SiriusXM radio host who was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2019, is so committed to the cause he is willing to put his life on the line. When I spoke to Madison on my own radio show a few days into his hunger strike, he shared that his wife asked him, "Are you telling me that you are willing to die for this cause?" He said he looked at her and responded with one word: "Yes." Madison then added passionately, "This is the new civil rights movement." The fiercest fight of the 21st century...
    Youre breathtaking: The 20 best Keanu Reeves roles 25 Secrets Elon Musk and Every Other Rich Person Knows The halfway point of the NFL season has come and gone. We're now firmly in the second half of the regular season. It's been a bizarre past few weeks. Who's the best team in football? Is anyone actually as good as we thought? Which of these middling AFC teams is worth anything? Which under .500 NFC team will make a push for the bottom playoff spots? This is why we love this league and this sport.  If you're an underdog bettor, you've had a fun start to the NFL season. However, early in the week, we've seen some line movement in the direction of some favorites for Week 11. Which games have betting odds that are on the move, and what does it mean? Chargers appear to be a steam play A steam play is when one side takes action, the line moves, and then the same side keeps taking action and the line keeps moving. It all happens quickly and...

    A look at what’s happening in World Cup qualifying in Europe on Monday: GROUP C Four years after failing to qualify for the World Cup, European champion Italy needs a strong performance at Northern Ireland to be sure of a spot at next year’s tournament in Qatar. The Azzurri lead Switzerland on goal difference entering the final round of qualifiers, with Switzerland hosting Bulgaria. Italy and Switzerland each have 15 points, Northern Ireland and Bulgaria have eight each and Lithuania trails with three. Goal difference is the first tiebreaker and Italy leads Switzerland 11-9 in the category. Italy also leads on goals scored (13 to 11). But if the teams finish level on goal difference and goals scored, Switzerland will finish first courtesy of away goals in their head-to-head meetings after a 0-0 draw in Basel and a 1-1 draw in Rome. Only the first-place finisher gets a direct spot into the finals. The second-place team goes into the playoffs in March, needing to advance past two opponents to reach the World Cup. Italy lost a playoff to Sweden in...
    Tennessee football has a 27 on the field at Neyland Stadium but what is the number for and why is it there for the Vols in Knoxville? If you’ve watched Tennessee football this year, you may have noticed a unique feature on the field at Neyland Stadium: A No. 27 in an orange circle at the 27-yard line. That’s something that hasn’t been there for the Volunteers at home in recent years. So many fans are wondering what the No. 27 is doing there for the Tennessee field.What is the 27 on the Tennessee football field?Prior to the start of the season, the Volunteers agreed to honor former player Al Wilson on the 27-yard line in the year that he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. 27-yard line.

    HOW many times have you spent HOURS applying your false eyelashes flawlessly only to have them ping up within minutes of you entering the club? Well, we have the solution. 4Applying the perfect pressure is crucial as you want secure lashes that last all night longCredit: Getty Measure and trim your false eyelashes We all know we need to trim our lashes before we apply them.

Cut where the marks are on the string and you will have a measurement of the length of your lash line. Hold this against your false eyelashes and trim accordingly so that you get the best fitted lashes ever. Use a make up brush to hold your lashes Just before applying them, place your strip lashes on a make up brush or small tube you are not using....

    CHICAGO (CBS) — More than 10,000 workers at Deere & Company said they’ll stay on strike. They’ve rejected a deal that would have given them 10% raises. Deere workers in Illinois, Iowa and Kansas have been on the picket line since October 14. The workers said the raises and improved benefits offered aren’t enough. A separate group of 100 workers in Colorado and Georgia voted to accept the contract.
    Republican Glenn Youngkin faces former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) in Tuesday’s election, and the outcome will boil down to voter turnout as the two candidates head into Election Day in a dead heat, with more than a million votes already cast. The two candidates are virtually tied in almost every recent poll, but Youngkin, a political newcomer who was essentially unknown prior to running for office, narrowly pulled ahead of longtime politician and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) in the RealClearPolitics average of polls in late October, demonstrating a rare boost of momentum that is giving downtrodden Virginia Republicans hope. Running alongside Youngkin are former Del. Winsome Sears, a Jamaican immigrant and military veteran running for lieutenant governor, and Del. Jason Miyares, a Cuban American hoping to unseat incumbent Attorney General Mark Herring (D). One hundred House of Delegate seats are also up for grabs and present an opportunity for a GOP flip, given some 20-plus of those races are considered toss-ups. While Youngkin, a 54-year-old former CEO in private equity, spent his last day on the campaign trail rallying thousands of supporters in...
    U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is flanked by U.S. Senators' Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) as he faces reporters following the Senate Democrats weekly policy lunch at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, November 2, 2021.Evelyn Hockstein | Reuters Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that Democrats reached an agreement on lowering prescription drug prices, a breakthrough on one of the party's thorniest disputes in their $1.75 trillion reconciliation bill. "I'm pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached to lower prescription drug prices for seniors and families in the Build Back Better legislation," Schumer, D-N.Y., said at a press conference. "Fixing prescription drug pricing has consistently been a top issue for Americans, year after year, including the vast majority of both Democrats and Republicans." The Senate's top Democrat added that the plan will grant the government power to regulate the prices of some of the most expensive drugs on the market and redesign the Medicare drug benefit so it limits out-of-pocket costs for seniors to $2,000 per year.

    A California teacher, who was placed on paid leave, and a high school student are speaking out against the state's stringent COVID-related mandates after he decided to teach his class without a mask, participating in the school's student-led "No Mandate Monday."  Ponderosa High School teacher Michael Wilkes and student Lexi Wagner joined "Fox & Friends First" on Monday to discuss the mandates and why they are pushing back.  ‘NO MANDATE MONDAY’ TAKES HOLD AT CALIFORNIA HS "We need to unite with people that are like-minded and stand up across the board and simply say no to these mandates in order for them to stop," Wilkes explained. "If we have enough of us that stand up and do that and put it on the line, we can win." The "No Mandate Monday" originated after a senior was forced to leave campus last month when the individual declined to wear a mask, a state mandate that affects around 6.7 million students.  Following the incident, students banded together and unmasked in support of the student, in a video that went viral on twitter. ...
    The Houston Astros have their backs against the wall going into Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night against the Atlanta Braves. If the Braves win, they would capture their first World Series title since 1995. If the Astros get the win, they will send the series back to Houston.

    After an action-packed—and sober, thanks to one of their own being hit by a car and killed near a picket line—week, John Deere strikers may have a deal. The UAW and management announced a tentative agreement, pending a vote by the workers, on Saturday.  Over the past week, the company announced it would not cut off benefits and would pay out performance bonuses the workers earned before the strike started, after threatening to withhold it in what would have been a significant act of wage theft. In Iowa, a judge rejected John Deere’s effort to get an injunction against picketers.  Now, the strike will continue through a ratification vote, which will happen Tuesday. Jonah Furman is asking workers what would get them to yes on a contrast and tweeting the responses, in a very interesting thread. ● Meanwhile, in another significant ongoing strike:  x.@SecMartyWalsh made history yesterday at the Kellogg’s strike -- becoming the first labor secretary in U.S. history to join workers on a picket line.Walsh told @BCTGM members that President Biden and the administration “are watching.

    The 25 best album closers/finales This Is the State Where the Most People Drive Pickups Expansion from the current four-team playoff model is likely, but college football executives disagree on a new format. In 1994, a 25-member NCAA committee assigned to explore a college football playoff buried the lead. On Page 11 of the committee’s 22-page document revealing its findings, the most important information exists—the postseason formats to be considered.  Option A, the document says, is a one-game championship (something that, as it happens, arrived four years later with the BCS). Option B is a four-team event that the document’s author dubs as a “Final Four tournament” (Twenty years later, of course, the four-team CFP began). Finally, there are options C and D: (C) an eight-team playoff and (D) a 12-team playoff. Each would use a bracket that consists of a combination of automatic qualifiers and at-large berths, and, get this, the 12-teamer would grant first-round byes to the top four teams. Sound familiar? “That’s where it all started,” says former UCLA administrator John Sandbrook, a member of that...

    Syracuse has been living on the edge for most of the season and, in retrospect, that’s been good for the team’s psyche. “We know that we’re able to play with and compete against everybody,” senior defensive lineman Cody Roscoe said. “Every game is going to be a dogfight. Games are not going to be easy. If it does come down to the end, we’ve got to be ready for the moment.” Syracuse (4-4, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) played four straight games that were decided by three points and won one before breezing past Virginia Tech 41-36 last week on the road with two touchdowns in the final three minutes. “I feel like it was a really big win,” Roscoe said. “It put us in the right direction. It was a game we needed. It’s still a close game at that. It was like five hard-fought games back to back to back to back to back. I feel like it got us on the right path. We just have to continue to build on that.” Added coach Dino Babers: “I think...
    Glover Teixeira’s legacy is on the line at UFC 267 Chuck Vitolo October 28, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit Glover Teixeira turns 42-years-old today. Yet, today will not be a day filled with celebration and relaxation — Teixeira is gearing up for the biggest fight of his life on Saturday night at UFC 267. Likely, he’s in the midst of a massive weight cut to get down to the 205-pound light heavyweight championship limit. This won’t be the first time the Brazilian native will be fighting for UFC gold, but, it will be far and away his best shot at actually attaining it. Teixeira put forth an admirable effort against Jon Jones back at UFC 172 in 2013, but really, did not have a true chance of winning that fight against a young Jon Jones — even at full strength (Teixeira tore the labrum in his right shoulder early on in the fight, rendering his best weapon useless). At UFC 267, Glover Teixeira (32-7,...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Florida Panthers coach Joel Quenneville coached his team on Wednesday. What happens Thursday will likely determine if he keeps that job. Quenneville will meet with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman on Thursday in New York about his role in what happened — and what didn’t happen — in Chicago during the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs, when a player named Kyle Beach claimed he was sexually assaulted by Blackhawks assistant Brad Aldrich.

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields saw right tackle Elijah Wilkinson studying film in the team hotel with offensive line coach Juan Castillo on Sunday morning. So Fields was caught off guard in the locker room at Raymond James Stadium when he heard Wilkinson wouldn’t be available for Sunday afternoon’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because he was going on the reserve/COVID-19 list. “I was just surprised,” Fields said. “Because I just saw him 45 minutes ago watching film with Coach Juan, figuring he was going to play. So I mean, that’s the life of the NFL. You just have to have next guy up.” Wilkinson was the fifth Bears player to go on the COVID-19 list in the last 11 days, and his absence proved costly in a 38-3 loss considering the team already was thin on the offensive line because of injuries. The Bears already were without starting right tackle Germain Ifedi, who is on injured reserve with a knee injury. Rookie left tackle Teven Jenkins remains out after back surgery, and rookie tackle...
    Washington (CNN)The neck-and-neck race for Virginia governor has entered its final week, with Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Youngkin nationalizing their campaigns in markedly different ways.For McAuliffe, a steady stream of high-profile Democratic surrogates has turned the race into a referendum about the past eight years of Democratic leadership in the commonwealth as well as the first year of President Joe Biden's term. Biden will make his second trip across the Potomac River to rally support for McAuliffe on Tuesday evening in Arlington, following a July visit there to boost McAuliffe after the former governor clinched the Democratic nomination.McAuliffe is closing the campaign much like he opened it: by looking to tie Youngkin to former President Donald Trump. "There could not be a more stark difference" in the race, McAuliffe said Sunday in Charlottesville. "I am running against someone who has been endorsed by Donald Trump, not once, not twice, not three times, not four times, not five times -- six times endorsed by Donald Trump." For Youngkin, the push to nationalize the race has not come in the...

    BALTIMORE (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals have waited a while for a game like this. There’s no point in downplaying it. READ MORE: President Joe Biden Arrives In Baltimore, CNN Town Hall Underway“There’s something to this game,” tight end C.J. Uzomah said. “It is a huge game, and we’re not treating it like a normal game.” After five straight losing seasons, the Bengals have a chance to move into a tie for first atop the AFC North if they can win at division-leading Baltimore on Sunday. Yes, the season is less than half over, but for a Cincinnati team with young standouts at quarterback and receiver, this is a chance for the Bengals to see how they measure up against the team with the conference’s best record. And a team that has dominated the Bengals of late. The Ravens have won five in a row in this series, and the past three haven’t been close. Baltimore beat Cincinnati 49-13 in their second meeting of 2019, then swept the Bengals last season without allowing a touchdown. The Ravens won 27-3 and...

    Nathan Eovaldi wants the ball, the pressure, the chance to extend Boston's season — all of it. "I love it," he said Thursday, a day before he was scheduled to face Houston in Game 6 of the AL Championship Series, which the Astros lead three games to two. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "I feel like this is what everybody wants to do," Eovaldi said. "Every guy in the locker room wants to be able to start tomorrow and be able to be in this situation, and I’m thankful that I get to be here and be able to do it. There’s just something about when everything is on the line, and I think it brings the best out of us." The Red Sox split the first two games in the series in Houston, earning an opportunity to advance to the World Series in Boston. But after winning Game 3 in a second straight rout to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven ALCS, the offense has stalled while the Astros' has awakened. Now the series returns...
    The Atlanta Police Department is highlighting how officers "put their lives on the line every single day" to protect the community after posting video footage of an officer who was hit by a car on a highway as he investigated a separate crash.  "We often say, ‘officers put their lives on the line every single day to protect and serve their community’-not many understand how real that statement is. Whether officers are conducting a traffic stop, serving warrants on known gang members in a dimly lit housing complex, patrolling the streets at 3 a.m., or responding to an auto accident on I285, their safety is always at risk and their bravery is always on display," the City of Atlanta Police Department posted on Facebook Tuesday, accompanied by footage of the recent crash. The footage shows Officer Steven Randerson, a nine-year veteran of the Atlanta Police Department, investigating a crash earlier this month on I-75. The officer had parked his patrol car behind the crashed vehicle, and was standing within the right shoulder of the highway.  WISCONSIN TRAFFIC STOP SHOOTOUT HIGHLIGHTS...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden wanted the stakes to be perfectly clear when he sat down with nine liberal Democrats in the Oval Office Tuesday to discuss ongoing legislative negotiations.Going around the room and staring them each in the eye, the President warned of dire consequences if he arrives in Scotland next week for a United Nations climate summit without a deal that meets his pledge to dramatically reduce American greenhouse gas emissions."The prestige of the United States is on the line," Biden told the group, according to one participant -- Rep. Ro Khanna, a California Democrat. "I need this to go represent the United States overseas. I need people to see that the Democratic Party is working, that the country is working, that we can govern."A week before he is set to depart for Europe and the COP26 summit, Biden and White House officials are scrambling to wrap up the slogging negotiations over his sweeping domestic agenda, which would include the largest-ever US investment to combat climate change. They are increasingly using the looming summit as another tool to try and...
    Law enforcement leaders are pinning blame on the "defund the police" movement and liberal soft-on-crime prosecutors for the dramatic rise of assaults and violence toward police officers in 2020, which increased by 4,000 attacks from 2019. New FBI statistics show that 60,105 law enforcement officers were assaulted on the job in 2020, with 30.9% of them – 18,568 – suffering injuries as a result. The total number of officers assaulted jumped by 4,071 from 2019, when 56,034 line-of-duty assaults were reported, the FBI said. The president of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund (LELDF) Jason Johnson blamed the spike in assaults due to the rise of activist movements, including defund the police, which encouraged the decriminalization of crimes, emboldening criminals and making it harder for police to do their jobs. OVER 60K POLICE, LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS ASSAULTED IN 2020, UP BY 4,000+ FROM YEAR BEFORE, FBI SAYS "This spike in assaults on law enforcement officers comes at a time in which law enforcement is seemingly under attack on all fronts," Johnson told Fox News.  "Activists have called for (some successfully)...
    Democrat Terry McAuliffe debates Republican Glenn Youngkin on the fundamental rights of millions of Americans. There’s a lot riding on next month’s election in Virginia, where Republicans are spending heavily to try to retake the state and roll back huge progressive gains. Abortion rights are at the top of that list, with a Supreme Court poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. The new battleground is going to be the states, with Virginia leading the way. Democrat Terry McAuliffe, running for an historic second term as governor, sees the danger from the Supreme Court. “I think they will undercut, undermine, question viability and all the other things they’re going to do. I think they’re going to roll back protections we’ve had since Roe v Wade, so I’m very concerned,” he said ahead of the Supreme Court resuming earlier this month. He’ll preserve those protections in his state. His opponent won’t, and has said so. Please send $3 to help McAuliffe preserve abortion rights in Virginia! x x YouTube Video That’s Glenn Youngkin in the final debate in the race, telling moderator Chuck Todd that he...
    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Bobby Wagner has seen the highlights of what happens when Najee Harris gets in space and there’s a defender within arm’s reach. And it’s not good. Not if you’re a defender anyway. “When he reads the holes, when he sees it, he hits it,” the longtime Seattle Seahawks linebacker said of Harris, a rookie running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers. “I think he stiff-armed somebody out of bounds in the Raiders game. Definitely somebody you’ve got to get a body on.” Unless, of course, Harris gets his body on you first. It’s a collision the 6-foot-1, 232-pound Harris often wins. Las Vegas safety Johnathan Abrams found himself one-on-one in the flat with Harris in Week 2. Abrams’ attempted tackle instead ended with Harris extending his left arm and planting Abrams — an inch shorter and 30 pounds lighter — into the Heinz Field turf. Abrams and the Raiders enjoyed the last laugh, sending the Steelers to a 26-17 loss. Setbacks against Cincinnati and Green Bay followed. It served as a bit of a shock to Harris,...
    The annual National Police Week honoring fallen officers is normally held in May, but this year’s observance was moved to Oct. 14-16 due to the pandemic. Among the 264 cops who are being memorialized are four Chicago police officers who died from the virus. And that makes it all the more shocking that the Chicago police union chose the day before the COVID-delayed police week to post a guide to “COVID-19 Exemption Forms.” The site also has a link to a “Vaccine Mandate Update 10/12/21” video in which union president John Catanzara announced his determination not to comply.
    No. 11 Kentucky (6-0, 4-0 SEC) at No. 1 Georgia (6-0, 4-0), Saturday at 3:30 p.m. EDT (CBS). Line: Georgia by 21 1/2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Series record: Georgia leads 60-12-2. WHAT’S AT STAKE? The winner gains control of the SEC East race and is likely headed for a spot in the league championship game. Georgia’s defense, which has allowed just two touchdowns all season, will look to turn in another stifling performance in its bid to go down as one of the greatest units of the modern era. Kentucky gets a chance to show it can compete with the nation’s elite programs in a sport that’s not basketball. KEY MATCHUP Kentucky’s running game vs. Georgia’s defensive front. The Wildcats, who are averaging 214.2 yards per game on the ground, must establish some sort of effective running attack to have any chance of knocking off the nation’s top-ranked team. But that’s easier said than done against a Bulldogs defense that is surrendering an average of just 64.2 yards rushing. Kentucky ranks next-to-last in the SEC in passing yards; the...
    Can you solve these real Jeopardy! clues about horror movies? 10 things before the opening bell © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson’s work in bringing his team back from a 16-point deficit in the fourth quarter on Monday night was called “one of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen” by Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. The reaction on the other side was different. Colts head coach Frank Reich regretted getting conservative in the fourth quarter when they could have put the game away and the team’s defense was left trying to explain why they went from holding the Ravens in check to being unable to stop them at all. Injuries in the secondary played a role and Jackson had plenty of time to find open receivers as breakdowns occurred at every level of the defense. The failure led linebacker Darius Leonard to call this the worst loss of his career. “When the game was on the line, the defense didn’t step up,” Leonard said, via Joel...
    STEVE Coogan will be stepping into the shoes of disgraced and predatory TV host Jimmy Savile for a new BBC drama. The Reckoning will follow the life of Savile from his modest beginnings all the way to stardom, with a particular focus on how his abusive behaviour was covered up. 1Jimmy Savile often did charity work as a means of accessing vulnerable victims When will Steve Coogan playing Jimmy Savile in The Reckoning be on TV? Filming for the series began in October 2021 in Bolton, Greater Manchester. The lead star, Steve Coogan, was spotted by fans clad in a jester costume. There's no release date yet for the new series - or even a trailer - but it's already been hit by backlash. Many critics have pointed out that Savile spent much of his career at the BBC and an inquiry found that the broadcaster had repeatedly missed opportunities to bring Savile to justice. The BBC has since reassured fans that they plan to treat the content of the series with "utmost sensitivity...
