Readers of the Wall Street Journal may have felt a bit of whiplash on Thursday over a news story and an opinion column that presented sharply conflicting accounts of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s alleged role in one of his son’s business ventures.

The Journal column — hailed as a bombshell before the final presidential debate by Biden critics, including President Trump — asserted that Biden was involved in a deal arranged by his son Hunter with a Chinese energy conglomerate in 2017.

Columnist Kimberley Strassel relied on the account of Hunter Biden’s former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, who provided documents that “suggest Hunter was cashing in on the Biden name and that Joe Biden was involved.”

But a few hours after Strassel’s column was published, the Journal’s news side offered a much different take.


Russian journalist dies after setting herself on fire

Irina Slovina, Russian journalist dies after self immolationA Russian journalist died on Friday after setting herself on fire in front of the local branch of the interior ministry in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, a day after her apartment was searched by police, her news outlet said.

Prior to her self-immolation, Irina Slavina wrote on her Facebook page: “I ask you to blame the Russian Federation for my death.” She worked as editor-in-chief at Koza Press, a small local news outlet that advertised itself as having “no censorship, no orders ‘from above’”.

A day before her death, she wrote on Facebook that police officers and investigators had searched her apartment, writing that they were looking for “brochures, leaflets and accounts” from the Open Russia opposition group, which is financed by Kremlin critic Mikhail Khodorkovsky.


Trump Aide Refuses to Answer Basic Questions, So CNN’s Tapper Cuts Off Pointless Interview

Peter navarro tossed off CNN interview

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro showed up Sunday on CNN for yet another trainwreck interview that featured him obfuscating and loudly arguing with the host while refusing to answer direct questions.

In this instance, however, State of the Union moderator Jake Tapper finally had enough, cutting the seemingly pointless interview short after Navarro said the host and CNN are not being honest with the public.

Navarro set the tone for the combative morning chat when he took Tapper’s first question about the disastrous and deadly West Coast wildfires and twisted it into a pat on the back for the president.


Mexican journalist who wrote about crime found beheaded

Julio Valdivia, Mexican crime journalist, found beheadedA Mexican journalist who wrote about crime in the violent Gulf Coast state of Veracruz was found beheaded on Wednesday, local media reported, the latest grisly murder of a reporter in one of the world’s most dangerous nations for journalists.

The body of Julio Valdivia, 44, who specialized in the “nota roja” journalism that focuses on gruesome crime and violence, was found in the remote Tezonapa municipality, about 100 kilometers from the state capital, Veracruz.

A staff member at Valdivia’s Diario El Mundo local newspaper in Veracruz said initially it was suspected that Valdivia might have been run over by a train, but that was ruled out by the prosecutor’s office.


Assange's legal fight to avoid U.S. espionage trial resumes in London

Assange fighting extradition to USJulian Assange resumed his battle in a London court on Monday to avoid extradition to the United States to face criminal charges over the activities of his WikiLeaks website, after months of delay due to the coronavirus lockdown.

The U.S. authorities accuse Australian-born Assange, 49, of conspiring to hack government computers and of violating an espionage law in connection with the release of confidential cables by WikiLeaks in 2010-2011.

Assange, clean-shaven and wearing a suit at Monday’s hearing, formally declined to be extradited to face a superseding indictment issued by U.S. authorities in June.


Fox News’ Bret Baier Calls Out Trump for Trying to ‘Cancel’ Fox Reporter Jennifer Griffin

Bret Baier calls out FOX

Filling in for Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday this weekend, Bret Baier took the opportunity to accuse President Donald Trump of “cancel culture” hypocrisy for saying Fox News should fire the reporter who confirmed the explosive story from The Atlantic about his verbal attacks on the U.S. military.

“Jennifer Griffin should be fired for this kind of reporting,” the president tweeted on Friday after Fox’s national security correspondent confirmed with her sources that, among other things, he had described U.S. service members as “suckers” and “losers.” Trump added, “Never even called us for comment. @FoxNews is gone!”

“Have you ever heard the president use any of that language about veterans, dead or alive, ever being around him?” Baier asked Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin Sunday morning.

Trump wants FOX News Reporter firedPresident Donald Trump has railed against cancel culture but called for Fox News’ national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin to be fired on Friday night for her confirmation of The Atlantic’s bombshell report that Trump referred to military service members as “losers” and “suckers.”

She “should be fired for this kind of reporting. Never even called us for comment. @FoxNews is gone!” Trump tweeted. He linked to an article on far-right news site Breitbart that said Griffin had only confirmed “key parts” of story rather than “the most salacious” details.
