8 Israeli soldiers killed as fighting continues in Rafah

8 Israeli soldiers killed in RafahEight Israeli soldiers were killed in the southern Gaza Strip on Saturday, the military said, as forces continued to push in and around the southern city of Rafah and strikes hit several areas of Gaza, killing at least 19 Palestinians.

The soldiers, all members of a combat engineering unit, were in an armored carrier that was hit by an explosion that detonated engineering materials being carried on the vehicle, apparently in contravention of standard practice, the military said. It said the early morning incident, in the Tel al-Sultan area in the west of Rafah, was being investigated.

The armed wing of the Palestinian militant group Hamas said the vehicle had been trapped in a prepared minefield that set off the explosion.

He interviewed presidents and presidential wannabes, and provided a critical look behind the curtain of Capitol Hill as a regular analyst on cable television, dissecting the daily machinations of politics with a sharp wit and the mind of a journalism historian that spanned decades.

Fineman began his career in the late 1960s at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York, as a cub reporter and, later, editor-in-chief of The Colgate Maroon student newspaper.


Body Of Missing British TV Presenter Found On Greek Island

British TV presenter's body found on Greek islandThe body of missing British TV presenter Michael Mosley was found on a Greek island Sunday morning after a days-long search, his family said.

Mosley’s wife said in a statement that her husband took the wrong route on a hike and collapsed in a place where his body couldn’t easily be seen. Mosley went missing on the island of Symi on Wednesday afternoon.

“Michael was an adventurous man, it’s part of what made him so special,” Dr. Clare Bailey Mosley said. “It’s devastating to have lost Michael, my wonderful, funny, kind and brilliant husband. We had an incredibly lucky life together. We loved each other very much and were so happy together.”


Israel revokes decision to shut down Associated Press news agency's Gaza live feed

AP feed from Gaza restored

Israel has returned broadcasting equipment belonging to the Associated Press, hours after seizing it in southern Israel and shutting down the US news agency's live feed of Gaza.

Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi reversed the decision, which has led to mounting international pressure.

The White House expressed concern, while the Foreign Press Association said it was alarmed by “the latest in a series of chilling steps by the Israeli government to stifle the media”. The UN condemned the move, calling it "shocking".

AP’s vice-president Lauren Easton said it "decries in the strongest terms the actions of the Israeli government".


Rudy Giuliani suspended by New York radio station over 2020 election lies

Rudy GuilianiThe former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani’s troubles deepened on Friday when he was suspended by WABC radio, for trying to use his show to discuss the lie that the 2020 presidential election was lost by Donald Trump because of electoral fraud.

John Catsimatidis, a New York billionaire, Republican donor and owner of WABC, told the New York Times: “We’re not going to talk about fallacies of the November 2020 election. We warned him once. We warned him twice. And I get a text from him last night, and I get a text from him this morning that he refuses not to talk about it.

“So he left me no option. I suspended him.”

Giuliani said he had been fired.

In a lengthy statement, the former mayor said: “I’m learning from a leak to the New York Times that I’m being fired by John Catsimatidis and WABC because I refused to comply with their overly broad directive stating, word-for-word, that I’m ‘prohibited from engaging in conversations relating to the 2020 presidential election’.”

TVNL Comment: Why was this liar allowed to have a show in the first place?????


Kim Godwin out at ABC News

Kim Godwin out at ABC News

Kim Godwin is leaving as the head of ABC News, she announced to employees on Sunday evening.

Godwin is retiring after what she called a time of “considerable reflection,” she wrote in a note obtained by The Hill.

In another note to staff, Debra O’Connell, a longtime executive at Disney, which owns ABC News, said she would be taking over for Godwin.

“Anyone who’s passionate about what we do knows there’s no other business like it, so this was not an easy or quick decision,” Godwin wrote in her note. “I’m certain it’s the right one for me as I look to the future and prioritize what’s most important for me and my family.”

Godwin’s ouster comes amid a slew of headlines surrounding her leadership style and management in recent days.

Israel throws out Al Jazeera, says global media outlet backs Hamas

Al Jazeera thrown out of Israel - the great 'DEMOCRACY'

Arab media giant Al Jazeera said Sunday it would "pursue every legal step" to continue operations in Israel, hours after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet voted to shut down the Qatari-based global outlet until the war in Gaza ends.

Netanyahu, who has long accused Al Jazeera of bias toward Hamas, said the cabinet determined the outlet was a threat to national security.

"Al Jazeera correspondents have harmed the security of Israel and incited against (Israeli) soldiers," Netanyahu said. "The time has come to eject Hamas's mouthpiece from our country."

Al Jazeera rejected those claims as a "dangerous and ridiculous lie" that puts its journalists at risk. The network is funded by the Qatari government, which has been a key mediator in cease-fire talks. Like many media outlets around the world, however, Al Jazeera has been critical of Israel's military operation in Gaza.
