NBC won't send announcers to 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing due to COVID-19

Winter Olympics 2022As the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games approach and COVID-19 concerns mount, NBC Sports will not send any of its announcing teams to China, a spokesperson told USA TODAY Sports Wednesday afternoon.

“The announce teams for these Olympics, including figure skating, will be calling events from our Stamford (Conn.) facility due to COVID concerns,” Greg Hughes, senior vice president communications, NBC Sports, said in a phone interview.

"We’ll still have a large presence on the ground in Beijing and our coverage of everything will be first rate as usual, but our plans are evolving by the day as they are for most media companies covering the Olympics.”

NBC’s broadcasting teams for figure skating, Alpine skiing and snowboarding had been expected to be in Beijing, but those plans have been canceled.

MSNBC Thanks 'Loyal Viewer' Trump After Hosts Read Insulting Statement Aloud

Morning Joe and Mika B.
Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski ridiculed Donald Trump Monday after he issued a statement trashing their MSNBC show.
The former president marked Martin Luther King Jr. Day by sending out a statement insulting the cable news program, saying their ratings are low and then misusing a word to criticize them.
"They are having an extremely hard time finding an audience to listen to the Fake News they spurn,” Trump wrote, saying the opposite of what he was apparently trying to convey.

“We do spurn fake news,” Brzezinski noted, correctly using the word with its definition of “reject with disdain or contempt.”

TVNL Comment: How does such an igorant man as Trump still have a following?  He's as embarrassing as anyone can possibly be.  Wake up,  Trumpers.  You're better than that.

Media groups protest limits on access to trial for ex-officers in George Floyd death

US District Judge Paul MagnusonA coalition of media groups says restrictions on access to the federal civil rights trial of three former Minneapolis police officers charged in George Floyd's death amount to an unconstitutional closing of the courtroom.

Citing the risks of the pandemic, U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson has restricted the number of people who may be in his courtroom for the proceedings against Tou Thao, J. Kueng and Thomas Lane on charges that they deprived Floyd of his rights while acting under government authority. Jury selection begins Thursday. Magnuson has also restricted how much can be seen on a closed-circuit feed of the proceedings, which will be relayed to overflow rooms where only a limited number of journalists and members of the public can watch.

DirecTV to drop far-right channel OAN from its service

Direct TV

U.S. satellite broadcaster DirecTV said on Friday it will drop far-right channel One America News (OAN) from its service when its contract expires, in a blow to the popular news network.

OAN, which rose to prominence amid the triumph and tumult of the administration of then-President Donald Trump, has been criticized for spreading conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2020 election.

"We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires," a DirecTV spokesperson said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

BBC Says Interview With Lawyer Alan Dershowitz Over Maxwell Verdict Was Not 'Suitable'

BBC Says Interview with Dershowitz was not suitable

The BBC’s coverage of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial – which ended with a guilty verdict Wednesday – backfired when the broadcasters attempted to analyze the result shortly afterwards with Alan Dershowitz.

Maxwell, a close associate of the disgraced financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, was found guilty on five charges related to sex trafficking and the grooming of girls and young women.

She could face a maximum sentence of 65 years in prison.

NYT must turn Veritas papers overA New York state judge on Friday ordered the New York Times to return internal documents to the conservative activist group Project Veritas, a restriction the newspaper said violates decades of First Amendment protections.

In an unusual written ruling, Justice Charles Wood of the Westchester County Supreme Court directed the New York Times to return to Project Veritas any physical copies of legal memos prepared by one of the group's lawyers, and to destroy electronic versions.

Wood had entered a temporary order against the New York Times last month, drawing criticism from freedom of the press advocates. read more

‘The guy should be fired on the spot’: Fauci rebukes Fox News host over violent rhetoric

Fauci fires back at FOX : he should be fired!

Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, on Tuesday called on Fox News to fire host Jesse Watters for targeting him with violent rhetoric at a conservative conference earlier this week.

“That’s awful that he said that. And he’s going to go, very likely, unaccountable,” Fauci told CNN of Watters’ remarks. “I mean, whatever network he’s on is not going to do anything for him. I mean, that’s crazy. The guy should be fired on the spot.”

Speaking on Monday at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest conference, Watters encouraged attendees to rhetorically “ambush” Fauci with dubious questions about the National Institutes of Health allegedly funding “gain-of-function” research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“Now you go in for the kill shot. The kill shot? With an ambush? Deadly. Because he doesn’t see it coming,” Watters said.
