With so much going on in our world, we sometimes miss important issues. Please feel free to share any headlines or new developments we may have missed providing they come from reliable and credible sources.  In other words, please do not post any missed headlines form far right ‘news’ sources or regurgitate their Russian propaganda unless you’re trying to point out that the far-right extremist in our country and elsewhere actually believe their own BS or Russian disinformation.   The same applies to what is currently happening in Israel. We also ask that you provide a link to your source so folks can read it if they want. Please do not make any claims that you cannot factually validate or verify.

Radio Station Parts Ways With Host Who Interviewed Biden After Debate

Andrea Lawful-Sanders acknowledged on Saturday that she asked questions provided by Biden’s team.

A Philadelphia radio station has cut ties with a host who admitted to using predetermined questions provided by Joe Biden’s team in an interview after last month’s presidential debate.

“On July 3, the first post-debate interview with President Joe Biden was arranged and negotiated independently by WURD Radio host Andrea Lawful-Sanders without knowledge, consultation or collaboration with WURD management,” Sara M. Lomax, president and CEO of WURD Radio, said in a statement Sunday.

Health-COVID-19:

Mask bans are growing in popularity. Critics call the trend a ‘dog whistle’ to quell protest.

Amid calls to reinstate mask bans, Covid-19 cases remain on the rise in 38 states, according to the CDC.

Elected officials in New York City and Los Angeles have signaled recently that they’re open to reinstating decades-old mask bans after several tense pro-Palestinian demonstrations, where local officials say masked protesters aimed to conceal their identity. Republicans in North Carolina recently signed a controversial mask restriction into law, sparking an intense debate between supporters who cite safety concerns and critics who argue it could affect protesting and free speech rights. In January, Philadelphia banned ski masks in public spaces in an effort to reduce crime, citing several incidents of violence involving masked gunmen.

But for many opponents, mask crackdowns of any kind raise serious concerns about their immediate and long-term threat to public health.

“It sends a bit of [an] authoritarian chill down my spine,” said Katherine Macfarlane, the director of the disability law and policy program at Syracuse University College of Law.
