WASHINGTON - Lawmakers on Wednesday, Nov. 1, publicly shared several of the 3,000 Facebook ads bought by Russian operatives as they sought to shape American political conversation during the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath by inflaming some of the nation's deepest social divides. The ads - some of which directly praise Republican Donald Trump or denigrate his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton - made visceral appeals to voters upset about illegal immigration, the declining economic fortunes of coal miners or the rising prominence of Muslims in some U.S. communities.
NEW YORK - Authorities said Wednesday that the 29-year-old man accused of mowing down pedestrians and cyclists on a Manhattan bike path, killing eight people, had plotted for weeks before carrying out the attack in the name of the Islamic State. Officials identified the suspected attacker as Sayfullo Saipov, a legal permanent resident of the United States who arrived in the country from Uzbekistan in 2010. They said Saipov was influenced by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, and its violent tactics after he came to the United States.
The top newsroom executive at NPR resigned on Wednesday, a day after he was placed on leave by the broadcast news organization following reports that he had harassed at least three women.
Twenty years ago, at age 39, I began having memory and cognitive problems. My primary-care doctor and my neurologists said I was stressed and depressed. I also was diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, or MCI. Ten years later, I received another diagnosis. Well, really two. One doctor said I had Alzheimer's disease, and another thought it was semantic dementia.
The Utah nurse who drew national attention after she was manhandled and arrested for refusing to let a police detective take blood from an unconscious patient said Tuesday she had reached a $500,000 settlement with Salt Lake City and the university that runs her hospital.
President Donald Trump's lawyers argued in a new court filing late Tuesday that he was expressing a political opinion last year when he called accusations of sexual misconduct against him as false and the accusers "liars," seeking to dismiss a defamation complaint by a woman who said he groped her. Summer Zervos, a former contestant on Trump's reality television show "The Apprentice" and now a California restaurant owner, filed her lawsuit against Trump in January, three days before his inauguration.
You may remember, what seems like 15 years ago, when Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to offer a candy-related metaphor. In this metaphor, a bowl full of Skittles were refugees, but three of the Skittles were poison. There were many problems with this metaphor. Trump is back at it with the candy-related metaphors, seeking to make a point about socialism using his daughter's trick-or-treating haul from Halloween on Tuesday night. And yet again, he doesn't seem to have thought it through completely.
Two strangers were caught engaged in a sexual act on a Delta Air Lines flight from Los Angeles to Detroit Sunday night, airline officials said. The 48-year-old woman and 28-year-old man, who have not been publicly named, reportedly had not met before the flight, during which the woman allegedly performed oral sex on the man while they were both in their seats, police told WDIV-Local 4 in Detroit. The man was flying to Detroit to catch a connecting flight to Miami, while the woman was going to catch a connecting flight to Nashville.
More than 20 times since he became president, President Trump has claimed that the tax plan under consideration in Congress was the largest tax cut in the history of the United States. He made this claim even before many details were set, but from the beginning it was nonsense. It was so easily debunked that we just tossed it in our ongoing database of false and misleading Trump claims, rather than do a full-fledged fact check.
