GUARDIAN: Jeffrey Toobin, one of the most sought after legal analysts alive, has been suspended from his job at The New Yorker after he reportedly was seen masturbating on a work Zoom call, believing he was out of view. He's also apparently on hiatus from CNN, where he frequently appears. Toobin is a liberal, yet he covered Hillary's emails TO DEATH in 2016 and beyond, expressing remorse over his role in hyping a nothing-burger of a story in 2019.
THE HILL: There will be some mic muting at the second and final presidential debate. What are the odds that Trump will bag it?
JOE.MY.GOD.: Rush Limbaugh's cancer is worsening. (Finally.)
THR: The amazing Jeff Bridges, who is 70, has revealed that he has lymphoma. He is optimistic:
As the Dude would say.. New S**T has come to light. I have been diagnosed with Lymphoma. Although it is a serious disease, I feel fortunate that I have a great team of doctors and the prognosis is good. I’m starting treatment and will keep you posted on my recovery.
EXTRA: Tragically, the legendary Robert Redford's son James has died of cancer at 58.
WAPO: The SCOTUS just barely allowed a decision to stand whereby Pennsylvania voters' votes could be counted so long as they were mailed on Election Day and received with three days. Half the goddamned Court wanted to throw those votes in the trash.

CNN: Jon Ossoff speaks out (again) on his opponent Sen. David Perdue's racist mangling of Sen. Kamala Harris's name — and Trump just did the same thing:
"What really struck a nerve here was that what my opponent did really epitomized everything that's wrong with the Trump era," says @ossoff of Sen. David Perdue mispronouncing Kamala Harris' name at a rally.— CNN (@CNN) October 20, 2020

GR8ERDAYS: I am giving an A-plus to the brilliantly directed and acted Designing Women pilot table read, done for charity. Kyra Segdwick replaced the late, great Dixie Carter flawlessly and Wendi McLendon-Covey was a fine Suzanne, plus Jean Smart and Annie Potts are just absolutely amazing. This blew away the slapdash, live Golden Girls read, and I vastly prefer GG to DW as a show. Plus, Smart, Potts and creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason did a wonderful Q&A to go along-with.
