WAPO: Time to leave CNN in the dustbin of history — its new boss wants to remake it as Trump-friendly, and is shit-canning serious journalists to do so. Whoever stays is garbage. I'm looking at you, Don and Anderson. The villain? Christ Licht:
Several current and former CNN employees who spoke with The Washington Post — most of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak candidly — are interpreting the sudden exodus as evidence that Licht, who joined the network as chairman and CEO in May, is starting his tenure by casting out voices that had often been critical of former president Donald Trump and his allies, in an effort to present a new, more ideologically neutral CNN. That aligns with a vision repeatedly expressed by David Zaslav, the chief executive of Warner Bros. Discovery.

L.A. TIMES: The accuser who started the Armie Hammer drama has renounced the — admittedly, very exploitative-seeming and luridly promoted — House of Hammer.

HUFF POST: Things are looking up, electorally, for Democrats ... but if they fail to hold the House, this will likely be why: intentionally racist gerrymandering.
DAILY JOURNAL: Cory Patterson of Shannon, Mississippi, stole a twin-engine plane, took off and spent hours in the air, all the while threatening to crash it into a Walmart. (No great loss.) He wound up landing it safely and was apprehended. Based on a Facebook message, it sounds like this was a suicide gesture.
