Adams proposed his new policy early in February, and insisted the program that would allow illegals to feed themselves would save the city millions of dollars in often wasted food-service costs.

Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri has urged Jonathan Kanter, assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's Antitrust Division, to seek to put the kibosh on the planned acquisition of Discover by Capital One.

CBS News allegedly seized Catherine Herridge's files, records after suddenly terminating her employment: Report | Blaze Media

CBS News is facing accusations that it seized computers, files, and records — "including information on privileged sources" — that belong to reporter Catherine Herridge.

Last week, CBS News terminated Herridge's employment as part of a layoff impacting fewer than two dozen employees at CBS News. Her surprise termination sent shockwaves through Washington because Herridge is a respected, award-winning journalist with a storied career. She is seen as a bastion of "old school" journalism, covering major topics the legacy media often ignores.
