Also not discussed by Trump, and barely noticed by much of the corporate media: the weekend bombing of an Islamic mosque in Minnesota.  Also today: Emails obtained from the USDA reveal that employees at the federal agency were instructed to avoid the use of phases such as "climate change" after Trump took office.

The revelations echoes those recently reported about Exxon and other fossil fuel companies, who confirmed the science of climate change decades ago, but then spent millions on climate change denialism in hopes of confusing and misleading both the public and their own investors. Finally today, another Fox 'News' star is suspended amidst new allegations of sexual harassment. Are we starting to see a pattern here yet?Read more »
