Sex Crimes on Campus Are Going Public Harvard, Ohio State and 53 other colleges and universities — including Catholic University in Washington, DC — are under suspicion of mishandling complaints of sexual assault on campus. Today's release of an embarrassing list by the Department of Education follows Vice President Biden's warning that universities "face the facts." It demonstrates that a subject too tough for prior generations to talk about is now hot-button politics. Today's disclosures are part of an on-going movement. We trace its progress and see what might be next.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
