CNN has agreed to pay $70 million to settle a 15-year-old labor lawsuit brought by over 200 former CNN camera operators, broadcast engineers, and other technicians. The group of employees sued the network after it replaced them with non-union workers. The plaintiffs accused the network of cutting them in order to avoid negotiating with their union and violating federal labor laws. CNN held that it was not legally required to work with the union because the workers were contractors through Team Video Services.The settlement, which was agreed to by both parties, must still be approved by

Hint to CNN employees. Collect your $70 million before Lin Wood takes them to the cleaners on his lawsuit for the kid from Covington Catholic.

A Battle of Britain hero died hours after celebrating his 100th birthday, leaving just five surviving members of 'The Few' who fought in the aerial conflict, his biographer revealed. Flight Lieutenant Archie McInnes finished his pilot training aged 21, was commissioned the next day and went on to fly Hurricanes while fighting for control of the skies over southern England in the Second World War. The World War Two veteran was also on board HMS Victorious as part of the team hunting the German battleship Bismarck, and lost his left arm when he was shot down by a Messerschmitt during the North African campaign in October 1941.

Nasa's planet spotting telescope has uncovered another three planets, which scientists say include the first nearby super-Earth spotted by TESS that could be habitable. The planet, called GJ 357 d, orbits a star around 31 light years away in the so-called habitable zone, an area far enough from its star to not be too hot but close enough to not be too cold. In this region, it is possible for liquid water to exist on the surface of a planet if it is rocky, although further research is needed to work out whether GJ 357 d's atmosphere is dense and warm enough to host liquid water.

California Sen. Kamala Harris had launched a front-running bid for president.

There is no debate on race in this campaign. In order for there to be a "debate," there must be give and take on both sides -- point, counterpoint, argument, counterargument. But when Democrats talk about race, it's only to call their political opponent a racist. There is nothing you or any white person can ever say that will be accepted as a legitimate argument. In fact, whatever premise you base your argument on will be rejected out of hand and you will be branded a racist.It's not the lecturing, the hectoring, the constant barrage of exaggerations and untruths.

After days of President Donald Trump publicly quarreling with congressman Elijah Cummings and his home city of Baltimore, a 'Trump 2020' banner was unfurled at Thursday's Baltimore Orioles game, resulting in the ejection of four fans who were in violation of stadium policy.

He then passed those documents to a friend, Columbia University Law Professor Daniel Richman, who gave them to The New York Times. Comey admitted to that arrangement during congressional testimony.

Speaking of the “stigma” which is “handed down from generation to generation”, Prince Harry said that “unconscious bias” is “something which so many people don’t understand”.

Earlier this year, Gillette embarked on a bold new advertising campaign. For decades, the company had celebrated masculinity, telling us that being a man is good. But what this new campaign presupposes is: Maybe it isn't? [Video] OUT: The Best a Man Can Get IN: Aren't Men Just the Worst? It's a bold idea, expressly shaming the very market for your product. As I noted at the time: Gillette has learned that in [current year], it's not enough for a company to make a product that people want. It's not enough to make them feel inadequate about themselves, and then sell them the supposed cure for that inadequacy. Consumers,

After going back and forth and back and forth about whether she would eliminate private insurance and shove every American into Medicare, Kamala Harris thinks she’s found a solution. Shove everyone into Medicare, but do it a little more slowly and pretend that private insurers will still be involved. No doubt the Democratic California senator is reading the same polls as everyone else. Namely, that the public thinks it likes “Medicare for All” until it learns what it means. Then support evaporates. But Harris still wants to appeal to the Democrats’ increasingly socialist base. So, voilà. She’s proposing to let people choose between regular Medicare and Medicare Advantage,
