The Harvard Crimson Is Slammed for Doing Their Job. A controversy has erupted at Harvard after student reporters from The Crimson had the audacity to ask US Immigration and Customs Enforcement for a statement about an on-campus protest the agency. A student-led immigration advocacy group organized the "Act on a Dream" event to call for the abolition of ICE and became irate when the newspaper reached out to the government agency to get their reaction to the protest. They have now started a petition demanding The Crimson not contact ICE for comment in its future reporting. Do you have any words of wisdom for the student protesters?

Who Is Allowed to Use the Word "Lynching?" President Trump used the word "lynching" to describe the democratic congress's quest to impeach him setting off a firestorm of criticism with many calling his use of the word disgraceful. The same term was used by democrat members of congress to describe the Clinton impeachment proceedings back in 1998 and no one batted an eyelash. One of those was former Vice-President Joe Biden who referred to President Clinton's impeachment as a “partisan lynching” yet thought it was appropriate to tweet that the president’s use of the word was “despicable.” Do you sense some hypocrisy here?
