Feds Nab Top FEMA Admin. in Massive Puerto Rico, Hurricane Maria Corruption Scam
CORRECTION, Sep. 16, 2019: The Western Journal has removed "Trump Was Right" from this article's headline because, after further review, we decided that it overstated the relationship between the president's previous claims of Puerto Rican corruption and the published findings of this investigation, which speak less about corruption among Puerto Rican officials than about corruption within FEMA, which is a federal agency under the Department of Homeland Security.

Correction: Aug. 22, 2019
An earlier version of this article misstated the length of time that Western Journal writers have to file a story. It is typically one to two hours, and in some cases as little as 30 minutes; it is not typically 30 minutes. The article also erroneously stated that Western Journal hired experienced copy editors in 2018; it hired experienced editors in prior years, not in 2018. And an earlier version misstated Patrick Brown’s height; he is 6-foot-6, not 6-foot-3.

CNN’s Don Lemon Being Sued over Alleged Sex Assault Involving a Drink, Shorts and a Mustache
UPDATE, Aug. 13, 2019:Paragraph 1 of the lawsuit filed against Don Lemon states: On air and through social media platforms, Don Lemon (hereinafter “Mr. Lemon” or “Defendant”), an American journalist, and Emmy Award winning news anchor for Cable News Network (CNN), who among other things, purports to be an staunch advocate for the “Me Too” movement, a social movement meant to bring awareness and give a voice to victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment. When the cameras are turned off, however, Mr. Lemon’s actions are in stark and disturbing contrast to the public persona he attempts to convey. Such was the case in July of 2018, when Mr. Lemon, unprovoked, physically and verbally attacked Plaintiff in a public bar displaying his true nature. The suit draws a "stark and disturbing contrast" between his efforts on behalf of victims of "sexual assault and sexual harassment" and Lemon's alleged behavior -- not between victims of "assault" and his alleged behavior. It's clear that the plaintiff and his attorneys consider Lemon's actions to be sexual in nature. However, because the suit does not mention "sexual assault" specifically, we have edited the commentary to remove the one use of that phrase that originally appeared so as to not cause any confusion regarding the actual violation claimed.
