WASHINGTON — Comic Michelle Wolf’s raunchy anti-Trump routine at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner — with barbs aimed particularly at Press Secretary Sarah Sanders — and a horrible joke about abortion — came on the same Saturday night President Trump was attacking the press, again, at a rally in Michigan. Trump skipped this dinner for the second year in a row, an annual black-tie event notable in this Trump era for a lack of A-list Hollywood celebrities. ANALYSIS Nonetheless, the cavernous ballroom at the Washington Hilton was packed. A “First Amendment” lapel pin was at each table setting. Press Secretary Sanders was at the head table, representing the Trump administration. Wolf’s controversial performance raised debates about: • Whether Wolf, formerly with the Daily Show, coming out with her new Netflix show, “The Break with Michelle Wolf” – crossed a line. • Whether there are lines … [Read more...] about White House Correspondents’ dinner 2018: Comedy crossing the line?

close Video Ohio teen dies after being crushed by minivan seat Teenager Kyle Plush called Cincinnati 9-1-1 twice from inside the van before his death; Matt Finn pieces this story together from Chicago. The grieving family of an Ohio teen who was crushed to death in a minivan last week stormed out of a meeting with Cincinnati leaders Tuesday, with the boy's uncle scolding a councilmember and angrily shouting the man had "crossed the line." Kyle Plush's family sat in the front row for five hours as city leaders, including law enforcement officials, detailed issues with the 911 center while hearing testimony from current and former employees, according to FOX19. But it was at the end of the meeting, when Councilman Wendell Young attempted to summarize the hours-long discussion as "everything that could possibly go wrong went wrong," that members of the Plush family erupted.

But he did say he respects President Bush for providing a period of silence as this new team formulates policy on tough topics like Guantanamo Bay.These barbs sound more like the rhetoric of radio talk show hosts than elder statesman.We should never shy away from insightful criticism. And in the white hot spotlight of the presidency a fair amount of back seat driving simply comes with the territory.But it's fair to give the new kids on the block a chance to get their learner's permits first.That's a page from my notebook.Eric Holder interview: … [Read more...] about Katie Couric’s Notebook: Cheney Crossing The Line?
Shane Sutton has told a BBC documentary to be screened on Sunday night that getting a Therapeutic Use Exemption was a legitimate means for an athlete to “find a gain” if he or she felt five per cent below their best. Speaking to the makers of Britain’s Cycling Superheroes: The Price of Success? Sutton, the former British Cycling performance director and Team Sky coach, insists Team Sky never “crossed the line”. However, the Australian says that it was common practice a few years ago for athletes to use TUEs to “find gains” if they had a minor niggle or injury which permitted them to apply for one. "If you have an athlete who is 95 per cent ready and that little five per cent niggle or injury that is troubling him . . . if you can get that TUE to get him to 100 per cent, yeah of course you would in them days,” Sutton says. “The business you are in is to give you the edge on your opponent. And ultimately, at … [Read more...] about British cyclists used TUEs to ‘find a gain’ on rivals – but did not cross the line, says former coach Shane Sutton
