I just want to be clear that in the moral cosmology of Herschel Walker and Republicans the accusation is that he paid to have his child murdered.

A second term for Jair Bolsonaro, who spreads misinformation and undermines trust in democracy, would be bad for Brazil and the world. Only Lula can prevent it. Claiming the centre ground is the best way to do so

The world is watching Iranians young and old confront the Islamic regime amid fears of a worsening crackdown. It's day 18 of unprecedented protests that erupted after the death in police custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. @JomanaCNN  spoke to one of the student protesters.

Speaker Pelosi: "We have a shortage of workers in our country... In Florida, some of the farmers & the growers [are] saying 'why are you shipping these immigrants up North? We need them to pick the crops down here.'"
