Students at one New York University school asked for a reimbursement. The dean said no with a dance video, as one does

A petition to get Columbia - one of America's most expensive universities - to do a partial refund has gained 7,000+ signatures

Many schools have agreed to pro-rated reimbursements of room and board costs, but not tuition

Stanford and UC Berkeley students also asked for a partial refund

Please point us to any of the US mass shootings where you have published photos of the dead

I wrote a little thing in London’s City A.M. newspaper today. Do you agree?

With the Roselyn Akombe resignation from IEBC, the chances of a credible fresh election taking place just went from minimal to unlikely

I disagree with Miguna Miguna on a lot and he’s still not welcome on my show but I don’t support his illegal detention. If you support the government infringing on one citizen’s rights, do you think it will respect yours? #FreeMigunaMigunaNow
