FBI wouldn’t discuss Hunter Biden probe after convincing Facebook to suppress laptop stories

Hunter Biden’s name was raised in an FBI meeting with Facebook before the 2020 election, according to sworn testimony by Elvis Chan, an FBI agent accused of “colluding” with social media companies to suppress The Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story. During a weekly election security meeting in October 2020, days after Big Tech censored The Post’s story, a Facebook representative asked the chief of the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force, Laura Dehmlow: “What can you share about the Hunter Biden case?”, Chan said Tuesday in a deposition for a lawsuit against the Biden administration by Republican attorneys general of Missouri and...

NFL power rankings for Week 14: Bengals rising with new team on top

Any predictions of a Super Bowl 47 rematch took a big hit last weekend. The San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens both lost their starting quarterbacks. Make that two season-ending injuries at quarterback in the top-heavy NFC for the 49ers, as free-agent-to-be Jimmy Garoppolo joins Trey Lance on the bench. The news is potentially better for the Ravens, who consider Lamar Jackson’s availability “week to week” with a sprained knee. The Ravens’ 2021 season fell apart in December when Jackson missed five starts. The AFC — and the North Division’s hard-charging Bengals — doesn’t offer much margin for error again. Here are...

Tainted fuel could have caused choppers to crash in NYC

More than 10 of the helicopters that carry tourists and executives around the Big Apple were gassed up with fuel containing metal particles that could have caused them to fall from the sky, The Post has learned. A complaint about the potentially disastrous situation was filed with the Federal Aviation Administration by HeliNY, which runs sightseeing tours and charter flights out of the Downtown Manhattan Heliport at Pier 6 in the Financial District. All helicopter operators in and around the city had “to ground their fleets while fuel lines in every machine could be tested,” HeliNY operations director Oyvind Vataker wrote in the...

Belle Meade Kroger to relocate to nearby building

A relocation of the Kroger at Belle Meade to a nearby building last home to a Harris Teeter grocery store is being prepared. Located at 4560 Harding Pike, the Kroger at Belle Meade opened in 1978, with the building from which it operates and an accompanying structure, Belle Meade Plaza Shopping Center, seemingly under contract to be sold as the Post reported in April (read here).

Jets can send loud message with another Bills takedown

Robert Saleh is an NFL coach who does a little standup comedy on the side. When the subject turns to his Jets quarterbacks, Saleh might as well be doing an old-school bit in the Catskills, or football’s version of the classic “Who’s on first?” routine by Abbott and Costello.  That would be Lou Costello, the 1940s funnyman from Paterson, N.J., not Brian Costello, the less amusing Post beat writer from Jefferson, N.J., who asked Saleh if Mike White could wreck his grand plan of returning Zach Wilson to the field. The coach laughed Monday and asked the writer if he was...

Letters to the Editor — Dec. 6, 2022

The Issue: Elon Musk’s release of info pertaining to Twitter’s blocking of The Post’s Hunter Biden story. We are rightly told that the assault on the Capitol on Jan. 6 was a threat to our democracy (“Fed lies,” Dec. 5). The concerted censorship of The Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop was an even greater assault. Not only by social media executives, but by mainstream media like The New York Times, Washington Post and major news networks. The control by our corporate-run media over what stories they want to tell us and which they want to suppress should bring chills to our spines. Twitter CEO...

Why it matters: Microsoft's $69 billion attempt to acquire Activision Blizzard King faces headwinds from regulators in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe. A US lawsuit could slow down the buy, even if Microsoft prevails. As the UK and Europe ramp up the pressure, signs indicate the US might endorse the deal, possibly with concessions.

Former Atlantic Records talent scout says bosses sexually assaulted her: suit

A former Atlantic Records talent scout filed suit Monday, claiming the music label fostered a toxic environment that enabled her bosses to allegedly sexually harass and assault her decades ago. Dorothy Carvello’s Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit also names parent company Warner Music Group and three former executives at Atlantic she claims assaulted her on multiple occasions when she worked there in the late 1980s. “I’m seeking justice and by me coming forward I think it will help clean up the music business,” Carvello, 60, told The Post during an interview on Sunday. Carvello, the first female A&R talent scout for Atlantic, according to...

Cougars prowl for Gen-Z men in Hulu dating show ‘Back in the Groove’

This vacation destination is cougar town.  On the new Hulu dating series “Back in the Groove,” (releasing new episodes Dec. 5 through Dec. 8), three 40something women date men half their age. The series is, appropriately enough, hosted by Taye Diggs, who played a younger man dating Angela Bassett in the big-screen flick “How Stella Got Her Groove Back.”  “I did have a few anxieties,” Atlanta-based beauty entrepreneur, Sparkle Hyche, 43, told The Post about her time on the show. “I thought maybe they’d be immature. Or, I thought some guys might be looking for sugar mommas,” she said. “But a lot of...

Girls’ basketball Top 20: Sidwell Friends, St. John’s start in top spots

Most teams that lose the All-Met Player of the Year would expect to take a step back, but most teams aren’t Sidwell Friends. With Kiki Rice at UCLA but the four other starters returning for Coach Tamika Dudley, the Quakers — who went wire-to-wire as The Post’s top team in 2021-22 — return at the No. 1 spot in the year’s first rankings and are widely considered the top team in the country.

Senate same-sex marriage vote still a step on long road toward full justice

This commentary originally appeared in the Pennsylvania Capital-Star. It’s difficult to overstate the importance of last week’s U.S. Senate vote codifying protections for same-sex and interracial marriage as both a triumph of bipartisanship and fundamental decency. It’s also difficult to overstate, sadly, how much further we have to go to ensure full equality for LGBTQ […] The post Senate same-sex marriage vote still a step on long road toward full justice appeared first on Colorado Newsline.
