Fox News Host Hits Trump for Attacking Chris Wallace: You're ‘Not Entitled to Praise'
Fox NewsFox News aired a rare bit of "Common Sense" on Monday afternoon when host Neil Cavuto ended his show with a strong defense of his colleague Chris Wallace, who earned the wrath of President Trump for daring to challenge House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA).Trump tweeted on Sunday that Scalise "blew the nasty & obnoxious Chris Wallace (will never be his father, Mike!) away on Chris's lowest rated (unless I'm on) morning show," adding, "This kind of dumb and unfair interview would never have happened in the @FoxNews past." Zooming out, Cavuto asked his viewers, "What makes something ‘fake news?'" before explaining that the president "doesn't distinguish" between false reporting and journalism that reflects poorly on him. "Now we can debate whether any crime was committed here," Cavuto said, "but Chris challenged Scalise concluding the witnesses that testified last week didn't see a crime committed here. That was his view of what they said, but that was not what they said." He went on to say it "was a pity" Trump didn't keep watching Fox News Sunday to see Wallace "just as aggressively going after" Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT). Speaking directly to Trump, Cavuto said, "Now while it's understandable not to like what you hear, Mr. President, it is not understandable to tune out what you would very much like to hear." He futilely urged Trump to watch "the things you might like and, yes, the things you might not like." While Trump is "entitled" to his opinion, Cavuto said

U.S. to change migration rules in a bid to send asylum seekers elsewhere
The Trump administration is set to harden the rules this week on those allowed to seek asylum in the United States, as it attempts to stem a wave of migration on its southern border with Mexico. In a fast-track regulation set to publish in the Federal Register on Tuesday, the administration has created a framework that will allow asylum seekers to be sent to other nations that have negotiated bilateral agreements to accept them. Previously, officials in the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump have argued that migrants with a valid need for asylum should seek protection in the first 'safe' country where they have the chance to apply, since many migrants travel through multiple countries on their way to the U.S. border.

‘I Love You, Sir': Convicted War Criminal Thanks Trump for Pardon on ‘Fox & Friends'
Days after receiving a full pardon from President Donald Trump for multiple convictions of murdering unarmed civilians in Afghanistan, 1st Lt. Clint Lorance appeared on Trump's favorite morning program on Monday to tell the president that he loved him for absolving him of war crimes.Reportedly overruling top military leaders, the president issued pardons on Friday for Lorance, who was sentenced to 19 years in prison in 2013 for ordering his soldiers to fire upon three Afghan men, and Army Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn, who faced murder charges for killing an unarmed Afghan citizen he thought was a bomb maker.The president also reversed a demotion for Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher, who was recently found not-guilty of murdering a teen ISIS fighter.During his Monday morning appearance on Fox & Friends alongside co-host Pete Hegseth, an Iraq War veteran who has privately lobbied Trump to pardon accused and convicted war criminals, Lorance took aim at high-ranking military officers for questioning the pardons."I think folks that start putting stars on their collar, anybody that's got to be confirmed by the Senate for a promotion, they are no longer a soldier," Lorance exclaimed. "They are a politician. And so I think they lose some of their values. And they certainly lose a lot of their respect from their subordinates when they do what they did to me, which was, you know, throw me under the bus."Co-host Ainsley Earhardt, meanwhile, gleefully noted that Trump'

The New York Times report on China's mass detention of Muslims seems to have broken through Beijing's internet firewall
The Great Firewall may have been breached.Beijing doubled down Monday after The New York Times published a report on over 400 leaked documents that provided a look into China's mass detention of Muslims in the Xinjiang region, though the government didn't dispute the authenticity of the documents."It is precisely because of a series of preventative counterterrorism and de-extremism measures taken in a timely manner that Xinjiang, which had been deeply plagued by terrorism, has not had a violent terrorist incident for three years," said Geng Shuang, a spokesman for China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Geng added that the Times took things out of context in an attempt to "smear and discredit China's antiterrorism and de-extremism capabilities."But aside from Geng's comments, the Times reports that Chinese state media said little else about the issue, which is not surprising given the sensitive nature of the issue. But there were signs that at least some aspects of the leak snuck past Beijing's internet firewall, which blocks access to the Times. One user on Chinese social media platform Weibo reportedly posted about Wang Yongzhi, an official cited in the report who initially helped implement China's harsh measure, but eventually ordered the release of more than 7,000 detention camp inmates before he was arrested. "History will not forget this person and this page of paper," the Weibo user wrote, indicating that the documents might have made their way through.
