An impending merger between Discovery and Warner Media, which owns CNN among many other media properties, could be a moment that upends the news industry.

The Nov. 7 elections brought sweeping gains and victories for Democrats nationwide, especially in battleground states like Virginia and Ohio. While Republicans did earn some victories, their strict positions on abortion cost them at the polls. Straight Arrow News contributor Newt Gingrich observes that Democrats won most in the states where they focused on pro-choice
Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. initially launched his presidential bid as a Democrat, setting up a potential rivalry with President Joe Biden. If he manages to secure a spot on the presidential ballot as a third-party candidate, both Republicans and Democrats are worried that RFK Jr. could siphon votes from their own candidates. Straight
