We'd never hear the end of it, today media are freaking out about an incorrect [ President ] Ivanka Trump tweet saying ABC never apologized for Brian Ross's incompetent reporting that tanked the stock market, Ivanka Trump said. They aren't covering Samantha Bee at all. They would rather protect a discredited journalist than address the insane and hateful comments that come from one of their favorite TV people.ABC set the media-approved standard this week for misbehavior. When someone does something this disgusting, their show is canceled.

    With the NWSLs schedule thrown into disarray because of the pandemic, players have looked to Europe and especially England, Jess Fishlock said. These teams are getting players that they arguably might not have gotten if we were still playing the NWSL right now, Jess Fishlock said, referring to the U.S. leagues normal April-to-October schedule. Tottenham picked up two Orlando Pride players Australian Alanna Kennedy and Canadian Shelina Zadorsky on loans. Even before the pandemic, The WSL was attracting top talent. Kerr waved goodbye to the NWSL and Australias November-to-February W-League when Alanna Kennedy signed with Chelsea for reportedly more than $ 400,000 per season. Other Aussies came, as well, like Caitlin Foord at Arsenal. Theres a lot of us over here.
