For a few seconds, Fox News contradicted itself when it presented two versions of what President Obama has done to combat ISIS. Nothing and something.

On Monday, America’s Newsroom featured Fox contributor Pete Hegseth and during the segment, presented text that perfectly represents how Fox News reports the news. The conservative network was…

“[M]any people are looking for an ear that will listen. They do not find it among Christians, because these Christians are talking where they should be listening.

Urban Outfitters Offers ‘Vintage’ Faux Blood-Stained Kent State Sweatshirt | TPM
Popular clothing retailer Urban Outfitters has taken heat for selling a faux blood-stained, “vintage” sweatshirt evoking the Kent State University shootings of 1970.


The mocked-up sweatshirt appeared on the retailer’s website Sunday evening. It appeared to be a reference to the shooting of college students by the Ohio National Guard in May 1970, complete with splotches of fake blood. The company’s website never described it as a reference to the shooting, however.
The product immediately invited backlash on social media.
By Monday morning, UrbanOutfitters.com listed the item as “sold out,” and any attempt to visit the product page displayed a notification without an image of the sweatshirt.
On Monday morning Urban Outfitters responded with an apology, addressing the sweartshirt’s bloody apperance.
"The red stains are discoloration from the original shade of the shirt and the holes are from natural wear and fray,” the statement read.
