Reporter Martin Bashir is extremely sick with COVID-19. Bashir currently works as a religion editor for BBC News. He joined the network following stints at ABC and MSNBC.

Bashir resigned at MSNBC in 2013 after he referred to former U.S. vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin as a “world-class idiot” suggesting on-air that someone might defecate in her mouth.

“We are sorry to say that Martin is seriously unwell with Covid-19 related complications,” the Network said. “Everyone at the BBC is wishing him a full recovery. We’d ask that his privacy, and that of his family, is respected at this time.” 

He joined BBC News in 2016 after hosting anchoring ABC’s Nightline show. In 1995 he got Princess Dianna to admit to an affair during an explosive interview.  

He also made the 2003 ITV/ABC documentary Living with Michael Jackson, in which Martin Bashir interviewed Michael Jackson over a span of eight months, from May 2002 to January 2003, about different aspects of his life.

Laura Ingraham Admits President Trump Lost the 2020 Election

“In what was perhaps the most consequential tweet sent since election day, President Trump gave the go-ahead for the transition,” Ingraham said. “And as unpleasant and disappointing as these past three weeks have been to so many of us, as much as we wish things were different, this is where things stand tonight.”

Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham repeatedly claimed to the 2020 election was rigged.

However, as days go by, there’s no substantial evidence to their claim, which is why Ingraham is coming to terms with the reality that President Trump lost the election to Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden on her show “The Ingraham Angle.”

“In what was perhaps the most consequential tweet sent since election day, President Trump gave the go-ahead for the transition,” Ingraham said. “And as unpleasant and disappointing as these past three weeks have been to so many of us, as much as we wish things were different, this is where things stand tonight.”

“Now, legal challenges continue in a number of states. Serious questions about vote counting, poll watcher access are outstanding. But unless the legal situation changes in a dramatic and frankly unlikely manner, Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20th.”

Former military veteran and current host of Fox & Friends Weekend, Pete Hegseth, shared his thoughts about his journey to host a national television show, the problem with higher education, and how social media prevents independent thinking, in a recent conversation with Bobby Burack of Outkick.

Hegseth wrote a book called Modern Warriors which is due to be released on Tuesday. “I think readers across the spectrum will enjoy it as it reminds them why America is such a special country,” Hegseth said. “I’m not really asking questions – I’m facilitating the discussion. What’s cool about these guys is that they get really comfortable.”  

Hegseth, once a member of the Army National Guard, was in the running to head the United States Department of Veteran Affairs before he became engulfed in an adultery controversy. He explains that his military experience was a catalyst for his television career.  

“One day they asked, hey have you thought about asking questions instead of answering them?” Shortly after that conversation, the network gave him a chance to host Fox and Friends. “I hadn’t done professional television in that role before. But if you’ve been shot at, reading a teleprompter and asking a couple of questions is not the most stressful thing you’ve ever done in your life.”  

Asked about his Ivy League education, Hegseth said that “he’s sending his degree back to Harvard and telling them that they can keep it. The challenge is getting these parents to wake up and stop sending their kids back to these schools.”
