FBI Director Christopher Wray debunked right-wing conspiracy theories when he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee today that Trump supporters, including many white supremacists, were the ones who attacked the Capitol on January 6. So Fox News decided to cover something else.
FBI Director Christopher Wray, testifying before a Senate panel about the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, said Tuesday that "quite a number" of those arrested so far had militia or white supremacist connections and that "we have not to date seen any evidence of anarchist violence or people subscribing to antifa" involved in the assault.
Wray also told the Senate Judiciary Committee "we have not seen evidence" that fake Trump supporters were involved, as some on the right have alleged.

As the Dr. Seuss issue (as per Wikipedia) is with the illustrations not the text, I don’t understand why the publishers didn’t decide to delete the images. Even that would not be acceptable to me, however, as it really does amount to whitewashing the past. Kids need to know about that bad stuff in order to understand why it’s no longer “cool” to say certain things.
As a child I learned and loved a catchy little tune with words that were both racist and totally inaccurate. Nowadays, I can see how that very same tune might be used as the starting point for awareness-building both on racism and the importance of facts.
