Michael Goodwin: America is being scandalized by four enormous events – Trump is just one of them | Fox News

Not so long ago, editors and reporters dreaded the dog days of August because news took a vacation. Now the news never stops.

The first scandalizing event is Donald Trump — his candidacy, his election and his presidency. And, on some days to some people, his existence.

Next is the conduct of the mainstream media, which has abandoned all standards of fairness and continues to embarrass itself with overt bias against the president.

Another scandalizing event is the behavior of some federal agencies. The Justice Department, the FBI and the CIA took liberties that were morally offensive, and possibly illegal,

The fourth scandalizing event is the reaction of Democrats to Trump.

Led by Hillary Clinton, the party has thrashed about like wounded animals caught in a steel trap. The grief does not seem limited to three, five, seven or 10 stages. It’s endless.

California to become first state eliminating bail for suspects awaiting trial

Suspects awaiting trial in California will now have their bail eliminated, according to a bill signed by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday.

Suspects looking at serious, violent felonies won’t be eligible for release prior to trial but the majority of suspects arrested for nonviolent misdemeanors will be let go within 12 hours of being booked, according to the legislation.

The bill gives officials 24 hours to determine whether other suspects should be released before trial. That time can be extended by 12 hours if necessary.

“Today, California reforms its bail system so that rich and poor alike are treated fairly,” Brown said in a statement, according to The Sacramento Bee.

Brown’s signature gives the state’s Judicial Council, the policy-making body for California’s courts, broad authority to reshape pretrial detention policies.

University Challenge to pose ‘gender neutral questions’ – BBC News

The questions on University Challenge should be posed in a ‘gender neutral’ way, says the show’s producer.

Female contestants have repeatedly spoken of online abuse and objectification after their appearances. All-male teams and all-male finals – such as last year’s contest between Balliol College Oxford and Wolfson College Cambridge – have been criticised by the likes of historian and broadcaster Mary Beard.

Donald Trump is going to be a big winner tonight – CNNPolitics

Washington (CNN)For all of Donald Trump’s struggles in his first 19 months as President, there’s one thing he’s proven particularly adept at: Picking winners in contested GOP primaries.

That run of winners is likely to continue on Tuesday night when voters go to the polls in Arizona and Florida.
The most obvious example of Trump’s power within the party is in the Florida governor’s race, where, late last year, he tweeted favorably about the candidacy of Rep. Ron DeSantis, who was seen as a heavy underdog to state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the primary.
