Police Release Underwater Footage as Search for Naya Rivera Continues

The search for Naya Rivera continues.

On Wednesday, July 8, the Ventura, Calif. authorities confirmed the Glee actress was missing after her 4-year-old son was found alone on the boat in the middle of Lake Piru. Rivera is presumed dead in what’s being described by law enforcement as a possible drowning accident.

Three days after the news broke, investigators released footage online to show the “many resources” being used to find the actress. On Friday, July 10, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office uploaded two videos to its Twitter account.

“Here’s the ROV used by @TulareSheriff in the search for Naya Rivera at Lake Piru today. This is one of many resources being used, along with side scan sonar, dogs, and divers,” the police department’s wrote, which captured footage of police deploying a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) 30 feet from the lake’s surface.

Click here to read the full article.

Top executives at Fox News Media condemned remarks made in an online forum by Blake Neff, a now-resigned member of the staff of primetime show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” and said the network parted ways with him as soon as it learned of his behavior. Carlson is expected to address the matter on Monday during his program.

“We want to make abundantly clear that Fox News Media strongly condemns this horrific racist, misogynistic and homophobic behavior,” said Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and President Jay Wallace in a memo to staffers Saturday. “Neff’s abhorrent conduct on this forum was never divulged to the show or the network until Friday, at which point we swiftly accepted his resignation. Make no mistake, actions such as his cannot and will not be tolerated at any time in any part of our work force.”

One of Fox host Tucker Carlson’s top writers has resigned after a CNN investigation found he was posting racist and sexist comments online under a pseudonym.

Under the name “CharlesXII”, Blake Neff regularly posted offensive language on an online forum called AutoAdmit.

In June, for example, Neff wrote, “Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down.” Neff also harassed a woman on the forum, posting information about her personal life and encouraging other users to post private information about her.

In an internal memo sent to staff, Fox News confirmed Neff is no longer with the broadcaster. “We want to make abundantly clear that Fox News Media strongly condemns this horrific racist, misogynistic and homophobic behavior,” read the memo. “Neff’s abhorrent conduct on this forum was never divulged to the show or the network until Friday, at

Netflix drops ‘Unsolved Mysteries’ evidence on Reddit to help internet sleuths solve cases

Netflix’s recent revival of the beloved Unsolved Mysteries series is a hit, with the show appearing on the site’s Top 10 Most Watched list since premiering. While a lot has changed in the reboot itself, the biggest change is arguably how the show now exists in a world with Reddit sleuths.

Netflix even directly addressed those sleuths in a Reddit post on July 7. The post dropped an entire Google Drive of evidence organized by each episode’s case, containing not only the evidence that aired but also new speculation that didn’t make the cut.

While armchair internet detectives are certainly a double-edged and potentially harmful sword, this behavior isn’t new for Unsolved Mysteries. The show was always known for tapping fans to help solve cases, and in the past tips and leads from viewers actually

Trump threatens to pull tax exemption for schools, colleges

In his push to get schools and colleges to reopen this fall, President Donald Trump is again taking aim at their finances, this time threatening their tax-exempt status.

Trump said on Twitter on Friday he was ordering the Treasury Department to re-examine the tax-exempt status of schools that he says provide “radical indoctrination” instead of education.

“Too many Universities and School Systems are about Radical Left Indoctrination, not Education,” he tweeted. “Therefore, I am telling the Treasury Department to re-examine their Tax-Exempt Status and/or Funding, which will be taken away if this Propaganda or Act Against Public Policy continues. Our children must be Educated, not Indoctrinated!”

The Republican president did not explain what prompted the remark or which schools would be reviewed. But the threat is just one more that Trump has issued against schools as he ratchets up pressure to get them to open this fall. Twice this week
