    Mar 12, 2024

    When Robert K. Hur testifies to Congress on Tuesday about his investigation of President Biden's handling of classified documents, he is expected to defend a special counsel process created to shield fraught cases from political interference. But Hur's testimony will also highlight how Attorney General Merrick Garland's use of special counsels to handle the most politically sensitive cases has calcified tensions between the White House and the Justice Department.

  • Minnesotans could be spending thousands each year on 'junk fees.' Some lawmakers want to ban them.

    Mar 12, 2024

    These hidden fees pop up at the end of a transaction, right at the moment a consumer is about to purchase a product. "Think about the last time you went out for dinner, or ordered online and saw a convenience fee, a service fee, a wellness fee that you weren't quite sure what that was for," said Rep. Emma Greenman, DFL-Minneapolis. She's carrying a bill this year to rein in the proliferation of businesses adding so-called hidden "junk fees" at the end of purchases, which have driven up the...

  • A long history of Indigenous film snubs

    Mar 12, 2024

    How important are Indigenous stories to Hollywood?

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences bypassed the acclaimed Lily Gladstone, Siksikaitsitapii and Nimíipuu, in the Best Actress category, though Gladstone won awards from the Golden Globes and...
