"A fake FBI raid staged Monday by a notorious right-wing activist and conspiracist turned into an embarrassment for The Washington Post, which briefly reported the faux-event as if it were the real deal."

This time, Wohl recruited actors to pose as FBI agents, telling them they would be participating in a scene for a 'TV pilot,' one of the actors involved told the Daily Beast. The actors donned FBI-style windbreakers and pretended they were raiding a house during e...

Ridership, which was already in steady decline even before the COVID-19 panic and lockdowns, has cratered, reducing revenue from fares. The economic slowdown has meant lower sales...
