A White House lawyer reportedly tried to get The Wall Street Journal to scoop Hunter Biden's emails

The Wall Street Journal published a short article Thursday night on Hunter Biden's business dealings that concluded: "Corporate records reviewed by The Wall Street Journal show no role for Joe Biden." The same night, the Journal published an opinion piece that asserted the Democratic presidential nominee had been aware of and/or involved in his son's business endeavors, about 24 hours after Breitbart News published a statement from a former Hunter Biden business partner, Tony Bobulinksi....

‘It’s a heartbreak ending’: Dodgers’ Will Smith faces the music after historic loss

Dave Roberts has a habit. When one of his relief pitchers has a poor outing, the Dodgers’ manager likes to use the pitcher again in the next day’s game, baseball’s version of the concept of atonement. This has been Roberts’ habit in the regular season, and it’s carried over to the 2020 World Series. One day after Dodgers catcher Will Smith became an infamous figure in a historic game-ending sequence, he did not get a chance to redeem himself on the field. Smith was the Dodgers’ designated hitter...

Whicker: Dodgers derailed by a gust of craziness in an ‘un-perfect storm’

Because baseball turned into pinball, we’re thinking more about Mookie Wilson than Mookie Betts. Because Chris Taylor took a peek at the action and looked away from the baseball, Clayton Kershaw is pitching to tilt a world Series on Sunday, not to win it. Because Will Smith decided to maneuver a baseball before he actually caught it, Kenley Jansen remains associated with bumps in the night instead of strike-three handshakes. None of that fully explains the runaway train of a Game 4 on Saturday t...

Dodgers blow lead after lead, lose roller-coaster ride in Game 4

ARLINGTON, Texas — Seven Flags Over Texas is located just down the road from Globe Life Field. It sits mostly empty these days, its rides still with the park all but shut down by the coronavirus pandemic. It could have been going full bore. The Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays would still have provided the best thrill ride in town Saturday night. Every pitching choice Dave Roberts made in Game 4 turned out as wrong as social media always thinks they do. And yet, the Dodgers took a one-run lead into th...

Forget the ‘Trump’ or ‘Biden’ t-shirt, voters are told on opening day – that’s called electioneering

Leo Serna, donning a “Trump 2020” facemask and Trump t-shirt, was briefly turned away from the vote center at the Norwalk government complex as in-person began in Los Angeles County on Saturday, Oct. 24. Q&A: Here’s what you need to know about in-person voting in California Whether he knew it or not, election officials consider that electioneering. Polling place rules across Los Angeles County prohibit partisan campaign clothing. The Norwalk resident took it all in stride. Voters line up for ...

Alexander: Austin Barnes is more than just a personal catcher

The Fox broadcast guys were fumbling with this one. Austin Barnes, heretofore Clayton Kershaw’s personal catcher and now appearing to add Walker Buehler’s starts to his resumé, had just followed a near-perfect safety squeeze bunt in the fourth inning with a booming 425-foot home run into the Tampa Bay bullpen in the sixth, for the Dodgers’ sixth run in their 6-2 Game 3 victory on Friday night. At first, John Smoltz suggested – guessed? – that it might have been the first time it ever happened in...

Dodgers’ unpredictable bullpen order is by design

The Dodgers were leading the Tampa Bay Rays 8-1 in the seventh inning when Dylan Floro entered Game 1 of the World Series. He only retired one of the three batters he faced, then gave the ball to left-hander Victor Gonzalez, who allowed both inherited runners to score. In Game 2, the Dodgers were trailing 1-0 when Floro relieved Tony Gonsolin in the second inning. This time, Floro was tasked with retiring a different trio than he saw the day before: Willy Adames, Kevin Kiermaier and Mike Zunino....

Voting by mail? Most Californians have preferred it over in-person voting for years

In the dramatic midterm elections of 2018, when the fate of the House and Senate hung in the balance and a new governor was about to be enthroned, two of every three votes tallied in California were cast via mail-in ballots rather than by in-person voting —even in the absence of a deadly pandemic. By-mail voting has long played a dominant role in Golden State democracy, so the ballot-in-every-mailbox experiment currently underway is not so much revolution as evolution. But understanding the part...

Apple's iPhone 12 is here, but 5G still needs to catch up

Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled the 5G iPhone 12 earlier this week. Apple Apple's iPhone 12, which launches on Friday, marks the company's first smartphones to come with 5G. While it's an important step for the iPhone, 5G support alone isn't enough of a reason to upgrade. The fastest 5G networks operate at a short range and are only found in very limited areas around the US. But bringing 5G to the iPhone 12 ensures that the phone will remain relevant in the future as 5G networks develop over t...

Dodgers’ Alex Wood not drawn into 2017 revisionist history

ARLINGTON, Texas — It is one of many alternate endings that have been suggested for the 2017 World Series (and there are many). The Dodgers should have started Alex Wood in Game 7, the revisionists say. He was the Dodgers’ best pitcher in that series against the Houston Astros and even on just three days’ rest Wood would have given the Dodgers a better chance than Yu Darvish, who lasted only 10 batters in the Game 7 loss. Wood pitched the final two innings of that game in relief, striking out th...

Dodgers’ pitching plan puts them in a hole, Rays take Game 2 to even series

ARLINGTON, Texas — A lot of things sound good in planning meetings. There was probably a lot of talk of synergy and collaboration as the Dodgers exhausted bandwidth and searched for a scalable paradigm that would allow them to Johnny Wholestaff their way through Game 2. There would be a cat-loving iteration of Johnny (Tony Gonsolin), a red-headed iteration of Johnny (Dustin May), a left-handed iteration of Johnny (Victor Gonzalez), a sassy iteration of Johnny (Joe Kelly) and so on.

Special districts push for slice of California’s coronavirus relief pie

The prickly issue of financial help for state and local governments — hammered by COVID-related dips in tax revenue — has been like rocks in the dance shoes of Democrats and Republicans as they execute the latest coronavirus-relief minuet. While Democrats want $436 billion for state and local governments, Republicans refuse to “bail out” what they call “poorly run” and “mismanaged governments,” many of which happen to be in blue states. In California, sales tax collections are down nearly 5% thi...

Kick Ass or Die

Well, shit.  That’s about the only articulate thing I can say about 2020. To be fair, I’m out of practice. However, I’d also  guess I’m not the only person stuck in the space between “there are a lot of things that should be said about this year” and “dear god, I’m sick of people talking about this year.” A space that i believe can be most accurately described like this:  Well. Shit.  Sixteen years ago I started writing stories on the internet (about the adventures of renovating houses)...

Supreme Court nominee Barrett was trustee for private schools with anti-gay policies

By MICHELLE R. SMITH and MICHAEL BIESECKER | Associated Press Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett served for nearly three years on the board of private Christian schools that effectively barred admission to children of same-sex parents and made it plain that openly gay and lesbian teachers weren’t welcome in the classroom. The policies that discriminated against LGBTQ people and their children were in place for years at Trinity Schools Inc., both before Barrett joined the board in 2015 and d...
