CNN —For nearly a decade, US Coast Guard leaders have concealed a critical report that exposed racism, hazing, discrimination and sexual assault across the agency. That investigation found that serious misconduct had been ignored and, at times, covered up by high-ranking officials, allowing alleged offenders to rise within the ranks of the Coast Guard and other military branches. The Coast Guard said this week it had enacted or partially enacted 60 of 129 recommendations, including additional training and additional support services for victims. The Coast Guard did not comment on concerns that problems remain at the agency, or the statistics or examples cited by CNN. Yet to this day, none of the accused service members from her case have faced any consequences.

An image saying that U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was arrested as a teenager in 1998 for killing several dogs was created by a social media account that has since been suspended. The image (archived) circulating online includes two different pictures and the text: “Why won’t anyone discuss why a teenage Buttigieg strangled 5 dogs? @CNN @washingtonpost @nytimes.”One picture shows a newspaper folded in half, so the name of the publication only reads “South Ben.” It says that a local teenager named Pete Buttigieg was arrested on suspicion of killing at least five dogs. There is no story about a teenager arrested for killing dogs or involving Buttigieg. A news clipping saying Pete Buttigieg killed dogs in high school is fabricated.

Edgar Sison gave up his ability to work on commercial ships nearly two years after being accused of rape. Federal prosecutors had recently notified Hicks that that they wouldn’t be filing criminal charges against Sison, according to her attorney Ryan Melogy. By surrendering his ability to work on commercial ships, Sison avoided a hearing on the administrative assault charges against him. It also revealed the problems and limitations that the US Coast Guard has in investigating such offenses, as a CNN investigation found earlier this year. It ultimately took the agency nearly two years to successfully keep Sison from working on commercial ships.

CNN did not announce that there would be no live audiences at future town hall events after hosting former U.S. President Donald Trump this month, a spokesperson for the news channel said, reacting to a claim posted online. The claim was shared on social media after CNN hosted a town hall with Trump in New Hampshire on May 10, marking the first televised town hall of the 2024 presidential campaign (here). One tweet gathered over 40,000 likes and reads: “CNN announces there will be no more live audiences at town halls Trump broke CNN” ( Reuters did not find any credible media outlets reporting that there will be an end to live audiences during town hall events leading up to the 2024 elections ( Reuters did not find any press release ( or reporting on CNN’s website indicating that the channel would no longer host live audiences at town hall events (
Trump was back on CNN primetime during a town hall appearance on Wednesday night. And CNN certainly seemed to be eager for conservative buy-in during the Wednesday town hall, filling the room with a mixture of New Hampshire Republicans and effectively independent voters. The former president's advisor told other outlets that the town hall was an effort to underline Trump's 2016 strategy of reaching beyond the traditional GOP coalition. During the Wednesday town hall, Trump called Carroll a "whack job," echoing the very falsehoods that landed him with a defamation charge this week. "The predictably disastrous @cnn town hall was indeed disastrous," former broadcast exec and current dean of the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication at Hofstra University, Mark Lukasiewicz tweeted.
A day after a jury found Trump sexually violated E. Jean Carroll, he mocked her as a "whack job" on CNN. CNN let Trump try to re-victimize his own sex-assault victim in front of millions, victim advocates said. Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has said she is a survivor of sexual assault, slammed CNN's town hall with Trump as "shameful." "As a sexual assault survivor I'm disgusted with @CNN," tweeted @Irishrygirl. She explained how for many survivors of sexual assault the "pain" that comes with being disbelieved "is deeply harmful over and above the harms of sexual assault itself."
Should a leading presidential contender be given the opportunity to speak to voters on live television? What if that contender is former President Donald J. Trump? Mr. Trump is set to appear on CNN on Wednesday night for a town hall in New Hampshire — his first live appearance on a major TV news network (besides those controlled by Rupert Murdoch) since 2020 — and a torrid media debate is swirling. Those objections intensified on Tuesday after Mr. Trump was found liable for the sexual abuse and defamation of the writer E. Jean Carroll. “Is @CNN still going to do a town hall with the sexual predator twice impeached insurrectionist?” Alexander S. Vindman, the Army colonel who was a witness in Mr. Trump’s first impeachment trial, wrote on Twitter.

Sheila Bair, a top regulator during the 2008 financial crisis, told CNN there are eerie similarities between the dramatic rise and fall of Bankman-Fried and FTX and that of infamous Ponzi scheme mastermind Bernie Madoff. Bair notes that 30-year-old Bankman-Fried, like Madoff, proved adept at using his pedigree and connections to seduce sophisticated investors and regulators into missing “red flags” hiding in plain sight. Up until the bankruptcy filing, FTX even had an application pending with federal regulators to clear derivatives, The Wall Street Journal reported. FTX’s bankruptcy filing indicates it had liabilities of $10 billion to $50 billion at the time of the filing. — If you are an FTX customer and want to discuss how you have been impacted by the bankruptcy, please reach out to
