Loyal brother Chris was digging into his Google contacts to assist his sibling when he was snagged for unethical journalistic conduct. In a means, it was an odd appropriation for Cuomo-the-younger – a journalist?

#2 – Jussie: Trials & Tribulations
Actor Jussie Smollett obtained hammered by a Chicago jury, which discovered him responsible of 5 of the six fees for manufacturing a hate crime. The former Empire solid member tried to behave his means out of the mess he created, however nobody was ingesting the Kool-Aid. What Jussie was considering when he paid two buddies to “assault” him is anybody’s guess. Smollett tried to get of us to consider the violence in opposition to him was motivated by racial and sexual bias, however he simply couldn’t pull off a whopper of a hoax and will, the truth is, get a while within the slammer because of this.
#3 – Alec Baldwin

Handling what was imagined to be a “cold gun,” Baldwin claims to have by no means pulled the set off on a firearm that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza. Two civil lawsuits have been filed amid the finger-pointing as specialists attempt to untangle the lethal mess. Any means you narrow it, Baldwin is on the epicenter of this debacle that’s unlikely to finish anytime quickly.
#4 – Chris Wallace

Then there are the COVID variants that carry on coming and a president predicting gloom, doom, and dying this winter.
Still, the American individuals are a resilient lot. Going all the best way again to the Revolution, we’ve managed to beat the percentages, rise above the tragedies, and stay to battle one other day. So, as we enter 2022, we are able to lean into Voltaire, who stated, “Optimism is the madness of insisting that all is well when we are miserable.” Or we are able to embrace the phrases of Victor Hugo, who averred, “Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.”
