Fox News’ rocky relationship with former President Donald Trump continues as one of the network’s pundits, Geraldo Rivera, stated that the ex-commander-in-chief is guilty of inciting the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol.

“I believe that President Trump is guilty as charged of inciting that mob,” Rivera said. “Not specifically to go and ravage the Capitol, but his words and actions following his refusal to accept the election for 77 days and the inflammatory rhetoric he used about the ‘big steal’ and so forth.”

Despite being a Trump supporter during most of his time in office, Rivera has repeatedly criticized Trump for lying about his loss, sowing division and inflaming tensions that led to the Jan. 6 insurrection.

However, Rivera does add that despite Trump’s involvement, the former president should receive a pardon. “I heartily endorse Karl’s suggestion. I wish President Biden would pardon Donald Trump,” Rivera said. “It would never happen, but wouldn’t that be a happy ending to this unsavory chapter in American history.”

A WSAZ-TV had an eventful night in her final week to close out her tenure with the West Virginia television station. Tori Yorgey was on assignment giving her live weather report but was struck by a car before she could provide the information. 

Anchor Tim Irr stated in the video, “And now we’re starting to experience unfortunately in freeze-thaw we see this, water main breaks” before tossing it over to Yorgey to give her report. 

The vehicle struck Yorgey. However, she gets right back up.

“Oh my God, I just got hit by a car, but I’m okay. I just got hit by a car, but I’m ok, Tim,” Yorgey said. “I’m okay; we’re all good. I’m okay; yeah, that’s live tv for you; it’s all good. I actually got hit by a car in college like that too.”

The WSAZ-TV reporter would also comfort the driver, letting the women behind that wheel know that she’s okay and not seriously hurt. 

“I am so glad I’m ok, you’re ok, you’re ok. We’re all good. You know what? It’s a one-woman band. We’re good, Tim,” Yorgey said. “Ma’am, you are so sweet, and you are ok. It is all good. Oh, Lord. You know it’s my last week on the job, and I think this would happen specifically to me, Tim.”

“Were you bumped down low, Tori, or were you hit up high… I couldn’t really tell… I just saw you disappear out of the screen,” Irr asked Yorgey. 

As Yorgey gathered herself following the incident, she stated that her “whole life just flashed before my eyes.” Adding that, they “might need to move the camera over a bit,” Yorgey said.

“Tori’s in an area right now where there has been a water main break,” Irr explained to viewers.

Furthermore, Irr went on Twitter to further explain the situation. Some might think Irr had zero concern for his colleague, but he explained that those at the station were only receiving the audio.

“One Day in March” tracks the aftermath of the 2021 mass shooting in Atlanta where a 21-year-old white man killed eight people, including six women of Asian descent, at three separate spa sites.

“The tragedy of the Atlanta shootings and the events of the past two years has compelled a deep reflection within the community about our place in the American polity,” Directed by Titi Yu said in a statement

It has galvanized the Asian American community to speak up and speak out.”

The one-hour film also highlights how anger felt following this attack, and others have turned into action and activism. Furthermore, the documentary is part of a public media reporting endeavor, “Exploring Hate: Antisemitism, Racism, and Extremism,” examining hate crimes in America and internationally.

“We watched in horror and shock as vicious attacks on Asian Americans were caught on camera, and we saw how this violence escalated to the killing of six women of Asian descent in the Atlanta shooting,” said Gina Kim, executive producer of “One Day in March.” 

“With this documentary, we hope to examine this troubling escalation of racism against the AAPI community, pay respect to the lives lost and impacted by the violence, and champion those coming together to fight against the hate.”
