Sources - Marlins cancel game as coronavirus spreads

Source: ESPN

The Miami Marlins' home opener against the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night has been canceled, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan, as coronavirus cases continue to pop up among the team.

Eight more players and two coaches with the Marlins have tested positive for coronavirus, as an outbreak has spread throughout their clubhouse and brought the total of cases in recent days to at least 14, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN.

The Marlins remain in Philadelphia and continue to undergo testing after their weekend series there.

On Sunday, four Marlins players tested positive for the coronavirus, including that day's starter, Jose Urena, according to sources familiar with the situation, leading the team to delay its postgame trip home amid concerns about a possible outbreak.

Podcast host Michael Brooks, the co-host of Majority Report, has passed away....

I really don't know much about him, but the tributes to him from people on the left are all over Twitter.


Michael Brooks, the popular host of The Michael Brooks Show, has died suddenly of a medical condition, his team announced. The Michael Brooks Show posted a statement on Twitter on July 20, writing, “It is with a heavy heart that we announce the unexpected passing of Michael Brooks: a son, brother, friend and true comrade to so many, due to a sudden medical condition.” No further details were provided about his cause of death.

The statement adds, “His family will release a statement in the near future about plans to keep his work alive by creating a foundation in his honor. While the form it will take is uncertain, Michael’s family desires to keep his work alive and asks all who wish to contribute continue doing so in the usual channels. Now we will honor Michael by treating all humans with respect and dignity.”

The Michael Brooks Show is a weekly web show and podcast hosted on the Majority Report Network by Disrupting the Narrative. It’s hosted by Michael Brooks and is described on its LinkedIn as a “history driven, politics and entertainment program.” Its Facebook page adds that it represents “the Vanguard of the New Left.” Brooks also described the show on his LinkedIn as “a smart, progressive, irreverent, and funny look at the politics of today.”

Bari Weiss quits the New York Times

How long before she's writing for The Federalist?


Bari Weiss, a writer and editor for the embattled New York Times Opinion section, has resigned from the paper.

When reached by phone, Weiss did not want to offer any further comment beyond confirming that she was out. According to an internal source, she was removed from the staff directory sometime in the past week.

A controversial figure inside and outside the paper, Weiss leaves in the wake of what she recently described as a civil war at the Times between (mostly young) wokes and (mostly 40+) liberals. That war reached its apex when Opinion head James Bennet, who had been widely tipped as a potential replacement for top Times editor Dean Baquet, left the paper after publishing an op-ed in which Senator Tom Cotton called for the use of military force against protestors.

Why is the tax decision weirdly being held to the last day?

This seems intentional, and it's something beneath the Supreme Court. The decision should have come out day one. It's open and shut.
