Liberal Washington Post columnist cautions Dems: Embracing 'Medicare for All' may aid Trump

FOX News

Ever since one leading 2020 presidential candidate, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., called for eliminating private health insurance to implement "Medicare for All," there has been pushback by some moderate Democrats, including a Washington Post columnist who cautioned the party against embracing such a platform, especially while campaigning against President Trump. Harris is one of the biggest champions for "Medicare for All," especially on Capitol Hill, where she co-sponsored a bill with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. However, after reiterating her support for the program at a CNN town hall earlier this week, Harris was asked about those who currently have health insurance plans through private companies. "So for people out there who like their insurance, they don't get to keep it?" CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked.

TV news commentator steps down following exposure of fake academic background

The Japan Times

Fuji Television Network Inc. said Wednesday it will scrap plans to use Sean McArdle Kawakami, a popular radio and TV personality, as emcee of a major news show slated to begin in April, after he admitted "errors" in his publicized academic background. Kawakami, also known as "Sean K," apologized in a message posted online Tuesday about the "gross misunderstanding" he caused over his resume. He said he had never obtained an "M.B.A. from Harvard Business School" or "tertiary education at l'Universite de Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne," as had been stated in English on his website. The 47-year-old also admitted he actually never "received his B.A. in Business Administration from Temple University" in Tokyo, saying he dropped out of the school shortly after entering. The confession by the commentator, who claims to have an Irish American-Japanese father and a Japanese mother, came after Shukan Bunshun -- a weekly magazine that has uncovered a number of scandals related to Japanese politicians and celebrities in recent months -- printed an article, titled "Sean K's lies," in its latest edition, which hit newsstands Wednesday.
