Loch Ness Monster/Men’s Fitness/Miss Teen USA, Hillary Emails/Republican Convention/Trump Rape Accusation, Jesse Williams, Alton Sterling

7th July 2016

Hello friends! Travis is done traveling and we’re bringing you another great episode just jam-packed with trending news! A mysterious carcass showed up on the shores of Loch Ness… well, not really THAT mysterious. Men’s Health had a questionable and in many ways offensive article about turning a NO into a YES. The organizers of the Miss Teen USA pageant have made a pretty big change, but is it big enough? In Politics Round Up, we’ve got some pretty big developments in the Clinton Email Investigation. It seems like the GOP is having hard time finding folks to speak at their convention. And Donald Trump was accused of rape, but it doesn’t seem like the news is really covering it. Actor Jesse Williams delivered a speech at the BET Awards that many consider controversial. Unfortunately, Williams’ speech became even more topical when Alton Sterling was shot and killed by police this week. All this, plus the Wi-Five of the Week!
