If you’re a Fox News fan, then you’ll be glad to know that there is a lot of breaking news on the air today. From Drew Brees passing Tom Brady to the Coronavirus being detected in a patient, there is plenty to keep you up-to-date.
Drew Brees surpasses Tom Brady on the all-time touchdown passes list
The NFL has a few prestigious records pertaining to the passing game. These include passing yards, completions and touchdowns. Currently, Tom Brady holds most of the best, including the most completions, most passing yards, and most TD passes. Only a few quarterbacks in the league have reached this benchmark, however.
Drew Brees currently sits second on the all-time list of passing yards, and is just one touchdown behind Tom Brady. Brees has thrown 600 touchdown passes in his career. He is also the first QB in NFL history to throw two go-ahead touchdown passes in a playoff game.
If you’re a fan of either team, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of the Super Bowl. However, the title isn’t a lock.
Coronavirus patient’s blood is taken out
One of the more entertaining aspects of the coronavirus is the number of people who succumb to its ills. The lucky few are a rare breed indeed. A recent study from the CDC’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention suggests that the aforementioned victims are in need of more than just medical attention. This is a particularly poignant situation given the fact that many of the affected individuals are children of the parents, adolescent women, or older men and women who have yet to take the reins. Regardless of the individual’s sex, gender, or age, it is safe to say that a successful coronavirus infection can be a debilitating and frustrating rite of passage.
John Fawcett alleges that Larry Kudlow has used ethnic slurs and made sexually inappropriate comments
John Fawcett, an associate producer for Larry Kudlow’s show on the Fox Business Network, has filed a lawsuit against the network and its parent company, Fox News. In the suit, the plaintiff claims that the executive producer of the show tried to force him to resign.
Fawcett also says that he was discriminated against on the basis of gender. He claims that the female executive producer attempted to replace male staff members with women.
The complaint against the network also alleges that Kudlow made “sexually inappropriate” comments about women. Fawcett’s complaint, which was filed in New York Supreme Court, seeks unspecified damages.
Fawcett worked at the show for five months before it was canceled. When he joined the program, he said that he was subjected to “unwelcome attention” from on-air personalities. His complaint was dismissed by the show’s executive producer.
