Police Continue Hunt to Catch Charlie Hebdo Shooters, Mike Rogers Heads to CNN, Supreme Court to Meet on Gay Marriage: P.M. Links
Thousands of French police are searching the countryside and going door-to-door north of Paris trying to find the two brothers wanted in the deadly attacks on Charlie Hebdo. In the meantime, Google has earmarked about $300,000 to help support the satirical weekly, and other media outlets are expected to jump on board.
- Meanwhile terrorist group Boko Haram has attacked another village in Nigeria. Experts estimate the group has killed at least 2,000 people and displaced 1.5 million others in 2014.
- Supreme Court justices are scheduled to meet in a private conference tomorrow to discuss whether they'll take up any gay marriage recognition cases from a handful of states.
- Former Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) has taken his slavish, uninhibited devotion to the security state and its surveillance systems to CNN as a national security commentator.
- Before worrying about CNN's credibility, though, consider CNN anchor Don Lemon, who, after having a Muslim human rights lawyer on the show spending an entire segment condemning the attacks on Charlie Hebdo, obliviously asked the man if he "supports ISIS."
- A liberal activist in Saudi Arabia convicted crimes like disobeying his father and abandoning his faith, will receive the first 50 lashes of what will be a 1,000-lash sentence tomorrow, according to Amnesty International.
