Crooked Media

Convention Goes Electric

Convention Goes Electric

Joe Biden is no longer traveling to Milwaukee for the DNC, and neither are other primetime speakers like President Barack Obama. A sized-down RNC will be held in Charlotte, with Trump planning to deliver his speech from The White House.  Six of the seven largest school districts in the country will begin the school year entirely online, with New York City as the only holdout. One Yale student is suing his school for charging full tuition for an online education he considers inferior.  And in headlines: today is the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, more updates on the disaster in Beirut, and Facebook blows minds by inventing TikTok. Plus, Crooked's own Jon Lovett fills in for Akilah. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
