September 12, 2018 | CBS, Vapes, and Uighurs

Domestic

  • CBS fired the producer of 60 minutes, Jeff Fager. CBS released a memo saying the firing had nothing to do with recent allegations. These allegations surfaced in an article by Ronan Farrow, but Fager responded by saying the firing had to do with his demand of fair reporting and had nothing to do with the “lies” in The New Yorker.
  • A new report by the FDA says that vapes are being used in “epidemic proportions” by youths. They gave vape companies including Juul 60 days to prove they can keep the cigs out of the hands of teens. If they aren’t able to prove that teens won’t be able to use them, then the FDA may take the flavored products off the market.

Global

  • A new study shows that more than 3,600 kids were abused by German priests in the last 70 years.
  • In China, a man was arrested for running his car into a crowd, killing nine and injuring dozens.
  • Also in China, QR codes are being placed outside of the homes of Uighurs – a Chinese Muslim sect. These codes display private information about the people living there. This comes after crackdowns against the group and reports that there are internment camps for Uighurs.
