Last month, USA Today got caught allowing failed 2018 Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams to stealth edit a piece it had published. Editors allowed Abrams to sound more anti-boycott than she initially did after Major League Baseball announced they were pulling the All-Star Game over Georgia's new voting law, which Abrams had referred to as "Jim Crow 2.0."

Caitlyn Jenner, who announced her run for California governor as a Republican, set off a firestorm because she opposes transgender girls competing in female sports. Caitlyn, born Bruce Jenner, dominated the Olympics in track and field. She came out as transgender in 2015. She kept her Republican views, but her stance on transgender girls and sports led to even more backlash.

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James took massive heat when he threatened the cop who shot Ma'Khia Bryant. He eventually took down the tweet, but he already did enough damage. Los Angeles cop Deon Joseph responded with a letter on Facebook, asking James to sit down with him or any other cop to discuss the "reality of the profession of policing."

We saw Press Secretary Jen Psaki try to deny President Joe Biden had anything to do with MLB moving its All-Star Game out of Atlanta, GA, over the state's"Jim Crow laws." I guess the blowback was huge because Biden softened his stance when it comes to athletes. He refused to take a side when asked if the Masters golf tournament should leave Augusta, GA, due to those "Jim Crow laws." He cannot stop describing them as Jim Crow laws.
