Fox News Tonight guest host Harris Faulkner gave her primetime audience Tuesday some revisionist history regarding the 1918-19 influenza pandemic when trying to make a point about school closures due to COVID-19. To Faulkner, these are “pandemic lockdowns and keeping our own children home from schools when a virus was hurting them far less often than adults”–a clear reference to the curtailed aspects of public life brought on by COVID-19. In an apparent attempt to contrast the wise decisions of government officials in 1918 with the ones made a century later, Faulkner then wrongly claimed that schools did not close back then.

The recall covers various Escape and Lincoln Corsair SUVs and Maverick compact pickup trucks from the 2020-2023 model years with 2.5L hybrid or plug-in hybrid engines, according to a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Tucker Carlson launched his promised new show on Twitter today with talk of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, UFOs, who killed JFK and what really went down on 9/11 — and the one-time Fox News host was a hit. In just over four hours, the low-tech 10-minute video posted on the Elon Musk-owned social media platform has attracted 27 million views. Broadcasting from what looked like a wooden cabin home studio and postulating that “American citizens are the least informed in the world,” and his well-trodden take on the failings of the American media, Carlson essentially delivered what counted for a more echoing and caffeinated version of his nightly monologue on FNC's Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Earlier this week Tesla (TSLA) announced on its website that all versions of the Model 3 sedan now qualify for the full federal EV tax credit of $7,500; previously the cheaper Model 3 Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) version qualified for half the amount. The federal government's requirements for the EV tax credit mandate that 40% of the critical minerals be extracted in the US or a country with a free trade agreement, and 50% of the value of the battery components must be manufactured or assembled in North America. Prior to the announcement, Tesla was reportedly using LFP (lithium ion phosphate) battery cells made by China's CATL.

MOSCOW (Reuters) -Russia's defence minister said on Tuesday his forces had thwarted the first three days of a Ukrainian counter-offensive, alleging that they had killed or wounded more than 3,700 Ukrainian soldiers.

Ukraine has maintained deliberate ambiguity about whether its long-expected counter-offensive is under way, and Reuters could not independently verify the battlefield claims.

Iran claimed on Tuesday that it had created a hypersonic missile capable of traveling at 15 times the speed of sound, adding a new weapon to its arsenal as tensions remain high with the United States over Tehran's nuclear program. The new missile — called Fattah, or “Conqueror” in Farsi — was unveiled even as Iran said it would reopen its diplomatic posts on Tuesday in Saudi Arabia after reaching a détente with Riyadh following years of conflict. The tightly choreographed segment on Iranian state television apparently sought to show that Tehran's hard-line government can still deploy arms against its enemies across much of the Middle East.
