From Tom’s Reading List

CBS News: Runoff in Georgia House district could test Trump’s influence — “A narrow miss by a Democratic newcomer in a conservative Georgia House district has triggered a high-stakes runoff that could test President Donald Trump’s influence and the limits of the backlash against him.”

New York Times: Bill O’Reilly Is Forced Out at Fox News — “Bill O’Reilly’s reign as the top-rated host in cable news came to an abrupt and embarrassing end on Wednesday as Fox News forced him out after the disclosure of a series of sexual harassment allegations against him and an internal investigation that turned up even more.”

The Wall Street Journal: Le Pen Rise Before French Election Fueled by Industrial Decline — “With days to go before the start of France’s presidential elections, Ms. Le Pen’s antiestablishment and euroskeptic message is resonating with voters here and in other struggling industrial cities, where years of declining fortunes have fueled deep anger with the country’s political elite and the European Union.”
