Doug Schoen: Remembering Pat Caddell -- a colleague, mentor and friend

Today 18:10 GMT

I have appeared on air with Pat Caddell many times on Fox News, and I would like to think that the contribution that we made together was a profound one.

I am proud to have called Pat Caddell a friend, but even more proud to have called him a mentor, colleague, and a visionary. He will be missed, and missed profoundly, by all of those who have been involved with politics at a high level for the last 50 years.

Man who died in Democratic megadonor Ed Buck's home called him a 'f---ing devil,' report says

Today 16:20 GMT

A man who died last month at the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic Party fundraiser Ed Buck warned his friends to steer clear of the well-connected donor and referred to him as a "f---ing devil" and "a horrible, horrible man," according to a report Monday night.

Buck's attorney, Seymour Amster, described Dean at the time of his death as a "longtime friend" of Buck who had "reached out for his help" and had begun "acting in a bizarre way" after he arrived at Buck's apartment the night he died. When contacted by Fox News about the Daily Beast report, Amster wrote in an email: "We are in possession of text messages from Mr. Dean to Mr. Buck that refute the picture the Daily Beast is trying to paint of the relationship between Mr. Dean and Mr. Buck.

The report added: "This knowledge helped them to decide which companies were performing well and therefore gave them invaluable data on possible competitors.

During his high-school years, Mr. Kroll became frustrated that his home’s slow internet connection was impeding his ability to download music, his father, Alan Kroll, said. He taught himself to code in multiple programming languages while jamming to Dave Matthews Band in his bedroom.

How smart are Gmail’s ‘smart replies’?

Monday 08:03 GMT

The blandness of Gmail’s smart replies had been their camouflage, the processing power of 10m moon landings, disguised in a sea of inane pleasantries and errant exclamation marks.

It’s odd that Gmail smart replies have only been around since 2017, since they’re the kind of subtly ever-present tool that now seems always to have been there. Seeking answers, I stopped resisting and spent an entire week surrendering to its every whim.

I used to feel self-conscious about talking about my faith until THIS amazing thing happened

Monday 07:08 GMT

Maybe you tell yourself your religious beliefs are too heavy to discuss with friends or perhaps you feel you’ve been too much of a “sinner” to talk about your faith, or it could be you think people will think you’re trying to convert them on the spot if you mention your beliefs.

I used to feel ALL of these emotions when presented with opportunities to talk about my faith in Jesus with friends and acquaintances; a little voice in my head would say, “They’re going to think you’re an uptight religious freak. Bringing up your faith will only make things awkward.”

Lee Radziwill, Jackie Kennedy's younger sister, dies aged 85

Sunday 21:49 GMT

Radziwill came to resent media attention based on her famous sibling, telling Vanity Fair in 2016: “Please tell me this is not a story about my sister and me.

Radziwill nonetheless frequently discussed her time in and around the Kennedy White House, telling the New York Times she could not “deny those few years were glamorous. It’s like we’re Siamese twins!” Vanity Fair duly told Radziwill’s story as it intertwined with that of Kennedy Onassis.
