4 Things To Know: Lynx Lose, Lady Gaga New Album, Russian Hacking & More

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – From the Minnesota Lynx losing Game 5 of the WNBA finals to Lady Gaga’s new album, here is a look at the top four stories from Oct. 21, 2016.

Lynx Lose

The Minnesota Lynx had a heartbreaking loss Thursday night.

At the Target Center, the ladies battle back late in the fourth quarter to tie the game with under two minutes left.

After trading baskets, Maya Moore put the Lynx up by one with 15 second to go. But the Sparks were able to make the big shot too, giving them a 77 to 76 win. It was the team’s first championship in 14 years.

Clinton Campaign Chair’s Email Hacked

Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair’s email was infiltrated by Russian hackers.

Cybersecurity experts confirmed the news saying the same hackers targeted other democratic groups as well.

The firm SecureWorks said John Podesta unwittingly entered his credentials on a fake Google login page.

WikiLeaks has already released 23,000 Podesta emails and said it still has 27,000 more.

AAP: Kids Can Have More Screen Time

Go ahead and let your kids have a little screen time.

The American Academy of Pediatrics said it’s OK for babies to Skype or Facetime, and for older children and teens to do some of their socializing, learning and playing online.

The new guidelines replace longstanding recommendations that children under age 2 avoid all screens, and teens only use them for an hour or two a day.

New Album From Gaga

Lady Gaga drops a new album Friday.

It’s called “Joanne” and marks the singers fifth studio album.

Gaga’s last release came in 2013 in what’s turned out to be her worst selling album to date.

The 30-year-old named this new album for her late aunt.

If it hits number 1 on the Billboard 200, it will make for Gaga’s fourth consecutive chart topper.

    “Russian Hackers” huh? If they know who did it, then they could have prevented it. COMPLETE B.S. Quit the political pandering and just tell the story. The e-mail was hacked, they are either too stupid to stop it, or the same old “victim” theme is being used to try to garner sympathy. If she cannot protect her e-mails now, what will her and her staff do when she is POTUS? Seriously, is this is the level of competency that she displays, is she really qualified to be POTUS?

      Democrat state owned media like WCCO are using the Democrat talking points that Russia is to blame if Hillary loses. They are pushing the story that Russian hacking of voting machines will be the cause of Hillary’s loss. Democrat plants in the CIA and intelligence community are going out to reporters to give this false narrative right now. Reuters just pushed this lie with the headline story “U.S. vote authorities warned to be alert to Russian hacks faking fraud – officials”. Reuters is the same Democrat owned media which hired known terrorists to stage fake photos and stories about dead women and children in the Middle East Obama wars.
