NEIL CAVUTO WARNS PEOPLE AGAINST TAKING TRUMP DRUG
NEW YORK (AP) – It’s a bit of advice rarely heard on the Fox News Channel: don’t do what President Donald Trump says or does. But that’s just what host Neil Cavuto is telling his viewers. He issued a stern warning last night against people joining Trump in taking a malaria drug to protect against the coronavirus. Trump says for the past week and a half, he’s been taking hydroxychloroquine to ward off COVID-19 symptoms. But Cavuto tells viewers the drug could have fatal side effects. He says people should, in his words, “be very, very careful” about following Trump’s medical advice.
KEN OSMOND, EDDIE HASKELL ON “LEAVE IT TO BEAVER,” DIES
LOS ANGELES (AP) – He was good at being bad, at least as bad as one could be in a sitcom from the late 1950s and early 1960s. The actor who played Eddie Haskell on “Leave It to Beaver” has died. Ken Osmond was 76. His character was to have been a one-off – as a pal to Tony Dow’s Wally, Beaver’s older brother. But he was so good at causing trouble for his peers while ingratiating himself to adults, he ended up in nearly half the episodes. Osmond was so linked to Eddie, he had trouble getting other roles – and eventually bailed from Hollywood to become a police officer.
WENDY WILLIAMS TAKING A BREAK FROM HER SHOW
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Wendy Williams is taking time off from her daytime talk show. A rep says Williams will be getting treatment to fight off the fatigue she’s had because of Graves’ disease. The show isn’t saying when she is expected back. Like most talk show hosts, Williams has been working from home because of the coronavirus pandemic. Fans can see reruns during her absence.
REALITY TV CHASE ENDS IN DEATH
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Things on a reality TV show got a little too real over the weekend. Authorities in Alabama say a man who led officers and a crew from “Live PD” on a chase ended up crashing his vehicle into a tanker truck. The accident killed the suspect’s 15-year-old son. Police say the suspect, Reico Terry, is in custody. Birmingham police say sheriff’s deputies called off the chase before the crash – because the pursuit had become too dangerous. The “PD Live” crew was filming at the time – but wasn’t broadcasting live.
