Trump charges media with protecting Biden on Ukraine story; Biden angrily responds on campaign trail

President Trump said Saturday the media is “fabricating” a story about him pressuring the president of Ukraine to investigate the son of Democratic frontrunner Joseph R. Biden, while ignoring a story about Mr. Biden essentially blackmailing Ukrainian leaders to lay off his son. Meanwhile, campaigning in Iowa, Mr. Biden angrily accused the president of “using every element of his presidency to try and smear me.” He called for an investigation into Mr. Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president.

More than 2,000 employees of the United Nations have called on their own U.N. bosses to practice what they preach when it comes to the environment and reduce their own carbon footprints. Gasp.
