In a letter to the editor published on GeorgiaPol.com, South Fulton Councilman Khalid Kamau alleges that Atlanta's major news outlets are biased against African-Americans. "Anyone watching local news would think South Fulton suffered the highest crime rate in Atlanta," he wrote. "And they would be wrong. That distinction belongs to Buckhead.?۝

"I do not support a livable wage.?۝ That poignant line came last night from Republican Karen Handel, answering a question about minimum wage, during her first debate against Jon Ossoff.

The choice has been made: Christopher Wray, a former Atlanta federal prosecutor, was picked to be the new head of the FBI. The president tweeted that Wray's got "impeccable credentials.?۝

Dozens of people have overdosed, and four have died, in the last two days from a batch of street drugs in Central Georgia.

Don't get your hopes up: According to reports, Attorney General Jeff Sessions allegedly offered to resign after his relationship with the president got tense. Apparently, 45 is pissed that Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation.
