FAA warns airline passengers not to use Samsung smartphone
Aviation safety officials took the extraordinary step of warning airline passengers not to turn on or charge a new-model Samsung smartphone during flights following numerous reports of the devices catching fire. WASHINGTON -- Aviation safety officials took the extraordinary step of warning airline passengers not to turn on or charge a new-model Samsung smartphone during flights following numerous reports of the devices catching fire. The Federal Aviation Administration issued the warning Thursday night, citing "recent incidents and concerns raised by Samsung about its Galaxy Note 7 devices." It is extremely unusual for the FAA to warn passengers about a specific product. Passengers were also urged not to put the phones in checked bags. Samsung recently stopped selling the phones and recalled more than 2 million of them after reports that the phones have spontaneously caught fire. In one case, a family in St. Petersburg, Florida, reported a Galaxy 7 phone left charging in their Jeep caught fire, destroying the vehicle.

Creepy clown reports continue, and clowns are not happy
First there were the reports in Greenville County, S.C., of creepy clowns offering children money to come into the woods. Mike Becvar, a professional clown who goes by the name Sir Toony Van Dukes and who runs the website Just For Clowns, said anxiety about the incidents has been stoked by media coverage. The Winston-Salem Police Department said officers responded to a call around 8:30 p.m. Sunday of a person dressed in a clown costume offering treats to children. The report said the person - wearing white overalls and red shoes, with red bushy hair, a white face and a red nose - fled once officers arrived. Police could not locate the clown, described as having red curly hair, wearing a mask, a yellow dotted shirt and blue pants.

Cleveland man stabbed in face, kicks robber in groin during home invasion
A 68-year-old man was stabbed in the face during a home invasion in Cleveland's Brooklyn Centre neighborhood. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A 68-year-old man kicked a robber in the groin after he was stabbed in the face during a home invasion in the city's Brooklyn Centre neighborhood. The man was taken to MetroHealth Wednesday in critical condition, police said. No arrests have been made, but police listed a suspect in the police report. The attack happened about 6:15 p.m. at the man's home on West 33rd Street, between Denison and Archwood avenues. The robber pushed his way into the man's apartment, police said. He demanded the man's keys and wallet. He threatened to kill him and stabbed him in the face with a box cutter, according to police reports. The man fought back and kicked the robber in the groin, according to police. The robber stabbed him a few more times while shoving him into a back room, police reports say. The robber grabbed the man's keys and stole his 2007 Chevrolet Impala, police reports say. Neighbors told police they heard loud screams and heard the 68-year-old man gasping for air in the hallway. They found him bleeding from the face and tried to help stop the bleeding by putting pressure on the stab wounds, according to police.  Officers found the man lying in a pool of blood in the hallway. They also reported seeing a trail of blood through the man's apartment, according to police reports.   The man told police he knew the robber because he gave him a ride to Bedford on Tuesday, police reports say. Later that day, the robber took the man's phone, but the man was able to get it back, according to police reports. The apartment manager told police the suspect is illegally squatting in the apartment after a conviction for abduction in April.

10 Texas departments belatedly file reports on officer-involved shootings
In the last two weeks, 10 Texas police departments rushed to belatedly file reports on fatal officer-involved shootings as required by a ground-breaking 2015 state law. Two weeks ago, the Houston Chronicle and the American Statements published stories about how those reports – which law enforcement agencies must  submit to the Texas Attorney General's office when an officer is shot or shoots someone else – had not been filed by a dozen departments in accordance with state law. The stories are part of an on-going series on the shootings of unarmed Texans called Point of Impact. Just two reports on fatal shootings remain missing as of Feb. 16. All shootings occurred since Sept. 1, 2015, when the reporting requirement took effect.

Donald Trump accuses media of not reporting terrorist attacks
The White House later releases a list of attacks it says were underreported, which includes some that received worldwide coverage. TAMPA, Florida -- Donald Trump continued his assault on media coverage Monday, accusing news agencies of intentionally not reporting terrorist attacks. Trump made the claim while speaking to the U.S. Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, according to multiple reports. The president offered no specifics on what attacks were not reported. "All over Europe, it's happening. It's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported," Trump said, according to Reuters. "And, in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it. They have their reasons and you understand that." The White House issued a list Monday evening of 78 attacks it says were inspired or carried out by ISIS, the Associated Press reports. The list includes the truck attack in Nice, France, which received worldwide coverage, and attacks in which there were no fatalities. The AP was unable to confirm if every attack on the list was associated with ISIS. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Trump actually meant that attacks don't receive enough coverage, the AP reports. "He felt that members of media don't always cover some of those events to the extent that other events might get covered," Spicer said. "Like a protest gets blown out of the water, and yet an attack or a foiled attack doesn't necessarily get the same coverage." Politifact.com reviewed Trump's claim and noted that terrorist attacks occur everyday around the world. Benjamin H. Friedman, a research fellow in security studies at the libertarian Cato Institute, tells Politifact that attacks in the West receive far more coverage than those in other parts of the world. Recent attacks on U.S. soil received extensive coverage, including in San Bernandino, Calif., Orlando, Fla., and at Ohio State University.  Ted Bromund, a foreign policy specialist with the conservative Heritage Foundation, tells Politifact that there is evidence that the nature of some attacks has been downplayed. He said some politicians have been hesitant to blame some attacks on radical Islamists. Still, Politifact rated Trump's statement "Pants on Fire."

Channel 5's 'Good Morning Cleveland' aims to bring more 'real news' to the morning with the E-Team
WEWS Channel 5 recently launched the E-Team on its "Good Morning Cleveland" program, which airs weekdays from 4:30-7 a.m. The three E's in the name stand for exclusive, enterprise and early. The goal is a simple, but novel concept: to deliver substantive hard news in the morning. Watch video CLEVELAND, Ohio -- When people think of morning local news, the perception is often traffic and weather on the tens, recycled news from the night before and a lot of fluff.  WEWS Channel 5 is trying to change that. The station recently launched the E-Team on its "Good Morning Cleveland" program, which airs weekdays from 4:30-7 a.m. The three E's in the name stand for exclusive, enterprise and early. The goal is a simple, but novel concept: to deliver substantive hard news in the morning. "You compare it to the tradition of the morning newspaper," News 5 news director Jeff Harris said, talking about the dearth of enterprise reporting in the morning. "For local broadcast news, it is an unconventional and somewhat discomforting feeling to invest many of your news stories and important stories right when the day begins." Harris says original reporting has been missing from morning newscasts for decades and a change is overdue.   "It's really what news consumers are crying out for," he said.  The introduction of the E-Team -- reporters Jonathan Walsh, Kristin Volk, James Gherardi, Lauren Wilson and a group of producers and photographers working behind the scenes -- might seem like a course correction for "Good Morning Cleveland." The current iteration launched in 2015 with splashy promos focusing on the show's fresh and hip cast. Since then, four of the six reporters featured in the spots have left, leaving only anchors Terrence Lee and Corrina Pysa. But Harris says "GMC" was always a hard news show. "There's always a difference between how newscasts are advertised and the experience in watching it. I wouldn't say anything's changed, really," the news director said. So, you'll still find plenty of traffic and weather, however, alongside that, you'll now see more meaningful stories and what Harris calls "real news" as well. "Just this morning we broke news about a questionable hire in East Cleveland in the police department," he said. "The stories will range from investigative in nature to stories that are hopeful and highlight the renaissance of Cleveland." In addition to the new faces, viewers will notice new graphics, a faster pace and more live shots. The changes -- the news director won't call it a re-branding -- have coincided with the start of February sweeps, but the station says it's not about ratings, it's about quality. "We have an expression here, which is, 'Hard news is news that's hard to get.' It takes investment, it takes time, it takes commitment," Harris said. "It's about asking tough questions and about holding the powerful accountable. That's the kind of stuff you'll be seeing in the morning." In its first week, the E-Team reported on stories about a program that puts released convicts to work and, also, why it takes so long for potholes to get fixed-- stories traditionally reserved for the evening newscast. Harris is excited about what the team has in store in the coming days and weeks, though he's keeping his cards close to the vest. "This ain't no stunt," he said.
