China's Xinjiang government confirms huge birth rate drop but denies forced sterilization of women The Xinjiang government sent CNN the six-page fax in response to questions for an article published in July that documented a campaign of abuse and control by Beijing targeting women from the Uyghur minority, a Muslim ethnic group numbering more than 10 million people. The fax didn't arrive until September 1, a month after the story was published.

Parscale replacement ‘shocked’ Trump campaign staffers, despite speculation Brad Parscale’s abrupt demotion Wednesday night “shocked” some inside the Trump campaign, sources familiar with the move told Fox News, even as President Trump’s sliding poll numbers and the recent Tulsa rally debacle had raised questions about his future. The president announced on Facebook and later on Twitter Wednesday night that Parscale would be replaced as campaign manager by Bill Stepien, who had served as deputy campaign manager. Parscale, who ran Trump’s digital advertising in 2016 and was promoted to Trump’s right hand man for the 2020 cycle, is expected to shift back to his previous role. Two top campaign officials told Fox News that Parscale will serve as a senior advisor focusing entirely on the campaign’s digital operation and data collection. Still, multiple sources told Fox News that many expected Parscale to stay through the election, and that Wednesday night’s announcement came as a “surprise” and that many were “shocked.”

Dale Earnhardt Jr. plane crash in 2019 was pilots' fault, NTSB says The National Transportation Safety Board said the probable cause of the incident in Tennessee was decisions by the pilots, including approaching the runway too fast and a failed attempt to abort the landing. "I don't need to tell ya, we're really fast," the co-pilot told the pilot who was flying the plane shortly before landing. The agency's final report concludes the pilots' decisions "resulted in a bounced landing, a loss of airplane control, a landing gear collapse, and a runway excursion." The pilots did not properly use the speed brakes and thrust reversers to stop the plane, and because of that, they lost the ability to go around and make a second attempt at landing.
