    I'm watching my Roku3, looking at NBC News - U.S. News

    I move the screen over to Gumbel: NFL's Good at Masquerading. The title of the news segment is:

    Goodell under Scrutiny
    Calls for Resignation after Ray Rice Video

    Bryant Gumbel says


    ... the NFL is a tax-exempt non-profit.

    Awesome. Republican Tom Coburn is trying to remove the NFL's tax exempt status despite the fact that the NFL contributes mainly to Republicans.

    Meanwhile Democrat Players Unions are trying to protect wife and child beaters who also aren't known for being gay friendly.

    Uh, that goes for both of ya' by the way. I'll Google both later (off to work now), and at least we know the article is on the NBC News - US News site), but links are always great for quick reference.

    I'm using "U.S. News" as a category, not as some joint reporting by NBC News and US News (if that magazine/news firm is still operating).

    There's Top News, U.S. News, World News, Politics, Entertainment, Nightly News with Brian Williams, etc.
