I enjoy this show as a morning news update. It's quick and fun. But I beg you, stop using the phrase "Yeah, so" as a transition. Once you've noticed it, you can't unnotice it.

Really disappointed by this episode. Women are capable of being abusers too. I think it should have been acknowledged here that neither party is innocent and both experienced abuse from the other, not just the woman in the relationship. Amber Heard lied about a lot of things, and while I understand the concern about people using her as a universal symbol of "See! Women lie about these things", it is still important to acknowledge that she is not innocent. That can be done while still affirming that she doesn't represent all women who claim abuse and other women should still be believed about what they go through.

I guess let's not talk about how disgusting it is to coin "missing white women syndrome"? Dissing on white women for going missing and getting murdered doesn't help any other woman who got murdered. WOC deserve to have just as much attention on their cases. Using other murdered women to get that point across is not the right way to do it.
