In 1968, the Black man sustained a head injury and went to Virginia’s top research hospital to be treated. Tucker slipped into a coma, his family was never contacted and his heart ended up in the body of a white businessman. Author Chip Jones writes about the circumstances around Tucker’s death and the inequality in medical treatment in his new Simon & Schuster book “The Organ Thieves: The Shocking Story Of The First Heart Transplant In The Segregated South.” Jones spent years looking into the story of Tucker’s death and also the history of mistreatment of Black men and women in the world...
    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's explosive new biography Finding Freedom has became an Amazon bestseller within 24 hours of its release.

    The authors of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's new biography Finding Freedom have confirmed that they spoke with the couple 'when appropriate' in an acknowledgement buried at the back of the explosive book. The controversial biography written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand was released yesterday and raised eyebrows for its gushing praise and intimate knowledge of the Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 39. As the book was released, Scobie gave interviews denying ever interviewing the couple for the book and insisted that it was their 'many' friends who provided insights. However the author's note appears to acknowledge that the writers worked with the couple on the biography, reading: 'We have spoken with close friends of Harry and Meghan,...

The claim is being made in the bombshell book “Finding Freedom,” written by royal reporters Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.

    After all the sound and fury, at last the book itself – delivered to my desk via the click of a computer mouse as if the risk of handling it might be every bit as explosive as the bombshell revelations it was said to contain. How do we know this? Because the 'fact-driven' authors say so themselves, claiming that Finding Freedom is the fruit of hundreds of hours of conversations and interviews with 'more than 100 sources'. But after ploughing through all 354 pages many will be left wondering if those numbers are mere window dressing and that there are actually only two sources who mattered – Harry and Meghan themselves. Certainly, page after page drips with self-pity and indignation...

    'It's time for me to pay for all the things I've done in my life,' Jose Martinez told the stunned detective. Martinez had just confessed to murdering 36 people in California and across the United States. It was June 2013 and the man known as the 'Black Hand' or 'El Mano Negra' in Spanish told police he was a drug cartel enforcer who first killed as payback for his half sister's murder in the late 1970s and then mostly for money starting in 1980, according to a new book, The Devil's Harvest.   If Martinez's claims are true, he is a serial killer in the same league as Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy, Jessica Garrison, the book's author and an investigative...
    (CBS Local)– Robert P. Jones has been studying and writing about religion for decades and his new Simon & Schuster book “White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity” will force many in and out of religious circles to reckon with the past of the United States of America.

    Madeleine Westerhout didn't want Donald Trump to be the Republican Party's nominee. She didn't vote for him in the general election. But after getting to meet the president-elect, she began to question whether she had been wrong about him. "Honestly, my very first interaction with him was so positive, that I thought, 'Wow, I definitely misjudged him, and I need to be more careful about what I believe because I think that not everything the press says is absolutely accurate,'" the 29-year-old former White House official told the Washington Examiner in an interview on Monday. That meeting happened after Trump became the nominee in November 2016. Westerhout was working for the Republican National Committee at the time as the...
    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bombshell biography Finding Freedom has taken a swipe at Prince William and Kate Middleton's decision to have live-in help, revealing that the Sussexes didn't want the same for their family. The book, out today and co-authored by journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, details how the Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 39, decided not to have any live-in staff. Instead, Harry and Meghan first hired a night nurse for their son Archie, now one, but were 'forced to let her go' during her second shift 'for being unprofessional' before 'requesting a nanny to work weekdays', according to the authors. However, it is now thought that Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, a former social worker, is acting as an 'unofficial nanny'...
    The Duchess of Sussex was the victim of 'racist and sexist tropes' in Britain from commentators and royal courtiers who were resistant to change, the author of the controversial new biography Finding Freedom claimed today. Omid Scobie's book was finally released today after weeks of revelations from its pages telling Harry and Meghan's side of the Megxit story. It offers highly personal insights - although Scobie and co-author Carolyn Durand claim they did not interview Harry and Meghan, and the couple did not co-operate. They do say, however, that 'many' friends gave them details for the book and that every revelation is confirmed by at least two sources. Scobie said the authors 'had a lens to the couple through their friends...
    For The Daily Beast's membership drive, we're asking our reporters and editors to tell the stories behind some of their biggest stories. Barely a year into this administration, when the two of us—Daily Beast investigative reporter Lachlan Markay and White House correspondent Asawin Suebsaeng—were first approached to write a book on the era of President and racist game-show host Donald J. Trump, we were asked if we wanted to co-author something on the “adults in the room.” This meant: the president’s lieutenants who encouraged stability and maintained a respectable moral code against the backdrop and foreground of Trump’s tumult, vulgarity, and omnishambles. (Think: your Rex Tillersons, your John Kellys, your James Mattises… I guess.) We politely turned down the assignment...
    Meghan Markle's faith plays a central role in her life while prayer and conversations with God have got her through the 'darkest moments', a source claims in Finding Freedom. In the hotly-anticipated biography by authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, which is out today, the insider claims the Duchess of Sussex's 'spirituality' saw her gather her Suits castmates for a 'prayer circle' before they began filming.  According to the source, who is reportedly a close friend and has often prayed with Meghan, 39, both she and Harry have been on a 'journey of faith together' during their relationship. The Sussexes, who stepped down as working royals in March after a series of final engagements in the UK, recently moved to...

    “After the Last Border: Two Families and the Story of Refuge in America,” by Jessica Goudeau, (Viking) In this book we take a journey into American culture through the eyes of Mu Naw from Myanmar, and Hasna from Syria. Mu Naw arrived in 2007; Hasna in 2016, both as refugees and both unwittingly arriving as America is arguing the depth and breadth of immigration. Author Jessica Goudeau employs a storytelling tactic called “narrative non-fiction,” derived from immersive reporting but containing scene-setting the author may not have witnessed. For example, one chapter concludes with “Then she snapped the towel once briskly and laid it over the wooden dowel to dry.” That came not from direct observation but from hundreds of...

    The list of ex-staffers of President Donald Trump’s administration who have written tell-alls includes James Comey, former F.B.I. director; Omarosa Manigault Newman, former assistant to the president; and John Bolton, former national security adviser. (Photo illustration by Tony Cenicola; photograph by Doug Mills/The New York Times) It was the summer of 2016, and the Republican Party was about to nominate Donald Trump for president. Until then, many party members had aggressively opposed his candidacy. “I think he’s crazy,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said earlier that year. “I think he’s unfit for office.” But faced with the inevitable reality of Trump, the party was forced to perform what the British tabloids call a “reverse-ferret” — a messaging U-turn in which...

    Yale University historian Timothy Snyder condemned President Donald Trump’s militarized federal crackdown on protests in Portland and other U.S. cities, likening the Draconian moves to those of dictators and authoritarian leaders he studied for his book On Tyranny. Appearing on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams on Friday, Snyder discussed the heavily armed response the Trump administration resorted to in Portland and the shocking images of the violent clashes with protestors, some of whom were snatched off the street by unnamed agents and whisked away in unmarked vans. “Your book enumerates so much of what we’ve seen, I should hasten to add, before we saw it,” the MSNBC host said, referring to Snyder’s prescient, 2017 book on tyrannical political leaders. “Buildings with the...

    “Lies have always been a part of politics, but today defamation has replaced actual debate,” says conservative columnist Kurt Schlichter. In “The 21 Biggest Lies about Donald Trump (and you!),” (Regnery), out now, Schlichter — a US Army colonel turned trial lawyer and TV commentator — mounts an enthusiastic defense of President Trump and his supporters. “The liars want to build a false narrative that morally disenfranchises you,” Schlichter writes to Trump voters in his book. “They can defame us without our consent, but they can’t beat us unless we let them.” Here are eight of the 21 “lies” Schlichter examines in his new book … ‘Trump Is Literally a Nazi’ The term “Nazi” no longer means a follower...
    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle abandoned an audacious plan to ambush the Queen with their decision to quit as senior royals, it was revealed last night. The disillusioned couple had agreed on a Christmas retreat in Canada they would part ways with The Firm and wished to tell Her Majesty in person. But when they were denied an immediate audience, Harry 'toyed with the idea' of driving straight from the airport to Sandringham to confront his grandmother. Extracts from Finding Freedom, the biography serialised in the Times and Sunday Times, claim the Duke backed off the idea because the spectacular breach of royal protocol would have further 'ruffled feathers'. A source close to the couple told authors Omid Scobie and...
