Justin Gatlin says he will boycott the BBC and other British media outlets in protest at their “biased” reports of the 100m final in Beijing.The American, who has twice been suspended for doping, won a silver medal behind Usain Bolt. The race had been built up as a battle between “good and evil” in some quarters.“He’s saved his title, he’s saved his reputation – he may have even saved his sport,” BBC commentator Steve Cram said as Bolt crossed the line just 0.01 seconds ahead of favourite Gatlin. Twitter footage showed commentators from the corporation celebrating Bolt’s win, while Gatlin is understood to have avoided three different interviewers from the broadcaster afterwards. Gatlin’s agent, Renaldo Nehemiah, told the Guardian: “Justin, as well as I, feel that the British media and journalists have been extremely unkind to him.There’s been nothing positive said about him now for some time. Every characterisation is solely about doping and vilifying him. “So, to maintain his own dignity and self-respect, he feels it best not to speak to them.It’s very unfortunate, but he’s been hurt tremendously by these attacks. And as human beings, we should be better than that. “The BBC in particular should report without lacing their comments and reporting with biased views.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

President Trump likens the House impeachment inquiry to a “lynching.” He tweeted the controversial reference this morning and said Democrats are denying him due process, fairness or any legal rights. Trump added — “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here…But we will WIN!” The African American lawmaker asked — “Do you know how many people who look like me have been lynched, since the inception of this country, by people who look like you?” Rush demanded that Trump delete his tweet. Illinois Democrat Bobby Rush fired back on Twitter, saying — “You think this impeachment is a LYNCHING? What the hell is wrong with you?”

Forman has since been arrested and is charged with first and third-degree murder. A Pennsylvanian man is currently facing several charges after authorities say he beat his girlfriend to death over an alleged text message she received from her ex-boyfriend.The incident occurred Sunday at the suspect’s Perkiomen Township home.According to the report, the suspect 23-year-old Nicholas Forman, drove the body of his girlfriend 22-year-old Sabrina Harooni to a hospital in an Uber.Nurses immediately began working on Harooni whom they say was ice cold, had bruising around her neck, and who’s pupils were described as “blown out.”Officials also said that Harooni was dressed only in loose sweatpants and a puffer jacket and that when her pants were later removed, wood chips spilled out.As authorities were investigating the incident, an Uber driver who drove the couple home the night before told them that the couple had gotten into an argument after Harooni joked about receiving a text message from her ex. The driver told authorities that Forman became increasingly aggressive and at one point, Harooni claimed that he was scaring her. The driver told authorities that he dropped the couple off and drove up the street but returned later with his window’s down so he could hear the argument. The driver says Forman demanded Harooni’s phone and would not let her in the house until she gave it to him. The driver says he waited until he could no longer hear arguing and then drove away.The next morning Forman called another Uber and rushed Harooni to the hospital.During a police interview, Forman told authorities that Harooni had gotten into an argument with three girls at a bar and gave the girls his address to come fight her later. Forman also told authorities that he did not want to get involved in the altercation because he was on probation for a 2017 DUI but that though his girlfriend was beat up, she went to bed fine.It wasn’t until the morning that he realized something was wrong.During a search of the property and of Harooni phone, however, authorities found evidence that Forman was actually behind Harooni’s death. In addition to hair matching Harooni’s in the driveway and her blood and dirt on clothing and different items in the house, authorities also found a video of Forman on Harooni’s phone yelling at what seems to be her unconscious body. In the video Forman can be heard saying ” that’s what cheaters get.”Officials also say that Forman claimed that Harooni was still breathing when he brought her to the hospital which differed from what both nurses and doctors told police.(Viewer Discretion Advised.)
