Tease: Coming up in ___________ minutes, Biden hints at changing filibuster 

President Biden said he’s open to ending the filibuster on voting rights legislation, just not now with so many critical domestic measures on the line. Biden participated in a CNN town hall last night in Baltimore. He also pledged to use the National Guard to address supply chain issues. Which White House aides walked back as soon as Grandpa president went to bed. (Additional Out) Adding, basically I’ll do whatever it takes to improve my 37% approval rating. 

Tease: In ___­­­­___ minutes, this actor was involved in a major accident on a movie set 

A director of photography was killed and a movie director hospitalized after Alec Baldwin discharged a prop firearm on the movie set for the upcoming film Rust yesterday. Detectives in New Mexico are trying to figure out how and what type of projectile got discharged. The Sheriff’s Office said the investigation ‘remains open and active’ and no charges have been filed. Baldwin was reportedly so distraught he had to call his daughter to curse her out. (Additional Out) Luckily for Baldwin he’s rich and famous so even if he did something wrong he won’t face any consequences. 

Tease: Coming up at ­­­­­­­­­­­­_____, a new round of booster endorsements from the CDC 

The CDC endorsed booster doses of Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, giving Americans three options for approved boosters now. They also said that its fine to mix and match vaccine doses. The moves allow millions more Americans to begin getting booster shots today. Except for those who flew to Russia to get their sketchy one. (Additional out) Fortunately a full half of the country trusts the CDC. 

Tease: In _____ minutes, Lego unveils a replica for this iconic movie house 

You can recreate the iconic house from Home Alone this holiday season. Lego unveiled a replica set for the house from the classic 1990 film that’ll come out November 1st and cost $250. The 3,955-piece set includes little figures such as Kevin, Marv, Harry and old man Marley. Other items include Kevin’s tree house, a pizza from Little Nero’s and the blow torch that burned the hairs off Harry’s head. I like that they took the time to include the booby traps Kevin McCallister tortured the world’s worst criminals with. (Additional out) Sounds like a great way to spend three days building something your dog will immediately destroy.
