The Morning Ticker: Will, ‘Hill,’ Pelley

  • The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has dropped Fox News contributor George Will from its columnist ranks after he wrote a column on rape and progressivism. “The column was offensive and inaccurate; we apologize for publishing it,” the paper’s editor wrote.

  • MSNBC airs another edition of “Taking the Hill” Sunday at 1pmET. Host and Iraq War veteran Patrick Murphy interviews actor Martin Sheen—whose brother is a Vietnam veteran—about the importance of group recovery for struggling veterans.

  • Scott Pelley reported from Jordan last night for “CBS Evening News,” where he’s on assignment covering a refugee camp holding Syrian refugees. “Once they saw the cut in the border, they surged ahead, as though one more second in Syria would claim their children,” Pelley said about 300 refugees who trekked to Jordan.
