Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib. Photo: Safvan Allahverdi/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images

Rep. Rashida Tlaib's (D-Mich.) profanity about impeaching President Trump received five times more coverage on cable news than Rep. Steve King's (R-Iowa) questioning of why white supremacy is considered offensive, according to data collected by the liberal non-profit Media Matters for America.

Details: Tlaib's call to "impeach the mother***er" got more than two-and-a-half hours of air time from MSNBC, CNN and Fox News, 24 hours after the comment was made. The bulk of the coverage came from Fox News, which devoted 52 minutes to Tlaib. King's comments on white supremacy received less than 30 minutes of cable news time from the same three outlets in the first 24 hours. Fox News covered it for 42 seconds.

Why it matters: It's the latest example of China responding furiously to U.S. attempts to shed light on human rights abuses in places like Hong Kong, Xinjiang and Tibet, which Chinese officials routinely condemn as "interference" in domestic affairs.

The latest: The cauldron in Tokyo has been lit, formally kicking off the Olympic Games. Tennis star Naomi Osaka had the honor of carrying the Olympic torch to light the cauldron.

Cleveland Indians change name to "Guardians"

The Cleveland Indians baseball team announced Friday that it will change its name to the "Guardians," following years of activism and protests against a moniker considered offensive by many Native Americans.

Why it matters: It's the first time the team will change its name since 1915, a move that comes in the wake of the nationwide racial reckoning that began with the murder of George Floyd.
