Everybody's watching James Comey testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee today. But the headlines from right-leaning and left-leaning news organizations tell a different story.

Why it matters: The far-right is eager to clear Trump's name, pointing to Comey's comments about Trump wanting the Russia investigation to find any of his "satellites" who might be colluding with Russia and that the President himself was not under investigation. Meanwhile, the far-left is looking for signs of obstruction, lies and criminality based on Comey's testimony.

Right:
  • Breitbart: JAMES COMEY CORROBORATES TRUMP NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION, DID NOT PRESSURE HIM TO DROP RUSSIA PROBE
  • National Review: Again, Pressure is not Obstruction
  • Daily Caller: Comey: 'No' Trump didn't ask me to stop investigation
  • The Blaze: Comey: Lynch directed me to downplay Clinton email probe
Left:
  • Huffington Post: Lying Trump W.H. 'defamed' me
  • Buzzfeed: "Lies, plain and simple"
  • ThinkProgress: Comey suggests there's some truth to allegations in the explosive Trump dossier
  • Mother Jones: Comey Blasts Trump Administration: "Those Were Lies, Plain and Simple"

Las Vegas Raiders player Carl Nassib becomes the first active NFL player in history to come out as gay on Monday.

Why it matters: The NFL has "plenty of" members of the LGTBQ community, but the vast majority are closeted due to fear that their identity will negatively impact their career, former NFL player Ryan O'Collaghan told Reuters in 2019.

A coalition of airline industry partners asked the Justice Department on Monday to begin prosecuting disruptive passengers.

Why it matters: Increased political divisions and conflict over pandemic guidelines have led the Federal Aviation Administration to take some form of enforcement action over 400 times in the first five months of 2021, compared to 146 in all of 2019, according to the coalition.
