1 – BREAKING: Will Smith Resigns From Academy Over Chris Rock Oscars Slap Backlash
Variety reports: Will Smith, facing possible expulsion or suspension after he assaulted Chris Rock during last Sunday’s Oscars telecast, has instead resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. The move comes as the actor is embroiled in the gravest crisis of his career and as the organization behind the Academy Awards has struggled in its attempts to deal with the fallout from the altercation. In a statement, Smith called his actions “shocking, painful and inexcusable” and said that he will accept any additional consequences that the Academy’s Board of Governors deems appropriate.
“The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home,” Smith said. “I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. I am heartbroken.”
Smith also acknowledged that his actions overshadowed other winners at the 94th Academy Awards.
“I want to put the focus back on those who deserve attention for their achievements and allow the Academy to get back to the incredible work it does to support creativity and artistry in film,” he stated, concluding with “change takes time and I am committed to doing the work to ensure that I never again allow violence to overtake reason.”

2 – Border Patrol Agents Accused Of ‘Whipping’ Cleared Of Criminal Misconduct, Union Chief Says
The Daily Caller reports: National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told the Daily Caller News Foundation that the border agents accused of “whipping” migrants in September were cleared of criminal misconduct amid an ongoing investigation into the incident.
“The only reason that we know that they were cleared is because OPR [Office of Professional Responsibility] started their investigation and they compelled them to give a statement,” Judd told the DCNF. “Once you compel somebody to give a statement, you can’t take criminal action against them.”
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), nor Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed Judd’s statement.
“We will share the results of the investigation once it is complete and provide updates, as available, consistent with the need to protect the integrity of the investigation and individuals’ privacy,” a DHS spokesperson told the DCNF, providing a link to a November press release that was last updated in January, stating that the DHS inspector general declined to conduct the investigation and handed it over to CBP’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR).
Hey @jrpsaki, @JoeBiden, @SecMayorkas – when are you going to issue a public apology for your lies smearing these @CBP agents for “whipping?” #ImpeachMayorkas #ApologizeNow https://t.co/dXE2ZNo1Qx

If any adverse action is taken against these border patrol agents who were doing their job to secure the border then Texas will offer them a job to help TX do the federal government job to secure the border
These agents should be praised not persecutedhttps://t.co/5hdau5yN4G

3 – Psaki dismisses ethics concerns over reports she’s leaving White House for MSNBC
The Washington Examiner reports: White House press secretary Jen Psaki sought to reassure reporters she has received rigorous ethical counseling after news she is in exclusive talks with MSNBC to join the network and that they are close to a deal.
“I have always gone over and above the stringent ethical requirements of the Biden administration,” Psaki said Friday. “So I hope that all of you, I’ve been working with all of you for some time, would judge me for my record and how I treat all of you both in the briefing room and otherwise.”
At the same time, Psaki declined to confirm the May move, with no contracts signed. She was rumored to be negotiating with CNN and MSNBC.
“Well, you can’t get rid of me yet,” she said. “I have nothing to confirm about my length of public service or planned service or anything about consideration about next plans.”
(Psaki was confronted by multiple reporters about the ethics of her talks with MSNBC while she’s still at the White House.). WATCH BELOW:
