Chicago Cubs, Leslie Jones, Kings of Leon, AT&T, Donald Trump, Reince Priebus: HOT LINKS

CUBS WIN NLCS. Chicago to go to World Series for first time since 1945! “Wrigleyville erupted in a joyous celebration Saturday night when the Cubs’ 71-year World Series wait at long last came to an end. When Yasiel Puig hit into a double play for the final outs of Saturday night’s 5-0 victory over the Dodgers in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series, the Cubs sealed a date with the Indians in the 2016 Fall Classic, beginning Tuesday night in Cleveland.”

PURCHASES. AT&T says it will buy Time Warner for $85.4 billion: “The proposed deal is likely to spur yet more consolidation among media companies, which have already looked to partners to get bigger. This year, Lionsgate struck a deal to buy the pay-TV channel Starz for $4.4 billion. And the Redstone family, which controls both CBS and Viacom, has urged the corporate siblings, which split 10 years ago, to consider reuniting. AT&T and Time Warner said both of their boards unanimously approved the deal.”

MERGER. Clinton administration might be skeptical…

CYBER ATTACK. Friday’s massive DDoS attack used new methods: “And in a troubling development, the attack appears to have relied on hundreds of thousands of internet-connected devices like cameras, baby monitors and home routers that have been infected — without their owners’ knowledge — with software that allows hackers to command them to flood a target with overwhelming traffic.”

POST-DEBATE. Hillary adds to her burn book:

RNC CHAIR REINCE PRIEBUS. Trump will win. “What I think the media is missing here is that, to ask a candidate three weeks before the election if they are going to concede — asking for a concession speech — no one does that,” Priebus said. “And I think if . . . you lose by 200 votes in Florida, are you going to concede on election night if you’re at 260 electoral votes?”

YOU ARE SO SUED. Donald Trump says he’ll sue his accusers: “Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. Total fabrication,” the Republican presidential nominee said Saturday afternoon. “The [alleged] events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”

WISE-GUY. Trump sent this letter to the L.A. Times in 2007:

SCOTLAND. Suddenly, gay politicians are okay: “In the span of a generation, Scotland has shed much of its traditional social conservatism and enthusiastically embraced diversity in sexuality, a process led and reinforced by a remarkable transformation in its political culture.”

WEST’S DECLINE? The Russian Embassy mocks West’s decline -and ties it to LGBT rights, in tweeted cartoon.

BRITAIN. Judge removes seven-year-old boy from custody of woman: “The judge said the woman had been “absolutely convinced” the youngster “perceived himself as a girl” and was determined that he should be a girl. He said the boy was now living with his father, who is separated from the woman. The youngster still saw his mother.”

FLORIDA. Orlando, St. Petersburg and Wilton Manors get perfect scores of 100 in the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index: “Only 60 cities nationwide got a top score. Criteria include non-discrimination laws; benefits offered to municipal workers, such as transgender-inclusive insurance coverage; and support for pro-equality laws by public officials. The lowest-scoring cities in Florida were Cape Coral and Port St. Lucie.”

LESLIE JONES. SNL comic responds to being hacked:

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE DAY. Kings of Leon covers Selena Gomez’s “Hands to Myself”.

SUNDAY STUD. Touya Xiao.
