Hour 1: Cenk & Ana. AT&T plans to lay off and fire more than a thousand workers starting early next year. Across the Midwest, an estimated 600 workers were notified they were being laid off by the company on December 16, a week before AT&T announced it was doling out $1,000 bonuses to 200,000 of its employees in celebration of the Republican Party’s tax overhaul. An appeals court Tuesday said that a privacy group suing President Trump’s so-called voter fraud commission was not itself a voter, and thus could not bring a claim alleging that the commission had failed to protect voters’ privacy in seeking states’ voter roll data.
Hour 2: #1 cause of stress of Americans. American Airlines has apologized to two black professional basketball players who were kicked off a plane in Dallas after a flight attendant accused them of stealing blankets. Vanity Fair has apologized for a video in which six of its Hive editors attempted to make arch New Year’s resolutions for Hillary Clinton, while sipping champagne.
