Three Things You Need to Know on September 7th

September 7, 2018

Today is the fourth day of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings. Day three is over, thankfully, but senators continue to argue over the release of confidential documents.  Kavanaugh answered questions from members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on key issues and prior decisions he's made as a U.S. Appeals Court judge.   

Twitter is permanently suspending conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.  The company cited new reports of tweets and videos that violated its policy of abusive behavior.  Jones is known for pushing conspiracy theories, including the idea that the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre was a hoax. Good riddance.

Get out your Broncos gear, because Mayor Michael Hancock is proclaiming today Orange Friday.  That means everyone is encouraged to wear their orange (and blue) in support of the team.  The Broncos take on the Seahawks on Sunday at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.  Kickoff is set for 2:25 p.m.  It's gonna be a BIG sports weekend here in Denver!
