The Harvey Weinstein Hollywood sex scandal dominated the news cycle this week, as over 20 women publicly accused the media mogul of sexual harassment and assault—a massive revelation. However, as a result of the swarm of media coverage, several significant stories fell under the radar.

Here are 5 critical stories being ignored while America watches Hollywood burn:

1. Police Have Begun Making Massive Reversals in the Official Vegas Narrative

Police made significant changes to the timeline of the Las Vegas shooting this week, which drastically changed the official narrative. First, the story was that suspect Stephen Paddock encountered Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos in the hallway, and shot him in the leg after he unloaded a volley of bullets into a crowd of 22,000 people at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

In the revised timeline, which is actually backed up by audio that was released this week, Paddock shot Campos at least 6 minutes before he opened fire on the crowd from his window on the 32nd floor, and he fired a total of about 200 rounds into the hallway. A nearby maintenance worker witnessed the scene and reported it, which should have given law enforcement a clear location of exactly where their target was before the massacre officially began.

There have also been reports claiming that after police announced the significant change in the timeline involving Jesus Campos, he has since canceled several media interviews, and his family is under a gag order.

2. Congress is Considering a Law That Will Make The Government’s Spying Powers Permanent

In the days after 9/11, the United States government preyed on the fear felt by many Americans to justify the passage of the USA Patriot Act—a law that gave the government unprecedented spying powers and became a vital component of the “War on Terror.”

Now, one of the most crucial provisions that the government has used to justify spying on innocent Americans is set to expire on Dec. 31, 2017. In response, the USA Liberty Act has become the latest trendy name for a law that would reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which allows “the collection of electronic communications by non-U.S. persons for use in our nation’s defense,” according to the House Judiciary Committee.

However, what the USA Liberty Act does not advertise is the fact that it does not actually address the legitimate problems that exist with Section 702. While the purpose of FISA was reportedly only to allow surveillance on the communications of foreign targets who were suspected terrorists, it has been used to spy on the communications of innocent Americans—despite the practice being ruled illegal—and any reauthorization of the law will only allow the practice to continue under the guise of “defeating terrorism.”
