CNN Poll: Most Biden detractors say he's done nothing they like since becoming president

Nearly 6 in 10 Americans disapprove of how Joe Biden is handling his presidency, with most of that group saying there's literally nothing Biden has done since taking office that they approve of.

Why LGBTQ+ people are worried about the Beijing Winter Games

Opinion: The spectacular rise and fall of Aaron Rodgers

This weekend, Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers did get "canceled" -- but it still wasn't by a "woke mob."

Yet it wasn't until Saturday night, after the San Francisco 49ers pulled off a stunning upset to beat Rodgers and his favored Packers in the NFL playoffs, that it became clear just how much public support Rodgers has lost.

After the Omicron wave, here's what experts say could come next

Picture a not-too-distant future when you can book that summer trip to Italy or you don't have to remember to take off your mask for graduation photos.

Analysis: The news about Omicron isn't as good as it may seem

Omicron is causing a tsunami, not a wave, of infections in the United States. We've learned a lot about this coronavirus variant since it was identified less than two months ago. We know that Omicron is highly transmissible and now accounts for nearly all new Covid cases, having pushed Delta into the background. Omicron causes far less severe disease than Delta, especially among people who are fully vaccinated and boosted. And it appears that the current spike in Covid-19 cases driven by Omicron may subside nearly as quickly as it rose.

But experts say the PCR test isn't the best one for every situation.

Opinion: I was relieved when my sons got mild Covid-19. Then I thought about this

Covid-19 continues its rampage across the US with the Omicron coronavirus variant spreading here, then there, then everywhere. Two months ago, the US had less than 100,000 new cases diagnosed each day; now the number is over 600,000, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, with no signs of slowing down.
