No, Barr was not part of a secret plot against President Trump.

Not long after Attorney General William P. Barr said on Tuesday that the Justice Department had found no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the election last month, the pro-Trump media world began circulating a falsehood about him. In this telling, Mr. Barr had been part of a plot by a secret cabal of elites against President Trump all along.

The most prominent right-wing personality who spread the baseless narrative was the Fox Business host Lou Dobbs. In his nightly show monologue on Tuesday, Mr. Dobbs said that Mr. Barr must be “either a liar or a fool or both” and suggested that he was “perhaps compromised.” Mr. Dobbs added that Mr. Barr “appeared to join in with the radical Dems and the deep state and the resistance.”

Mr. Dobbs’s unfounded accusation inspired dozens of Facebook posts and more than 14,000 likes and shares on the social network, as well

Tech Interactive’s New President Focuses On Virtual Learning Offerings

By J.L. Odom

The coronavirus pandemic has forced myriad businesses and institutions to redefine how and where they provide goods and services, but few have faced challenges more daunting than San Jose’s Tech learning center.

That’s because The Tech Interactive, as the organization is formally known, is at its core a hands-on learning center, offering technology based exhibits, labs and field trips.

Yet, with hands-on in person off the table for now, The Tech is showing itself up to the challenge, having performed a remarkable pivot to remote learning – and to making that learning available to a wide audience, including those without home computers.


In late October, The Tech welcomed a new president and CEO, Katrina Stevens, whose 25 years of experience include stints as a deputy director in the U.S. Department of Education and, most recently, director of learning for the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
