*Six young girls from Mechanicsville, Virginia got their Junior League softball team disqualified from a national tournament by putting their middle fingers up in a photo one of them posted to Snapchat with the caption “watch out host.” 

The Atlee team of 12-to-14-year-olds won a Junior League World Series game in Kirkland, Washington, Friday by a score of one to nothing. Saturday, after the photo was posted, they were disqualified from the tournament for violating “policies regarding unsportsmanlike conduct.”

While the team issued a lengthy apology, coach Chris Mardigian called the surly gestures a retaliation to "harassment” by members of the losing Kirkland team. And, in fact, a player and coach on Kirkland were ejected after being caught stealing and relaying Atlee’s signals. 


Sessions’ Deputy AG Is Not In Step With Punishing Journalists For Leaks-

It seems even the Justice Department can’t stick with a united message.

Reporters who publish leaked information likely won't face federal prosecution. That word from the number-two person at the Justice Department. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein tells "Fox News Sunday" anyone caught spilling white House secrets will be fair game. Rosenstein says "we're after leakers, not the journalists." And, he added, "We're after the people who are committing crimes. We don't prosecute journalists for doing their jobs."

The deputy AG also noted "Generally speaking, reporters who publish information are not committing a crime," Rosenstein said. "There might be a circumstance where they do. You know, I've not seen any of those to date, but I wouldn't rule it out"Rosenstein's comments differ from remarks by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that reporters could become a new target in the Trump administration's war on leakers.
