Last November Donald Trump in a tweet talked about a competition called "Fake News Trophy" among the news channels. It's an obvious stunt, a finger in the media's collective eye, and the president's fans will love it.

Gutekunst was introduced to the Packers as an intern in the team's scouting department in the summe rof 1997, and was hired as a full-time employee by Ron Wolf on December 30, 1998. Gutekunst was in the running to replace Ted Thompson in Green Bay, so it can not be ruled out that he will be promoted to general manager. Prior to coming to Green Bay, Gutekunst spent a season as a scouting assistant with the Chiefs.

Tesla Just Announced The Latest Model 3 Production Delay
For the entire past year, the shares of the NASDAQ-listed electric vehicle maker rose 45.70% following a 10.97% slump in 2016. Still, it was able to complete the cross-country journey in just 50 hours, using $100 to charge their Model 3 in that time.

Green Bay reached out to Seattle, according to reports, and requested an interview with Schneider, but were denied the opportunity by the Seahawks. The offense struggled after two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers missed nine games because of a collarbone injury. He's been the Director of Player Personnel the last two seasons. In addition to Gutekunst's promotion, another familiar face, Joe Philbin, is reportedly returning for a second stint under coach Mike McCarthy after serving as offensive coordinator from 2007-2011.
