    On today's episode of News O'Clock, we're discussing:

    2. The unemployment rate dropped in the US, but the number of jobs added is...not ideal.

    3. More immigrants have died in ICE custody than at any point since 2006.

    4. A League of Their Own is being made into a TV show, which is a home run in our books.

    5. Kylie Jenner showed up in Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s new music video and the internet is feeling some type of way about it.

    And we're weirdly psyched that the US is getting its own version of Eurovision! The American Song Contest will be happening during the holiday season of 2021, pitting all 50 states against each other in a battle for musical supremacy. Think American Idol but the stakes are WAY higher.
