After losing son, 'American Ninja Warrior' contestant and wife adopt sick baby from same hospital

A family is sharing their story of heartbreak and joy after losing one son and gaining another.

>> Watch the news report here

Katie and Josh Butler of Nashville, Tennessee, welcomed baby boy Dewey in May 2015. He was born with a rare genetic disorder and lived for only 100 days.

The couple told WLBT that it was a devastating time, but the experience of caring for Dewey perfectly prepared them to care for a baby they later adopted from the same hospital.

After Dewey’s death, a nurse told them about another baby at the hospital who had similar medical issues as Dewey, the “Today” show reports. The nurse said the baby’s family abandoned him.

Katie and Josh fostered and adopted the baby boy, Braxtel. He’s now 2 years old. He relies on a breathing tube to get enough oxygen and communicates with his parents through sign language.

“Caring for Brax has not in any way replaced our loss of Dewey,” Josh told “Today.” “Rather, Braxtel has given us a reason to keep fighting and to keep loving. It would be so easy to lose hope and to be depressed. Even though we tend toward selfishness, Braxtel helps us to remember that our lives are not about us first but putting others first.”

Josh competed on “American Ninja Warrior," where people fell in love with the family’s story.

“Through sharing our story on 'ANW,' we want others to know that there is a purpose to your life, that God has a purpose for you, in the good and especially the bad,” Josh said.

Hackers leak 'Game of Thrones' stars' phone numbers, demand ransom

Hackers who targeted HBO last month released a trove of new data on Monday, including a file that appeared to show the phone numbers and other personal details of the stars of “Game of Thrones,” and demanded a ransom under the threat of releasing more sensitive network data, according to multiple reports.

>> Read more trending news

The data dump, comprised of just 3.4 gigabytes of the 1.5 terabytes allegedly stolen by the group, appeared online Monday and included a video ransom note, according to The Associated Press.

In the five-minute video, a “Mr. Smith” tells HBO CEO Richard Plepler that the network has three days to pay a ransom in bitcoins or see hackers release more confidential corporate data and entire unaired seasons of the network’s shows, the AP reported.

One of the documents leaked Monday appeared to include a confidential cast list for “Game of Thrones,” HBO’s wildly popular adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series “A Song of Ice and Fire.” The document included what appeared to be the personal cellphone numbers and email addresses of actors including Emilia Clark, Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey, according to the AP.

 The Verge reported that draft scripts from five “Game of Thrones” episodes, including one scheduled to air this Sunday, were released in the latest data dump. Also leaked were a month’s worth of emails from Leslie Cohen, HBO’s vice president for film programming.

In its ransom letter, the group claimed that it took six months to breach HBO’s security and demanded “our six-month salary in bitcoin,” the AP reported, adding that the group claimed to have earned between $12 million and $15 million each year by stealing information and then blackmailing companies. The group redacted the exact amount of money they were demanding in the ransom letter released Monday.

“Our demand is clear and non-negotiable: We want XXXX dollars to stop leaking your data,” the ransom note from Mr. Smith said in part, Wired reported. “HBO spends $12 million for market research and $5 million for ('Game of Thrones' season 7) advertisements, so consider us another budget for your advertisements!”

In a statement released to Wired, HBO spokesman Jeff Cusson said that the network continues to investigate the data breach.

“The review to date has not given us a reason to believe that our email system as a whole has been compromised,” he told the news site.

HBO officials acknowledged last week that the company had been targeted by hackers who managed to get “proprietary information.” The group behind the cyberattack last week released what appeared to be at least one script from “Game of Thrones” and episodes of the networks’ “Ballers” and “Room 104” series.

In the video letter Monday, the hackers claimed that HBO was the 17th company to be targeted by them and that only three previous targets refused to pay, according to the AP. The group said it spends $500,000 each year to buy exploits that allow them to break into networks before Microsoft and other software companies are aware of the security holes.

It’s an eye-opener for me because it’s made me think long and hard about things I’ve done, and I’ve learned from that. This has all been a shocking experience.”

Fox News suspends Eric Bolling amid lewd photo allegations

Fox News host Eric Bolling has been a constant on the network for several years. He’s a regular co-host on “Specialists” and has written two books – “Wake up America” and “Cashin’ In.”

However, on Friday night, a report emerged claiming that Bolling has been sending lewd photos to co-workers.

The original story, by the Huffington Post, quoted 14 sources from inside Fox News and Fox Business. While not all the women said they had received the messages, they said they had seen them or been informed of their existence by the recipients.

On Saturday, Fox News announced that Bolling had been suspended pending an investigation.

Originally, his attorney offered the following response:

"Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made."

But on Saturday, NBC News reported that the attorney offered a stronger rebuke:

"The anonymous, uncorroborated claims are untrue and terribly unfair. We intend to fully cooperate with the investigation so that it can be concluded and Eric can return to work as quickly as possible."

According to Yashar Ali, the Huffington Post reporter who broke the story, juggernaut law firm Paul Weiss LLP has been brought in to conduct the investigation.

The firm has played a large role in politics. During the 2016 election cycle, it was the seventh-largest donor among law firms and lobbyists, and more than 93 percent of its donations went to Democrats, the Center for Responsive Politics reported.

Asawin Suebsaeng‏, a reporter at The Daily Beast, wrote on Twitter that the text messages “have been an open secret among many at Fox for years.”
