John Krasinski is getting slammed on social media for selling Some Good News to CBS.

As it turns out, John Krasinski was offered big money for Some Good News right after the first episode premiered on YouTube.

The show is dedicated entirely to good news, but a lot of fans do not think it's very good news that Krasinski has sold the show.

One person on social media had a rather harsh take on John Krasinski selling Some Good News.

She says, "Remember when he created this free feel good YouTube show to 'make people feel good' and now he is... selling it for $$$?

It doesn't look good on the surface, but John Krasinski more than likely knows what he is doing with this new venture.

John Krasinski will no longer serve as the host of Some Good News, but he will remain on board as a producer. »

Tsai said if there were a “change in the situation” in Hong Kong, the act laying out those rules could be revoked.

Beijing would inevitably see any move by Taiwan regarding Hong Kong as Taipei again siding with the protest movement, sparking further Chinese ire.

Taiwan has no law on refugees that could be applied to Hong Kong protesters who seek asylum on the island. »
