On CNN this weekend, as police reform protests were going on all over the country, four commentators decided to send a message of solidarity with protesters trying to achieve equal rights in the hands of our justice system.

4 CNN Hosts Have A Thoughtful Opinion About Something Complex And Make Me Happy

Margaret Hoover (a Republican who worked in the Bush White House), Sally Kohn, Sunny Hostin, and Mel Robbins had something to say about this weekend's protests. It caused a bit of controversy for reasons that don't surprise me but do annoy me. They didn't dismiss or attack protesters for speaking out. They spoke out with them. I don't think I've ever seen pundits do that.

Seeing a group of opinionated pundits from both sides of the aisle taking an actual shared position on issues that aren't often covered in a way that shows sympathy to victims is awesome. Having pundits behave like actual humans and not like walking talking points for political parties is also awesome. We should reward good behavior. Maybe tweet about it so CNN knows to keep embracing more smart stuff like this? I'll owe you one.

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

Anti-gay sentiment in the U.S. military goes as far back as 1778 when Lieutenant Frederick Gotthold Enslin was convicted at court-martial on charges of sodomy and perjury. The military would go on to make sodomy a crime in 1920 and worthy of dishonorable discharge.

In 1949 the Department of Defense standardized its anti-LGBT regulations across the military, declaring: "Homosexual personnel, irrespective of sex, should not be permitted to serve in any branch of the Armed Forces in any capacity, and prompt separation of known homosexuals from the Armed Forces is mandatory."
