Video: Fox News' Megyn Kelly Cries Voter Fraud About Colorado Rule That Doesn't Exist
Megyn Kelly whips out air quotes in describing a "new Colorado law" on Fox News. Videos and more below.
Does a new Colorado law invite voting fraud by allowing pretty much anyone the ability to print out legal ballots from home computers? That was the argument made by Fox News' Megyn Kelly this week in a video on view below. Only problem: It's not true -- and the person confirming it is none other than Secretary of State Scott Gessler, the Colorado official most identified with raising alarms about the possibility of such fraud. Photos, videos and details below.

Video: ESPN's Skip Bayless Says Kobe Bryant's Colorado Rape Charge Gave Him "Sizzle"

"First Take" host Cari Champion seen trying to decide if killing Skip Bayless live on the air would be a good or bad career move. Video below.
Plenty of Colorado sports fans know ESPN's Skip Bayless as an idiot if only for his advocacy of Tim Tebow as an NFL quarterback even when he wasn't guiding the Broncos to still-inexplicable victories. But Bayless took his usual meatheadedness to heretofore unforeseen levels when he recently suggested during an episode of ESPN's First Take, as seen in a clip on view below, that the reputation of the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant had actually been enhanced by the sexual-assault allegation made against him in Eagle County, Colorado back in 2003. Really.

Video: Incredibles' Bob Eschino on Why It's a Little Late to Ban Most Pot Edibles

Categories: Marijuana, Videos

The latest entry in our marijuana edibles video series arrives at a propitious moment: This week, a Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment official formally recommended that almost all such products be banned. Among the arguments against a change of this magnitude is the demand described by Incredibles owner and edibles working group member Bob Eschino, who says he's currently selling about 60,000 infused chocolate bars every month. Get a behind-the-scenes look at Eschino's operation and his plans for even more growth by clicking here.

Videos: What Are Zen Magnets and Why Is the Federal Government Banning Them?

Anthony Camera
Zen Magnets can be used to make complex shapes.
This week's cover story, "Magnetic Attraction," tells the tale of Zen Magnets, a Denver company founded in 2009 by University of Colorado grad Shihan Qu. The company sells -- you guessed it -- magnets. But these aren't just any magnets. They're tiny, high-powered spherical magnets that can be used to build everything from complex geometric shapes (octahedron cuboctahedron honeycomb, anyone?) to replicas of Super Mario Bros. characters. And last month, they were banned by the federal government.

Below, we've compiled several videos that help tell the story of Zen Magnets.

Denver Police Video Advises Parents Worried Trick-or-Treaters Will Be Given Pot Edibles
An image from the new Denver Police Department video about pot edibles and Halloween. The full clip is below.
Last month, after we shared Denver Police Department concerns about trick-or-treaters possibly receiving pot edibles while trick-or-treating this Halloween, literally hundreds of readers (including these) dismissed such fears as unreasonable and reactionary. But the DPD isn't backing down.

The department has now issued a video in which Urban Dispensary owner Patrick Johnson describes the visual similarities between typical goodies and the infused kind and suggests that any unwrapped candies handed out on Halloween be tossed as a precaution -- the same advice that's been given since he was a kid, he adds. See the video here.

Good Parenting? See Facebook Video of Mom Following Truant Daughter to School

Categories: Videos
Rickilee Durrant in a Facebook video made by her mom, Jeannie Crutchfield. Clips below.
Is posting a humiliating Facebook video okay if it's done by a mom trying to get her allegedly truant daughter to stay in school? That's the question posed by a clip shared by Jeannie Crutchfield, a mom in Casper, Wyoming, that shows her trailing daughter Rickilee Durrant through her high school while declaring that she's going to sit beside the teen during the day's classes to make sure she sticks around.

No surprise that the video went viral and attracted the attention of outlets such as 7News, which racked up around 30,000 views for the three-minute opus on its own Facebook page. But is this the kind of parenting that should be encouraged? Decide for yourself: Below, see the original video (if the box is black, a click should start it playing) and a 7News piece featuring Crutchfield explaining her motives.

Anne Armstrong as seen in one of two videos on view below.
Once upon a time, most gubernatorial candidates shied away from the mention of marijuana unless they were pledging to crack down on it. But now, Glendale Mayor Mike Dunafon and medical marijuana advocate Anne Armstrong are putting pot front and center in their campaigns for the top office in Colorado and Rhode Island, respectively. As we recently noted on our Backbeat blog, Dunafon co-stars alongside hip-hop star Wyclef Jean in a music video that stresses marijuana rights. Meanwhile, Armstrong, a write-in hopeful for the Compassionate Party, proves her devotion to MMJ by firing up on camera. These aren't your grandparents' campaign commercials. Check them out below.
