The other major stories this week are following up on the health care debacle and the fallout from Donald Trump’s tweets attacking MSNBC co-host Mika Brzezinski. See how media is closing out the week below.

The major stories:


Lede: Four to six people were believed to be wounded on Friday in a shooting at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital in New York, according to a New York Police Department spokeswoman.

A shooter is dead at the hospital, according to a tweet from NYPD Assistant Commissioner for Communication & Public Information J. Peter Donald.

Police have no confirmed information on the number of people injured or their conditions, said NYPD spokeswoman Annette Shelton.


NBC News: “W.H. Leveraged Tabloid Story to Demand Apology, ‘Joe’ Hosts Say

Lede: MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski Friday accused the White House of threatening them with a negative tabloid story as a way to extract an apology for their tough comments on President Donald Trump.

In an op-ed article in the Washington Post, and then in a live appearance on “Morning Joe,” the couple said top White House officials warned them earlier this year that the National Enquirer was planning an exposé about their relationship, and urged them to beg Trump to get the paper to back off.


New York Times: “Trump Stirs Pot on Health Bill: Repeal Now, Replace Later

Lede: With Senate Republicans already bogged down over how to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, President Trump on Friday tossed in a new complication with an old idea, suggesting the Senate could repeal President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement now, then replace it later.


Washington Post: Republicans grow increasingly anxious about heading home without a health plan

Lede: The dispute within the Republican Party over health care widened further Friday, as President Trump joined with a handful of conservative senators in calling for an outright repeal of the Affordable Care Act if the party fails to agree on an alternative plan by the end of the July Fourth recess.
