Actress Margot Robbie says she created an anonymous Twitter account and followed as many young right-wing American women as she could find on the digital medium. The 29-year-old actress created the account to understand her character in the fictional Fox News reporter Kayla Pospisil in Jay Roach's upcoming drama Bombshell. "I didn't grow up watching Fox News, and I didn't grow up in the same place as (Kayla)… I was struggling to understand that point of view for a while, and Twitter ended up being the most useful tool," Robbie told ew.com.

IMAGE: 'Pakistan doesn't need F-16s to counter terrorism,' says foreign and defence policy analyst Michael Rubin, 'it needs F-16s to mount attacks against India.' Notwithstanding a chorus of influential US Senators, scholars and policy wonks in leading think-tanks voicing strong opposition to the Obama administration's decision to provide Pakistan eight F-16 fighter jets, when it came to a vote on a resolution aimed at blocking the sale, the full Senate pushed it to the backburner by a vote of 71-24.
