Last week we noticed reported on the reappearance of the WHIH Newsfront coverage of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Last week's coverage ended on the rumor that General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross (William Hurt) would enter the world of politics.
Today that coverage is continued with Ross being nominated for Secretary of State by President Matthew Ellis (William Sadler).
In fact, WHIH got a big scoop with an interview with President Ellis:
Before that, there were several tweets that Marvel fans may be interested in posted throughout the week. For example:
