PARK CITY, Utah (AP) \u2014 Oliva Pope gets a lot of credit for being a powerful woman, but it's the woman behind the fictional character who is helping to create real change in an industry that's woefully lacking in women and people of color behind the camera. Kerry Washington on Monday spoke to a group of women at the Sundance Film Festival's annual Women in Film Brunch, telling guests that progress is going to take \"courage on all of our parts.\"

\"Sometimes the people who are in charge of those rooms, they want us to feel lucky to be in the room. And we are because we're all really blessed to be doing what we do ... but that doesn't mean that I don't get to bring other people with me,\" Washington said. \"Being alone in the room is exhausting ... you feel like you have to stand up for the entire gender or race.\"

Speaking with \"Manchester by the Sea\" producer Kimberly Steward, both women agreed that in order for the system to change, women have to support other women. It's what brought the two together in the first place. Washington remembered reading a profile of Steward, who mentioned Washington as a woman she admired in the business.

\"A woman who shouts out other women? That's just something we all have to do,\" Washington said.

Washington has, in her stead as a producer of things like the HBO movie \"Confirmation,\" has made it a priority to hire other women, people of color and people of the LGBTQ community to work on their sets.

\"(It's) making sure people in society who we've labeled as other have a seat at the table,\" she said.

Earlier in the event, Caroline Libresco, who heads up Women at Sundance, said they'd found the main obstacles to women getting jobs behind the camera were \"access to and knowledge of financing\" and \"male dominated networks.\"

Steward said that producers have to be willing to take more risks, too, while Washington chimed in that it's not a risk to make movies for and about women and people of color.

\"Why do we allow this myth of risk to remain?\" Washington asked. \"And if it doesn't work, who cares? So many movies don't work.\"

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) \u2014 Before winning the most prestigious prize in children's literature, Kelly Barnhill took a little detour.

Barnhill, named Monday as this year's winner of the John Newbery Medal for her fantasy novel \"The Girl Who Drank the Moon,\" started writing children's stories in her late 20s \u2014 after two kids and a yearslong hiatus from the craft she studied as an undergraduate.

\"I was doing all the wacky stuff that early 20s people did,\" Barnhill said in a telephone interview. \"I worked for the National Park Service, I got trained as a volunteer firefighter, I went to Florida for a little while, I fell in love, I had my first baby when I was 25 and moved back to Minnesota, got my teaching license and was really not writing at all during that time.\"

She said she wasn't \"drawn back to the page\" until after she had her second baby girl and began making a dent in a stack of library books, starting with \"The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse\" by Louise Erdrich.

\"That book unlocked something in me and I've been writing ever since,\" she said.

Barnhill started with short stories, which eventually turned into children's novels, including the coming-of-age tale \"The Girl Who Drank the Moon\" and her other critically acclaimed book \"The Witch's Boy.\" Most of her stories start with a sticky conundrum or some sort of fundamental question, she said.

\"The Girl Who Drank the Moon\" started with Barnhill examining how narratives can be manipulated and true stories can be changed into falsehoods. The book is set in a town where the villagers sacrifice a newborn baby each year to a witch because they fear her. But the witch is secretly good and brings those babies to loving families in a town on the other side of the woods.

\"This notion of rumor spreading and of getting the wrong idea about a person,\" she said, \"that's like real stuff for these kids, that's what their life is like right now.\"

These days, the mother of three teaches in Minneapolis for COMPAS, a statewide nonprofit arts education organization. The Newbery award comes after her book was a New York Times bestseller; movie rights were sold in the fall to Fox Animation.

Barnhill said the most rewarding part of being a children's author is discussing the book with kids.

\"It's particularly fun when I go someplace where the kids have already read the book. It's amazing how deep of thinkers they are,\" she said.

Minnesotan author Kate DiCamillo, who won the Newbery Medal winner for her book \"The Tale of Despereaux,\" said she was delighted by Barnhill's win.

Asked what sets apart Barnhill's work, DiCamillo said: \"It's that heart. And the imagination. And the courage to ask big questions.\"

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 U.S. Rep. John Lewis is having quite a run in the literary world.

On Monday, the American Library Association released its annual list of awards for children's books and announced the Georgia Democrat received a record four prizes for \"March: Book Three,\" the last of a graphic trilogy about his civil-rights activism and winner last fall of the National Book Award for young people's literature. The latest honors for \"March,\" a collaboration among Lewis, congressional aide Andrew Aydin and illustrator Nate Powell, include the Coretta Scott King award for best children's book by an African-American and the Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in children's literature. All three \"March\" books recently reached high on best-seller lists after a harsh public exchange between Lewis and President Donald Trump, whose legitimacy Lewis has challenged.

\"I'm delighted and honored that America's librarians are supporting March with these awards,\" Rep. Lewis, 76, said in a statement. \"I love books and I love librarians. When I was growing up I tried to read every single thing I could. I hope these awards will help inspire all of our young people \u2014 and some of us not so young \u2014 to read, to learn, and to act. 'March' is a guidebook reminding us that we all must speak up and stand up for what is right, what is fair, and what is just.\"

Monday's top award, the John Newbery Medal for outstanding children's book overall, was given to Kelly Barnhill for her fairy tale about an abandoned baby with a crescent-shaped birthmark on her forehead, \"The Girl Who Drank the Moon.\" The Randolph Caldecott Medal for best picture book went to \"Radiant Child: The Story of Young Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat,\" illustrated and written by Javaka Steptoe, which also won the Coretta Scott King award for best illustration. The Newbery and Caldecott prizes are the most prestigious in children's literature, with previous winners including Beverly Cleary, Neil Gaiman and Katherine Paterson.

\"I was woken really, really early in the morning to my Wonder Woman ringtone, which is awesome,\" Barnhill told The Associated Press, \"and I answered my phone and it's a room full of super cheerful librarians who are telling me this massive news.\"

The awards were announced during the library association's midwinter meeting in Atlanta, where Lewis is based. The congressman's late wife, Lillian Miles Lewis, was a librarian at Atlanta University.

Rick Riordan, author of the million-selling \"Percy Jackson\" books, won the Stonewall award for \"Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor.\" The Stonewall is given for the best book relating to the LGBT experience. Sarah Dessen, known for such favorites as \"Dreamland\" and \"Along for the Ride,\" and Nikki Grimes, whose books include the prize winners \"Bronx Masquerade\" and \"Words With Wings,\" each received lifetime achievement awards.

Juana Medina's \"Juana & Lucas\" won the Pura Belpre award for best book by a Latino writer and \"Lowriders to the Center of the Earth,\" illustrated by Raul Gonzalez, was the Pura Belpre winner for best illustration.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 White House press secretary Sean Spicer told a roomful of reporters that \"our intention is never to lie to you,\" although sometimes the Trump administration may \"disagree with the facts.\"

Spicer's first full press briefing was closely watched Monday following a weekend statement about President Donald Trump's inauguration audience that included incorrect assertions. After White House counselor Kellyanne Conway received wide social media attention for her explanation that Spicer had presented \"alternative facts,\" Monday's briefing was televised live on CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC and, for a time, even ABC.

Meanwhile, ABC announced that anchor David Muir would interview Trump for a one-hour prime-time special to air at 10 p.m. EST Wednesday.

Spicer tried to defuse tension by opening with a self-deprecating joke about his lack of popularity, and his 78-minute session was wide-ranging and mostly substantive. He corrected one disputed statement from Saturday, defended another and expressed some frustration regarding how the new Trump administration feels about its news coverage.

Asked for a pledge not to lie, Spicer assented, saying, \"I believe we have to be honest with the American people.\" He said he had received incorrect information about Inauguration day ridership on the Washington Metro system when he initially claimed the system was used more Friday than for Barack Obama's 2013 inauguration.

\"There are times when you tweet something out or write a story and you publish a correction,\" he said. \"That doesn't mean you were trying to deceive readers or the American people, does it? I think we should be afforded the same opportunity.\"

Spicer didn't back down from his claim that Trump's inauguration was the most-seen ever, clarifying that he was including people who watched online. The ceremony didn't have the highest TV ratings and aerial photographs indicate the live crowd wasn't as big as it was for Obama's first swearing-in, but there are no reliable crowd estimates or numbers indicating how many people across the world watched the ceremony online.

He expressed frustration about an erroneous report, later corrected, stating that a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. had been removed from a room in the White House following Trump's inauguration.

\"Where was the apology to the president of the United States?\" Spicer said. \"Where was the apology to the millions of people who thought that it was racially insensitive?\"

One reporter said Spicer had accepted an apology from the news outlet that made the mistake in a pool report.

Spicer would not say whether he was ordered by Trump or other staffers to make Saturday's statement, but explained some of the thinking that went into it. Like countless White House staffs before them, the Trump team is exasperated about \"negative\" and \"demoralizing\" coverage.

\"When we're right, say we're right,\" he said. \"When we're wrong, say we're wrong. But it's not always wrong and negative.\"

Spicer broke with the White House tradition of opening briefings with a question from The Associated Press. The AP was traditionally given the first question because it is a broad-based news cooperative that represents the largest swath of American newspapers, broadcasters and other kinds of news organizations.

Instead, Spicer initially called on a reporter from the New York Post, and he took questions from several news organizations that were rarely called on during the previous administration. He said four seats in the briefing room would be kept open for out-of-town reporters to participate via Skype.

The new press secretary \u2014 who took no questions Saturday \u2014 drew a laugh when he said he'd stay at the podium for as long as the reporters wanted him there, and he nearly did.

\"I want to make sure we have a healthy relationship,\" he said.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 A \"Saturday Night Live\" writer has been suspended indefinitely after tweeting a poorly received joke about Donald Trump's 10-year-old youngest son, Barron.

A person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly told The Associated Press that Katie Rich was suspended immediately after writing an offensive tweet about the child. An outcry on social media followed, with many calling for a boycott of the TV show.

Rich later deleted the tweet, deactivated her account but then reactivated it Monday, saying she wanted to \"sincerely apologize\" for the \"insensitive\" tweet and \"deeply regret\" her actions.

NBC had no comment.

Barron found support from Chelsea Clinton, with the former first daughter saying he \"deserves the chance every child does \u2014 to be a kid.\"

This isn't the first time \"SNL\" has gotten in trouble for joking about the president's children. In 1993, then-cast member Mike Myers had to write an apology letter to the Clintons after a skit that mocked Chelsea Clinton.

\"She's a kid, a kid who didn't choose to be in public life,\" ''SNL\" executive producer Lorne Michaels said at the time. He also acknowledged that said his show treated then 9-year-old Amy Carter \"a little rougher\" during the 1970s when Jimmy Carter was in the Oval Office.

The current controversy over Barron Trump comes as President Trump has lashed out at the way \"Saturday Night Live\" has lampooned him, with the president saying Alec Baldwin's semi-regular portrayal of him \"stinks\" and calling one of the skits a \"hit job.\"

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) \u2014 For a long time, nearly all of the animation students at the California Institute of the Arts' were men.

Today, most of CalArts' more than 250 animation students are women, and one of their goals is to create more realistic female characters \u2014 not just the sex bombs, shy nerds and haggard villains that dominate now.

The reason such stereotypes persist, according to Marge Dean, president of the industry group Women in Animation: Men still fill animation's writing rooms and director's chairs.

\"Many, many, many women are going to animation schools,\" said Dean, whose organization tracks figures through schools and industry groups. \"Yet if you start looking at women in creative roles, the last number we have is only 22 percent.\"

In an effort to boost those numbers, CalArts faculty invites studio representatives to campus for events and maintains a close relationship with groups like Dean's, which is pushing the studios to have a creative workforce of half women and half men by 2025.

The school also has played host the past two years to a symposium on gender bias in animation. This year it focused on the roles of \"Sidekicks, Nerd Girls, Tomboys and More.\"

Here, a female CalArts student renders some archetypal cartoon women, and Erica Larsen-Dockray, who teaches a class on \"The Animated Woman,\" explains:

___

THE PRINCESS

She has an impossibly tiny waist and is gorgeous beyond belief. Big eyes, flowing locks, luscious lips and a heart-shaped face. She's historically usually white and depicted as innocent and virginal. About the typical princess' waistline, Larsen-Dockray says: \"If they were life-size, they would not have space in their bodies for reproductive organs.\"

___

THE FAIRY GODMOTHER

She's always plump and rosy-cheeked, with particular emphasis on large breasts and buttocks. \"I think a lot of animators at that time were thinking about their nannies,\" Larsen-Dockray says. \"They're like the epitome of physical comfort, every man-child's dream.\"

___

THE VILLAIN

While male villains can be any shape or size, female villains almost always are old and unmarried. They have gray hair, wrinkles and harsh makeup. They're hardened and sour and always look stern and angry. Visually, they're typically depicted looking almost bony with sharp lines, including high cheekbones and pointy elbows.

___

THE NERD

Many female sidekicks are depicted as nerds. They have glasses, they're shy and awkward, and they often have freckles. They're also usually in a makeover episode at some point, Larsen-Dockray says, as if to remind viewers that they can be feminine. \"It's really messed up,\" she says.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Stephen Colbert will host the annual Emmy Awards telecast, this year to be shown on his home network of CBS.

The annual awards show honoring the best in television will take place on Sept. 17 in Los Angeles.

Colbert is host of the \"Late Show\" on CBS, and the former host of Comedy Central's \"Colbert Report.\" In talking about hosting the 69th Emmy telecast, Colbert made sly reference to the Trump administration's unprovable assertion that Trump's inauguration was the most watched ever.

Said Colbert: \"This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period. Both in person and around the globe.\"

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 Los Angeles prosecutors on Monday charged Soulja Boy with felony weapons violations stemming from a police search of his home last month that found an assault weapon and a stolen police handgun.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced Monday that it had charged the rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way. He pleaded not guilty Monday to two felony weapons possession charges and a misdemeanor count of receiving stolen property. He faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Way was arrested last month by Los Angeles police. He was still on probation for a previous firearms case and was not supposed to possess any weapons.

Prosecutors said a search of his home found a Mini Draco AR-IS assault weapon and a Glock 21 handgun.

Authorities have said the handgun was reported stolen from a Huntington Beach, California, police vehicle.

Soulja Boy is best known for his 2007 hit \"Crank That (Soulja Boy)\" and for his recent appearances on VH1's \"Love and Hip Hop.\"

Attempts to reach a representative for the rapper were not immediately successful and there is no information on whether he has an attorney.

HELSINKI (AP) \u2014 Veljo Tormis, a prolific Estonian composer whose innovative choral works helped propel his Baltic nation's drive to restore independence, has died at the age of 86.

Tormis died Saturday from long-term illnesses in the Estonian capital, Tallinn, Mariliis Rebane of the Estonian Composers' Union told the AP.

Tormis was considered a national icon in Estonia where choral music has been central to the culture going back to hundreds of years under Swedish and German rule.

Estonia's budding independence drive in the 1980s was dubbed the Singing Revolution for the massive and peaceful rallies when crowds often sang in old-form, chanting styles popularized by Tormis.

Tormis' haunting yet beautiful a cappella compositions typically incorporated a chanting, runic style that conjured up images of shamans and now-forgotten ancient peoples along the Baltic Sea shores.

His works garnered international acclaim after Estonia regained independence in 1991, with choirs from Korea to the United States performing his music.

Tormis' best known and most performed work, \"Curse Upon Iron,\" became an unexpected staple in an unexpected place: The Oregon City High School in suburban Portland. Amy Aamodt, the school choir director at the time, explained how the choir first took on the difficult piece around 2010 with hesitancy as they sang in the original Estonian \u2014 but then quickly became enthralled.

\"Even when we were learning his music, I would look up and there would be tears in the kids' eyes. ... Something just clicked about his music,\" an emotional Aamodt said in a phone interview Monday after learning from a reporter about the composer's death. \"The piece was so much deeper than any of us could have imagined.\"

\"Curse Upon Iron\" is an ode to the horrors of war written for choir and hoop drum in which singers are instructed in the score to spin, crouch and shriek at points, adding to its power. The Estonian lyrics speak of the curse of war and its weapons: \"Wretched iron! ... You flesh eater, gnawer of bones!\"

The effect when the student choir performed the work, even though the words were foreign to everyone in the audience, was universal, recalled Aamodt.

\"I would look out \u2014 and the parents were crying,\" she said.

Soft-spoken and modest, Tormis described his compositions as keeping alive the memories of ancient peoples, whose cultures and languages have long since died.

\"It is not I who makes use of folk music. It is folk music that makes use of me,\" he was quoted as saying on several of his albums.

Born Aug. 7, 1930, Tormis got his diploma from the Moscow Conservatoire in 1956, wrote symphonic music and other mainstream forms early in his career, but increasingly focused on ancient forms after researching music going back centuries of the Estonians and Finns, as well their lesser-known relatives, such as the Liivs and Ingrians.

Tormis is survived by his wife, Lea, and one son, Tonu.

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) \u2014 For a long time, nearly all of the animation students at the California Institute of the Arts' were men.

Today, most of CalArts' more than 250 animation students are women, and one of their goals is to create more realistic female characters \u2014 not just the sex bombs, shy nerds and haggard villains that dominate now.

The reason such stereotypes persist, according to Marge Dean, president of the industry group Women in Animation: Men still fill animation's writing rooms and director's chairs.

\"Many, many, many women are going to animation schools,\" said Dean, whose organization tracks figures through schools and industry groups. \"Yet if you start looking at women in creative roles, the last number we have is only 22 percent.\"

In an effort to boost those numbers, CalArts faculty invites studio representatives to campus for events and maintains a close relationship with groups like Dean's, which is pushing the studios to have a creative workforce of half women and half men by 2025.

The school also has played host the past two years to a symposium on gender bias in animation. This year it focused on the roles of \"Sidekicks, Nerd Girls, Tomboys and More.\"

Here, a female student renders some of those archetypal female cartoon roles, and Erica Larsen-Dockray, who teaches a class on \"The Animated Woman,\" explains:

___

THE PRINCESS

She has an impossibly tiny waist and is gorgeous beyond belief. Big eyes, flowing locks, luscious lips and a heart-shaped face. She's historically usually white and depicted as innocent and virginal. About the typical princess' waistline, Larsen-Dockray says: \"If they were life-size, they would not have space in their bodies for reproductive organs.\"

___

THE FAIRY GODMOTHER

She's always plump and rosy-cheeked, with particular emphasis on large breasts and buttocks. \"I think a lot of animators at that time were thinking about their nannies,\" Larsen-Dockray says. \"They're like the epitome of physical comfort, every man-child's dream.\"

___

THE VILLAIN

While male villains can be any shape or size, female villains almost always are old and unmarried. They have gray hair, wrinkles and harsh makeup. They're hardened and sour and always look stern and angry. Visually, they're typically depicted looking almost bony with sharp lines, including high cheekbones and pointy elbows.

___

THE NERD

Many female sidekicks are depicted as nerds. They have glasses, they're shy and awkward, and they often have freckles. They're also usually in a makeover episode at some point, Larsen-Dockray says, as if to remind viewers that they can be feminine. \"It's really messed up,\" she says.

PARIS (AP) \u2014 A labyrinth and a scented secret garden led to Christian Dior's enchanted collection Monday \u2014 the hugely anticipated couture debut from new designer Maria Grazia Chiuri.

The collection in Paris' Musee Rodin kicked off Paris' week of spring-summer couture shows \u2014 the fashion industry's ideas factory spanning four days and 24 collections.

Star guests including actresses Kirsten Dunst, Diane Kruger and rapper ASAP Rocky marveled at a gargantuan magical tree constructed inside the venue, decorated colorfully with beading, lights and philosophical quotes.

Perhaps inspired by the decor, Dunst moved beyond fashion to talk to The AP about female empowerment.

Here are some highlights Monday:

___

DIOR'S FOREST FANTASY

Fairytale music conjured up a sensuous, magical atmosphere at Chiuri's spring-summer show that didn't fully translate to the couture.

Taking over the creative reins of such a historic house as Dior is a daunting task, and so who can blame the talented Italian-born designer for playing it a little safe?

The finely executed styles \u2014 floppy hoods, smooth signature peplums, feather tiaras, delicate sheer black animal masks and butterfly chokers \u2014 were pared down on sometimes minimalist silhouettes.

The tulle and silk velvet gowns strongly evoked a fairytale or black-magic theme echoed by the forest decor and \"Thought Tree\" glistening with Tarot cards and gold coins.

The binary palette \u2014 of mainly white and black, with flashes of satin red and forest green \u2014 highlighted a fairytale morality of good and bad, producing some of the show's most beautiful looks.

Full, floor-length skirts hid the elfin-like models' legs, so that they appeared to float across the mossy runway floor.

DUNST SPEAKS ON WOMEN'S MOVEMENT

Dunst, whose latest film \"Hidden Figures\" features the untold story of three African-American women working at a racially discriminatory NASA in the 1960s, said there was no better time for the movie to come out.

The 34-year-old actress said that the \"inspiring message is hugely important in the world today\" as it crossed lines of both gender and race at a moment of political transition in the U.S.

\"With the (President Donald Trump's) inauguration, it couldn't be a better time for this movie to come out. I'm so proud of its success,\" Dunst told The AP.

\"This film inspires women to come out and support other women in the arts and all women everywhere. It shows a movie's real power to shape attitudes,\" she said.

SCHIAPARELLI GOES CHINESE

Popstar Kylie Minogue and actress Thandie Newton were front row for Schiaparelli's couture feast \u2014 held in the old Place Vendome atelier-apartment of fashion icon Elsa, who died in 1973.

Once the place where writer Jean Cocteau and artist Salvador Dali mingled, on Monday fashion insiders were presented a spring-summer show that revisited the design house's shocking pink as well as art deco and 1930s designs.

The show channeled the Asian styles that the eccentric couturier would wear around the famed apartment \u2014 including silk Japanese kimonos and Chinese hanfus.

The signature \"lobster dress\" \u2014 influenced by Surrealist Dali \u2014 was revisited with inserts alongside menswear jacket silhouettes that riffed on geometry.

The house, which was revamped a few years ago, still has some way to go before the designs gain confidence and liberate themselves from the overly referential.

___

IRIS VAN HERPEN

Blurring the lines between fashion and art, Dutch Wunderkind Iris Van Herpen's cerebral couture collection explored imperfections and \"gaps\" in fashion and in science.

The catwalk of short-circuiting lines of electricity was lit patchily so that the eyes of the spectator had to keep readjusting to focus in on the 16 organic, diaphanous creations.

It had fashion insiders initially looking bemused as they tried in vain to take photos of the show.

But they soon realized this was art.

The haphazard lighting was, in fact, the work of German artist Ester Stocker to create visual distortion \u2014 to create \"a conflict of light and shadow,\" so said the house.

The theme of imperfection was handled perfectly in the couture, which played on textures in black and white.

High-tech material formed bumps and glistened as if wet on flat-fronted mini dresses that evoked gossamer and weightlessness. Elsewhere, fragmented patterns resemble the grooves of a fossilized shell.

Copper-plated diagonal high heels also disrupted the balance of the shoe, leaving a rectangular gap for the very thought-provoking show.

___

RALPH & RUSSO

Rapper Nelly and Dunst hit the eclectic Ralph & Russo couture show that revamped the bygone glamour days of the 1950s.

Silken full skirts in white and pastel shades successfully sparkled down the runway worn on models with sharp, Asian-style bobs.

But the 55 styles felt incongruous as a whole.

Uber-minis of the 1960s sexual revolution met with designs that showcased the clubbing visor and exposed midriff of the 1990s.

Elsewhere, one structured pink satin gown embodied 1980s decadence and almost evoked the TV show \"Dynasty.\"

Still, there were plenty of red-carpet gowns to satisfy the nascent house's burgeoning clientele that includes Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Down is up. The sky is red. Dogs are birthing kittens. Facts? Nope. Try \"alternative facts.\"

The internet went wild after a top Trump adviser, Kellyanne Conway, said the administration was supplying the media with \"alternative facts.\" The comment came after she was asked why Trump press secretary Sean Spicer mischaracterized the size of inauguration crowds.

Spicer made two unprovable statements in his briefing with reporters: that photographs of the audience at Donald Trump's inaugural were intentionally framed to minimize the appearance of support, and that Trump drew the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration. He also made statements that were quickly disproven, including an assertion that the Washington Metro system recorded more riders on the day of Trump's inaugural than when Obama was sworn in for his second term.

\"Alternativefacts\" quickly became a popular hashtag on Twitter, where users supplied their own such facts, including \"cigarettes are good for you\" and \"it's not Monday. It is still the weekend.\"

The hashtag \"spicerfacts\" followed. Widely shared #spicerfacts included \"Yoko Ono broke up the Monkees. Period.\" and \"The KKK is a peaceful community outreach organization.\"

But even amid the snarky mockery, many users pointed to eerie similarities to George Orwell's \"1984,\" a dystopian novel about a totalitarian regime. One quote reads: \"The Party told you to reject all evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.\"

Veteran journalist Dan Rather told The Associated Press on Sunday that while past press secretaries have misled reporters before through the omission of information, the weekend's demonstrably false assertions about the inauguration crowd size was the first time he could recall false material being delivered in this way.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) \u2014 Lady Antebellum will perform a pre-race concert at next month's Daytona 500.

The trio of Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood will take the stage at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 26, entertaining thousands on hand for \"The Great American Race.\"

Lady Antebellum has played Daytona before, first prior to the Coke Zero 400 in 2008 and most recently at last year's inaugural Country 500 music festival. A seven-time Grammy-winning group, Lady Antebellum has enjoyed nine No. 1 hits. The band's latest single, \"You Look Good,\" is the first cut from its new album titled \"Heart Break,\" which is scheduled to be released in early June.

Other Daytona 500 pre-race celebrities include Owen Wilson (grand marshal) and Jordin Sparks (national anthem).

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) \u2014 The U.S. Supreme Court said Monday it won't hear an appeal from the family on TV's \"Sister Wives\" challenging Utah's law banning polygamy.

The decision ends the family's long legal fight to overturn a seldom used and unique provision of Utah's law that the Browns and other polygamous families contend has a chilling effect by sending law-abiding plural families into hiding because of fear of prosecution.

The provision bars married people from living with a second purported \"spiritual spouse\" even if the man is legally married to just one woman, making it stricter than anti-bigamy laws in other states.

The reality TLC cable channel TV show follows the lives of Kody Brown, his four wives and all their children. When it debuted in 2010, it was considered ground-breaking by offering viewers a glimpse into how a plural family navigates the unique complexities of the arrangement.

Utah prosecutors say they generally leave polygamists alone but that they need the ban to pursue polygamists for other crimes such as underage marriage and sexual assault. Only 10 people were charged with violating the law between 2001 and 2011, prosecutors say.

The Utah Attorney General's Office declined comment on the Supreme Court's denial of the case, which the justices issued without comment.

The saga between the Browns and Utah officials began in September 2010 when the first episode aired of the TLC show, \"Sister Wives.\" A county prosecutor opened an investigation, leading the Browns to leave their longtime of Lehi, Utah, in 2011, to settle in Las Vegas where they still live today.

That same year, the Browns filed a lawsuit calling the opening of the investigation government abuse. The case was closed without filing any charges.

In 2013, the Browns scored a key legal victory when a federal judge in Utah ruled the law violated polygamists' right to privacy and religious freedom.

But an appeals court in Denver decided last year that the Browns could not sue because they were not charged under the Utah law. It did not consider the constitutional issues. That ruling will now stand.

The Brown's attorney, Jonathan Turley, said in a statement posted on his blog that he and the family are disappointed but not surprised because the high court is on a pace to hear less than 1 percent of the 7,500 appeals it is likely to receive this term.

Turley emphasized that an appeals court ruling was not made based on the merits of the Browns' assertion that Utah's law violates their rights of speech and religion.

\"Our victory in Salt Lake City will remain as a cautionary decision for legislators who wish to marginalize or sanction this community in the future,\" Turley said. \"It has been a long road for all of us and it is not the end of the road. Plural and unconventional families will continue to strive for equal status and treatment under the law.\"

Kody Brown is legally married to Robyn Brown, but says he is \"spiritually married\" to three other women. They live together in a plural relationship and belong to a religious group that believes in polygamy as a core religious practice. Their show continues to air on TLC.

About 30,000 polygamists live in Utah, according to court documents. The mainstream Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints abandoned the practice in 1890 and strictly prohibits it today.

This story has been corrected to show Kody Brown is now legally married to Robyn Brown, not Meri Brown.

GDANSK, Poland (AP) \u2014 It was supposed to be the first museum in the world to tell the story of World War II in its entirety by focusing on all the nations caught up in that global conflict. But it has fallen foul of changing political priorities in its Polish home, and as it opened its doors for the first time Monday, it's facing an uncertain future.

After nine years of work, the Museum of the Second World War opened in Gdansk for one day to reporters, historians, veterans and donors. Director Pawel Machcewicz hoped the world could get a glimpse of it as he races against the clock to get it finished before he is pushed out of his job, something he believes is inevitable.

The project was launched in 2008 by then-Prime Minister Donald Tusk, who is today one of the European Union's top leaders. Aside from its global approach, the creators of the state museum say it is different from most other war museums in that it puts civilian suffering \u2014 not military campaigns \u2014 at the heart of the narrative.

But the political climate in Poland has changed dramatically since then, with a nationalist and populist government in charge that deeply objects to its approach and wants to take control over the institution to change its content. Members of the ruling Law and Justice party say they want a museum that focuses solely on the Polish experience, with primacy given to the heroism of Polish soldiers who resisted the Germans.

\"We are being attacked as a museum that is not Polish enough,\" Machcewicz said.

\"It's very unusual for the creation of a historical exhibit to encounter such huge pressure from the government.\"

He is putting up a stiff opposition to the attempt to take over the museum, and is now in a legal battle with the Culture Ministry. A decision by a top court on Tuesday is expected to determine whether the museum can maintain its independence long enough to open to the public in late February, as scheduled. Machcewicz said the government is also withholding critical funds he needs to operate the museum.

As a result of the rush, many of the displays were not yet in place Monday. But enough was there for viewers to get a sense of the immensely tragic story being told.

One object on display is a farewell note written on a handkerchief by a Polish politician, Boleslaw Wnuk, before he was executed in 1940 by the Germans in an operation that targeted the Polish intelligentsia.

\"Let God pay for my blood with eternal damnation for the foul villains,\" said the note, which was smuggled out by a Polish prison guard.

Museum visitors learn that Wnuk's younger brother, Jakub, a pharmacist and army officer, became the victim of Poland's other wartime occupier, the Soviet Union. He was captured by the Soviet army in 1939 and killed in 1940 in Katyn, one of some 22,000 Polish officers killed in the Soviet massacres of Polish elites.

World War II still holds a key place in the Polish national identity. There is huge pride at the fierce resistance put up by the Polish army to the German invasion of 1939 that launched the war and the years of underground resistance. There is also a sense that Poland's tragic fate, which included being occupied by the Germans and Soviets, has not been fully recognized by the world.

Adding to the sense of grievance, Poland was condemned to the Soviet sphere despite its contribution to the Allied effort. So for Poland, the war didn't fully end until 1989, when the country regained its sovereignty, a message that is also stressed by the museum.

The nationalist authorities governing the country believe the museum should focus on the uniqueness of Poland's tragedy and not be watered down by exploring the fate of other nations. A key spokesman for this idea, historian Jan Zaryn, who is also a senator for the ruling party, complains that the multinational approach taken by the museum makes it more difficult for the visitor to see \"our exceptionality.\"

He argues that Poland should create something comparable to what Holocaust museums have achieved for Jews.

\"After decades of silence there should be a museum that introduces the phenomenon and specificity of the Polish historical experience,\" Zaryn said in a televised discussion in October. \"We should do something like what the Jewish community has done, which managed to arrange around the Holocaust all the other events of World War II.\"

But the museum's creators and supporters insist that the very act of placing Poland's history in the broader context is what will help foreign visitors understand and appreciate the specificity of Poland's tragedy.

\"Sometimes when politicians look at the museum like this they don't understand how much conceptual work there was,\" said Yale historian Timothy Snyder, who is a member of the museum's advisory board.

\"If this museum is lost, Gdansk, Poland, Europe, the world, loses the only chance we have for an experience of public history, for people from all of the world, not only in Poland, to understand the Second World War. That would be a dreadful civilizational loss.\"
