As history books close the chapter on 2023, Fox News Digital takes a look at the biggest news headlines of the year. 

Another trip around the sun brought unprecedented political plays, a Hollywood holdout, war in the Middle East and an economic boom from a world-famous pop singer. 

Kevin McCarthy elected House speaker

 

California Rep. Kevin McCarthy, a Republican, was elected speaker of the House of Representatives in January after an unprecedented 15 floor votes. In negotiations to clear a path to victory, McCarthy agreed to allow a single lawmaker to make a motion to elect a new speaker, returning to the way the House ran for decades before that practice was eliminated under former Speaker Nancy Pelosi. 

‘Godfather of AI’ quits Google

Geoffery Hinton, an artificial intelligence pioneer known as the "Godfather of AI," announced in May he had quit his job at Google to voice his concerns about the rapidly evolving technology. Hinton’s work serves as the foundation for AI models like ChatGPT.

 

"It is hard to see how you can prevent the bad actors from using it for bad things," Hinton said in a statement to The New York Times.

Hollywood goes on strike

Hollywood writers and actors went on strike for months in 2023, shutting down productions and delaying some blockbuster titles until 2025. AI and streaming were major factors in protracted negotiations with studios. The Writers Guild of America went back to work in September, and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit in November.  

Crisis at the border

Record-high numbers of illegal immigrants crossed the southern border in 2023. There were 242,418 migrant encounters at the border in November, the highest number for a November on record and the third-highest month ever, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. :snip:

A story you will never see on The News. "Today nationwide 98.45%  of all drivers got home safely....film at 10."

"Every day I get up, and I hope nothing will happen. I'd love to be just bored out of my skull for 24 hours, .."
