Bryant Gumbel calls NRA Members ‘Pigs’

In an interview with Rolling Stone, HBO host Bryant Gumbel was asked about the National Rifle Association and a segment he did on his Real Sports show about the “Eat what you kill” movement. There are a few things I hate more than the NRA. I mean truly. I think they’re pigs. I think they don’t care about human life. I think they are a curse upon the American landscape. […]

Benghazi Begone?

The Benghazi attack. Perhaps you’ve heard of it. If you watch Fox, you’ve heard a lot about it. Much of the coverage was a justified counterpoint to the relative lack elsewhere: Four Americans were dead, the Administration’s media response was, at best, muddy, and the non-Fox press seemed more concerned about Mitt Romney than the people with actual power. No small business. But, as time passed, Benghazi became a narrative, […]

Senator Lindsey Graham: Benghazi Report ‘Full of Crap’

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., today said a new House committee report on the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi is “full of crap.” The report by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, two years in the making and released Friday evening, asserts that intelligence and military officials responded appropriately during the attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Graham, a member […]

CNN Warning You Are About To Hear The NATIONAL ANTHEM

CNN, which bills itself as “The Most Trusted Name in News,” sure knows how to put a weird damper on a perfectly heartwarming, patriotic and downright tearjerker story during the week of Veterans Day. The video story is entitled “Sailor mom surprises daughter at school.” It first appeared on CNN on Thursday — on loan from an Indianapolis Fox affiliate. Prior to CNN’s presentation of the video (just after the […]

Al Jazeera sues Al Gore

Al Jazeera is suing Al Gore. Seems the owners of the network should have read the Quran that says, “do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies.” Especially those global warming nut jobs. The parties are fighting over money that is being held in escrow. The former vice president and Hyatt, the founder of Hyatt Legal Services, sued the network last month saying that it was improperly withholding […]

Can Rihanna Move On?

This business with Rihanna bothers me. As a partial result of heightened consciousness in matters of domestic violence, CBS has chosen to stop using her music as their Thursday Night Football theme. I suppose that if you think Rihanna should be ever-defined by that one incident, then that’s okay. I don’t. I was shocked to discover that this storied incident happened in February of 2009. He was 20, she 21 […]

Former White House Press Secretary Carney Joins CNN

Jay Carney, who stepped down as White House press secretary in June, is stepping back into the political fray as a commentator for CNN. Carney will make his first appearance on the news network Wednesday night during CNN’s coverage of President Barack Obama’s prime time address about the extremist group ISIS. “I’m thrilled to be joining CNN at a time when there is so much happening in the nation and […]

Video: Joan Rivers Epic Israel/Palestine Rant

Rivers was a proud Jew. During the recent Gaza war, Rivers went on a pro-Israel rant after being buttonholed by TMZ outside an airport terminal. When she launched a web series last year called “In Bed with Joan,” her first guest was the Jewish comedienne Sarah Silverman. The two snuggled up together to dish about fellow female comedians, talk about who Silverman should date and, of course, share some Jewish […]
