Last night on the season premiere of FOX’s American Idol, contestant #23141 had the judges laughing. It was four firm “No!’s.” This tone-deaf competitor clearly had no idea she lacked the ability to sing. She didn’t get the golden ticket to Hollywood — and thank God for that. Although, that didn’t dissuade the mother of the grief-stricken contestant [...]
Politico has this picture in their “Morning Money” blast. Steve Schwarzman is a big funder of leading Republican candidates and nominees. Rubio 2016 buzz is going cray cray today. The penguins are in New York as part of Sea World’s Antarctica Exhibit. Sea World is a company in Schwarzman’s Blackstone Group.
Just two days after CNN’s Piers Morgan, in a debate (really it was a shouting-down-your-guests fest) with conservative commentator Dana Loesch, suggested that it was outrageous for a New York man, being attacked by a gang of 7 others, to wound his attackers or present a gun in order to avoid being violently beaten. This sort of logic [...]
In her defense, Tania Beck says it was an accident. Just leaving for my anniversary and my wife tells me she “accidentally” flushed her wedding ring down the toilet. — Glenn Beck (@glennbeck) January 17, 2013 We enjoyed the tweet Glenn! Twitchy has his following tweets.
On Fox News’ On the Record with Greta Van Susteren, CEO John Mackey took steps back from his comments where he compared Obamacare to “fascism.” Originally on Wednesday he told NPR’s Morning Edition, ”[t]echnically speaking, it’s more like fascism,” sparking controversy among liberal pundits and making headlines. You’ll want to catch the question and answer at the 11:34 min [...]
In an interview with POLITICO, Piers Morgan embodies the old adage, “isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black,” critics might say. Here’s what critics of the primetime talk show anchor have to say about him and what he has to say about The Dish’s Andrew Sullivan. But the approach grates on Morgan’s critics, who [...]
Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o has inspired many people this year with his his rousing speeches and legendary play on the football field. Yesterday, he gave us another kind of inspiration, which has landed on social media faster than Alabama’s running backs ran by his tackles in the BCS. It’s called “Te’oing” and like its [...]
Notre Dame Linebacker and Heisman Trophy runner-up Manti Te’o’s heartbreaking story about his girlfriend dying of leukemia six hours after his grandmother had died, turns out to be a hoax.

The “actions” aren’t listed on WhiteHouse.gov, but we can provide you with the list. And while, 23 may sound like a big number, these orders are largely revamps to existing systems to mental health, law enforcement tools, and what the executive branch should be focused on. Obamacare makes a guest appearance on the 16th action. Executive Actions: [...]
A&E’s new Boston-based reality show “Southie Rules” has taken the city’s rivalry with New York to a new level with an ad campaign aimed at the city’s notoriously nanny-like mayor and it’s uber-sensitive citizens. The ads, so far displayed only on NYC’s outdated phone booths, don’t pull any punches. In an obvious shot at Mayor [...]
In December 2012, the self-appointed fact-checkers at PolitiFact, which even left-wing pundits at MSNBC have termed “a zombie, eating our national brains,” poo-pooed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign claim that government-owned car manufacturer Chrysler was planning on adding production plants in China instead of focusing on expanding its Ohio-based Jeep production plants – and [...]
… although it was “No Child Left Behind.” Education legislation. President Obama will feature children at his press conference tomorrow unveiling a plan to reduce gun violence and limit access to guns and/or ammunition. A bridge too far?
Joe Johns, the Crime and Punishment reporter for CNN, has been filling in for anchor Wolf Blitzer this week. During the first hour of the Situation Room, Johns (an African-American man himself) had on CNN contributors, President Obama’s Democratic pollster Cornell Belcher (another African-American — yes the one who called Herman Cain a racist), and Ari Fleischer, White [...]
