Admit it. Angus T. Jones was right. From “Glee” to “Girls” to “Two and a Half Men,” television has devolved into a vacuous wasteland where ordinary notions of morality, fidelity and decency are not just censored. They’re a joke. TV shows present teenage virginity as a curse, human intelligence as a disease, and promiscuous sex as the norm, while average human attention spans are as alien as the Martian landscape. That’s what Jones, all of 19, suggested when he made a video that went viral on YouTube last week, an impassioned, 20-minute religious rant that had Hollywood’s amoral glamazons shocked
Boycott this garbage! Write to the networks & their sponsors and tell them why you are boycotting. It is simple: no viewers, no ratings, no sponsors, no shows. Can´t somebody please organize a national boycott of the media & Hollywood in all of their most vile forms?

Thank heaven for radio and Lucianne. Have you noticed how many times the killer was a "good´ catholic? "Person of interest´ had an interracial lesbian married couple as the focus, last week. Local TV women have plunging necklines and short skirts. Junk.
America has abandoned God. Does it not appear as though God has righteously abandoned America? A collective evil reigns in the land and not just in TV. The same spirit possesses our politics, education, as well as all facets of national life.
I actually watch Glee. I love it. If there is a best way to do this type of entertainment, then Glee does it just right. I don´t watch Two and a Half men or New Normal. I think the kid was right about Two And A Half men from what I´ve heard. Haven´t heard anything on New Normal.
Every single second of media is shaped to the last frame. Every single second is pushing a point of view and a values system. Even the shows that seem like they might be advocates for things like firearms or individual responsibility, usually have another message and it isn´t necessarily what you think it is. Look who is President, who his inner circle looks up to, who has access and what splinter groups get the majority of air time. Read any of Orwell´s books, they are being played out. As far as Glee, the slick, upbeat, song and dance numbers are wrapped in a hamfisted ´gay´ advocacy that is the personal crusade of the show´s creator. Tired of it.
If you´re inclined to watch prime time TV, try this filter that is used in our house (you won´t watch much TV from the three major networks if you do):
The program is switched off at the first reference to a bodily function, bodily fluid or a snarky slam on Christianity. For example, Sherlock Holmes could always solve a murder without a DNA sample but the geniouses on CSI usually need a bodily fluid to succeed. The Honeymooners could make you laugh without using a sexual reference or a bodily function, etc., etc. There´s something wrong and missing from our politically correct culture.
One in four applications for ObamaCare was botched during the process of forwarding the electronic files to insurers over the last two months, officials admitted Friday. The startling 25 percent error rate for October and November means that thousands who signed up on Healthcare.gov during that time could face problems when they try to use their new policies starting Jan. 1. The error rate fell to 10 percent this month, after repairs were made to the troubled Web site. But insurance-industry leaders are warning that the transmission situation is far from resolved. “The new process put in place this week is
Something bad has been in the water at Los Angeles International Airport for the last several weeks. With the city in the midst of a sweeping $2-billion transformation of the Tom Bradley International Terminal, airlines that use the facility´s old and new gates have been unable to replenish their aircraft with drinking water because of contamination in the building´s plumbing. According to airport emails obtained by The Times, the water is brown and contains high levels of bacteria and particles of copper, brass and rust. Officials have conducted a review to see if contamination has also surfaced in the water
Agents from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are using Google Maps as part of their tool kit to audit taxpayers and organizations, The Daily Caller has learned. A redacted IRS letter dated Sept. 8, 2011 reveals that at least in one case the IRS’s examiners used photos of a property, obtained through Google Maps, as evidence to revoke the 501(c)(4) status of a homeowner’s association. “The road consists of a two-mile loop around the inside of the property. It goes not have any sidewalks or bicycle lanes. The examining agent printed and copied a map from Google Maps (www.google.com) into
MEMPHIS, Tenn.- After cold rain and winds lashed the Southwest and other parts of the country Friday, millions of residents hunkered down for icy conditions expected to last through the weekend as the cold snap was forecast to continue causing problems and trekking northeast. Face-stinging sleet, thick snow and blustery winds led to slick road conditions, school closures, power outages and event cancellations as the wintry blast dropped temperatures to freezing and below from Texas to Ohio to Tennessee on Friday. In California, four people died of hypothermia in the San Francisco Bay Area while
Gen. Billy Mitchell, one of the fathers of the American Air Force, made the bold claim in 1925 that Japan would attack the militarily unprepared United States “by striking first at Hawaii, some fine Sunday morning.” Most thought Mitchell was insane, his prediction ludicrous, and few had the desire for a new build-up of arms and military power. On a fine Sunday morning, 72 years ago, a wave of Japanese fighters, dive bombers, and torpedo planes came screaming over the hills of Oahu, Hawaii. As they approached Pearl Harbor, Japanese Commander Fuchida Mitsuo radioed back to his fleet the code
The Obama administration is selectively releasing data and metrics on ObamaCare to bolster its case that the rollout is going better in the month of December. Tidbits of information from federal health officials — especially figures that show improvements at HealthCare.gov — have become a key tool in the effort to “reboot” the law in the eyes of the public. But the limited nature of the releases has created conflict with the media and put the spotlight on outstanding areas of concern for the rollout, such as the enrollment site´s back end. It’s not unusual for politicians to put out
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer had some harsh words for Barack Obama Friday. Appearing on Fox News’s Special Report, Krauthammer said, “It´s as if this guy discovers everything late, as if he wandered into the White House on a White House tour and discovered himself in the Oval Office as president.” (Video) BRET BAIER, HOST: What about this whole thing that his take, Charles, that government is not good at certain things, and we´re looking to consolidate some agencies, and yet his administration, when describing the success that they´re having now, says that the website is operating at private sector velocity?
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
