ESPN Boss: No More Tebow
Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by William Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/11/2012 11:27:35 AM

The Word has come down from the ESPN president, and it isn’t the same Word that Tim Tebow lives by. This Word is: Cut back on Tebow coverage. ESPN president John Skipper has lowered the boom on reporters discussing Tebow. He feels that the Tebow phenomenon has a limited shelf life. After ESPN covered the New York Jets training camp and reported on Tebow, they kept focusing on Tebow, disturbing Skipper, who said: "I said, ´Guys, we didn´t handle this very well.´ Going to training camp wasn´t a problem. We just stayed on it relentlessly and too long."

Comments:
Isn´t it grand that leftists run the world because they make such wonderful decisions for the masses. You sure wouldn´t want to promote a wholesome young man in the NFL. s/o

Instead, glorify the ones who kill their girlfriends, or the ones that drug and booze and kill teammates while driving drunk. Anyone forget Tiger Woods and his vile behavior?
Remember, the blacks believe Obama is their Lord and Savior, so we can´t allow a white player to identify with Jesus, HIS Lord and Savior.

Media execs don´t have the power to determine demand. Within a year, they´ll be restoring coverage, at least some of it.

These sports "journalists" tend to latch on to one player/story and beat it into the ground. Where was this guy when you couldn´t turn on the TV or listen to sports radio and hear about TO, or, will Bret Favre retire/unretire? I have nothing against Tebow, in fact I admire him. This is more of an indictment of the media.

#4 the media´s obession (hate) for Tim Tebow has nothing to do with football. It has to do with the fact that he is an unapologetic,outspoken CHRISTIAN.

Tim Tebow is a good guy, but until he does something noteworthy on the field, there´s not much to say. Skipper is right.

Robert Griffin III praises God in every interview I´ve seen and there is no mockery from the media, unlike their treatment of Tim Tebow.

The last Redskins game I saw, RGIII did the full Tebow bow after a TD, then crossed himself (he´s Catholic) and then stretched his arm out full length and pointed at the sky. Can we now call it ´´Giving a Griffin´´ instead of ´´Taking a Tebow´´?

(For you PC types, ´´Redskins´´ is the name of a football team that honors Indians with a depiction of an Indian on their helmets. No one names a team after people they hate.)

I take exception to that remark, #6. Those of us in Florida DO think that Tebow is exceptional. He doesn´t have a chance to ANYTHING sitting on the bench. The sooner he gets the heck out of NY the better. I don´t know why they wanted him just to have him on the Bench. That said, I think it was very exceptional when Tebow spoke to 30,000 on Easter Sunday in Georgetown, Texas!

Why cover a second/third stringer on a bad team? Maybe the vcoverage shoul dbe on ChristianBroadcasting or some other network, but not a sports themed network.

RGIII is also unashamed of his religion. He is more of a traditional passer/qb who can run. Tebow is more of a running back who can kinda pass.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush
Limbaugh, David Horowitz, and Me
PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 10:01:12 PM     Post Reply
The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:55:46 PM     Post Reply
Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent
Doesn´t Lead to ´Elevated or Even
Rational´ Obamacare Opposition
NewsBusters, by Tim Graham    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:47:27 PM     Post Reply
At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 9:36:25 PM     Post Reply
When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This Earth Day we need to consider new ways to unleash a new wave of activism to tackle today’s long list

When she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton instituted a Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review. The first one was completed in December 2010. Nearly four years later, AP reporter Matt Lee asked State Department Jen Psaki to name one thing that Clinton’s QDDR accomplished. Just one. She can’t. LEE: “Off the top of your head, can you name one tangible achievement that the last QDDR resulted in?” PSAKI: “Well Matt, obviously it’s in an extensive, expansive process.” LEE: “So no.” PSAKI: “We’re looking at how it was done last time.” LEE: “Just one.” PSAKI: “I know, I’m making an important

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio
lack experience for 2016

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration
