ESPN, Brent Musburger, and
the Idiocy of Political Correctness

Breitbart's Sports, by Ron Futrell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/12/2013 12:29:05 PM

The media never disappoints with its asinine twisting and turning to ensure political correctness. You can no longer say a beautiful woman is beautiful during the broadcast of a live sporting event. ESPN has issued an apology for their play-by-play guy, Brent Musburger, saying that Katherine Webb, Miss Alabama, was a "lovely lady." Webb is the girlfriend of AJ McCarron, the ´Bama quarterback who was out there on the field winning the national championship in college football while Musburger was making his horribly politically incorrect statements. Musburger also encouraged young athletes to

Comments:
What he said was no big deal. Get over it. And yet the vile jerks at MessNBC say offensive, racist, vulgar things every day and they are never critized or punished.

The only reason I clicked on the story was to see her picture again.

Yet, the littlest moron, Mike Lupica, offends on a weekly basis, almost as if he has tenure at ESPN, or maybe, based on his size, he is a protected species.

Probably a few feminists and/or unattractive women called to complain about favorable things being said about a pretty girl. Female jealously is fairly widespread.

The game was a dud, so the camera went looking for something interesting. The guy on mic has to say something or else there is dead air, there was absolutely nothing wrong with what he came up with on the spot.

Sane people need to start telling the whiners to shut up.

Camera close ups of girlfriends will go the way of cheerleaders, to be seen only in background as networks focus on horribly tattooed, Rastafarian coiffed psychotics dancing about after hitting a QB.

NFL and college football is increasingly similar to watching the Bloods Vs Crips in a prison pick-up game. Perhaps the NCAA´s ironically named Diversity Office should be more concerned with gang attire than banning Indian mascots.

#1, I am still laughing. This lady IS outstandingly gorgeous. A red-blooded American man merely said what everyone else watching was thinking - especially the fellows! The lady, BTW, was gracious and appreciated the compliment. So, what is the problem.

Musburger ´s comments were offensive,(?) but Kathy Griffen simulating oral sex on Anderson Cooper is cool. And don´t forget our dear leader referred to tea partiers as teabaggers. Yes he did. The left is incredibly low class and vulgar. My question to the people who found it "creepy " please give me cutoff age when men should stop admiring pretty women. 50, 60, 70? Just wondering.

Brent Musburger is a pig. I sat next to him on a flight to White Plains, NY and was appalled at what an arrogant, pompous jerk he is. I "accidentally" spilled beer all over him. It was a tremendous feeling to know I was able to douse the swine with swill!

Katherine Webb has already issued a statement saying that she was flattered. She also asked, "What woman wouldn´t want to be told that she´s beautiful?" Only ugly women would be offended by that.

These politically correct pukes in the front office at ESPN will never be heard complaining about the language and sexual innuendo of the average broadcast tv sitcom. I´m no prude but I can´t believe how raunchy shows such as " Modern Family" get away with it. We´re probably only a couple of years away from prime-time frontal nudity but Brent needs to do time somewhere getting his mind right?

Old Brent is a hyper opinionated over the top kind of personality who nobody we know can stand while trying to watch a sports presentation.

The lady here is Miss Alabama, has anyone ever seen a Miss Alabama who was not right up there around #10?

The feminist leader from the 1970s, Karen DeCrow, used to complain bitterly that employers were hiring women as receptionists who were pretty.
Imagine that!
Miss Alabama is a beautiful young woman, who might want to cut back a bit on the makeup.

The woman is beautiful; I love the picture with the teen age boy eyeing her. How many of the men on this site were jealous of the young man? All of them!!!

The LGBT will be boycotting ESPN because they didn´t receive equal time during the game.

It was funny and he seemed dsperate, not offensive. She was a beauty queen, that is what she wants. Plus, ND decided not to tackle, so we had to watch something.

Just how many times was the beautiful lady shown? I can understand a couple but the multiple shots were overdone--not Musbergers fault but somebody in the directors seat.

I think Brent upset one of the thillies in
control room of E.S.P.N. and so the little thilly got his panties all in a bunch and made Brent apologize for being a man and complimenting a woman on her beauty!!
What a bunch of GUTLESS COWARDS E.S.P.N. has
running the show, maybe if Brent commented on how cute the quarterback was the thilly in
the control room may have been happy because
Brent was sooooo politically correct!!

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner
coordination with DOJ: ‘Now I see

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Elizabeth Warren whines about coverage

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

So I´m outside yesterday leaving work, and a woman stops me to say how much she loves me. I get this all the time. We chat a bit and she goes on to tell me how much she appreciates my covering what the other guys won´t. Then she said something that really stuck with me. "Neil, thank god you´re not cool." I told her, "is it that obvious?" She laughed. I laughed. But she got me thinking. It happens sometimes. I´m not cool. But I´m ok with that. Good thing, because I never was cool. But just admitting that to the mainstream media is very un-cool. Because the mainstream media

Why is US Senator Harry

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
