Professors Upset over
Musburger´s ´Extraordinarily
Inappropriate´ Comments

Breitbart´s Sports, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/14/2013 10:45:14 AM

Journalism professors at colleges and universities, including the University of Alabama, did not appreciate ESPN play-by-play announcer Brent Musburger´s observation during last Monday´s BCS championship game telecast that Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron´s girlfriend, a former Miss Alabama, was beautiful. Sue Carter, a professor of journalism at Michigan State, told the The New York Times it was "extraordinarily inappropriate to focus on an individual´s looks," and that Musburger´s comments were a "major personal violation." Carter made these comments even though Katherine Webb, whose beauty Musburger praised, has said she was flattered by the comments.

Comments:
Oh puhleeze. Those idiot "journalism" professors should be more concerned about the total bias and corruption in the media. I don´t hear them criticizing the outrageous racist remarks from those at MessNBC.

You have to wonder if the vast majority of the complaints of the impropriety of Musburger´s comments are coming from those who would never receive comments like that themselves.

Typical liberal reflex action. It´s not fair bringing attention to a pretty girl when there are so many dowdy hags wedged into their lofty Chairs of Journalism, nursing their bitter resentment at the cruelness of being born. So rather than trying to better themselves, they reflexively tear down everything around them that reminds them of their flaws.

"If thine eye offends thee, pluck it out."

And at the end of it all Katherine Webb is still a pretty girl and journalism professors are outed as the shrill hectoring harpies we always knew they were.

A risible reminder that it is the universities that are the authors of all our woe. American universities have become the enemies of America. Unless the universities are recaptured from radicals and reformed, matters are bound to go from bad to worse.

This case shows us why it was a mistake to categorize journalism as a professional discipline rather than a trade. There is really nothing for people aspiring to a PhD in journalism to learn or to teach, so they stuff their heads and the heads of their students full of politically correct straw. The same is true for education. There is absolutely no justification for a PhD in education of journalism. Creating these bogus distinctions means generating mountains of intellectual rubbish of no value to anyone, and a kind of compost pile on which weeds and poisonous plants of all kind sprout and thrive.

Sounds like the Journalism Professors need to Grow Up.

The scary part is that they are the ones who fill our kids with juvenile values.

The juvenile values lead to a reporter who actually has the thought to contact them for their opinion.

I guess I´m Old School - I would describe Miss Alabama as Pretty, also. Sue Carter, not so much.

The annoying thing about this whole stupid affair is that Miss Alabama--the girl who Musburger drew attention to--her job is to be pretty. It would be like my telling a friend about a doctor, "He´s an excellent surgeon". Miss Alabama is a participant in a beauty contest. To draw attention to her looks is precisely what is supposed to happen.

The folks complaining have an issue with a society that actually favors good looks.

Musberger innocently provided the left with another weapon to use in its War on Men. From now on, we will never have ESPN or other network camera focus on an attractive female, whether in stands or as an on field cheerleader. Instead, we´ll get close ups of Rastafarian braids, body art and post-play celebratory dance moves. Remember, leftist outrage is far stronger than a law suit or TV ratings.

Worse, we´ll soon have "minders" of male announcers in the booth. These minders will be former female athletes with gym teacher hairstyles, mannish voices and jockish terminology who discuss in unwanted detail how the shooting of the player´s brother drove him to wear diamond ear studs.

WHEN will we stop hearing about this? I grew up in Alabama--where every DAY in school was a beauty contest and the high points of the year were the school-sponsored "Beauty Walks," and such. Church was a fashion show. To be complimented for one´s beauty is the highest compliment a Southern lady can receive, and what a large percentage of the young southern female population works so HARD to receive and LONGS to hear.

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City and the Village

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 7:53:38 PM     Post Reply
Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

President Obama thinks Democrats should not shy away from defending Obamacare. “Democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people . . . we’re helping, because of something we did,” he said. The president held a press conference on Thursday to announce that 8 million people have enrolled in Obamacare. He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

Reid: Bundy supporters

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) intensified his criticism of armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy, calling them “domestic terrorists.” “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said Thursday at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.” Reid specifically criticized Bundy supporters for bringing guns and their children to the ranch to defend him against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

“We should be afraid of sharia law” in America, and Muslims here who want to practice sharia should go back to where they came from, “to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Rev.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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
