Winfrey’s Channel Is
Set to Break Through

New York Times, by Brian Stelter

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/18/2013 11:59:11 AM

Last Tuesday afternoon, Oprah Winfrey called the co-presidents of her cable channel OWN with some jump-on-the-couch-with-joy news. “Lance wants to talk,” she said, referring to Lance Armstrong, whom she had been courting for a confessional interview about his long-denied use of performance-enhancing drugs. Ms. Winfrey conferred with the co-presidents, Erik Logan and Sheri Salata, about booking a trip to Mr. Armstrong’s hometown, Austin, Tex., reserving airtime for Thursday night and announcing the “get” to the press. What no one said on the call was that this interview — maybe Ms. Winfrey’s biggest since her 1993 sit-down

Comments:
Sure it is. s/o Other than an occasional interview like this that gets attention I just can´t see it. I never watch her and don´t plan to. She will never gain as big an audience as she had before. The downfall began with her endorsement and lovefest with 0bama.

Judging by the NYT track record to date, Ms. Winfrey should just start to file backrupty papers now.
A single success every decade or so is not a hopeful sign for the future. The channel is almost as boring as Curretn TV and almost as relavent. Maybe she could fide a nice rich terrorist organization (CAIR) to sell it too.

That was the most pathetic interview I´ve ever watched. And to think: the SECOND half is on tonight! Without me, thank you.

Armstrong doesn´t say anything, and Oprah asks the dumbest questions. She really doesn´t push him, and he really doesn´t answer what she does ask.

The only thing worse on what passes for TV news is all of the hullabaloo about the Notre Dame football player´s imaginary girlfriend. Who cares?

Oprah,
You lost your audience when you bowed to our racist anti-american POTUS and his AA racist Beard.
Take what left of your millions and just go away.
Al Gore might have a suggestion on how to sell out profitably.

Next, honeychile, you best invite Notre Dame´s Manti Teo (whatever the spelling)
and Wacky Baracky to appear together and discuss their fictional girlfriends.

You could try to win a Pulitzer by vetting the Bamster´s shady/shaky past with any
gender-specific pals of his.
You know... girls... or boys... or whatever.
Inquiring minds...

would like to know far more about our historic first black president than about
some college football linebacker, doncha know?

I don´t think anyone has actually watched the interview, they just read the articles reporting on it. How is this any kind of breakthrough?

I can´t think of anyone she could interview that I´d go out of my way to watch.

Oh, strike that. I´d watch her interview Larry Correia. But that wouldn´t get her a lot of ratings because a fantasy author/gun expert isn´t going to pull in the puppets.

Most of the world already knew what he was going to say. So much of the interview was being live blogged / tweeted that people didn´t have to actually watch the interview. The ratings will be much lower than the attention given to it would indicate.

Last night, a lot of men watched the Lance interview.

But those same men have never watched this channel before, and will never watch it again. If they did, they would forfit their ´´man cards´´, and might as well put on their wive´s dresses and high heels and go ballroom dancing.

And just throw those cajones away, since you would never need them again...

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

Eric Cantor: Obama and I totally

immigration yesterday

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

Obama: Democrats Should
‘Forcefully Defend’ Obamacare
National Review Online, by Josh Encinias    Original Article

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
are ‘domestic terrorists’

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

   

 



 
Fox News’s ‘Outnumbered’
is a stroke of evil genius
Washington Post, by Alyssa Rosenberg     Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 4:43:34 PM     Post Reply
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. Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, Graham was asked, “Some say you demonize Islam, and Christians in this country have opposed building a mosque or are worried about Sharia law. Isn’t it –” Graham, who oversees the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said, “We should be afraid of Sharia law. We should be absolutely

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

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

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

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
