NBC News Reporter Stops
Returning Carnival Cruise
Passenger From Quoting Bible

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/16/2013 12:34:14 PM

As stranded Carnival Cruise passengers began finally disembarking in Mobile, Alabama, late Thursday evening, MSNBC had NBC News correspondent Mark Potter on the scene to speak with them. One young lady during her over three minute interview tried to cite a Bible verse that helped her get through the ordeal, but Potter pulled his microphone away and quickly ended the discussion (video follows with transcript and commentary): MARK POTTER, MSNBC REPORTER: It sounded like you guys handled it pretty well. Were there some passengers who seemed to have a really rough time on board?

Comments:
Deeper into the article it shows how Fox News covered the Bible quotes.

The anti-Christ spirit at MSNBC is alive and well.

God bless Fox News for letting the word of God go forth!

I have to say the CNN reporters on their LIVE coverage were fine discussing the Bible study, how it encouraged, and how popular it became with each successive night. I was AMAZED but they were most kind to those discussing it.

I wonder how the networks would have covered it if that young lady slapped Mark Potter across the face for his rudeness.
She certainly should have done so.
I know I wouldn´t have, though. I would have kneed him in the groin.

I may be the ONLY one thinking this, but sorry, don´t agree. The woman was starting to ramble on, first about selling her tickets. She did get in the fact that she felt God helped her, but the reporter likely had a certain amount of time, and he had no way of knowing how long the verse was going to be. He was probably getting "5 seconds" in his earpiece and had to move on.

Come on folks. There is enough REAL Christian bashing to go around and be concerned about. This isn´t one of them. Every day reporters cut people a little short to fit the time they have for a segment.

Sorry, Number 10. You may have a point, but not in this case. She, as a Christian, felt compelled to share her Hope. HE was the one who was rambling, for after he basically cut them off, HE went on to ramble for another good 10-20 seconds or so.

It´s helpful to be reminded, from time to time, why it´s worth ignoring the networks.

I remember during W´s admin, ´MSNBC´ stood for ´Make Sure No Bush Compliments´. Seems it also stands for ´Make Sure No Bible Credit´.

It is naive to think that the reporter didn´t deliberately cut off the Bible verse. Rambling on? The whole conversation lasted less than a minute.

Sorry..... I´m not buying that this trip was so horrible that someone needed a bible verse to help her get through it. It was a luxury vacation that turned into a camping trip. Deal with it.

It used to be a lot easier finding comfort in God,until Satan´s son took over this country and I´m only half kidding. Obama has put unnecessary burdens on people is a devious,inhumane way to achieve some sort of clownish world government that purports to be the grand arbiter of all the world´s ills.

There´s billions of starvation money siphoned off by liberal elites and dictators every year.Then they blame global warming for the starvation to fleece people of more money.

I do believe you don´t think what happened on that ship was a big deal. Neither do I. So how about you and I do an exercise to try to recreate it in a setting we´re familiar with, to help us get a handle on it.

Let´s Invite fifty total strangers over to our houses, and promise them luxury. Then when they´re all inside, we will lock the doors from the outside, shut off the ´lectric, water, sewer, and make them all live in the living room without contact with their families for the duration.

While this is cooking, they have free access to the surrounding rooms, but only to urinate and void their bowels on the floor. No one will clean our floors until our guests leave.

In return for the free access to the odoriferous treat emminating from their surroundings, they can live on un refrigerated food and practice their public manners.

I´m not sure I would sympathize with hose crybabies, either, after this experiment. But it may be worth a try.

Impressively sardonic, #18. Well-said.

Worth noting, too, that most people know they need to bring their own food on a camping trip. Luxury hotel guests expect to be able to get food while they´re staying there.

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

   

 



 
Tea party candidate Curt Clawson

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

IRS employees with tax and

watchdog report finds

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

It seems only yesterday, before the soothing elixir of “hope and change” was spoonfed to us by present-President Barack Obama, that Republicans could disagree with Democrats without being branded “teabaggers,” KKK-members, anarchists, Nazis, bomb throwers, arsonists, political terrorists or extremists. The unspeakable crime of conservatives? Their heartless desire to live their own lives and to be left alone by the bullying U.S. government. What has been the conservative outcry since disco was still a thing? Follow the Constitution, be fiscally responsible, and restore limited government.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

Obama to free hundreds of drug

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.

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.

Michelle Obama:

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.

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.

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
