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.

The Roots of CAIR’s
Intimidation Campaign
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/13/2014 10:12:32 PM     Post Reply
Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice!

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
