Malaysia Airlines crash:
MSNBC pranked, hard

Washington Post, by Erik Wemple

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/17/2014 4:58:55 PM

In its efforts to cover the Malaysia Airlines crash today, MSNBC stumbled. In this case, the enormity of the stumble can’t possibly be described, abridged, short-handed or whatever. Just read the transcript of the video above. The awfulness occurs as MSNBC host Krystal Ball takes a phone call from an alleged “eyewitness” to the crash: Ball: Let’s turn now to an MSNBC exclusive. U.S. Staff Sgt. Michael Boyd is at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine and says that he saw a missile in the air hit the plane. He is on the phone with us. Sergeant, are you there? Boyd: Yes, I’m here, can you hear me? Ball: I can, please tell us what you saw there on

Thanks, #2 - THAT´s where we´ve heard that name before. She´s also the one who appeared in the party photos with the sex toys just prior to the election. How appropriate for the caller to throw a Howard Stern mention into the prank.

When I worked for NBC, it was more important to be first, than right.

Remember they got the Martha Stewart verdict first - and wrong!

Never Again
National Review, by Kathryn Jean Lopez    Original Article

Will history wonder why we were silent in the face of Christian persecution? How many times have we heard: “Never again”? (Or taken selfies at a concentration camp or Holocaust museum with those words?) How often have we quoted: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”? And yet: Do we do nothing? What do we actually say in the face of evil? “I don’t want to have on my conscience that I was complicit in something as horrendous as this simply by being quiet,” is how Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the archbishop

Think of the potential for entertainment. It’s fun to think about how the media would drive itself crazy trying to choose sides between Joe and Hillary. On one hand, Hillary is a woman and the media’s expected inheritor of the presidency. On the other hand, Biden is part of the Obama administration. Justin Sink of The Hill recently reported: Biden fuels ’16 talk with New Hampshire visit. Vice President Biden will head to New Hampshire next week for an event on the economy that is certain to intensify speculation that he is readying a bid for the presidential nomination in

President Obama cleared his schedule — and probably his plate — for his commander-in-chef’s wedding Saturday night. Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were guests at the nuptials of Sam Kass, their devoted family chef, and MSNBC host Alex Wagner. The well-connected couple was set to be married at a trendy farm-to-table restaurant in Westchester County called Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills. The upscale restaurant doesn’t have traditional menus but offers a “grazing, pecking, rooting” selection of in-season foods and flavors for $198, or just two items for $138. Blue Hill executive chef Dan Barber is one of

The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’ Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change. But seven years after his warning, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that, far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and

DUNDEE, N.Y. — Five years after it exploded into a political conflagration over “death panels,” the issue of paying doctors to talk to patients about end-of-life care is making a comeback, and such sessions may be covered for the 50 million Americans on Medicare as early as next year. Bypassing the political process, private insurers have begun reimbursing doctors for these “advance care planning” conversations as interest in them rises along with the number of aging Americans. People are living longer with illnesses, and many want more input into how they will spend their final days, including whether they want

Christian Patriarchs: International
Community Must ´Eradicate ISIL’

“The international community must act and eradicate ISIL” (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant), Eastern Orthodox and Catholic patriarchs said in a strongly-worded statement from Lebanon Wednesday. “This is required from the United Nations and the U.N. Security Council,” the statement said. The patriarchs met in the Maronite Catholic patriarchate of Bkirki to discuss the plight of embattled Christians in the Middle East, who have been targeted for annihilation by ISIL. The meeting was attended by a number of Western diplomats and UN representatives. Following the meeting, Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rai´s envoy, Bishop Boulos Sayyah, read the statement aloud,

"I appreciate the opportunity to come on your show and explain" what the President Obama meant on Thursday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" on Friday. Earnest said President Obama may not have a strategy for "what we could do militarily in Syria," but "when it comes to confronting ISIL, the president´s made very clear that we do have a comprehensive strategy for confronting ISIL." That "comprehensive strategy" includes support for an inclusive Iraqi government; training and equipment for Iraqi and Kurdish security forces; and "engaging regional governments." It also includes U.S. military strikes in Iraq to

Obama Never Has a Plan

On Thursday, President Obama held a press conference in which he humiliated himself entirely on the question of America’s handling of the terror group ISIS. Explaining that he had to consult Congress and check the pulse of Americans, Obama stated, “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse. We don’t have a strategy yet.” Which begs the question: what the hell does this guy do for a living? ISIS has been on the move since April 2013, when Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announced that ISIS was moving into Iraq as well as Syria. On June 29, 2014, ISIS announced

Victims then, and victims now: American women were not "given" the right to vote. They had to fight for it, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told a conference call on Thursday. "It was a struggle all the way," she said. "Women marched. Women starved. Women were starved. Women were force-fed. Women could barely speak up in their own homes. "Women left their homes to take the message. And it was successful, and the right to vote, again, so precious, so hard fought...We hope women will continue to exercise forcefully, because then all of the issues we care about, whether it´s equal

California has suffered the loss of 63 trillion gallons (or 240 gigatons) of water in the past 18 months, which has resulted in the ground literally rising by an average of .15 inches since last year. The lack of water has also resulted in the movement of California´s mountains, where the uplift has been most pronounced. According to the journal Science and the Washington Post, the mountains have risen as high as half an inch. As California´s drought continues to hit the Golden State, it´s reservoirs have also been affected. The drought has left one of California´s largest reservoirs, Lake

The earliest people in the North American Arctic remained isolated from later arrivals to the region for millennia before vanishing more than 700 years ago, a new genetic analysis shows. The study, published online Thursday, also reveals that today´s Inuit and Native Americans of the Arctic are genetically distinct from the region´s first settlers. Inuit hunters in the Canadian Arctic have long told stories about a mysterious ancient people known as the Tunit, who once inhabited the far north. Tunit men, they recalled, possessed powerful magic and were strong enough to crush the neck of a walrus and singlehandedly haul

Choudary even went so far as to say that reports to the contrary were: "a complete pack of lies in order to vilify the Islamic State.

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

I guess he really was multitasking out on the golf course. The President’s team has been hard at work behind the scenes, coming up with a strategy … well, maybe we should say plan, to address the nation’s many challenges. Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016.

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

Just in case you thought that the Leader of the Free World was secretly harbouring a calculated, well-developed plan for bringing Isil under control and putting Russia’s imperial leader back in his box, Barack Obama banged that idea firmly on the head last week.

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended

If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before.

A whopping 95 percent of respondents to a BBC straw poll have said that they think multiculturalism in Britain is a failure. The poll was taken yesterday morning during the BBC’s Saturday Morning Live show, and asked “Is multiculturalism working?” Just 5 percent said “Yes”; 95 percent said “No”. Breitbart London’s James Delingpole was a guest on the show. During the discussion of the results, he said: "I think the thwacking great majority in that poll says it all.
