Posted By:jackson, 7/21/2014 2:03:27 PM

Despite the continuing fallout from the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 and Israel´s incursion into Gaza, Monday´s NBC Today devoted over four minutes of air time to weatherman Al Roker conducting a fawning interview with First Lady Michelle Obama. In what Roker teased as a "revealing conversation," he asked Obama: "Who´s the best cook in the family?" [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] Roker had the friendly chat with the First Lady while attending the Kids State Dinner at the White House on Friday, something he promoted during the segment: "The tiniest top

Comments:
Al meant to ask the great lobster and champagne lover, "Which White House chef is the best in the family?"

What else can we expect from State run media? NBC is an arm of the White House press office and the DNC. CBS and ABC are equally corrupt!

Sam Kass. His cooking came in packages to be put in the fridge and/or freezer and heated up throughout the week.

And then they moved into the WH with 24 hour pie, etc. And had the taxpayers to treat them to lavish restaurants and vacation trips.

Fat City, right?

Baltimore Ravens owner Stephen Bisciotti wrote a letter to the team´s fans and sponsors Tuesday, addressing the team´s handling of the Ray Rice situation and stating that the Ravens could have handled things differently. "First, let us say that we did not do all we should have done and no amount of explanation can remedy that," Bisciotti wrote in the letter, which was posted on the team´s website. Rice and his then-fiancee, Janay Rice, were involved in a Feb. 15 altercation in an Atlantic City hotel elevator.

As he mulls a presidential run in 2016, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush´s friends and associates are urging top Republican fundraisers and strategists to avoid throwing their lot in with another candidate until Bush makes a decision. "Before you do anything, let us know," was how one GOP insider described the message from Bush´s team to the Wall Street Journal.

Issa On HealthCare.gov Hack:

Oversight chairman Rep. Darrell Issa pledged Thursday evening that the Obama administration’s top Obamacare official must testify to Congress about a July security breach at HealthCare.gov. The federal Obamacare website was hacked into in July, The Wall Street Journal first reported Thursday. No personal consumer information was extracted from HealthCare.gov, but the “malicious attack” inserted malware into a weak part of the website that will help the hackers to attack other websites. Now, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa wants Marilyn Tavenner, head of the Obamacare agency the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, to finally testify before Congress

Reaction to NBC’s Luke Russert being added as a regular face to “Meet the Press” is getting the reaction one might expect: People are "angry." “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough will also have a regular role on the panel. The show is reportedly trying to add a conservative view. New York Post‘s Page Six popped the news late Wednesday night. Gawker‘s Hamilton Nolan wasted no time trashing him, calling him ”basically just a dim 29-year-old dude.” He predicted MTP will now be a “landfill full of the most useless NBC personalities.” A sampling from the Twitter masses: “I don’t think I’ve

Ultra-left-wing blogger Amanda Marcotte targeted an apparent societal "tyranny" in a Wednesday item for Slate: the "burden" that the "home-cooked meal" places on women in particular. Marcotte played up a recent study by a feminist professor and her two colleagues that underlined that "while home-cooked meals are typically healthier than restaurant food...the stress that cooking puts on people, particularly women, may not be worth the trade-off." The writer played up how men are supposedly a large part of this "tyranny" on "middle-class working mothers:" ...[W]omen find that their very own families present a major obstacle to their desire to provide

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is interrupting a weekend trip to return to the White House. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama changed his plans for Friday and will return to Washington late in the evening after fundraisers in New York and Rhode Island, instead of overnighting in New York as originally planned. Earnest said Obama himself made the decision to return to the White House and that it was unrelated to any current events. "He can sleep in his own bed, do a little work tomorrow, spend some time with his family" before traveling back to Westchester

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.” “Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.” McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public

FERGUSON, Mo. - "Tonight was a very good night in Ferguson." Those were the opening remarks made by Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol at a media briefing Thursday morning, describing a calmer mood among protestors and law enforcement. The crowds have lessened in recent days, Johnson said, and authorities did not notice any agitators among the protestors as they had in previous nights. When asked if Wednesday night´s heavy rains helped keep more people away, Johnson said authorities noticed calmer crowds prior to the weather moving in.

Obama´s inattention to Iraqi Christians

It´s starting to seem as if the Obama White House operates on a time delay. In the case of Iraq´s religious minorities, the results have been deadly. On June 10, the barbaric extremists called the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) captured the city of Mosul. By mid-July, they issued an edict to the Christians who remained to "convert, leave or be killed." The White House said nothing. Beginning on July 22, Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., took to the House floor six times to plead for attention from the Obama administration as a genocide threatened Iraq. Not a word from the president. On July

The beatings of three people in a Kroger parking lot Saturday night will not be investigated as a hate crime, according to police officials. Memphis Police Department director Toney Armstrong said he’s had lots of calls asking how the investigation would proceed but said there is “not sufficient enough evidence to investigate this as a hate crime.” “I know this has a lot of racial undertones,” Armstrong said during a news conference Monday at Memphis City Hall. “I’ve gotten a lot of calls and I know (Memphis Mayor A C Wharton) has as well.

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist. (Snip) By 2080, the bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, could see its habitat decrease by 75%, the report says. All of the habitat of the common loon, the state bird of Minnesota, could disappear in the lower 48

Washington — Panera Bread on Monday asked customers not to bring firearms into its restaurants, joining a growing list of retail and fast-food chains that have declared their establishments gun-free zones. The company said it wants to ensure that "customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome” in its restaurants. “We ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer," the eatery chain, which boosts 1,800 locations in the United States and Canada, said in a statement Monday.

Truett Cathy by tagging him "a symbol of intolerance" who presided over a "restaurant chain [seen by some] as a symbol of hate." Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true. Mr. Cathy, who died on Monday at 93, was by all appearances a humble Christian man from Georgia with little education who sold a simple sandwich: a

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with

Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
