In last night's (May 9, 2012) season two finale of TV's hit show, "The Voice," NBC took first place in the 18-49 demographic share and third in total viewers with 9 million. The winner, Jermaine Paul, gave all the credit to Jesus.

From MTV.com: Universal Records added a new artist to their roster Tuesday night (May 8) when Jermaine Paul of Team Blake was named season-two champ during the finale of "The Voice," which also featured some major star power appearances from the likes of Justin Bieber and Flo Rida.

"I just wanted to say thank you for everyone that voted for me," the former Alicia Keys backup singer said on the sparkler-filled stage, before giving credit to his wife, children and parents. "God bless y'all, man. Nobody but Jesus, man, nobody!"

But New York Times critic, Jon Caramanica, makes no mention of Paul's unmistakable and emphatic praise to Jesus, instead focusing on his family:

But Mr. Paul had been brought low from his perch. He wept openly and embraced his father, and then his wife, who kissed his head nurturingly, as he veered off melody and sometimes stopped singing altogether.

Would it have been news if the winner praised Allah?

The article doesn’t say anything about what the winner said upon winning. In fact the article barely discusses the winner, it’s about the show itself. People shouldn’t try so hard to be offended. It wasn’t an omission, the article had a completely different focus.

No offense taken, rather I’m posing a question: Would it have been news if the winner praised Allah?

And why didn't Caramanica also accurately report it this way:

He gave credit to Jesus and embraced his father, and then his wife, who kissed his head nurturingly...

Probably not. But even if it was it wouldn’t fit in the story linked to. That story is about the show and how it works and how it compares to other talent shows specifically American Idol for flow and search for talent.

Becuase he is a programmed Atheist NWO faux journalist who is programmed to hate our Lord and to diminish any reference to Christ.

He is part of the media’s not-so-secret hatred of religious Christians and Jews.

When you look at a Liberal, don’t feel sorry for him, view him as a Nazi taking aim at you in France in 1942 or an NVA/Viet Cong soldier trying to cut your throat in 1968.

Godless, nanny-state, Orwellian, OWS, Soros-funded, Greentard Utopian Socialists want you starving, broke and dead.

There should be no mercy given to them, despite your Christian leanings to forgive. They want you and your kidsd dead with their policies of immigration and hatred of your religion, and the appeasement of Islam.

Right... well, nine million people heard quite clearly who he credited and that is something remarkable to me!

How many liberals have you murdered? Let me guess, zero.

Why not? Do you lack the courage of your convictions? Or do you just like the sound of your text, so bravely and anonymously posted on an internet forum?

If you were who you portray yourself as, you’d not be posting here, you’d actually be doing something besides posting dreck on the internet.

I am not speaking literally, I am speaking figuratively. I don’t mean ammo box, I mean ballot box.

I am saying that Liberals are an absolute threat to your way of life and to your children’s, in a myriad of reasons.

So shut the f up.
