  • Chiefs Still Unbeaten But ‘Sunday Night Football’ Ratings Down Again On Politically Charged Day

    Deadline Hollywood ^ | October 9, 2017 | Dominic Patten
    However, with a 10.6/18 in metered market results, last night was not so stellar for NBC and the NFL. In what is a seemingly ever escalating political atmosphere for the ratings battered game, that’s a dip of 3% from last week’s SNF Colts vs. the 46-18 winning Seattle Seahawks match-up. That is also a season low for SNF in a season that has been mired in controversy and ratings decline.

    However, it still was not a good result for CBS and the NFL as the matchup went late and delivered 9.9/18 in metered market ratings. That’s down 13% from the 2016 TNF opener on CBS and NFL Network when the New York Jets beat the Buffalo Bills 37-31. In the first of five TNFs that CBS has this year, last night’s game was shown on NFL Network and made its live debut on Amazon Prime.

    Until now, I have never offered the facts that expose these accusations as lies, although I have been in possession of them,” Cain wrote. “It is now time to do so, not only because the false accusations have received renewed attention with the publication of a book that discusses them, but more importantly because I refuse to live my life, pursue my radio and professional career or do anything else that God has left for me to do in this world with a dark cloud attached to my reputation that is not consistent with the truth.” Read more:

    Washington Examiner ^ | 8/7/16 | Jacqueline Klimas
    Hillary Clinton recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran for treason, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Sunday. "I'm not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton's private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman," he said on "Face the Nation." Cotton was speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran's nuclear program.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — A federal judge on Thursday scrapped the city of Cleveland's plans for a heightened-security zone that would have encompassed most of downtown during the Republican National Convention, saying that the restrictions are burdensome to people who want to express their free-speech rights. -Instead of suspending constitutional carry, why don't they reinstate the safe zone? It would have kept everyone's constitutional rights in tact (Unless suspending concealed carry was the goal to begin with).

    Newt Gingrich confirms that he's running for President in 2012 because you know he would never backtrack from a statement like this: Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Wednesday he shouldn't have called Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor a racist, but said he was still concerned that she would bring bias to her decisions.

    Sen. Ted Cruz took a break from quoting his favorite movie The Princess Bride on Wednesday to lift a line from another classic, The American President. Whether or not the Texas senator was aware, his retort to Donald Trump's recent attacks on his wife was almost identical to that of President Andrew Shepherd (Michael Douglas), who hits back against his prime political foe in defense of love interest Sydney Ellen Wade

    It’s about a union: the National Treasury Employees Union. The NTEU. A left-wing union representing 150,000 employees in 31 separate government agencies, including the IRS. A union that not only endorsed President Obama for election and re-election, but a union whose current president, Colleen Kelly, was a 14-year IRS agent and now is both union president and Obama administration appointee (of which more in a moment). It’s about 94% of NTEU union contributions going to Democrats in the Senate and House in 2012 — candidates who campaigned as vociferous opponents of the Tea Party. And the recently released report from...

    The Rev. Dr. Paul Smith Weblog ^ | March 23, 2008 | Rev. Dr. Paul Smith
    Sen. Obama, his campaign threatened by Rev. Wright’s sermons – or sermon snippets – played over and over again, has spoken out about racial difference and anger and the need to get beyond it in order to address effectively the serious problems that face us all. But like the politicians we discussed who avoid the tough issues, Obama has chosen to condemn rather than acknowledge the truth in Rev. Wright’s sermons. He does so while appropriately refusing to end his relationship with Wright who brought him to Christianity.

    Washington post ^ | March 23 2011 | Ezra Klein
    Let’s start at the beginning: Who is Steve Lerner? Steve Lerner is a union organizer best known as the architect of the remarkable Justice for Janitors campaign. He’s considered one of the smartest organizers, if not the smartest organizer, working in the labor movement right now. A month or two ago, when I began asking around for forward-looking labor thinkers who could give me some ideas for where labor should go after Wisconsin, his was the first name I was given — even though he’s no longer actually employed by his union. There was a good reason for that. At...
