    Indiewire ^ | February 24, 2017
    It took two years and two tries for “Doubt” to make the CBS lineup – but now the show has been canceled after just two weeks. The Eye network has pulled the plug on the show effective immediately; next week, CBS will air a repeat of “Bull” in the show’s Wednesday 10 p.m. (ET) time slot. The second season of “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” will then slide into the spot permanently on Wednesday, March 8, following a two-hour “Survivor” premiere.
  • You stay classy, you canceled MSNBC hosts [One of them used an expletive to sign off]

    In the wake of the decision by MSNBC to drop three of its most incendiary liberal programs, former hosts Ed Schultz of The Ed Show and Alex Wagner of Now with Alex Wagner exited with about as much class as you'd expect. Schultz apparently threw a tantrum and refused to appear on his last show.  In his place, Michael Eric Dyson gave what Mediaite calls an "understated" farewell. First and perhaps most importantly, Ed Schultz wasn’t even present to give his final MSNBC farewell — due to “pre-existing scheduling conflicts,” MSNBC told us. Instead Michael Eric Dyson guest-hosted the full hour and saved...

    On the heels of Brandeis University’s controversial decision to rescind an honorary degree to women’s rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, organizers of a week-long pro-Israel event called iFest, which is currently underway at the University of California, Irvine, say they have been forced to cancel a scheduled speech by Nonie Darwish, a prominent pro-Israel speaker. Lead iFest organizer Daniel Narvy, president of the campus group Anteaters for Israel (AFI), who will be joining the Israeli Defense Forces this summer, says Orange County Hillel was primarily responsible for the cancellation and that the incident is another example of Hillel’s marginalization of...
  • Kindergarten show canceled so kids can keep studying to become ‘college and career ready.’ Really.

    Kindergarten show canceled so kids can keep studying to become ‘college and career ready.’ Really. By Valerie Strauss April 26 at 11:59 am An annual year-end kindergarten show has been canceled at a New York school because the kids have to keep working so they will be “college and career” ready. Really. That’s what it says in a letter (see below) sent to parents by Ellen Best-Laimit, the interim principal of Harley Avenue Primary School in Elwood, N.Y., and four kindergarten teachers. The play was to be staged over two days, May 14 and 15, according to the school’s calendar....
  • Udall’s office pushed back hard on number of health care cancellations

    At the height of controversy surrounding President Obama’s promises on the federal health care overhaul, U.S. Senator Mark Udall’s office worked assiduously to revise press accounts that 249,000 Coloradans received health care cancellation notices. Because the 249,000 figure was produced inside the Colorado Division of Insurance, Udall’s office lobbied that agency to revise the figure, or revise their definition of what qualified as a cancellation. From an email inside the Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI), Director of External Affairs Jo Donlin bluntly stated to her colleagues: Sen. Udall says our numbers were wrong. They are not wrong. Cancellation notices affected...

    Desperate people do desperate things. In this case, Senator Mark Udall asked the state's insurance commission to downplay the number of policy cancellations by changing the definition of "cancelled." Breitbart: CompleteColorado.com reports that emails show U.S. Senator Mark Udall's (D-CO) office pressured the Colorado Division of Insurance to downplay the number of insurance cancellations caused by the rollout of ObamaCare. A full 249,199 Colorado citizens were victimized by ObamaCare's cancellations. According to the emails, Udall's office hoped to change the definition of a "cancellation" as a way to lower the number. All of this occurred late last year as the...
  • I Couldn't Keep My Plan . com [new website tells Obamacaree horror stories]

    President Obama promised the American people that under the Affordable Care Act (sometimes called ObamaCare), “If you like your health care plan, you can keep you health care plan, period.” He also promised that "the only thing that will change for you under this plan is the amount of money you will spend on premiums. That will be less than you are spending now.” Now that the reality is unfolding, it turns out both those promises have been broken in a way that has impacted many people. The Civitas Institute asked real North Carolinians to share how they have been...
  • Jarrett: Obamacare doesn’t force you off your plan; your insurance company does,

    It’s just one tweet, but the sheer mendacity requires its own post. With the media finally in “now it can be told” mode since Obamacare passed and President Obama was reelected, pretty much everyone is admitting what all of us knew four years ago— that no, not everyone would be able to keep their plans if they liked their plans. And, yes, the Obama administration knew it just as sure as its critics did. It was a lie and an obvious one, but the administration, much of the media, and Obamacare supporters happily acted as if it were true and...

    "If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan." This was one of President Obama's key talking points when selling the Affordable Care Act, and it was never true — as many of the 14 million Americans currently covered by individually-purchased health plans are now learning. As Kaiser Health News reports, individual market insurers are sending out rafts of cancellation notices, telling subscribers they have to change to new plans starting in 2014. Here's why:

    The United States Congress canceled the delivery to Turkey of 10 Predators—unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)—following Turkish intelligence chief Hakan Fidan's disclosure of the identity of 10 Iranians who had been allegedly working for Mossad with the Iranian intelligence service, the Turkish newspaper Taraf daily reported. According to the report, the claims about Fidan can be traced back to the year after the Mavi Marmara incident in 2010 when the Turkish intelligence service suspended relations with the Mossad and shared information about the Israeli agency with Iran. …
  • Thousands Of Consumers Get Insurance Cancellation Notices Due To Health Law Changes

    Kaiser Health News ^ | October 21, 2013 | By Anna Gorman and Julie Appleby
    Health plans are sending hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters to people who buy their own coverage, frustrating some consumers who want to keep what they have and forcing others to buy more costly policies. The main reason insurers offer is that the policies fall short of what the Affordable Care Act requires starting Jan. 1. An estimated 14 million people purchase their own coverage because they don’t get it through their jobs. Calls to insurers in several states showed that many have sent notices. Florida Blue, for example, is terminating about 300,000 policies, about 80 percent of its individual...

    My sources tell me House Republicans have postponed tonight’s vote on their plan to end the fiscal impasse. “The votes aren’t there,” says a leadership aide. “We’ve been amending the bill all day, but we’ve been unable to get people around this strategy.” This development leaves Speaker John Boehner with few options as Thursday’s debt-ceiling deadline nears, and it throws the action back toward the Senate, which has been working on a bipartisan package.

    Aerosmith canceled a show in Indonesia after authorities there said they had foiled a bomb plot targeting the Myanmar Embassy. Concert promoter Ismaya Live cited safety concerns as the reason for the cancellation, but it wasn’t clear if there was a direct connection to the alleged embassy plot. The American rockers were scheduled to perform this coming Saturday for a nearly sold-out crowd of 15,000 in the capital, Jakarta, said Helmi Sugara, event organizer spokesman. …

    I’d like to give a nudge today to everyone out there to do something that I did back in 2009 and have never regretted since: cancel your cable TV service and stop your newspaper delivery. If enough people did this, it would decimate the Democrats’ most powerful propaganda tools: the Comcast-owned networks of NBC and MSNBC, CNN, and the other dinosaur media outlets that comprise the Left’s Ministry of Truth (Minitrue, for short) that serves Barack Obama with cultish devotion. Since you can’t just cancel MSNBC and NBC or CNN, you’ll need to cancel your cable TV service altogether. This...

    A year after the world’s most famous talk-show host hung up the towel on her solo act, Oprah Winfrey is finding the behind-the-scenes work is far less glamorous. Winfrey’s OWN cable network, part owned by Discovery Communications (DISCA: 48.18, -0.15, -0.31%), could lose as much as $143 million this year, on top of the $107 million of negative cash flow it booked in 2011, according to SNL Kagan. The bleak view comes despite efforts by the network to cut costs, including letting go 30 employees -- or 20% of its staff -- earlier this week and canceling Rosie O'Donnell's show...

    Donald Trump has backed out of moderating a Republican debate because, he says, he’s still considering running for president as an independent candidate. In a statement on Tuesday, Trump said that GOP candidates are “very concerned” that he will announce an independent candidacy after “The Apprentice” ends, and that they won’t agree to a debate with him unless he rules that out. Which he won’t do. “It is very important to me that the right Republican candidate be chosen to defeat the failed and very destructive Obama Administration, but if that Republican, in my opinion, is not the right candidate,...
