    Washington, DC – Select Investigative Panel Chairman Marsha Blackburn is calling on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to investigate potential violations of federal law by StemExpress and a number of abortion clinics. In a letter to the Office of Centralized Case Management Operations at HHS, Chairman Blackburn asks Director Jocelyn Samuels to examine evidence uncovered by the Select Panel’s investigation that shows StemExpress and the abortion clinics violated the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The HIPAA privacy rule is a patients’ rights law, designed to empower the patient to determine when and...

    RALEIGH, NC-- It was suppose to be fun, but some say a party among North Carolina State Students might have crossed the line. The theme, Country Music Television versus Black Entertainment Television. Students were encouraged to dress in costumes that imitated both cultures. Some costumes found offensive by students played into the negative stereotypes of what is believed to be black culture. The party was held off campus last Thursday, on the heels of the university's "Diversity Week".

    CMT just issued a press release promoting “an evening full of laughs” featuring comedian Ron White. “The cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking White headlines the 90-minute special,” said CMT, “giving his thoughts on being banned from the popular dating site ChristianMingle,” among other hilarious topics. I find it interesting that CMT, which is owned by Viacom (which also owns MTV and VH1), would so prominently mention White’s riff on ChristianMingle. Especially in the wake of the recent arrest of a Del Mar, Calif. man charged with raping a woman he met on the online dating site. Police suspect that Sean Patrick Banks used...

    Groundbreaking study published in Nature MedicineMAYWOOD, Il. -- A groundbreaking study in the journal Nature Medicine suggests what could become the first effective treatment for a debilitating and fatal disease of the central nervous system called SCA1.

Researchers found that in mice that had SCA1, replenishing this protein lead to significant improvements in muscle coordination and balance. Ameet R.

  • Julianne Hough: My Music Video Was Too Hot for CMT (Country Music Ping!)

    Country singer and actress Julianne Hough’s career may be on the rise, but some say she is too hot for television, at least in one video. The 22-year-old “Burlesque” star recently revealed that her video for her single “Is That So Wrong” was dubbed too steamy to air on Country Music Television (CMT). The video features the sexy star playfully dancing in her apartment and removing articles of clothing. And it was that lack of clothing that she says got the video banned from the airwaves.

    Viacom networks MTV, BET and CMT are giving an hour of free air time to President Obama less than three weeks before the midterm elections. The so-called “A Conversation with President Obama” will be live and commercial-free on six Viacom networks at 4 p.m. on Thursday. The networks will not give equal time to a Republican before the election, according to a spokeswoman. MTV denies that the Obama hour of TV is political, despite the timing, weeks before the midterm elections.

    Two research teams have independently decoded the entire genome of patients to find the exact genetic cause of their diseases. The approach may offer a new start in the so far disappointing effort to identify the genetic roots of major killers like heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s. In the decade since the first full genetic code of a human was sequenced for some $500 million, less than a dozen genomes had been decoded, all of healthy people. Geneticists said the new research showed it was now possible to sequence the entire genome of a patient at reasonable cost and with...

    A reality show coming to cable network CMT will have recent National Bowhunters Hall of Fame inductee Ted Nugent hunting the most dangerous game — man. "Runnin' Wild ...

Unlike some of Nugent's previous forrays into reality television, the show will not be taped on his Leoni Township property. According to his publicist,...

    Jeff Foxworthy's Passionate, Show-Stopping Speech at the CMT Awards Nashville, TN -- The CMT Music Awards have a grand history of show-stopping performances, all of them rendered by such country music superstars as Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Gretchen Wilson and Big & Rich, to name only a few. But it was host Jeff Foxworthy who stopped the show this year, when the generally genial comedian delivered a powerful, heartfelt and somewhat angry speech just before introducing the last song of the night, the haunting Anyway by Martina McBride. Foxworthy had during his previous two gigs as host of CMT's annual...

    The Dixie Chicks are nominated for video of the year at the CMT Music Awards — their first such nomination since country radio unofficially banned them. But since Monday's Country Music Television awards are voted on by fans — not industry insiders — don't look for a big thaw between radio and the Chicks. The Texas trio is up against Toby Keith, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, George Strait, Sugarland, Rascal Flatts and Kenny Chesney for the night's top honor. They're also nominated for group video of the year for their single "Not Ready to Make Nice." The Chicks have been...

No audio yet, but Haggard's new Chicago Wind CD, out next Tuesday (Oct. 25), includes the tune in the headline. Chet Flippo (yes, the early Rolling Stone senior editor, now at Country Music Television as CMT/ Editorial Director) quotes some of it: "Yea, men in position but backing away/Freedom is stuck in reverse/Let's get out of Iraq and get back on the track/And let's rebuild America first." Haggard also comments on the current political and social scene in the song, "Where's...
