    Here’s my response to Suzanna Danuta Walters, the feminist studies professor who complained that “Women are underrepresented in higher-wage jobs” Suzanna Danuta Walters is a feminist studies professor at Northeastern University. In a recent Washington Post opinion column titled, “Why can’t we hate men?” she wrote:“Women are underrepresented in higher-wage jobs”So here’s my response: We should abolish feminist studies. And we should encourage more women to major in subjects that will get them higher-wage jobs, such as electrical engineering, petroleum engineering, computer science, physics, chemistry, applied mathematics, business, medicine, and law.

    BAMBERG, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT)-- Parents of a 5 year-old girl are furious. They say security video, taken on a Bamberg school bus, shows her being hit. Now, the 17-year-old accused of hitting her has a warrant out for his arrest. Jasmine's parents want to know why the high school student was allowed to ride the bus in the first place. Terry Peters says he immediately noticed the mark on his little girl's face when he picked her up from after school care on Thursday. "I'm very upset! I'm mad," Peters said. He says the daycare workers told him 17 year old...

    Late in July 2012, Phil Mickelson, one of the world's most famous golfers, received a phone call from a well-known professional sports gambler, William "Billy" Walters. At the time, U.S. authorities say, Mickelson owed Walters a gambling debt, and Walters had a hot stock tip: buy shares in the food company Dean Foods Co. Four days later, Mickelson owned $2.4 million worth of Dean Foods shares, according to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. A few weeks after that, he reaped a $931,000 profit when the company announced a spinoff that sent its share price soaring. Mickelson then paid off...

    Barbara Walters is certainly not immune to Bradley Cooper's charm. While interviewing Cooper for her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2015" special, the 86-year-old Walters reveals that she, like many, has a bit of a crush on the Oscar-nominated star. "I could just sit and stare at you but that would take too much time," she tells Cooper in the interview. "But I, I find you very screwable." Later in the interview, a flirtatious Walters asks if the Joy star, 40, knows he's handsome, adding, "I think you're handsome, I think you're sexy."

    When Mary Kay Letourneau Fualaau was forced to go public in 1997 with an affair she was having with her former sixth grade student, Vili Fualaau, after she became pregnant with his child, it was the teacher-student sex scandal heard around the world. At the time, Mary was a 34-year-old, married teacher in Seattle, who already had four children of her own. Vili was just 13 years old. Mary was arrested and served seven and a half years in prison. Today, Mary is 53 and Vili is 31. The couple is still together and are about to celebrate their 10th...

    One thing that neither Barack Obama nor his acolytes in politics and the media lacked was confidence. DAVID BROOKS: So there's a lot of very smart people [around Obama], and it's a testament to Obama's confidence. You know, there was a great quote in a Ryan Lizza piece in the New Yorker about Obama's confidence. And I'm not going to get it exactly right, but he essentially said, "I'm a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policy than my policy directors. I think I'm a better political director than my political director." It was a speech of...

    One thing liberals do extremely well is project their own inadequacies, emotions and so on, to others. John Podesta, couldn’t wait to announce, in his own way, the fact that he was once again wielding executive power over Americans by comparing House Republicans to the Jim Jones cult. First, the ideology behind what Jim Jones had setup in Guyana is much more in line with what the imbecile Podesta obviously believes. If there is a political cult in this country, it is mainly comprised of the followers of the Democrat party; its elected officials in Congress, the fainters, the weepers,...

    For those who believe in traditional values, Christmas, and the holiday season in general for all those of faith, represent a very special and even sacred time of reflection, gratitude and hope. Unless of course, you are one of the leading voices of the liberal mainstream media and you want to intimate yet again that Barack Obama may be at least a figurative deity here on Earth. Said multi-millionaire, literally limousine-liberal Barbara Walters in response to CNN's further left-leaning Piers Morgan's question about why Obama is struggling so much at the moment: "He made so many promises. We thought he...

    A maintenance man sexually assaulted a 93-year-old woman before killing her, cutting her throat and leaving her half-dressed body on her bed for her granddaughter to find hours later, prosecutors told a Broward jury Monday. And for that crime, Elton Walters should pay the ultimate price, said Assistant Broward State Attorney Stephen Zaccor. Walters will spend his 67th birthday on Tuesday on trial for the Oct. 6, 2009, murder of Evelyn Norell, a resident of the Images condominium community where he worked on the 700 block of Northwest 108th Terrace in Pembroke Pines. He faces the death penalty if convicted.

    As NewsBusters reported last week, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called out vulgarian comedian Bill Maher for referring to her Down Syndrome son Trig as "retarded." On ABC´s The View Monday, co-host Barbara Walters astonishingly defended Maher saying, "I don´t think he intended it to be mean-spirited" (video follows with transcript and commentary): WHOOPI GOLDBERG: At a recent standup show in Las Vegas, comedian Bill Maher apparently called Sarah Palin’s five-year-old developmentally-challenged son Trig retarded. And Sarah blasted him on Twitter as a bully. Is that, is it, is he a bully? Is he a bad, what is he?

    Barbara Walters is saying goodbye to TV journalism. After more than half a century in the industry, the veteran ABC News anchor plans to retire next summer, an ABC spokesperson confirmed to The Times on Sunday night. Walters, 83, is set to make it official Monday morning on “The View.” And the network plans to make good use of her while it can. The legendary TV personality will continue to anchor and report for ABC as well as continue to appear on “The View” and anchor specials throughout the year.

    UPDATE: Barbara Walters was totally ambushed by ABC today, my sources say. And the reality is, if she were even contemplating retirement of some kind, either Liz Smith or Cindy Adams would have reported it first. Now every media outlet has picked up this crazy story, and it’s quickly becoming “fact.” Stay turned to see if Walters rebuts. Interesting timing too since “The View” is not live tomorrow, but taped for Good Friday. ABC really played it well.

    After intense media speculation over the weekend surrounding Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s future on ‘The View,’ on the March 11 edition of the talk show, host and creator Barbara Walters shot down any speculation that Hasselbeck had been fired. Speaking on Monday morning, Walters denied the rumors and stated that: The truth is we love Elisabeth. I like her personally, and she's just a wonderful person. But beyond that we value and appreciate her point of view, it's important to us, because Elisabeth helps give the show perspective and balance. And believe me she's tougher than she looks. She’s had to sit...

    Veteran ABC newswoman Barbara Walters has fallen at an inauguration party at an ambassador's home in Washington and has been hospitalized. Walters, 83, fell Saturday night on a step at the residence of Britain's ambassador to the United States, Peter Westmacott, ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider said. The fall left Walters with a cut on her forehead, he said. Walters, out of an abundance of caution, went to a hospital for treatment of the cut and for a full examination, Schneider said on Sunday. She was alert and was "telling everyone what to do, which we all take as a...
  • New Venezuelan Currency Nicknamed The “Bárbara”

    06/11/2012 9:57:27 AM PDT · by Ge0ffrey · 8 replies
    (CARACAS) In an effort to stanch the eroding value of Venezuelan currency, President Hugo Chávez has issued a new currency with a new name, the “Bárbara.” Chávez hopes to stem the steep tide of inflation by lopping off approximately two zeros and turning the 1000 bolivar coin into a coin valued at 12-1/2 “fuerte” or “strong” bolivars. Chávez has nicknamed the new coin Bárbara because its copper color closely matches Barbara Walters’s henna hair. In addition, Barbara’s recent interview broadcast on ABC’s Good Morning America has “restored my currency as the most important leader of the Western Hemisphere.” In her...

    Laura Ingraham appeared on Tuesday’s Fox & Friends, and spoke out about the controversy swirling around Rush Limbaugh’s remarks to Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke. Co-host Gretchen Carlson asked the conservative radio host whether there was a double-standard when liberals use slurs against conservatives. “When it was brought up on The View — I go on there every now and then and they’re always really nice to me when I go — when it was brought up on The View, Barbara Walters kind of laughed it off, like, ‘Joy, you call me that word all the time,’ and they...
  • The View - Bristol Palin (7-07-11)

    07/08/2011 12:56:22 PM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 196 replies
    WHY THIS MATTERS POLITICALLY. There are two games Governor Palin is fighting: one is the battle to take control of her political narrative, the other is taking control of her PERSONAL narrative--and this includes everything surrounding her FAMILY. Having Bristol go on The View is BRILLIANT, and does more for raising Governor Palin's political profile and stature than one may think! With Bristol giving the whole scoop about the details surrounding her pregnancy, she takes the narrative of the "dirty details" and "dirty secrets" away from the mouths of Levi Johnston and rumor-makers in the press, who would try to...

    As revelations about a possible scandal plaguing Rep. Anthony Weiner continue surface, the Democratic New York congressman continues to have defenders: On Monday’s broadcast of “The View,” co-host Barbara Walters went to bat for Weiner and proposed that the picture in question was intended for his wife and not for whom it was sent. “First of all, I have my own theory about why he took that picture, if indeed he did take that picture,” Walters said. “This is my theory – this doesn’t mean that it is right. He is married to this beautiful woman, whom I know, who...

    When ABC's Barbara Walters deems Sarah Palin one of the year's "Most Fascinating People," it's a backhanded compliment. Walters knows Palin has an adoring fan base, and she's definitely not part of it. When the Dec. 2 special began, Walters greeted Palin with "Many people find the thought of you as president a little scary." This is not what Walters asked President Obama in yet another gooey Barack-and-Michelle hour-long ABC interview on Thanksgiving night. Clearly, a large, energized chunk of the American electorate believed -- and continues to believe -- the idea of Obama as president to be horrifying. Instead,...
