From the New York Times:
A grand jury deliberating over the fate of Darren Wilson, the white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., has reached a decision in the case, according to a spokesman for the lawyers for the family of the teenager, Michael Brown.
The spokesman, Adner Marcelin, said that prosecutors notified the family that the grand jury decision would be announced later Monday.
Not surprisingly, Fox News jumped at Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel's resignation as yet another opportunity to attack President Obama. The excuse this time? Suggesting Hagel got the boot because he’s a Republican.Read more
As predictably as the sun rising in the east, Rudy Giuliani took to Fox News for some Republican racial rehab over his shocking comments on Meet The Press yesterday. Not surprisingly, the three Fox & Friends hosts could not have been more accommodating, understanding and helpful in promoting his talking points.Read more
Former Miss America Gretchen Carlson hates "political correctness" because she sees it as pandering to those degenerate secular, Muslim, minority, gay forces who are sending this country down the road to perdition. And, as an uber patriot, what really gets Gretch's red, white and blue dander up is when those nasty "PC" types attack the Pledge of Allegiance which, for Gretch and her fellow travelers, is right up with Jesus and the American flag as an object of worship. Last week, Gretch went on a rant about how evil "PC" is responsible for schools wanting to "dump" the Pledge and this makes her very angry.Read more
On Friday afternoon, the Republican-controlled House Select Intelligence Committee completely debunked Fox’s all-purpose Obama controversy of the last two years. And how did the “fair and balanced” network respond? By largely ignoring it. Not including the hilarious Fox report that suggested there should be more investigations.Read more
Heather Childers solicited Obama conspiracy theories last week when she asked viewers for their thoughts on the “real deal” that caused President Obama to leave his helicopter and go back into the White House. Obama said he had forgotten his Blackberry, however – dum, dum, dum, dum, DUM! – a photo showed it was already on him.Read more
Fox News’ idea of a “fair and balanced” discussion on President Obama’s immigration action was on full display on today’s Fox News Sunday. The three guests were Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA). That is imbalanced enough but both Republicans have an extremist reaction to the immigration action.Read more
Hey single ladies. You really need to put a ring on it because trust fund baby and famous "dick" Tucker Carlson is REALLY upset about the decline in marriage rates. And if you're not in a state of nuptial bliss, don't even think about having children because, according to Tucker Carlson, you're being irresponsible. In September, Carlson's 50's world view was knocked down by a sociologist and since then, Tucker has doubled down on his position in saying that marriage (and we assume he means heterosexual) is so vital that the President should be promoting it. Tucker's (and the religious right's) concern about the decline of traditional families was advanced on this morning's Fox & Friends which featured hate group leader Tony Perkins talking about how kids do best with a mother and father and anything else is a degenerate drag on civilization. Devout Christian and happily, heterosexually married Tucker Carlson agreed.Read more
