This Was CNN
PJ Media, by Michael A. Walsh

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/2/2013 8:01:51 AM

Last night’s vulgar stunt by somebody named Kathy Griffin, performed on somebody named Anderson Cooper in the course of “covering” the happens-every-year ball drop at Times Square for CNN, should rightly mark the end of the network as a serious news outlet. (You can watch it here.) No one should be surprised. CNN and indeed much of American journalism, has been heading this way since advent of the Snark Generation — Harvard-educated princelings who, having failed to land a writing job on The Simpsons, took their tiny little sacks

One of our staffers had half a dozen small children in the room when this happened. She´s still trying to explain. She can´t.

Kathy Griffin is the skank who is or was dating Bristol Palin´s baby daddy. I think I read something about him being a deadbeat father. They deserve each other.

No 7 second delay? Of course there was, but CNN chose to allow this pig on the air and hoped she would do something like this. I am 62 years old. I remember my parents saying"maybe I have lived too long." Well maybe I have too. I am so thoroughly disgusted with almost every aspect of my country- Obama, Congress, union thugs in small town America, legalized marijuana, assisted suicide, the death of quality health care, the likes of CNN and MSNBC, ABC,CBS, NBC. Murder of our diplomats with no consequence, a lying administration, a pres who left skid marks to get back to Hawaii, free speech and the 2nd Amendment on the verge of disappearing. All in 4 short years. Feel free to add to the list.

She was once a guest on Paula Deen´s cooking show and had to be bleeped every third sentence. Her alleged mind is preoccupied with adolescent sexual innuendo and overt sexuality. She is, in short, an attention-seeking, vulgar opportunist who thinks she is funny. She is merely pathetic.

When I saw her on Paula Deen´s show, I thought, "I doubt she´ll be back". I hope not for Ms. Deen´s sake. As for CNN´s inclusion of her in their show, it was poor judgment at best. Anderson Cooper´s reaction was exactly as it should have been -- horrified, embarrassed and not wanting to be on the same show as Ms. Griffin.

She needs to grow up. Adults whose speech and actions are peppered with sexual references and gestures reveal a mind not capable of intelligent discourse nor dignity, an arrested-development that is more pathetic than amusing, more sad than funny.

Kathy Griffin and CNN deserve each other. She has no career and has proven repeatedly she´ll do anything to get attention. CNN is doing everything it can to insure its demise. Yet, how many of the pseudo-intellectual left still watch CNN and claim to be more informed than the knuckle-dragging members of the Tea Party?

FTA: But this is what comes of gleefully abandoning one’s standards, as American journalism did once it renounced “objectivity” and proudly endorsed the Leftist agenda of non-judgmental society wrecking.

I have no words to describe the travesty that is a creature such as Kathy Griffin. But what a great (sad) quote Mr. Walsh provided to start my 2013 list.

If it weren´t for the extensive cosmetic surgery, Kathy Griffin would like the over-the-hill, washed up act she is. She does what she does in a pathetic and sick attempt to remain relevant. That CNN continues its association with her says the same about its relevance.

Perhaps as/more disgusting were continual scenes of the rabid kissing as the ball dropped in Times Square. I think the Left (photographer) wants us to advance to Orwell´s 1984 by 2014; so they put such scenes before our young people as the way to behave.
Originally, a Happy New Year kiss was meant as a simple wish -- not bedroom behavior.
I agree with #8.

The third word in this article is "vulgar", which is too kind. Kathy Griffin is ugly despite her extensive plastic surgery, and what makes her ugly is her atrocious conduct.
Griffin epitomizes everything that is wrong with Hollywood.

Let me toss in the ´tinfoil hat´ angle.

Job #1 at the alphabets is covering up and distracting attention away from tsunami of scandal and lawlessness that is our Executive Branch.

This type of stunt refocuses public outrage away from government crime and raises the bar for scandal at the same time.

....also provides an opportunity for the officially gay anchor to appear conservative and moderate and even embarrassed about matters of the flesh.

Touching.

For those unaware, Kathy Griffin has been Cooper´s sidekick on his New Year´s Eve shows for a few years now, and each year she strives to top the previous year´s "outrage." They appear to be show-biz buddies; a year ago she did a segment on his daytime tv show highlighting her vacationing with him at his summer retreat. Any embarrassment Cooper is claiming about Monday night is wholly insincere. They probably rehearsed and ran lines ahead of time.

This annual gig goes over big with Griffin´s gay audience, which is to say 99 percent of her fans. (No doubt she is more popular with gays than Cooper himself is.) At 52 and basically blind in one eye following bad Lasik surgery a few years back, Griffin works harder all the time at her "shock" antics. Her mock "dating" of Levi Johnston was similar publicity garner-ing, as was her obscene remark about Jesus at the Emmys, etc., etc. The list is long. No one is happier than Griffin that she has reaped all this attention from her routine the other night; mission accomplished. She must be hugging herself. And CNN, equally thrilled, probably has signed her up for next New Year´s Eve.

Well, my wife and I missed it all. We subscribe to DishNet TV-5 from France and watched a great variety show time- delayed to EST. I don´t have to understand French to appreciate the beauty and talent. The pap served up on
the networks is far more than we can stand. Last year we vowed we would watch ´Everybody Loves Raymond´ reruns and go to bed at ten before we would watch any ´ball-drop´ from the networks.

#30 nails it. Griffin and Cooper have been buds for years, she actually was making homosexual jokes at his expense years before he came "out". I remember watching a stand up routine from Griffin about 10 years ago, she was relatively new on the scene and some of her stuff was funny. She ended the routine by taking off her pants and finishing the show in her underwear.

Count me in. I mentioned in my cigar lounge the other day that I´m glad that I´m 61 and not 21. I don´t want to be around to see what´s going to happen. Given the brain-dead, entitlement junky electorate and the inevitable demographic trends going the wrong way, America is probably not coming back. Romney would have been a temporary fix at best.

I´d kind of like to be in on some of the coming civil unrest though.

Griffin seems to be the female version of this "uncle". She is a sad excuse for a woman. Wouldn´t want to be around when she crashes, there will be no friends, no attention, and who up there will be listening?

It will only get worse. There is absolutely nothing on main stream television that is either funny or clean. I wish Carol Burnett could come back.

I spend my New Years with friends in a cottage on a lake that does not have television. Turn the set off and don´t pay attention to it. That is the only way to get away from it.

Simple statements

Its CNN, low scoring ratings and stupid stunts.

Its Anderson Cooper propaganda minister and braindead journelist, can anyone recall an interesting show with him on it?

Its Kathy Griffin rude, crude and not very funny. Why is she still employed? Why would anyone want to watch her standard stick of stupidity?

In other words a grade school level liberal publicity stunt. I am sure the network PR morons are saying it was a good thing to have a tramp trying to give head to a homo. I am sure they really believe that.

As low as our culture has sunk, it can and will sink lower. It would seem there´d come a time when too much is too much, the bar has a long way to drop. The progs love this, the outraged are identified and can be targeted. I´m reminded of the opening to ´1984´ as theater-goers laugh uproariously at the killing of refugees.

#49: exactly!
We own a tv for the sole purpose of watching movies (it´s more comfortable than huddling around a laptop) and playing video games. Everything else we get off the internet. Every time we find ourselves in a hotel room or staying with family who have cable, the hubby and I are always amazed at how there is nothing on worth watching; 1000 channels and nothing on.

#49, I have my favorite shows like NCIS and Person of Interest but I´ll never feel the same way about the actress that plays Abby on NCIS.

When she recently mentioned that she wouldn´t mind being stuck in an elevator with Michelle Obama, I was sick. Yes I know that the writers write those lines for the actors, but I believe a conservative actress like Patricia Heaton wouldn´t have allowed it.

I never watch CNN and totally avoided any and all "midnite celebrations" by going to bed at 9:30.

The calendar changed the next morning and zippy was still prez when I awoke.

I told my hubby that this is the first year, I was depressed on New Year´s Eve. I asked why would anyone want to celebrate the demise of our country. Of course, the Leftist Socialists are happy. As for Griffin and Cooper, they deserve one another - both filthy people.

#8 is so right. You can add the glorification of abortion, watching them be gleeful about killing babies cannot be described, it´s so awful. I am trying hard to still love my dear country, but it´s getting harder. I´m 66 and the negative changes are so difficult to watch, and I don´t think it will get any better ever. I´m glad I got to grow up during the 50s and early 60s, before things went crazy.

We never watch CNN, and the fact that they would have this disgusting skank on their New Years Eve show tells you all you need to know. We watched the Twilight Zone marathon and got to sleep before midnight. I avoid all of this type of stuff as best I can, but you still can´t avoid all of it.

I too, am in agreement with previous posters regarding living too long(75) and the moral decadence in our culture and politics....However, I stick around for my Grandchildren, who I get to influence from time to time with positive hopefulness...But the main reason for my persistence is that I´m so afraid that when the shooting finally starts, I will have passed...My most fervent desire is to be on the front line of retribution with my antique Winchester Octagon barrel,40 Caliber, giving it back to the gun-grabing bastards 185 grains at a time...There is absolutely nothing wrong with our form of government...It requires but a modicum of simple morality to function properly, and it has been undeniably demonstrated that the occupants in those seats of government have NONE!! Our tree is withering for lack of proper nutrients..and water..I have a bucket...the brigade is forming...

This equine-faced woman is so desperate to get attention she´ll do anything for it. What a pitiful, rotgut example of womanhood. She´s certainly made her mark with me; she makes me gag. Anderson and CNN knew exactly what they were getting when they invited her on. As I recall, she pulled another stunt in a similar situation a few years back - something to do with her chest. She is one sickening warthoggish water-buffalo. My apologies to any and all innocent and endearing warthogs and water buffalo out there. CNN is "the pits" and apparently likes it there. They ´giggle´ at all the wrong things.

Interesting to hear the perspective of the older folks around here. I´m 31, so presumably I have to live through plenty more of this garbage. It´s sad to watch.

I really thought things were far gone when Sandra Fluke addressed the Democratic convention. A woman demanding that other people subsidize her sex life against their will, and being hailed as a hero for it, seems like the apotheosis of cultural silliness in a nation increasingly prone to ineffectual naval-gazing. I have no confidence that we have seen the worst of it.

I remember watching an interview with the very elderly historian Jacques Barzun, in which he said our culture is decadent and will sooner or later hit the skids, but thankfully a regeneration will come out of that collapse, as it always does. Hey, that´s fine for Barzun -- he was old when he gave the interview, and he recently passed away. Am I supposed to be relaxed because stuff will get better 200 years from now?!?!

Kathy Griffin is on the David Letterman show right now. Everyone laughing and applauding - gay jokes, gay references, obscene references, ad nauseam. Watched to see if she had an apology for her revolting behavior. Stupid me. There aren´t words to describe her disgusting appearance. I wonder if the TV show of David Letterman (a current Kennedy Center Honoree) is always this vulgar and crass.

Agree, #8 and all those who wonder if they´ve lived too long. Every day there is another outrage against decency and our American way of life.

The TV in our home was turned on to the Dick Clark show just to watch the ball drop, and we were commenting on how awful New Year´s Eve programming has become. We didn´t even know who most of those people were. At midnight, we turned off the TV and had a family party, which we´ve done since the kids, now grown, were small.

If Anderson Cooper were a genuine newscaster, he would have asked to go to commercial, and come back without that "skank" as so many here have called her.

Looking at Costs and Risks,
Many Skip Health Insurance
New York Times, by Abby Goodnough    Original Article

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Steve Huber, an affable salesman who is still paying off an unexpected medical bill, was not among the millions of Americans who signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act during the enrollment period that ended March 31. After seeing television ads for Kentucky’s new online insurance marketplace, Mr. Huber, 57, made several attempts to explore the website but found it too complicated. Moreover, his income has dropped in recent years, he said, and he felt certain that he could not afford coverage. So he never priced plans or researched whether he qualified for financial assistance. “I

Fox News’ Brit Hume appeared on John Gibson’s radio show Monday to give his thoughts on the latest news about NBC’s efforts to make Meet The Press work with host David Gregory, as well as the Sunday morning political talk show landscape in general. As a regular guest on Fox News Sunday, Hume said he thought Chris Wallace was the most accomplished of the Sunday morning hosts, but also had some sympathy for Gregory, who he suggested should never have taken the Meet The Press gig in the first place. Hume said he found it “pretty unusual” that NBC would

John Boehner´s double-speak rattles

When it comes to immigration, many Republican members of the House have long distrusted their leader, Speaker John Boehner. Now, things have gotten even worse. Boehner has assured members who oppose comprehensive immigration reform that nothing will be done on the issue until the Obama administration "can be trusted to enforce our laws." Given the average GOP Congressman´s view of Barack Obama, that means "never." That´s certainly how many members interpreted the speaker´s words.

Vice President Joe Biden is warning his Democratic base to drop the apathy and pledge to vote in the fall midterms or see the administration´s achievements like Obamacare get sunk by a Republican majority in the House and Senate. He headlined his latest scare-mail “If we lose,” and warned that the GOP will pass the tough budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan, and repeal Obamacare. “If Republicans hold on to their majority in the House and win back control of the Senate in November -- and believe me, that´s a real possibility -- then I can guarantee you that we´ll

Easter services today are expected to kick off a record-breaking week at the Vatican. Two beloved modern popes — John Paul II and John XXIII — are to be canonized at the Vatican next Sunday by Pope Francis. There will be services all week, which could draw the most pilgrims ever to the Catholic capital. John Paul II is remembered for helping to bring down communism and for inspiring a generation of Catholics. Many now call him “The Great,” only the fourth pope to have earned the moniker.

U.S. Attorney General Holder was clearly inferring racism especially given the room at the National Action Network which included one of America´s top race baiters, Al Sharpton. Democrats are pushing a racism narrative in a cynical, divisive election year political ploy. They want to paint Republicans as someone to run away from. In the last week we see a pattern of top Democrats playing the race card expertly as they always do. As reported in the Daily Caller On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented,

What Wall Street Is Saying

Michael Lewis’s latest best-seller, Flash Boys, released on March 31, depicts what he describes as the latest financial outrage in a “story of scandals… linked together tail to trunk like circus elephants.” This time it’s high-frequency trading, the use of algorithms and super-fast computing that allows stock trades to be executed automatically in a matter of milliseconds. Lewis argues that many high-frequency trading firms make money by essentially trading in front of large orders that they can see coming in before anyone else, thanks to super-fast data connections with stock exchanges. While many of the high-speed trading firms themselves are small and

Dozens of suspected al Qaeda fighters have been killed in the latest in a string of strikes against the terror organization’s Yemen affiliate over the weekend, Yemeni officials say, just days after the affiliate released a video of a large daytime militant rally. A Yemeni official with the Supreme Security Committee told ABC News overnight that on April 19, an American drone strike took out 10 members of al Qaeda but also killed three civilians who were nearby. The civilians “were in a pickup truck that suddenly appeared next to the car that was targeted,” the official said. The next day the

Obama Handles Russia Like Republicans:
Overpromise, Under-Deliver, and Write Off
National Journal, by Ron Fournier    Original Article

President Obama came to office nursing dreams "of forging a new partnership" with a stubborn rival. When times got tough, he abandoned the relationship and adopted dusty zero-sum gain policies of his predecessors. To allies and rivals alike, he looks naïve, weak, and disconnected. This is the portrait presented Sunday by Peter Baker in his front-page New York Times story titled, "In Cold War Echo, Obama Strategy Writes Off Putin." What struck me about the piece is the unstated parallel between Obama´s handling of Russia and Republicans, and how in both cases the gap between promise and performance illustrates a fundamental

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
