New York Post, by New York Post

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 2/20/2013 7:25:58 AM

High-profile morning anchor Soledad O’Brien is on her way out at CNN as new boss Jeff Zucker moves Erin Burnett into her morning slot, Page Six has exclusively learned. We’re told award-winning journalist O’Brien has indicated she is ready to leave after she was initially promised a plum prime-time slot, but that role has so far failed to materialize. A source tells us: “The deal to move Erin to the morning alongside Chris Cuomo is basically done. Soledad had been

Her next show on Current/AlJazeera can be titled "Latino, Black, Biased and Unemployed in America."

Soledad O"Brian: award winning journalist? IT JUST GOES TO SHOW HOW WORTHLESS AWARDS OFTEN ARE. I have watched the woman, and I am actually better. I read the talking points with more discretion.

I´m sure Zucker won´t suffer any recriminations for throwing a black reporter under the bus.Her bias really shows through too much,I guess they´re trying to get "objective" people in there which is really laughable from these recycled leftists.

First Point - Who Cares!

Second Point - She won an award? For what? She is a simpleton and a racist. Any journolism award given to her has about as much meaning as the Nobel Peace Prize meant when they gave it to Zippy for doing nothing.

#4, Oh, come on, 0bama has done more than nothing. He has given automatic rifles to Mexican Drug Lords so they can keep the peace in their neighborhoods by killing everyone with whom they disagree. He kept the peace by starting a war in Libia to overthrow Kadaffi. He also kept the peace by slipping weapons into Syria. He is also trying to keep the peace in the US by removing weapons from bitter-clinger, right-winger terrorists. Boy, some people just can´t give 0bama a break - just because he is black.

If the CNNers and their media brethren won´t be honest with themselves, we must fill the void again:

O´Brien was hired strictly because of her odd clash-of-ethnicities name, her cuddly-but-exotic, we-think-she´s-probably-Hispanic-but-not-in-an-overt-Charo-way appearance and her femaledom.

In this way she predated Barack Obama as the acceptable face of a minority by several years but like her beloved president she is vapid, shallow and completely reliant on the autocue.

CNN’s Chief International Correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, informed network anchor Wolf Blitzer on Thursday that there was no indication that Russian forces were planning to intervene militarily in Ukraine. Less than 24-hours later, Russian forces militarily intervened in Ukraine. “Some are concerned we might be on the eve of another Cold War,” Blitzer fretted. “What, if anything, would stop Vladimir Putin from getting involved?” “There doesn’t seem to be any notion that he is actually going to do so,” Amanpour insisted.“The U.S. right now says it only sees Russia’s military exercises ‘within the normal range,’” she continued. “It does not see

First lady Michelle Obama will unveil a proposal Tuesday that would ban marketing junk food and sodas in schools — an unusually aggressive position for the administration that could draw the ire of school districts, food companies and conservatives. Schools would no longer be able to house vending machines that sport images of their flagship sodas, have posters promoting unhealthy food and drinks or use cups in cafeterias that market high-calorie beverages, among other forms of promotion, according to administration officials.The proposal — part of an updated school wellness policy crafted by the Department of Agriculture — would require marketing of

RALEIGH, N.C. — Appearing on CBS News´ "Face the Nation" Sunday to talk about the winter storm that shut down the state last week, Gov.

"Governor, a couple of years ago, you made a remark that caught a lot of people´s attention. You said that global warming is ´in God´s hands,´" Schieffer said.

He phoned the main line of the Phoenix Police Department and was forwarded to the employee-assistance unit. Scott, founder of Shadow Mountain Mortuary, had a simple proposal. Let him take care of the entire funeral service, he said. At no cost. The officer was just one of at least a dozen fallen Phoenix police officers who would be laid to rest under Scott’s respectful watch at no cost to the families, police Cmdr. Tracy Montgomery said.

Richmond, Va. — A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld a 2012 court ruling that North Carolina´s decision to issue special anti-abortion license plates is unconstitutional because the state doesn´t offer similar plates supporting abortion rights. In a unanimous ruling, a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the proposed "Choose Life" plates represent "blatant viewpoint discrimination squarely at odds with the First Amendment. "The decision upholds a December 2012 ruling by U.S. District Judge James Fox in Raleigh, which came 13 months after he blocked the state from issuing the plates while a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union was pending.

There´s no doubt the vast majority of Republicans in Congress would repeal Obamacare if they could. Most GOP "alternative" bills begin with a clause to repeal the Affordable Care Act before proceeding to outline new policies to put in its place. Of course, GOP lawmakers don´t have any hope of actually repealing the law as long as Barack Obama, and his veto pen, are in the White House.Now some Republicans are looking at what might be done to undo as much as possible of the Democrats´ national health care scheme without actually repealing it.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not

President Obama´s proclaimed strategy to "bypass Congress" — most conspicuously his broad rewriting of the Affordable Care Act — has given unusual prominence to a fairly arcane legal doctrine: standing. Standing is what is preventing a potential blizzard of litigation against the president´s unilateral decrees, and ironically, it´s a doctrine liberal jurists have long decried. To challenge the government in federal court, it isn´t enough to simply believe that the government´s conduct is illegal or even unconstitutional. Federal courts can hear only specific disputes about the law as applied to particular people. To be heard in court, a person must have
