close Video Media furor as Russians charged Trump draws flak over Mueller indictments. This is a rush transcript from "Media Buzz," February 18, 2018. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated. HOWARD KURTZ, HOST: On the Buzz Meter this Sunday, saturation coverage for a bombshell indictment as Robert Mueller charges 13 Russians with election meddling and news organizations turn the spotlight on President Trump, who has always been skeptical about the hacking by Moscow. The president claims vindication, while the press says the charges prove the Russia probe is no hoax. Who is right? The horrifying school shooting in Florida sparks yet another media debate about, yes, gun control and mental health and attacks on the president's response. (START VIDEO CLIPS) MEGYN KELLY, NBC: The NRA is too powerful. Our politicians are too weak. And the guns are too ubiquitous. S.E.

By L. Scott Lingamfelter In our current age, it was as predictable as it was tragic. Bewildered is too polite a term to characterize what many of us feel after another mass murder of innocent children. The students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, awoke this Valentine’s Day with the reasonable expectation that they would go to school, learn, play, and enjoy school life. It wasn’t to be. The lives of 17 students and staff were destroyed. Another 15 were seriously injured and thousands of other students, their friends and families, as well as millions of Americans, are left wondering, “What on Earth is happening in our country?” *** I attended public and private schools in Richmond. But when I graduated in 1969, I had never witnessed the violence in schools that we see today. It would have been unthinkable. Yet we now find ourselves lamenting another school shooting that shatters lives, hopes, and dreams. It’s nauseating, but so … [Read more...] about L.

"Harvest" musician accuses tech giant of "building their wealth on music's back and paying nothing to the artists" Tim Kenneally, provided by Published 11:17 am, Saturday, February 24, 2018 Image 1of/1 CaptionClose Image 1 of 1 Neil Young Goes on Epic Vent About Google 1 / 1 Back to Gallery As far as Neil Young is concerned, Google has anything but a heart of gold when it comes to compensating artists. “Harvest” musician Young vented at Google and other tech companies in a post published by Neil Young Archives on Friday, accusing them of “building their wealth on music’s back and paying nothing to the artists.” “Today, in the age of Facebook, Google and Amazon, it’s hard to tell how a new and growing musical artist could make it in the way we did,” Young wrote. “The Tech Giants have figured out a way to use all the great music of everyone from all time, without reporting an … [Read more...] about Neil Young Goes on Epic Vent About Google

AP By J. Warner Wallace | Fox News I didn’t become a Christian until the age of thirty-five, and prior to that time, I also found it disturbing when Christians said, “God spoke to me last night,” or, “Jesus told me I should do this (or that).” Behar expressed a similar concern when she told her co-hosts, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct. Hearing voices.” I can honestly remember saying something similar to a Christian co-worker back when I was a committed atheist. He claimed that God told him something, and I thought he was, well… crazy. But years later, after becoming a Christian myself, I began to understand exactly what believers mean when they use expressions like this, and it’s not necessarily what Joy Behar may think. I pressed my Christian friend, all those years ago, and asked him if he actually heard the … [Read more...] about What Do Christians Mean When They Say ‘God Spoke to Me?’

It’s not even past.Quoting William Faulkner may seem overly dramatic when the issue of the day involves Jane Fonda’s latest face lift. But add Megyn Kelly to the equation, and the blow-up that follows has little to do with Fonda’s nips and tucks. It’s all about Kelly’s history as a Fox News host. Liberals won’t forgive her for it. And TV’s liberal mean girls are especially mean as Kelly struggles to find a formula that works at her new home at NBC. Advertisement The latest Kelly controversy links back to an awkward segment that occurred during the premiere week of her show, when she told Fonda she looked “amazing” and went on to say: “I read that you said you felt you’re not proud to admit that you’ve had work done. Why … [Read more...] about Does Megyn Kelly really deserve this vitriol?
By Martha Ross | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: January 24, 2018 at 9:03 am | UPDATED: January 24, 2018 at 9:28 am Megyn Kelly apparently didn’t go into work Tuesday, the day after she used three minutes of valuable “Today” show airtime to offer a stinging “Hanoi Jane” rebuke of Jane Fonda and to defend her own actions in what has become the first great celebrity feud of 2018. Page Six reported that NBC didn’t tape Kelly’s live show on Tuesday, opting instead to air a pre-taped segment on sex trafficking. The programming choice seemed curious given that Kelly’s 9 a.m. hour would have been a good time to report on the announcement of this year’s Oscar’s nominations. “Today” often finds that interviews with nominees can be a ratings booster, Page Six added. After what the Decider called Kelly’s “mysterious” absence, she completely avoided the Fonda controversy when … [Read more...] about Megyn Kelly went shopping instead of doing her show after Jane Fonda rebuke, report says
