I came across this video and had to smile. After watching the HBO show "Newsroom", I can only imagine the uproar in the control booth when Professor Caroline Heldman stood her ground and began to contradict and embarrass Sean on his own show. Sean Hannity himself must have been fuming after the show. I say..."It couldn't have happened to a more deserving person." I have to say that I am impressed that she stood her ground, stated the facts, and didn't capitulate to Sean on his own show.
I wasn't expecting it, but today ended up creating a Part 2 to the apparently ongoing "Double Standard" story. Fox News (I know...it's not really news) had a segment on their show yesterday (09/04/2013) which for convenience I linked below. In this segment guest Monica Crowley talked about the "double standard" I've recently been talking about. The only difference is that their version is of apparently a mirror universe (Like Mirror Mirror from Star Trek).
I've seen this video posted a few times, but I'll admit I was so busy recently that it took a few days for me to get around to watching it. I must say...this Prime Minister nailed it perfectly. Those of the "Christian" faith that are against Marriage Equality, aren't true Christians by definition, because they do not follow their own teachings. This "Pastor" as he claims to be tried in vain to discredit and otherwise embarrass the Prime Minister with his stance on Marriage Equality. What he received was sour disappointment and the proverbial egg on his face.
Over the past several days I've been witnessing a push from the conservative right against Obama's talks of military action in Syria. As someone who hates to speak about a topic without doing proper reasearch, I looking into the claims reading some of the posts that people had been spreading on social media. It took a great deal of willpower to not spit out my coffee in shear disbelief a the ramblings of these individuals.
