MSNBC Moving Al Sharpton From the Weekly Dayside Lineup to Sunday Mornings

 

THE REAL QUESTION IS WHEN WILL AL SHARPTON’S LAST SHOW BE, PERIOD!

The Politico is reporting that Al Sharpton and his unwatchable show, ‘PoliticsNation,’ will be moved from its daily spot to Sunday morning. Sharpton stated in an interview,  “I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit. I wanted to be a Sunday morning newsmaker. I wanted to be Dr. Martin Luther King, not Larry King.” Note to Reverend Al, you are neither, you are a race baiter and race profiteer.

MSNBC should have admitted their mistake and just dumped Al altogether. Sorry, but is his is not watchable. Now his new show will be shown at Sunday morning at 8, because that is a big time viewership time slot.

Al Sharpton is leaving MSNBC’s weekday dayside lineup, and moving to Sunday mornings.

Sharpton’s last weekday “PoliticsNation” will be Sept. 4. He moves to Sundays a month later on Oct. 4, according to a memo sent to MSNBC staff by the channel’s president Phil Griffin Wednesday evening.

“I want to congratulate Al and his team. For four years they have done a terrific job bringing his voice and a big spotlight to issues of justice, civil rights and equality. And as many of you know, The Rev never missed a show,” Griffin wrote in the email. “I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do with a Sunday morning newsmaker program.”

This means that Sharpton will only air for one hour a week, rather that been seen 5 times a week on a daily basis. I guess for that we should say thank you to BSNBC. This is all a part of the shakeup at MSNBC in an attempt to get ratings that actually can be measured.

Crazed Gunman Fatally Shoots WBDJ7 Reporter & Camara Man in Middle of Live TV Interview – VIDEO (Update: Victims Allison Parker & Adam Ward)(Update: Shooter ID’s as Vester Flanagan, Also used the name Bryce Williams)

 

HORRIFIC MURDER OF REPORTER AND CAMERAMAN AS THEY DID A LIVE O AIR INTERVIEW …

It is something that one would never think they would see. In the middle of a live TV interview, a WDBJ reporter and her cameraman were shot dead. This did not take place in Iraq or Afghanistan, the double live on air murder took place in Virginia. The shooting happened around 6:45 a.m. at Bridgewater Plaza in Franklin County, as Parker interviewed Gardner about the upcoming 50th anniversary festivities for Smith Mountain Lake, a local tourism destination. The murder victims were reporter Victims Allison Parker and her camera man Adam Ward. The individual who was being interviewed, Vicki Gardner, executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, was shot in the back, and transported to the hospital.

The live spot by reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward was nothing out of the ordinary: They were interviewing a local official at an outdoor shopping mall for a tourism story. Then, at about 6:45 a.m., morning show viewers saw her suddenly scream and run, crying “Oh my God,” as she fell. Ward fell, too, and the camera he had been holding on his shoulder captured a fleeting image of the suspect holding a handgun.

WDBJ quickly switched back to the anchor at the station, her eyes large and jaw dropping as she said, “OK, not sure what happened there.” The station later went live again, reporting on their own staff as the story developed.

WARNING – This is the live video when the shooting took place

UPDATE I: WDBJ Newsroom Reacts Emotionally to On-Air Deaths of Reporter, Photographer as Tragic Personal Details Are Revealed

On the air, several shocked WDBJ-TV anchors reacted to the tragedy and remembered the victims:

“We realize, we cover stories of people being shot all the time, and so now we realize firsthand what so many of you have sadly gone through,” one of the anchors said as she fought back tears. “That when it’s someone you know; and someone you love and care about; and someone you work with day in and day out; and someone so young, it makes it so tough.”

UPDATE II: Parker and Ward died at the scene. Their interview subject, Vicki Gardner, was in stable condition later Wednesday after surgery for her wounds.

On Wednesday, after Parker and Ward’s deaths, Twitter and Facebook accounts under the name Bryce Williams shared graphic video of the shooting filmed from the perspective of the gunman. However, after sharing the videos, his Facebook and Twitter accounts were later suspended.

UPDATE III: Here’s What We Know About The Man Who murdered  Allison Parker & Adam Ward.

Vester Flanagan, who also used the name Bryce Williams, was a former TV reporter for WDBJ. He uploaded videos online showing himself fatally shooting WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward on Wednesday.

The man who authorities said fatally shot Virginia reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward during a live broadcast Wednesday before killing himself is a former television reporter for the same station.

Vester Lee Flanagan II, 41, who also used the name Bryce Williams, was employed at WDBJ-TV between 2012 and 2013 as a multimedia journalist, the station’s general manager, Jeff Marks, said.

Speaking Wednesday on air, his former WDBJ colleagues said that Bryce Williams was the name he used on television.

“Vester was an unhappy man. We employed him as a reporter and he had some talent in that respect and some experience,” Marks said. “He quickly gathered a reputation of someone who was difficult to work with. He was sort of looking out to people to say things he could take offense to. Eventually, after many incidents of his anger, we dismissed him. He did not take that well. We had to call police to escort him from the building.”

UPDATE IV: Vicki Gardner, executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber of commerce executive shot during a live news broadcast in Virginia was in stable condition Wednesday after undergoing emergency surgery, officials said.

Vicki Gardner, executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, was shot in the back, said Barb Nocera, the chamber’s special projects manager.

Gardner was recovering at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital in Roanoke, hospital president Steve Arner said. Gardner is also a member of the hospital’s board of directors and is “a close friend” of the institution, he said in a statement.

How Presidential, Anyone Who Disagrees With Barack Obama is Called “Crazies” … Update: White House Walks back Obama’s ‘crazies’ comment

 

AND LIBERALS CALL DONALD TRUMP UN-PRESIDENTIAL … OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT AND REFERS TO HIS ENEMIES AS “CRAZIES” …

The Divider in Chief is at it again calling referring to those who do not agree with his Iran nuclear deal as “crazies”.  How presidential. But what can we expect from the worst president in modern times. So I guess the Democrats like soon to be Senate minority leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) is one of those crazies? How sad that this is what it has come to with this poor excuse for a president. A note to Barack Obama, you know what crazy is … making a deal with a fanatical Islamist regime like that exists in Iran, giving away the kitchen sink in the process and providing no real way to monitor their nuclear capabilities and in some cases making secret provisions for Iran to monitor themselves. What is crazy is to actually trust Iran, a government hellbent on destroying Israel and the United States.

There are the people on his side on the Iran deal, President Barack Obama said Monday evening. Then there are “the crazies.”

Back from a notably uneventful and restful two-week vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Obama was immediately on the road for a short trip here, first to speak at a green energy conference hosted by retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, then to raise money for his preferred successor, former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto.

White House walks back Obama’s ‘crazies’ comment

The White House on Tuesday walked back on President Obama’s comments during a Nevada fundraiser Monday night when he referred to some of his political opponents in Congress as “crazies.”

In his comments at the fundraiser, president acknowledged that he was back from vacation feeling “refreshed, renewed, recharged” and “a little feisty.”

On the feisty score, he didn’t waste time saying he was ready for the fall’s legislative battles, noting that he had ridden to the fundraiser with Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid. The two, he said, did some reminiscing and spent time “figuring out how we are going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems.”

Some reporters and critics immediately interpreted the “crazies” comment as referring to those opposing the Iran nuclear deal. The White House Tuesday denied that it was a reference to Iran deal opponents but admitted the president was “flip” with his language.

42 Year Old Marcy Borders, More Known as 9/11′s Iconic ‘Dust Lady,’ Has Died After Battle with Stomach Cancer

 

42 year old Marcy Borders, probably better known from her iconic picture as the “Dust Lady” following the collapse of the Twin Towers in NYC on September 11, 2001, has died of cancer.  According to The Jersey Journal, Borders was told in August last year that she had stomach cancer and underwent chemotherapy. She had always linked the cancer to 911, when she inhaled and was covered with all types of hazardous debris. One will never know, but sadly after a long, hard and trying struggle following the 911 terror attacks, Marcy Borders has passed.

Our prayers go out to her family and friends. Rest in peace Marcy Borders.

A woman who became known as the “Dust Lady” after being captured on camera in the aftermath of the 9/11 attack on New York City has died after a battle with cancer, her brother confirmed to NBC News.

Marcy Borders, a 42-year-old from Bayonne, New Jersey, was pictured covered in dust after the World Trade Center was hit by two passenger jets. She was inside one of the Twin Towers at the time of the attack but managed to escape the building onto the street below.

She died in the hospital on Monday night at around 11:10 p.m. ET, according to her brother Michael Borders.

9/11 ‘Dust Lady’ Marcy Borders dies after battle with stomach cancer.

The famous photo shows Marcy Borders, a Bank of America employee at the time, distraught and covered in dust in the aftermath of the attacks in Lower Manhattan.

The Bayonne native fell into a decade-long depression that led her to abuse alcohol and drugs after her traumatic experience on 9/11. In 2011, Borders checked into rehab, and has stayed clean since, she told The Jersey Journal last year.

Borders, a mother of two, was just getting back into the working world — helping with a candidate’s local campaign for mayor — when her doctor told her in August 2014 that she had stomach cancer.

Borders, 41 at the time, told The Jersey Journal in November that she had undergone chemotherapy and that she was scheduled to undergo surgery in December and then radiation and chemotherapy afterward.

At the time, she wondered aloud if her cancer was related to 9/11.

Donald Trump Up big in New Hampshire and Socialist Bernie Sanders Leads Hillary Clinton

 

ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS IS DISBELIEF AT TRUMPMENTUM …

In the latest PPP poll in New Hampshire, Donald Trump has pulled away from the GOP field leaving them in his dust. The New Hampshire primary is still a long ways away and not until February 9, 2015, but The Donald is doing his best to crush the competition. Much ti the disbelief and puzzlement of the establishment and GOP machine. It is starting to be become very obvious that that Republicans voters are sick and tired of the lying politicians that have stabbed the electorate one too many times. Look at who is either leading in the polls or surging, its Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson.

Donald Trump thumbs up

The Donald

PPP’s new New Hampshire poll finds Donald Trump in the strongest position of any poll we’ve done anywhere since he entered the race. Trump laps the Republican field with 35% to 11% for John Kasich, 10% for Carly Fiorina, 7% each for Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, 6% for Ben Carson, 4% each for Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio, and 3% for Rand Paul. Candidates falling outside the top ten in the state are Rick Perry at 2%, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Rick Santorum at 1%, and Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, and Bobby Jindal all at less than 1%. Everyone does have at least one supporter on this poll.

To give an idea of how fundamentally the contest has shifted over the last four months none of Trump, Kasich, and Fiorina weren’t even included in the horse race question when we last polled the state in April. The candidate who’s made the most cataclysmic drop is Walker- he’s gone from leading at 24% all the way down to 7% in this newest poll.

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders

As for the DEMOCRATS/SOCIALIST in polling in New Hampshire, socialist Bernie Sanders leads Hillary. What the hell has the Democrat party become? No wonder Democrat political insiders are begging Joe Biden to get in the race to save the embarrassment of actually nominating a self=professed socialist as their parties standard bearer.

There’s been a big shift on the Democratic side since April as well. Bernie Sanders now leads the field in the state with 42% to 35% for Hillary Clinton, 6% for Jim Webb, 4% for Martin O’Malley, 2% for Lincoln Chafee, and 1% for Lawrence Lessig.

The main story in New Hampshire is how universally popular Sanders has become with the Democratic electorate. 78% see him favorably to only 12% with a negative opinion- that makes him easily the most popular candidate on either side with their party’s voters. Meanwhile Hillary Clinton’s favorability numbers have taken a little bit of a hit- she was at 78/10 with Democratic primary voters in April, but now she’s at a 63/25 spread.

The ideological divide is actually not that stark on the Democratic side. Sanders is ahead with ‘somewhat liberal’ voters (45/32), ‘very liberal’ ones (46/37), and moderates (40/36) alike. And although there is certainly a gender gap Sanders is ahead with both men (44/30) and women (41/38). But the real big divide we see is along generational lines- Clinton is ahead 51/34 with seniors, but Sanders has a 45/29 advantage with everyone under the age of 65.

Sigma Nu Fraternity Suspends ODU Chapter after Display of Offensive “Freshman daughter drop off” & “Go ahead and drop off mom too” Banners

 

AND YOU WONDER WHY FRATS HAVE OUTLIVED THEIR ORIGINAL PURPOSE, NO LONGER SERVE ANY PURPOSE AND SHOULD ALL BE PROBABLY ENDED …

The Sigma Nu Fraternity has suspended the Eta Chi Chapter at ODU after a complete lack of judgement and respect for women. It was just what every parent wanted to see as they drop their daughter off at college for the first time on moving day. The  Banners at the Sigma Nu fraternity at Old Dominion University stated the following: “Rowdy and Fun. Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time,” “Freshman daughter drop off” and “Go ahead and drop off mom too.” WOW, really? Had I been dropping my daughter off at college I might just have torn these reprehensible signs down myself and faced the consequences., and confronted these pigs. It would not be the first time that I kicked at frat brothers *ss for inappropriate behavior toward a coed.

What may be more sad than this boorish behavior that has no place in civilized society and especially on a college campus where one is spending too much money for a child’s education, was the reaction and comments of the two female coeds in the video below where they took this as a joke and took no offense. Girls, you are exactly what they prey on. What have we become?

“At ODU, we foster a community of respect and dignity and these messages sickened us,” said ODU spokeswoman Giovanna Genard in a statement provided to NewsChannel 3.

The signs displayed at a home on 43rd street had messages like:

“Rowdy and Fun. Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time.”
“Freshman daughter drop off.”
“Go ahead and drop off mom too.”

Now the Sigma Nu Fraternity has suspended the Eta Chi Chapter at ODU pending an investigation into the banners.

Sigma Nu released a message stating their displeasure with the banners saying they condemn the “derogatory and demeaning language used on the banners.”

UPDATE I: ODU’s administration responded to the signage on August 22, issuing the following statement:

“Messages like the ones displayed yesterday by a few students on the balcony of their private residence are not and will not [be] tolerated. The moment University staff became aware of these banners, they worked to have them removed. At ODU, we foster a community of respect and dignity, and these messages sickened us. They are not representative of our 3,000 faculty and staff, 25,000 students, and 130,000 alumni.

Ours is a community that works actively to promote bystander intervention and takes a stand denouncing violence against women. The ‘It’s on Us’ video is just one example of ODU students’ leadership on this topic.

In addition, the University ensures all students receive education on the prevention of sexual harassment and relationship violence.”
