    The prime minister of India today unveiled the world’s largest statue, dedicated to Sardar Patel, a nationalist who helped unite modern India after its independence from Britain. "We are doing everything possible to turn Sardar Patel's vision into a reality and ensure a good-quality life for our fellow Indians," Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted. The monument, called the Statue of Unity, stands at nearly 600 feet and cost a staggering $460 million to build. That makes the mega statue almost 200 feet higher than the world’s next largest, the Spring Temple Buddha in China, which stands at about 420...
  • ABC News reeling after anti-Trump 'practice' headline; was hostile staffer to blame?

    Beleaguered ABC News was reeling Thursday morning after having to correct its latest anti-Trump error -- an on-screen caption Wednesday afternoon that falsely stated that Paul Manafort, Donald Trump's ex-campaign chief, pleaded guilty to five charges of manslaughter. ABC quickly apologized for the error – saying there “is no excuse” -- and an ABC spokesperson said the network is still “investigating” what went wrong. But ABC News sources tell Fox News that the false report was a “practice chyron” that had likely been maliciously written by a hostile ABC News employee (a chyron is a TV news term for words...

    You might remember ABC’s Brian Ross for previously making the absurd on-air claim that Colorado mass shooter James Holmes was a Tea Party member. He completely made up the story, and later apologized. Well, today ABC News Brian Ross again appeared directly on ABC World News to break a story claiming that candidate Donald Trump told campaign adviser Michael Flynn to make contact with Russians. Watch, and note specifically what Brian Ross reports: …”as a candidate, Donald Trump ordered him, directed him, to contact the the Russians.” Oliver Darcy‏ ABC News spokesperson tells me that “World News” will clarify that...

    Friday on The View, hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar revealed they were still in denial over the 2016 election results. Discussing the leaked excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir, the two die-hard liberals at the table clashed with moderate hosts Paula Faris and Jedediah Bila, over the reasons why Clinton lost the election. Joy Behar even went so far as to claim that Clinton really did “win” the election, while Whoopi went into conspiracy theory land, saying we would “never know” why Clinton really lost. The conversation started by discussing Bernie Sanders recent television appearance, where he told Clinton...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said that Democrats should try to impeach Vice President Mike Pence after they impeach President Trump on “The View” on Friday. “Do you think Pence will be better than Trump?” host Joy Behar asked Waters. “No, and when we finish with Trump, we have to go and get Putin. He’s next,” Waters said. “Putin or Pence?” Behar asked, confused. “Pence,” Waters said, correcting herself. Waters has been calling for Trump’s impeachment since February.

    Just tuned in to ABC This Morning. Basically it repeats as a lead story the Washington comPost garbage. Very very little balance. For instance, while stating the DOJ says Comey did NOT ask for additional money for Russia investigation, a giant graphic on the screen says COMEY ASKED FOR ADDITIONAL MONEY. And they EXCITEDLY reported the boos rained upon Betsy DeVos by some bigots at a university in Florida AND how a New Jersey Republican was screamed at by a snowflake at a town hall. By the way, diversity at ABC This Morning has yet to include a white male....

    ABC Digital has issued an apology for mistakenly listing Amy Adams, Annette Bening and Tom Hanks briefly on the Oscar.com site as Oscar nominees following Tuesday morning’s Academy Awards announcement. “This morning, in an attempt to release breaking news as announced, ABC Digital briefly posted inaccurate nomination information on the Oscar.com website,” ABC said in a statement. “The nominees announced by the Academy on Twitter were accurate. ABC quickly identified and corrected the errors. We apologize to the Academy, press, and fans for any confusion.” Adams was inadvertently named one of the nominees for best actress for her work as...

    Frustrated after seeing another candidate secure the presidency without winning the national popular vote, mostly Democratic lawmakers in several capitols want their states to join a 10-year-old movement to work around the Electoral College. In states including Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Mexico, legislators have said they plan to introduce legislation that would require their state's Electoral College voters cast ballots for the presidential candidate who earns the most votes nationwide, regardless of the statewide results. "Every vote in this country should have equal weight. The Electoral College is a relic of a bygone era, and we need to change...
  • Actress Ali Wentworth: When Trump Won My 14-Year-Old Daughter Complained There’d be “No Abortions!”

    Nothing could make a liberal power couple’s hearts swell up with pride more than the sweet sounds of their young daughter throwing a pro-abortion hissy fit. That’s exactly what happened Tuesday on The View, when actress/comedian Ali Wentworth, married to ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos, boasted about how “upset” her young daughter was with Trump’s win. Wentworth bragged that the 14-year-old ranted and raved around their home afterwards, sulking about abortion and “women’s rights.” You know, the typical story told around the watercooler except on national television. As The View hosts tried to shift the conversation to Wentworth’s new TV show,...

    On The View today, Joy Behar expressed her frustration with Democrats for “rolling over” when they still have a way to stop Donald Trump. She said that “the Democrats are not going to do what they have to to stop him,” citing the electoral college’s vote next week. Behar argued that the qualifying factors by which electors can reject Trump more than qualify here. Jedediah Bila immediately pushed back, with Haines saying the people spoke and Bila saying you can’t just overturn the will of the people, especially when there is nothing definitive settled yet about the success of Russia’s...

    It's critical to start by separating foolish and even potentially shady behavior from criminal. It should be clear to any objective observer that it was an enormous error for Clinton to use a homemade server for all of her emails while she was in a position that regularly handles and assesses the most sensitive of government secrets. She had admitted as much (although now she appears to be backtracking from that initial mea culpa). It is also indisputable that it was neither a crime nor even a violation of State Department procedure for Clinton to have used personal email for...

    Barbara Walters is certainly not immune to Bradley Cooper's charm. While interviewing Cooper for her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2015" special, the 86-year-old Walters reveals that she, like many, has a bit of a crush on the Oscar-nominated star. "I could just sit and stare at you but that would take too much time," she tells Cooper in the interview. "But I, I find you very screwable." Later in the interview, a flirtatious Walters asks if the Joy star, 40, knows he's handsome, adding, "I think you're handsome, I think you're sexy."

    It looks like those elitist harridans on ABC's "The View" learned nothing from the national backlash over their mockery of nurse Kelley Johnson less than eight weeks ago. Guess they've already forgotten how major advertisers Johnson & Johnson, Party City, McCormick spices, Snuggle, and Eggland's Best all pulled spots from the show after co-host and lead Mean Girl Michelle Collins led a cacklefest ridiculing Johnson, Miss Colorado 2015, for a heartfelt monologue about her work during the Miss America pageant. In a craven attempt at damage control, the daytime divas inflicted yet more damage by blaming nurses and their supporters...

    HOUSTON (KTRK) -- On the first day of early voting, two new ads were released to abc13. Both of them are available here, but we are told will start airing on broadcast and cable television Tuesday. Lt. Governor Dan Patrick held a news conference Monday to unveil his offering. In the 30-second spot paid for by Patrick's campaign, the Lt. Governor stands against a flag draped background and tells viewers, "City of Houston Prop One is not about equality. That is already the law of the land. It's about allowing men in women's locker rooms and bathrooms."

"Will you still love me for the rest of my life?" the band Chicago sang. "I can't go on if I'm on my own." Miller pulled over. And for the first time since she and her partner stepped into the vortex of history, she wept. [Snip] The couple has lived quietly together for years, never intending to lead a battle that has consumed their town of Morehead, where Miller is a tenured university...

    When it comes to engaging people on Facebook, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has some work to do. About 865,000 different people commented on, shared a note or otherwise engaged with the Kentucky lawmaker when he announced his campaign for the White House on Tuesday, according to Facebook. In all, Paul’s announcement generated a total of 1.9 million interactions — both positive and negative — during the day. By comparison, 2.2 million Facebook users talked about Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) when he announced his campaign last month, generating a total of 5.7 million interactions. The metrics are just one sign of...

    WALKERTON, Ind. - A small-town pizza shop is saying they agree with Governor Pence and the signing of the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The O'Connor family, who owns Memories Pizza, says they have a right to believe in their religion and protect those ideals. “If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” says Crystal O'Connor of Memories Pizza. She and her family are standing firm in their beliefs. The O'Connor's have owned Memories Pizza in Walkerton for 9 years. It's a small-town business, with small-town ideals....

    Zaneta Rago, the Director of Rutgers’ Social Justice Center, said that she was surprised there were not more millennials who believed that gender exists on a spectrum. “It's wonderful that approximately half of the respondents understood gender as a spectrum, but that means we're only half way there," she said. Daniella Anconetami, a School of Arts and Sciences first-year student, said that she believes in the gender spectrum. She said that she discovered that gender “wasn’t black and white” in high school, and said that her opinions about gender identity changed after meeting someone who was transgender in high school....

    Alabama's Stand Against Gay Marriage Crumbles MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Feb 13, 2015 By KIM CHANDLER Alabama's stand against gay marriage crumbled Friday as judges in most counties sided with federal courts rather than their own chief justice, a Republican who once called homosexuality an inherent evil. Many counties in the Bible Belt state began issuing the licenses to same-sex couples after the latest strongly worded order from U.S. District Judge Callie Granade. She said Thursday that a judge could no longer deny marriage licenses to gays and lesbians, reiterating her ruling striking down the state's ban on same-sex marriage.
