    The mother of a US soldier who was killed in action has backed a congresswoman's claim that President Donald Trump showed insensitivity during a phone call to her son's widow. Representative Frederica Wilson said he had told Myeshia Johnson: "He knew what he was signing up for, but I guess it hurts anyway." Mr Trump said Ms Wilson's account was "totally fabricated". Sgt La David Johnson was killed in Niger by Islamist militants this month. He was one four US special service soldiers who died in an ambush. Mr Trump had already been criticised for not contacting the families of...
  • Jane Fonda: 'I Don’t Regret Going to Vietnam' - 'I'm Proud That I Went'

    Last week on BBC's "Hardtalk," actress Jane Fonda was asked by show host Stephen Sackur if inside her she had a "sense of regret" for her 1972 visit to North Vietnam at the height of the Vietnam War. Fonda denied having any regret about the visit itself and argued she had justifications for the trip. [Snip] The [only] part she said she had regretted was appearing with the anti-aircraft and looking that she was against American soldiers and "siding with the enemy," which she said wasn't the case.

    No. This not a joke. It's real. The BBC has apparently decided Africans are simply too stupid to be expected to learn normal English. So, the news will now be delivered to them in Pidgin as if it is a real language. Would they ever deliver the news in Cockney? How about Leprechaun? Or maybe a heavy redneck Southern drawl?

  • Watch: Former BBC chairman blasts media bias against Israel

    A member of the House of Lords and former chairman of the British Broadcasting Corporation addressed the problem of media bias against Israel during a speech in Parliament on Wednesday, lambasting the BBC for its coverage of recent terror attacks against Jews in Israel. Lord Michael Grade, who was chairman of the BBC from 2004 to 2006, praised his country’s backing for a Jewish national home in the 1917 Balfour Declaration, but lamented that much of the media today feeds false narratives about the Jewish state, while anti-Semites use Zionism and Zionists as a proxy for attacking Judaism and Jews....

Some pointed out a wire dangling from Trump's ear, and the White House press secretary said the president was simply wearing an earbud. ...Frank Luntz: Tweet saying @POTUS ignored Italian translation headphones:...

    Ballistic rockets were on display at Saturday's military parade at Pyongyang to mark the 105th birthday of the state's late founder Kim Il Sung. Almost 60 long-range and submarine-based missiles were on show as tensions mounted overJong-un's nuclear ambitions. The display initially caused international fears North Korea's nuke program was more advanced than previously thought. A senior analyst at the Korea Defence Network told AFP: “I suspect they all might be mock-ups aimed to impress the outside world.” The nose cone of one of the devastating rockets “wobbled quite noticeably” according to Chad O’Carroll, managing director of specialist service NK...

    The new series of Doctor Who will see the Time Lord joined by his first openly gay companion. Bill Potts's sexuality will be revealed pretty much straightaway in her second line of dialogue when the show returns to BBC One on 15 April. "It shouldn't be a big deal in the 21st Century. It's about time isn't it?" Pearl Mackie, who plays Bill, told the BBC. "That representation is important, especially on a mainstream show." She added: "It's important to say people are gay, people are black - there are also aliens in the world as well so watch out...

    Worship and Service of Creation It is easy to read what Paul says in Romans 1:25—“they exchanged the truth about God for the lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen,” in a purely negative light as describing the very basis of paganism and the worst form of idolatrous narcissism. However, we cannot deny the seductive beauty and power of such a creation. A new study has found that merely watching nature documentaries boosts people’s emotions of awe, contentedness, joy and amusement. By the same token, such activity reduces “feelings of nervousness,...

    In the atmosphere, the seas and around the poles, climate change is reaching disturbing new levels across the Earth. That's according to a detailed global analysis from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). It says that 2016 was not only the warmest year on record, but it saw atmospheric CO2 rise to a new high, while Arctic sea ice recorded a new winter low. "This increase in global temperature is consistent with other changes occurring in the climate system," said WMO Secretary-General, Petteri Taalas. "Globally averaged sea-surface temperatures were also the warmest on record, global sea-levels continued to rise, and Arctic...

    The BBC is failing in its duty to be impartial over Brexit, a group of parliamentarians has claimed. In a letter to senior BBC figures, they said the broadcaster had characterised Britain as xenophobic and focused too much on regretful leave voters. The 76-strong group, made up mainly of Conservative MPs and including former cabinet ministers, warned the BBC’s director general, Tony Hall, and the incoming chair of its new governing body, David Clementi, that the broadcaster’s future might be in jeopardy if it was not seen as neutral.

    Google and Facebook will be working with the mainstream media to tell voters “what and who to trust”, including “memes, comment threads and news sites”, in the lead up to the French elections. The two Tech giants, who have been accused of a “liberal bias”, will set up the “coalition news verification project” with 37 French and international media outlets including the BBC, AFP (Agence France-Presse), and BuzzFeed News. On an official blog post, Google claimed “CrowdTangle” had been set up “with a goal of helping the French electorate make sense of what and who to trust in their social...
