    Dr. Sproul is not improving as we had hoped and so these next few days are critical. He has a fever today due to the infection he has been fighting. Moreover, he is not decreasing in his reliance on the ventilator to support his breathing. Your prayers in behalf of Dr. Sproul are deeply appreciated. They mean so much to the family and all who love R.C. We will keep you informed here on the blog and on Facebook and Twitter if his condition changes.

    The Washington Post ^ | 9 December 2017 | Emily Yahr
    President Trump on Saturday evening issued a call for a reporter with The Washington Post to be fired because of a quickly deleted tweet that presented a misleading impression of Trump’s rally crowd in Florida. The Post reporter, David Weigel, had earlier tweeted a photo of the crowd gathered at Pensacola Bay Center for Trump’s speech there Friday evening, showing numerous empty seats. He removed the tweet after being told by others that the photo was taken before the venue filled up and apologized in a later Twitter exchange with the president. Trump’s public response: “.@daveweigel of the Washington Post...

    Journalists were rattled on Saturday after President Donald Trump called out a Washington Post reporter for tweeting a misleading picture of Trump’s rally in Pensacola, Florida, on Friday night. Weigel had tweeted a picture of Trump’s rally that appeared to show an empty arena, but it was taken well before the rally got underway in front of a packed venue. Weigel apologized in response to Trump’s tweet, at which point the president declared victory and called on Weigel to be fired. Weigel, Trump tweeted, “just admitted that his picture was a FAKE (fraud?) showing an almost empty arena last night...

    President Donald Trump slammed Washington Post politics reporter (and former Journolist) Dave Weigel for posting a photo mocking Trump for the size of the crowd at his rally Friday night in Pensacola, Florida that was actually taken well before Trump entered the venue. Weigel mockingly quoting Trump’s tweet about the rally, “Packed to the rafters”. As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier Saturday, liberals online, including the site Raw Story, were spreading a photo of the rally taken well before Trump took the stage at the Pensacola Bay Center that showed many empty sections of seats. It was falsely claimed that...
