    DISH FAQS Posted: Dec 19, 2014 1:50 PM CST 1. What is happening? By law, WBOC and FOX21 must negotiate carriage agreements with satellite companies like DISH. Usually, these deals are reached without any disruption to your service. In fact, our company has negotiated dozens of agreements. Unfortunately, so far, DISH has refused to reach a fair, market-based deal to carry WBOC and FOX21. Our existing agreement with DISH expires at midnight on Dec. 31, 2014. If no deal is reached before that date, you will lose live access to the shows, sports and local news on WBOC and FOX21,...

  • Jessica Chambers: Group Anonymous said to be looking for Mississippi teen's killer; mom says quit it

    A group claiming to be the hacktivist organization Anonymous has joined in the hunt for the murderer of a Mississippi teenager, posting information about people they claim have some connection to the crime. Meanwhile, the family of Jessica Chambers, the young woman who was set on fire and left for dead on the side of the road in Panola County, Mississippi, has asked the group to stop tweeting about the case.

I showed them the surveillance video. The next day, they came and asked for the camera, so I gave them the camera system. What else can I do?” he said.

  • Hacktivist Group ‘Anonymous’ Takes On Jessica Chambers Burning Case

    The Hacktivist group known as Anonymous has recently come out in support of the Jessica Chambers murder case. The young girl was found burned alive near her vehicle in rural Mississippi. Anonymous claims that the police were ill-prepared to handle such a high-profile case; therefore, the group decided to take the case into their own hands. After hacking into several social media accounts of local known gang members, the group was able to uncover some startling new evidence. The Anonymous Jessica Chambers campaign is being sourced to Twitter via the user @0Hour1, which is labeled as OperationJessicaC. The first tweet...

He said he knew people would continue to "misrepresent" the positions taken by himself and Obama, but that "legitimate news media" would cover them in a way that's helpful to the administration. In this post, I use the term "legitimate 'news' media" in the same sense that Biden apparently did. I have been reading Sharyl Attkisson's November 2014 book Stonewalled. Its thesis...

I can't tell the people -- I won't tell the people -- that I'm canceling." Like many other small businesses, her bakery Natalie's Cakes and More was vandalized Monday night in the wake of the grand jury decision not to charge Officer Darren Wilson with killing Michael Brown.

    According to experts, the process could be similar to the program "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" (DACA, for its acronym in English) that protects young people from deportation and allows them to obtain a work permit, driver's license and Social Security number. Applicants would have to check the length of residence in the United States. To do this would require a number of documents such as a passport, consular registration, and utility bills. The program would also be expanded DACA under the new plan. From this listing the benefits of this measure include those who were brought into the country...

And if there's news worse than the apparent brutal death of Kassig, it's that we should expect even more vicious videos to come from the group, also known by the acronym ISIL, said Haras Rafiq of the Quiliam Foundation, an anti-extremist think tank. "As we see the U.S. and the coalition making gains against ISIL, we will find that they try and show that they are...
  • Muslim groups seek to co-opt Ferguson protests, says watchdog group

    Muslim groups have stepped up efforts to co-opt protests over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., with a drive to equate the teen’s death to the death of a radical Islamist shot during an FBI raid in 2009, a Washington-based security watchdog group is warning. Using social media, conference calling and traditional outreach methods, leaders of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) are portraying Brown and Detroit mosque leader Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah as African-American victims of police targeting, according to the Washington-based Center for Security Policy (CSP). In a conference call organized by CAIR-linked "Muslims for...

It is his research that convinced the Obama administration that health care reform could not work without requiring everyone to buy insurance. And it is his work that explains why President Obama has so much riding on the three days of United States Supreme Court hearings, which ended Wednesday, about the constitutionality of the mandate. Questioning by the court’s conservative justices has suggested deep skepticism about the mandate, setting...

Fox News Channel averaged 6.6 million watchers in the 10 p.m. hour (ET), when the three broadcast networks turned their attention to the results. CBS placed with 5.4 million viewers, compared with 4.2 million for NBC and 3.1 million for ABC.

    VATICAN CITY – The Vatican's top bioethics official on Tuesday called "reprehensible" the suicide of an American woman suffering terminal brain cancer who stated she wanted to die with dignity. Monsignor Ignacio Carrasco de Paula, the head of the Pontifical Academy for Life, told the ANSA news agency that "dignity is something other than putting an end to one's own life." Brittany Maynard's suicide in Oregon on Saturday, following a public declaration of her motives aimed at sparking political action on the issue, has stirred debate over assisted suicide for the terminally ill. Carrasco de Paula said "Brittany Maynard's act...

    Most people would likely avert their eyes when passing by a man with a mouth full of writhing worms, or, say, the sight of a pile of excrement. But some are more disgusted than others, and new research suggests those individuals who respond with a more intense "yuck" are more likely to hold conservative political views and specifically are more likely to oppose same-sex marriage. "This is one more piece of evidence that we, quite literally, have gut feelings about politics," said study researcher Kevin Smith, a political science professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

    On an August day in New York City, Shoshana B. Roberts was harassed 108 times — by her definition. The whole thing was caught on video by Hollaback, an anti-street harassment advocacy group, and edited into a two-minute public service announcement. Clad in jeans and a black T-shirt, Roberts walked around New York for 10 hours following filmmaker Rob Bliss, who had a camera hidden in his backpack. One man says “Hello, good morning,” then follows Roberts for five minutes. Another says, “What’s up girl? How you doin?” When she doesn’t respond he reprimands her: “Somebody’s acknowledging you for being...

    White House journalists are creating an alternative system for distributing their media “pool” reports in response to the Obama administration’s involvement in approving and disapproving certain content in official reports. A small group of reporters initiated an online forum this month in which they shared “pool” information among themselves, without White House involvement. The forum was set up by the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA), which negotiates with the White House’s press staff over access for journalists. Pool reports — those summaries of the president’s public appearances that go to the news media at large and are used in countless...

    LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) — Is the U.S. Ebola screening effort really just a public-relations ploy? Health officials say beefed-up defenses in five U.S. airports mean they will screen 94% of passengers flying in from Ebola-hit countries. But a check of airlines schedules shows that even if that figure is correct, a significant number of flights will bypass that extra security. Dr. Joseph McCormick, professor at the University of Texas School of Public Health and former CDC official specializing in viral diseases, says the efforts seem to be the result of public pressure. “I think that the screening program is, to...

Several children who received the packets Monday morning went to the hospital as a precaution, police said. But no packets were opened, and all of the kids were released after being examined. Police say the child unknowingly brought the heroin to the center when her mother gave her a different backpack because the girl's regular backpack had been ruined by the family pet. Police say...
