  • The incredible shrinking Sharpton: How Rev. Al lost 175 pounds (2014)

    08/10/2015 9:25:48 AM PDT · by dennisw · 40 replies
    At age 60 and weighing 130, the once-rotund Sharpton is almost underweight, and he says he's never hungry. His 'secret': Less food, more exercise. He hasn’t had any sweets in years. He hasn’t had dinner in years, either. Call it “the Al Sharpton Diet,” but this once-rotund reverend has dropped from 305 pounds to exactly 129.6 pounds. The precise weight was recorded this week on Sharpton’s bedroom scale at 5 a.m., when the man of the (much less) cloth begins his day. Sharpton has shed 60% of his much-mocked weight — and he did it without surgery, diet pills or...
  • Trump’s teachable moment: Ralph Nader on what we should make of the billionaire's longshot candidacy

    The New York Daily News ^ | July 27, 2015 | Ralph Nader
    The brouhahas over billionaire Donald Trump show how broadcasters favor easy, juicy stories about powerful people’s bad words over harder, less sexy ones about their bad deeds. This is a teachable moment for the mass media. Failing to take Trump seriously could set a dangerous precedent for future candidates with fresh ideas, looking to shake up the controlling status quo. The Huffington Post, which carries my column, announced that it is excluding Trump from its political coverage and instead filing all stories about the man leading the Republican field, according to the most recent polls, under entertainment. If they existed...

    NEW YORK (AP) — NBC News has assigned the head of its own investigative unit to look into statements that anchor Brian Williams made about his reporting in Iraq a dozen years ago, an episode that's ballooned into a full-blown credibility crisis for the network. NBC News President Deborah Turness announced the probe in an internal memo on Friday. Williams has apologized for falsely saying on the air that he was in a helicopter hit by a rocket-propelled grenade while in Iraq in 2003, and Turness said Friday the anchor expressed his regrets to his colleagues for the impact the...

    The leftwing New York Daily News blasted President Obama on its cover Thursday morning. Referring to the federal government's appallingly incompetent response to the American Ebola outbreak, the front page headline next to the president's photo read, "For God's Sake, Get a Grip." After three weeks of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) happy talking its Ebola preparedness and wrist-flicking the potential threat, 3 people in America have been infected with Ebola, two nurses and the man they cared for -- who died last week.
  • Howard Stern called an 'idiot' after comparing Sony hacking to 9/11 terror attack

    The New York Daily News blasted Howard Stern and called him an “idiot” Tuesday after the radio host compared the Sony hacking assault, in which embarrassing emails and other papers were released, to the terrorist attack on 9/11 that left almost 3,000 people dead. The front page newspaper headline declared the self-described “King of all Media” as the “Cringe of all Media” and on the inside pages it published a photo of Stern next to a picture of the World Trade Center towers on fire. “Hey Howard… this is 9/11, idiot,” the copy blared.

    On May 26 the New York Daily News launched a series about the Santa Barbara tragedy titled "America in Denial." It is a perfect demonstration of how the left plans to deny or downplay many facts in the horrid Santa Barbara attacks while perverting others so they can push gun control.

    Police in New York City are trying to find a black man wearing a hoodie who is responsible for a horrific attack on a teenage white girl who was stabbed 11 times just steps from her front door. The knife-wielding maniac ambushed Natasha Martinez, 17, as she returned home from working her shift at a local McDonald’s restaurant. Hearing her daughter’s screams, Natasha’s mother, Wendy Martinez, came running outside — and the bloodthirsty attacker fled. “She came home from work, and her body was full of holes,” Wendy Martinez told the New York Daily News. “I was holding her because...

    Gov. Cuomo says it would be shameful if Anthony Weiner is elected mayor. Cuomo, during an appearance before the Syracuse Post-Standard's editoral board Wednesday, stayed neutral when asked his thoughts on Weiner entering the race. "He runs? He runs," the paper quotes him as saying in a transcript But asked how he would feel if Weiner (self-pictured at right) were to be elected, Cuomo was blunt. "Shame on us," he replied. Cuomo, a Democrat, has said he has no plans to get involved in the mayor's race. He gave a less definitive answer hours before he spoke to the Syracuse...

Labor Unions: A History of Murder and Sabotage The New American 28 February 2011 The raging union-led protests in Wisconsin have resulted in many Americans taking a closer, more critical look at labor unions and their political clout and influence in shaping policy. With the ubiquitous announcement from AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka that he is granted an audience at the White House “nearly every day,” the American people have become more skeptical of unions and the role...

    One day after Mort Zuckerman shook up his Daily News by cutting loose the paper’s editor, the deposed leader gave a farewell address to the troops. Kevin Convey, the longtime Boston Herald editor who lasted only 18 months at the ailing News, gave a “short and sweet” farewell address, according to one insider. “It was a weird ending to a weird tenure,” said the insider. At about the same time, the incoming editor, Colin Myler, was boarding a plane in London, according to one report, to jet to his new assignment, which starts Jan. 10. “To the degree we’ve had...

    Oral sex could be hazardous to your health. So say researchers who note that oral cancer stemming from the human papilloma virus is more common in the U.S. than oral cancer caused by abusing tobacco. Researchers found a 225% increase in oral cancer cases in the U.S. from 1974 to 2007, mainly among white men, said Maura Gillison, a cancer researcher at Ohio State University. The more oral-sex partners a man had, the greater his cancer risk, Gillison told a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Tobacco use remains the leading cause of oral cancer in...

"The goal is to take care of working class people, not to attack the President." (snip) "There will be pushback," Sharpton vowed, likening the attacks to "blaming the ransom" and "not the kidnapper." ...

    First Patrick Caprice, then Christopher Wiesneski, then Patrick O'Boyle and Erik Hansen, then Dominick Romano and David Harris, then Wiener Philippe, then Dillon Stewart, then Mark Ennis and Peter Verdesi, and now Daniel Enchautegui. The blood of police officers is running ever faster on New York City's streets. Since June, two cops have been shot and killed and nine cops have been shot and wounded in the line of duty. We have paid tribute. We have mourned. And, to our shame, we have moved on. But not this time. This time there's no moving on without tough action. Too many...

There's something about a mindset that can really believe, despite any experience hosting talk shows, they can do what all the other liberals couldn't. Reverend Al Sharpton's the latest to take the plunge, with immediate questions about his viability, or real future prospects

    The release of the six-month circulation figures for U.S. daily newspapers showed big declines at Tribune Co.'s Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune. The newspaper industry's twice-yearly circulation report showed modest circulation declines at many dailies, continuing a two-decade-long trend. The latest report, released by the Audit Bureau of Circulations, is being studied especially closely by advertisers and Wall Street. It marks the first industry circulation data since several major newspapers reported overstatements this year, beginning with scandals in June at Tribune's Newsday and Spanish-language Hoy. Subsequently, Hollinger International Inc.'s Chicago Sun-Times and Belo Corp.'s Dallas Morning News also admitted...

    In my previous column on pro-Al Qaeda rapper KRS-One (Kris Parker; hereafter, “KOP”), I cited the Daily News story from “Rush & Molloy’s” gossip column (the husband-and-wife team of George Rush and Joanna Molloy) that quoted him as having “cheered” when Al Qaeda attacked America and murdered 3,000 people on 911, liberally quoted from KOP’s rap/Hip-Hop (r/h) “songs,” and discussed r/h’s ties to black supremacist movements such as the Nation of Islam, the Five Percenters, and the New Black Panther party.

    “The news for New York City is spectacular," New York’s Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg told a City Hall press conference on May 24. He and New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly [Email him] were claiming credit for new FBI crime stats showing major crimes—murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, car theft, larceny and arson—dropping 5.8% in the city in 2003. New York’s crime rate now ranks it 211th of the 230 U.S. cities with 100,000-plus population—behind Omaha, Nebraska and Wichita, Kansas. Unfortunately, there must have been at least one skeptic at the press conference. Hizzoner reportedly “bristled” at suggestions that...

    The New York Times is not pleased with New York City Mayor Michael ("Mayor Mike") Bloomberg. In a March 11 house editorial, "Mayor Bloomberg's Commitment Issue," the newspaper in so many words demanded that Bloomberg embrace same-sex marriage, and begin personally officiating at same-sex weddings in the mayoral residence of Grace Mansion, forthwith. Or else. "He doesn't officiate at weddings at Gracie Mansion, a previously time-honored tradition for mayors of New York. And it seems that he has a problem committing on the issue of gay marriage. "In the month or so since performing same-sex marriages became a point of...
