But at least Augusta National now has two female members. And, as with the catch-all “the Secretary shall decide” if Obamcare is otherwise inconvenient to Big Government regulators, CBS can always cite the calling in of a fan to allege rule violations to justify not disqualifying ratings-driver Tiger Woods for rules violations that otherwise require disqualification:
The Masters rules committee cited a relatively new rule (brought in to deal with cases where viewers call in after the fact to report violations seen on TV) that allows the tournament to waive a penalty of disqualification in exceptional circumstances. They then released a statement that in essence placed the onus on the rules committee for not alerting Woods of his violation before he signed his scorecard.
The statement says: “After meeting with the player, it was determined that he had violated Rules 26, and he was assessed a two stroke penalty. The penalty of disqualification was waived by the Committee under Rule 33 as the Committee had previously reviewed the information and made its initial determination prior to the finish of the player’s round.
Nick Faldo, a three time Masters champion and the lead analyst on CBS coverage of the event, said that Woods ought to consider withdrawing from the event…
After all March Madness is over and CBS has to make up for profits they and all the other networks, save for Fox News Channel, gave up long ago due to their religious devotion to trashing America’s history, culture and values. Never thought we would see the day that broadcast network pressure would so taint the memory of Atlanta’s Bobby Jones and Augusta, Georgia’s Masters tournament, but we digress.
And speaking of “mainstream” media trashing of our culture and values, whatever happened to the bugging of the Watergate Hotel and Woodward & Bernstein’s investigative journalism that brought down a president as the example to which all journalists aspire? It appears that environmental liberal Democrat wacko magazine Mother Jones or some liberal Democrat mother (or the sons and daughters of such liberal Democrat mothers) may have illegally taped the Senate Minority Leader discussing research into liberal Democrat actress Ashley Judd.
But instead of the “story” being the possible emergence of a 21st Century Gordon Liddy, the news is supposedly how venal is opposition research when it is not directed at Romneys and Bain Capital. i.e. Republicans.
Outside the beltway, crickets fill the void of the First Amendment-empowered Fourth Estate when it comes to trials of the pro-choice murder of babies not yet taken home from Democrats’ favorite hospitals, aka abortion mills, in the City of Brotherly Love:
Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven’t heard about these sickening accusations?
It’s not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell’s former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.
NBC-10 Philadelphia reported that, Stephen Massof, a former Gosnell worker, “described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, ‘literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.” One former worker, Adrienne Moton, testified that Gosnell taught her his “snipping” technique to use on infants born alive.
The evangelicals in my twitter and Facebook feed are asking, justifiably, why these crimes seem to be nowhere in the media. You’d think that a lurid crime touching an issue of major national importance would be covered everywhere. And yet, there’s been very little.
Who knew that 50 years after Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique and The Pill gave women another “choice”, that “The Choice” so many women would make would be the Pandora’s Box of abortion on demand opened up by seven male lawyers in black robes on the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973’s Roe v. Wade. Infants may be safest in their mother’s arms, defended by their Second Amendment-armed natural father in marital bliss; but before that safety is achieved the child must first escape the womb, no matter the effect of their escape on their mom’s ability to make the BMW payments. And even then, MSNBC may air liberal Democrats claiming it best that Uncle Sam be the baby daddy so Americans will beg to be taxed more to pay union wages to three government school “administrators” for every tenured “teacher” of all things wonderful about Big Government.
One would think that such a liberal Democrat academia and press would want the government’s youth to visit the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Big Government pinnacle where Baby Daddy Barack resides, but nary a discouraging word is heard from CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN when “sequester” blacks out the White House tour market in favor of Hip Hop celebrity tours of the Executive Mansion.
Think the culture is bad now? It is, and can it ever get anything but worse when the Associated Press becomes George Orwell’s “1984” 29 years later by refusing to refer to immigrants that illegally cross American borders as illegal immigrants and it takes Jay Leno to point them out as the undocumented (future voting liberal) Democrats that they are.
But no worries, Tiger is still on the prowl on Sunday at Augusta as Condi Rice looks on…
