Watch Miley twerk, twitch and protrude her tongue at weird angles.
Examine her public display of compulsive sexual fantasy. We have a
diagnosis. Axis II: Exhibitionism with a touch of Frotteurism
are a celebrity attending the MTV Video Music Awards. What a great
night for media exposure and self-adulatory prancing. It is time to fawn
for the photojournalists and display the latest Haute couture. So let
there be music and let there be dance! Let there be crude obscenity and
slutty behaviour! It is a time to applaud for your co-religionists;
please applaud vigorously until the palms of your hands tingle with
excitement. And then onward to the party circuit to thrust out the chest
one more time with carefully positioned feet for this latest Cinderella
moment. For there is nothing more invigorating than receiving an award
from an event specifically tailored to, well, give out awards.

DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) and figure
out what the heck is happening on the stage. I believe a look at Axis II
disorders will be a good place to start. To inspire a love for
medicine, we will take a look at one performer who has created quite a
stir. Naturally, the gaze is cast toward the performance of a young lady

Shelly is the wife of David Miscavige, Tom Cruise’s “best friend” and
best man in his wedding to Katie Holmes. After going missing in late
2005, early 2006, she was seen briefly in 2007 at a funeral with
“minders” who did not allow her to talk to anyone else. When Remini
asked about her, Remini was subjected to five years of interrogations
and behavior modifications by Scientology, before she finally left them
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed only that an investigation regarding Shelly (Michelle) Miscavige is ongoing, but a source close to TheKing of Queens actress confirms that Remini filed the report herself.
According to writer Tony Ortega‘s website, The Underground Bunker,
which focuses on the inner workings of the secretive organization,
Shelly Miscavige has not been publicly sighted in six years.
According to Ortega, Shelly Miscavige allegedly was transferred from
Scientology’s headquarters near Hemet, Calif., to a secret compound near
Lake Arrowhead in late 2005 or early 2006. The compound, known as the
Church of Spiritual Technology, reportedly houses about a dozen
Scientologists who are said to be completely cut off from the outside
world. Miscavige and his attorneys have not publicly confirmed Shelly’s
whereabouts. According to Ortega’s report, Remini questions whether
Shelly has freedom of movement or is being “punished for her own
Shockingly, Shaun Casey was also a religion advisor to the Obama campaign in 2008.
– Secretary of State John Kerry announced Wednesday the formation of
the Office of Faith-Based Community Initiatives, which will be headed by
Shaun Casey, a former religion advisor to President Barack Obama’s 2008
campaign and a liberal professor who last year touted the end of ‘civil
religion’ in the United States.
“I, frankly, am glad American civil religion is dying,” Casey said at
a discussion last year at the Center for American Progress focused on
“God and Politics” in the last presidential election.
Kerry introduced Casey as a person who cares about faith in American society.
“Over the years, I’ve come to appreciate Shaun as a deeply thoughtful
person who cares about the place of faith in our public life,” Kerry
Fox executives said Monday that its drama "24" is returning next May
for a limited run that will stretch into the summer. The adventure
series with Kiefer Sutherland starring as Jack Bauer ended its original
run in 2010.
Fox programming chief Kevin Reilly said creators had been thinking
about doing a movie with the original cast. But when Fox announced it
was interested in doing a big event miniseries, they realized it was the
Funicello, who was 70,
"died peacefully from complications due to multiple sclerosis, a disease
she battled for over 25 years," the Disney statement said.
"We are so sorry to lose
Mother," her three children said in a statement. "She is no longer
suffering anymore and is now dancing in heaven. We love and will miss
her terribly." (much more at CNN, hat tip Dan Reihl)
Not an April Fool's Day joke, but a terrible idea:
Real smell-o-vision TV unveiled by Japanese team
Smell-o-vision has been a staple of
bad sci-fi for decades, but could finally be edging closer to the
average living room thanks to a super-accurate Japanese system.
A team from Tokyo
University of Agriculture and Technology in Japan have invented a
'smelling screen' that makes smells waft from the spot on a display that
their corresponding objects appear. (image via PC Authority)
development promises to make adverts for fried chicken or fresh coffee
even more appealing - or alternatively add an as yet undreamed of
realism to documentary programmes like Life of Grime
Smell-o-vision is nothing new, having been on the entertainment technology radar for over five decades. [snip]
The invention is 'a new olfactory
display that can generate a localised odour distribution on a
two-dimensional display screen,' the researchers say.
generated odour distribution is as if an odour source had been placed
on the screen, and leads the user to perceive the odour as emanating
from a specific region of the screen.' (continue at the Daily Mail UK)
If NBC doesn’t want Jay Leno, Fox wants to give him a new home.
head of Fox’s powerful affiliate board — who represents the majority of
the 206 Fox stations around the country, said yesterday he favors
building a new late-night show — starting at 11 o’clock — around the
departing “Tonight Show” host.
“If Fox were to
present the right business plan, the affiliate board would be
interested,” Steve Pruett, the board chairman, told The Post.
prospect of Leno jumping networks — and gaining a half-hour jump on
David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon, who has reportedly been told he is
getting Leno’s job — would be a major blow to NBC’s plan for a smooth
transition to a younger, hipper “Tonight” show host. (continue at New York Post)
It would serve NBC right if Fox grabbed Leno. Hope it happens.
while 'somewhat' moderate Fox News provides welcome deviation from the
otherwise homogeneously leftist dribble of television propaganda, it
hardly satiates the demand in the market for news and opinion that
hasn't been predigested for consumption by glassy-eyed liberal fools.
Fortunately another option is coming soon:
Herring Broadcasting Company, Inc, (HBC) announced [Thursday] it is
preparing for the launch of a new 24/7 high-definition news channel
called One America News Network. Scheduled to launch on July 4th, 2013,
the new network will fill a void by providing a credible source of
national and international news around the clock along with a number of
signature political talk shows.
According to Robert Herring, CEO of HBC, "Americans are starved
for a credible source of news delivering substance based on facts. One
America News Network will prove to be a trustworthy destination for
national and international news. In addition, the network's political
talk shows will tackle a number of subjects that are being ignored by
One America News Network will also air political talk shows that
offer substantive contrarian viewpoints to a plethora of left-leaning
shouting-style political news programs. The network's studio talk
programs will debate the role of government, protection of civil
liberties, fiscal responsibility, along with highlighting political
corruption and government waste.
points out, a relationship with the conservative Washington Times will
provide HBC with access to staff and content. Hopefully One America will
avoid burdening itself with the likes of leftist stooges like Fox's
Shep Smith and Geraldo Rivera.
Can't come soon enough!

Imagine that! TV viewers like watching a presentation about The Bible. Wonders never cease!
According to the latest Nielsens, released Tuesday, Sunday night’s telecast of “The Bible,” produced by husband-and-wife team Mark Burnett and Roma Downey for basic cable’s History channel, managed to attract more viewers than anything on broadcast network NBC … during the entire week.
The second installment of this five-part mini-series airing at 8-10 p.m. Sundays through Easter — the first foray into scripted drama for “Survivor” creator Burnett — drew 10.8 million viewers, good for number one in its timeslot and number 11 overall for the week.
bigger was part one the week before, which amassed an audience of 13.1
million viewers, cable’s largest of the year. That series premiere
topped the ratings for both of the week’s episodes of “American Idol.”
(Not the first time the Almighty has bested idols in head-to-head
competition in this ancient rivalry — but, still, an impressive feat,
even if Fox’s longtime ratings juggernaut is showing signs of slippage.) [snip]
No critical love. No marketing oomph. No-name cast. Together equal — what else? — ratings smash!
to be sure I wasn’t asking more of CBS’s 60 Minutes than is reasonable, I researched Journalism Ethics. I discovered that while the media is not
legally bound, the public assumes and expects it to be honor bound to enforce
the rules and avoid irresponsible and destructive journalism. But with this production, Christians in the Holy Land, both Jeffrey Fager, CBS news chairman and executive producer, and Bob
Simon, host reporter, have betrayed the values of their profession, and
produced a program that is not only severely slanted, but injurious to a
country, Israel, that is currently fighting for her survival and that we
Americans recognize to be our only trustworthy ally in the Middle East. Not only was the report of Christian life in
Israel inaccurate because Simon sought out and interviewed Arab-Christian
sources with an Islamic agenda, but it was sufficiently twisted to promote the
Palestinian narrative, which is contrived to suit the objective of the Islamic
as Islam is at war (jihad) with civilizations worldwide, so is it also at war
with Israel, and the tactics are as varied as the cultures and societies to be
subjugated. Among the many strategies
are open warfare, destruction, enslavement, and beheading in Africa; conversion,
rioting and occupying swaths of cities in Europe; infiltrating and scheming within
the administration and media in America; suicide bombings and rocket/missile
fire in Israel, and the overall use of propaganda to dupe the Western World. The Qur’an 9:29 commands that the Muslim
world fight the People of the Book
(Christians and Jews), and these Arab-Christians appear to have been motivated
by them, but the violence and non-violence policies are directed toward the
same end: the Islamization of the world and implementation of Sharia law over
all kafir societies.
objective should have been to remove personal prejudices (in which Bob Simon
seems extraordinarily steeped) and objectively report the truth. Rather, the story was complicit with the Arab
storyline, deserting the laws of our culture in order to aid Islam. They have not produced a factual report on
how Christians live in Israel; they interviewed Arab Christians who live in
Arab-controlled cities and who have adopted the Arab grievances. By not accurately describing Christian life
among Muslims, they have also continued to endanger those who are targeted for
their religion. In fact, this video
effort contributes to the suffering and death of Christians who live among
