Muse Seymour's insight:

A lot with the NFL needs to be looked at. Next they need to look at MLB and the crazy blackout restrictions and territorial rights employed there.

Muse Seymour's insight:

Just because Ted Cruz stands up for Israel does not mean that he supports religious freedoms. Looking at the comments he makes about Israel and ignoring every other speech he's ever made is pure hyperbole. Standing up for Israel for political reasons is not the same as being a Jewish ally.

Fox's Doocy: NASA fudged data to make the case for global warming

GetOn climate change, Gallup pollsters say Americans divide into three groups -- the "Concerned Believers," the "Mixed Middle," and the "Cool Skeptics." Believers have a slender plurality at 39 percent but skeptics make up a solid 25 percent. They think there’s little to worry about and that media reports on the topic are exaggerated. Fox News host Steve Doocy gave the doubters some ammunition on June 24, 2014. In a segment on Fox and Friends called "News by the Numbers," Doocy drew viewers’ attention to the year 1934. "That's the hottest year on record in the United States," Doocy said. ...

At the congressional level, the drawing of the new borders was led by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) and resulted
