‘Mama June’ angry about TLC’s double standard for Duggars: ‘It’s OK to have family touch time? Hell no’

Published

on

The former star of another TLC reality show is angry about the apparent double standard the Duggar family is enjoying despite revelations that they covered up their son’s molestation of young girls – including his sisters.

“Mama June” Shannon, who appeared in the cable network’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” said she is considering a lawsuit against TLC – which promptly canceled her popular show in October after she began dating an accused molester.

“I read that the Duggar family said, this happening with their son brought them closer to God and each other,” Shannon said. “So they’re saying it’s OK to have family touch time? Hell no.”

TLC has canceled all airing of “19 Kids and Counting” as the network ponders the show’s long0term future.

TLC followed through Thursday with its scheduled “19 Kids and Counting Marathon” – although a source told Vox the network replaced some episodes later that night, after the family confirmed the molestation reports, to minimize the eldest son’s airtime.

Shannon said it was “blatantly unfair” that TLC dropped her show when she resumed a romantic relationship with Mark McDaniel, who sexually abused her daughter multiple times when the girl was 8 years old.

She said McDaniel, who served a prison term for the abuse, never appeared on the TLC program – unlike Josh Duggar.

Shannon said she lost hundreds of thousands of dollars due to her show’s cancellation, and she is considering a lawsuit over what she sees as inconsistent and unfair treatment.

The 27-year-old Duggar, who resigned his position Thursday with the anti-LGBT Family Research Council, frequently complains that Christians are targets of discrimination by the government and secularists.

The show has been targeted for cancellation by activists angered by the family’s outspoken opposition to LGBT rights, but patriarch Jim Bob Duggar bragged the network would never cancel its most popular program.

Fox News is so obsessed with Ocasio-Cortez they said her name three times as much as CNN or MSNBC

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
