Sponsors Threaten NBC if They Continue to Show NFL Protests


Reported By Kim Smith | November 7, 2017 at 5:03pm

The NFL continues to feel the pain from football players’ national anthem protests. NBC Universal’s head of advertising, Linda Yaccarino, said network advertisers are not happy with the ongoing protests. They’re so unhappy, in fact, that marketers told the network to stop airing the protests or they will pull their ads, Business Insider reported.

Speaking during an interview Friday, Yaccarino said that while no advertisers have pulled out of NFL games yet, that could change. Yaccarino said that although it’s hard to prove definitively, she believes the protests are having a negative impact on ratings.

“I don’t think there’s any way to prove it, but I do think it has affected the ratings,” she said during a “fireside chat” with Oath CEO Tim Armstrong at the Manhattan offices of Verizon’s media agency, R/GA.

She may not think there is a way to prove it, but anyone paying attention is well aware that protests are a big problem for the league. Yaccarino said there are many advertisers who are reaching a boiling point.

“There is a list of advertisers that have made themselves very clear: ‘If you continue to cover the political coverage of the issue, we will not be part of the NFL,’” Yaccarino said, according to Deadline.

“Think about it — they have half the country that is cheering about that and half the country that is emailing them saying, ‘Don’t do that.’ That’s a real thing.”

Last Wednesday, Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter attributed slow sales in the third quarter of 2017 to the controversy surrounding the protests, asserting that the controversy was diminishing the pizza chain’s advertising.

“NFL leadership has hurt Papa John’s shareholders,” Schnatter said, in a call with analysts, as reported by CBS. “This should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago.”

Schnatter criticized NFL leadership for letting the issue fester.

“We’re certainly disappointed that NFL and its leadership did not resolve the ongoing situation to the satisfaction of all parties this year, year-and-a-half ago,” he said.

“Good or bad, leadership starts at the top, and this is an example of poor leadership,” the CEO said.

Schnatter hit the nail on the head, and his comments reflect how many Americans feel about the matter. That’s probably why advertisers are reconsidering advertising during NFL games.

Chuck Todd Is Right: It Is a War on Truth


Commentary by Bryan Fischer Host of “Focal Point” | Thursday, June 29, 2017 @ 12:46 PM

Chuck Todd Is Right: It Is a War on TruthYesterday, NBC News anchor Chuck Todd said this: 

 I’m obsessed with the White House’s war on the press and on the media. Let’s be clear about this, that war is nothing less than a war on the truth. Do we get it right all the time? Nope, we don’t. And when we don’t, we run a correction, and in some cases, people lose their jobs. That’s what just happened at CNN. CNN took responsibility for its mistakes. 

At this network, we’ve done it quite a few times publicly as well. But because we try to get it right we take what we do seriously, because truth, viewers and readers’ trust is all we have and without that, we’re nothing. 

Todd is right that what we are talking about is a war on truth. Only he’s got it backwards. It is not Donald Trump who’s waging this war on truth but the low-information media. 

Even Todd himself admits that NBC has choked on the truth “quite a few times” and has been forced to publicly correct its errors. Thus Todd himself admits that NBC can’t be trusted. If they got it wrong then, why should we trust them now? If it turns out we shouldn’t have believed them then, why should believe what they are telling us now? 

The premiere case in point of all this is the Talking Snake Media’s obsession with the substance-free accusation that Trump somehow colluded with the Russians to steal the election from the American people. (I call them the Talking Snake Media in honor of their patron saint, the snake in the Garden of Eden who lied to Eve in order to frustrate the purposes of God.) 

There never was any evidence at all of any such collusion despite over a year’s worth of investigation. A senior producer at CNN (which I refer to as the “Counterfeit News Network”) revealed to an undercover reporter from Project Veritas that there was in fact no smoking gun, the whole thing was probably “bull****”, and that they had only been ordered to refocus on the Russia thing because it was good for ratings. 

To top it off, Van Jones, CNN’s resident communist commentator, admitted to another undercover journalist, “This Russia thing is a nothing-burger.” 

In other words, CNN is not searching for the truth, they are searching for viewers. The truth to them is utterly disposable if twisting and distorting it serves their agenda. 

Well, focusing on the fabricated Trump-Russia story is not working any more for CNN. Its ratings are in a free fall, now dropping far behind both Fox and MSNBC in prime time. 

There is a larger dynamic at work here, especially for people of faith. And that dynamic is that error and falsehood can only be propped up for so long. You can lie to people for a time, but eventually the truth will come out and the lie will be exposed for the ugly thing that it is. Abraham Lincoln was credited with saying, “You can fool all of the people some of the time, you can fool some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all of the time.” 

Satan lied to Eve and got her to believe his lie because it was, well, so believable. The fruit was, he told her, “good for food, a delight to the eyes, and desirable to make one wise” (Genesis 3:6). Eve believed the believable lie, convinced her husband to join her, and the horrible truth was revealed in an instant. 

The point here is that the fake news the media has been dishing out may sound plausible at first blush, but the façade cannot be sustained. If the media continues to traffic in patent falsehoods, eventually their entire enterprise will collapse in on itself. In an almost biblical sense, the media will fall into the pit they have dug for the others. 

That implosion seems to be happening as we speak. CNN is firing reporters for filing utterly bogus stories about Trump and Russia and is now admitting that there is no evidence to support the charge. CNN is rapidly going from the most trusted name in news to the most busted name in news. 

CNN and the rest of the media has blindly blundered on, to focus now on an equally unsupportable lie, that the president obstructed justice by doing his job and exercising his constitutional responsibilities as the head of the executive branch. 

Jesus told us that if we abide in His words, we will know the truth, and the truth will set us free (John 8:32). We can spot the lies of the media in an instant by comparing what they say to what the Scriptures say. The truth of Scripture is the carpenter’s level we use to identify declarations that align with the truth, and separate them from those that don’t. 

The media is waging its war on the truth by relentlessly assaulting the truth not only about public policy matters but about abortion, marriage, the family, sexual immorality, homosexuality, abortion, and everything else under the sun. But Christian citizens are not duped. 

Todd said that without the viewers’ trust, “we’re nothing.” He’s got that right. The jig is up, the American people are on to him and his ilk, and in the end the truth will be the only thing left standing. May Mr. Todd and his colleagues enjoy a long, serene, and fact-free retirement as soon as possible.

SHOCK POLL finds Trump and the GOP Destroying the Democrat Party


waving flag disclaimerReported By Onan Coca February 28, 2017

No, we’re not talking about a poll from a Republican outfit, and we’re not talking about a survey from a “right wing” website. The poll we’re talking about is from is from a mainstream media outlet.

The latest poll from the folks at NBC and the Wall Street Journal has revealed some shocking information that NBC has chosen to spin in an effort to make the President look bad. Here’s what NBC’s headline had to say about their poll…

Trump’s Job Approval Stands at Just 44 Percent as Partisan Splits Reignmore-leftist-propaganda

Oh no. Sounds like it must have been a rough poll for the President, doesn’t it? This is where NBC focuses their reporting on this poll — the fact that Trump’s numbers aren’t great and that Democrats don’t support him at all. But if they would have just dug a little deeper into their own numbers, they might have learned a very different set of lessons. They might have learned that the majority of those polled (53%) believe that the media has been too critical of Trump and has “exaggerated” the problems in the Trump administration. Or they might have noticed that the majority of Americans (52%) believe that President Trump and the GOP should be taking the lead in setting policy for our nation!

If NBC had been worried about writing something more than a hit piece against President Trump, they might have also noticed that more Americans have been “harmed” by Obamacare than have been helped.

But the real “nail in the coffin” for this poll can be seen when examining those dreaded “popularity” numbers that the media loves to focus on. While the liberals are busy crowing about how unpopular President Trump is, it’s worth noting that he’s far MORE popular than most of the Democrat leadership and more popular than the Democrat Party as a whole!

In fact, Guy Benson at Townhall perfectly explains just how upside-down NBC’s reporting on their own poll actually is.

The president’s approval rating is slightly underwater (44/48), a figure that is leavened by fairly widespread optimism about the future of the country and US economy.   Sixty percent say they’re “hopeful and optimistic” about America, with 40 percent calling themselves “worried and pessimistic.”  By a similar 20-point margin, more Americans say they expect the economy to improve over the next year, with only one-in-five expecting it to worsen.  In certain circles, it’s taken for granted that the sky is falling, but that sentiment simply hasn’t taken root among most Americans.  Liberal Bubble-dwellers believe the nation has galvanized against Trump, with pervasive buyers’ remorse setting in; this data punctures that illusion.  As for favorability, despite all the news coverage painting Trump as a train wreck, Republicans as craven enablers, and Democrats as righteous opponents, Trump and his allies are in much better shape than the Democratic Party…

This poll may be used as evidence that the President is unpopular, but it’s better evidence of the fact that our national media has completely lost its mind when it comes to Donald Trump. While Trump may not be Mr. Popular, the majority of the American people would rather walk the path being laid out by Trump and the GOP than to continue down the road to ruin from the Obama era.enemedia

The $9 billion man? Donald Trump set to announce 2016 plans

WASHINGTON (AP) — With a presidential field approaching 20 high-profile Republicans, the GOP’s 2016 class offers voters a little bit of everything.

There is the top-tier, a group that includes former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who formally launched his candidacy on Monday. There are the single-issue candidates such as South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who talks about national security and little else. There are even the quixotic underdogs, such as Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, ambitious against all odds.

And then there is Donald Trump. The Donald, as he is known as a celebrity, will announce his 2016 intentions on Tuesday at a Manhattan skyscraper that bears his name.

He is a businessman, a reality television star and a master of self-promotion. And should (UPDATE: HAS ANNOUNCED) he decide to run, Trump is positioned to have a greater impact on the early months of the Republican presidential primary contest than many GOP leaders would like.

Should he get in, Trump would be required to release a personal financial disclosure that would reveal intimate details about his personal finances. The disclosure would include his net worth, sources of income, liabilities and assets. He would have to reveal the same information for his wife and dependent children. Trump is ready to do so. On Tuesday, he will share details about his personal finances that reveal a net worth of $9 billion, according to a person close to his potential campaign who spoke on the condition of anonymity so as not to pre-empt the announcement.

The financial disclosure, required of all candidates for president, was thought to be the final obstacle blocking Trump from launching a 2016 campaign. Based on guidelines recently announced by the television networks, Trump could play a prominent role in the upcoming nationally televised Republican debate in August. Those who rank in the top 10 in national polls — and Trump currently does, although he’s close to the bottom — will earn a place on the debate stage. That could place Trump in a debate alongside leading candidates such as Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Bush.

“Selfishly, the networks would put me on because I get great ratings,” Trump said in a recent interview with The Associated Press.

Trump has teased presidential runs before, and always backed out. But there are signs that he’s more serious this time around. After forming a presidential exploratory committee in March, Trump says he has hired political operatives on the ground in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. He has also been a frequent visitor to the early voting states in recent months.

Perhaps most significantly, he said he would not renew his contract with NBC for his reality show, “The Apprentice.” He cannot appear on the network and run for president at the same time. Picture2freedom combo 2
