Veteran radio and television broadcaster Larry King says he thinks the only reason religion exists is because people fear death and declared "I'm probably an atheist."
King made the revelation last Thursday on the popular Power 105.1 morning radio show in New York City called "The Breakfast Club" hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God.
In a portion of the interview beginning at about the 8-minute 15-second mark, King and the hosts engage in a discussion about life and death after Charlamagne Tha God questioned the 81-year-old, who's been married seven times, about his desire to freeze his body after he dies. more >>

A television watchdog group is calling for the cancellation of a TV show that features couples (both gay and straight) who have sex in an enclosed box and then walk out in front of a live studio audience to discuss their sexual likes, dislikes and relationship issues with a three-person panel.
The Parents Television Council has created a petition calling for the WE cable network to cancel the "Sex Box" TV show, which is scheduled to debut on Friday, Feb. 27.
"This new reality show far exceeds the limits of decency when its participants enter a soundproof box on stage, have sex, and then discuss their 'intimacy issues' with a panel of so-called experts," reads the petition. more >>
In a three-day period, there was a remarkable shakeup in the world of secular media. What are we to make of it?
First, on February 10th, respected anchorman Brian Williams was suspended by NBC after he was caught in several embarrassing lies.
Second, also on February 10th, influential Comedy Channel "news" anchor Jon Stewart announced his resignation on his daily TV show, completely unexpectedly. more >>
This gem from John Nolte came across my Twitter feed the other day: "Met Brian Williams once in DC. Starting to wonder about that story he told me about saving all those hostages at Nakotami Plaza. Barefoot."
Brian Williams is a liar. I don't mean that as an insult. He seems nice. I feel sorry for the poor sap. People who lie are called liars. Once you're caught in a lie, or multiple lies as the case may be, your credibility is shot. You're now open to ridicule and scorn. You can, and should apologize, as Williams has done, but earning back the trust of those you have lied to takes time and is often never achieved. Actions have consequences. Forgiveness? Sure. Trust? Maybe, maybe not.
Like most in the media, Williams is also a hardcore liberal. While not all liberals are liars, lying is endemic to hardcore liberalism. It is a natural byproduct of moral relativism, the worldview from which liberalism derives. more >>
