ESPN has scrubbed out one of the most defining moments of the Boston Red Sox's 2004 World Series playoff run that involved controversial pitcher and recently fired ESPN analyst Curt Schilling and his famous bloody sock from a documentary that aired over the weekend.
On Sunday night, ESPN broadcast the 2010 "30 for 30" documentary titled "Four Days in October." The documentary focuses on the 2004 Red Sox, who became the first MLB team to battle back from a three-game deficit in a seven-game playoff series when they beat the rival New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series to advance to the World Series.
When the documentary played on ESPN 2 this time around, the sports network left out a very integral part of the documentary that highlights Schilling's performance in the sixth game of the series. more >>
John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, has called Bill Nye "The Science Guy" a "pretend scientist in a bow tie," and argued that his suggestion of jailing climate change skeptics is akin to the jailing of Italian astronomer Galielo Galilei.
"I have always been amazed that anyone would pay attention to Bill Nye, a pretend scientist in a bow tie," Coleman said in an interview, according to Climate Depot.
"As a man who has studied the science of meteorology for over 60 years and received the AMS (American Meteorological Society's) 'Meteorologist of the Year' award, I am totally offended that Nye gets the press and media attention he does," he added. more >>

Actress and former Church of Scientology member Leah Remini recently defended the decision of Ron Miscavige to write a tell-all book about the current head of the controversial sect.
Titled Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me and slated for release in May, the book was coauthored by Dan Koon.

Today's liberals have betrayed the principles of free thought and open-mindedness they proclaim to profess by using "authoritarian control" to silence conservatives and others who don't share their opinions, conservative author Kim R. Holmes said Wednesday.
Holmes, a historian of political movements and a distinguished fellow at the Heritage Foundation, was the featured speaker at a Heritage Foundation discussion in Washington, D.C. that focused on his recently released book The Closing of the Liberal Mind: How Groupthink and Intolerance Define the Left.
Although the definition of liberalism is to permit the free flow of ideas and protect freedom of expression, Holmes asserts that liberals today have "turned the cause of equality into a weapon that could be used against freedom of speech." more >>
After being fired by ESPN last week for publishing his opinion in support of North Carolina's transgender law, retired Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling spoke out against his former employer Wednesday, saying the network employs some of the "biggest racists" in sports commentating.
Schilling, a three-time World Series winner who was a color baseball commentator for the Disney-owned sports network, lost his job last Wednesday over a comment he posted in reply to an anti-transgender Facebook meme.
Schilling's comment stated: "A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don't care what they are, who they sleep with, men's room was designed for the penis, women's not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently, Pathetic!" more >>
