Headlines - Saturday June 16

That makes it sound Neil Munro was instructed to interrupt and harrass the President of the United States by his bosses at the Caller. Which wouldn't be very surprising being that rudeness is a part of the GOP's strategy.

Joe "You Lie" Wilson and Justice Samuel "Not True" Alito must be proud.

UPDATE: Here are statements from Munro, Carlson and their publisher:

Neil Munro, White House Correspondent: "I always go to the White House prepared with questions for our president. I timed the question believing the president was closing his remarks, because naturally I have no intention of interrupting the President of the United States. I know he rarely takes questions before walking away from the podium. When I asked the question as he finished his speech, he turned his back on the many reporters, and walked away while I and at least one other reporter asked questions."

Tucker Carlson, Editor-in-Chief: "I don't remember Diane Sawyer scolding her colleague Sam Donaldson for heckling President Reagan. And she shouldn't have. A reporter's job is to ask questions and get answers. Our job is to find out what the federal government is up to. Politicians often don't want to tell us. A good reporter gets the story. We're proud of Neil Munro."

Neil Patel, Publisher: "The President today announced a very controversial policy and does not want to answer tough questions about it. Neil Munro is a veteran Washington reporter who today tried his best to time his question to be first as the President was wrapping up his remarks. He in no way meant to heckle the President of the United States."


On June 26th the military will officially recognize LGBT pride month for the first time in history.


Fifth-grade student Kameron Slade from New York was removed from a school contest after basing his speech on the discussion and acceptance of same-sex marriage.

He had the last laugh by delivering his speech to a local news station instead.

It's worth mentioning that President Obama has made it socially acceptable for the young African-American Kameron Slade to say these things.
