U.K.’s Sky News Does Interview About Charlie Cover, Cuts Feed in a Panic When Interviewee Attempts To Show It

This clip comes to you thanks to the 24-hour TV station Sky News, based in Britain. It’s an outfit that, like many others, purports to cover the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo killings without possessing the intestinal fortitude to show any of the weekly paper’s Islam-mocking covers.

I Had No Idea I Was Capable of Such Savagery

Last week, I posted about a resolution passed by the Winfield City Council in Alabama — suggested and endorsed by Mayor Randy Price (below) — which declared Winfield a “City Under God” with God as the city’s “owner.”
