Recently, on Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News program “The Factor,” the news O’Reilly talked about was…his own book and movie.
He defended allegations that his book was a “Tea Party version” of Jesus’ life (per the British newspaper The Guardian).
Here is the full paragraph from The Guardian:
“These specials usually put O’Reilly’s patented conservative slant on retellings of history, something that wouldn’t really sit well with Christians. The book fell into this trap, presenting salacious detail about Christ’s death and a Tea Party version of the son of God. Some claimed it was inaccurate (a recent charge against some of O’Reilly’s reporting, too). And the criticism isn’t only coming from the left. The movie was not without controversy among some conservative Christians for another reason: the man cast to play Jesus, Haaz Sleiman, was raised Muslim.”
Social Security advocates are accusing House Republicans of launching a “sneak attack” on disability insurance on the very first day of the new Congress.
The House on Tuesday passed legislation laying out parliamentary rules for the year. The bill included a little-noticed provision blocking Congress from shifting funds to prevent a 2016 shortfall in Social Security’s disability insurance program.
The Social Security Administration’s actuaries projected that the disability insurance program’s trust fund will run out of money next year, resulting in a 20 percent benefit reduction for nearly 11 million Americans.
