Like Two Corinthians?
Actually I was raised hearing it called Two Corinthians etc. if you listen to the Bible In one Year App they say Two Corinthians. I never understood why people got so exercised about that

It's interesting how we look at things through our own filters. I could have sworn during the 2016 election The Hill was [in the tank for Trump.

There is a media watchdog site called AllSides that measures the biases of media outlets. If I figured out how to load a jpeg into my post correctly you will see it's rated "non-biased". Ratings from other outlets look correct.

I'm old enough to remember when this qualified as a controversy. We were so young and naive back then.

I don’t think this site is in danger. Especially since they have changed the name. The accesss might become limited though
That's what people of his ilk and other dictators do. Instead of addressing the problem head on they try to silence the opposition.

At this point it's all becoming very comical. Between Jerry's response to the chickens on here running around with their heads cutoff. It made me think a couple of things.

First what is the vibe on campus like? Are student's feeling uneasy about all of this or do they even care?

Second what is the best case scenario for all of this and what is the absolute worst scenario for all of this?

Best case scenario: JFJR admits his indiscretions and apologizes. JFJR recognizes that he is a detriment to the universities mission and amicably moves aside in the best interest of the university.

Worst case scenario: JFJR doubles down and blames everyone but himself, including the 'fake news' and the 'liberal media.'

Looks like we're going with worst case scenario.

It would go a long way to hear Jerry Jr actually admit that he was wrong about something. His father had absolutely zero problems apologizing and admitting when he misspoke or did something wrong. Jr simply triple downs on his behavior and dares people to challenge him.

So either way months from now everything at school is still running smoothly and people just move on? Is there any chance the IRS gets involved or something along those lines where the school loses its non profit or credibility?

Best case: Jerry repents, restores his relationship with Jonathan, and begins leading the university in a way that represents who we are.

Best case that’s actually plausible: he takes a cabinet position with Trump and steps down.

Worst case: he continues to fight this aggressively and proudly further damaging the reputation of the school all while the board sits by and does nothing.

I thought mine was clearly a joke. Not really meant to be serious. Lol

I have very occasionally heard it mentioned as Two Corinthians as well.

You named your daughter after Ronald Reagan? YIKES

"Ashley Reagan". Michael Reagan named his daughter the same so Reagan had a granddaughter with the same name. :) Not that we knew that when we named her.
I have no idea who that is.
My daughters name is Ashley Reagan. Hope that helps with the “yikes” factor. :roll:

For 21 years, I have maintained an impeccable reputation for documenting Miami Beach’s storied social scene.

We wholly reject Jerry Falwell Jr.’s baseless allegation in yesterday’s Politico report by Brandon Ambrosino that one of our pictures was “photo-shopped” or manipulated in any fashion.

We, in fact, did not know Politico’s purpose for licensing the image and were as surprised as anyone to discover that Mr. Falwell was among the partygoers we photographed on July 19, 2014 at WALL Lounge.

As a result, we reviewed all the images we have from the event and discovered an additional four photos that include Mr. Falwell and two more of his son.

They’ve now updated the post to include the other family members who were there. Here are the rest of the pictures taken that night. I’m pretty sure a lot of us would have gotten in some serious trouble at LU if we went to this club.

I'm heartbroken for my school. Disgusted it's reached this point. With all of the good things that are happening at Liberty in the academic and athletic realm, we're forced to continuously deal with irreverent leadership.

I hope this goes away and goes away quickly. I know it'll be an ugly divorce but something has got to break at some point.

Some of us probably would've gotten in trouble but I don't really care about that. I just wish he would've been honest. It is such a silly thing to lie about. It is this lie that really stands out to me because it is just so small in the grand scheme of things. It is hard for one to trust anything said by someone who is willing to lie about something so small.

I too, am very curious. It seems, from the outside looking in, it is viewed as much of the same. They create memes and laugh it off and don't seem to take it too seriously but maybe I am wrong.

I would love to get their point of view for sure.
