In this extended transcript of his interview with correspondent Tracy Smith for "Sunday Morning," broadcasting giant Howard Stern opens up about his parents and wife, psychoanalysis, apologizing for his past interviews, the freedom of being on SiriusXM satellite radio, and the art of the interview which, he says, is disappearing. Howard Stern: My mother said to me, I said, "Oh mom, tomorrow I'm talking to 'CBS Sunday Morning.'" She goes, "Why don't you tell me you're on TV?" I go, "No, no, no." I'm trying to explain to her that it's taped in advance. (LAUGHS) Tracy Smith: So, your first two books were best sellers, they set records. Stern: They did. Smith: And now you're saying, "Throw 'em away"? Stern: Yes, yes, that's the message in the new book. First of all, I didn't expect to write a new book. You know, I was done with books, the world of books. They're torture. They take a lotta time and I actually put a lotta thought into these things. But I looked at my last two books … [Read more...] about Extended transcript: Howard Stern

Stage lights shifted from blue to white as the backing band played a drifting melody. Two men hoisted curled rams’ horns and let out long blasts.“Some of you have been saying you want to live in biblical times,” Cahn said, pacing behind a lectern. Then he spread his hands wide. “Well, you are.”Sitting at the end of a sleepy drive an hour from New York City, Beth Israel may look like any common suburban church. But the center has a highly unusual draw. Every weekend, some 1,000 congregants gather for the idiosyncratic teachings of the church’s celebrity pastor, an entrepreneurial doomsday prophet who … [Read more...] about Preaching the gospel According to Trump
ATTEMPTING to explain why some ungrateful morons felt compelled to vandalise war memorials with white paint, an academic compared RAF Bomber Command to terrorists. Dr Kehinde Andrews, of Birmingham City University, accused crews who bombed Nazi Germany of “war crimes”. “Britain started this,” Dr Andrews told ITV’s Good Morning Britain. “We started the tactics of bombing cities. Why should we be proud of everything that happens in war? This is state terrorism.” Dr Andrews is living proof of just how shockingly stupid an educated man can be. Because it is totally wrong to suggest that the British invented the practice of bombing civilian populations in World War Two. Has this academic airhead ever heard of the Blitz? From September 7, 1940, London was bombed by the Luftwaffe for 56 out of the following 57 nights. More than one million houses were blown to bits. One of them was next door to the house my mum grew up in. All the children she … [Read more...] about To Lefties, Britain is ALWAYS the bad guy even when we fight Nazis — but RAF Bomber Command are real heroes
Mitch McConnell Got Everything He Wanted. But at What Cost? Sections Skip to content Skip to site index Feature The president whom the Senate Republican leader helped elect has turned out to be the one thing he can’t control. Mitch McConnell in the United States Capitol in December. Credit Credit Damon Winter/The New York Times Supported by ByCharles Homans Jan. 22, 2019 At sunrise, there it was: a red-tailed hawk, its gyre widening over the United States Capitol building in the Creamsicle-colored light, like the world’s least subtle literary reference. It was still there by midafternoon, drifting on the thermals over the mostly depopulated National Mall, wheeling occasionally past the window in the hallway outside the office where the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, sat on the 20th day of what would soon become the longest government shutdown in American history. That morning, Jan. 10, … [Read more...] about Mitch McConnell Got Everything He Wanted. But at What Cost?
WASHINGTON — Last November, diplomats from Brazil to Japan joined oil and gas executives at the headquarters of Washington's largest lobbying group to christen a new partnership. Inside the marble walls of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a crowd of 200 welcomed the U.S. Gas Infrastructure Exports Initiative — a coalition of 25 companies, nine trade groups, five law firms, at least five federal agencies and a nonprofit think tank. Its mission: to drive sales of American natural gas by pumping dollars into pipelines and gas-processing facilities overseas. The initiative, coordinated in part by a natural gas lobbyist, is the latest federal effort to market the fuel as a "clean" energy source amid surging U.S. drilling and exports. American gas production is projected to account for almost 40 percent of the world's gas growth through 2040, according to the International Energy Agency. Countries like China are buying up tank loads of LNG — natural gas that has been … [Read more...] about When it comes to natural gas, US ‘open for business’
