We welcomed former U.S. Senator Bob Graham, Democrat from Florida to our Fort Lauderdale remote liveshot studio. Senator Graham was live on the FOX Business Channel show ‘The independents” discussing the classified 911 report. Senator Graham said that most Americans would find it hard to believe that the 19 terrorist hijackers, most of whom didn’t speak English or had never been in the United States, could have planned and executed such a complicated and elaborate plot without any outside help. Senator Graham also addressed the 911 victims families’ who have been denied access to the courts because they haven’t had access to the 28 pages of classified documents. Senator Graham chaired the joint inquiry in 2002 and is demanding more disclosure on these classified documents.
Our South Florida remote uplink broadcast tv studio had the pleasure of hosting Star Jones as our guest. Star Jones was live on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight from our Fort Lauderdale studio discussing the recent A&E suspension of the Duck Dynasty Star Phil Robertson. Robertson was put on indefinite suspension for anti-gay comments he made in a recent interview with GQ magazine. Robertson’s comments have sparked much debate, controversy and outrage among many groups. While the LGBT community and GLAAD condemn Robertson’s comments, there are those, including Former Governor Sarah Palin, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, who have come to the Duck Dynasty star’s defense. On Facebook Palin wrote “Those ‘intolerants’ hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us.” Governor Jindal criticized “the politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with.” Jindal went on to say “that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views.”
Star Jones discussed the issue with Piers Morgan and said “as an American citizen you should feel outraged whenever anybody claims to love America but clearly can’t stand a bunch of Americans.” Star is an attorney and national spokesperson for the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW).
We welcome to our South Florida liveshot studio (servicing the Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach tri-county area) Jose Li, CEO of 71 LBS. Mr. Li was our guest live on Bloomberg TV discussing his company’s innovative way of keeping track and collecting refunds owed to customers from companies like UPS and Fed Ex.
71 LBS tracks those packages acting as an “industry watchdog” ensuring that small and medium sized businesses receive the refunds they are entitled to when such shipments fail to be delivered within the guaranteed time. Fed Ex and UPS both guarantee their shipment arrival dates and times. As Mr. Li points out, many businesses don’t claim their refunds and as a result, there is an excess of money (more than 2 billion dollars a year according to Mr. Li) that remain unclaimed. 71 LBS makes it easy for these small to medium businesses to claim their money as his company has automated their system to track this info and collect refunds.
FOX News legal panel discussion in the latest in the bizarre case of the embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. FOX News’ Happening Now host, Jenna Lee, asks criminal defense attorneys Phil Snyder and Heather Hansen their respective takes on whether the mayor can and should be charged with a crime. Court documents show the mayor trying to buy what is alleged to be crack from suspected drug dealers. But as Phil Snyder points out, (in spite of the mayor’s admission that he bought crack) there is no actual physical evidence that the mayor bought crack as there is no drug for the authorities to run tests on. Hansen brings up the argument that possible obstruction of justice charges can be filed if the police can prove the mayor tried to get the tape in an effort to hide it as evidence.
