A TERRIBLE dependency culture has developed on ITV daytime. Six days a week now, This Morning hammers home the message its viewers are the most helpless, mollycoddled invertebrates on the planet. A form of life so useless that last November Dr Chris Steele, the show’s resident quack, genuinely felt the need to give us all bottom-wiping advice. “It’s a front-to-back action for women,” more of a hit-and-hope exercise for men. In return for this constant nannying, we pick up a phone once a year and gurgle: “You’re absolutely right. We are useless. Have a trophy.” And it’s a depressing cycle that will continue for as long as there are National Television Awards, live from The O2. A ceremony where the categories may chop and change every year, but the stupidity remains ritualised. As well as getting all the usual winners though, viewers also had to endure a technical nightmare on Tuesday, where things went wrong — from the … [Read more...] about This Morning wins at NTA Awards — but not GMB as Best Presenter award going to Ant and Dec makes ‘a nonsense’ of the occasion

When he passed away, the 41st president of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush, was 94. His one term in office began in 1989, and coincided with the end of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. You're about to hear from three former presidents, a rare occurrence in and of itself, discuss the life and legacy of George H.W. Bush. In recent interviews, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush all acknowledged number 41 was one of the best-prepared presidents in American history. Before becoming commander in chief, he was a fighter pilot, an oilman, a congressman, a diplomat, head of the CIA, and Ronald Reagan's vice president for two terms. He was also married to Barbara Bush for 73 years, until her death this past April. Together they had six children. We begin tonight with their eldest son, President George W.

By Daniel Brown | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: September 3, 2018 at 7:00 am | UPDATED: September 4, 2018 at 4:17 am If he performs within an area code of the hype, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo soon could be the (extremely handsome) face of the NFL. “If he lives up to expectations, he could become the top endorser in football. He has no ceiling at this point,” said sports marketing expert Bob Dorfman. It’s easy to see the appeal, unless, perhaps, you’re an NFL defensive back. Garoppolo, 26, heads into his first full season as the 49ers starter with an undefeated record and the second-hand glint of the Tom Brady influence. After coming from the New England Patriots in a trade last season, Garoppolo went 5-0 as a starter and threw for 1,542 yards, the most ever by a quarterback in his first five starts for the 49ers. If you think that face is everywhere now just wait until he plays, like, a full season or something. As it … [Read more...] about Can 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo become face of the NFL?
