According to the host, ABC just couldn’t decide between 27-year-old Britt and 29-year-old Kaitlyn so they went ahead and copied MTV‘s A Double Shot at Love and just threw caution to the wind.
Seeing as she’s the most funny contestant in the show’s history, we don’t really think Kaitlyn needs Britt’s help to carry the season, but hey, maybe this will cause the guys to actually display some sort of personality this time around.
Please just be more entertaining than boring ‘ol Chris and Whitney and/or Becca…
Ch-ch-check out the history making reveal (above)!!! [poll=61078]
The television host has since responded to the Mother Jones report, saying:
“Everything I’ve said about my career is 100% accurate. I never said I was on the Falkland Islands – nobody was. I said I covered the Falklands war, which we all did from Argentina and Uruguay, and I was in both places. There was a combat situation when the Argentines surrendered and thousands of people stormed the president’s palace. The dictator [Leopoldo] Galtieri was trying to kill him. Argentine troops fired into the crowd. I was right in the middle of it.”
David Corn, the author of the Mother Jones piece, says he asked Fox and Bill if they had any response BEFORE publishing the article, but they did not respond to him. Bill O’Reilly explained:
“I’m not going to speak to a guttersnipe like that, and if he wants to put lies out like that I’ll counter and disclaim. I want people to know what a liar he is.”
“To me, the issue here is whether a media figure and journalist like Bill O’Reilly, who claims to be a truth teller, can get away without answering questions about specific statements he’s made, and hide behind name calling. I would encourage anyone else who covers this story to get Bill O’Reilly to answer those questions — if not to me, than to anyone else.”
Bill O’Reilly was initially VERY upset with Brian Williams after the allegations came out that he wasn’t telling the truth, but later seemed to be dismayed at how hard the media was coming down on the suspended newsman.
Maybe he’s hoping the same type of punishment doesn’t happen to him?
Although we doubt Bill would get suspended even for a day from Fox as he’s WAY too valuable for the cable news channel.
Brian Williams just announced that he’ll be LEAVING his show NBC Nightly News although it will only be a temporary departure!
Williams has been in hot water ever since it was revealed that a story he’s been telling for years – about a helicopter he was on getting hit by a RPG – was actually false and he was on a different helicopter.
But we guess Brian’s original apology was NOT enough as the situation has snowballed until his just announced departure!
Lester Holt will be taking over for Brian Williams in the meanwhile while NBC conducts their own internal investigation.
Here’s what Brian Williams said about his departure:
“In the midst of a career spent covering and consuming news, it has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news, due to my actions.
As Managing Editor of NBC Nightly News, I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days, and Lester Holt has kindly agreed to sit in for me to allow us to adequately deal with this issue. Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us.”
That makes sense that he doesn’t want to be a distraction although it’s unclear just how long Brian Williams will be staying away.
If he’s banking on this situation going away – he may have to wait awhile!
We’re absolutely stunned by all of this though that’s for sure!
“No. Nor Sir Ian McKellen, either… I was learning quite a lot moreabout it last night, and it is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. And so I don’t think we’ll be making an appearance.”
Although who knows? Maybe some edits will be made and the two thesps will be thrown into the upcoming movie.
The X-Men: Days of Future Past sequel is slated for a 2016 release, and will reportedly feature younger versions of the mutants established in previous films, including Cyclops, Storm and Jean Grey.
Bryan Singer will direct again. Can we hope for a Professor X and Magneto cameo please? Pretty please?
