Advisory: Be careful of what you read on social media. The algorithms used by these platforms have no regard for Biblical truth. They target your emotions to keep you engaged on their site so their advertisers can drop more ads. These platforms exist to enrich their stockholders. Consider God’s promise to Believers in James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

People can be found being nosey in all kinds of situations—offices, cable news,churches, families, and social media all contain nosey people. The motive for being nosey could be boredom, dissatisfaction with one’s own life, or a desire to influence others. Paul’s solution for the busybodies in Timothy’s church is the same solution for nosey people today: find something profitable to do (1 Timothy 5:14).

Being nosey may seem harmless enough, but it is interesting that the Bible associates idleness with evil. Paul tells the women in Timothy’s church to be busy with their own families and so “give the enemy no opportunity for slander” (1 Timothy 5:14). The writer of Proverbs says, “A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends” (Proverbs 16:28), and Paul equates slander and gossip with foolishness, malice, and even murder (Romans 1:29–32), sins that lead to spiritual death.

Rachel Maddow isn’t backing away from her coverage of President Donald Trump and any connection to Russia’s involvement in trying to influence the 2016 presidential campaign. The question is how much her fans want to listen.

Maddow’s audience has dipped on her two days back on the air since Attorney General William Barr reported that special counsel Robert Mueller had found no collusion between Trump and Russia’s efforts. Her audience of 2.5 million on Monday was 19 percent below her average this year, and it went down further to 2.3 million on Tuesday, the Nielsen company said.

Meanwhile, her head-to-head competitor on Fox News Channel, Sean Hannity, saw his audience soar on Monday to 4 million viewers, a 32 percent increase from his average. It slipped to 3.57 million on Tuesday. One of Trump’s most prominent media fans, Hannity was to interview the president on Wednesday’s show.

Hannity and Maddow have run neck-and-neck atop the cable news ratings this year, with Maddow having the slight edge.

The Fake News Media is going Crazy! They are suffering a major “breakdown,” have ZERO credibility or respect, & must be thinking about going legit. I have learned to live with Fake News, which has never been more corrupt than it is right now. Someday, I will tell you the secret!135K5:13 AM – Mar 28, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy55.1K people are talking about this

Fox’s Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham also saw their audiences top their averages both days, while other prime-time hosts on MSNBC and CNN saw their audiences plunge.

The phenomenon isn’t unusual; political camps are more interested in watching news when it reflects well on their favorites, and vice versa. Maddow’s ratings dropped sharply in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, as many fans of Hillary Clinton couldn’t bring themselves to watch the news after Trump’s victory, but eventually rebounded. Similarly, Hannity saw some ratings weakness late last year as bad news piled up for Trump.

Maddow has been the most visible television personality taking on Trump during Mueller’s probe, her reports methodical and detailed. As a result, she’s a target of Trump supporters seeking vindication. The New York Post compiled a mock “Mueller Madness” bracket of Trump critics with Maddow the top-seeded cable news figure, and the chart was retweeted Wednesday by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

Wow, ratings for “Morning Joe,” which were really bad in the first place, just “tanked” with the release of the Mueller Report. Likewise, other shows on MSNBC and CNN have gone down by as much as 50%. Just shows, Fake News never wins!109K6:04 AM – Mar 28, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy49.5K people are talking about this

Maddow devoted virtually all of Monday’s show to what she’s calling the “Barr Report,” listing a series of questions she wanted to pose. About half of Tuesday’s show was on the investigation.

She hasn’t engaged her critics, but fellow MSNBC personality Joe Scarborough took them on in an angry monologue on Wednesday.

He wondered aloud what journalists were supposed to do for the past two years as stories piled up about Trump and associates misleading Americans about contacts to Russians. He said he wasn’t just unhappy about political critics, but also some in the media who are “hand-wringing” about the amount of coverage.

He criticized unnamed people who had “sold their soul to a personality cult.”

And he promised that MSNBC wouldn’t abandon the story.

“We’re not going to divert our eyes,” he said. “Damn the torpedoes. Full steam ahead. Follow the story where it leads us.”

“Have I therefore become your enemy by telling you the truth?”

For those people who don’t believe God exist and waste so much time trying to convince everyone else he doesn’t exist…

Justice is a word that stands alone, adding anything to it demeans it….

It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.
