CBS analyst and former Knicks guard, Greg Anthony has been arrested following a solicitation charge
A very familiar voice of college basketball and CBS analyst, Greg Anthony was booked in the District of Colombia last night and charged with soliciting a prostitute. The former Knicks guard was scheduled to call today’s Big-10 game between Michigan State and Maryland in College Park, Maryland. Anthony faces a misdemeanor solicitation charge that’s punishable by up to 180 days in jail. Although Anthony was quickly released late last night, no further details have surfaced. A CBS spokeswoman shared her feelings on the situation:
“Greg Anthony will not be working again for CBS this season.”
The FBI warns that the announcement of the grand jury’s decision “will likely be exploited by some individuals to justify threats and attacks against law enforcement and critical infrastructure,” according to the bulletin
The FBI has issued an intelligence bulletin to state and local partners urging them to be aware of the potential for violent protests after the Ferguson, Missouri grand jury issues its decision on whether or not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown. That decision is expected in the next week or so.
The bulletin, which went out last Friday, is not based on intelligence or specific threats, but rather on “observed criminal and violent activity” in the weeks after Brown’s death, a law enforcement official told CBS News’ Bob Orr.
Wait. If the FBI have observed criminal and violent activity from protesters, that would make it intelligence.
The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) have also been observed, and no memorandum or warning was released by federal or state officials against them, so it seems as if state and federal agents are trying to instigate or incite the situation in Ferguson further.
“Internet postings have called for violence against police,” noted the official who told CBS News about the bulletin, calling the alter to law enforcement officers a “common sense” move taken out of an abundance of caution.
On Sunday, protesters braved the cold and snow on the streets of St. Louis lying down in chalk outlines of bodies and blocking traffic to commemorate 100 days since Brown’s death. Demonstrators also targeted downtown Clayton on Monday, blocking traffic at several intersections before marching to the county Justice Center. That’s where the grand jury has been meeting behind closed doors since late August. No arrests were reported.
The protests are a far cry from the turmoil that shook this city and the nation only months ago, and there’s fear that violence could resurface as a grand jury decides whether to indict the officer responsible for shooting the unarmed teen.
Last week Rihanna’s performance of her Kanye West & Jay Z assisted song “Run This Town” and accompanying comedy skit on CBS’s Thursday Night Football was removed. In light of the Ray Rice incident CBS decided that the segment didnt fit the feel of their hourlong pre game show that dealt heavily with the issue of domestic violence. The subtext was that Rihanna is very well known for her own run in’s with domestic violence dating back to the 2009 incident with Chris Brown, and that most likely is what led to the decision to remove the Billboard toping singer from the broadcast.
Rihanna has weighed in on the move, and the subsequent intentions of CBS to now this week use the song on their broadcast.
CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, Fuck you! Y’all are sad for penalizing me for this.
You go girl. I mean seriously, this is BS of the highest order and it’s good to hear someone sticking up for themselves when their comments could end up hurting their pockets. It’s unsure whether she has the power to stop the airing at this point but we will keep you posted.
Last week, the comedy world was shocked by David Letterman’s suddenly announcing his retirement from Late Night with David Letterman. Well, there is a new surprise that will hit just as hard: his replacement has already been decided and it will be Stephen Colbert. Known for his successful tenure on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart and his own show The Colbert Report. He was predicted to be on the short list of possible candidates, but he just signed a five year deal starting sometime in 2015 after Letterman’s officially retires.
“Stephen is a multi-talented and respected host, writer, producer, satirist and comedian who blazes a trail of thought-provoking conversation, humor and innovation with everything he touches,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment. ”He is a presence on every stage, with interests and notable accomplishments across a wide spectrum of entertainment, politics, publishing and music. We welcome Stephen to CBS with great pride and excitement, and look forward to introducing him to our network television viewers in late night.” via CBS
We are very excited with this development, and we are predicting great things from the show. Keep your eyes on the Source for more information coming soon.
As the countdown to Super Bowl XLVII continues, tomorrow’s games will determine which two NFL teams will square off on February 2nd. The first contender will be declared in the AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos. The quarterback match-up here between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning is in itself somewhat of a Super Bowl contest.
This game will mark the 15th time that the two face each other in their tenured careers. Brady is one of only two players in the league’s history to win both the NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP awards multiple times while Manning’s four NFL MVP awards are also a league record. Yet records aside, this elite quarterback showdown has been owned by Brady’s Patriots who’ve won 10 of the last 14 meetings against a Manning-led team. But tomorrow will be the first time Brady goes up against Manning in Denver. Many believe this will be the last time they face off, suspecting that Manning may not have much time life in his career since returning to play this season with a surgically-repaired neck. The verdict is still out there but in case this is Manning’s final coin toss, this game will be nothing short of epic. Watch it live on CBS channel 2 at 3 p.m.
