Phil Robertson to “Reject Political Correctness,” Anchor New Show

About a year after Duck Dynasty went off the air, Phil Robertson is set to make his return to the small screen.

But he isn’t plotting his comeback by himself.

He’s bringing his firestorm of controversial opinions with him!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the reality star some have dubbed Redneck Dumbledore has landed his own show on CRTV.

This is a $ 99-a-year digital network whose most popular programs are hosted by conservative commentators Mark Levin, Steven Crowder and Michelle Malkin.

Robertson’s series will be titled In the Woods With Phil and he explains why in a sneak peek from one of the installments.

“What does a man do when they try to run him out of town for quoting a Bible verse?” Robertson asks. “I tell you what he does; he goes deep in the woods.

Robertson, of course, has quite a history of speaking his mind.

The ex-Duck Dynasty patriarch was suspended by A&E in 2013 for making rather strong anti-gay comments.

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there,” he told GQ a few years ago, adding at the time:

“Beastiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.”

He then paraphrased a Bible passage and also said the following:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s anus, that’s just me.

“I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying?

“But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Regarding his upcoming show, Robertson says that he plans on rejecting “political correctness,” explaining:

“For far too long we have been told to shut up. No more. Here’s the deal, America. These are my woods. Out here, I call the shots.

“Out here, we reject political correctness, or as I like to say, ‘pontificated crap’.”

When we last heard from Robertson, he was slamming Miley Cyrus and The Discovery Channel.

“America is floundering in sin,” he said in May of last year, citing Miley as someone who promotes “decadence” and who is ruining this country.

Robertson will provide a preview of his show on Friday at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, where speakers include President Donald Trump and his former White House adviser, Steve Bannon.

“Our culture and values are being overrun and progressives are hell bent on purging traditional values from media,” says CRTV senior vp Gaston Mooney. “Phil is a Christian and CRTV is proud to have him proclaim from our platform.”

Anchor Learns of Husband’s Death On Air, Completes Report

Supreet Kaur, an anchor for Indian news network IBC24, went viral over the weekend for the most tragic of reasons.

While listening to a reporter detail a two-vehicle crash in the region that featured two injuries and three fatalities, Kaur realized that her husband of 18 months, Harshad Kawade, was very likely one of the victims.

She knew the car he was driving that day and the area through which he was headed.

Somehow, though, the 28-year old journalist finished with the hour-long broadcast and only broke down after walking out of the TV studio, according to The Hindustan Times.

"She got a sense that it was her husband's vehicle," a senior editor told the newspaper, adding:

"She read the bulletin and only when she came out of the studio, she started calling her relatives."

The editor added that Kaur’s colleagues had learned during the broadcast that Kaur's husband as dead "but we did not tell her. We did not have the courage."

Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh Raman Singh tweeted about Kaur soon after this report concluded, writing online:

"Salute Supreet's strength in dealing with her husband's demise with extraordinary bravery and professionalism. May departed soul rest in peace."

The death of her husband was confirmed shortly after Kaur got up from her desk.

"She is an extremely brave lady," a colleague told the aforementioned publication.

News Anchor Feeds Colleagues Special Dip, Mass Vomiting Nearly Ensues

Leslie Horton, Global News Calgary news anchor, probably didn't expect to be at the butt of a viral internet joke this morning.

Horton's artichoke dip, which she made for a holiday party and brought in for her coworkers to taste on the morning segment, was terrible — and was sadly sampled on-air. 

The other news anchors could barely keep their composure over how terrible the dip actually was. 

When she described the dip, and the back story behind how she had to bring it to a family gathering, one of the anchors said, "It smells like a barn." 

Meterologist Jordan Witzel bravely tried the dip first, gagged and said, "It's the vinegar," to which Horton responded, "But there's no vinegar in there!" 

"I can't swallow it!" he announced, as he spit it out in tissue paper and said, "I'm not trying to be rude here!" 

For Horton's part, all she could do was laugh. 

"It's artichoke dip," she said, "but something terribly went wrong." 

The anchors attempted as best as they could to put on professional faces while they discussed the dip, trying to figure out just went wrong, but it wasn't until later that Witzel, the meteorologist, discerned what had gone awry. 

"We figured it out," he tweeted. "She used pickled artichokes from a jar instead of fresh chopped artichokes."  

That'll get you every time … and as for poor Leslie Horton, perhaps she should just stop trying to cook. 

When you pickle anything, really, it's done in vinegar … and any chef worth their weight in artichokes would probably know that. 

Later, Horton talked about the disastrous recipe and said, "I’m so glad my cooking fail brought a smile to so many faces."

"It was just another kitchen experiment gone wrong for me, but this time my co-workers were unfortunately subject to my free-wheeling in the kitchen." 

She even admitted that her cooking skills leave a lot to be desired.

“I am a terrible cook."

"I could create a cookbook with all the recipes and dishes I have ruined. I need to stop improvising in the kitchen but I keep trying," she said. 

See the hilarious video below and we dare you to keep a straight face — just try!
