In case you hadn’t heard, the Winter Olympics in South Korea are now underway (they started on Friday, but so far, TV ratings are way down from four years ago). It’s understandable, given the recent nuclear brinksmanship by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, that his sudden decision to send athletes, cheerleaders and his sister to the Olympics would receive major news coverage. But some of the coverage has ranged from baffling to sickening. Some of our Western news outlets are drooling over North Korea so much, they may be creating a slippage hazard for the ice skaters.

I know these biased outlets hate President Trump and would do anything to diminish his Administration, but when they actually celebrate the transparent propaganda tactics of the most brutally oppressive regime on Earth while denigrating the presence of our own Vice President and ignoring the father of Otto Warmbier, a young American who wasted away to death in a North Korean prison, and three other Americans who are still being held under God-knows-what conditions, they are taking journalistic malpractice to a new and deadly low.

Journalistic malpractice deepens

By Mike Huckabee

In case you hadn’t heard, the Winter Olympics in South Korea are now underway (they started on Friday, but so far, TV ratings are way down from four years ago). It’s understandable, given the recent nuclear brinksmanship by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, that his sudden decision to send athletes, cheerleaders and his sister to the Olympics would receive major news coverage. But some of the coverage has ranged from baffling to sickening. Some of our Western news outlets are drooling over North Korea so much, they may be creating a slippage hazard for the ice skaters.

I know these biased outlets hate President Trump and would do anything to diminish his Administration, but when they actually celebrate the transparent propaganda tactics of the most brutally oppressive regime on Earth while denigrating the presence of our own Vice President and ignoring the father of Otto Warmbier, a young American who wasted away to death in a North Korean prison, and three other Americans who are still being held under God-knows-what conditions, they are taking journalistic malpractice to a new and deadly low.

Media going gaga

By Mike Huckabee

Our media are going gaga over Kim Jong Un’s sister as if she’s the Kardashian of Korea and seem totally smitten with the team of pretty cheerleaders that Kim sent. In fact, it’s hard to tell who’s doing the most cheerleading for North Korea: its own cheerleaders or our media.

I wonder if these “journalists” ever ponder the similarity to the “Happy Corps,” a team of women (some of whom are reportedly kidnapped from their families at gunpoint by the military) who “entertain” Kim and are forced to act as concubines to him and other top male officials? Kudos to the media outlets who actually recalled the 2006 North Korean cheerleaders who were sent to a prison camp for talking about what they saw in South Korea. NBC went so far overboard in its idol worship for Boy Leader’s cheerleaders, they even tried to delete one of their tweets, but the Internet is forever.

Heading to Israel

By Mike Huckabee

The Israeli military shot down an Iranian drone that violated its airspace, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he’s spoken to Vladimir Putin about Israel’s intention to defend itself from Russia’s ally, Iran. He’s also called on the UN Security Council to denounce Iran’s incursion into Israel (good luck with that).

I am on the way to Israel today, where I will be filming a very special episode of “Huckabee” to air on TBN next weekend. My guests will include some top Israeli officials to talk about what’s really going on there. It’s a firsthand view that you’re not likely to get anywhere else, so set your DVRs.

Feel-good story

By Mike Huckabee

Feel-good story of the day: an 11-year-old Maryland girl who loves to cook wrote to the White House, offering to make a home-cooked meal for the President and First Lady. And since we now have a President who likes to reward enterprise and initiative, she just might get a chance to come meet the First Family and work alongside the White House chefs. It just goes to show: raise your kids right, and they might end up working at the White House one day.

RIP Vic Damone

By Mike Huckabee

Condolences today to the family, friends and many fans of singer Vic Damone, who died Sunday in Florida at 89. Damone’s smooth baritone crooning once prompted no less than Frank Sinatra to declare that he had “the best pipes in the business.” Even though he retired over a decade ago, his catalog of over 2,000 recorded songs is still winning new young fans, through his Facebook page and website.

One of his young fans is Michael Buble, who is continuing the Damone musical tradition. Damone praised his talent, but criticized him for smoking and drinking straight alcohol because it harms the vocal cords. Buble promised Damone that from now on, he would mix his alcohol with soda or orange juice. Although if he wants to live and sing as long as Vic Damone, maybe just drink orange juice.
