First Lady Michelle Obama Is Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Big Help Winner

Posted by: Audiegrl

AP~First lady Michelle Obama is getting attention from the Nickelodeon kids’ television network – and it has nothing to do with green slime.

Nickelodeon said Thursday it will honor Mrs. Obama with its “Big Help” award at the Kids’ Choice Awards. She has taped a message for Saturday’s show.

She is being honored for her Let’s Movecampaign to help cut down on childhood obesity.

Nick has been working with Mrs. Obama on the campaign. It has donated $3 million to school and after-school programs to create opportunities for physical play. Nickelodeon executive Marva Smalls says that with Mrs. Obama’s activity, forces are aligning not just to place blame but to move forward.


In addition, President Obama and First Lady Michelle have been nominated in the category of “Cutest Couple”. But they are up against some steep competition in this category 😉

Dylan Ratigan tells guest: “Coming on television and lying is not journalism…”

“…nor is it actually beneficial to the country”

Morning Meeting with Dylan RatiganOn yesterday’s Morning Meeting, host Dylan Ratigan’s guest were President of NARAL Pro-Choice America’s Nancy Keenan and Family Research Council’s Cathy Ruse. They had a discussion on how the controversial abortion amendment may stop the health reform bill in its tracks.

When Ms. Ruse starting using her false talking points, Ratigan stopped her in her tracks. Wow. I could certainly get used to this. A pundit stopping a guest from telling blatant lies on television. Hopefully he will start a trend.
