Jerrie Williams is a blogger on the Beauregard Daily News website. The name of her blog is C.O.P.E. Community Organized Parents in Education. This blog is syndicated statewide to all GateHouse websites. She will not only be blogging about local education concerns, but information about resources for parental research on different subjects concerning children and their well being. Jerrie Williams is the mother of three autistic children. Her journey began in 1999, when she discovered that her children were not developing according to the national mind stone charts. This was after they had received immunizations and developed reactions to them. She later learned the immunizations contained an agent that her children were allergic to, which led to their developmental delays. She moved her children to Georgia to be treated by a specialist in autism and brain injury in 2000. Since then she has been searching and discovering several research-based interventions and resources to educate, support and assist in the recovery of autism. She moved to Louisiana in August, 2011, and has been involved in educating the community about autism and the resources available to parents of autistic children as well as adults with autism. She has been instrumental in helping the Beauregard Parish school system to design an individualized curriculum that was suited for the educational needs of her children as well as other special needs children. Her children have since blossomed with this curriculum and continue to thrive. She will continue in her journey as a mother and an advocate for others.
Karl Rove may not be appearing on Fox News anytime soon.
Rove and Dick Morris, two pro-Mitt Romney political pundits who were part of Fox News' anti-Obama campaign, have reportedly been benched from appearing on Fox News' programming, according to New York Magazine.
Fox News chief Roger Ailes has allegedly put in place a new rule mandating that producers have to get permission from higher-ups before booking either of the outspoken pundits.
Rove's election night outburst probably didn't help his case. After multiple networks, including Fox News, called the all-important swing state of Ohio and thus the election for President Obama, Rove tried to argue that the outcome was still up in the air using math to support his point. Insisting that the projection was premature, the former advisor to George W. Bush spouted off numbers about rural areas whose votes hadn't yet been tallied, prompting co-anchor Megyn Kelly to ask: "Is this just math that you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better?" Rove was so relentless that Kelly awkwardly walked off set to ask the number-crunchers to back up their conclusion to Rove, who still wasn't satisfied afterward. For the record, Obama would've won even without Ohio.
Do you think Fox News should continue using Rove and Morris as pundits? Or should the network distance itself from them?
