'Reliable Sources:' January 25, 2015

Watch all the stories from Sunday's show:

Should the news media name the perpetrators of mass shootings and show their faces? The parents of two Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting victims say no. Tom and Caren Teves and Lonnie and Sandy Phillips explain their new campaign called 'No Notoriety.'

What should we believe about #DeflateGate? Former NFL players Chris Kluwe and Tim Green talk about what's at stake and how the current controversy arguably distracts from more serious scandals.

Is the media over-inflating the Patriots football story? L.Z. Granderson and Chris Villani weigh in.

How seriously should the political press take potential 2016 presidential candidates like Donald Trump and Sarah Palin? CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and The Washington Post's Robert Costa have two different answers.

"American Sniper keeps breaking box office records - and keeps generating controversy about the real-life story of Chris Kyle. Are movies supposed to be reliable sources? Veterans Paul Rieckhoff and Jonathan Gilliam say no - and they call the movie an important conversation-starter about the Iraq War.

Earlier this week, Amazon Studios revealed a plan to make or acquire a dozen original movies a year. In his first interview since the announcement, Amazon Studios chief Roy Price calls it a "middle ground" between traditional theatrical and all-digital movie releases.

    My passion for love and life has made me to take to the internet to
    warn internet users particularly those in search of solution to their
    problems to beware of and avoid comments about spell caster that can
    use their magical power in helping you out with your problems. i don't
    want anyone to be fooled because i was a victim of this fraudsters
    who claimed to be spell casters. i am jennifer mills and i was having
    a difficult time in my relationship as i couldn't give birth to a
    child. Although my husband loved me very much as it were,we kept on
    hoping and for 6years there weren't any sign of breakthrough .As days
    goes by,i will always weep because at that time i was really down.
    Even though my husband tried to always be by my side,only time would
    tell as he couldn't cope with pressure from friends and had to leave
    me for another lady. i was now left to face my problem alone even
    though my mom would always talk to me and console me on phone. Things
    went from bad to worse when i was sacked from the private organization
    i was working because been happily married was a criteria that was
    needed and that i was now lacking owing to my barrenness that made my
    husband leave me for another lady leaving me single. I kept on
    searching and hoping i would find a solution to my problem but there
    wasn't any coming. I contacted lots of spell caster as i saw them on
    the internet but all were scams as they demanded money from me
    frequently and nothing happened. i had to relocate from Texas city
    United state to Jamaica where my mom was residing and also because i
    became racially abused because of my color .I spent 4 months with my
    mom and together we kept on looking for solution,still to no avail.
    There came a faithful day when i met my high school mate who knew i
    was happily married and living in Texas city United state with my
    husband and had to ask why i flew back to Jamaica. I explained my
    problem to her and with sincere desire in wanting my problems solved
    she led me to DR JAMIN ABAYOMI. Although i was doubtful but soon as i
    explained my problem to him,he laughed and gave me a maximum of
    72hours for my husband to come back and for me to become pregnant. I
    did all i was asked to do which included me traveling back to Texas
    city United state. I traveled back to Texas city united state,on my
    arrival during the early hours of the morning,my phone rang and guess
    who?it was my husband who called asking for my forgiveness and saying
    he was coming back home. He came few hours later and on his knees he
    pleaded for forgiveness. Although it was a tough decision for me to
    make because of all the pains i have been through. I love him and
    needed him back so i had no option but to forgive him. we sat together
    and while i was resting my head on his chest we had romantic
    conversation and talked about things that we have never spoken about
    and like husband and wife the urge came to have sex and we had sex for
    a very long time that day. The next day which was still within the
    72hours given by DOCTOR JAMIN ABAYOMI i felt something different in my
    body and immediately i went for a check up and to my greatest
    surprise,i was pregnant. How possible could this be but it happened
    and am very thankful also my skin color that made me racially abused
    was changed to the preferred and know we are now happily married again
    and no racially discrimination. All thanks to DR JAMIN ABAYOMI for his
    THAT DR JAMIN ABAYOMI isn't on the internet so kindly contact him via

    Please explain your post "it was not meant for men to direct their own steps". Every person is responsible for their own actions, including their steps. If that were not the case, every wrongdoing done by mankind could easily be dismissed by "the devil made me do it." Which we all know is a total cop out.

    The character you mentioned in a previous post on this site. Idk his name and have never heard of him until you mentioned him then. And for the most part MEN cheat! Its what they do best it seems! Very few do not.

        That's not what she said at all. I see you still lack the ability to read the written word and proceed what it actually says instead of what you searched in between the lines wishing said...if you read this post, not once was the word "American" mentioned.

        This is a real conversation ender. You may want to take done remedial reading classes.

    And didnt you say Bush was in business with Bin Laden? And now youre saying its this other character? I am in no mood to argue with you about the past. Ya cant change the past only the future. And neither Paiin nor Trump are our answer for the future. Nor is Ted Cruz who isnt even a naturalized citizen of the US so i still havent figured out HOW hes able to have any government office!

      No human is the answer to mankind's difficulties, Chrissy. It was not meant for men to direct their own steps, says The Word. Let alone the steps of other men. And women and children.

    ALL men cheat! Its how he did his job thats important to me! I just told you i raised 5 kids on my own...no child support, no public assistance, no food stamps and had anyone else been POTUS i wouldnt have been able too! Thats WHAT was important to me! Feeding my kids and putting a roof over their head!!!

      All men do not cheat, Chrissy. Just men who are addicted to extra se x like Billy Clinton.
      And what other character in cahoots with Bush doing 9/11 are you referring to. According to FBI and DoD investigations that are still kept secret "for reasons of national security" the Bush and Bin Laden families formed an investment group ...The Carlyle Group...and did in fact finance 9/11. Who else did you think was in on it besides what TV told you?

      Not all men, Chrissy. My husband has never cheated on me.

      But them you have said that I married the last good one. But even that isn't 100% true; my older daughter has a very good man in her life, and I'm hoping my younger one will follow suit.

      Although I do agree with BC doing a good job of running the country. His sex life is something else completely. Although I know we're both smart enough not to conflate the two.

    Whatever! All i know is i would not have been able to support my children had it not been for the economy during his term as POTUS! I wasnt recieving help anywhere else so for that reason i have nothing bad to say about him. Sorry if that dont mesh with your ideas.

    Gotta disagree on Hillary Clinton. Of all candidates presented thus far she is more qualified than all of them together! God foaid we get another Bush in office. Especially THAT one. Florida still hasnt recovered from his time as governor. And as far as Christie hes just a disaster lookin for a place to happen!

      Bill Clinton was recruited into the CIA by then-director George HW Bush. And after he and his crooked wife made Arkansas one of the poorest States on earth, Billy went to work for Bush-Zapata brokering illegal oil deals between Bush-Zapata and Japan ese industrialist whereby Japan would buy cheap Bush-owned Kuwaiti oil that had been legally supplied by Iraqi oil men.
      About 60% of Iraq's economy depended on oil sales stolen by Bush-Zapata.

    Bill Clinton's best achievement was when he just happened to be president when the US government came out from under International Bankruptcy Protection on Nov. 7, 1999. Snoopy could have been president and the economy would have still boomed.

      I agree. And the same thing could be said for doormat housewife Hillary and her cheating ways husband Billy. As if a man cheating on the First Lady is faithful to his country or position in it.
      And not to mention Whitewater Clinton land scamming.
