Should Parents Allow Teenagers To Have Sex At Home?

We hope you're logged in and ready to comment because we have a feeling this will get a lot of people talking!

The View's Elisabeth Hasselbeck ventured into VERY debatable territory with her most recent story for ABC's Good Morning America, in which she explored the question, "Should parents ALLOW their teenagers to have sex in their home?"

She interviewed a group of parents, as well as a group of teenagers between the ages 15 and 19, and those in favor or against the idea may surprise you!

Check out the video above, which explores the idea of allowing children to practice safe sex at home as opposed to secret sex with secret people elsewhere, and weigh in on the debate below!

Would U allow your teenagers to engage in sexual activity with their significant others behind closed doors in your house?

Conversely, did U grow up or currently live in a house where parents allow (or at least don't try to stop) sex? Also, would U even WANT to have sex anywhere NEAR your parents? LOLz!

Oscar Nominated Restrepo Co-Director Killed In Libya

restrepo co director tim hetherington killed in libya

Such a tragedy!

Less than two months after the Academy Awards ceremony, Oscar nominated Restrepo co-director Tim Hetherington has been killed in Libya while documenting fighting between Gaddafi's forces and rebels.

Along with Tim, Getty photographer Chris Hondros is in "extremely critical condition" following a severe brain injury from a mortar attack. Just awful! We hope he recovers.

Here's what ABC News' James Goldston had to say about Hetherington:

"Tim was one of the bravest photographers and filmmakers I have ever met. During his shooting for the Nightline specials he very seriously broke his leg on a night march out of a very isolated forward operating base that was under attack. He had the strength and character to walk for four hours through the night on his shattered ankle without complaint and under fire, enabling that whole team to reach safety."

Such a brave, fearless man whose work has impacted many, many lives. He will be missed.

Our thoughts go out to Tim's family, friends, and peers during this difficult time.

Wow. WOW.

Check out this clip (above) of an upcoming ABC News interview with Bat Shit Crazy Charlie Sheen where he admits to being on a drug "called Charlie Sheen."

He looks terrible and probably high pretty bad in the clip too… Like someone's been losing A LOT of sleep lately.

Part of us wants to see this train wreck and another part of us wants to turn our backs to this whole circus.

Yikes.

Sorry, Jay! Nightline's Got You Beat!

Filed under: TV NewsJay Leno

We think this speaks volumes about where the country is at right now.

For the first in history, ABC News' Nightline is #1 in total viewership for its fourth quarter, beating out its competition with 3.93 million viewers, on average.

As for Jay Leno, which airs at the same time slot, he only averaged 3.88, which is only slightly better than David Letterman, whose Late Show averaged 3.6 million in total viewers.

But back to Nightline. The news show's ratings were up 16% in total viewers, 15% in adults 25-54 and 14% in the adults 18-49 demo (1.27 million) compared to the previous quarter.

Marvelous! Good to know people are getting invested in the news again. There's a lot going on in the world and its important we all take note.

CBS' Early Show Cleans House

Filed under: TV NewsKatie CouricBusiness Blitz

cbs early show cleans house

CBS will ring in the new year with an almost entirely new Early Show crew.

Starting Jan 3, anchors Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez, and weatherman Dave Price will be gone from the show. According to CBS execs, they'll still be working for CBS News on-air…just on different programs.

Here's what CBS News had to say about Harry Smith's new role:

"[He] will shift his focus to hard news with an expanded role as primary substitute anchor on The Evening News with Katie Couric, Face the Nation and Sunday Morning while continuing to report major stories for all CBS News broadcasts."

And here's CBS News/Sports president Sean McManus on Harry, Maggie, and Dave's futures at CBS:

"We appreciate Harry, Maggie and Dave's countless contributions to The Early Show and are looking forward to the contributions they each will continue to make at CBS News."

The only member of the news team who will remain on The Early Show is Erica Hill, who will become a co-anchor with Chris Wragge.

Other new Early Show members include news reader Jeff Glor, who was an anchor on CBS Evening News' Saturday edition and weatherperson Marysol Castro, who was a weather/feature correspondent on ABC News' weekend edition of Good Morning America.

Guess we'll see how things play out with this new team. We'll be sorry to see the old team go, but we're glad to hear that none of them will be out of a job!

Thoughts???

Jesse James Still Whining Because Nobody Likes Him!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLove LineJesse James

jjwenn5448025__opt1.jpg

Sorry, Jesse James! Nobody thinks you're a monster - just a dumbass, a dickwad, and douchebag!

The moron is apparently up in arms because it makes him feel sad that nobody likes him anymore.

A source says:

"While Jesse seemed very anxious and stressed out about the interview, it was still very important for him to do. He is sick of people thinking of him as a monster. Jesse feels that he needs to get some credit for admitting his faults, and for trying to make a life change."

Yeah, except you DIDN'T. Sluts McGee blew your cover and now you're repenting!

We wonder how honest you would be about your faults if you weren't outed as a complete tool!

DOUCHE.
