In Defense Of The Newsroom

In Defense Of The Newsroom

So The Newsroom had its final episode ever last night, and I’m sure a lot of you are thrilled about that. That’s right! I know a lot of you guys hate that show a whole lot, because the internet told me so every week, and that’s totally understandable!

Justin Bieber Choked Out Chris Brown This Weekend, But Unfortunately They Were Both Unharmed

Justin Bieber Choked Out Chris Brown This Weekend, But Unfortunately They Were Both Unharmed

Justin Bieber posted a photo to Instragram earlier this morning of himself choking Chris Brown, and for a brief and beautiful moment, I thought that they might have been involved in a duel that neither survived.

Kevin Hart Brilliantly Shuts Down Sony Executives Who Called Him A ‘Whore’

Kevin Hart Brilliantly Shuts Down Sony Executives Who Called Him A 'Whore'

I still haven’t entirely figured out where I land on the issue of this Sony hack, but what I do know is that things just keep looking worse and worse for that company. First the leaked personal communications insulted Angelina Jolie, then got racist about President Obama, and now they’re calling Kevin Hart a ‘whore’. Which he’s understandably not that psyched about. More »
