NBC: Where the Real Comedy is Backstage

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

 Kate — wait a minute. Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I’m the one who lost his head. Something you said got me thinking. You said something about artistic freedom. Perhaps that’s important. Perhaps there’s a place in commercial television for quality. For intelligently conceived, well-acted, inventive programs, programs that aren’t written for the lowest common denominator. […]

Does There Have To Be a Winner?

Friday, April 17th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

The obligatory link to Britt McHenry and “The obligatory ‘ESPN reporter acts like an A-hole to parking attendant’ clip,” as Allahpundit described it yesterday at Hot Air: 1.

Hot Take from the New Republic: ‘Rolling Stone’s Rape Article Failed Because It Used Rightwing Tactics’

Monday, April 6th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

So just to confirm, the left have had a near-lock on Big Journalism since the days when Walter Cronkite and Daniel Schorr smeared Barry Goldwater as a crypto-Nazi on the air at CBS in 1964. And journalists such as Janet Cooke of the Washington Post, Jayson Blair of the New York Times, and ahem, Stephen Glass […]

What could go wrong? Pretty much everything, Forbes’ Erik Kain writes: One thing leads to another and pretty soon SVU has uncovered a Serious Terrorist Organization of some sorts, made up of gamers who can’t tell the difference between games and reality and want both women and social justice out of gaming.
