Did Sarah Silverman Fake Her Story for Wage Discrimination Video?

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015 - by Scott Ott

I should have known. Just this morning, I praised lefty standup comic Sarah Silverman for a new video where she encourages underpaid women to “ask for more.” It’s the perfect free-market antidote to perceptions of unequal pay. In the video, from the Levo League, Silverman tells of a male comic being paid six times what she […]

WATCH: Edward Snowden Gets Called on the Carpet by Fake Journalist

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

John Oliver, HBO’s own version of Jon Stewart who hosts This Week with John Oliver (yes, HBO’s version of The Daily Show) managed to finally nail Edward Snowden to the carpet. Unlike every other journalist who treats Snowden as a modern day prophet, Oliver confronts the former NSA contractor for what he truly is: A computer geek […]

Sculptor of Frightening Lucille Ball Statue Apologizes, Promises to Fix It

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

Michael Walsh told you about this unfortunate piece of art last week. Now it seems the sculptor feels exactly the same way. The sculptor responsible for the “frightening” Lucille Ball statue that’s been terrorizing local residents is now offering to fix it for free, admitting it is “by far my most unsettling sculpture.” In a […]

WATCH: SNL Puts Sweet Ending on HBO’s Disturbing Scientology Doc

Monday, April 6th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

After the mind-warp that was Going Clear, HBO’s scathingly detailed examination of the Church of Scientology, you’ll need a really good laugh to recover your sanity. Check out this past weekend’s SNL spoof of the Church of Scientology’s now-infamous ’90s music video. Then remind yourself that the “religion” of Scientology is nothing more than the culmination of […]

Good News for a Troubled World: SkyMall Might Relaunch

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

The sun may shine again: In January, SkyMall LLC and its parent company, Xhibit Corp., filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, with some $50 million in liabilities. The company’s assets were set to go up for auction in late March. The news led to a strong show of support for the in-flight catalog. On Friday, a company […]

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 - by The Tatler

Actor Sean Penn told the Daily Telegraph that he watches the ISIS beheading videos because “we are not seeing enough of real violence.” Penn spoke to the Telegraph for the premier of his new film The Gunman, which is about a special forces sniper.

Friday, March 20th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

From The Hollywood Reporter: Armando Iannucci, the British comic and satirist behind Emmy-winning HBO show Veep and its U.K. predecessor The Thick of It, has revealed that his next project will see him move into previously unchartered cinematic territories. “It’s a sort of comedy about the death of Stalin,” he told an audience at London’s […]

Mozilla Quickly Removes Feminazi-Themed App from Site

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

http://t.co/0VdBfi4zs4 “They called us nazis, what do we do?” “Ban their ability to make fun of or criticize us.” “That’ll show ‘em!” — Kevin Alfred Mastron (@ShamefulHipster) March 17, 2015 Mozilla acted quickly to remove a hilariously controversial app, Men Kampf, from its site out of fear of radical feminist retribution.

The same day as the re-opening of the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket in Paris, Israeli music artist Gad Elbaz released an English-language music video shot in the Jewish section of Paris. Dubbed by the Jewish Standard as “a fully remixed and re-imagined version of Hava Nagila – an early Zionist call to optimism,” the video […]

Kathy Griffin Ducks Behind ‘Gays and People of Color’ as she Runs from the Fashion Police

Friday, March 13th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Let’s be clear about one thing: The only time Kathy Griffin shows up anywhere is when her fellow D-lister Andy Dick is unavailable. And apparently even Andy Dick didn’t want to touch the hot mess that is Fashion Police in the wake of Joan Rivers’ untimely death. The chaos began when the Empress of E! Giuliana […]

Parents Everywhere Are Really Going to Hate What President Obama Told Jimmy Kimmel

Thursday, March 12th, 2015 - by Paula Bolyard

Jimmy Kimmel asked President Obama on Thursday night if he planned to get rid of daylight-saving Time. “Will you get rid of the part where we have to wake up earlier?” Kimmel asked the president. “You can leave the other one,” he said. “See, this is a California thing, because you guys are always getting […]

Is the Obama-Jarrett Duo Behind Hillary Clinton’s Email Scandal?

Thursday, March 12th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Soviet leaders just killed their enemies and told the world they went on extended vacations. American politicians prefer more Dallas-like drama — the Democrats do anyway. The latest accusation in the Hillary Clinton email scandal comes from Ed Klein’s “sources inside the White House” who claim the most powerful duo since Batman and Robin, Barack Obama […]

Comedian Sarah Silverman Jumps Into Israeli Elections

If you don’t vote, you can’t complain — Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) March 11, 2015 Comedian Sarah Silverman is politicking again, this time for Israel’s Meretz Party ahead of the contentious March 17 elections. A fairly typical Left-wing party, Meretz […]

VIDEO: The Holocaust Survivor Band Takes Vegas by Storm

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

The New York Times reports: Like many survivors of the Holocaust, after World War II, Saul Dreier and Reuwen (“Ruby”) Sosnowicz moved to America, started families and careers, grew old, and retired to Florida. For these octogenarians, settling near Boca Raton could have been the last chapter in their story. But then, last summer, Mr. […]

For the ‘Right’ Kind of Women: A Holster Fashion Show

Thursday, March 5th, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

You work hard: If you’re looking for a way to introduce more women to the concept of shooting a firearm and carrying concealed, you might consider hosting a holster fashion show, which, as we found last weekend at the Firearm and Fashion Expo in Branson, Mo., appeared to be a great way to educate and […]

Dakota Johnson Joins ISIS on Saturday Night Live

Monday, March 2nd, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

SNL did a spoof of the Toyota Camry commercial involving a proud father taking his daughter to meet up with fellow military recruits at the airport. In the SNL version, 50 Shades star Dakota Johnson played the daughter who, this time, joined ISIS. I could get all uptight over this, but I’m not. The entire sketch played […]

Friday, February 27th, 2015 - by Michael Walsh

Up and out: Fox News host Greg Gutfeld will be developing a new weekend program for the cable news network with a bit of an edge to it, with a “whimsical nature and political satire.” Fox announced the new show for Gutfeld, currently in development, in a press release today. Fox News EVP of Programming […]

Farewell to the Shrink’s Couch…

Monday, February 23rd, 2015 - by Michael Walsh

… and perhaps to the nation’s unaccountable love affair with Viennese Voodoo: The couches have gone cold on the Upper West Side. Lying down and talking to a psychoanalyst, a practice once as synonymous with New York City as the street-vendor hot dog, has fallen out of favor thanks to shifting fads, pharmaceuticals and the […]

‘Zionazi’: BDS Supporters Hate on Oscars Star Lady Gaga

Monday, February 23rd, 2015 - by Bridget Johnson

If you weathered the Academy Awards last night, you may have been pleasantly jolted out of your seat by Lady Gaga’s pitch-perfect tribute for the 50th anniversary of The Sound of Music. After Gaga belted out her medley of the musical’s numbers in an uncharacteristically conservative chiffon gown, none other than Julie Andrews came out […]

‘Snowden Could Not be Here Tonight for Some Treason’

Monday, February 23rd, 2015 - by Bridget Johnson

Who knew Edward Snowden would, in a matter of speaking, take home an Oscar for leaking information from the NSA? Citizenfour, the story of Snowden’s leaks, won best full-length documentary at the Oscars last night. Accepting the award were director Laura Poitras, journalist Glenn Greenwald, and Snowden’s girlfriend, Lindsay Mills. Snowden, who was granted three […]

Hollywood’s Rich & Famous Trumpet Wage Inequality

Monday, February 23rd, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

By the time most folks at home had passed out from boredom, or gone to bed because they have real jobs to wake up for on Monday morning, Patricia Arquette sobered up enough to use her Best Supporting Actress win to preach to the choir about wage inequality. Snort, blink, roll over, resume snooze. The […]

‘My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me’

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015 - by Michael Walsh

This story broke a couple of weeks ago, but it’s worth a read. File under: you can’t choose your ancestors: In the mid-1990s, near the end of the period during which she lived in Israel, Jennifer Teege watched Steven Spielberg’s film “Schindler’s List.” She hadn’t seen the film in a movie theater, and watched it […]

The Real Reason Conservative TV Died in Canada

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015 - by Kathy Shaidle

Last week, I told you the sad news: The Sun News Network, Canada’s only conservative/libertarian alternative to the state-sponsored Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and other equally liberal TV channels, went off the air after four years. Because the media’s favorite topic is “the media,” you can imagine the avalanche of “analysis” that followed, from Canada’s […]

Leslie Gore, R.I.P.

Monday, February 16th, 2015 - by Kathy Shaidle

I always said I’d never get married, but that if I did, I’d walk down the aisle to Leslie Gore’s recording of “You Don’t Own Me.” Well, time marches on. I got married after all, the Las Vegas chapel didn’t have much of an aisle to speak of, and now I’m hearing that the queen […]

Hollywood Heresy: In The Kingsman a Climate-Change Believer Villain Plots The Final Solution

Monday, February 16th, 2015 - by Scott Ott

The only way to save the planet is to cull the herd of humanity. That’s the threat facing a band of super-secret modern-day British knights in The Kingsman, an epic parody/tribute to (old) James Bond movies. I’m not going to review the film, just note this: Despite its over-the-top brutal comedic violence, and dialog brought […]

Lies and Redemption Fuel a Grammys Bent on Sex

Monday, February 9th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Oh for the days when music was about music. Perhaps that hasn’t truly existed since the pioneers strummed banjos on their front porches, but hey we can dream. Anything is better than the farce dished out at this year’s Grammy Awards by the likes of sinner-turned-saints Katy Perry and Queen Bey and the Grand Poobah […]

King Abdullah Vows to Go Full Clint Eastwood on ISIS

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015 - by Bridget Johnson

Jordan’s King Abdullah has vowed to go all Clint Eastwood on the Islamic State. Abdullah met with lawmakers on the Hill yesterday, after ISIS released its gruesome video of the fiery murder of air force 1st Lt. Muath al-Kasaesbeh. The king was in town for a week; yesterday morning the U.S. and  U.S.-Jordan signed a […]

The Science Is Settled: Super Bowl XLIX Ads Were Horrible

Monday, February 2nd, 2015 - by Stephen Kruiser

So it wasn’t just me… It was one of the most memorable Super Bowls of all time but, in terms of the commercials, it was more like a blowout that was over by halftime. “There were some of the worst Super Bowl ads I’ve ever seen – that really missed badly,” said David Steinberg, CEO […]

Feminist Mother Questions, Praises Her Ability to Indoctrinate ‘Princess’ Daughter

Monday, February 2nd, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Over at the New York Times, gender feminist Sally Kohn chronicles her recent experience taking her five-year-old, princess-obsessed daughter to Disney World for her birthday. To read her account of the event, you’d presume the mother would’ve rather experienced a root canal without anesthesia than be forced to spend quality time celebrating her daughter’s birth. […]

Adam Carolla + Dennis Miller = The Next Great Comedy Podcast?

Monday, February 2nd, 2015 - by Kathy Shaidle

Regular readers already know I’m a “Carolla-tard” (as Marc Maron dubbed us). And I’ve written elsewhere that downloads of Dennis Miller’s radio show helped me survive my last cubicle job. So I’m primed to enjoy a podcast co-hosted by both comedians. Their new weekly “PO’d Cast” just debuted on PodcastOne. The podcast is already #2 […]

VIDEO: Maddow & Letterman Disgusted By Obama’s ‘Creepy’ Embrace of the Saudi Slave State

Monday, February 2nd, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Hat Tip: Grabien When it comes to our relationship with the Islamic world, even well-known liberals are starting to wonder what the Obama administration is trying to get at. During a recent appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, MSNBC pundit Rachel Maddow chatted with the renowned host on the state visit to honor the […]

‘Bold Talk for a Two-Eyed Fat Man’

Monday, January 19th, 2015 - by Michael Walsh

To paraphrase Lucky Ned Pepper at the end of True Grit. Here’s the story: The Palme d’Or-winning director of the highest-grossing documentary ever has made it very clear today he does not like the Clint Eastwood-helmed Oscar nominee nor its subject, Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. In a tweet Sunday, Fahrenheit 9/11 and former AMPAS Governor Michael […]
