  • Samantha Bee launches a scathing, yet impressively stupid, attack on Prager U

    Samantha Bee got her start on the Jon Stewart show. She is a worthy heir, for she’s mastered his techniques of pretending that snarky, fact-free comments about conservatives constitute news or astute political analysis. On Wednesday, Bee spent almost seven minutes hurling insults at Dennis Prager, at Prager U, and at the people who have appeared in Prager U videos. It’s clear that the people behind the show are panicking about how effectively the Prager U videos counter the leftist narrative that’s mainlined into the American brain through academia, “news,” and entertainment media. In fact, progressives are right to panic....

    Bumble Bee Foods—which along with StarKist and Chicken of the Sea is one of America's largest canned tuna brands—filed for bankruptcy on Thursday and plans to sell its business to the Taiwanese seafood company FCF Fishery. The sale should conclude what has been a wild ride for Bumble Bee since 2015 when a previous sale attempt revealed a massive price-fixing scheme across the entire U.S. tuna industry. But for consumers, store shelves should remain normal despite all the chaos behind the scenes. Though the Department of Justice had long appeared concerned about price fixing in the canned tuna market, things...

    NEW YORK, NY—After Lawrence O'Donnell admitted to publishing a sensational, world-altering, but also totally fake story about Trump's finances and Russia, MSNBC confessed that it simply makes up all its reports about Trump using the patented Mad Libs system of making up random words and sticking them in blanks in pre-written sentences. The station's reporters sit around a conference table with a big Mad Libs story displayed on a large sheet of paper or whiteboard. Then they all take turns shouting out funny verbs, adjectives, people, places, and adverbs in order to make up a story about Donald Trump to...
  • Back from the dead: World’s biggest bee, thought to be extinct for decades, found in Indonesia

    A giant wasp-like insect with the face of a stag beetle was just re-discovered by a wildlife photographer on an unspecified island in Indonesia. The insect hadn’t been spotted since 1981 and was thought to be extinct for decades. The insect is known as Wallace’s giant bee, named after the British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace, who discovered the winged insect in 1858. The giant black insect has immense jaws and looks like a stag beetle. It is the size of an adult thumb – four times larger than the European honeybee. The bee has a two and half inch wing...

    Bee populations are under threat around the world, but one house in Spain apparently provided the perfect conditions for a huge hive. A couple in the historic southern city of Granada, in Andalusia, had been troubled by a strange buzzing noise in their house for some time -- and when things got so bad they couldn't sleep at night, they decided to take action. Beekeeper Sergio Guerrero told CNN the couple had first noticed bees at their property around a year ago, but no one from the police, firefighters or the local council had been able to help. When temperatures...

    THE WORLD’S LARGEST bee may also be the planet’s most elusive. First discovered in 1859 by the prominent scientist Alfred Russel Wallace, nobody could locate it again, and it was presumed extinct. But Wallace’s giant bee (Megachile pluto) was not gone. In 1981, an entomologist named Adam Messer searched and found it on three islands in Indonesia, on an archipelago called the North Moluccas. He collected a specimen and wrote about his discovery in 1984. Now, for the first time, it has been photographed and filmed alive in the wild, by a team including nature photographer Clay Bolt. Meanwhile, in...

    A new report shows Samantha Bee's late night show "Full Frontal" hasn't been able to regain its advertisers after the host attacked Ivanka Trump in May. The liberal comedian came under fire when she used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue on May 30 over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media. "You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child...But let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad's immigration practices, you feckless c---. He listens to you," Bee said. Bee apologized on a June 6...

    Comedienne Samantha Bee has reportedly lost more than two-thirds of her advertisers since she called first daughter Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t.” Last week, Bee said on her TBS show “Full Frontal” that Ivanka Trump is a “feckless ***t” for not opposing her father’s policies on immigration and migrant children. Bee apologized for the comments on her show Wednesday night but did not offer a direct apology to Ivanka Trump and seemed to blame the media for focusing so much on her “potty-mouth.” (RELATED: Samantha Bee Scapegoats Media In On-Air Apology: ‘Sorry For Breaking America’) According to Newsbusters, there were...

    TBS is expected to increase network oversight on Samantha Bee’s show after the comedian drew scrutiny last week for making a vulgar comment about Ivanka Trump. A source told The Hollywood Reporter that network management will work with Bee and the crew on her show “Full Frontal” to prevent future incidents that could alienate advertisers or spark backlash. The comedian sparked a firestorm last week when she called Trump a "feckless c---" during a segment on her show about the Trump administration enforcing a policy that separates migrant children from their families.

    **SNIP** In the opening monologue on the latest episode of her weekly cable program, “Full Frontal,” Bee went on a coarse tirade that called the domestic abuse allegations against Schneiderman “especially infuriating, given his supposed woke bae-ness.” “Now, Schneiderman was a guest on my show, so this is a little complicated for me to talk about, but — just kidding, it’s not complicated. F–k you, Eric Schneiderman!” she said, to cheers and applause from the audience. “No, no, let me say it louder,” Bee interrupted, before repeating the insult with audio reverb added.
