    Wikipedia has barred citations of The Daily Mail after editors of the online encyclopedia concluded Wednesday that the British tabloid is “generally unreliable.” The decision came after a spirited, years-long debate over the Daily Mail’s credibility among Wikipedia’s active community of volunteer editors. The editors explained Wednesday that the decision stemmed from “the Daily Mail’s reputation for poor fact checking, sensationalism, and flat-out fabrication.” As a result, the Daily Mail and its online offshoot have been “generally prohibited” as a reference on Wikipedia, “especially when other more reliable sources exist.” […] Such a move is unusual for Wikipedia, which has...

    DC Comics’ line of reimagined Hanna-Barbera comics is about to expand with a new title....writer Mark Russell revealed that his next project... will be a Snagglepuss comic that reinvents the cartoon character as “a gay Southern Gothic playwright.” Snagglepuss debuted in 1959 as a featured character in “The Quick Draw McGraw Show,” and later moved on to star in his own segments on “The Yogi Bear Show.” The character Snagglepuss has long been presumed by some audiences to be gay, which Russell acknowledged. “[I]t’s never discussed and it’s obviously ignored in the cartoons ’cuz they were made at a time...

    The Washington Post's Lifestyle ^ | December 23, 2016 | David Weigel
    Every Thursday, the actor, comedian and producer Tim Heidecker hosts open-line “office hours.” Fans of his absurdist comedy, most of which runs on Time Warner’s Adult Swim network, call in to talk. On most days, they run the gamut from fans to superfans. But on Dec. 8, Heidecker took a call from Sam Hyde, the face of the comedy troupe Million Dollar Extreme. Its own Adult Swim series, “World Peace,” had been scrapped after a six-episode run. “Didn’t you want the show canceled?” asked Hyde. “Didn’t you campaign against our show?” For 12 minutes, live on Facebook, Hyde mocked Heidecker’s...

    A CNN host used a segment on Islamophobia on Monday to suggest American non-Muslims may want to start wearing hijabs. “New Day” with Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota featured a piece titled “The Trump transition: Fearful Muslim women take steps to be safe” just hours before Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 20, attempted to use a vehicle and a butcher knife to kill Ohio State University students. The ill-timed story ended with Ms. Camerota discussing ways to ease the fears of Muslim Americans. “Maybe there will be a movement where people wear the head scarf in solidarity. You know, even if...

    'Don't stand for being called or labeled 'lying' or 'crooked' or 'failing' CNN’s Christiane Amanpour called for left-wing press unity in opposition to President-elect Donald Trump during the 2016 International Press Freedom Awards on Wednesday. Accepting an award acknowledging her ostensible contributions to “press freedom,” Amanpour issued her call to arms via a prepared speech. Amanpour began with alarmism, framing Trump as a dictator-in-progress:

    NY Post ^ | November 21, 2016 | Emily Smith and Daniel Halper
    President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source. “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed…. “The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. A second source confirmed the encounter. “The meeting took place...

    Sing the song, blow out the candles, eat the cake and unwrap the gifts. According to a court filing on Monday, music publisher Warner/Chappell will pay $14 million to end a lawsuit challenging its hold on the English language's most popular song, "Happy Birthday to You." Additionally, the settlement stipulates a proposed final judgment and order that would declare the song to be in the public domain. A memorandum in support of the settlement sings the praises of the deal as "truly, an historic result." U.S. District Judge George H. King will have to sign off on it. The revelation...

    To be sure, Sen. Ted Cruz accomplished something no other GOP candidate this year has been able to do. He made Donald Trump a loser. No amount of humility or grace will change the fact The Donald was handed his first "L" at the hands of that "Canadian" nobody likes. And it wasn't even close. Yet, even as Cruz might like to revel in this history-making night in Iowa, the storyline has shifted away from him to the emergence of Marco Rubio as a viable alternative in the GOP race. Not only did Trump lose to Cruz, he almost lost...

    My late friend and colleague Hilton Kramer used to tell the story about how Time magazine (remember Time?) would prep its photographers before sending them off to snap the likeness of someone they were profiling. The magazine didn't just want a portrait. It was always "Good guy" or "Bad guy." This was well known. So when Time sent someone to photograph Norman Podhoretz, the former editor of Commentary who had lately shed his left-wing opinions and emerged as a powerful voice on the Right, Norman had the wit to ask "Good guy or bad guy?" The photographer shook his head...

    (CNN)In a YouTube video, Mikki Willis of Ojai, California, told the story of how his son, who received duplicate presents for his birthday, went to the toy store to exchange one of the gifts for an Ariel doll from the Disney film, "The Little Mermaid." "How do you think a dad feels when his son wants to get this?" asks Willis with his son, Azai, by his side holding the doll. "Yeah!" cheers his son. "Yeah!" Willis then cheers, as well. The video, posted in August, has now been seen nearly 4 million times on YouTube.

    CNN’s far left liberal Marc Lamont Hill is always eager to deride the “military-industrial complex” so it’s no surprise that he’d mock our soldiers on Veteran’s Day by tweeting this picture of Communist soldiers instead of American ones: Notice how long it had been up in that screenshot – nearly an hour! But Marc is now saying that it was an accident: snip He says that he’s celebrating Veteran’s Day in his way – the commie way!!

    The Lindsey Graham show turned up in Simi Valley, California, during tonight's CNN Republican presidential debate. After a flat performance in August at the first GOP debate, the South Carolina senator lit up the crowd at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library during CNN's undercard debate, lashing his opponents with sharp barbs and dropping zingers that brought roars of approval. "That's the first thing I'm going to do as president: We're going to drink more," he said. Graham also trashed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton in eyebrow-raising terms. "Where the hell were you" during the Benghazi, Libya, attacks, Graham fumed when...

    (CNN)—NASA's rockets are astounding machines, capable of blasting into space at thousands of miles per hour and withstanding temperatures twice the melting point of steel. But they can't take off underwater. Rising sea levels caused by melting ice caps threaten to disrupt a handful of NASA launch sites along U.S. coastlines, the space agency warns. In the coming years, launch facilities at Florida's Kennedy Space Center and other places may need to be retrofitted or even moved inland, NASA says. "Every NASA center has its own set of vulnerabilities, and some are more at risk than others," NASA climatologist...

    Vernon, Calif., the notoriously corrupt, industrial city that inspired True Detective season two, is a far cry from the eerie swamplands of the Louisiana bayou, but we’re there for a reason — right? In this week’s episode, “Maybe Tomorrow,” Det. Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) and California Highway Patrol officer Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) search for the killer, leading them to ambush the home of Mayor Austin Chessani (Ritchie Coster), who was in close, questionable contact with the seedy city manager before his death. While in Chessani’s mansion, we catch a glimpse of a framed photo of the mayor and former...
