    Newsbusters ^ | October 17, 2017 1:23 PM EDT | Scott Whitlock
    ABC news journalist and Barack Obama fangirl Robin Roberts on Monday’s Nightline gushed over a new book of pictures of the Obamas. Co-host Dan Harris deemed the collection of images “picture perfect.” Talking to former White House photographer Amanda Lucidon, Roberts fawned over a picture of the couple snuggling close to each other: “Didn't the President tweet this photo for Valentine's Day?” Harris hyped, “And picture perfect. The White House staff photographer getting candid about her years following First Lady Michelle Obama. The story behind this famous image.” In contrast, when Roberts interviewed Laura Bush in 2007, she wondered if...
  • Female Game Developer Fired For Calling Other Women "Pretty"

    One of the largest video game industry conferences currently taking place in Poland has become subject to a controversy after its social media manager—and game developer—made a gaffe on Twitter. Her crime? Using the word “pretty” to describe other women. Her innocuous tweet was met with immediate fury from transgender game developers like No Man’s Sky’s Innes McKendrick, who assumed Wiznerowicz’s gender, and demanded that she “shut the hell up and listens to them.”

  • Reconsidering Hillary Clinton: When she holds public office, she impresses and excels

    My perception of Clinton has changed dramatically since the election, shifting from reluctant respect to wistful admiration. Before Nov. 8, my attitude was “I’m not ‘with her’, but she’ll do.” I voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary, and while I was not the deluded sort of college liberal who was “feeling the Bern” and refusing to accept that there was no way for Sanders to win the nomination, I held enough anti-establishment sentiments to enjoy watching Clinton struggle to secure each and every delegate.

    Original Material | 10/16/2017 | By Laz A. Mataz
    In the wake of the Weinstein allegations of sexual misconduct, I've noticed Hillary Clinton blasting President Trump for being an 'admitted sexual assaulter' for his comments in a locker room about being able to 'grab women by the [kitty-cat]'. Leaving aside that this is not admitting the conduct, but noting the ability, the brazen hypocracy of her stating this -- what with the track record of her rapist husband, Bill Clinton -- is mindboggling and leaves me gobsmacked. However, I am a helpful person, and wish to give her a script she can follow for the next press conference. In...

    Ah! The scent of chlorine-permeated hair blowing in the wind, the pungent odor of sweaty bodies, and the cloying coconut scent of tanning lotion are part of summer. But now those joyous months are a blur in our rearview mirrors as we launch into fall and all the ways people, athletes, in particular, manage to get grubby. It is October and baseball division playoffs are in full swing. We cheer for our favorite teams, hoping they reach the ultimate baseball pinnacle known as World Series Champions. But, have you noticed all the ways the boys of summer manage to get...

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—As the partial government shutdown grinds on into its twelfth day, Americans remain deeply divided over what kind of wild animal they would most like to see Congress mauled by, according to a new poll released today. While a majority of Americans say they would enjoy seeing Congress torn limb from limb by a ferocious bear, there is disagreement over which species of bear would be best suited for that assignment. When asked, “What kind of bear would do the best job of savaging Congress with its fearsome paws?,” Americans gave grizzly bears the highest job-approval rating,...

    C'mon, all you creative Freeper wordsmiths. Time for collaborative songwriting. There's a song just BEGGING to be written here. Add a few more rhyming lines, decide on the refrain, and then someone pick an existing tune that goes with it. Highlight Hillary's and SNL's silence, and their NY connection to Weinstein.

  • Seth MacFarlane Says Oscars Dig Was Meant to Shame Weinstein

    New York Post ^ | October 11, 2017 | Lia Eustachewich
    Comedian Seth MacFarlane admitted Wednesday that he ripped Harvey Weinstein ahead of the 2013 Oscars after learning the movie mogul preyed on his pal Jessica Barth. Back then, the “Family Guy” creator notably cracked, “Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein,” as he read off nominees for the Supporting Actress category. The clip has gone viral since the Weinstein scandal came to light.
