1 hour ago

In April 2011, De Niro spoke with NBC’s Brian Williams in an interview at the Tribeca Film Festival. This was at the very beginning of Trump’s political career, and he was championing the “birther” movement against President Obama. “I won’t mention any of the certain people on the news in the last couple weeks,” De Niro told Williams. “But what are we doing? This is crazy. They’re making statements about people that they don’t even back up.

2 hours ago

In a recent “Judge Judy” episode, Judith Sheindlin settled a dog ownership dispute with a no-nonsense solution: she just let the dog loose in the courtroom to determine its real owner. A woman claimed to have legally purchased the dog from a woman on the street. However, another man in the courtroom claimed the dog is his.

3 hours ago

We knew from the end of his own movie that Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) would be showing up in “Thor: Ragnarok,” but we hadn’t seen him in trailers for the third standalone “Thor” film so far. Until now. The international version of the most recent trailer gives us a glimpse of the sorcerer in the upcoming Marvel blockbuster. The rest of the trailer plays out like the American one, but these quick scenes in the beginning give an idea of what the sorcerer’s role will be. “Thor, I sense a great change in your future,” he says. “Destiny has dire plans. »

Trump Is ‘Sad’ to See ‘Beautiful’ Confederate Monuments Removed: ‘Will Be Greatly Missed’

3 hours ago

President Trump sent a three-tweet message on Thursday morning, proclaiming that he is “sad” to see “beautiful statues and monuments” that commemorate confederate leaders removed from American cities, saying they “will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!” The weekend violence in Charlottesville, Virginia all started over the potential removal of a Robert E. Lee statue when net-Nazis and white supremacists obtained a permit to protest its takedown. Lee was commander of the pro-slavery Confederate army in the U.S. Civil War. Counter-protestors showed up, and the chaos that ensued left one person dead and at least 19 others injured. »

Associated Press Clarifies ‘Alt-Right’ Rule: ‘Euphemism to Disguise Racist Aims’

3 hours ago

The Associated Press will avoid using the term “alt-right” following the violence in Charlottesville because the news organization feels the term “is meant as a euphemism to disguise racist aims.” “So use it only when quoting someone or when describing what the movement says about itself. Enclose the term ‘alt-right’ in quotation marks or use phrasing such as the so-called alt-right (no quote marks when using the term so-called) or the self-described ‘alt-right,'” AP vice president of standards John Daniszewski wrote. The Associated Press’ style guidelines, typically referred to as “AP Style,” are the used by most mainstream news organizations in. »

Morning Joe” guest Katty Kay, a BBC World News America anchor, said Thursday that many Europeans view America as a “freak show” that’s “dismissed around the world.” Kay recalled recently visiting family in Europe and noticing that the U.S. isn’t recognized by Europeans for “global leadership” during the Trump administration — and this was before the weekend violence in Charlottesville, Virginia that left a counter-protestor dead during a white supremacy rally. “The White House is losing moral authority around the world and Charlottesville doesn’t help that at all, and it’s almost an irrelevancy,” Kay said. “This is the country with the. »

Steve Bannon Calls Far Right ‘Clowns,’ Says His Government Enemies Are ‘Wetting Themselves’

11 hours ago

White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon is almost certainly not friends with Anthony Scaramucci, but he has at least one thing in common with the man who infamously accused him of self-fellating: he doesn’t understand what a journalist does. In the wake of Donald Trump’s disastrous press conference Tuesday, there was a dramatic spike in calls for Bannon to be fired. Bannon has after all been seen as the link between Trump and the white nationalist movement that adores him. He’s even been criticized by members of the Republican party.

15 hours ago

All together now! Last week we introduced you to the idea of Subscription Aggregation as a possible remedy for Ott fatigue.
