Netflix's new CMO handled crises for Uber and Papa John's with ease. The biggest 'badass' in marketing could be its secret weapon in the streaming wars.

Bozoma Saint John, Netflix's newly named chief marketing officer, has climbed the corporate-marketing ranks over 20 years using her celebrity connections and ability to tie brands like Pepsi and Apple to cultural trends. She's also known as unapologetically outspoken and a role model for women of color — who are notoriously underrepresented in the C-suites of corporations.  Netflix has long been synonymous with streaming video, but it needs to convince people to keep subscribing as new options...

[AXIOS on HBO: President Trump Exclusive Interview (Full Episode) | HBO] “We're last...meaning we're first.” Trump pathetically fumbles with charts when pressed on the U.S. coronavirus death rate. In this absolutely not fake or comedy and very much real video, the President of the United States says some mind-boggling things.

John Oliver Has Had Enough Of The U.S. School System’s Crap

I can’t believe I paid for history classes in college when I could’ve just watched this video and learned more for free Back in 2013 there was an absolutely batshit crazy and real, somehow, news story out of Argentina in which a man bought a toy poodle puppy for $150 at a bazaar. Except, as this guy learned upon bringing his new friend to the vet, it turned out it wasn’t actually a puppy — it was a giant, steroid-pumped ferret. If you don’t believe me (which would be understandable) there...

'The Swamp' wades into what's wrong with Congress but doesn't find a way out

"The Swamp" has an attention-grabbing title, but this HBO documentary -- built around extensive access to three Republican congressmen -- gets bogged down in too many side streams. The film serves as an indictment of the existing system and a profile of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, a have-it-both-ways formula that might explain why this feels like at least two documentaries in one.

‘An American Pickle’ Review: A Clumsy But Sweet Story About Family, Friendship, and Pickles

For all its occasional bursts of fleeting beauty, the world is an inherently lonely place. And even those who prefer to remain loners can, on occasion, seek out the warmth of connection, however brief or fleeting. That search for connection is hidden within An American Pickle, a sweet, silly movie that never quite decides what it wants to be, but not for lack of trying. Once you move beyond the goofy premise – which involves a man brined in a pickle vat for 100 years – you find a film filled wi...
