The best and worst of the 2019 TV upfronts

Nothing was more evident during TV’s biggest week than the fact that networks are at a crossroads. Once the place to show off splashy content that people will (hopefully) watch so advertisers can sell them things, this year’s dog-and-pony shows were overshadowed by mega-deals, messy scandals and streaming services. These topics were at the center of some of best jokes, flashiest costumes and stunts of the week. Funniest OTT joke Streaming video was a focal point at nearly all of the presentati...

When does social media star of the nonhuman kind get a mainstream media obituary?

Grumpy Cat.Though her real name is Tardar Sauce, she earned the notorious moniker in 2012 when a photo of her scowl was posted to Reddit. (Her small size and frown were likely due to feline dwarfism, her family later revealed.)Endless memes—and success—followed. In addition to nabbing MSNBC's Most Influential Cat Award, she also scored campaigns with Purina and Cheerios. She had guest spots on Today, Good Morning America, American Idol, Sesame Street and even The Bachelorette.... And in 2014, sh...

MSNBC’s Ali Velshi Shuts Down Hugh Hewitt: ‘Hugh, Just Stop, For Heaven’s Sake!’

MSNBC host Ali Velshi tussled with conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt Thursday afternoon over escalating tensions between the Trump administration and Iran. “ I believe the most important  aspect of this confrontation is  that the nature of the Iranian  regime has not changed since  1979,” Hewitt said. “ It’s not about John Bolton.  It’s not about Mike Pompeo.  It’s not about President Trump.  It’s about the fact that we have  a theocracy run by a dictator,” Hewitt said.  As Hew...

This Was Probably Not The Reaction Bill De Blasio Was Hoping For

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s decision to join the dozens running in the Democratic primary was met with a solid wall of negative reaction. From derision to irritation to outright laughter, reactions from the Twitter-verse display the extent to which no one was clamoring for a President Bill de Blasio. One person, upon hearing that NYC Mayor De Blasio is officially running for president, asked @watchsavannah “Is that a joke?” and then started hysterically laughing.

Scarborough Hammers Barr For ‘Laughing’ About ‘Breaking The Law’

Attorney General William Barr has made light of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s recommendation that he be held in contempt at least twice (that we know of). During a farewell event for former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein earlier this month, Barr joked that he set a “record” for how quickly an attorney general had been held in contempt. On Wednesday, Barr reportedly approached House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and asked her if she brought “your handcuffs.” Per bystander: While waiting for...

Trump Thanks Old Pal Scarborough For Calling Him Young: My ‘BRAIN’ Is Sharp Too!

President Trump took a backhanded compliment from MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough and used it to brag-tweet about his “BRAIN.” During a segment on “Morning Joe” Wednesday morning, Scarborough acknowledged that Trump is vivacious on the campaign trail and looks “20 years younger” than some of his Democratic challengers, even if he is spewing hateful rhetoric.

Holding Barr in Contempt Is a Case of Dirty Politics

Ever since Donald Trump came down that Trump Tower escalator to announce his candidacy for president, we’ve heard a great deal about the abuse of norms -- constitutional norms, democratic norms, norms of decency, all kinds of norms. For Trump supporters, the president’s frequent violations of norms, while occasionally regrettable, were for the most part welcome because they proved he was willing to fight to win. This was necessary, the theory went, because the Left didn’t care about norms anymor...

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) hit the Trump administration for its “lawless” actions on Wednesday evening, just hours after his committee voted to hold the attorney general in contempt of Congress.
