UPDATE [2]: Okay, I’ve put the video back, in two parts, minus Trent Mays’ testimony.

UPDATE: I have pulled the video from this post for the time being, as I believe at one point in the eight minute segment, you can hear Mays use the victim’s name. I’ll try to replace the video with… READ MORE »

Well, this is awful. A black camerawoman working for CNN was pelted with nuts by two white RNC attendees and told “this is how we feed the animals” while covering the Republican National Convention on Tuesday. Two convention-goers were ejected following the incident, which was first reported by Talking Points Memo.

CNN issued… READ MORE »

Remember this morning, when the Supreme Court upheld Obama’s health care law? That was awesome. But in the moments after the ruling came down, there was mass confusion about what it all meant. After all, Supreme Court rulings aren’t just like, YAY or NAY. They’re hundreds of complexly worded legal documents. So because both CNN… READ MORE »

Who’s been called in as “experts” on cable news to discuss the current debate over birth control? More men than women, that’s who. Across all the networks, 91 men appeared to talk about the birth control debate, while only 55 women appeared on-air. The greatest disparity was at the Fox stations, but the “liberal”-leaning network… READ MORE »

This video combines four of my favorite things: silver fox Anderson Cooper, awesomely bad puns, the mocking of a celebrity who pissed themselves on a plane, and a newscaster cracking up on air. Last night, during a segment called “RidicuList,” Anderson just couldn’t contain his laughter after spouting out a long list of… READ MORE »

Yesterday, we addressed the rumor that Eliot Spitzer might replace Campbell Brown on CNN, hosting a “‘Crossfire”-esque debate show. It seems that no one is particularly psyched about this proposition, even Spitzer himself. Right now, Spitzer is working at his father’s real estate company, which isn’t really helping his reputation much. So, we set out… READ MORE »

Sigh. Emmy Award-winning reporter Campbell Brown is leaving CNN. In a statement, she didn’t beat around the bush, saying, “The simple fact is that not enough people want to watch my program, and I owe it to myself and to CNN to get out of the way so that CNN can try something else.” And… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

Texting has become as ubiquitous as the cell phones that birthed them, but what is it doing to our love lives? Can you imagine what a different movie “Casablanca” would be if, instead of suavely growling, “Here’s looking at you, kid,” Rick instead texted Ilsa:

Same sentiment (sort of), yet… READ MORE »

OK, first of all, let me make it clear that I don’t believe in the concept of “the one.” I think each of us has more like the “top 40″ or even “winning 100,” depending on how much ground you cover. But even in a world brimming with possibilities, at some point in our lives… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

Last weekend at a party, I noticed a toad-like man attaching himself to a beautiful, talented friend of mine. Not only was she way out of his league, looks-wise, but as I eavesdropped I discovered he was one of those dudes who delivers endless monologues instead of engaging in actual conversations.

Ladies, I… READ MORE »

Few things are more entertaining than bad date stories. Who wants to hear about hearts and flowers when flatulence and festering sores are so much more fun? Which is why when my friend Sal wanted to share what she assured me were horror stories about her recent attempts at online dating, I was ecstatic –… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

In my twenties, I dated a guy who was 12 years older than me. In my thirties, I went in the other direction, dating a dude 11 years my junior. (Don’t you dare call me a cougar!) Although both ended rather badly, I feel like that while the gaping age difference didn’t directly cause either… READ MORE »

Last night, an African-American man made television history! Sure, Barack has got our future in his very capable hands, but Will.i.am transported us straight into “Star Trek” territory! That’s right, the beat box behind the Black Eyed Peas, who also made the very viral “Yes We Can” video, was teleported into the CNN… READ MORE »

Today, I got up at five o’clock this morning to vote. At the polling place, I waited in line for two and a half hours. The line snaked down a hall, around a corner, back up the hall, and then all the way around again along the wall. Some people were voting for Obama, and… READ MORE »

CNN’s Campbell Brown totally tore the McCain camp a new you-know-what for banning reporters from questioning Sarah Palin while she was in New York yesterday meeting with world leaders at the United Nations. Don’t have the patience to watch the vid? Transcript after the jump… … READ MORE »

The Frisky is chock full of fag hags who understand boys will be boys, and in some cases, those boys will be gay. But even if these guys love to love men, we just can’t stop wanting to love them. So in honor of all the gorgeous gay gents who love to tease us, here… READ MORE »

Last night on 360 with Anderson Cooper, when the reporter tried to get his guest, Donna Brazile, to cough up some personal information on the candidates, she coyly said, “But Anderson, you’re not my boo.” Which led ol’ Anderson to start using the word too, with hilarious, adorable, or horrifying results, depending on… READ MORE »

So, CNN loves their wacky headlines so much, they’ve made it so you can order them as t-shirts! For example, if you, say, love the headline, “Weird fish leave sea, spawn on beach”, you can just click the little t-shirt icon next to it on CNN.com, and order it as a t-shirt!
