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 now, there’s a rumor going around about a very exciting “something else.” The word on the street is that Eliot Spitzer may get the 8 p.m. time slot, for a “‘Crossfire’-esque debate show.” The Spitz is not as nice to look at as Campbell, but he has been appearing on a lot of cable news shows lately. He even guest hosted MSNBC’s “The Dylan Ratigan Show” on Monday. Plus, as the laws of reality TV dictate, “If they don’t go away on their own, put them on television!” Keep reading »

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 studio from Grant Park in Chicago. At a such a crucial time in our history, Anderson Cooper united nerds across this great land by saying, “Let’s see if we can beam him in.” Then, right there, before our very eyes, the first man ever in hologram, FOR REAL, on national television!
Okay, so Will.i.am got it a little mixed up and said he felt like he was in “Star Wars.” But, Cooper quickly corrected him that, much like cell phones, it was in fact The Trek that was responsible for this kind of totally awesome technology! [FYI, "Star Wars" had pre-recorded hologram messages ("Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.") but could not beam people anywhere, though that sure would have come in handy.] Sigh, we love the Coop!

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 some people were voting for McCain — but, in a way, it didn’t really matter. No matter who you’re voting for, or who wins, this is quite possibly the most important presidential election in US history. And it’s pretty awesome that we get to be a part of making history by voting. So, if the Frisky is your home away from home online, and we hope it is, as it is ours, you can be a part of Election Day on The Frisky, courtesy of CNN.com, with a special widget created just for Frisky readers. Continuously updated with breaking news and election returns as they happen, the Frisky’s electoral widget is located on the right-hand side of every page, so you can watch this historical election unfold before your eyes in real time.

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 are The Frisky’s Top Five HILF’s (Homosexuals We’d Like To F–k).
5. Neil Patrick Harris: Le geek c’est chic! The former child star of Doogie Houser, MD is all grown up and gay. NPH has buffed up and achieved cult status as the recurring hero in the buddy movie series, Harold and Kumar. Mmm, wouldn’t you like to get piled up in a Monday Menage with those three guys?
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 your perspective. Check out the clip above! Keep reading »
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! While putzing around with this fine example of consumer technology, we discovered that you could change the words in the URL to reflect whatever headline you want! Like, “Anderson Cooper Has A Semi For Larry King” — and the words will appear on the shirt! Sweet! Sadly, the site isn’t so security-less that you can actually BUY this work of genius for yourself. Good for a laugh though! (We haven’t used the word “semi” in ages.) [CNN: "Anderson Cooper Has A Semi For Larry King"] Keep reading »
