Fox News Jumps Shark All Because Bill O’Reilly Couldn’t Get Laid

O’Reilly, who rules the ratings roost at Fox News, appears to be a classic example of President Trump’s view on celebrity entitlement....

Trevor Noah Scolds Right Wing Scoffers Over Obama Newtown Tears (watch!)

Trevor Noah’s turn as Jon Stewart’s replacement on “The Daily Show” has been pretty uneventful–until last night.

Bush cried in 1999 recalling the moments leading up to the war in Iraq. Dwight D. Eisenhower cried in 1952 after a speech to the 82nd Airborne. George W. Bush cried during a Medal of Honor ceremony in 2007, Trevor noted. ...

Jon Stewart Samples GOP’s Fulminous Frothing Over Hillary Clinton Campaign

Jon Stewart, like every other political junkie, was anxious to see the Republican (i.e. Fox News) response to Hillary Clinton’s official announcement that she is running for president in 2016.

Jon Stewart Likens Brian Williams Lying to Masturbation (watch!)

Jon Stewart compared NBC anchor’s lies about his Iraq War experiences to masturbation on “The Daily Show” last night (Feb. 9).

Chris Christie Out-Foxed by Ebola Nurse in Botched Quarantine (watch!)

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie did his best to justify quarantining Ebola nurse Caci Hickok only to lift the quarantine under political pressure. So is he tough or a cream puff?
