A Woman Who Worked With O’Reilly During ‘F**k It, We’ll Do It Live’ On His Exit






Fox News announced Wednesday that it had decided to cut ties with Bill O’Reilly, who just a few short weeks ago was the most powerful figure in all of cable news. 
The decision came a result of a growing pile of evidence that O’Reilly mistreated and harassed many of the the female employees around him throughout his career. 
His defenders, however, aren’t buying it. As recently as last weekend, 65 percent of “O’Reilly Factor” viewers saw its host in a favorable light, and only 9 percent of the show’s Republican viewers wanted him gone, according to a HuffPost/YouGov Poll. 
Women continue to face an uphill battle when trying to convince others that they have been mistreated at home or in the workplace. Many corners of U.S. Continue reading "A Woman Who Worked With O’Reilly During ‘F**k It, We’ll Do It Live’ On His Exit"

Ludacris Sure Had The Last Laugh Over Bill O’Reilly And Pepsi, Didn’t He?


Back in 2002, Bill O’Reilly asked his viewers to boycott Pepsi because the company was working with the hip-hop artist Ludacris.
“I’m calling for all responsible Americans to fight back and punish Pepsi for using a man who degrades women, who encourages substance abuse, and does all the things that hurt particularly the poor in our society,” the Fox News host said on “The O’Reilly Factor.”




It worked. Soon after O’Reilly’s call to arms, Pepsi pulled all of its ads featuring Ludacris and stopped working with him entirely ― for what reason is still difficult to discern.
Flash forward 15 years, and the situation not only seems particularly ridiculous, but just drips with irony. 
The beverage company Continue reading "Ludacris Sure Had The Last Laugh Over Bill O’Reilly And Pepsi, Didn’t He?"

Bill O’Reilly On Chopping Block Amid Claim He Called Black Woman ‘Hot Chocolate’


What once seemed unimaginable now seems at least possible.
New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman reported Tuesday that the Murdoch family is “leaning” toward pulling Bill O’Reilly off of Fox News’ airwaves in the middle of growing pressure from advertisers and activist groups.
The report comes amid a separate claim by attorney Lisa Bloom that O’Reilly used to call a black woman who worked as a clerical worker at Fox News “hot chocolate” during her time at the network in 2008. The television host would reportedly make her feel uncomfortable in other ways as well. 
“He would never talk to her, not even hello, except to grunt at her like a wild boar,” Bloom told The Hollywood Reporter. “He would leer at her. He would always do this when no one else was around and she was scared.”
Bloom, who said she verified the woman’s story with three witnesses, claims Continue reading "Bill O’Reilly On Chopping Block Amid Claim He Called Black Woman ‘Hot Chocolate’"

So, Tyler, The Creator Recorded Bill Nye’s New Theme Song


Bill Nye has a new show coming out on Netflix in a couple days called “Bill Nye Saves the World.” April 21 to be exact. 
And to keep up with the times, Bill has evidently enlisted the help of rap star Tyler, The Creator to create the show’s theme song.
The science guy revealed that Tyler created the show’s new opening anthem in a video he posted to Twitter on Sunday. 
“He’s the man. He got the beat,” said Bill, as the two talked about their mutual admiration for one another. 




Tyler, for his part, was a huge fan of Bill’s original theme song and made sure to pay homage to it in his own Continue reading "So, Tyler, The Creator Recorded Bill Nye’s New Theme Song"

‘Veep’ Had To Kill A ‘Golden Shower’ Joke Because Of The Trump Dossier


There’s been a lot of talk about how HBO’s “Veep” will go about tackling its upcoming season.
The writers for the comedy show often sit around dreaming up the most ridiculous scenario that sits just outside to confines of D.C. reality. But considering how often the nation’s current political reality has leaned toward the absurd in the last year, where that line sits has become increasingly difficult to discern.
At least once already this year, reality has turned out to be exactly as ludicrous as the writers’ wildest imaginations. 
“Veep” executive producer David Mandel revealed in a recent as-told-to in The Hollywood Reporter that the show had to pull a “golden shower” joke after it turned out that something very similar had shown up in a dossier that included unverified claims of a Donald Trump visit to Russia: 

The only thing we did have to change — Continue reading "‘Veep’ Had To Kill A ‘Golden Shower’ Joke Because Of The Trump Dossier"

America’s Unhealthy Addiction To Fox News Is Only Getting Worse


Fox News is embroiled in so many scandals these days that it’s hard to keep up.
At least nine advertisers have pulled their ads from “The O’Reilly Factor” this week after a New York Times investigation found that five women have received payouts totaling $13 million as a result of sexual harassment allegations against host Bill O’Reilly. 
Fox News’ toxic culture appears to extend beyond even that. A minimum of 30 women have accused O’Reilly, former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes or other Fox News employees of sexual harassment and discrimination, attorney Lisa Bloom said Monday at a press conference.
And yet O’Reilly and Fox News hold more power over American democracy and Republican voters than ever before. 
Fox News has been the most-watched cable news network since 2002, when it overtook CNN in the ratings. But in 2016, the network went one step further, beating out Continue reading "America’s Unhealthy Addiction To Fox News Is Only Getting Worse"

‘The Daily Show’ Is Creating A Real-Life Library Dedicated To Trump’s Tweets


Donald J. Trump might say he loves to read, but what we know for sure is that the president loves to tweet. So, “The Daily Show” announced Tuesday that it has decided to open The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library to commemorate the many great tweets of our current commander in chief. 
Certainly, we should properly recognize great moments in American presidential history like this one:




The show said in a release that this is going to be an “actual library” located in New York City. It will be open to the public for free for a brief period starting in June. 
“It will be so tremendous that you’ll get Continue reading "‘The Daily Show’ Is Creating A Real-Life Library Dedicated To Trump’s Tweets"
