CNN Reporter: Israelis ‘Scum’

Media bias? What media bias? CNN has removed correspondent Diana Magnay from covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict after she tweeted that Israelis who were cheering the bombing of Gaza, and who had allegedly threatened her, were “scum.” After being threatened and harassed before and during a liveshot, Diana reacted angrily on Twitter,” a CNN spokeswoman said […]

CNN: The Homophobia Network?

Layers and layers of irony here: A former CNN employee claims he was fired because he’s gay and wore bright colors and mariachi outfits to work that were deemed “too flamboyant,” according to a $60 million discrimination lawsuit. William Kane, who started working at CNN in 2002, claims nobody at the news network ever informed […]

Like Fish Don’t Notice Water

CNN President Jeff Zucker declares his network won’t “be shamed into” covering a congressional investigation of the Benghazi scandal, as he claims the pressure to cover Benghazi comes from “others who have political beliefs that want to try to have temper tantrums.” Mocking CNN’s bizarre and monomaniacal devotion to the story of a disappeared jet, […]

Heh: @DaveWeigel Dismantles @PiersMorgan, But Good

 Deft, but also delightfully brutal: Sunday night, after David Carr broke the news that Piers Morgan would be ending his CNN show, I searched Twitter to find how his fans were taking it. This was a mistake. Really, who was a Piers Morgan fan? Have you ever met one? No, reaction to CNN’s scheduling news ran the gamut […]

Good-Bye, and Good Riddance: @PiersMorgan Canned at CNN

First smart move that network has made in years: CNN President Jeff Zucker has decided to bring an end to Piers Morgan’s low-rated primetime show, network sources told POLITICO on Sunday. “Piers Morgan Live” could end as early as next month, though Morgan may stay with the network in another role. Morgan, a former British […]

And I’m a Russian Wolfhound

Just call me Borzoi. And I know what you’re thinking: “Borzoi? But you don’t look anything like a Russian wolfhound! As a matter of fact, on closer inspection, you seem to be a golden retriever.” Haters. Yes, I am aware that those documents from the American Kennel Club — a notorious group of hatemongering breedists […]

Three Gay Men Laugh About Oral Sex With Anderson Cooper’s Mother

The weirdest thing is that Anderson Cooper himself introduced the topic in a discussion with Dan Savage and Andrew Sullivan: “My mom once wrote a romance memoir about men she had dated — and I use that term loosely — and she described one guy she was currently dating — my mom was 85 at […]

If @PiersMorgan Hates America So Much, Why Won’t He Just Leave the Country?

Phil Robertson and @piersmorgan: One of them is a disgusting offensive person on cable TV, and the other one is from Louisiana. #tcot — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) December 20, 2013 Piers Morgan is allegedly heterosexual, so it’s not a hate crime to disagree with CNN’s unpopular 9 p.m. host, whose third-place show got only […]
