Iran’s state-run PressTV on Tuesday mocked Vice President Kamala Harris for her remarks on the Dobbs abortion decision from the U.S. Supreme Court. “In a bombshell revelation, US Vice President Kamala Harris announces she’s ‘the daughter of a woman, and a granddaughter of a woman,’” PressTV sneered.

The UK Daily Mail , for example, called the interview “bizarre” and reproduced her entire exchange with CNN’s Dana Bash: ‘I thought about it as a parent. We have two children who are in their 20s, a son and a daughter. I thought about it as a godparent of teenagers. I thought of it as an aunt of … [Read more...] about Iranian State Media Mocks Kamala Harris’s Abortion Comments
The on-its-face ludicrous (more on this below) tale of former President Trump lunging at a steering wheel and assaulting a Secret Service agent remains on Fox News without an update about its debunking . If Fox tries to sneak in and stealth-edit it, here’s a saved screenshot from late last night, hours and hours after the story was shown to be false. So what we have here is Fox News continuing to spread an OBVIOUS hoax even AFTER it’s been debunked . Fox is deliberately endorsing a blatant lie that was glaringly false from the moment it was spoken… This Cassidy Hutchinson woman claimed she heard the “lunge” story third-hand from White House deputy chief of staff Tony Ornato, and now this same Tony Ornato says he never told her that story. I’m no lawyer, but isn’t that perjury? Isn’t that… newzzzz? Moreover, this Hutchinson loon claimed she wrote a note everyone says she didn’t . Talk about fruit of the poison tree. Ah, but here’s oh-so fair and balanced … [Read more...] about Nolte: Fox News Still Hasn’t Updated Hoax Story About Trump

Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 5 LOS ANGELES - The day she found out that her group Eurythmics had its first No. 1 single in America, Annie Lennox was at a hotel in San Francisco. The hotel was Japanese-inspired, and its windows appeared to have a rice-paper-like translucency. Lennox was already beginning to struggle with the early onset of fame-related anxiety, and this didn't help. "It felt like I had nowhere to hide," Lennox says now. "I was so conscious of earthquakes, because I had never really been to San Francisco before. Maybe once. And I was just thinking, 'Oh my God, I feel so vulnerable. Now we've got rice-paper windows and earthquakes happening.' It was like being naked in front of the world." The single that kick-started the duo's pathbreaking, almost decade-long run up the pop charts - the galvanic synth-pop classic "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" - will turn 40 next year. In the run-up … [Read more...] about Annie Lennox beguiled us in the MTV age. Now she calms us down online.

Dean Fleischer Camp realized as much in the summer of 2010, when the first audience was introduced to the stop-motion character's trembling timbre and infectious positivity. After promising he'd make a video for a friend's Brooklyn comedy show, the filmmaker got his then-partner, "Saturday Night Live" alum Jenny Slate, to riff in character as a minuscule mollusk in a big world. (One quip: "Guess what I do for adventure? I hang-glide on a Dorito.") Dropping Slate's voice in Marcel's roughly sketched mouth, Camp delivered a three-minute mockumentary that played as amusing, absurdist and, to his surprise, delightfully disarming. "It was kind of an arty, judgmental crowd there, so I was not expecting them to melt … [Read more...] about ‘Marcel the Shell’ made it to the big screen by staying small
WASHINGTON (AP) — Ketanji Brown Jackson has been sworn in to the Supreme Court, shattering a glass ceiling as the first Black woman on the nation’s highest court. The 51-year-old Jackson is the court’s 116th justice and she took the place Thursday of the justice she once worked for. Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement took effect at noon. Moments later, joined by her family, Jackson recited the two oaths required of Supreme Court justices, one administered by Breyer and the other by Chief Justice John Roberts. “With a full heart, I accept the solemn responsibility of supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States and administering justice without fear or favor, so help me God,” Jackson said in a statement issued by the court. “I am truly grateful to be part of the promise of our great Nation. I extend my sincerest thanks to all of my new colleagues for their warm and gracious welcome.” Roberts welcomed Jackson “to the court and our common calling.” The ceremony … [Read more...] about Jackson sworn in, becomes 1st Black woman on Supreme Court
