  • College Student Claims White People, Patriarchy Giving him Heart, Breathing Problems

    Writing an opinion piece to Michigan State University’s paper the State News, Rashad Timmons says that microaggressions are causing him several medical afflictions. His letter was titled, “Intentional or not, microaggressions severely impact underrepresented members of society.” According to Timmons, people who “are not privileged” are suffering greatly from the intentional and unintentional triggers that others are causing. “On a campus,” he writes, ” — and nation at large — in which whiteness, patriarchy, heteronormativity, cissexism, ableism and classism prevail, students that are not privileged by these constructs often have difficulty navigating hegemonic, oppressive environments.” Timmons writes about different maladies...

    Washington Post ^ | 4/8/15 | Sarah Kaplan
    Stan Freberg was funny in every medium he tried. In cartoons, where he was the voice of a gopher, two bears and an insurance agent, among others. On his radio show and comedy albums, on which he spoofed everyone from George Washington to Elvis Presley, from to Harry Belafonte to Lawrence Welk and the Founding Fathers. In his revolutionary ad campaigns, which injected humor into the staid, overly earnest advertisements of earlier decades, sometimes at the cost of the very product he was selling. (In a classic commercial for pit-less prunes, a skeptic of the fruit sniffs, “They’re still rather...

    The new Daily Show host, criticised for tweeting unfunny jokes, has been defended by many, including his new employers Trevor Noah, the South African comic who was recently announced as Jon Stewart's replacement to host the satirical American talk show, The Daily Show, has been supported by his new employers after old, and distinctly unfunny, tweets from years before came to light. ... journalists have also supported Noah. Caitlin Dewey at The Washington Post wrote: "Six tweets, out of almost 9,000?! That’s not exactly a representative sample." Dewey and other writers cited Jon Ronson's recent, and much-acclaimed book, So You've...

    Breitbart's Big Hollywood ^ | 3/31/15 | by JOHN NOLTE
    Trevor Noah, the 31 year-old South African comedian hand-picked by Jon Stewart and Comedy Central to replace Stewart, has a major Twitter problem on his hands. Being shot to superstardom often results in an instantaneous social media vetting, something Noah, Stewart, and Comedy Central were apparently unaware of. ItÂ’s fairly obvious no one in charge vetted NoahÂ’s Twitter feed or they just didnÂ’t care that it is loaded with jokes aimed at gays, Asians, the overweight, and Jews. This revelation is especially interesting after learning that Noah has already trashed America as racist. The hypocrisy of Jon Stewart is just...

    Newsbusters ^ | 3/30/2015 | Kyle Drennen
    On Monday, Comedy Central announced that South African comedian Trevor Noah would be replacing Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show. To get a feel for Noah's brand of humor, one could simply watch his debut on the fake news show in December of 2014, when he jokingly declared that present-day America had worse race relations than Apartheid South Africa. After introducing Noah as the show's newest contributor at the time, Stewart noted: "And I know that you flew in, I guess, yesterday from South Africa." Noah replied: "Yeah, I just flew in and boy are my arms tired....No,...

    Who Killed Comedy?: Liberals, and not by accident by Daniel Clark Since Jon Stewart announced that he will be ending The Daily Show, which has run on Comedy Central for 16 years, even non-liberals have expressed a certain amount of admiration for him, and not completely without reason. Unlike the mainstream late-night hosts, Stewart is forthright about the fact that he’s pitching his liberal ideology, and when he interviews conservatives, he’s a lot more polite to them than David Letterman has ever been. But is he funny? No. Not even close. Just try watching and reading the “highlights” in some...

    Alright it appears this is the 40-year review of SNL. The actual review begins in a bit over a half an hour, but there is a lead-in one-hour segment which is going on now. I've already seen Sarah Palin interviewed, and her nemesis Tina Fey as well. Eddie Murphy seems to have a knock-out main squeeze, when he was just interviewed.

    I just read a very recent op/ed in the New York Times about the retiring of Jon Stewart. I didn't bring it here because I so disliked it but if you wish to go read it, do so. It was a worship piece. Then I read the comments. If the op/ed writer was a cardinal of Stewart worship, the commenters were, nearly to a person, the priests and nuns in the service of Stewart. While FR respects pieces published in a hyperbolic biased media, I don't. And I feel this is the place to really pour out our intelligent discussion...

    Comedian Jimmy Fallon is a celebrity fraud's best friend. He's an answer to normal America's question: How do creepy stars get away with their grotesqueries? If you're lucky enough to sit by his late-night throne and join his cool-kid games, all your troubles will melt away. Funnyman Jimmy is not just a bread-and-circuses buffoon. He's the keeper of the pop culture immunity necklace. A few weeks ago, "The Tonight Show" host bestowed his boob-tube shield upon grotesque actress Lena Dunham -- a favorite repeat guest who famously declared an "obsessive crush" on Fallon. This time, they played "perverted Pictionary." The...

    One of the things I will miss most about the late Joan Rivers is that she almost never apologized. She was literally unapologetic, not unapologetic in the way that Hollywood usually pats itself on the back for, when they’ve just posted another sharply worded admonition of Donald Rumsfeld on Huffington Post. By not apologizing, the octogenarian provacateur was free to go on provoking in our hypersensitive day and age. She defused imminent outrage explosions with one finger— the middle one. Despite her success, very few seemed to follow her example.This week, I was glad to see two Hollywood women,...

    Funeral services for former Gov. Mario Cuomo are being planned for Tuesday at the Saint Ignatius Loyola Church on Park Avenue in Manhattan, a church official told the Daily News. A time for the service has not been determined but the funeral is likely to cause a week's postponment of the State of the Address, which had been planned for Wednesday, two sources said. Another source said Cuomo administration officials have asked the Empire State Plaza Convention Center, where the speech was to be held, to keep time availabe for the re-scheduled speech the week of Jan. 12.

    What's fascinating about the coverage of the persuasive accusations against Bill Cosby, now 18 and rising, is that race doesn't dominate. There's an outcry at the abuse of women, and he's shredded the healthy black father family man image he carefully cultivated on his sitcom, but you don't read or hear notice taken of the fact that the women who say he drugged and raped them were usually white. Nor is the culture called racist for having turned Bill Cosby into an angry black man who spent his aggression against those vulnerable white women. There's anger at a celebrity's abuse...

Their Obama impersonator, Jay Pharoah, was featured doing a fake presser on C-SPAN where he introduced Ebola czar Ron Klain, who took questions about his qualifications for the job. Rather than trying to scatter the smack talk across both parties, this was pretty much a mockery of Barack Obama’s entire second term, with the fake President himself doing the mocking. “Some people want to criticize the way our administration has...

A Brookings Institute survey recently noted that he is a news source more trusted by liberals and independents than MSNBC is. “The real power to influence the left resides on Comedy Central not MSNBC,” says Politics USA. But if you’re searching your television lineup for a conservative antidote to Stewart, the field is rather limited. There is late night Red Eye’s Greg Gutfeld, there is… actually, there’s just Gutfeld. Or there was until this month, when The Flipside with Michael Loftus debuted on...

That is to say, she is acutely aware of the purpose, the invaluable purpose,...

It’s a desperate and brainless vehicle for Melissa McCarthy, which she wrote herself, with her husband, Ben Falcone, who also directed, with all the efficiency and verve of an abandoned Volkswagen on the Jersey Turnpike. There isn’t a single shred of evidence that either of them has one iota of talent in the world of filmmaking. Tammy is not just a celebration...
