    U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley is likely sweating it after a remark about the lack of towel service at an exclusive gym that has remained open to lawmakers during the government shutdown. The Iowa congressman defended the backlash for the gym's continued operation, while thousands of government employees are furloughed, including workers at the fitness center. He said on the "Bill Press Show:" "There's hardly anybody working down there. There's no towel service. So we're doing our own laundry down there. And we pay a fee to belong to the House gym. So this is no different than if you're working...

    The Daily Caller ^ | March 25, 2014 | Christopher Bedford, managing editor
    In a Tuesday morning puff profile on Hillary Clinton loyalist and Media Matters founder David Brock, The Politico actually manages to blame conservatives for an anti-Obama attack designed and launched by — wait for it — Mrs. Clinton’s camp. “For Brock, the attacks on Obama bear some similarities to the types of attacks on the Clinton White House,” the site tells us. “Obama has faced a range of attacks from the right, including the belief, championed in some conservative quarters, that he was not born in the United States.” Dun-dun-dunnnnnn! But the funny thing is, if we rewind The Politico...

The motion, presented Tuesday by Councilmen Paul Koretz and Mike Bonin and seconded by Councilman Bernard Parks, asks for city departments to team up with the California Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources, the U.S. Geological Survey and the South Coast Air Quality Management District to report back on the likelihood that such activities contributed to the 4.4-magnitude quake....

Organizers had issued fliers calling for an "emergency town hall" to confront a "crisis facing black Philadelphia: the demise of our neighborhoods." In gentrification, some neighborhoods are targeted for revitalization - but the new development leads to huge rent or property-tax increases that often force longtime residents out.

    NY Daily News ^ | 2/26/14 | Errol Louis
    Spike Lee’s obscenity-filled tirade about the gentrification of inner-city neighborhoods — caught on tape and posted online in all its mother-effing glory — perfectly captured the bitterness, confusion and circular logic that sends most conversations about New York’s ever-changing neighborhoods down a blind alley. Lee’s torrent of cussing and complaints mostly focused on how well-heeled white newcomers have allegedly ruined Fort Greene, where he grew up. Much of what he said was hilarious (“Have you seen Fort Greene Park in the morning? It’s like the mother-effing Westminster Dog Show!”). But some of it was downright offensive (“You can’t just come...

    NEW YORK — (TG) New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, acting swiftly in response to an emotional, expletive-littered denunciation of gentrification by perennially furious movie director Spike Lee, has issued an emergency directive ordering all refuse collected in the city to be dumped on up-and-coming Brooklyn enclave Fort Greene. The mayoral action is intended to address a number of concerns raised by Lee, a Fort Greene native, during a thunderous speech he delivered at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute on Tuesday.

    It’s interesting that the director of the richest oeuvre of black films in the history of the medium doesn’t understand what the Civil Rights revolution was for. In his expletive-laced comments about the gentrification of Fort Greene during an interview at the Pratt Institute, Spike Lee seemed to think that what we Overcame for was to be grouchy bigots. Basically, black people are getting paid more money than they’ve ever seen in their lives for their houses, and a once sketchy neighborhood is now quiet and pleasant. And this is a bad thing… why? Lee seems to think it’s somehow...

    Doesn’t Jason Biggs know that Twitchy is forever? Earlier this week, we called attention to the American Idiot’s knock on Christians and his vile, sexually degrading tweets about Paul Ryan, Janna Ryan and Ann Romney. We also highlighted the mounting pressure on Nickelodeon to fire the actor from his “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” voice gig. Biggs dismissed his critics by tweeting, “You know I put my dick in a pie, right?” And completely misreading the First Amendment, his wife, Jenny Mollen tweeted, “How weird would it be if we all had freedom of speech? But today all of the disgusting...

    Update 9/1: Biggs has deleted his tweet about sexually assaulting Janna Ryan, but other misogynistic tweets about her and Ann Romney remain. Nickelodeon is being pressured to fire actor Jason Biggs after he said he wanted to sexually assault Janna Ryan, the wife of vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. The American Pie actor made the comments on Twitter on Wednesday, earning criticism across the political spectrum and calls that he is unfit to provide the voice of Leonardo on Nickelodeon's new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. The situation brings up questions of free speech and personal responsibility in the public...

    They say that things can sometimes become stale in a marriage. But it is unlikely that many people resort to hiring prostitutes after just a year like American Pie star Jason Biggs, 33, and his wife Jenny Mollen. The actress, whose biggest role was as minor character Nina Ash in TV show Angel, wrote a lengthy blog about their sexual escapades on website The Smoking Jacket...

    Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB) has seen its viewership drop of late, meaning it can charge less money for the same commercial spot. So, the company’s solution has been simple: run more ads. At Nickelodeon, for example, viewership dropped by just under 30%, while Comedy Central has also lost a smaller number of viewers. Overall, the company increased the amount of air time rose by 9% in 2012, on top of a 7% rise the year before, The Wall Street Journal reports

    Twitchy reported earlier today that the most vile tweets from Jason Biggs’ Twitter feed had quietly disappeared, and now it seems there might be a very obvious reason why — Nickelodeon has begun tweeting Biggs’ Twitter handle in promotions for its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, for which Biggs provides a voice. That’s right: kids following Nickelodeon’s @TMNTMaster — an account which boasts nearly 2,400 followers — are literally one click away from the feed that introduced us to, well, this, not to mention a quick bit of Christian-bashing as a follow-up...

    Radar Online is reporting that a bunch of Hollywood’s elite are being sued in connection with their participation in high-stakes poker games. The civil complaint alleges that the money won by said Hollywood elite was actually money stolen by a hedge-fund manager from his clients to pay off his enormous gambling debts. According to the report, Toby “Spider-Man” Maguire was the big winner making $1,000,000 a month in winnings. Interesting. Maybe the next time Maguire is in D.C. for a photo-op with President Obama, he can explain to the president why he’s exempt from paying his fair share of taxes...

    Print this page WASHINGTON -- This week, Sen. Barack Obama found himself in new territory -- breaking from his bipartisan honeymoon and preaching the Democrats' party line on ethics. Whether the Illinois Democrat is deviating from his freshman game plan of staying above the fray or launching a new strategy will soon play out. But this much is clear: by taking a leading role in the Democrats' ethics reform campaign kicked off on Wednesday -- potentially key to his party reclaiming the House or Senate in November -- Obama has opened a new chapter in his Senate career. And that...

    New state guidelines threaten to yank hundreds of millions of dollars in tax credits from some of the city's biggest new developments, including the New York Times tower planned for Eighth Avenue in Midtown. Under the state's 2003 brownfield law, which gives tax breaks for cleaning and building on contaminated land, the Times is in line for up to $170 million in breaks.
