    Shortly after comments about Roseanne Barr, Louis C.K. and the #MeToo movement made during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter sparked controversy online, comedian Norm Macdonald has issued an apology. "Roseanne and Louis have both been very good friends of mine for many years," Macdonald tweeted Tuesday evening. "They both made terrible mistakes and I would never defend their actions. If my words sounded like I was minimizing the pain that their victims feel to this day, I am deeply sorry." Macdonald, who has a new show on Netflix titled Norm Macdonald Has a Show debuting this Friday, drew criticism...

    Sarah Silverman addressed Louis C.K.’s sexual misconduct in the opening of this week’s episode of her Hulu series “I Love You, America.” “This recent calling out of sexual assault has been a long time coming,” Silverman said. “It’s good. It’s like cutting out tumors: it’s messy, and it’s complicated, and it is going to hurt, but it’s necessary and we’ll all be healthier for it. And it sucks. And some of our heroes will be taken down and we will discover bad things about people we like, or in some cases, people we love.” Silverman was clearly emotional as she...

    Best part of the show, I swear, is Louie Anderson. Subtle undertow of funny, he pulls it off. He has got to be channeling his mom and grandma.

    John McCain took a swipe at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert in an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams Wednesday night. During the interview, Williams brought up a statement Gohmert made last week at the Values Voter Summit claiming that the Republican Arizona senator supports al Qaida. Speaking at an event at the conservative conference, Gohmert referred to McCain as a “guy who’s been to Syria and supported al Qaida and rebels.” McCain told Williams that it isn’t worth responding to someone who “has no intelligence.” “Sometimes… comments like that are made out of malice, but if someone has no intelligence...

    Scientists have uncovered remarkably preserved fossils – including feathers and webbed feet – of the oldest known relatives of modern birds, which also shores up the theory that birds evolved from aquatic environments. Little is known about birds from the age of dinosaurs, since fossils that date back to the early Cretaceous Period – some 105 to 115 million years ago – are have rarely been found, the discovery reported in Friday's issue of the journal Science is particularly exciting for those trying to fill gaps in the avian family tree. “I was totally blown away. I was stunned,” said...

    Five fossil specimens of a near-modern bird found in the Gansu Province of northwestern China show that early birds likely evolved in an aquatic environment, according to a study reported today in the journal Science. Their findings suggest that these early modern birds were much like the ducks or loons found today. Gansus yumenesis, which lived some 105 to 115 million years ago during the Early Cretaceous period, took modern birds through a watery path out of the dinosaur lineage. The report was co-authored by Peter Dodson of the University of Pennsylvania and his former students Hai-lu You of the...

    Just last week, Muslim extremists in northern Nigeria started a bloody ruckus that resulted in the deaths of more than a dozen people. Their actions were the latest examples of a hysteric strain in the Islamic community that has put the world’s head in a spin. For lack of a better term, what we mean by “the civilized world” has been stupefied by the violent reactions to a Danish cartoon depicting the prophet Muhammad in an unflattering way. This hysteria has spread from continent to continent, showing itself to maintain absolute disdain for freedom of speech or separation of church...
