    <p>Rose McGowan called out actresses who plan to wear black gowns to the Golden Globes to protest gender inequality.</p> <p>The actress took to Twitter on Saturday, writing, "Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa." Marchesa, a womenswear company, was founded by Georgina Chapman, Harvey Weinstein's ex-wife. Weinstein himself is presumably the "Pig Monster" in McGowan's tweet.</p>

    Secular media outlets are taking interest in the country's increasingly conservative, Catholic directionPoland’s bishops’ conference has launched an English-language Twitter account, as international interest in the country and the Catholic Church there continues to grow. “We are observing a lot of internet interest about the Church in Poland from people living abroad, which is why we want to enable them to access the content of our Twitter posts in the English language,” said spokesman Fr Paweł Ryteł-Andrianik. The @ChurchinPoland account will post information about events in the country’s Catholic Church, comments from the bishop’s conference, and tweets concerning significant Church...
  • The true extent of Russian meddling in Brexit remains murky

    In late October, Chair of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee Damian Collins called upon Facebook and Twitter to report back with any evidence of Russian meddling in the UK's vote to leave the EU. It's an evolution of the committee's inquiry into the problem of fake news, which Collins considers a pretty serious "threat to democracy." Responses from Facebook and Twitter have landed this week, and if you haven't been following along, it's safe to say Collins isn't particularly impressed with how deep the social networks are digging to identify the true scale of political misinformation and...

    Yeah, good luck with that. The perpetual outrage machine that is the left's pathological loathing for President Trump keeps reaching new lows in absurdity, albeit only on an hourly basis. Plenty of liberals have labeled Trump's tweet slamming Democrat Senator and potential 2020 opponent Kirsten Gillibrand as "sexual harassment." But liberal radio host Thom Hartmann went beyond that and described it -- I'm not making this up -- as grounds for impeachment.Here's Hartmann suggesting this during a conversation with a caller to his show on Tuesday -- Your browser does not support the audio element.

    The American Meteor Society (AMS) took to Twitter on December 7 to confirm that what he saw was in fact, a meteor. AMS received reports from 146 people about the fireball event. The society noted it was primarily visible from Pennsylvania, but eyewitness accounts were also reported from twelve other states: New York, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Delaware, Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Island, West Virginia, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Washington, DC.

    CNN says Anderson Cooper’s Twitter account was hacked after a since-removed tweet from his handle called the president a “tool” and a “pathetic loser” following Democrat Doug Jones win in Alabama’s Senate election. The cable network tweeted early Wednesday that “someone gained access” to Anderson’s account and sent the tweet to the president. “We’re working with Twitter to secure the account,” it said. …

    “Apprentice” star turned White House official Omarosa Manigault Newman will leave the Trump administration next month, according to the White House. “Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “Her departure will not be effective until January 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.”

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders recently confirmed whispers that former reality star Omarosa Manigault-Newman will soon be leaving the Trump administration, telling The Associated Press that her official resignation will become effective Jan. 20. While it may seem like a clean break one year after the inauguration, journalist April Ryan claims Manigault-Newman didn’t resign, but was fired, and didn’t take the news very well. “According to multiple sources Omarosa did not resign. She was even escorted out of [the] building and off campus,” tweeted the White House reporter. She went on to say the 43-year-old is alleged to...

    "HELP! Donald Trump has infected my mind and I can't get him out!!!" That should have been the title of Nick Bilton's article in the December 11 Vanity Fair. Instead his article is titled WILL DONALD TRUMP TAKE FACEBOOK AND TWITTER DOWN WITH HIM? even though he makes virtually no case for this premise. In fact it is practically invisible as Bilton uses that fake premise which he almost totally ignores to launch into a rant about Trump being obsessed with himself while revealing that it is Bilton himself who is obsessed by Trump. As if to emphasize the point,...

    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders isn't a big fan of the media. Which is, of course, her right. The relationship between any White House and any press corps tasked with covering that White House is almost always fraught and fractious. But, on Monday, Sanders made an accusation that went way, way beyond the pale of the usual give and take between White House and press corps. Here's what she said: "There's a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people. Something that happens regularly. You can't say -- I'm not done. You can't say...

    In the video, posted to Handler’s Twitter account, comedian Fortune Feimster wears a wig in an attempt to resemble Sanders as she runs through an exaggerated beauty routine. “I used to not know what foundation was, but our great president was kind enough to take me to a Sephora, and he said to the boy, ‘Hey, you see that fella over there? Make him a woman,'” Feimster-as-Sanders says in one of many digs at the press secretary’s looks in the short clip.

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was vocal on Twitter Sunday, issuing biting criticism of former President Barack Obama. In Sanders’ typically blunt vernacular, she claimed that President Obama did not deserve any credit for the apparent improvement in the economy. However, while the economy is doing well and Trump largely deserves praise, Americans would be wise to pay attention the labor force participation rate.  Since the election "the jobless rate for African Americans dropped from 8% to 7.3%, while for Hispanics it fell from 5.7% to 4.7%...and with Trump's big tax cuts on the way, job growth isn't likely...

    "For those who don’t remember it, Journolist was just a listserv created by Ezra Klein. The list was invitation only and was mostly made up of progressive journalists. In theory, the list was a kind of digital water cooler where like-minded people could talk to others in the field. That may have been all it was much of the time, but when candidate Obama got in trouble in 2008, it also became a place for partisans to discuss a coordinated media strategy." When Kevin Drum (Mother Jones) argued that wasn’t the kind of campaign Obama wanted to run, Ackerman replied,...
