Bill Maher had a little fun – OK, a lot of fun – Friday night at the expense of Sen. Joe Manchin, the conservative Democrat from West Virginia, who is irking his colleagues on the left by opposing the party’s sweeping election bill. Although Maher was sympathetic to the senator because he’s “in a state that is the Trumpiest state in the nation” — 69% of voters in West Virginia went for Donald Trump – the “Real Time” host thought there was no time like the present for a “24 Things You Didn’t Know

Forget it, Jake — it’s late-stage capitalism. Director Steven Soderbergh has been following the money throughout his career, going at least as far back as the “Ocean’s” movies, where financial institutions take a hit at the hands of the strivers and scrabblers. Since returning from his “retirement” from movies, he’s offered stories as disparate as “High Flying Bird,” which suggests the possibility of labor wresting control from management, and “The Laundromat,” a messy exposé of shell companies
Rapper Azealia Banks responded to a Juneteenth hot take from Candace Owens with an elaborate slavery fantasy and a warning: “Tread lightly sis.” Banks’ comments on Friday came in response to Owens’ proclamation that “Juneteenth is soooo lame.” Earlier in the week, the conservative commentator decried President Joe Biden’s move to declare the June 19 a federal holiday as “segregation,” saying she would be celebrating “July 4th and July 4th only.” “According to this logic, on July 4, 1776, you wou

The practice of creating origin stories for well-known characters that are not the leading role in a narrative is reaching a fever pitch these days, but “Ratched” — Netflix’s 2020 series starring Sarah Paulson (above) as the younger, more stylish version of “One Flew the Cuckoo’s Nest” harridan nurse – might have kickstarted the craze given how much you could wring from such a scrupulous character. “My biggest challenge was we had so much rich material”, said series editor Shelly Westerman, who
Dave Portnoy, the founder of the popular sports pop culture website Barstool Sports, had his Twitter account suspended for a brief period on Friday night. It’s unclear what Portnoy did to warrant the suspension. A rep for Twitter would not comment on the suspension except to say “the account you reference has been reinstated.” His Twitter page was suspended but then was reinstated a short time later, albeit without his followers or verification. For the duration of the suspension, his profile pa
There have been many documentaries about the gay liberation movement, equal rights and same-sex liberties for the queer community and the underrepresented and often obscured plight of transgender individuals, many of them tied to the decades-long AIDS crisis. But there has never been a doc that encapsulates all of them at once that also manages to be uplifting and non-foreboding as well — until “Pride.” FX’s six-episode nonfiction series “Pride” covers these issues and much more.
