What does Philadelphia radio have against the Jews?
For years, we Christ Killers have been subjected to non-stop Christmas music, beginning before Thanksgiving and continuing through December 25th. If that’s not tedious enough, it feels like it starts earlier every season. Hell, why not Labor Day?
“You can always switch stations, Shoshanna,” I can hear you thinking. Of course I can, Mary, but there is a larger issue in play: Where is the 24-hour-a-day Chanukah music? Read more »
Thanksgiving dinner chez Cheney could be an awkward affair this year.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s daughters are in a nasty public feud over same-sex marriage. Liz is out (pardon the pun) campaigning against the issue in her Wyoming Senate race. Mary, her kid sister, has a wife and two young children.
Talk about a tense turkeyfest.
This is our imagined scenario for Thursday: Read more »
A colossal string of clusterfucks over the past week triggered a litany of public apologies. As luck would have it, the mea culpas were as bad as the screw ups. The apologies were too late, too vague, or too blatantly insincere to assuage anybody.

Another day. Another tragedy. Another media fuckup.

In an unmistakable sign that we’ve evolved into a true post-gay culture, Gawker’s so-called outing of Smith last week drew a collective yawn from the media. Imagine, a gay anchor on the Red State network of choice, and barely a peep! Read more »
The tragic kabuki dance being played out by the owners of the Philadelphia Inquirer shares a dubious distinction with the Inky staff – all the major players are men.
Interstate General Media, which has title to the Inquirer, Daily News and philly.com, is in a raging internecine cockfight over which roosters will rule the Inky newsroom. IGM had pledged complete editorial autonomy when it bought the business in April 2012.
All this noise about the Washington Redskins’ name makes me want to feather up and hit the warpath.
The latest politically correct paleface to join the drumbeat is NBC sportscaster Bob Costas, who did his bit during halftime of the Redskins-Cowboys game on Sunday Night Football. Costas broke no new ground, opining that “Redskins” was a slur to Native Americans and should be changed.
