Bob Schieffer, the elderly moderator of CBS's Face the Nation, once dismissed Edward Snowden as "just a narcissistic young man who has decided he is smarter than the rest of us." Yesterday, Schieffer once again addressed the issues of privacy and the NSA. His performance was an embarrassment to journalism.
Remember when, before iPods, et al. became ubiquitous, record stores—like the Virgin Megastore in Chicago, for example—had those cool listening stations that allowed you to jam out to your favorite tune in public? Those were the days.
"You know that was a terrible mess," said Bruno Tonioli after Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's routine—an Argentine Tango—on tonight's Dancing with the Stars. And, honestly? It was a secondhand embarrassment-inducing mess. Watch inside. Update: Bristol Palin gets sexy!
Oy. There really isn't a good way to describe how painful these six minutes are—really. Here are soon-to-be-non-BFFs Abby and Lisa performing "That's My Goal" on this week's X Factor. Oh, also: screaming, swearing, sneering, snarking, and punching!
Last night, America as a whole was introduced to Louisiana Governor and up-and-coming Republican superstar Bobby Jindal. And they couldn't stop giggling at him.
The election is over, so bring on last season's political liabilities! Remember Mark Foley? He was the Republican Congressman from Florida who liked steamroom, and also young male congressional pages. Some, uh, inappropriate instant messenger exchanges with one of those young men came to light, and then the Republicans lost the 2006 mid-term elections. Foley said he was an alcoholic who'd been turned gay by a molesting priest as a child, resigned, and checked into rehab, never to be heard from again, until after the 2008 elections were safely over. Now he's opening up to the Associated Press, because he needs to tell his side of the story. His side of the story is sad and creepy.
