World’s Stupidest Chuck Todd Beginning To Doubt Fox News’s Commitment To Sparkle Motion

2 Comments
Thinkin’ face.

It had been just under 24 hours since news broke that Sean Hannity was Michael Cohen’s oft-spoken-of “third criminal accomplice client” when Fox News released a statement:

In case “While FOX News was unaware of Sean Hannity’s informal relationship with Michael Cohen and was surprised by the announcement in court yesterday, we have reviewed the matter and spoken to Sean and he continues to have our full support” is VERY CONFUSING to you, CNN’s most astute analyst Chris Cillizza translated the statement on Tweeter:

Rarely is the question asked, “The fuck WOULD we do without Chris Cillizza?” (Because nobody has ever thought of that question until just now.)

Think Progress flags a tweet from Cillizza’s fellow hall-of-famer in the League Of Unnecessary Journalists, Chuck Todd, who was asking the important questions before Fox released its statement:

“What is Fox News? Is it the best people? Am I brand new?” Christ, what a windsock.

After the statement was released, Todd went on his daily TV show “Sorry Katy Tur Isn’t Guest-Hosting Today, WAIT WHERE ARE YOU GOING” and expressed MANY SHOCKS that Fox News (!) didn’t commit to higher journalism standards (!!!) and at least slap Hannity on the wrist, for acting exactly like Hannity always acts. We’d find you a clip of that to watch, but we don’t want to.

Want to see more very serious journalists reassuring themselves that maybe this time Fox would do the right thing, before the statement came out? Luckily, Oliver Willis went ahead and started pre-LOLing at them hours after the original news broke:

Jesus Christ.

Anyway, Fox News thinks it is just great that Sean Hannity has spent the last week and a half doing OUTRAGE-GHAZI!!!!111! about the FBI raid of Michael Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, and that he’s had Cohen on TV many times too as one of his lie-guests, without disclosing to his viewers that Cohen is also his lawyer. Many standards! Such ethics!

It’s not that Fox News has never done anything to punish Sean Hannity for being Donald Trump’s sex fluffer, of course. One time they were like, “Hey Sean, stop doing commercials for Donald Trump’s campaign, because even WE can’t keep a straight face and pretend you’re a journalist right now.” Another time, they were like “OK we guess we’ll retract the Seth Rich Hillary MURDERRRRRRR story, since it is obviously a lie pulled out of somebody’s gross A-hole. We won’t get mad if Hannity keeps talking about it, though, because PFFFFFFT.”

Let’s sum up what we’ve learned in this post. Chuck Todd and Chris Cillizza are fucking idiots, Sean Hannity is a piece of shit, and Fox News is not a news network if you’re using any accepted English definition of the word “news,” oh wait, we already knew all that, HAHA SORRY FOR WASTING YOUR TIME BY TEACHING YOU NOTHING, Wonkette will do better next time.

Are you a fairly regular Wonkette reader and have had a nagging little voice for some time saying “you should throw Wonkette a buck every month”? We would surely appreciate it!

SmugMug acquires Flickr: Two passionate communities together at last.

1 Comment

SmugMug + Flickr together at last.

We are thrilled to announce that SmugMug has acquired Flickr. We couldn’t be more excited to unite two brands that share the same mission, passions, and values.

In a way, our communities existed long before our brands were established. Photographers have always found ways to connect with one another to share their passion, work, and inspiration. Both SmugMug and Flickr were born from a passion for photography and a mission to support the community we were already a part of.

For 15 years, SmugMug has built products that reflect exactly what we believe: that photography is the global language of storytelling. Flickr is the other side of the same coin. Since 2004, they’ve established themselves as a home where photographers can go to inspire and be inspired, to share, learn, meet new friends, and share a piece of the soul that unites us all: storytelling.

Together we are home to the creators, the shutter pressers, the doers and makers. We’re home to you. Home is where you can hang your hat and kick up your feet. It’s also where you can go to work on your passion. Relax. Reload. Refine. Bring your authentic self. Dare to risk and grow.

Join us.

Learn more about the acquisition and our future together.

Have more questions? We’ve got plenty of answers.

Shit. He was in Asheville?

It appears that Harry Anderson has passed away.  Although he had a number of memorable roles, his key contribution was as Judge Harold T. Stone in Night Court, a show that almost certainly deserves a more prominent space in the history of television comedy than it has received (the Night Court episode of 30 Rock was not particularly good, by the way; I love both shows, but it just didn’t work). It was certainly my favorite comedyas a kid.

Anderson will be missed terribly.
