News reporters and anchors make their jobs seem easy as they read the teleprompter and deliver the news. But sometimes, they have to give their attention to too many directions and …well…mistakes can happen…on the air.
According to the Daily Mail, Saginaw, Michigan’s ABC 12 News anchor Siobhan Riley, was innocently delivering the traffic report when she drew a few too many loops on the screen to exhibit the local traffic patterns. The electronic pen got ahead of her and she didn’t realize until she was finished that she was looking at a penis-shaped traffic pattern on the screen. (more…)

BET has made major changes since being sold to Viacom. The channel’s original programming was upgraded and they’ve been on the receiving end of their best ratings ever.
“The Game” is one of the shows obtained by the network after the show was cancelled on the CW. But, Stacey Mattocks, a one-woman marketing team that was passionate about seeing the show return to television, is one of the biggest reasons BET turned their attention to acquiring the show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Facebook page she created in 2008, in an effort to galvanize fan support for the show and the show’s return had reached 750,000 likes when BET decided to pick up the show.
But now that ‘The Game’ is doing so well–opened on BET with 7.7 million viewers– it appears, that BET doesn’t want to repay her for her services. In fact, detailed in a new lawsuit that Mattock is pursuing against the entertainment giant, they wanted to underpay her and give her a deal for the Facebook page that was beneath the standards for her services, according to her valuation research.

Many of Zimmerman’s supporters along with his defense attorneys have tried to discredit and/or assassinate the character of Trayvon Martin in order to vilify him.
Like the rest of us more evolved thinkers with common sense and logic on our side, Martin Bashir took issue with an additional attack on Trayvon Martin. It ins’t enough that he was killed, they wanted to throw the dirt on his coffin. It wasn’t enough that he lost his life to a depraved bigot, who even referred to him as a “f***ing coon” for all the world to hear on the audiotape of his 911 call. No! They called him every thug imaginable for minor teenage offenses that hurt no one, like wearing “gold teeth” and having marijuana residue in his bag. (more…)

It’s obvious that the “dozens” came from a negative place in history and it should’ve remained there, but it graduated on through the years to rap battles and so on. But now…THERE HAS BEEN A BREAKTHROUGH!!
The “yo mama” jokes of old have received an uplifting makeover via Kmart’s new free layaway commercial with children on a playground checking out each other’s new duds for the school year.
Now we all thought that the jokes were funny because someone would have the funniest, but ugliest, comments about someone’s mother that usually mentioned her being “fat” or “stupid.” But not this time. (more…)

In the new version of the Lone Ranger that is presently in theaters, Johnny Depp portrays the dynamic native american sidekick, Tonto.

Most mothers think they have given their child a name that they can be proud of. Some names have nostalgic or honorable meaning because they are taking on the name of a relative or parent. But, then you have names that, well…..
Anyway, no matter what a child’s name is it has no bearing whatsoever on who the child is…or their parents. Kate Hopkins is a British reality TV star that does not approve of her children interacting with or having a relationship of any kind with a child with what she calls a “low class” name like Tyler, Charmaine, Chantelle and Chardonnay. She believes that their names say something about their parents status and their intellect, yet her own children are named: Poppy, Maximillian, and India! (more…)
