After All That, Ratings for The View Are Down

To some, The View is simply a daytime talk show to fold laundry to. To others, it is a modern day Shakespearean play that we're watching unfold in real time. The show has had its comedic moments, at times it feels like a tragedy and there's even a bit of romance. And now, we have yet another page in saga of 4-5 women… » 10/22/14 6:00pm Today 6:00pm

​Gap's Blah 'Dress Normal' Campaign Doesn't Get the Irony of Normcore

Normcore strikes again, trampling yet another victim under its Nike socks/Adidas slippers-clad feet. After launching what was expected to be a successful "Dress Normal" campaign, Gap is now offering their collection at a fraction of the price.

Sydney Leathers Fact-Checks Anthony Weiner's Politico Interview

Yesterday, I saw a piece about Anthony Weiner on Politico. Within this piece, Anthony announced his departure from politics as his own decision, long in the works.
