Sir Sidney L. Poitier KBE was a Bahamian-American actor, film director, activist, and the first black actor to win an Oscar.

Of all the great scenes in all the great films he starred in, this scene from the 1967 classic, “In The Heat of the Night,” is the greatest- and the BLACKEST- in Hollywood history. https://twitter.com/MichaelCoard/status/1479491337166667788?s=20

How well does FOX Rupert Murdoch compare to Ebenezer Scrooge, the protagonist of Charles Dickens' 1843 A Christmas Carol?

At the beginning of the novella, Scrooge is cold-hearted miserable. The tale of his redemption by three spirits has become a defining tale of the Christmas holiday in the English-speaking world. Scrooge is a mean and miserly person.

Did Wallace leave fake news for Cable News Network? Did #ChrisWallace get tired of the crazy sauce served at Faux Snooze?

The political media world has been electrified by Chris Wallace’s surprise announcement that he’s leaving Fox News effective immediately.

I remember when we worked at NBC News. He was a PIA sometimes. Pain in the butt, and when I met his old man Mike, I told him so, and his reply was, well I guess you you know him well.
