Shame on ‘Ray Donovan’ for Treating Animal Cruelty as Set Dressing (Guest Blog)

55 minutes ago

It’s rare when I feel so invested in a cable series that I’m offended by a single scene to a point of reacting as I am about to. Last night, Showtime’s magnificent series “Ray Donovan” showed a pit bull dead and tortured, infested with flies, hanging outside a white-trash hovel. I was offended to the core. These are strange times. There isn’t a day that goes by where an image of a tortured animal jumps out of a seemingly well-meaning Facebook or Instagram post. The sickness is pervasive — individuals who feel they have to show the carnage of innocence. »

2 hours ago

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich took to Twitter to praise Donald Trump’s joint press conference with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and it’s getting attention online for its many typos. Gingrich misspelled five of the first seven words of his tweet; the words he correctly spelled are “was” and “in.” It seems he was trying to say “President Trump was remarkably strong in his joint press event with Sen.

2 hours ago

Normally when we decide whether a movie is “good” we use arbitrary qualifications like “does it say anything meaningful” or “does it make sense”. But I’m into that.
