Happy Friday. Here’s what’s going on in the world — or at least on the internet — that you can use to pass the time until you get to start your weekend.
1. All the talent that NBC has unceremoniously dumped over the years that’s actually been, you know, talented and somehow David Gregory holds onto a gig he’s been universally panned for. You know, I spent 20 years doing it and sometimes I still don’t understand television. On the other hand, this is great news for John McCain.
2. This probably won’t surprise you at all, but Fox News has figured out a way to bring the story of the Missing Malaysia Airlines flight back to Benghazi and the phony IRS scandal.
That last statement by the way is like a Möbius strip of pure stupid.
3. Remember the line in Scarface where Tony tells dirty cop Mel, who’s extorting money out of him, “How do I know you’re the last cop I’m gonna have to grease?” That’s kind of what Netflix is saying right now to Comcast and Verizon.
4. The case was quickly reexamined and just as quickly reconsigned to history, but we got some fascinating new photos out of it. If you imagined that there would be cigarettes and heroin needles in the room where Kurt Cobain killed himself, now you can pat yourself on the back almost 20 years to the day after his suicide.
5. I wonder what this says about the popularity of that song from the late 90s about girls who wear Abercrombie & Fitch.
Chez Pazienza was the beating heart of The Daily Banter, sadly passing away on February 25, 2017. His voice remains ever present at the Banter, and his influence as powerful as ever.
