In November I responded to one of Seth Rogen’s tweets that invited fans to watch his latest comedy “The Interview” with him over beer and popcorn. Rogen, beer, and popcorn all sounded like a good time to me, so needless to say- I was in.

Last week, Sean Hannity went on his show on Fox News to discuss the meeting between New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and rapper/mogul/husband to Beyonce, Jay Z. Strangely enough, Hannity doesn’t introduce Jay Z how we would best know him, but as “A guy that admits that he sold crack and was a drug dealer and actually shot somebody." Luckily, Jon Stewart and Jessica Williams exist to call out Hannity on his bullshit — and they did just that in last ... Read More
