CNN’s Chris Cuomo Blasts Trump for ‘Disrespecting’ Dead Journalists

CNN

In the final moments of his first primetime hour on Monday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo delivered a sharp rebuke of the Trump administration’s decision not to lower flags to half-mast in memory of the five journalists killed in last week’s mass shooting at the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland.

Cuomo began by noting that the shooting not only took lives and “shattered families” but also “added another layer of shame on all lawmakers for not doing something to stop the damn shootings.” As the host put it, recent mass shootings in Las Vegas and Parkland “warranted” flags being lowered outside federal building, so why not this one?

“I’m afraid I know the answer,” Cuomo said. “And it’s because President Trump doesn’t like the media.”

[Breaking] Al Sharpton Blasts Supreme Court Decision to Uphold Muslim Travel Ban

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court ruled to allow the Trump administration to continue a travel ban restricting entry from seven countries including Iran, North Korea, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Venezuela, reports CNN and other news outlets.

Rev. Al Sharpton condemned the ruling through a statement released by the National Action Network:

“Today’s Supreme Court decision marks another outrageous step backwards for religious and racial justice around the world. The Supreme Court’s decision to the anti-Muslim bias clearly apparent in this policy is unfathomable—the ban is rooted in islamophobia and has been phonily sold to the American public for the sake of ‘security.’

“Trump has made it clear time and time again he wants a migration ban on individuals from all Muslim countries. We at NAN have no patience for the ongoing efforts by this administration to undermine religious freedom, a basic building block of our nation. We will push back at every step and every available juncture on any whiff of intolerance and prejudice.”

Since early 2017, the administration has attempted to enact a travel ban against mostly Muslim nations, several times. Each time, the action was struck down by federal judges, reports ABC News. The latest ban, which is the one the court upheld, was the result of a signed Executive Order in September.

The ruling comes on the heels of a week of outrage and protests over the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy. The administration began prosecuting as many people crossing the border as possible. Many of these migrants cross the border with children. The Washington Post explains, when the adults are prosecuted, they are taken into Department of Homeland Security (DHS) custody. The children are separated from the adults, their parents, in most cases, and are placed in internment centers or “tender age” shelters since children cannot be detained by DHS.

With much of the public outraged over the detainment of children, President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order to stop the separation of children and parents but said zero-tolerance would continue.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy Blasts Google for Linking California GOP to Nazism

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy slammed Google on Thursday for listing “Nazism” as one of the ideologies of the California Republican Party.

“Dear @Google, This is a disgrace,” McCarthy tweeted along with an image of a Google search result showing Nazism as an ideology of the California GOP.

In another tweet, McCarthy also called the results “the latest incident in a disturbing trend to slander conservatives.”

The reference to Nazism appeared in Google’s “knowledge panel,” which offers summarized search results drawn from a number of sources including Wikipedia. The results changed to eliminate the ideologies during the day on Thursday, according to Vice News, after the website reached out to ask Google about the controversy.

A Google spokesperson told the site it does not politicize search results and that the “Nazism” listing for the California Republican Party was not implemented by a Google employee.

“We regret that vandalism on Wikipedia briefly appeared on our search results. This was not the the result of a manual change by Google,” a Google Communications account tweeted in response to McCarthy. “We have systems in place that catch vandalism before it impacts search results, but occasionally errors get through, and that happened here.”

Still, other conservatives expressed anger at the situation as well. Donald Trump Jr. tweeted his displeasure, and linked the Google results to another tech complaint he had this month. He told his followers last week that Instagram provided a warning message saying posts with his name often “encourage” harmful behavior.

This latest tech controversy comes shortly after the Republican National Committee and President Donald Trump’s reelection committee sent a letter May 17 asking Facebook and Twitter to address political bias on their social media platforms.

Well over a dozen advertisers pulled ads from The Ingraham Angle following her tweet mocking Parkland shooting victim and 17-year-old gun control activist David Hogg’s college rejection letters.

After a weeklong hiatus from the show, Ingraham returned on Monday. Although she did not address her mockery of Hogg, she railed against “speech czars” on the left who she claimed wanted to silence politically disagreeable ideas.

Elon Musk Blasts Harvard’s Steven Pinker Over Comments Dismissing the Threat of Artificial Intelligence

Elon Musk took to Twitter this week to bemoan comments, made by Harvard professor Steven Pinker, that were dismissive of Musk’s many warnings about the dangers of artificial intelligence.

Musk’s smackdown came in response to statements Pinker made on a Wired podcast released a few days prior. At one point Pinker said that “if Elon Musk was really serious about the AI threat he’d stop building those self-driving cars, which are the first kind of advanced AI that we’re going to see.” He then pointed out that Musk isn’t worried about his cars deciding to “make a beeline across sidewalks and parks, mowing people down”.

Pinker’s statement was off-the-cuff, but deeply silly on the face of it. Musk’s frequent warnings about the dangers of artificial intelligence have touched on their possible use to control weapons or manipulate information to gin up global conflict. The physicist Steven Hawking, in a similar vein, has warned that AI could “supersede” humans when they exceed our biological intelligence.

Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s technology newsletter.

Those concerns are about what’s known as “general” artificial intelligence – systems able to replicate all human decision making. Systems like Tesla’s Autopilot, the AlphaGo gaming bot, and Facebook’s newsfeed algorithm are something quite different – “narrow” AI systems designed to handle one discrete task.

Developing Autopilot might make some contributions to developing general A.I., and it certainly raises moral questions about how we train machines. But, as Musk points out, even a completely perfect self-driving car would have nothing remotely resembling a fully enabled ‘mind’ that could decide to either marginalize or hurt humans.

So the fact that a self-driving Tesla is specifically designed not to murder people isn’t very relevant to the question of whether a machine intelligence might someday decide to. Further, it does nothing to dispense with the worries of organizations like the Electronic Frontier Foundation that limited A.I. systems designed for hacking and social manipulation are no more than a few years away.

Pinker, it must be pointed out, is not a technologist, but a psychologist and linguist. His early work developed the idea that language is an innate human ability forged by evolution – a position that itself has recently come under renewed scrutiny. Pinker’s more recent work has praised science, reason, and the march of technology – but he might want to take a harder look at some of the risks.

Black Twitter Blasts Nivea For Skin-Lightening Lotion Ad

NIVEA Celebrates National PDA Day In New York City's Herald Square

Source: Thos Robinson / Getty

Clearly Nivea didn’t learn a damn thing from Dove’s little fiasco over a week ago!

On Wednesday, a commercial and print ad surfaced online featuring a new skin lightening lotion the body care company sells in Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon and Senegal, The New York Post reported.

The “Natural Fairness Lotion” ad tells Black women that their product can help “restore her skin to its natural fairness.”

“Now, I have visibly fairer skin, making me feel younger,” the Black model says.

Welp!

London entrepreneur William Adoasi slammed the TV commercial, sharing a clip of it online: “This is why Black businesses need to rise up and cater for our needs.”

Take a look at this nonsense for yourself:

And this one:

People swiftly took to Twitter to blast this anti-Black sentiment and snatch Nivea’s edges all the way off:

Folks also pointed out that this is a complicated issue.

Skin bleaching is an estimated $ 20 billion dollar industry around the world and is especially popular in African, Asian and Caribbean countries. According to Business Insider, 70 percent of women in Nigeria alone are using a lightening product. To be clear: there’s a high demand for a product like this one:

But regardless of the existence of colorism and the sad desire for lighter skin, Nivea shouldn’t be exploiting that for a buck and DEFINITELY not at the expense of African/Black women.

Not surprisingly, this isn’t Nivea’s first offensive ad. Earlier this year we reported that the company dropped a questionable ad that equated “white” with “purity.”

The ad read: “Keep it clean, keep bright. Don’t let anything ruin it, #Invisible.”

Yeah, they tried it.

Nivea nor their parent Beiersdorf have released a public statement about this current controversy.

What do you think about the skin bleaching ad?

Porn Blasts On Huge Screen At Train Station During Rush Hour

Things really went off the rails at Union Station in Washington D.C. Monday when a video screen meant to play ads started showing porn instead.

The porn suddenly appeared on the digital screen in the Main Hall around 5:30 p.m. and lasted about three minutes ― or about 2.5 minutes longer than the typical porn viewer.

A bystander recorded the explicit footage, which appeared to be streaming from the Pornhub website, according to the Washington Post.

One woman who witnessed the accidental porn told the paper it left her speechless.

“I couldn’t believe this was happening in public and especially during rush hour,” the woman told the paper. “I mean, it was really explicit porn being shown on this huge screen and no one could turn it off.” 

Beverly Swaim-Staley, president and CEO of the Union Station Redevelopment Corporation, said the video screen is supposed to display ads, announcements and names of businesses in the station.

She suspects the screen was hacked, but is still investigating.

“With all this new technology comes a lot of things we don’t expect,” she told NBC Washington.

Swaim Staley says the screen has since been shut down until it can be assured no other public displays of explicit activity will happen again.

“They’re new directories, new technologies that they’ve been testing, and obviously they need to find out how this incident occurred,” she told WMAL TV.

George Clooney Blasts Donald Trump Over Calling Meryl Streep ‘Overrated’

George Clooney is weighing in on President-elect Donald Trump’s comments about Meryl Streep following her politically charged speech at the Golden Globes.

Trump lashed out at the actress via Twitter on Monday after she criticized him in her passionate Golden Globes speech about empathy Sunday night. In response, Trump called her “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.”

Clooney, a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter and former costar of Streep’s, addressed the controversy at a reception hosted by The Clooney Foundation for Justice on Monday. The event was in support of the Netflix documentary White Helmets about the work done by heroic Syrians to help those hit by bombings in the country.

“I’ve always said that about Meryl,” Clooney told PEOPLE sarcastically. “She’s maybe the most overrated actress of all-time. She and I worked together on Fantastic Mr. Fox as husband and wife and I will tell you even as a fox, a female fox, she’s overrated,” he said with a smile. “Aren’t you supposed to be running the country?” he asked Trump rhetorically.

Asked about bringing his star power to causes, Clooney told PEOPLE, “The only reason that people who are well known should be involved in these kinds of things is when no one knows about them.”

He explained, “I remember getting involved in Darfur in 2005-ish and part of the reason was that it wasn’t being talked about. I can’t change policy, but I can make things louder. I can help them make it louder — they’re the filmmakers, the brave ones and the White Helmets are the heroes, so if I can help them out at all and people can know about it, in any way possible, then that’s a good use of celebrity, I think.”

Addressing the reception following a screening of the harrowing film in a Central London hotel, he thanked the filmmakers, director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara. 

“The reality is that bad things happen when the lights have been turned off. That’s what the bad guys want,” Clooney said. “You have to have the lights on, and show what this really is, and show that these are human beings and not names and statistics. They are living and surviving and caring for one another. What you are doing is spectacular. Thank you for this.”

Despite the desperate situation in Syria, Clooney concluded his speech on a hopeful note. “The reality is that the vast majority of human beings are kind and want what’s best for their neighbors, for their children, for their families and also what’s best for their neighbors and people they don’t even know,” he said.

“That is the norm, that’s what’s ordinary and we forget that sometimes,” added the actor. “What is extraordinary is these people who put on White Helmets and run towards violence while everyone else is running away from it. Where there is no other structure or society, they are there to protect. And they risk their lives to do it. First and foremost they are heroes.”

Khloe Kardashian Blasts Liposuction Rumors, Says ‘I Bust My Ass’ In The Gym Five Days A Week

If you follow Khloe Kardashian on Instagram, you know she spends a lot of time in the gym. The 30-year-old is seriously proud of all the hard work that has gone into her body transformation, which is why you can’t blame the woman for being sick and tired of rumors saying she cut corners to get her fab figure.

On Tuesday, Kardashian took to Twitter to blast haters spreading rumors that she’d gotten liposuction.

Back in February, Kardashian celebrated the emergence of what she called her “baby abs” and wrote about her ongoing relationship with the gym:

My fitness journey will be a life long journey. Fitness is not about being better than someone else. It’s about being better than you used to be. I’m not where I want to be and who knows if I ever will be,”she wrote.But I am healthier than ever and due to my consistent workouts, I am slowly seeing results. Hi baby abs !! I see you!!! I hope to meet your other ab friends soon (yes I’m talking to my muscles. I’ve never met most of them before).

Looking back at pictures of myself I didn’t realize at the time how unhealthy my lifestyle actually was. People love to call me the fat one but as weird as it sounds I still don’t think I would consider myself fat back then. Definitely overweight and unhealthy, yes. About two years ago I decided to turn to fitness as a form of therapy and as a stress reliever. I started slow and eventually I started working out 4 to 5 days a week. We all have to start somewhere and doing something is better than nothing at all. Start small so you don’t get discouraged and give up. Remember it is all about consistency. There are no quick fixes if you want long-term results. Working out is a huge part of my life now. I genuinely enjoy sweating out my frustrations and living a healthier life. My workouts are not all about vanity. They are about clarity for my mind and soul. We all have different journeys in life, make sure your journey is for you and you alone. Remember in the end the turtle won the race. Slow and steady. dedication and tenacity.

John Oliver Blasts UK’s Labour Party For Targeting Women Voters With ‘Barbie Bus’

Pet the pretty princess pony!

With a U.K. election in May, political parties are battling over female voters. The Conservative Party has been accused of generally ignoring women voters, giving the Labour Party an opportunity to gain their support, which they should be able to do easily, as long as they don’t decide to campaign for women voters with a patronizing pink bus. They did? Oh …

On Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver took the Labour Party to task for the embarrassing political maneuver, and the equally embarrassing attempts to cover up the political fallout that ensued.

“It is a little insulting that you’re trying to appeal to women adult voters the same way that Mattel attempts to appeal to 8-year-olds,” said Oliver. “And at least Barbie’s pink bus had the good sense to unfold into a sweet hot tub and party den combo.”

Oliver offered the Labour Party a commercial of his own that he believes will fix the political damage done by what’s being called the “Barbie bus.”

Why, yes, it does involve a pretty princess pony!

“Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” airs Sunday at 11:00 p.m. ET on HBO.

Bill Maher Blasts Fear-Mongering Over ISIS: ‘United States Of Pants-Shitters’ Should Be More Afraid Of Monsanto

Bill Maher took on America’s latest march to war during the final minutes of “Real Time” on Friday, arguing that the fear of ISIS has been blown out of proportion. “They’re selling terror and boy are we buying,” he jabbed.

After calling out conservative war hawks like Lindsey Graham, “the Senate’s own Blanche DuBois,” Maher made a provocative point about why the disturbing videos of journalists being beheaded by ISIS don’t justify the fear most Americans are feeling. Saying he admires the courage of the journalists who were killed, he noted, “When you choose to live among cut throats, you might get your throat cut. Do Americans living here really think they’re going to be next?”

Maher then went on to argue that a more direct threat to the lives of Americans is Monsanto, another group with a name that’s “simultaneously cool-sounding and stands for pure evil.”

“Real Time With Bill Maher” airs Fridays at 10:00 p.m. ET on HBO.
