Here's The Pivotal Track Of The "Blurred Lines" Copyright Case

The jury that will decide whether Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams' "Blurred Lines" is a ripoff of Marvin Gaye's "Got To Give It Up" aren't allowed to listen to "Got To Give It Up" — at least, not the version that we're used to.

American Sniper Killer Guilty, Because Nobody Listened To The Movie

A jury took less than two hours to find Eddie Ray Routh guilty of murdering "American Sniper" Chris Kyle, and Chad Littlefield.

Giuliani Is Right About One Thing: Obama Doesn't Drink The Kool-Aid​

Known racist and former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani is back in the news, questioning whether the President of the United States loves his own damn country.

Judge Rules It's Okay To Leave Home Without American Express​

American Express has benefited from a secret monopoly many consumers don't know about. The company historically charges higher fees to merchants who accept AmEx — Visa or MasterCard or that orange one for plebeians are cheaper for the store.

Harvard Law Folds To The New York Post Like A Cheap Newspaper​

I don't believe the cause of academic freedom requires inviting people to speak on campus who have views that are offensive to the student body. Universities need to leave the tenured professors free to say pretty much whatever the hell they want, but there's no need to invite homophobic Senator X or developing… » 2/17/15 4:11pm 2/17/15 4:11pm

How American Express Will Save DraftKings

We can all keep burying our heads in the sand and pretend that daily fantasy sports "wagering" is not actually sports betting. We can keep pretending that the ability to choose a winning make-believe roster is somehow more skillful than hitting a multi-team parlay and thus totally not gambling. » 2/14/15 10:34pm 2/14/15 10:34pm

Why Doesn't Annalise Understand The Constitution? Week 12 Of HTGAWM

We're baaaaaack. This is the week where the repercussions from the discovery of Sam's body (dumb decision not to incinerate the body Connor) begin to be felt. Given the public way Annalise accused her husband of Lila Stangard's murder when he turns up dead all suspicion lands squarely on her. And it doesn't help that… » 2/13/15 12:00pm 2/13/15 12:00pm

Red Bull Wants To Castrate Old Ox​

Is there any chance that you would be looking for a beer and say, "I think that one is made by Red Bull," unless the can said "Red Bull Beer" on it or something similar? Would a beer made by Red Bull even be a selling point? "Oooh, I bet this beer tastes like pee distilled in Pop Rocks, let's give it a try!"… » 2/10/15 3:42pm 2/10/15 3:42pm

Brian Williams Proves We Don't Need The Stolen Valor Act​

Here's where we are in America: A sexy man who is employed to read a teleprompter that rehashes stuff you already learned on Twitter apparently told some "war stories" about war stories, and now we have a crisis of trust in American journalism. On Sunday, Maureen Dowd wrote the prototypical 2015-era take down piece » 2/09/15 3:31pm 2/09/15 3:31pm

Republicans Take Aim At Internet Poker And Fantasy Sports

It is pretty damn good to be a Republican right now. The GOP controls both the House and the Senate, it owns more than half of the gubernatorial seats in the nation, Obama is close to a zero percent approval rating, and 9/11 truther Pete Carroll kept Marshawn Lynch from being the Super Bowl MVP. » 2/09/15 12:26pm 2/09/15 12:26pm
