TV Reporter Suspended For Blaming Problems On ‘Young Black Men Growing Up Without Fathers’

A TV newsperson actually said, “The underlying cause for all this, of course: young black men growing up without fathers.”

This is one of those times when I have to check the calendar to make sure that this is indeed 2014, not 1972.

Here’s the video. It’s short.

Kid Takes Grampa’s Car On Joyride, Stopped By Vigilante Truck (Video)

You know the story. You’ve heard it a thousand times. Some punk kid takes his grampa’s truck on a joyride through a crowded park, needlessly endangering the lives of dozens of people. The kid manages to avoid the police for awhile, until a vigilante truck stops him cold.

What? You say you’ve never heard that story? Me neither. Especially not the “vigilante truck” part. That term reminds us of “Speed Buggy.” Remember that show? It was fun.

Kind of like “Scooby Doo” but the dog is a car. But I digress.

Back to the story: here’s video of the truck stopping the kid. It’s a bit intense.

Click through to Jalopnik for the whole sordid tale.

Ed Begley Jr. in Son of The Invisible Man

Here is Ed Begley Jr. in Son of The Invisible Man, from the sketch comedy movie Amazon Women On The Moon.

I’m posting this because it was referenced in a comment on The Onion AV Club on an article titled “Ed Begley Jr. and Mariel Hemingway tricked into appearing in an anti-green energy video”. Which could easily be a parody headline on The Onion, but sadly is a real headline about something that actually happened.

The story, if you don’t want to read it, is about James O’Keefe, the self-proclaimed “conservative activist” who tries to “catch” so-called “liberals” or other people he doesn’t like doing things that are supposedly embarrassing. You may remember him from such films as ACORN. (It wasn’t called ACORN, but that story got a lot of coverage at the time. Probably more than it deserved, honestly.)

In this case I read the comment that mentioned Son of The Invisible Man and wondered what it was. So I googled it. Shockingly, it is available instantly, if unofficially, on YouTube. You here you go.
