Watch Trevor Noah ‘fire’ Michelle Wolf from ‘The Daily Show’

Host Trevor Noah “officially fired” Michelle Wolf from The Daily Show last night after her controversial White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech dominated the last few news cycles. Gleefully, Noah broke down what exactly was so incendiary about her monologue, saying she “should’ve had the decency not to comment on a woman’s appearance in any way, shape or form. She’s a comedian for God’s sake. Not the president.”  And to prove his point, he fake fired Wolf, who worked as a writer and contributor for The Daily Show from April 2016…

We Need to Talk About the Ending of Avengers: Infinity War

Last weekend Avengers: Infinity War made more than $640 million at the global box office—and at least $258 million of that came from domestic theaters, a number that easily bests previous record holder Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This is relevant for two reasons: One, holy crap that’s a lot of money. Two, it means we can finally talk about this movie freely since pretty much anyone who wanted to see it has now done so, apparently. That’s good; there’s a lot to discuss. It was pretty much inevitable, considering…

21 of the best jokes from the Clinton, Bush, and Obama White House Correspondents dinners.

The White House Correspondents’ Association dinner is an opportunity for the politically powerful to showcase their ability to take a joke. Naturally, Donald Trump won’t go near it. For the second straight year, Trump won’t be in attendance for the dinner. Not exactly known for his ability to poke fun at himself or smile along, it makes sense that he wouldn’t want to be there for an evening that both undercuts and exaggerates the press’s supposedly adversarial relationship with our nation’s leaders. While the event itself dates back more than…

Augmented Reality Is Transforming Museums

New York’s Museum of Modern Art is under siege. Well, a virtual siege, at least. A group of renegade artists has co-opted the brightly-lit Jackson Pollock gallery on the museum’s fifth floor, turning it into their personal augmented reality playground. To the uninitiated, the gallery remains unchanged; Pollock’s distinctive drip paintings are as prominent and pristine as ever. But to those that have downloaded the MoMAR Gallery app on their smartphones, the impressionist's iconic paintings are merely markers—points of reference telling the app where to display the guerilla artists’ works.…

On Monday, April 16, parents of two students who died during the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting sued conspiracy theorist and media personality Alex Jones. Jones, who runs the far-right conspiracy site Infowars.com, is no stranger to lawsuits.
