Former White House Photographer Reveals Never-Before-Seen Photos of Obama's Private Anguish After Sandy Hook: It Was 'the Worst Day' of His Presidency
Former official White House photographer Pete Souza shot close to two million photographs of then-President Barack Obama during his eight years in office — and they weren’t all cute candids with kids.

In his new book, Obama: An Intimate Portrait, Souza reveals that one of his hardest days on the job was also what he described as “the worst day” of Obama’s presidency: December 14, 2012, when 20 first-grade students and six staff members died in the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

One Year Later: How the 2016 Election Changed Everything About 2017 TV
A year after the Election That Shocked The World, Donald Trump has permeated almost every ounce of popular culture — especially television. Just about everything on the small screen these days ends up being interpreted through a political lens. Even things that once weren’t politicized have now been thrust into that world.

That’s probably not surprising, given that the President of the United States is someone who has been obsessed with ratings, and winning an Emmy, over the years. He’s someone who spends all day consuming — and tweeting about — cable TV news, and often treats big announcements like he’s revealing the winner on “The Apprentice.” And that’s led to real-life storylines that would be dismissed as too outlandish or unbelievable if they were actually written on the page.

“This election happens and you have to reevaluate everything,” “Royal Pains” executive producer Michael Rauch said this summer

‘Liberation Day’ Review: A Slovenian Rock Band Visits Pyongyang in this Utterly Bizarre Look at Life in North Korea

  • Indiewire
Only one foreign rock band has ever performed in North Korea. Any guesses? Here’s a hint: Instead of thinking about the musicians who Kim Jong-un would invite to his tetchy hermit kingdom, try thinking about the musicians who might actually take him up on the offer. U2? No. Kid Rock? It’s a toss-up. The Slovenian art band Laibach, who emerged from the ashes of communist Yugoslavia and like to parody fascist regimes by adopting all of their favorite party tricks (sometimes with such a straight face that they’re accused of being Nazis themselves)? Absolutely.

And so, in August 2015, the current members of the Laibach collective flew to Pyongyang International Airport and prepared to play a concert in honor of the 70th anniversary of Korea’s liberation from Japanese rule. Arranged by director Morten Traavik, a Fincher-like force of nature who’d orchestrated a number of trips to Pyongyang in the past,

Marc Alan Fishman: Can I Love the Art But Not the Artist?

  • Comicmix
I’ve been perplexed. As I’m sure so many of you have been paying at least a modicum of attention to the comings and goings of our President, no doubt you’ve seen a rise of discourse throughout your social feeds and TV screens concerning the separation of art and the artist.

Ok, it’s really an argument about whether using the national anthem as the background for non-violent protest is offensive. Okay. Follow me here, kiddos.

Among the master debaters I’ve followed, one argument floated to the top of my gaze. It was the notion that professional athletes are in fact paid to entertain and therefore should be reprimanded and subjugated to dismissal from their jobs if their actions fail to entertain the fanbase of said sports team from which they hail. In short, I think that argument is hilariously off-base. Professional athletes are in fact paid to play a game.

Could Kid Rock Actually Become President of the United States?

It’s not as much of a laughing matter as you might seem to think. Take a step back and realize just who’s in office after all. We currently have a Potus that was at one time a reality star and a guest star on WWE. He’s been an entrepreneur and all-around hated personality for so many years that someone must have thought it would make sense to put in the one position where he’d be criticized non-stop and with some of the most hateful rhetoric ever known to mankind. We’ve also had a former bodybuilder turned action star as the
