Beauty vs Beast: Wakanda Forever

Jason from Mnpp popping in from between Tribeca screenings to quick give us our Monday afternoon "Beauty vs Beast" fix -- I figure it's a Marvel Week what with that lil' Avengers movie opening in a couple of days and so what better time to step one step back and tackle their most recent smashing success, Ryan Coogler's Black Panther, which is still sitting pretty in the Top Ten, box-office-wise. 1.3 Billion dollars! I figure some of you have seen it? So let's face down its titular hero (Chadwick Boseman) and The Best Villain Marvel Has Given Us Yet Eric Killmonger (Michael B Jordan), which is totally that character's official name now.

David Puttnam: data misuse by digital giants "threatens democracy itself"

Fda chairman was delivering his annual keynote address to UK film distributors.

Speaking in his annual keynote address as the president of the UK’s Film Distributors’ Association (Fda), David Puttnam has warned Us-based online giants such as Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google must take action to tackle the misuse of users’ data.

The revered UK producer of Chariots Of Fire and The Killing Fields highlighted that while the so-called Faang group, which now accounts for 10% of the entire Us stock market, have “improved our connected lives”, recent questions have emerged around the safety of private data. All of

Beauty vs Beast: Defriended

Jason from Mnpp here wishing the great Rooney Mara a happy 33rd birthday (it's tomorrow) - do you think she will have birthday pie? I like to think that once she got a taste of pie filming A Ghost Story she hasn't been able to stop. Eat all the pie, Rooney! You've earned it. Anyway I've had Rooney on the brain over the past few weeks thanks to the presence of Mark Zuckerberg in our lives - who can look at his face and not want to re-visit all of her take-downs in The Social Network? You're a stronger person than me if you don't find yourself muttering "Good luck with your video-game" to yourself a couple times a day. In that spirit then this week's "Beauty vs Beast"...

Seth Meyers: Paul Ryan Is a Rat Fleeing a Sinking Ship (Video)

Seth Meyers: Paul Ryan Is a Rat Fleeing a Sinking Ship (Video)
Seth Meyers kicked off his daily “Late Night” monologue of quick hitters Wednesday night with quite a jab at Speaker Paul Ryan, who announced earlier in the day that he would not seek re-election this fall.

But Meyers didn’t stop with just a killer zinger — he also provided an illustration as well.

“House speaker Paul Ryan announced today that he will not seek re-election. I believe his exact words were, ‘squeak, squeak, squeak,'” Meyers said, as the following image appeared on screen next to him.

Oh, but he had another one for Ryan too.

“So now his family are the ones asking for thoughts and prayers,” Meyers joked, referring to the Republican’s regular offering of empty gestures after mass shootings while refusing to contribute to their prevention in any tangible way.

The procession of digs from there moved to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s congressional testimony, another person leaving the White House, and Donald Trump suspiciously tweeting about “fighting back” against an investigation into whether he tried to obstruct justice.

Here’s what Meyers said regarding Zuckerberg:

“According to reports, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg sat on a four-inch-thick cushion to boost his height during his Senate testimony yesterday. Said Zuckerberg: ‘oh, no, that’s my wallet’. That’s right, Mark Zuckerberg sat on a four-inch-thick cushion during his Senate testimony yesterday. ‘There was a cushion?’ said Jeff Sessions. ‘I find it very, very inappropriate that only some people get cushions.'”

And somebody from the Trump administration named Nadia Schadlow quitting her job:

“The White House said today that deputy national security adviser Nadia Schadlow is resigning. This is how bad it’s getting in the Trump administration — the first time you even hear somebody’s name is when they resign. So long, Nadia, we’ll miss your characteristics that you probably have.”

And Trump’s troubling tweet about Robert Mueller:

“President Trump today criticized special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation saying there is quote, ‘No collusion or obstruction other than I fight back.” Hold on, ‘no obstruction other than I fight back’? Fighting back against an investigation is obstruction. That’s like saying ‘No infidelity other than I sleep with porn stars.’ Only Trump would try to obstruct justice and confess to it in the same tweet.”

That Time Sean Hannity Got Fired for Homophobic Comments… and Went to the Aclu for Help (Podcast)

Fox News host Sean Hannity’s career began the last place you might expect: on the liberal campus of Uc Santa Barbara, where he hosted a shock-jock radio show in which he tore into the news media and offered up flatly wrong theories about AIDS.

It was 1989. Hannity was a 27-year-old college dropout from Long Island when he scored a job at Ucsb’s radio station. But, as the Washington Post reported, he was soon fired for offenses that included egging on a guest “who claimed that AIDS was spreading among gay men because they consumed each other’s feces,” and telling a lesbian mother he felt sorry for her child. The details — and what he did next — are the subject of our new “Shoot This Now” podcast, which you can listen on Apple or Spotify or here:

<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>

Also Read: What Facebook Can Learn From the Tylenol Murders (Podcast)

After enlisting the American Civil Liberties Union in his fight to return to the college airwaves, Hannity went on to a job in Alabama. The Post reports that Hannity’s official station biography said he “made a proud name for himself by insulting lesbians.”

He would later, of course, go on to criticize the Aclu for what he saw as its liberal bias. But he has expressed regret over the college radio-show comments.

“Almost 30 years ago when I was starting out in radio in my 20s, I interviewed a controversial guest who made several incendiary comments. I was young and stupid with no clue how to do a show. I’m actually very libertarian on social issues and people’s personal lives. I’m now 56 years old and yes, I freely admit the comments in my 20s were ignorant and embarrassing,” Hannity said in a statement.

Hannity’s past homophobic comments are notable today because of the host’s recent feud with Jimmy Kimmel, in which Kimmel insinuated that Hannity was sexually submissive to President Trump. Kimmel apologized, saying: “By lampooning Sean Hannity’s deference to the president, I most certainly did not intend to belittle or upset members of the gay community and to those who took offense, I apologize.”

Every week on “Shoot This Now,” Matt Donnelly and I discuss a different story we think should be made into a TV show or movie — then offer up our dream cast and creative team. I have an interesting idea for who should play a young Sean Hannity. Matt has a better one.

During our discussion of Hannity and the Aclu, we also talk about “The Simpsons” recent handling of Apu, Matt tells a great story about Gwyneth Paltrow, and we tell two random stories about “Happy Endings” star Adam Pally. If you like the episode, check out our archives, and rate us on iTunes.

Oh, and be sure to check out our still very timely episode from last week about what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg can learn from Johnson and Johnson’s handling of the 1982 Tylenol murders.

Gop Congressman Berates Mark Zuckerberg With Huge Photo of Fox Personalities Diamond and Silk

  • The Wrap
Facebook isn’t deliberately pulling right-wing voices from its platform, despite the suspicions of conservative Congress members, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on Wednesday.

During the second day of his Washington testimony on the Cambridge Analytica data leak, Rep. Billy Long (R-mo) pressed Zuckerberg on what he and many Republicans view as a coordinated blackballing of conservatives by the social network. Long revealed a picture of conservative commentators “Diamond and Silk,” who were recently told by Facebook their content is “unsafe,” and asked Zuckerberg if he knew who they were.

“I believe that is Diamond and Silk?” responded Zuckerberg.

Also Read: Mark Zuckerberg Says His Info Was Leaked to Cambridge Analytica

“That is Diamond and Silk, two biological sisters from North Carolina. I’d like to point out they’re African-American. And their content was deemed by your folks to be unsafe,” said Rep. Long. “Diamond and Silk have a question for you and that question is: what is unsafe about two black women supporting President Donald J. Trump?”

“Well congressman, nothing is unsafe about that. The specifics of this situation, I’m not up to speed…” said Zuckerberg, before Rep. Long jumped in to say Facebook should be using its analytics team to see how many conservative voices have been silenced in comparison to liberal commentators.

Diamond and Silk have around 1.4 million Facebook followers, but have said the social network has curtailed the reach of their videos for several months. Rep. Long joined several other Republicans in blasting Facebook’s perceived bias towards conservatives. On Tuesday, Senator Ted Cruz asked the 33-year-old exec about Facebook’s “pervasive pattern of political bias” — something Zuckerberg shot down and said he was concerned about himself.

“Senator, let me say a few things about this. First, I understand where that concern is coming from because Facebook and the tech industry are located in Silicon Valley, which is an extremely Left leaning place,” said Zuckerberg. “And this is actually a concern that I have and that I try to root out in the company is making sure that we don’t have any bias in the work that we do, and I think it is a fair concern that people would at least wonder about.”

Rep. Long added he wasn’t in favor of regulating Facebook, but that it’s recent issues with the data leak might force the hands of lawmakers.

Mark Zuckerberg Used a "Booster Seat" in Congress and Twitter Had a Field Day

For his appearance in Congress, Mark Zuckerberg needed a bit of a boost. The Facebook CEO appeared at a joint hearing by the Senate's Commerce and Judiciary committees on Tuesday to face questioning by senators about his company. His social network has in recent months been slammed over its lack of privacy for its users and its usage by Russian agents as a tool to influence the 2016 U.S. election—an allegation Moscow denies. Zuckerberg, whose height is believed to be 5'7", testified for almost five hours while sitting on a black cushion placed on the seat on a chair. Many people on Twitter mocked the Facebook CEO for using a "booster seat." A Facebook rep...

Watch 'Mark Zuckerberg' Field Senator Selfie Questions on 'Kimmel'

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg testified before the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees for over five hours on Tuesday, fielding senators' questions about the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Jimmy Kimmel Live envisioned how the sixth hour of questioning might've gone in a hilarious parody.

In Kimmel's spoof, a trio of fake senators grilled Zuckerberg on social media taboos. "Mrs. Dorgan" asked, "If someone 'pokes' me, is that a sex thing?'

"Mr. Field" chimed in with, "I just want a straight 'yes' or no': Can anyone see those pictures I sent to my intern?

Colbert: After FBI Took Cohen’s Phone, ‘He’s Going to Have to Threaten Porn Stars by Telegram’ (Video)

After briefly joking about the old folks interrogating Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg all day Tuesday (“We’ll have more on this tomorrow, if they make me”), Stephen Colbert spent the majority of his “Late Show” monologue Tuesday night cracking wise about the news item that has a solid chance at either remaining the biggest story of the week or spawning it: the FBI’s raid and seizure of property of Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen.

“I want to give a shoutout to any FBI agents watching from this Michael Cohen’s hotel room! Hi, guys! If you’re there, remember, just order the porn, because the porn is on the president. And, uh, and the porn stars are, too,” Colbert joked. “Of course, I’m talking about yesterday’s big raid on Trump attorney and man realizing he left his soul on the bus, Michael Cohen. Now, a lot of people are expecting me to celebrate just because this is devastating to Donald Trump, but we’re not going to be dropping a bunch of Michael Cohen confetti tonight, because the FBI got all his papers before he could shred them.”

And then Colbert dropped a really interesting metaphor for how screwed Trump would appear to be right now.

Also Read: Seth Meyers: Trump's New Strategy Is 'To Act so Guilty the Feds Will Think He Has to Be Innocent' (Video)

“But it is a huge deal. This exact moment, as I speak, FBI agents are so far up in Trump’s business that they’re reading his emails with a proctoscope. Investigators snapped up Cohen’s computer, personal financial records, even his phone. Now he’s going to have to threaten porn stars by telegram,” Colbert said, before slipping in a joke about another joke. “Agents also took all material related to a 2016 payment Cohen made to adult film star Stormy Daniels. In this case, the FBI actually does stand for ‘female body inspector.'”

Colbert then played the now-famous clip of Trump derailing a meeting about Syria to complain about the raid, in which he said the FBI “broke into” Cohen’s office.

“What does he mean, ‘broke into the office of one of my person attorneys?’ They used a search warrant,” Colbert said before slipping into his Trump voice. “‘Did you see what they did to my attorney? They broke into his office, stole a bunch of damning evidence. I think they might kidnap him to jail.'”

Also Read: Stephen Colbert Offers Michael Cohen Some Advice: 'I'm Sure the FBI Will Keep This Whole Thing Quiet for $130,000' (Video)

And, of course, Colbert also had some instructive words for Trump about exactly what kind of troubling situation he’s in right now.

“Trump also tweeted, ‘Attorney-client privilege is dead!’ Well, it is for you, because it turns out paying $130,000 to shut up a porn star right before the election is a violation of campaign finance law, and knowingly lying to a bank about why you need the 130 grand is bank fraud, and attorney-client privilege doesn’t apply if they’re investigating a crime jointly undertaken by the attorney and the client,” Colbert said. He then went back to his Trump voice for an illustration of how bad Trump is at understanding what is and isn’t a protected interaction with your lawyer.

“‘Officer, officer, may I remind you — yes, we were robbing this bank — but may I remind you, the guy holding the pistol is my lawyer, Okay. I assume that clears things up. We’ll be on my way. because he’s charging me by the hour to do that.'”

Late-Night Hosts Dissect Mark Zuckerberg's Congressional Testimony

On TBS, Conan O'Brien added a few quips about the testimony into his opening monologue. "Today, Senator Lindsey Graham asked Mark Zuckerberg if there was anything else like Facebook, and Zuckerberg said, 'No.' And at that exact moment, Tom from MySpace took his own life," O'Brien said, referring to Tom Anderson, the co-founder of MySpace and an online meme.

Mark Zuckerberg got an intense, lengthy grilling Tuesday from dozens of senators, and none was more demanding -- and political -- than Sen. Ted Cruz. Most senators asked Zuck about privacy and data-related issues, but Sen. Cruz decided to hammer the CEO over the alleged censorship of conservative-themed Fb pages.

Mark Zuckerberg’s Congressional Testimony Spawns Memes (and a Ton of ‘Star Trek’ Jokes)

  • The Wrap
On Tuesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg finally appeared before Congress to discuss the social media platform’s recent scandals. But while talk on Capitol Hill largely concerned the platform’s impact on recent elections, “fake news,” and the Cambridge Analytica data leak, online chit chat focused on more prosaic issues — like Zuckerberg’s anxious appearance, and general lack of tech knowledge by presiding legislators.

The memes started from the get-go as Zuckerberg made his opening remarks, in which he apologized and said “It will take some time to work through all the changes but I’m committed to getting this right.” While s a few people commented on his remarks, it seems that far more noted that the CEO, 33, appeared much paler than usual, a condition attributed to everything from nervousness, to karma, to resemblance to a nerd culture icon.

Quite a few people agreed that Zuckerberg reminded them of Lt. Commander Data, science officer of the Enterprise on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

Mark Zuckerberg Admits Facebook Data Scandal Was His Mistake: Watch Live Now

Updated with newest link.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is currently engaging in his second Congressional hearing regarding questions surrounding Cambridge Analytica and the privacy crisis facing his popular website, including concerns as to how the company shares the data of its users and how stolen or sold data might have swayed users during the 2016 presidential election. The embattled exec is set to be questioned by the Senate Judiciary and the Commerce, Science, and Transportation committees over the course of two days.

Variety reports that Zuckerberg’s opening statements were released ahead of the Energy and Commerce hearing, and includes admissions from Zuckerberg, including a note that the company “didn’t do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm,” adding that Facebook “didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake. It was my mistake, and I’m sorry.”

Cardi B and Jimmy Fallon Team Up to Mock Trump’s ‘Spanx’ Coat and Facebook (Video)
Even though she was the first ever co-host of “The Tonight Show,” Cardi B. was more than capable of handling her role in the hot seat next to Jimmy Fallon.

The duo’s chemistry was sharp, and reflected when the two ripped Donald Trump’s peculiar-looking coat that he wore over the weekend in a segment titled “What’s Up With That Coat?”

“What is up with that coat? I didn’t know Spanx made jackets,” she quipped of the strangely shaped outerwear. “It looks like they put his butt implants on the wrong side.”

The rapper also took a not-so-subtle shot at Facebook and its data breach by tying the title of her new album, which was released last Friday, to the ongoing scandal.

“You are promoting your new album ‘Invasion of Privacy,’ or as Facebook users are calling it, ‘A Little Too Close to Home,'” Fallon joked to the rapper.

“I don’t trust that Mark Zuckerberg,” the rapper added.

The duo also discussed Cardi B.’s pregnancy, which she discreetly revealed during her appearance on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend, and she performed a new song titled “Money Bag” as well.

This was the rapper’s third overall appearance on “The Tonight Show.”
