How to watch the Emmys online, and what's different in the midst of our pandemic

The (awards) show apparently must go on. 

Somehow, even during a global pandemic, the Emmys are happening on Sunday night. The awardsshow celebrating the best in television is scheduled to start at 8:00 p.m. ET. 

But don't worry, it won't be violating any social distancing guidelines. The event, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will primarily be a virtual offering. The show will be televised on ABC but if you want you watch online, you have a few options. 

You can watch on ABC's website or mobile app. There's also Locast, which lets you stream broadcast networks, for free, in a number of areas in the U.S.  If you use services like YouTube TV or  Hulu's live TV offering, you can also stream ABC's broadcast from there.  Read more...

Joe Biden's new ad spotlights a Donald Trump promise we all hope he keeps

Joe Biden's new ad spotlights a Donald Trump promise we all hope he keeps

You've got to hand it to Joe Biden: His new 10-second ad makes good use of every last moment. 

The Democratic nominee doesn't really even say a word. He simply put up a video of Donald Trump speaking at a rally on Twitter and let the president's statement speak for itself.

"If I lose to [Joe Biden] I don't know what I'm gonna do," Trump says in the quick clip. "I will never speak to you again. You'll never see me again."

The short ad then cuts to a picture of a grinning Biden. "I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message," Biden says. 

It's a quite simple and very effective message.

Trump made the comments about Biden at a Fayetteville, North Carolina rally on Saturday. The Republican president was claiming a senator once told him Biden was the dumbest person in the Senate. That led Trump to segue into a claim that he felt Biden was the worst candidate in history, and thus, if he lost to him, he'd simply have to go away.  Read more...

Lindsey Graham said in 2016 to use his words against him. Twitter followed through.

Senator Lindsey Graham's own words are being used against him, thanks to old videos recirculating on Twitter. 

Graham is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the cohort of senators who review judicial nominations. In the wake of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death, he's facing pressure to reject any nominee chosen by Donald Trump to take Justice Ginsburg's seat. Ginsburg was a progressive on a largely conservative court, and any nominee Trump puts forward is sure to be conservative as well. 

In years past, Graham has repeatedly insisted that Supreme Court vacancies should remain vacant during election years so the next president has a chance to fill them. When President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court to fill Justice Antonin Scalia's seat in 2016, Graham led the opposition against the nomination.  Read more...

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's best pop culture moments

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's best pop culture moments

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday at age 87. 

The absolutely awful news will of course usher in lots of worthy look backs at her illustrious career. However, in addition to being a beloved Supreme Court Justice known for her fiery dissents, she was also a pop culture icon lovingly referred to as the Notorious RBG — a nickname she seemed to delight in, noting in 2019 it was “beyond her wildest imagination.”

There were RBG earrings, baby costumes, Tumblrs, and books — and with that, plenty of onscreen celebrations. If you’re upset about her death, the first thing you should do is email your senators about not holding hearings for her replacement until after the election. (Hear that?)  Read more...
