‘Vacation or ‘punishment’?’ ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith suspended for a week

http://twitter.com/#!/realtimwilliams/status/494219313289887744

Looks like Stephen A. Smith will have to find another outlet where he can muse about the role domestic violence victims play in their abuse. At least for a little while:

Viewers can’t help but wonder:

Some are suggesting that Smith got off pretty easy:

Looks that way. We’ll find out more soon enough.

Here’s something else to think about in the meantime:

Greg Gutfeld heaps praise on Malkin for crushing ‘bigoted bug’ MSNBC [video]

http://twitter.com/#!/KamaainaInOC/status/429016030992539648

Fox News’ “The Five” gave Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin a well-deserved shout out on Thursday for leading a phenomenal social media win against MSNBC.

http://twitter.com/#!/vondrachek/status/429017215589830657

MSNBC tweeted a despicable prediction that the Right would “hate” a sweet Cheerios ad featuring a biracial family. Led by Malkin, conservatives used the #MyRightwingBiracialFamily hashtag to share beautiful photos of their diverse, loving families .

“Bravo to those who crushed this bigoted bug so swiftly,” said Greg Gutfeld on “The Five” after MSNBC’s executive editor ridiculously claimed “that’s not who we are” and the network’s president apologized. Gutfeld added, “I’ve got to hand it to Michelle Malkin … I’m tired of outrage. I like action.”

Gutfeld also called the network a “one stop shop for master race-baiting.” Snicker. It’s all in the delivery.

‘LOL’: Launch of Ezra Klein, Matt Yglesias venture sponsored by G.E.

http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/442802719498452992

In January, liberal blogger Ezra Klein, formerly of the Washington Post, promised a “new way of delivering the news.” That “new way” is ready for launch, as announced by Klein and Slate’s Matt Yglesias, who will serve as executive editor of Vox:

http://twitter.com/#!/mattyglesias/status/442793904979447808
http://twitter.com/#!/voxdotcom/status/442793726876737536

The best part?

http://twitter.com/#!/kendall/status/442794215320604672
http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/442801892184571904

The launch sponsor is General Electric. Both Klein and Yglesias have blasted a system that offers corporations like G.E. major tax loopholes. But if the surplus is invested in the “proper” venture, apparently they’re willing to look the other way.

Yglesias also used General Electric as an example of “terrible” corporate behavior in a December column titled “Dividends are Evil.”
