Cable News Takes a Hit in 2010

Apparently, neither the twilight days of “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” nor the dependable histrionics of Glenn Beck—not to mention a certain Silver Fox—could save cable news from taking a dip in terms of viewership over the course of 2010 ...

“Electric cars are gay,” says Vince Vaughn in an unfortunate attempt at humor in this trailer for Ron Howard’s new film, “The Dilemma.” It gets worse—Vaughn’s character continues, “not homosexual gay but, you know, ‘my-parents-are-chaperoning-the-dance’ gay.”
