Staffers Inside Fox News Are Freaking Out Over their New, Uh, Wokeness ...?
I’m cautiously excited about this new Murphy Brown, although I feel like it’s probably going to end up generating a lot of controversies. She’s taking on Trump … and her son, who will be defending Trump. I expect I’ll be alternating between fist-pumping and rage-stroking. So, basically: Like spending 22 minutes on Twitter. There’s a teaser here and more intel. You tell me? (Lainey)
He keeps getting older, but his girlfriends stay the same age. (Celebitchy)
In fact, he’s old enough to play Ulysses S. Grant now. (/Film)
Allegations of sexual misconduct against the Catfish guy? Yeah, no shit. Some dudes, you just fucking know. (Dlisted)
Leighton has Still Got It. (GFY)
You guys: Jordan Peele is going Nazi hunting. Kristy reminded me today that a couple of years ago, I called him the Garfunkel. Was I ever wrong. (FSR)
THR’s got the entire behind-the-scenes saga concerning Alison Mack’s descent from Smallville to sex cult. Sad business. (THR)
He’ll always be my Batman.

Fox News is … getting woke? They’ve brought in a female CEO, installed Muslim prayer rugs in Ollie North’s old office, require sexual harassment training, and implemented a new trans policy. Lachlan Murdoch is taking over, and he’s a “globalist,” so … watch out Sean Hannity? People inside Fox News are freaking out. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (Vanity Fair)

Interesting … Paul Manafort’s former son-in-law has cut a deal with authorities in exchange for his cooperation. More evidence that Mueller is 6 months ahead of everyone else (we’ll find out about the explosive criminal conduct behind this plea in October, probably). (Reuters)
If you haven’t listened to it yet, do check out the This American Life episode, “My Effing First Amendment.” It’s rage inducing, but fantastically well done. I listened to it on a run, and spit fire the entire time. (This American Life)
I wouldn’t normally brag about a pull quote (how gauche), but our own Kristy Puchko has a quote featured on a sign that Tessa Thompson is dancing with in the new Sorry to Bother You trailer. That’s pretty fucking rad. (Shadow and Act)
Sanderson Fatigue - is it a real thing? Shibuyama liked a lot about Brandon Sanderson’s first novel, Elantris, but at the end the most they could say was, "Well, that was definitely a Sanderson book." Elantris sets the foundation for the Cosmere, so Shibuyama highly recommends it, but maybe keep some variety in your reading too. (Cannonball Read 10)
Amazon’s Lord of the Rings TV series has found its central character. (Hypable)
Oh fuck me.
Bill Gates says that in *both* meetings he had with Trump, Trump asked if HPV and HIV were the same thing. https://t.co/Py7fRwC6l0— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) May 17, 2018
