The account is proudly touting itself as a Russian troll in its Twitter bio, but Twitter has taken no action against it. Using the pseudonym "Jenna Abrams" and photographs of a Russian woman, the troll account in its initial incarnation posted more than 25,000 tweets using an invented persona of a conservative American woman. Before it was shu…

'Justice League' looks to its biggest heroes for box office success
Warner Bros.' DC Entertainment is bringing out all its stars for this weekend's comic book mash-up, "Justice League." But will audiences embrace the superhero squad at the box office the way they flocked to this summer's "Wonder Woman?" So far the answer seems to be maybe. The film, which has Ben Affleck's Batman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman fighting alongside other DC crusaders like Erza Miller's The Flash, Jason Momoa's Aquaman, and Ray Fisher's Cyborg, brought in $13 million…

Using the Simpsons to explain how Asian Americans are overlooked

Using the Simpsons to explain how Asian Americans are overlooked
Hollywood has offered up few Asian American stars. But one of its most well-known is a cartoon: Apu from The Simpsons. Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, the Indian American character who operates the Kwik-E-Mart convenience store in the fictional town of Springfield and is known for the catch phrase "thank you, come again," has served as the animated series' running immigrant punchline for almost 30 years. "What bothered me about Apu is how he stood in for my parents, replacing their rea…

How would the middle class fare under the Senate tax bill?

How would the middle class fare under the Senate tax bill?
Republicans and Democrats offer wildly different interpretations of what the latest version of the Senate tax bill would do for the middle class and other income groups. Republicans generally say it will be great for everyone. Democrats say the bill will hurt most everyone except the wealthy and corporations. Both sides choose to highlight different measures, or stress the estimated effects of the bill in different years. The truth is there are many ways to determine how a …

Tracing the roots of conservative skepticism in the media with S.E. Cupp

Tracing the roots of conservative skepticism in the media with S.E. Cupp
S. E. Cupp's conservative views haven't changed since she started hosting her own show, "SE Cupp Unfiltered," on HLN. But by virtue of her being part of the media business, "a close family member who does not believe the media, does not believe me, and thinks I am fake news," she said. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, Cupp's anecdote is a reminder of how personal polarization can become, and a lesson about how hard it is these days to break through the thick layer of conservati…

What the Senate tax bill would do for sexual harassment victims

What the Senate tax bill would do for sexual harassment victims
An amendment to the tax reform bill working its way through Congress would deny businesses the ability to write off sexual harassment settlements as business expenses. The Senate tax bill, passed by the Senate Finance Committee Thursday, includes an amendment that says businesses cannot deduct settlements, payouts, attorney fees or other expenses related to sexual harassment or sexual abuse, if such payments are subject to a nondisclosure agreement. The amendment was proposed b…

The gadget store that doesn't care if you buy anything

The gadget store that doesn't care if you buy anything
Two years ago, a few UCLA undergraduate students invented a pocket-sized phone charger called Flux. They sold it on street corners in Santa Monica. Flux became a hit, so they started accepting online orders. They packaged and shipped them out to customers from a fraternity house. "It wasn't the greatest condition for running a business, especially in terms of just cleanliness, so that's when we decided to outsource distribution," said Flux co-founder Miles Anthony. Now, Flux …

Victoria's Secret is struggling because women want to be comfortable
When you think about Victoria's Secret, you think push-ups, Miracle Bras and sexy lingerie. The problem for Victoria's Secret is that women don't want those anymore. In early 2016, Victoria's Secret doubled down on sexy underwear.
