  5. Deadline Formally Apologizes for That Totally Racist Article About TV Diversity

    And, in doing so, misses the point entirely.

  8. Are Comic Cons Breaking The Law By Not Paying Their Volunteers?

    One IRL lawyer examines the circumstances surrounding our biggest cons.

    Where once we had to drive hours to meet our brethren in third-rate expo centers once a year, cons are now everywhere. And they’re very big business.
