  1. CNN Asks Tough Questions About The Nude Hacking Scandal, Like “Who Is This Four Chan Person Anyway?”

    Next at 11, "why does Emoji keep texting our teens?"

    Ohhh, CNN. We want to hate you for what you've become—that is, a shallow and irresponsible ratings grab which so often misses the mark when it comes to responsible journalism—but it's almost like trying to hold your bed-ridden racist grandpa to any kind of standard. At this point, it's easier and less head-ache deducing to have a nice inward chuckle at how obsolete you've become. Thanks for bringing some unintentional levity to what's actually been a total nightmare.

  2. Marvel’s Black Widow #12 Cover Features CNN’s Anderson Cooper Because Of Course It Does

    Black Widow, Silver Fox, what's the difference?

    In all seriousness, this cover by Phil Noto is incredibly gorgeous. And it's not just a one-image gimmick, either: according to the creative team behind Black Widow, Anderson Cooper will play an integral role to the plot as he "exposes the tangled web of the Widow’s past discretions." Uhhhh, yes please?

  3. Bill Nye Argues With CNN Host and Heritage Foundation Representative Over Climate Change Impact

    Didn't they see the Ken Ham thing?

    Our Friend Bill Nye appeared on CNN's Crossfire yesterday after a White House report about climate change was released. He was brought on to debate Heritage Foundation representative Nicolas Loris, but instead spent much of the time explaining how science works to the show's host S.E. Cupp.

  4. CNN Is Upworthy Now and Everything Sucks

    We would have made a mocking Upworthy-style parody headline, but we're better than that.

    We here at Team Geekosystem like to make fun of Upworthy. Not because we don't think trying to make social justice viral content isn't commendable, of course; it's because we hate their manipulative headlines. Even worse, we fear that other sites might try to use the same tricks to make us click on them. As it turns out, that fear is justified.

  5. BuzzFeed and CNN Sitting in a Tree, Y-O-U-T-U-B-E

    You got your news in my cat memes. You got your cat memes in my news. CNN and BuzzFeed join forces for new YouTube channel.

    Internet-list authority BuzzFeed has teamed up with CNN and YouTube to create a "CNN BuzzFeed" channel on the popular video site. The channel will feature archival footage, and create new content that we imagine will fall somewhere between ridiculous link bait and regular link bait. Get ready for headlines like, "15 Biggest White House Press Briefing Fails" and, "9 Cats That Are Sick and Tired of Partisan Bickering."

  6. Things We Saw Today: The Hobbit, With Cats

    Things We Saw Today

    As Jill pointed out, the cat version of Bilbo looks an awful lot like Crookshanks from Harry Potter. Anyway, everyone knows Martin Freeman is actually a hedgehog. (By Andrea Femerstrand, via Geek-Art)

  7. There’s Nothing Funny About Voter Fraud, Except Maybe This Reddit Thread

    When a video purporting to be of  a malfunctioning voting machine in Pennsylvania showed up earlier today, a pair of web-savvy CNN reporters were hot on the case, looking for assistance from the Reddit community in confirming the veracity of the video. That is some well-intentioned, shoe leather journalism...that went about exactly as well as you might expect. It probably didn't help that the two reporters in question go by the handles CNNkyle and CNN_eric, a fact that opened the door to a lot of South Park jokes, and that's just for starters.

  8. Candy Crowley Will Be the First Female Presidential Moderator in 20 Years

    We told you a while ago about three rather impressive teenage girls who were petitioning the Commission on Presidential Debates for the commission to appoint a female moderator to the presidential debates. When we last checked in on them, the trio weren't doing so well; the office of the commission wouldn't see them. News came out today, however, that either someone was listening or they'd had their own plans all along: The first female presidential moderator in 20 years has been named for this election season; another will moderate the vice-presidential debate. So let's congratulate them.

  9. Rumor: CNN to Buy Mashable Tomorrow

    Strange news is trickling out of the SXSW conference, where Reuters blogger Felix Salmon says "a little bird told him" that cable news powerhouse CNN is going buy the Internet and technology website Mashable. The cost of the rumored acquisition is $200 million, and Salmon says could be announced as early as Tuesday.

  10. James Cameron to Venture to Challenger Deep, Ocean’s Deepest Known Point

    Director of films with one word titles like as Titanic and Avatar, James Cameron is aiming to accomplish something noteworthy that doesn't involve an Oscar, actors, or even vaguely cat-lookin' aliens; he's going to venture to the ocean's deepest depths. And maybe, just maybe, he'll find some aliens. The glowing purple and pink kind, not the cat-lookin' ones. The spot he's trying to reach, appropriately named Challenger Deep, is part of the Mariana Trench in the Pacific and the deepest known point in the world's oceans.
