The Real Problem With Sean Penn's Green Card Joke at the Oscars

Janet Murguía | February 27, 2015 | Latino Voices

Lincoln Mitchell | February 27, 2015 | Celebrity
Few fictional characters, particularly from television, have been as enduring in the public consciousness, memorable and profound as Spock, and few actors have both inhabited and created a character as fully and brilliantly as Leonard Nimoy did with Spock.

The Gay Best Friend Must Die

Tré Easton | February 27, 2015 | Gay Voices
No dear, I don't know why the guy you're into won't text you back. (I still haven't figured that out for my own purposes.) And, for the love of all that is good and HOLY: I am not -- repeat, NOT -- an honorary girl.

Kamrin Baker | February 25, 2015 | Teen

Em & Lo | February 24, 2015 | Women
Since clearly, Chris was in the driver's seat of this love bus and all three ladies were just along for the ride this week (having all admitted to actively falling for him), the best love lessons to be gleaned from this episode seemed to be rules solely applicable to bachelors.

Why Fresh Off The Boat Is Not Asian America's Saving Grace

Esther Suh | February 27, 2015 | Entertainment
Fresh is the first show with a full Asian American cast in 20 years. This, without question, is something to be celebrated. However, we cannot praise Fresh to be the messiah for Asian Americans on television. Doing so will only cause disappointment and frustration of misrepresentation.

Mike Medavoy | February 24, 2015 | World
The Cultural Revolution days of an autarkic closed information loop when the Communist Party could dictate a narrative for an isolated and impoverished society are over for China. To believe otherwise is to undermine the very links to the rest of the world that have enabled China to become the ever-more prospering world power it is today.

The Anti-Hero & the Outlaw: The Unmatched Rivalry at the Heart of the FX Series Justified

Ahmad Khan | February 23, 2015 | TV
Justified is a series that's been inexplicably off the radar of award shows and the eyeballs of a mass audience even as it grew tremendously in sophistication and quality since first airing on FX in March of 2010.

Tony Newman | February 23, 2015 | Politics
Almost every week he talks about our country's absurd war on drugs. Last week he did his best rap ever on the drug war that was both hilarious and blood-boiling.

So Where's Fox News' Internal Review of O'Reilly's Disputed 'Combat' Tales?

Eric Boehlert | February 23, 2015 | Media
As controversy surrounding Bill O'Reilly and his previous claims of harrowing "combat" journalism escalates, this would be the moment when most news organizations would step in and announce that an internal review was underway to ascertain the truth. But not Fox News.
