Daily Caller Celebrates ‘Hottest Blacks’

Remember that great line Seth Meyers dropped a few years ago about Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents Dinner? You know, the one about “unless the Blacks are a family of white people…”?

Well, this week’s Daily Caller slide show is the Web equivalent of that joke. Behind the cheeky headline “Top 10: Hottest Blacks” and even cheekier intro, there is a gallery… of white people.

Australian actress Pippe Black, Canadian-born media mogul Conrad Black (pictured)… Well, you get get the idea.

The Daily Caller offering is, perhaps less intentionally, a welcome send-up of the inanity of most Web slide shows. And just in case these ten color-blind pics are not enough to satiate, they’ve also got a “Top 10: Hottest Whites” companion slide show. Beginning, of course, with Barry.

Meg Whitman Pays Bloggers Better Than She Pays the Help

What do bloggers and maids of indeterminate legal working status have in common? They don’t get paid very well. That is, unless you work for Meg Whitman. Well, as you probably heard, Whitman’s undocumented housekeeper didn’t get paid very well. But her bloggers sure do.

As the Daily Caller’s Jonathan Strong reported last week, Whitman has consistently paid upwards of 1,000 percent the market rate for advertising space on the conservative blog Red Country. She’s been paying $15,000 a month for advertising all year for a site that only gets 125,000 unique viewers per month. That’s a buck for every 8 people. Not bad.

In related news, this Fishie would like to announce the launch of his new investigative blog, “Meg Whitman is a strong, family-oriented patriot who’s good for America and California and may just be the female reincarnation of Jesus Christ himself — and Jerry Brown smells like doo doo.”
