Ray Rice Cut by Ravens Following TMZ Video Release (TVNewser)
At 4 a.m. ET Monday morning, TMZ posted a video showing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking out his fiancée Janay Palmer — now his wife — in an Atlantic City elevator last February. By 2:30 p.m., Rice had been suspended indefinitely by the NFL and cut by the Ravens. PRNewser The NFL’s SVP of communications Greg Aiello explained things to CNN: “We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator. That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today.” Mashable The video shows a man believed to be Rice and a woman in a lobby at the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Feb. 15, 2014. The woman is believed to be Palmer, now Janay Rice, whom Rice married in March. After entering an elevator, the two briefly scuffle. The man then hits the woman with his left hand, causing her head to appear to hit the handrail in the elevator. The woman then slumps to the ground and does not move. The man then proceeds to drag her out of the elevator while she still appears to be unconscious. Security arrives after that. Variety ESPN host Keith Olbermann has accused the NFL and commissioner Roger Gooddell, among others, of covering up the Rice domestic violence situation. Rice was given a two-game suspension by the NFL last month over the incident, but on Monday, the league suspended the football player indefinitely as a result of the graphic video. Mediaite TMZ founder Harvey Levin said Monday that none of this would have happened, and Rice would have gotten away with it scot-free, had TMZ not put the video online.

The Onion to Launch BuzzFeed and Upworthy Parody Site

BuzzFeed and Upworthy have built their web empires on the time-tested premise that most people are stupid and therefore will enjoy reading stupid content. The Onion has picked up on that similarity, and decided to take on both with the launch of the appropriately named ClickHole.com.

According to New York Business Journal, ClickHole will be a site that exists solely to mock BuzzFeed and Upworthy. You can’t see the FishbowlNY editors, but we’re giving The Onion a standing ovation.

The Onion gave a few examples of ClickHole’s content, but they were so similar to BuzzFeed and Upworthy posts that we decided to make you a little quiz (Everyone likes them!). See if you can figure out which headline is from BuzzFeed or Upworthy, and which is from ClickHole. Scroll to the bottom to see the answers.

BuzzFeed/Upworthy or ClickHole?
