Confuse Anderson Cooper With Dr. Drew At Your Own Peril…

Earlier this week, Anderson Cooper made sure to note the differences between “Maroon 5′s” Adam Levine and himself; he also revealed the response an average person on the street can expect if they confuse him with HLN’s Dr. Drew Pinsky.

“I had someone yell at me on the street the other day, ‘Hey Dr. Drew,’ and I was like…’f*ck you,’” Cooper said while laughing. “Call me Wolf, call me an older, less cool Adam Levine…just don’t call me late for the ‘Ridiculist’.”

That Time ‘Chris Matthews’ Appeared as a Guest…on Fox News?

‘Cronkite and Murrow Never Had to Compete With Candy Crush or Netflix’

Mac King, a reporter at WNYW in New York City, poked fun this week at some of the more annoying frequently-used reporter phrases. King — who points out “Cronkite and Murrow never had to compete with Candy Crush or Netflix, but I do” — offered a satirical take at some of the “horrible crimes committed against our language every day” on TV.

On King’s list of violations: phrases like “in this exclusive live developing report,” abuse of the words “tragic, tragedy, horrible or heartbreaking,” unkept promises to “stay on this or bring you more details as they emerge,” improper use of irony, tacking “-gate” to the end of words to indicate a scandal, and much more.

Did Pizza Hut Steal Neil Cavuto’s Idea?

neil cavuto_304x200In a Twitpic video this afternoon, Fox News’ Neil Cavuto‘s show tease claims Pizza Hut has made a fortune off his great culinary mind.

“Did I tell you that years ago, I came up with the idea for an all-you-can-eat meat pizza, with a cheese-filled crust,” Cavuto said, claiming that Pizza Hut has made a financial killing off his idea, in the form of the fast-food chain’s stuffed-crust pizza.

Cavuto then had words of advice for three former Taco bell interns, who claim they came up with the idea for the popular Doritos Locos Taco 19 years ago (Taco bell launched the item in 2012.)

“I’m telling you kids…you’re getting squat, because you didn’t think, just like I didn’t think,” Cavuto concluded.
