Patronizing News Anchor's Rant About Young People Sparks Discussion

Young people definitely get some interesting criticism in the news, like all the times Millennials have Killed an Industry, so this doesn't seem like much of a departure. In an interview on housing rights in Britain, a news anchor and landlord "reported" that young people don't have the skills to rent, since they don't know how to change lightbulbs or do basic tasks. This ruffled some feathers among young people and tenants.

jerry lewis gives awkward interview to the hollywood reporter

There’s no business like show business, and because of that, you don’t have to care about other people.

When Jerry Lewis, the Hollywood icon behind The Nutty Professor, agreed to sit down with The Hollywood Reporter, that didn’t necessarily mean he would be answering any questions. In fact, it means he'll be the one asking the questions, thank you very much.

Watch in horror as he wastes everyone’s time for seven minutes, parroting back whatever the last thing the interviewer asks him.

If nothing else, this should prepare you for your next job interview. If you find yourself in a rough patch, just start screaming "Why?" at the interviewer. It works.

The search for the real inventor of Bitcoin is over. According to the video description, the man in the video is the real deal:

Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright has publicly identified himself as Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. His admission ends years of speculation about who came up with the original ideas underlying the digital cash system. Mr Wright has provided technical proof to back up his claim using coins known to be owned by Bitcoin's creator. Prominent members of the Bitcoin community and its core development team have also confirmed Mr Wright's claim.


Wright seems completely uninterested in fame or recognition. He gruffly insists that he wants to stay out of the spotlight, so why would he do an interview at all? His reasoning, in what he says will be his one and only interview, is to put an end to the controversy surrounding the identity of Bitcoin's inventor for the sake of his family and staff.

We hate to admit it, but this is too good to be true.  This is a spectacular work of editing by a comedian inserting himself into a 2011 news report as an employee of "the house that beef built".  

It's even been confirmed by the news station that did the story.

Stanford ran train over Michigan State on Saturday, bringing home an impressive 45-16 Rose Bowl victory.

Christian McCaffery put on a heroic performance as the game's star running-back, but the poor kid couldn't catch a break from an adrenaline-charged douche who did everything but grab the fu*king microphone and chuck it through the goalpost during McCaffery's interview.

Real-talk bro, GTFO. There's fan, superfan, and whatever the heck that guy in the background was. Don't be that guy.

Video of The Day: Man Interviews Himself 38 Years in The Future

If you could ask your future self anything, what would it be?

When Peter "Stoney" Emshwiller was 18, way back in 1977, he captured footage of himself asking questions to his invisible future self. He planned on combining footage in the future and getting some answers.

The short clip below shows the 56-year-old man reflecting on his successes and failures. It is surprisingly heartwarming.

Emshwiller plans on releasing a full-length version of the interview he'll call Later That Same Life, which is currently being funded.

Here's what the filmmaker had to say about the project:

A recent health scare (happily a false alarm) made me realize I ain't gonna live forever, and that it's time to finish this project. So I'm finally going to (gulp) face my younger self and record the other half of the conversation. Then I'll edit all the footage together. The final illusion should be a humorous, touching, sometimes combative, always revealing, totally impossible conversation between a bright-eyed teen and his own middle-aged self.

Real Talk of The Day: Shia Labeouf Recounts His Many Run-Ins With The Law in Essay

Fun fact: Shia Labeouf has been arrested five times.

Even more fun fact: He made a "terrific egg sandwich" during his last incarceration.

The actor and walking performance art piece gabs about his many run-ins with the law in Prison Ramen, a new book about celebrities and how being locked up has affected them.

Let's break down Shia's arrests from E! News:

That time he stole some Nike Cortezes.

"I have been incarcerated five times. The first time I was only nine years old. It was in Pacoima, California. I was arrested for stealing a pair of Nike Cortezes from a local shop and held for six hours," he writes.

That time he stole a Gameboy Pokémon.

"The second time I was eleven, in the city of Tujunga, California. I was arrested for stealing a Gameboy Pokémon from Kmart. That time, too, I was in a substation for about six hours," he continues.

That time he tried to stab his neighbor.

"The third time I was twenty, in Van Nuys, California. I tried to stab my neighbor and spent two days in jail. While I was there, I at least understood that being in jail is not the move," he admits. "It sucks ass."

That time he wouldn't leave Walgreen's and that time he disrupted a Broadway show.

"The fourth time I was in Chicago and I wouldn't leave Walgreen's, so I was taken to spend the night in jail. For some reason, I had the best sleep ever," he writes. "The most recent time was 2014, when I was twenty-eight and in New York City. I went to see the play Cabaret. I didn't behave very well during the performance and ended up spending twenty-five hours or so behind bars..."

Actress Leah Remini is here to tell us all that Scientology is weird as hell.

Thanks for telling us something literally everyone already knew?

In an exclusive interview with ABC News, Remini recounts her over 30 years with the cult and her decision to leave the Church of Scientology.


"The decision to leave is you giving up everything you've worked for your whole life...As time goes on, you start to lose touch with the real world," she says in a preview of the interview.

She is also critical of actor Tom Cruise, one of the most notable Scientologists.

The full interview will air on 20/20on Friday, October 30 at 10 p.m., ET

Remini should probably be careful, though. There's an OT level XVIII SUPREME BEING on the loose.

New footage of a 15-year-old Michael Phelps was uploaded today where the now-Olympic Gold medalist says his goal was to just compete in multiple events in Athens.

He went on to win 6 gold and 2 bronze medals during those summer Olympic games.

What a humble kid!

Phelps goes on to talk about other teenager stuff, like getting a driver's license and becoming the best swimmer in the world. Ya know, struggles we all have.

One thing we know for sure, Phelps started doing his signature lip-licking thing at a very early age.

Charming everyman Tom Hanks must have been pretty bored yesterday.

He obviously had a hankering to do a Reddit AMA, even though he's already done one. But instead of waiting for Redditors to ask him again what kind of sandwich he prefers, the tenacious Tom went around to different subreddits to find questions he felt like answering.

The results are adorable.

He talked about what movie he made that he thinks deserves reconsideration.



He answered many questions.

Like, a part of his job many people may not know about:



Something he thought was awesome as a teen, but ridiculous now:



Gave a weird six-word story:



Gave advice on what to buy to fill an unknown hole in your life:



Gave his favorite TV theme song:



Gave what he thought would have been the most underwhelming announcement from NASA on Mars



Gave his scariest movie moment:



Apparently, he really, really hates reality TV.



He recommended a book on Soviet history:



And gave advice on what to do when you're under the weather.



What a dad.



And in the end, he gave his favorite quote:



Thanks, Tom Hanks.
