Donald Trump denies he's using the AT&T-Time Warner merger to get revenge on CNN

TwitterFacebook

President Donald Trump was always against a merger between AT&T and Time Warner, and he’s always hated CNN. So the appearance that he was using his position to force Time Warner to ditch CNN to close the $85 billion deal made a strange, vindictive kind of sense. 

Now, however, Trump is denying any attempts to exact revenge on his cable news nemesis. 

Trump said he “didn’t make that decision. That was made by a man who is actually a very respected person, a very, very respected person,” Variety reported. Trump made the comments—likely about Justice Department antitrust chief Makan Delrahim—during his trip through Asia.  Read more…

Usain Bolt's final race ended with an unexpected injury, but he's still a legend

TwitterFacebook

This wasn’t supposed to be how it ended.

What should have been a triumphant finish to a momentous career ended in injury when Usain Bolt fell to the track in the midst of his last-ever race at the IAAF World Championships in London on Saturday.

Bolt had apparently developed a cramp in his left hamstring just after taking the baton in his anchor leg of the 4×100 relay and was unable to finish.

The United Kingdom went on to win the race, and America and Japan took second and third as Bolt’s teammates helped him limp off of the track. Read more…

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and we feel … pretty hyped, actually.

That’s because while the new trailer for Thor: Ragnarok promises doom and destruction, it also promises a really good time. 

Thor and Hulk, the two Avengers who sat out Captain America: Civil War, are reunited here in the furthest reaches of space, where they’re forced to face off in a gladiatorial duel. Don’t worry, though – they’re friends from work.

Tessa Thompson and Jeff Goldblum join the MCU as two new characters who encounter Thor on the planet Sakaar. Meanwhile, Meanwhile, Hela (Cate Blanchett), the goddess of death, has been unleashed and looks ready to wreak havoc on Asgard. And, of course, Loki’s still kicking around and causing trouble for everyone. Read more…

Teen Groot will steal every 'Avengers: Infinity War' scene he's in, just watch

TwitterFacebook

You thought Baby Groot was a stone-cold scene thief? Just wait.

There’s so much to unpack from a second viewing of the Avengers: Infinity War footage that first played at D23 last and came out for an encore at Comic-Con on Saturday night, but there was one thing I utterly missed the first time that fully stood out the second:

Teen Groot.

We first met the brooding, game-obsessed teenaged Groot in one of the post-credits scenes from Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, when Peter Quill was giving him a fatherly talking-to, and he wan’t having any of it. Well, he’s barely aged at all by the time we get to Infinity War — and so settled into the background that I didn’t see him the first time around. Read more…

'Arrow' star proves he's an actual superhuman with a jaw-dropping 'Ninja Warrior' run

TwitterFacebook

WOW.

Stephen Amell stars in The CW’s hit DC Comics superhero series, Arrow. But did you know he’s also an IRL superhuman who possesses powers above and beyond the normal person?

It is well known that Amell performs many of his own stunts on Arrow, but you never really know how much is physical prowess and how much is the illusion of fictional TV. That’s why the star’s #RedNoseDay appearance on American Ninja Warrior is so damn impressive.

In front of Ninja Warrior‘s cameras, Amell has nowhere to hide. Watch now as he demolishes the course in just a single attempt, and makes it look easy in the process: Read more…
