Samantha Bee brings biting satire, star power to D.C. on Trump?s 100th day
When comedian Samantha Bee announced in late January that she would be holding an alternative White House Correspondents? Dinner, it was not yet clear that President Trump would not attend the actual dinner itself. By the time the weekend rolled around, though, Trump?s decision not to attend the official event ? coupled with the White House Correspondents? Association?s aggressive reorientation of their dinner around the group?s role as a defender of the First Amendment and grantor of scholarships to student journalists ? gave Bee?s ?Not the White House Correspondents? Dinner? a different flavor.
Turkey blocks access to Wikipedia
By Can Sezer and David Dolan ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey has blocked online encyclopaedia Wikipedia, the telecommunications watchdog said on Saturday, citing a law allowing it to ban access to websites deemed obscene or a threat to national security. The move is likely to further worry rights groups and Turkey's Western allies, who say Ankara has sharply curtailed freedom of speech and other basic rights in the crackdown that followed last year's failed coup. "After technical analysis and legal consideration ... an administrative measure has been taken for this website (Wikipedia. ...

After the Fyre Festival disaster, maybe don't trust models like Bella Hadid when they sell you things
Now that the complete disaster that was Fyre Festival is over, it's time for the very attractive people who promoted the event to apologize. On Saturday, model Bella Hadid let her fans know she was sorry about what went down. SEE ALSO: Here's the official postmortem statement from Fyre Festival organizers ??... pic.twitter.com/5XqHXBGIn9 ? Bella Hadid (@bellahadid) April 29, 2017 That's an apology, sort of. I mean, maybe don't promote some totally random thing that you've never experienced or barely know about next time. SEE ALSO: Instagram influencers are utter nonsense, and Fyre Fest proves it Hadid was one of the models?along with Elsa Hosk, Emily Ratajkowski, Lais Ribeiro, and Hailey Baldwin?who hyped up Fyre Festival on Instagram. @rose_bertram: "Make sure to get your tickets for @fyrefestival ?weekend two still available! #fyrefestival". #haileybaldwin #bellahadid #rosebertram #HaileyUpdates A post shared by Hailey Baldwin Updates (@baldwinsupdate) on Apr 4, 2017 at 6:43pm PDT In case you were wondering, Fyre Festival did not look like this. Instead, it was filled with disaster relief tents, gourmet meals consisting of cheese slices on bread, and fleeing festival-goers?many of whom paid thousands of dollars for the privilege. Hadid and pals weren't the only models promoting the festival. The organizers also invited less famous models and "influencers" to attend for free if they posted about the event on Instagram. Amanda Riley told her tragic story to The Hollywood Reporter. "I was in L.A. about six months ago when I was offered these tickets ? everything paid for. The organizers were trying to get a lot of promotion from models. A couple of friends and I were going to go; everything was paid and comped in exchange for a couple of posts to help them with marketing." Which she did! Packing to leave my home in Los Angeles to head back east to my home and my @wilhelminamodels family in NYC for 24 hours before heading to FYRE festival in the Bahamas for the weekend. Los Angeles will always be my home and this is probably the hardest it's ever been to leave but I'll be back soon (hopefully) Until next time LA xo ? #LifeOfAmandaRiley A post shared by Amanda Riley Ferree (@lifeofamandariley) on Apr 25, 2017 at 6:41pm PDT It turns out she got stranded in Miami, so she didn't get to witness the horror in the Bahamas for herself. "I got lucky since I didn't pay upfront for anything," she wrote. "Worst case, I have to buy one flight back to New York." Um, sad? Anyway, she ends her story with this: "I?m staying out of it because I?m kind of complete with it. My friends and family are safe. And I didn?t pay for anything. So I just don?t want anything to do with that company anymore or deal with these people." Unlike Hadid, she doesn't even apologize for shilling for Fyre Festival?although, to be fair, she didn't promote it as hard. The lesson here: Don't do things just because models tell you to. Because there's a pretty good chance they'll keep promoting things they know nothing about for cash and free stuff. WATCH: This electric surfboard can move without the waves
