The Daily Show’s fill-in host John Oliver held no prisoners tonight as he took ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner to task over his latest sexting allegations, skewering the mayoral wannabe for continuing to communicate with random women long after his resignation.
“Now, America is collectively experiencing déjà ewww,” declared Mr. Oliver, who dedicated nearly two full segments of the show to his take-down, aided by mock movie posters and racy props.
As we reported yesterday, Vice magazine recreated the means of suicide of seven female literary icons in a fashion spread called “Last Words.” But this morning, Vice, which normally prides itself on refusing to bow to the gods of taste or opinion, has removed the post from its website following general outrage after the spread was published online.
Of course, the images are still available in the print edition. Still, this seems to be a rare time when Vice has backed down and removed an offending photo spread from the Internet.
