Count Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane among Tabloid Carlson's critics.
MacFarlane posted on Twitter Sunday that he was ashamed to be under the same corporate roof as Carlson. I'd not be surprised to find he isn't alone in that belief. Carlson's nightly garbage hour on Fox Shmooze brings big ratings, but Family Guy has been around much longer, and while it's an equal opportunity offender, I'm surprised MacFarlane hasn't previously used it to vent his frustrations with a charlatan posing as a journalist like Carlson is.
Let's imagine what MacFarlane's main alter ego, Peter Griffin, might say:
From what has been reported, Biles is dealing with "the twisties", a mental block that is the gymnastics equivalent to the "yips" in golf or baseball. That Biles is putting her focus on one of the tougher disciplines in her sport speaks to the fact that she wants to prove she can still perform at her level. She has been an inspiration to her teammates, as Jade Carey won the gold medal in the floor exercise today, and MacKayla Skinner took home a silver medal.
Prayers from this desk to Simone for tomorrow.
Wyatt has been off television since mid-April, and it's been reported that he had a difficult time dealing with the death last year of former tag team partner and close friend Luke Harper (Jon Huber). Wyatt had been working toward a return later this month, presumably for Summerslam, set for August 21 in Las Vegas. Former ring announcer JoJo Offerman, Wyatt's wife, was quietly let go some months back, and the couple have two young children.
The decision to cut Wyatt is said to be another case of "budget cuts", which for many is a difficult pill to swallow, considering the company is still turning major profits due to their megabucks deals with Fox and NBC-Universal-Comcast, but are dropping talent on whims, thanks to President-Chief Financial Officer Nick Khan, who has been with the company a year as of this month. On message boards, fans are citing the returns of part-timers such as John Cena, who's working a few dates while also promoting "The Suicide Squad" (opening later this week), and Bill Goldberg, both of whom have been given main event matches at Summerslam in order to juice PPV buy rates.
