Andrea Tantaros is fed up with the Barack Obama administration and anyone that allowed it to rise to power.
On her Fox News radio show Thursday, the host went off on the Justice Department for tapping the phones and hacked the emails of reporter James Rosen.
This confirmation comes amidst an ongoing scandal in which the same department also obtained the phone records of several Associated Press members.
“This is what’s happening to our press,” Tantaros said on air. “This is Obama’s America. It’s like the Soviet Union. He said he would change the country. He said it … and a lot ofMore >
Robbie Rogers has signed a contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer, meaning he will soon become the first openly gay athlete to participate in an American team sport.
The former U.S. national team wing blogged in February that he was both homosexual and taking a break from the sport, writing at the time:
“Secrets can cause so much internal damage. People love to preach about honesty, how honesty is so plain and simple. Try explaining to your loved ones after 25 years you are gay.”
Since that time, Jason Collins has come out as gay and Rogers has receivedMore >
Frances Bean Cobain is not letting Kendall Jenner off the hook.
After the former slammed the latter as a self-absorbed idiot for Tweeting about the difficulty of her life, Jenner responded in fairly reasonable fashion.
She acknowledged her good fortune in life, but also took Cobain to task for judging her, essentially asking: Can’t wealthy people have problems, too?
So, with the contentious ball in Frances’ Twitter court, the 20-year old wrote back last night with a semi-apology (“I don’t know you nor do I think ur a bad person”), followed by a bashing of both Kendall and manyMore >

Amanda Bynes may be guilty of being an unhinged individual addicted to Twitter, wigs and strange behavior.
But she claims to be innocent of any pot smoking and/or bong throwing.
The troubled actress – who was arrested Thursday for disorderly conduct and taken for psychiatric evaluation – Tweeted a response to her alleged actions last night.

When New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Snooki run into each other on a Jersey Shore boardwalk, awkwardness ensues. For them. For THG, quality viewing.
During the meeting, which took place as they filmed separate segments for NBC’s Today, Snooki griped that Christie was standing too close to her.
Hilariously, he responded by standing even closer to the reality star.
CC then extended a hand to Snook (who was flanked by JWoww and Deena), she replied, “I just wanted to meet you, and just, hope you start to like us.”
As Snooki walks away, her facial expression is hilarious. More >
Justin Bieber is featured on a billboard in Los Angeles.
For a local tattoo parlor? For a new album? For the Chris Brown Fan Club?
Nope. For MinimumWage.com, an organization that believes a raise in the minimum wage will discourage business owners from hiring, which will negatively affect the unemployment rate among today’s youth.
Reads the sign:
“Why is Justin Bieber so sad? Could it be because 24% of teens who want a job can’t find one?”
We’re guessing it’s because Selena Gomez has left him lost and alone, but hey.
The ad then states that “teen unemployment makes us allMore >

The Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night, and it was a bit awkward … which is standard for Des.
Still, it began to encroach into awkward awkward … not cute awkward.
Obviously, she’s not gonna give away The Bachelorette spoilers or anything. But when Jimmy started asking her about Sean Lowe? A tad uncomfortable:Desiree Hartsock on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Part 1
She’d “probably” have accepted his proposal? Seriously?
Maybe she’s just being honest and was that into the guy, but you have to wonder from a girl who just came off her veryMore >

After a speech that saw a surprised President Obama heckled by an anti-war, anti-drone, and anti-Gitmo activist, the Internet was the big winner.
As Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin interrupted and harassed the POTUS during his speech on Thursday, Obama repeatedly told her:
“Let me address it!”
She was eventually removed from the room, and Obama went off-script to acknowledge her concerns and even urged people to “cut her some slack.”
And that was about it, which means we can move on and laugh at the obligatory auto-tuned musical version of events that someone made online.More >
