How To Handle The Holidays Like A Boss — They seem to start airing earlier every year: saccharine tearjerker commercials selling diamonds or tissues or cars, all wrapped in shiny red bows and normative family cheer. When Best Buy hawks Christmas jingles well before Halloween, it's clear there's no rest for the grinchy. Media can be extremely difficult to consume during the winter holiday season.

Everything Wrong With The Daily Caller's "Syria-sly Hot" Listicle — It takes a certain kind of disgusting for a news editor to look at millions of people suffering through one of the world's worst humanitarian crises and think, "Hey, that'd make a great cheesecake listicle!"

SEO Madness Turns Emma Watson Into Malala’s White Savior — Has anyone ever needed a white savior less than Taliban-vanquishing, school-building, Nobel Prize-winning Malala Yousafzai ? A youth education activist in Pakistan at age 12, she survived an attempted assassination at 15 when the Taliban shot her in the head for publicly opposing their ban on girls' education.

Think Reality TV Is Sexist? Blame Donald Trump. — Trump was also a central force in introducing the now-ubiquitous Angry Black Woman trope to reality TV audiences, through the intentionally polarizing editing and framing of a contestant named Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth. Though America's Next Top Model invoked that stereotype half a year earlier, Tyra Banks' series aired on lesser-watched UPN and targeted a niche audience of girls and young women.

Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth about Guilty Pleasure TV — Reality Bites Back by Jennifer Pozner: Nearly every night on every major network, “unscripted" (but carefully crafted) “reality" TV shows routinely glorify retrograde stereotypes that most people would assume got left behind 35 years ago. In Reality Bites Back, media critic Jennifer L. Pozner aims a critical, analytical lens at...

Amy Poehler's New Film "They Came Together" Is Over-the-Top Stupid in the Best Possible Way — Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler play painfully stereotypical lovebirds in rom-com spoof "They Came Together." If NYC single life actually resembled every bad rom-com ever, I'd be telling you about my ultimate meet-cute right now: me, a feminist media critic alone at the Brooklyn Academy of Music to review a movie for Bitch, him a handsome, witty stranger reading Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine.
