Before a law was passed creating new disclosure rules, it regularly fanned out mailers to voters targeting Democratic legislators, riling … [Read more...] about MassFiscal has quietly created another nonprofit that’s become its biggest funder

Justin Jacobs IndyStar correspondent Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Jul 6, 2018 It's something parents tell their teens at least once a week: "Go clean your room." But when your teen is a social media celebrity with more than 3 million followers, even that can take a surreal turn. Douglas Wright, 51, owns Doug's Franklin Auto Care Center. Last month, he sat down in a customer's minivan and heard giggling from the back seat. The customer's daughter was staring at her phone, watching Wright's 17-year-old daughter, Zoe Laverne, perform live on lip-sync video platform Musical.ly. "I told the girl: 'Send Zoe a message to clean her room.' The girl responded, 'I can't talk to her that way, she's famous," Wright said. "I told her, 'Sure, but I can. I'm her father.' So I called Zoe on FaceTime. Then the girl watched my daughter talking to me on her phone, but also watched me talking to her in the car." If that sounds confusing — almost … [Read more...] about Greenwood teen has 3M Musical.ly fans. But after being bullied, she goes to school alone
Sarah K Wood, [email protected] Published 8:40 p.m. UTC Jun 28, 2018 A group of Southerners from Birmingham, Alabama are taking the internet by storm with videos depicting life in the South. The videos from 'It's a Southern Thing' are clever and catchy, engaging viewers across the country and quickly gaining the attention of audiences worldwide. Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Alexa was Southern? Or how about those times you wish your family feud had a referee?

Well, you’ll have to watch to get your answers- and it’s totally worth it— the skits are a hilarious parody on Southern life and will leave you laughing for hours. "So True, Y'all" series, "Backporch Bickering," and "Southern People's Court" are all a part of its video presence on Facebook and Youtube and the team is on a rhythm of producing a video every week, keeping the … [Read more...] about ‘Southern Facebook sensation’ goes viral

This Father’s Day, I thought a lot about what it means to be a good father. You see, in my mind, I am a father first. Yes, I worked at the White House. Yes, I now work for Will Ferrell’s Funny Or Die. Yes, I am a sad New York Mets fan. But before all of these things, I am a father. It’s the most important job I will ever have. Unfortunately, in today’s America, considering yourself a “father first” is not always expected by employers or society at large. Last month, I received glowing nods of approval and literal pats on my back for bringing my two kids into their doctors’ appointments while my wife was traveling. I tried not to laugh at how ridiculous this is — that the bar of expectation for a father’s responsibility is so low. But here we are. I am praised for “babysitting” my own children. For the record, it’s not “babysitting” when it’s your own children. But thanks for the kudos! We live in … [Read more...] about Opinion: My ‘Family Leave’ Was a Well-Timed Government Shutdown
