“What was on me?” – Fox News host leaves the internet in stitches

Published

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham is breaking the internet after failing to understand there is a Netflix show called You

A commentator on her show was referring to the hit Netflix series, but she thought he was talking about her.

“Wait, wait, wait,” she said. “When did I mention measles?”

It left the internet feeling as if they were stuck in a hilarious comedy routine worthy of Saturday Night Live. Here’s the moment

“I don’t know,” said Arroyo. “It was on You.”

“What was on me?” Ingraham asked. “What are you talking about?”

“The measles and the vaccine episode was on You,” said Arroyo.

“We never did a measles and vaccine episode. Is this a joke?”

“I know!” Arroyo yelled, waving his arms furiously. “It was on You! It was on You!”

Ingraham continued to fail to understand there is a show on Netflix called You.

“Raymond!” Ingraham said. “I’ve never had measles. What are you talking about? This is stupid!”

Arroyo tried to explain: “It was an episode of a show, Laura.”

“What’s it called”?”

“You! You! It’s called You.”

Ingraham still didn’t get it.

“What’s he talking about? I’ve just never done a show on measles. I completely give up.”

The segment ended shortly after.

A recently ratified Writers Guild of America (WGA) contract is poised to revolutionise the landscape of Hollywood.

This monumental agreement brings forth fundamental alterations in the way the entertainment industry operates. In a nutshell, the contract redefines compensation structures, solidifying fair pay for writers and creators across various platforms.

One notable change is the integration of more equitable profit-sharing mechanisms, guaranteeing writers a more significant slice of the proverbial pie. Additionally, the contract underscores the importance of proper crediting and recognition for writers, ensuring their vital contributions are acknowledged and duly compensated.

Artificial intelligence was of course another major point of discussion with agreements outlined below stating:

“We have established regulations for the use of artificial intelligence (“AI”) on MBA-covered projects in the following ways:

  • AI can’t write or rewrite literary material, and AI-generated material will not be considered source material under the MBA, meaning that AI-generated material can’t be used to undermine a writer’s credit or separated rights. 
  • A writer can choose to use AI when performing writing services, if the company consents and provided that the writer follows applicable company policies, but the company can’t require the writer to use AI software (e.g., ChatGPT) when performing writing services. 
  • The Company must disclose to the writer if any materials given to the writer have been generated by AI or incorporate AI-generated material.
  • The WGA reserves the right to assert that exploitation of writers’ material to train AI is prohibited by MBA or other law.”

The WGA contract also takes steps to address issues of diversity and inclusion within the industry, fostering an environment that welcomes voices from all backgrounds and experiences. This shift towards a more inclusive landscape is seen as a crucial step towards rectifying historical disparities within the entertainment realm.

Prince Harry involved in ‘near catastrophic’ car chase

Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death

Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and her mother were involved in a “near catastrophic car chase” involving paparazzi photographers in New York.

The incident took place after they left the Ms. Foundation for Women, where Meghan was honoured for her work.

“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers,” said Prince Harry’s spokesperson.

The chase involved paparazzi driving on the sidewalk, running red lights and driving while taking pictures.

“I thought that was a bit reckless and irresponsible,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said.

Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death.

Princess Diana was killed when her limousine crashed as it sped away from chasing paparazzi in Paris in 1997.

Harry and Meghan stepped down from their royal duties in 2020, partly over what they described as intense media harassment.

Harry is currently involved in numerous court cases in London where he has accused papers of using unlawful methods to target him and his family.
