We can all agree the media carnival that was Justin Bieber's arrest and jail visit was profoundly irrelevant. A congresswoman talking about the NSA was booted off MSNBC yesterday to make room for "breaking" Justin Bieber news. I live in Miami Beach -- just blocks from the Bieber debacle -- and eve ...

There was no doubt, as 2012 got started, that Kenisha "Tip Drill" Myree was at the top of Miami's stripper food chain. The top-drawing dancer at King of Diamonds, she pulled in as much as 10 grand a shift. There were a couple nights, she says, where she brought home $20,000. Thanks to a jaw-droppin ... More >>
The injustice that began with the murder of Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin continues. As the trial of George Zimmerman, the man who shot the 17-year-old boy last year, gets underway in Sanford, I find it appalling that Seminole County Circuit Judge Debra Nelson did not allow a single African- ...

This is an actual press release sent out by an actual political party. The Republican Party of Florida to be exact. Someone (or perhaps multiple someones) actually wrote this, and made a photoshop and decided it would be a good idea to send out.
There's no way around it: If Mitt Romney loses Florida he'll lose the election. After months of polling and campaigning, the conventional wisdom is that if Romney fails to capture the Sunshine State's 29 electoral votes he's left with very few paths to Electoral College victory.Well, just a day befo ...

This Presidential election is enough to drive anyone (even Mitt Romney) to drink. After all, in the past few weeks, we've seen both candidates snipe at each other in the debates, watched aghast as Donald Trump failed yet again to be taken seriously, and stared in disbelief as Big Bird became caught ...

It was not long ago that we here at Crossfade knew Tip Drill simply as Miami's most recognizable stripper. But then a fall during one of her signature, death-defying slides down King of Diamonds' massive pole left her with a broken jaw, bringing a premature end to her days as the top money earner ...

Marco Rubio finally stepped off the sidelines of the GOP primary last night, backing Mitt Romney for president in an interview on Fox News. While the endorsement isn't all that surprising, Rubio's timing sparks a key question: Is he backing Romney because it's clear Mitt will hold off the competi ... More >>
What a difference four years make. Back in 2008, Charlie Crist played a crucial in the Republican primary by working to deliver Florida to John McCain. Now, in 2012, he's so fed up with shenanigans of this Primary season that according to Politico the now independent says he might just end up vot ... More >>
So, Marco Rubio is going around calling America "weakened." He blames it on Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. Well, MSNBC host Ed Schultz takes exception to the claim, and ripped Rubio in a 16-minute segment aired last Friday."Rubio is stupid, he doesn't even know he's offensive," says Schu ... More >>

Let's face it: With Americans getting portlier by leaps and bounds, we need a President who reflects our food-obsessed values. That's right: It is time again for a fat person to inhabit the White House.It's been almost a century since our last obese leader, William Howard Taft, got stuck in the Whit ... More >>
Will Brian Daboll be the man to turn around the Miami Dolphins' faulty offense? According to ESPN, he's just been hired as the new offensive coordinator. He's spent two years in the same position with the Cleveland Browns, but before that spent time on the staffs of the Dolphin's two biggest riva ... More >>
Aflcio via Flickr You'd never guess it by the numbers retail stores pulled in over the busiest shopping weekend of the year, but the National unemployment rate is 9.6 percent.

Our fellow Floridians in the Orlando area resoundingly kicked Rep. Alan Grayson out of office this election in a 19 point defeat. Apparently they do not care that the rest of America enjoys being entertained by his off-the-wall speeches on the House floor. He's already told Dick Cheney to literal ... More >>

Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman and current MSNBC host, laughed away talks he might run for Florida Senate: "I don't really think it would be good to run in 2010 with a party that is actively associating itself with the Taliban."

Steve SatterwhiteHere is how your basic "Matt Drudge is a homosexual" gossip item reads: "I heard from a friend of a friend of a friend that Drudge is totally gay" and then that person cites an interview Drudge gave to New Times in 2001, one of the few personal interviews Drudge has ever given. "So ... More >>
Somewhere, sometime ago in one of the many wonderful comments we get, someone accused me of blindly following MSNBC in my political mumblings. Which was funny to me because at the time I didn't watch much of the channel, and had never seen an episode of Countdown or The Rachel Maddow Show. Well, si ... More >>

DeLay's actual mugshot. I think MSNBC takes a sick delight in putting the most ridiculous Republicans on their programs just to let them sprout all sorts of nonsense. So naturally, Tom DeLay, the disgraced former Republican house majority leader, stopped by Hardball with Chris Matthew last night to ... More >>
Just Yesterday, we were talking about a Joe Scarborough Senate run in 2010. And why not? If Charlie Crist doesn't run, former Rep. Joe "I Have a TeeVee Show" Scarborough sounds just as good or better than Connie "Hey, Remember my Dad?" Mack IV, Vern "Not Katherine Harris" Buchanan, and Marco "Check ... More >>
By far the easiest "recession" story to write is finding weird, desperate postings on Craigslist. As if there aren't weird, desperate postings on Craigslist even in good economic times. That's just what MSNBC did, and they found a lady in Miami looking to trade a couple of hours of -- ahem -- "bo ... More >>
