‘The Daily Show’ leaks the ‘Fox News’ 8 p.m. anchor audition tape,’ and, hoo boy.

Here’s your reminder that it’s not just one bad apple, the entire culture at Fox News is toxic:

Stephen Colbert discovers some alarming foreshadowing in Bill O’Reilly’s novel. BE SCARED, STEPHEN.

A Few Remaining Bill O’Reilly Stories Before We Move On Forever, Hopefully

You know what you shouldn’t do? Threaten a reporter. Christ, what an asshole.

You know what else you shouldn’t do? Accidentally hand over your legal strategy to a reporter. It’s as if this guy has never dealt with the media before EVEN THOUGH HE IS IN THE MEDIA.

So, what’s Gilly reading in that one photo? Glad you asked because of course nerds figured it out:

“It is also written that there are annals in Asshai of such a darkness, and of a hero who fought against it with a red sword. His deeds are said to have been performed before the rise of Valyria, in the earliest age when Old Ghis was first forming its empire. This legend has spread west from Asshai, and the followers of R’hllor [changed to The Lord of Light in the photo] claim that this hero was named Azor Ahai, and prophesy his return. In the Jade Compendium, Colloquo Votar recounts a curious legend from Yi Ti, which states that the sun hid its face from the earth for a lifetime, ashamed at something none could discover, and that disaster was averted only by the deeds of a woman with a monkey’s tail.”

A monkey’s tail?

So maybe the next Doctor might be a woman after all? Or not? OH WHO EVEN KNOWS.

Mitt Romney should be given producing credit on Veep.
