Right-wing news outlet Newsmax critiqued Joe Biden's dog, 12-year-old German shepherd Champ. Host Greg Kelly pulls up a picture of the dog and says he "looks rough" and "needs a bath and a comb and all kinds of love and care". He goes on to reminisce about other White House dogs and wonders if this pooch is being properly cared for. Then he brings a couple of political commentators in, and one declares the dog looks "very unpresidential".
Disney Plus began streaming the Muppet Show on Friday, adding a disclaimer warning viewers about insensitive cultural content. "This programme includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures," it reads. "These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now," but "rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together." In one episode Johnny Cash plays a guitar in front of a Confederate flag, and in another Spike Milligan appears in multiple national costumes, "including as a Chinese person with exaggerated front teeth and a long braid". Then there's Joan Baez speaking in an Indian accent after talking about Mahatma Gandhi. The disclaimer has prompted criticism and cries of "cancel culture".

3. "Just had the AstraZeneca vaccine. Tasting notes: An unpretentious vaccine, best served chilled. Sour aftertaste of nationalism, but only for xenophobes. Everyone else will enjoy its generosity. Best paired with pork. Or fish. Or anything. If you can taste food, it's working," tweets @thewritertype.
