The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is opening a pop-up library of President Donald Trump’s tweets. The library, opening in New York City in June, “will be so tremendous that you’ll get tired of the tremendousness, so it will then close a few days later,” said Comedy Central in a press release. “Sad!”

On an unrelated note, Trump tweeted yesterday, “If the people of our great country could only see how viciously and inaccurately my administration is covered by certain media!”

The Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Sciences is taking steps to avoid a repeat of the mishap that led to the wrong film being named best picture at this year’s Oscars – but it doesn’t include firing PriceWaterhouse Coopers. While acknowledging, as PwC has, that the accounting firm was responsible for the debacle, the Academy is instead instituting new protocols. Those include a greater oversight role for PwC US chairman Tim Ryan, a third balloting leader who will sit in the control room with the directors, the return of one of the accountants in charge of balloting from 2002-2014, and the removal of electronic devices backstage (accountant Brian Cullinan had reportedly been tweeting backstage before handing presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway the wrong envelope).

Do you think the Academy should have replaced the accountants responsible for the Oscars mistake? Let us know in the new Cynopsis poll: http://cynopsis.com/poll/.

In a New York Times column on Wednesday, former FCC head Tom Wheeler lamented votes in the Senate and House to overturn rules that keep internet service providers from selling personal information. The bill, now headed for the POTUS pen, “not only gives cable companies and wireless providers free rein to do what they like with your browsing history, shopping habits, your location and other information gleaned from your online activity,” Wheeler warns Times readers, “but it would also prevent the Federal Communications Commission from ever again establishing similar consumer privacy protections…. I understand that network executives want to produce the highest return for shareholders by selling consumers’ information. The problem is they are selling something that doesn’t belong to them.” Wheeler also pointed to a recent FCC vote to stay requirements that internet providers take “reasonable measures” to protect consumers’ confidential information as another “gift to the industry” that poses a risk.
