By now you've heard of the case of Curtis Reeves, the accused ex-Florida cop who shot and killed a man, Chad Oulson, in a movie theater because the Oulson was texting his 2 year old daughter's baby sitter to check on her before the movie started.

I know many people are anxious to see the coming attractions, but getting into an altercation over someone silently sending a message is a bit of text rage if you ask me. But this retired cop had his reasons for shooting the unarmed texter. The dude who was doing the message sending attacked the ex chief of police -- with popcorn. Not even the box, just the contents. Perhaps it was the buttery flavored topping that caused the outrage. Hey, if the Twinkie Defense worked in the Harvey Milk murder case, why not give buttered popcorn it's chance?

But in any case, there's a dead man and a defendant now in custody. The accused shooter is looking for bail and during his hearing Friday, the DA's office provided the video of the assault.

So now you can make up your own mind by watching it. One thing's for sure, it didn't take long for the ex-cop to fast-draw his gun and shoot. Was he actually just waiting for an excuse to pop the texting man? Well, in any case, once again the familiar Florida defense is being used -- Stand your ground. And in this case, it didn't seem to sway Circuit Judge Lynn Tepper . Bail was denied.

Told ya so! Ailes, Fox "have a lot more to fear from" fired Brian Lewis than Lewis does "from Ailes & his toadies."

ClusterFox indeed.

I so called this one. In my post of a few days ago, "Fox News [sic] boots Executive VP, top strategist, Roger Ailes BFF Brian Lewis," I wrote:

Do we smell a future tell-all book deal?

No, no please... hold your applause. Well, if you insist.

As you may recall, Lewis was the communications chief and a top strategist for Fox who was kicked to the curb after an internal investigation. Apparently, his “conduct” was in question. That conduct related "to financial irregularities, as well as for multiple, material and significant breaches of his employment contract” per the Los Angeles Times.

He was also Roger Ailes’ trusted BFF for decades.

And now he's threatening to leak some gory details about his now-former BFF and, of course, Fox.

There may not be a book in the works-- yet -- but the fun is about to begin. Buckle up!

Politico:

In a new statement, Lewis's lawyer says that Ailes and Fox News should be fearful of what secrets Lewis may reveal now that he is no longer bound by a confidentiality agreement.

"First, Brian Lewis no longer has any confidentiality obligation to Newscorp or Roger Ailes because of the false and malicious statements made by Fox to date," Judd Burstein writes in a statement provided to Gawker, a website that has long been a thorn in Ailes's side. "Second, Roger Ailes and Newscorp have a lot more to fear from Brian Lewis telling the truth about them than Brian Lewis has to fear from Roger Ailes and his toadies telling lies about Brian Lewis."

This is going to be sooo good. Get out the popcorn. My treat!
