Thursday media roundup: Tina Fey, Ben Roethlisberger and Glenn Beck

Tina Fey won an SAG award and now she's having another baby!

It’s Thursday, and that means media news! ("It does?" Just go with it.) Get ready for your latest roundup of the day’s media and pop culture news:

»Tina Fey is having another baby! Amidst all the controversy over whether "30 Rock" will or won’t continue past next season, Tina Fey announced yesterday that she’s pregnant with a second child. This news comes hot on the heels of Fey publicly grappling with the decision whether or not to have a second child. As she wrote (forgive the odd syntax of a "New Yorker" abstract):

"[T]he worst question [to ask a woman] is: "How do you juggle it all?" The second-worst question is: "Are you going to have more kids?" … That is why the writer feels obligated to stay in the business, and that is why she can’t possibly take time off for a second baby, unless she does, in which case that is nobody’s business. Does the writer want to have another baby? Or does she just want to turn back time and have her daughter be a baby again?"

Guess she decided!

»Ben Roethlisberger is saving himself for marriage, kind of: In the most hilarious media news of the day, two-time Super Bowl winner and two-time subject of sexual assault accusations Ben Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he’s waiting until after the wedding to live with his fiancee: "Mr. Roethlisberger cited the couple’s religious faith and beliefs as the reasons for not living together until marriage."

So many jokes! Let’s see how many punchlines we can think up: "It was then that I carried you, into a empty bar bathroom"; "Blessed are the meek, for they shall keep their dirty mouths shut"; "Do unto others." Make your own, in the comments!

»Twisting the Glenn Beck knife: Glenn Beck only announced the end of his Fox News show yesterday, and already his arch-rival MediaMatters.org is dancing on his grave. The website is celebrating his departure from the airwaves by unveiling a list of "The 50 Worst Things Glenn Beck Said on Fox News." From Beck implying that George Soros was plotting to have him assassinated, to Beck explicitly stating that Barack Obama wants to drive everybody in America into poverty, it’s full of howlers.
