This is what Charlottesville looks like when people march for peace

There's nothing that can undo the harm done by the white supremacist rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend.  Three people are dead.

'Game of Thrones' is proving itself to be leak-proof

What is dead may never die — and what is Game of Thrones will never be defeated by leaks. It's been a rough ride for HBO recently.

Writing in a Facebook post Wednesday, the CEO said white supremacists and neo-Nazis are a "disgrace," while criticizing the "polarization in our culture."
