An almost daily roundup of stories that did not make it on to the show, for one reason or another
• In case you missed it, Alex had a great discussion with theologist du jour Reza Azlan about his now infamous appearance on Fox News, and what he calls the network’s “inherent anti-Muslim bias.”

In a not-so-surprising development, Fox News doubled down in its attack on Aslan’s credentials, both as a scholar and a Muslim, in a segment today. If you thought they could not dig themselves a deeper hole, well, you must not watch much Fox News.
• Consider yourself warned, Texas.
• I’m old enough to remember when TLC stood for “The Learning Channel.”
• Public art in Detroit takes a turn for the macabre
• Boris Karloff’s guacamole recipe

• Big congrats to the team for figuring out how to use Vine!
