This is the music video the members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot made after they were beaten, pepper-sprayed and whipped by Russian Cossack militia. Brave women.

Wow New York Post. I guess the outrageous attack on a punk rock band calls for an outrageous page one …

Real-life members of Congress love the delicious evilness of House of Cards too as they reenacted some of Rep. Frank Underwood’s famous lines. Netflix released House of Cards’ second season today, because what says love and Valentine more than that show?

luxe accommodations for reporters in sochi … not really

Want to know what it’s like to be an American reporter covering the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia? It isn’t pretty … if you go by what the reporters are tweeting. The image above was tweeted by @stacystclair from the Chicago Tribune of the water in her hotel room.

She tweeted:

"My hotel has no water. If restored, the front desk says, ‘do not use on your face because it contains something very dangerous.’ #sochi2014"

Later she wrote: “Water restored, sorta. On the bright side, I now know what very dangerous face water looks like. #Sochi #unfiltered
