Web Roundup: Trevor Noah’s Offensive Tweets & Cracking Down on Cyberattacks

Hosted by

Comedian Trevor Noah is set to become the new host of The Daily Show after Jon Stewart steps down. But the comic is in hot water after a bunch of unsavory jokes were discovered in his archived Twitter feed. There were fat jokes, jokes criticizing Israel and jokes making fun of Jews and women. The whole PR nightmare points to a new paradigm in comedy. You are what you tweet, forever and ever…

Also, a look at President Obama’s move to bolster cyber security by establishing the first sanctions program, which will allow the administration to punish people who engage in cyber attacks or cyber espionage.
