James Corden: The talk show host for the internet age – 60 Minutes

Some of you may know James Corden as the frisky, funny British host of “The Late Late Show” – one of Viacom/CBS’ own. But if you are not one to stay up past 12:30 a.m., then maybe you’re one of the hundreds of millions who have caught Corden on his YouTube channel. Taking a talk show stuck in an ‘after hours’ time-slot, and making it available online around the globe.

With charm and wit, Corden gets A-list stars to open up in a way that seems to surprise them as much as us. Amazing for someone who was virtually unknown in the U.S when he moved here six years ago.  But James Corden will tell you he had already put in his 10,000 hours – a deft physical actor, who, by his late 20s, had achieved success and fame in Britain.

Opinion | Parler and other alternative social media look likely to host the battle over truth

Twitter-analog Parler saw a short-term surge in popularity when the original Twitter labeled a tweet of President Trump’s for the first time this summer; following the election Parler’s user base has ballooned again, along with a rise in audience for MeWe (a little more like Facebook) and Rumble (more like YouTube). The upside of the shift in Twitter’s and Facebook’s tactics is, of course, that the most harmful lies on the Internet can no longer spread unchecked to billions of users who never sought them out. The downside is that those who do seek them out by leaving for an edgier alternative are far less likely to be exposed to counterclaims — and more likely to fall forever down the rabbit hole.

Whether these alternative platforms can really replace their inspirations is dubious. The bigger sites still have the alluring advantage of being, well, bigger. And radicalism on the Internet
