Mediaite has a confusing apology from Whoopi Goldberg to The New York Times on “The View,” in which she expressed regret over calling the newspaper’s reporting “shoddy” when it left her off a list of past black Oscar nominees.

Oh, gross: Geekosystem covers a new study that shows that 7 out of 10 coffee tables in single men’s apartments had fecal bacteria on them. SICK SICK SICK!
