Biden shied away from news conferences, interviews in Year 1
As President Joe Biden wraps up his first year in the White House, he has held fewer news conferences than any of his five immediate predecessors at the same point in their presidencies, and has taken part in fewer media interviews than any of his recent predecessors.
'Between Two Ferns' plants lots of laughs in Netflix movie
Netflix via CNN(CNN) - "Between Two Ferns: The Movie" is perhaps inevitably best consumed in bite-sized bits, bringing back Zach Galifianakis from his popular web series as the worst (or depending on one's point of view, best) celebrity interviewer ever. The movie's conceit is hit-miss, but when it works -- yielding deadpan insults and pained expressions -- there are enough laughs to make digging up "Ferns" look like a fine idea. Again playing a twisted version of himself, Galifianakis is introduced at a North Carolina public-access station, very uncomfortably interviewing Matthew McConaughey. What ensues, then, is basically a standard road movie, interspersed with a star-studded array of "Ferns" interviews. "Between Two Ferns: The Movie" premieres Sept. 20 on Netflix.
