Going Undercover Was the Only Way This Crime Reporter Could Get the Truth
Getty ImagesNo question, the doctor was looking at my shirt pocket. Did he see the tiny hole? If he did, that small opening presented a major problem. Did he recognize me?I was wearing thick glasses instead of my usual contacts. My on-air hair had never looked so disheveled. Even my friends wouldn’t recognize me without my usual television makeup. I was undercover and in disguise. At least I thought so. But the doctor’s wandering eyes were making me nervous.A source had told us this guy was lying to patients about his history as an obstetrician. He’d been hammered with malpractice suits, and lost, time after time after time. And the state had suspended his license. But state laws at the time didn’t require him to tell that to patients. Back then, to find a doctor’s legal history, a patient would have to search court files, which in some cases were sealed.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Wants You to Wear a F*cking Mask
Courtesy Ashley OsbornFew voices in the metal community are more recognizable—or ferocious—than the one wielded by Corey Taylor, who as frontman for horror-metal juggernaut Slipknot has rightly earned the nickname The Great Big Mouth, and whose work with Stone Sour has allowed him to naturally expand into the hard-rock mainstream. Taylor’s output covers a vast stylistic and emotional range, from rage and misery to heartbreak and longing, and thus it’s fitting that he’d continue pushing his creative boundaries by going it alone—and by venturing into sonic realms he’s yet to fully explore with either of his bestselling bands.That’s not to say that Taylor’s maiden solo outing, CMFT (out Oct. 2), is a radical departure from the sorts of tunes that have made him a genre heavyweight. Rather, it’s that the 13-song collection leans more heavily on musical avenues he’s only sporadically hinted at in Slipknot and Stone Sour, all of them filtered through a variety of diverse influences, be it country, hip-hop or ‘90s alternative rock. Leaning toward the softer side of the Taylor spectrum—a relative description, given that just about everything is more gentle than Slipknot—CMFT finds the singer broadening his horizons and showing off his considerable versatility.In other words, it’s an album that doesn’t pander, which also marks it as a Taylor effort through and through, since the 46-year-old vocalist has never been one to shy away from speaking his mind, including when it comes to politics—and, in particular, Donald Trump. His disdain for the commander-in-chief certainly hasn’t diminished during the pandemic, which has stymied his touring plans with both Slipknot and as a solo performer. Yet Taylor’s frustration with 2020 America extends beyond the president.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Online Art Sales See a Wild West Boom With Auction Houses Shut by COVID
Cindy Ord/Getty ImagesROME—In early 2021, the rare Sandro Botticelli masterpiece Young Man Holding a Roundel will be sold on an anonymous online auction through Sotheby’s in what will be a landmark blue-chip art sale in an industry that has suffered greatly during the pandemic with closed galleries, cancelled art fairs and shuttered auction houses.The painting, which billionaire Manhattan art collector Sheldon Solow bought in 1982 for $1.3 million, is expected to go for more than $80 million, marking the largest ever online art sale—pandemic or not. It is also what art dealers are calling a “test run” for the future of an industry that has long relied on physical sales to guarantee provenance on higher priced masterpieces and collectibles, according to Bloomberg.Sotheby's has so far declined to confirm if Solow is still the owner of the Renaissance painting, which was created in Italy in 1480 and which has spent the last seven years on loan to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. But the sale will eclipse the previous online sales record set last year when Sotheby's sold the so-called “Contemporary Curated” collection that featured an Andy Warhol and a Damien Hirst for $6.4 million.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Herd Immunity Doesn't Mean What Trump Thinks It Does
GettyThanks in no small part to the bloviating from politicians ranging from Boris Johnson to Donald Trump, talk of herd immunity has been inescapable during the coronavirus pandemic.Herd immunity is the theory that once a certain percentage of the population is immune to an infection, the infection can no longer find new people to claim and will effectively disappear. We also call that “exhaustion of susceptibles,” meaning that once there are no more susceptible people, the infection dies out. That’s the common way communicable diseases are controlled either naturally, or through vaccination.President Trump has flogged the concept as part of his broader suggestion that the pandemic will resolve itself. “It’s going to disappear—I still say it,” he said this week. “You’ll develop herd—like a herd mentality.” (It’s clear what he was trying to say.)Read more at The Daily Beast.

When Democratic Senators Sided With American Nazis to Stop Hollywood From Taking on Hitler
Photo Illustration by Kristen Hazzard/The Daily Beast/Photos GettyOn March 31, 1941, MPPDA president Will Hays released his annual report, titled Motion Pictures and National Defense. Although most of the 38-page document would be ignored by the Senate investigation of Hollywood, Hays outlined Hollywood’s response to the turmoil in Europe. Hays describes 1940 “as a period of supreme crisis in the history of the world.” Profits were the only true ideology in Hollywood, and the war was clearly affecting foreign sales. Hays listed fourteen countries that no longer bought Hollywood films and thirteen that were nearing the same position. The isolationist senators used this economic change as an explanation for why Hollywood made anti-Nazi films, but Hays also explained that the industry had simply shifted its export focus elsewhere.The MPPDA president also gave an overview of the kinds of films released over the past year. Hays categorized them in terms of drama, comedy, and music and singled out films that portrayed the “somber and satirical aspects of the tragedy of Europe.” Several films that would be discussed during the Senate investigation were listed, such as The Mortal Storm, The Great Dictator, Night Train to Munich, Foreign Correspondent, The Man I Married, and Pastor Hall. For Hays, the war in Europe was a natural topic for movies, but the small number of such films “spoke most emphatically against any charge that the screen was a breeder of hate.” Only 5 percent of films released in 1940 dealt with the European conflict in any capacity.While critics of Hollywood would soon refer to film primarily as a means of amusement, Hays defined film as “a medium of information, education, and entertainment.” Hays also stated that movies were an important force for national morale, which was proven by the Naval leaders who testified before the House Appropriations Committee two weeks prior to Hays’s report. After describing the industry’s growth in terms of exhibition policy and technology, Hays noted how Hollywood was leading the nation with its community service. The film industry raised millions of dollars for the Red Cross and donated thousands of films to health facilities, which was a testament to its civic responsibility.Read more at The Daily Beast.
