Here are Gotcha Media's favorite links from around the web today.
President Obama speaks about the #OccupyWallStreet protests for the first time, and appears to be down with the cause.
“Obviously I’ve heard of it, I’ve seen it on television. I think it expressed the frustrations that the American people feel that we had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, huge collateral damage all throughout he country, all across Main Street, and yet you’re still seeing some of the same folks who acted irresponsibly trying to fight efforts to crack down on abusive practices that got us into this problem in the first place. So yes I think people are frustrated and the protestors are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works.”
Conan O'Brien wasn't the only surprise guest on last night's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. During a bit with Shaq, Tracy Morgan walked on stage, didn't say a word, and laid Shaq over his lap to give him a spanking, recreating their unforgettable SNL sketch from so many years ago.
Conan O'Brien, back in New York for a week of shows at the Beacon Theater later this month, drops in on Jimmy Fallon to visit his old studio and pick up something very important he forgot.
Herman Cain gets yet another "Colbert Bump" with this segment in which Stephen defends Cain's complex views on homosexuality and race.
Jon Stewart documents the week the Media's coverage of #OccupyWallStreet went from "blackout" to "circus."
Aside from Bob "Better Call Saul" Odenkirk and a few other select moments, Breaking Bad is not a particularly hilarious show. But of course, 3-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston does have a history of comedy, from his days on Malcolm in the Middle, to his more recent appearances on SNL and the web show The Handlers. And then of course, there's his crowning jewel, Tim Whatley, the dentist who converts to Judaism for the jokes and causes Kramer to label Jerry an "anti-dentite." You can hear Bryan Cranston talk about his career with Marc Maron on today's WTF Podcast and watch a clip from Seinfeld below. Listen to Episode 216]
