Pennsylvania Songwriter Hits Girlfriend After Refusing to Sing About Her


Little-known 29-year-old singer Jason Banks has been charged with assault, after he reportedly choked and hit his girlfriend when she complained that he had never written a song about her. We bring this to your attention only to give kudos to MSNBC, which has foregone its usual seriousness and made its actual headline: “Maybe because ‘You Always Hurt the One You Love’ had already been done.” Some intern’s having fun over there.
