Morning Coffee (5/16/16)

Me elsewhere: Your TV news for the week and NBC's fall schedule.

Only a Democrat can stop Trump now

The West needs to stop panicking about Russia's "hybrid" warfare

Whoa: The day we discovered our parents were Russian spies

SIGH: CBS Passes on Nancy Drew Adaptation For Testing “Too Female” For Lineup (Also, not that this isn't terrible, but what did they think they were getting when they ordered NANCY DREW? How was that not expected to test female??)

Wow: This Ancient Laptop Is The Only Key To The Most Valuable Supercars On The Planet

Robert Downey Jr. said Gwyneth Paltrow is his free pass - to kiss on set when cameras are rolling. You know, when it is literally his job. I have a lot of questions, primarily: Does he no longer take roles where he has to kiss anyone ELSE?
