    RUSH: The Khashoggi situation, and there’s some things about this guy that I don’t think are being widely reported exactly who he is. The Drive-Bys… Let me just tell you what the Drive-Bys purpose here is, again. The Drive-Bys are trying as hard as they can to link Donald Trump to Khashoggi’s murder. By the way, just so you know, there are a couple of CNN infobabes who are pronouncing the name “Khashog-gee” because there’s two G’s in there. Every time I’ve heard the word, the name pronounced, it’s always been “Kah-show-gee,” Adnan Khashoggi pronounced his name that way. Robin...

Called the Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, the initiative was spearheaded by Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm; Maria Eitel, the co-chair of the Nike Foundation; the powerhouse attorney Nina Shaw; and Freada Kapor Klein, the venture capitalist who helped pioneer surveys on sexual harassment decades ago. The commission’s mission, according to a news release, is to “tackle the...

    Even though Edie was totally detestable on “Desperate Housewives,” something tells me that Nicollette Sheridan didn’t deserve the palm-to-the-face allegedly delivered by her boss, producer Marc Cherry. She’s currently suing the studio for damages and wrongful termination after Cherry killed off her character shortly after their kerfuffle. After Teri Hatcher also supposedly complained about Cherry’s abuse, he allegedly said, “I hope [she] gets hit by a car and dies.” Geez, he must be a great guy to work for. Hollywood seems to be a breeding ground for tyranny and narcissism. Here are nine more of the scariest bosses in Tinsel...

Daley whose last name more or less owned that political office the way most families would takeover the dining table. The Hollywood fundraiser will be held...

    Thank you, Mel Gibson. Who would ever think that a drunken, anti-Semitic rage from a gazillionaire movie star would go right to the core of the Democratic Party's problems? Meet the Brothers Emanuel. Brother Ari is a partner in the Hollywood talent agency Endeavor, a leading liberal light in the film community. Brother Rahm is the former Clinton White House aide turned Democratic congressman from Chicago. As luck would have it, Rahm is also the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
