    The latest telecast of the Emmy awards on CBS drew the lowest audience ever, 11.4 million, and that is no surprise. This show could not have been more predictable -- quickly devolving into a boorish hours-long festival of Trump-bashing and Hillary-mourning. Awards shows used to be blockbusters for TV. But in the Age of Trump, they’re becoming screaming political spectacles, like the infamous Paul Wellstone funeral/pep rally of 2002. The red-state audience knows it’s going to be a leftist hootenanny attacking conservatives, all night long. Why put up with it? So they don’t bother. Naturally, the Hollywood crowd gave out...

    A group calling itself the Women’s Media Summit has a radical plan for fixing Hollywood’s gender imbalance. Boycott Hollywood movies that don’t meet the group’s definition of a gender-balanced production. What does that actually mean? Another goal is to have production companies adopt a labeling system, similar to the “No animals were harmed in the making of this film,” but for equitable gender representation behind-the-scenes and on the screen. Boycotts are hardly new on the left. Just ask Chik-fil-A, which endured a progressive-powered boycott following news that the company’s founder didn’t support same sex marriage. That’s a position President Barack...

    Vietnam Veterans for Factual History ^ | 9/22/17 | Steve Sherman
    Steve Sherman and VVFFH are reviewing each episode, pointing out the falsehoods, misrepresentations, outright lies and propaganda as they come up. Here is a summary of the first episode: Segment One: (1945-1959) Fails to mention that Ho Chi Minh was a Comintern (Soviet) agent for nearly 20 years, not a nationalist as portrayed in the documentary. If he was a true nationalist, he would have worked with the other anti-French nationalists (VNQDD, Dai Viet, Catholic, Cao Dai, etc.) instead of betraying them to the French Surete to be imprisoned or killed. He also murdered many anti-French nationalists and Vietnamese patriots...

    Hollywood Reporter ^ | 9/3/2017 | Ariston Anderson
    The British director says it's no accident that he made a historical film that seeks to dismantle Muslim stereotypes. Stephen Frears returns to royal territory with the debut of his new film, Victoria & Abdul, about an unusual relationship the queen had toward the end of her life. Judi Dench returns to form as Queen Victoria in the late 19th century. Bored of her royal duties, and increasingly depressed at the world around her, she meets Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a handsome Indian clerk who is recruited to be a part of a Golden Jubilee ceremony. They grow closer and...
  • 'Stupidly politically correct society is the death of comedy', warns veteran comedian Mel Brooks

    society's "stupidly politically correct" sensibilities will lead to the "death of comedy", the veteran Hollywood comedian Mel Brooks has warned. Brooks, known for his plethora of acclaimed comedy movies, said political correctness was becoming a stranglehold on comedians. "It's not good for comedy. Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks," he said. "Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering in the king's ear, always telling the truth about human behaviour." The producer and director said that his iconic western parody Blazing Saddles could not be made in today's political climate.

    The Women’s Media Summit, a group of more than 100 leaders from various industries, has issued a white paper outlining a plan of action for “eliminating gender inequity in U.S. entertainment media.” One of its strategies is to “boycott films that score poorly on gender equity.” “Women hold only 3% of above-the-line and greenlighting positions in the media industry and are vastly underrepresented as protagonists and lead characters in film and television,” according to the white paper (read it here). In film, “Women hold only 17% of influential positions behind-the-scenes as directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors, and cinematographers. This...

    You'd think Hillary Clinton's fans in the news and entertainment industries would've moved on from the 2016 election by now. But you'd be wrong. Many reporters, singers, anchors, actors, editors, and funnymen are still in mourning over the former secretary of state's second botched attempt at capturing the White House. Some are in greater pain than others, but even those who are trying to hide their grief show obvious signs they're not quite ready to concede she lost to a former reality TV host. Late-night comedian Stephen Colbert, for example, embodied this sort of gloomy wistfulness this week when he...

    Ellen DeGeneres told Megyn Kelly during her show Wednesday that she wouldn’t have President Donald Trump on because he’s “dangerous to the country” and “the world.” “I just, you know, he is who he is, and he has enough attention, and he has his Twitter account, and he has ways to get his message across,” the 59-year-old host of “The Ellen DeGerenes Show” explained. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) “There’s nothing that I am going to say to him that is going to change him, and I don’t want to give him a platform because it just validates him,” she added. “And for me...

    ABC is developing a comedy about an undocumented family with “New Girl” writer and co-executive producer David Feeney, Variety has learned. Titled “Sanctuary Family,” the single camera comedy would follow a hard-bitten husband and empathetic wife who butt heads over the chaos created when they provide sanctuary for their undocumented nanny and her family. This is the latest project about immigration to go into development at the broadcast networks in recent weeks. Gina Rodriguez has set up Latino-led series at CBS and The CW. At CBS, drama “Have Mercy” centers around a Latina doctor who is unable to practice when...

  • The Megaphone Left vs. Non-Megaphone America

    There is a highly visible split in America that is barely recognized and seldom talked about, but is growing both in reality and in understanding in the new age of technology. Those who have a megaphone for what they want to say and preach…and those who don’t. This is not your traditional haves and have nots. This cuts differently. Those who have a megaphone — which I am defining as the ability to reach large numbers of people through social media, normal media and other means — include the traditional media, the emerging media, public media, the music industry and...

Pro tip, Tinseltownies: Swapping your jazz hands for middle fingers and waving resistance fists at your customer base is bad for business. Let us count the waning ways. Emmy emetics. Who wanted to see smirking Stephen Colbert lead a cast of Botoxed starlets and men in hot pants, handing out TV industry awards to diamond-draped elites hoisting up their gilt statues as emblems of victory on behalf of the hegemonically...

    "We have been attacked," Morgan Freeman stoically announces. "We are at war." The Oscar-winning actor has played the president of the United States in a time of crisis (in 2008's "Deep Impact"), but this time he's speaking as himself, as a citizen. In a video from the activist news organization ATTN:, Freeman encourages Americans of every ideological stripe to look with clear eyes at Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Russian President Vladimir Putin, he argues, wasn't just punking the U.S. He was trying to undermine the country's government and values. "Imagine this movie script," Freeman says, and then...

He said Blazing Saddles, his Western spoof about a black sheriff in a racist town, could "never" be made today. "It's OK not to hurt the feelings of various tribes and groups," he said.

    According to the latest census figures, white people make up 61.3 percent of the American population. Rounding out those numbers, Hispanics (17.8 percent), blacks (13.3 percent), and Asians (5.7 percent), fill in most of the rest of our glorious melting pot. And yet… The oh-so progressive left-wing television industry, the very same television industry that spent almost every minute of Sunday’s disastrously low-watched Emmy Award Show smugly blasting away at Trump and his supporters as unrepentant racists, looks nothing like America. Not even close. In fact, the broad coalition of Trump’s “racist” supporters is much more racially diverse than the...

    Trump Derangement Syndrome at the Emmy Awards revealed that in Hollywood, as in the USSR or North Korea, it's dangerous to deviate from the party line. (A very surprised Dolly Parton, who didn't expect her Nine to Five co-stars to go all "Cultural Revolution" on her at the Emmy Awards.)I didn't watch the Emmy Awards. In fact, I haven't watched the Emmy Awards in at least 20 years.I don't watch the Emmy Awards in part because, with a very few exceptions, I don't watch television. Those exceptions are: Dancing With The Stars (I know, I know, but I do love...
