  • Vanity Fair Asks if Hollywood Is ‘Too Soft’ on Conservative Women

    Conservative women are untouchable, according to the very media that condemn them.  On July 23, a Vanity Fair headline asked, “Is Hollywood Too Soft on Conservative Women?” TV critic Sonia Saraiya answered with a resounding “yes” as she explored Phyllis Schlafly in "Mrs. America," Megyn Kelly in "Bombshell," and Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady." Conservative women also bypass the media’s scrutiny, she insisted. Except, of course, by Saraiya herself, who suggested that they belonged to a group of “white nationalist racist gender traitors.”Saraiya’s first mistake came when she assumed that “conservative” women, who adhere to a political ideology, are...
  • ‘Chalk-Full’ Of People ‘Actually Wearing Blackface’: Megyn Kelly Blasts NBC Double Standard

    Former Fox News and NBC News anchor Megyn Kelly slammed NBC on Thursday for removing several episodes of shows featuring actors in blackface but firing her in 2018 for defending blackface makeup for Halloween. The story: Taking a hit at former NBC chairman Andy Lack, Kelly wrote, “So it turns out that when Andy Lack said ‘there is no place on our air’ for my discussion of blackface, it was b/c NBC was already chalk-full of shows and major stars actually wearing blackface…on the air…at NBC.” Her tweet comes after Variety reported about several “30 Rock” episodes where actors wore...

    Every year, Tom Toles’s Halloween party draws an eclectic mix — journalists and political types from Washington’s power elite, but also artists and musicians, everyone from retirees to college kids, jammed into small rooms and sprawled across the backyard, dancing and gossiping, checking out the crowd to see who has the most inventive and outrageous costumes. At the 2018 party at the home of The Washington Post’s editorial cartoonist, in addition to several Ruth Bader Ginsburgs, someone dressed as the “Mueller Witch Hunt” and Post columnist Dana Milbank came as just-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, complete with a...

    A stupid costume choice at a Halloween party two years ago is front-page news in the newspaper of record in the capital city of the Empire? What on earth? ... I read it first with bemusement at the moral panic, and then finally, with horror over what we are doing to ourselves.... Honestly, what kind of white idiot shows up in blackface these days? Granted, this was 2018, but blackface was extremely taboo then. That’s what Schafer’s joke was about: how Megyn Kelly got herself in a world of trouble by suggesting that blackface was not that big a deal....

    Twitter users are calling for Jimmy Fallon to be 'cancelled' after a Chris Rock impression he did in 2000 resurfaced showing him wearing dark makeup. It's the second time the clip has emerged in recent years and has reignited the debate on blackface and cancel culture. Most recently it surfaced when Megyn Kelly was let go from The Today Show in 2018 after she defended blackface Halloween costumes.

    State officials are investigating allegations of sexual misconduct and related cover-ups at NBC News -- and have interviewed potential witnesses including Megyn Kelly, The Post has learned... Former NBC staffer Brooke Nevils, who claims that Lauer raped her in 2014, is also among those who’ve been interviewed, as is Addie Zinone, who’s said she had an affair with Lauer when she was a "Today" show production assistant in 2000, sources said. Kelly -- who left NBC News with her $30 million contract intact following a "blackface" row in 2017 -- sat down with investigators in January, according to a source...

    YouTube ^ | 5/8/20 | Megyn Kelly on YouTube
    I had not seen the FULL interview posted anywhere (only bits & pieces), so here it is, from YouTube. The interview has a lot of new details of harassment in Biden's office and discusses other people who knew (uses first names only). I find Ms. Reade totally believable. She makes eye contact and addresses every question. Looks like the reason we did not hear more from her earlier is because she had a child, had a bad marriage with domestic violence she ended with a restraining order and a change of identity, then went to law school and became a...

    Joe Biden sex-assault accuser Tara Reade said she used to be a die-hard Barack Obama supporter — but she has left the Democratic Party after the blowback to her claims against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Reade, who has accused Biden of sexually assaulting her in his Senate office in 1993, said she voted for Obama for president in 2008 and 2012 — but now feels she has no party to turn to. “I’m leaving the Democratic Party and I won’t be part of any,” Reade said during an interview with Megyn Kelly published in its entirety Friday. “I won’t...

    As Joe Biden pinned Tara Reade up against a wall, he told her “l want to ---- you,” the former staffer says in a new interview with Megyn Kelly — giving her most graphic, detailed account yet of their 1993 encounter. Tasked with bringing Biden’s gym bag to him in his Senate office, Reade, who was then a junior staffer, rushed there in her high heels, and was greeted by the senator by name. What happened next “happened very quickly,” Reade said in the interview, which will be posted in its entirety to Kelly’s Twitter account on Friday — and...

    The New York attorney general’s office late last year launched an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment, retaliation and gender discrimination at NBC News, Variety has learned. NBC News chief Andrew Lack and former “Hardball” host Chris Matthews were among multiple high-ranking executives and newsroom talents whose behavior was the subject of questioning, according to multiple sources. Among those who cooperated with the investigation by providing testimony was Megyn Kelly, an individual close to the former “Today” host told Variety. Kelly declined to comment. News of the investigation followed the surprise announcement Monday that Lack would depart the company months...

    The New York Attorney General's office is looking into NBC News over reported claims of sexual harassment there, investigative journalist Rich McHugh revealed to Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Monday night. Host Tucker Carson began the interview by asking McHugh if he had heard that the New York AG has been "investigating" NBC News over "sexual abuse, sexual harassment claims." "Well, that's kind of amazing," Carlson reacted. "So, just to be completely clear... the New York Attorney General's office is looking into NBC News. Remarkable." It was announced earlier Monday that NBC News chairman Andy Lack will leave the...

    Hollywood loves taking apart conservatives. So when presented with the idea of men in the highest reaches of the conservative media sexually harassing women at the office, it was manna from heaven. You'll not find a TV dramatization of Harvey Weinstein's predations ripped from the headlines. There's no movie on the alleged sexual misconduct by Matt Lauer at his hellish NBC offices, or Charlie Rose's at CBS. There is only "Bombshell," a fictionalized account of the hostile, sexist atmosphere at Fox News. The filmmaker on this one is Jay Roach, who has made a series of comically leftist movies for...

    SPOILER ALERT: I saw “Bombshell” this morning at 9:00am at the Hoffman 22 in Alexandria, Virginia. No more than 20 people in the theater. “Star Wars” was being shown in six of its theatres, so you could hear laser beams sound and the Star Wars theme every five minutes or so, which was annoying. I had a tub of popcorn and soda at 8:30am. No wonder I can't lose any friggin' weight! Let me start by saying that Charlize Theron was amazing as Megyn Kelly and John Lithgow was also excellent as Roger Ailes. Nicole Kidman was ‘ok’ as Gretchen...

    Megyn Kelly, who abruptly left Fox News Channel for NBC in January 2017, is heading back to that network for the first time since. FNC host Tucker Carlson said today that she will appear on his program for an interview on Wednesday. It also will mark Kelly’s first TV interview since she and NBC parted ways a year ago amid the furor over her remarks about blackface and Halloween. She had anchored Megyn Kelly Today, the 9 a.m. hour of the Peacock’s flagship morning show, since September 2017.
