  • Should Lena Dunham Adapt Hillary Clinton's Memoir?

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | September 29, 2017 | Sam Reed and Chris Gardner
    "Call HBO, we'll have to see if Danny Strong is available," jokes Dunham's producing partner Jenni Konner when asked if the memoir — high on both her and Dunham's reading list — would make a good adaptation. Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s Lenny Letter celebrated its two-year anniversary earlier this month, a span which has featured stories from Jennifer Lawrence, Gloria Steinem, America Ferrera and model Ashley Graham. But the duo is focused now on digesting the story of one Hillary Clinton in her new book What Happened. Dunham has to get her surroundings set first. “We will for sure...

    Tea Party leader and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin offered her congratulations to Judge Roy Moore Tuesday after news of his landslide victory in the Alabama GOP special primary election for U.S. Senate broke. Palin, who had endorsed Moore in his populist-nationalist struggle against the establishment pick Luther Strange, took to Facebook to give her take on the landmark campaign with national implications for the future of the Republican Party. “We can win this war!” Palin wrote. “This is what we need, the happy warriors who are in it for the right reason. They’re in it for a...

    HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Alabama Republicans have a choice between a Trump-like outsider and a Trump-backed insider Tuesday in a closely watched Senate GOP runoff that has the potential to wreak havoc on the Senate Republicans’ narrow majority. In a fitting conclusion to a sometimes nasty battle, supporters of GOP establishment-backed interim Sen. Luther Strange, R-Ala., are expected to rally on the eve of the election with Vice President Mike Pence. On the other side of the state, backers of insurgent candidate Roy Moore will stump with Trump’s former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, and controversial "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson. Trump...

    “Getting the job of the temporary Senate seat, being handed the job by the politician who’s now gone because corruption, whatever,” Palin said, trailing off. “I don’t know what you guys call it, but up in Alaska we call it quid pro quo, which I think is an old Eskimo term for that which fertilizes the swamp.”

    From the Washington Post: Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican backed by the Tea Party movement, suggested that the president was misled by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, whom the crowd repeatedly booed. Jan Morgan, a spokeswoman for the Citizens for Trump grass-roots group, said “the president was ill-advised when he made his decision.” And former Alaska governor Sarah Palin accused the swamp — which is what Trump likes to call the Washington establishment — of trying to overpower the president. “The forgotten man and woman in this country, they stood up, and we beat the swamp. But,...

    As expected by the bien-pensants of the mainstream media, a New York federal district judge dismissed Sarah Palin's libel suit against the New York Times. The decision reached what is, for the Progressive media, a politically correct result, which is that a scruffy conservative like Palin cannot be allowed to sue the New York Times.

    Law Newz ^ | 8-29-2017 | Robert Barnes
    Two reasons Palin may win on appeal. First, the Judge appears to contradict himself on a critical issue of law. Second, the Judge appears to engage in weighing the evidence, rather than interpreting the evidence in every means favorable to Palin, often denying her the benefit of the doubt while repeatedly extending it to The New York Times, the behemoth newspaper who could do a lot more damage to a judge’s reputation than public figure Palin. (Fair, or unfair, more than a few counsel believe the New York Times enjoys an unfair advantage in its backyard because of its power...

    A federal judge dismissed Sarah Palin’s defamation lawsuit against The New York Times on Tuesday, according to multiple media reports. Palin sued The Times for defamation after an editorial in the newspaper on mass shootings tied an ad run by the former vice presidential nominee to the 2011 shooting of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-Az.).

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has endorsed Roy Moore in the Alabama U.S. Senate race over establishment-backed Luther Strange, an endorsement Palin and Moore’s campaign provided to Breitbart News ahead of its public release. Palin’s endorsement of Moore—the former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court—ahead of the Sept. 26 runoff is a huge momentum booster for the conservative candidate as he extends his commanding lead in the polls over Strange.

    As detailed extensively in prior posts, Sarah Palin has sued the NY Times for defamation based on an Editorial regarding the 2011 shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. Recent developments have revealed that James Bennet, Editorial Page Editor, was the primary author of the Editorial, working off a draft prepared by a news staffer.

    Editorial page editor James Bennet testified on Wednesday as the judge weighs the newspaper's motion to dismiss. New York Times editorial page editor James Bennet testified Wednesday in an open hearing that he did not mean to imply a "causal link" between a political action committee tied to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and a 2011 attack on a then-congresswoman and others. Palin, who served as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential election, sued the Times on June 27 over a June 14 editorial that, before it was corrected, said that "the link to political incitement was clear"...

    Video at link. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) criticized a CBS News report revealing Iceland's practice of aborting babies suspected to have Down Syndrome. Palin, whose son Trig was born with Down Syndrome in 2008, said the practice is abhorrent. "To try to snuff out a life, in the name of building a perfect race... hearkens back to Nazi Germany," she said.

    The headline in the New York Times read: New York Times Editorial Writer Must Testify in Sarah Palin Lawsuit What did I tell you? "She has a case and she and her lawyers can have a field day in discovery and deposition." I'm not alone is recognizing how devastating her lawsuit is. She has good lawyers (the team that destroyed Gawker Media), a good case, and all the time in the world. Lawyer John Hinderacker at Power Line is boasting about his prescience in the case. He knows the law. I know editorial writing. Did it for 27 years. The...

    I was channel surfing through the cable news world the other day and I discovered the perfectly-coiffed-hair crowd is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The anchors and anchorettes on CNN and MSNBC are suffering outright panic attacks – after President Trump delivered that verbal gut punch to the North Koreans. MSNBC's Brian Williams defended the fear mongering - explaining to the nation that journalists had some sort of moral obligation to put the fear of God in the Heartland. "Our job tonight is to actually scare people to death," he said on national television. One of the...

    Let’s just step back and admire this situation for a moment. One or more editorial writers at the NY Times, the folks who speak with the paper’s voice of authority on every subject you can imagine, will plead with a judge to believe they did not know the basic facts of a story they were writing about, including facts reported in their own paper! The Times’ defense is: We so dumb. I find this indescribably delicious, especially given that it was Paul Krugman who used his perch at the NY Times to lead this false charge against Palin back in...

    A Manhattan federal court judge will decide by the end of this month whether to dismiss a defamation lawsuit Sarah Palin filed against the New York Times for accusing the former Alaska governor of inciting gun violence. In the meantime, Judge Jed Rakoff suspended discovery, blocking Palin’s lawyers from grilling two dozen Times reporters to prove the Gray Lady is biased against her. On June 14, the Times published a since-corrected editorial tying one of Palin’s political-action committee ads to a 2011 mass shooting that severely wounded Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords and killed six people.

    A "progressive parent" friend of mine was recently expressing enthusiasm over the fact that his children had taken to reading Young Adult dystopian novels. They were dying to see the new feature film adaptation of the book The Giver (see Sarah Palin's review, here), after having ploughed through the quartet of bestselling books by Lois Lowry. They had absorbed the blockbuster film adaptations of Divergent and The Hunger Games and had hungrily consumed the associated merchandise . They'd also made hundreds of new friends from all over the world who "shared" the same passion for dystopian teen icons Katniss, Tris...
