  • After Last Week's Sexist Tweets, DSCC Uses Stephen King to Fundraise Against Susan Collins

    03/25/2020 1:55:43 PM PDT · by jazusamo · 7 replies ^ | March 25, 2020 | Reagan McCarthy
    For the better part of President Trump’s first term in office, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has been a target of the far-left, because, of course, she does not embrace their radical agenda line-by-line. A noted moderate in the GOP Senate caucus, Sen. Collins votes with both parties, issue by issue. Sen. Collins’ nuanced approach to governance is unfathomable to the far-left. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) sent a fundraising plea, amidst a global health pandemic, for Sen. Collins’ opponent, Sara Gideon, featuring far-left author Stephen King: Friend, I'm just so fed up with watching Susan Collins acquiesce to...

    Author Stephen King tried dunking on President Trump during his address at the White House on Friday, but it quickly backfired when his claim about the coronavirus response team was proven wrong. "Note that Trumps coronavirus team is all male, all old, and all white," King tweeted during Trump's press conference. The president was in the middle of discussing the pandemic and his declaration of a national emergency. Behind him stood several members of his coronavirus task force, including Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Administrator Seema Verma, who is neither male nor white. Just minutes after King's tweet, Dr. Deborah...

    Hachette Book Group scrapped Apropos of Nothing, which was scheduled to come out next month, after Allens estranged son, Ronan Farrow, blasted the publisher on Twitter and dozens of employees staged a walkout Thursday. He has been a vocal supporter of his sister, Dylan, who has accused Allen of molesting her as a child. The Hachette decision to drop the Woody Allen book makes me very uneasy. Its not him; I dont give a damn about Mr. Allen. Its who gets muzzled next that worries me, King tweeted Friday evening. Once you start, the next one is always easier, he...

    Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the social media giant will continue to support free expression and encrypted content on its platform in a new interview. "This is the new approach, and I think it's going to piss off a lot of people. But frankly, the old approach was pissing off a lot of people too, so let's try something different," Zuckerberg said Friday at the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit in Utah, CNN reported. "Increasingly we're getting called to censor a lot of different kinds of content that makes me really uncomfortable," Zuckerberg continued. Zuckerberg said the company's...

    If youre looking to keep up with Maine author Stephen King on Facebook, dont bother. He isnt there anymore. King tweeted Friday night that he is quitting Facebook. A search for his page on Facebook Saturday morning came up empty. King said on Twitter he is not comfortable with the flood of false information thats allowed in its political advertising. He also expressed doubts over Facebooks ability to protect users privacy. Facebook said last month that it would not ban or fact-check political ads, a position that has drawn criticism.

    Stephen King appeared to backtrack on his recent comments about "never" considering "diversity in matters of art" after criticism from a number of prominent artists, including Ava DuVernay. "The Shining" writer on Tuesday weighed in on the controversy that ensued after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominated a nearly all-white slate for acting Oscars. "For me, the diversity issue did not come up," King, who is a voting member of the Academy, wrote on Twitter of his nominations for the best picture, best adapted screenplay and best original screenplay categories. "That said, I would never consider diversity...

    Stephen King is under fire on Twitter after downplaying the role of diversity in selecting this year’s Academy Award nominees. “I would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality,” the 72-year-old tweeted on Tuesday. “It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong.” In an earlier tweet, King wrote that diversity was not even discussed in the categories he was tasked with nominating. “As a writer, I am allowed to nominate in just 3 categories: Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Screenplay,” he explained. “For me, the diversity issue—as it applies to individual actors...

    One week after “Motherless Brooklyn” disappointed the box office, Warner Bros. has yet another flop in the form of “Doctor Sleep.” The Mike Flanagan-directed horror film based on Stephen King’s “The Shining” sequel was tracking for a debut in the $25 million range, but its opening weekend came in well below that mark with a dismal $14 million total. While “Doctor Sleep’s” $50 million production is a saving grace, Deadline reports the film is expected to lose between $20 million and $30 million for Warner Bros. “Doctor Sleep” now joins “The Goldfinch,” “Gemini Man,” and “Terminator: Dark Fate” as one...

    How Stephen King Predicted Trump's Rise Decades Ago Author Stephen King predicted the rise of Trump 40 years ago but he says the reality is scarier than anything hes written. In US news, Stephen King sat down with NowThis to talk about President Trump and the eerie similarities between Donald Trump and the Stephen King Dead Zone character 'Greg Stillson.' Dead Zone is a novel King wrote in 1979, it features a a politician Greg Stillson, Donald Trump like in many ways. The Greg Stillson Trump similarities include his outlandish behavior and rise to power that is similar to...

    In an appearance Wednesday on CBS-TVs The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Maine horror novelist Stephen King was sharply critical of U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. King, who has frequently assailed Republican politicians including President Trump on Twitter, told Colbert that he wanted a senator with a little bit more of a liberal bent. She claims to have a liberal bent. But really, thats not true, King said, clenching his fist in the air. Colbert held up a photo of a King tweet from a few days earlier that read, Hey-hey, ho-ho, Susan Collins has got to go.

    No tension, no dread, no sense of peril, no suspense Pennywise, the most incompetent killer clown in movie history, returns for It: Chapter 2, which isnt very good, but at least its long. Oh, man, is this sucker long; just a few minutes shy of three hours, and you feel every minute of it. Length is not necessarily a problem, not even when it comes to It. Stephen Kings 1986 novel is close to 1200 pages and plenty engrossing. The 1990 television miniseries is over three hours (it was originally broadcast over two nights), and while its not scary, Tim...

    With Midsommar earning raves and performing well at the box office, horror has never been hotter. And if, as Justin Chang argued in the Los Angeles Times back in 2017, horror has become the defining genre of the Trump presidency, then Stephen King is its patron saint. The master of horrors many works have seen renewed interest thanks to a slew of successful adaptations, from the box office record-breaker It, to its much-hyped follow-up It: Chapter Two, and many more projects currently in the works. And while the master of horror certainly is the king of scary set-ups, he says...

    A year ago, the internet was all aflutter with news that James Wan was producing a remake of Stephen Kings The Tommyknockers (which had previously been adapted for TV). That project, obviously, never materialized. Today, however, it would appear that the 20th Century and 21st Century Masters of Horror will once again attempt a collaboration with a remake of Salems Lot (originally directed by Tobe Hooper and also produced for TV). The Wrap is also reporting that Gary Dauberman will be writing the script. The writer is one of horrors hottest properties, linked to Wan as the scribe of all...

    [PHOTO] Like the horror classic called, A Portrait Of Dorian Gray, current photos of Stephen King seem to reveal a more and more frightful person. If his hair were a little longer he could look terrifyingly like somebodys granny. Actually, he maybe looks more like a chimp. [PHOTO] A lot of the things King says, seem as dumb to me as any chimp might say; if chimps could talk. Especially when this overinflated writer of horror, neuroses, and mental illness bloviates on political topics, his utter ignorance rises like a giant sac of hot air. We see hot air balloons...

    In 1976, 16-year-old model Babi Christina Engelhardt embarked on a hidden eight-year affair with the 41year-old filmmaker that mirrors one of his most famous movies. Now, amid the #MeToo reckoning and Allens personal scandals, she looks back with mixed emotions on their relationship and its unequal dynamic. Sixteen, emerald-eyed, blond, an aspiring model with a confident streak and a painful past: Babi Christina Engelhardt had just caught Woody Allen's gaze at legendary New York City power restaurant Elaine's. It was October 1976, and when Engelhardt returned from the ladies' room, she dropped a note on his table with her phone...
