    "I told him then, I said, ‘She’s the devil, and she will turn on you,'" the Trump strategist reportedly said of Kelly. President Donald Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has opened up about the rift between his political website Breitbart and Fox News — and he blames Megyn Kelly. In a recent interview with Politico, Bannon said, "The big rift between Breitbart and Fox was all over Megyn Kelly. She was all over Trump nonstop.” Kelly, who has since departed Fox News despite an enormous offer from the network, made headlines when she accused then-CEO Roger Ailes of sexual harassment...

    Older fans know Babylon 5, the game-changing 1994-1998 series, but younger fans may not have had a chance to watch it. Here’s your internet-sized window of opportunity. B5 has come to streaming service Go90. According to showrunner J. Michael Straczynski’s Facebook page, “This is the first time B5 has been streamed online or available in the US for a very long time.” Go90 is offering all five seasons for free, without commercial breaks. I tested it myself, and it looks great. For those who don’t know, B5 popularized the story arc in sci-fi television. (Robotech and other anime beat B5...

    With stinging criticisms cloaked in humor, late-night hosts Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, Trevor Noah and the whole cast of “Saturday Night Live” have provided American audiences a way to laugh off their political anxiety. But on May 2, we may have to say goodbye to them for now. That’s because the day before marks the expiration date for the current contract between the Writers Guild of America, the organization representing 12,000 Hollywood film and TV writers, and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, which represents the writers’ employers. (The Huffington Post is unionized under the WGA-East.) The current...

    Bill O'Reilly briefly shook hands with Pope Francis during the Vatican's weekly Wednesday meeting with the public, the New York Times reported. O'Reilly has been vacationing in Italy for the past week, avoiding the spotlight of numerous claims of sexual harassment against the Fox anchor. He stood in line to meet the Pope in a special VIP section Wednesday morning, as a photograph from L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican's daily newspaper, shows....

    Did you know that when you're watching your favourite TV program, your TV program could be watching you as well? It's true, if you believe what a company called FlySwipe is selling. That's because, according to a press release coming from the upcoming National Association of Broadcasters convention, broadcasters and marketers now have the ability to know exactly who's watching a program thanks to advancements in artificial intelligence technology. FlySwipe says they can use facial recognition and "big data" to help the broadcasters and advertisers figure out exactly which commercial a particular viewer should be shown, based on the viewer's...

    Last week this show took a hard left going anti-gun. This week it went even further left quoting the bogus statistics on percentage of people who support Universal Background Checks. It's like this show is the fantasy of every leftist who wishes they could have won the vote they lost under obummer and thank God they did.

    One day after her network joined the rest of corporate media in cheering for President Trump’s missile attack on Syria, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was back to regular business: seeing Russian collaboration with Trump at work. It’s “impossible,” fellow anchor Lawrence O’Donnell told Maddow on April 7, to rule out that “Vladimir Putin orchestrated what happened in Syria this week – so that his friend in the White House could have a big night with missiles and all of the praise he’s picked up over the past 24 hours.” Maddow concurred, suggesting that only the FBI’s ongoing probe into Trump’s alleged...

    Now, some of the critics watching "Homeland" have — there’s a big story at NewsBusters featuring an interview with the cast. What everybody thinks has happened in Homeland is that after six years of naming Islamofascists as the bad guys, that Americans have become the bad guys. And that’s only half the story. That’s only half of what they’ve done on Homeland. This is amazing. And I’ll get to it in due course.

    “Girls” comes to an end on April 16 after six seasons, and it’s time to bid bye-bye to the best show about the worst of my generation. The HBO dramedy, created by then-24-year-old writer/actress Lena Dunham, brilliantly tackled difficult issues from abortion to sexual assault . . . while also making an entire pack of millennials look like loathsome narcissists. The cast of characters on “Girls” were remarkably, unbelievably awful. If you met a single character from the show in real life, you would be talking about how self-destructive they were . . . forever. That’s true whether it’s Jessa, who deals with her...

    In a monologue on his Monday night program, CNN host Don Lemon said the network and host will not cover the story about Susan Rice uncovering, or 'unmasking,' the names of Trump officials and confidants that were swept up in surveillance. "So let us be very clear about this," Lemon said. "There is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team surveilled or spied on -- was spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the president's original claim." "And on this program tonight, we will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet...

    Former Celebrity Apprentice host, Arnold Schwarzenegger, may have recently distanced himself from President Donald Trump, but The Donald has nothing to worry about as many members of his reality show brethren still has his back, unlike Hollywood. Who are some of the reality stars that continue to support Donald Trump? When it looked as though there was no one that would perform at Trump’s inauguration, Gold Rush‘s Todd Hoffman generously offered his singing talents, but on Facebook. Although he was eager to share his services to sing for the then-newly elected president, it was too bad that Trump, who prefers...

    Rachel Maddow’s scoop on Trump’s tax returns sparked a media frenzy and left many disappointed over the hype after her report aired on MSNBC Tuesday night. On Friday’s Real Time, Bill Maher said it all amounted to “a Help Trump Burger.” “Liberals have to be so careful these days. I’m a big fan of Rachel Maddow, I want her on the air, but you can be a fan of somebody and not like everything they do,” he told guest panelists Barney Frank, a former Massachusetts congressman, and author Andrew Sullivan. “And this week she hypes — which is okay —...

    MSNBC’s big “Trump tax return” scoop has caused friction between the cable news network and parent NBC, according to insiders. “[MSNBC] announced it on Twitter, and [NBC] found out when [the general public] did,” said a source. “[MSNBC president] Phil Griffin was trying to undermine [NBC News president] Noah Oppenheim. There was never a conversation. They overplayed their hand in a huge way.” Host Rachel Maddow teased the story on Twitter, then withheld the story till later in her program, revealing in a big ­anticlimax that Trump paid $38 million in taxes in 2005. “It’s their cable network, but it’s...

    President Trump may have pulled the most epic political trolling since, well since the last time he did something like this to a political opponent. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was set to release a big scoop about Trump’s taxes Tuesday, when the White House went and released them right before her show began. Here was the announcement of the scoop that set the political world aflutter from Rachel Maddow’s Twitter account: (TWEET-AT-LINK) She later added the clarification explaining what she had in her possession, writing, “What we’ve got is from 2005… the President’s 1040 form… details to come tonight 9PM ET,...

    Saturday Night Live made media headlines last night after their flagrant attack on First Daughter, Ivanka Trump. Scarlett Johansson starred as Ivanka, while the narrator slammed her as “complicit” in the perceived wrongdoings of her father. “She’s a woman who knows what she wants and knows what she’s doing.” The ad continued by making satirical, sarcastic remarks about Ivanka being a feminist and a champion for women before ending with Johansson running out of a gold door. The skit was in very poor taste, lacking class and humor. It reeked of liberals who resent powerful, strong women, which is an...

    Tales detailing the plight of America's disillusioned middle class and the realities of life in the rural United States are making their way to a TV near you. Sitcom writers are now grappling with how to best reflect the slice of the electorate that voted for Donald Trump, and delve into the deep cultural and political divides exposed during the 2016 presidential race, according to television and film experts. The television industry will likely start developing new shows based on this political reality later in the year or early next year, said Eric Deggans, an award-winning author and television critic...
