    Truth Revolt ^ | October 19, 2017 | Alex Parker
    In October 18’s episode of Star, Hollywood continues its audience-repelling strategy of using entertainment as a medium for heavy-handed, left-wing proselytizing. The Fox drama follows main character Alex’s boyfriend, Derek—a Black Lives Matter activist—as he attempts to get out of his funk about being paralyzed and get out of the house. Alex encourages him to attend a Black Lives Matter meeting, because hey, nothing gets one out of one's funk quite like racist, anti-capitalist political activism. Instead, Derek takes a trip to a convenience store in his wheelchair. While shopping, he observes two white racists harassing a Muslim female cashier...

    Megyn Kelly’s slot of the “Today” show desperately needs a ratings boost after less than a month on the air. On Thursday, Hoda Kotb, the ever-upbeat popular “Today” host from another hour appeared as a guest. They chatted. They danced. They tried to get the audience on its feet dancing, too. Critics hated the moment. “I’ve never been so embarrassed,” tweeted BuzzFeed News’s Kate Aurthur. “I feel nothing but second-hand embarrassment for Megyn Kelly,” chimed in media critic Ian Miles Cheong. Vulture called the clip “22 nearly unbearable seconds.”

  • ‘I’m Not That Guy,’ Weinstein Blubbered to Employees

    Harvey Weinstein sobbed and pleaded, “I’m not that guy. I’m not that guy,” to an assistant after the first bombshell article on the movie mogul’s sexual harassment allegations came out, according to a new report. But his employees were the ones weeping when a second huge story came out days later — containing rape accusations and audio of Weinstein admitting to groping a model — as they realized they may have unwittingly enabled the predatory producer, the New Yorker reports. “People were having a wave of retroactive memories,” an unnamed staffer tells the magazine. “Some of the stories were within...

    Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o on Thursday accused Harvey Weinstein of making a move on her – that she dodged by giving him a massage to avoid something potentially worse. Back in 2011 when the “12 Years a Slave” actress was still a student at Yale, Nyong’o said she met powerful movie producer at a movie festival and he invited her back to his home in Westport, Connecticut, to allegedly watch a film he had just produced. Fifteen minutes into the film, Weinstein – with his kids at house at the time – allegedly made his creepy move.

    Let's talk about how I can do better,” Lisa Bloom said. It was a Friday morning — the first day the attorney was back in her Woodland Hills law firm following her resignation as Harvey Weinstein’s adviser — and she'd called her staff into a meeting. She wanted to apologize. She told her colleagues she'd made a "colossal mistake" in deciding to represent the Hollywood producer against numerous claims of sexual harassment. That she was sorry for associating the firm with a case that ended up being such a nightmare.​ That she should have known better. Bloom is not often...

A Madea Halloween, the sequel to last autumn’s surprise hit, is expected to make $20 million-$25 million in a crowded weekend that includes such wide entries as Warner Bros/Skydance Media’s $120M-plus disaster film Geostorm (some say that the movie is way over that figure), Universal/Working Title’s The Snowman, Sony/Black Label Media’s forest firefighter movie Only the Brave, and PureFlix/Paramount’s faith-based title Same Kind of Different as Me.

You don’t speak English?? Ching-chong-ching-chong.'” “Then after he saw I was offended he asked me if I was going to fight with him karate in a southern accent,” she continued. “Then a...

    I use the word “courtesans” advisedly. The numerous young women whom Harvey Weinstein allegedly bedded are generally painted as unfortunate and unwilling victims of a sexual predator, but this is hardly the case. These women were over the age of consent. They were not mentally incapacitated. The man they decided to sleep with was not their a professor in their college course, nor a priest in their parish church, nor a judge before whom they appeared in court. They were free agents, and he was a man who was in a position to provide something that they earnestly desired. Mr....
