  • DOJ rejects CNN analyst's claim in fight over White House press room access

    DOJ puts White House Correspondents' Association on notice that press room is government property and only tradition gives group power to determine access. TThe Justice Department has rejected a CNN political analyst's legal claim he deserved access to President Trump's coronavirus briefings, warning the White House press room is ultimately federal property and not the legal domain of journalists. The DOJ's letter rejecting CNN and Playboy journalist Brian Karem's demands to access the briefings appeared to serve notice to the journalist-run White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) that its power to regulate who attends White House press briefings was based only...

    Playboy magazine announced that it will be ending its print edition, due in part to the coronavirus pandemic. Playboy's CEO, Ben Kohn, said the decision to stop printing the magazine had been discussed for some time, but was expedited by the global outbreak. “As the disruption of the coronavirus pandemic to content production and the supply chain became clearer and clearer, we were forced to accelerate a conversation we’ve been having internally: the question of how to transform our US print product to better suit what consumers want today … [and] engage in a cultural conversation each and every day,...

    Many Americans think of Sunday at the day for church, but The New York Times encourages its subscribers to see Sunday in a much more sybaritic way. This seemed really obvious on August 4. Sunday Business had a big cover story titled "Can Millennials Save Playboy?" The Hefner family is no longer involved, and "gender editor" Jessica Bennett wrote "This is a newer, woke-er, more inclusive Playboy — if you believe what company executives tell you, and if you are inclined to give an aging brand yet another chance at reinvention." A new underwater cover photo is said to be...

    “This is a full nude shoot to be conducted underwater,” a woman said into a phone, her voice carrying across a row of cubicles. “Right, that’s right,” she continued. The person on the other end didn’t seem to quite get it. “As in, it won’t be on land.” It was a Tuesday morning at the Westwood headquarters of Playboy Enterprises,, and editors were preparing to close their summer issue. Gathered between a velvet love seat and a view of Santa Monica, they discussed upcoming stories — a piece on B.D.S.M., a profile of Pete Buttigieg — while in the kitchen,...

    The summer issue contains articles on BDSM and gender-neutral sex toys as well as a profile of Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg and an interview with Tarana Burke, the activist who founded the #MeToo movement. Instead of having a staff writer to speak with Burke, Playboy enlisted Dream Hampton, the filmmaker behind 'Surviving R. Kelly,' the documentary that led to multiple charges against the singer.

    Well, remember Brian Karem? He’s the White House Correspondent for Playboy. He’s also a CNN contributor. Former Special Assistant to the President and current Salem Radio Host Dr. Sebastian Gorka confronted him at a presser in the Rose Garden. He’s been called one of the biggest pigs of the press corps, known for his combative style with the press secretaries of the Trump White House. He likened Trump voters to the Nazi Party. He said that the attendees of the White House’s social media summit were willing participants of demonic possession. Gorka said that he called the president a “f**king idiot” when...

    “The water is meant to represent gender and sexual fluidity,” Mr. Singh said, seated beneath a 1988 Herb Ritts portrait of Cindy Crawford. The women who would pose in that water — their limbs wrapped around one another in a balletlike pose — were not simply models but activists. One uses performance art and digital media to share stories about the H.I.V. epidemic. Another is an underwater dancer who promotes ocean conservation. The third, a Belgian artist, recently filmed herself walking naked through a Hasidic neighborhood of Brooklyn during a sacred holiday.

    WASHINGTON -- Former Deputy Assistant to the President Dr. Sebastian Gorka and Brian Karem, White House reporter for Playboy, got into a shouting match in the Rose Garden at the White House on Thursday. Trump had tweeted that the Rose Garden event would be a press conference but he did not take questions from reporters on-site. "The White House will be hosting a very big and very important Social Media Summit today. Would I have become President without Social Media? Yes (probably)! At its conclusion, we will all go to the beautiful Rose Garden for a News Conference on the...

    This month’s 50th anniversary of Stonewall, the Greenwich Village uprising that launched the modern LGBT movement, was always going to be complicated. What may seem like a straightforward chance to celebrate progress actually masks a fault line that has divided our movement since its start: whether our goal is equality or liberation, a fight for the right to be treated like everyone else or the freedom to be authentically ourselves. Do we seek belonging in the world as it is (including the military, marriage and parenting) or the chance to transform the world, by throwing off repressive norms, into a...

    (Newser) – A New Jersey woman who allegedly used garden shears to ruin her neighbor's Playboy bunny lawn display has been charged with criminal mischief—and she's forced to look at the mannequins once more. reports dentist Wayne Gangi resurrected his lingerie-clad display outside his Clifton office over the weekend and beefed it up in the process, this time joining his five female mannequins with two male ones. Though the mannequins are wearing bunny ears, holding Easter baskets, and surrounded by eggs, he says his lawn ornaments aren't meant to celebrate Easter but the late Hugh Hefner's birthday, which was...

    Las Vegas Police say they've arrested a 25-year-old Playboy model in connection with the death of a 71-year-old doctor whose body was discovered inside the trunk of an abandoned car earlier this month. Kelsey Nichole Turner, 25, was arrested in Stockton, California on March 21 by detectives from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and members of a Stockton FBI task force, a press release from the department said. Detectives identified Turner as a suspect after an investigation revealed evidence that connected her to the death of Thomas Burchard, a 71-year-old child psychiatrist from Salinas, California. Social media accounts for...

    A former Playboy model and "Big Brother" star has died under mysterious circumstances shortly after making explosive claims linking a number of celebrities to pedophilia. Argentinian-born Natacha Jaitt’s naked body was found over the weekend following a house party in Buenos Aires. Local media report there was evidence of drug use found at the scene — but in an eerie twist, the socialite and former Playboy model seems to have predicted her own death just months earlier. In April last year, the 41-year-old took to Twitter to claim her life was at risk after receiving unspecified threats. "WARNING: I am...

    A blind man says he wants to read Playboy for the articles but can’t. On Wednesday, Donald Nixon — who is legally blind — filed a lawsuit against the legendary company’s website, claiming that it was in violation of the American with Disabilities Act, TMZ reported. Both and are allegedly not compatible with Nixon’s screen-reading software, which allows blind or visually impaired users to read the text with a speech synthesizer or braille display, according to the American Foundation for the Blind. Based on court documents obtained by TMZ, Nixon argued that visually-impaired people could not “fully and...
  • Ben Affleck: 'Big Republican' Actors Are Hard to Watch

    Democratic fundraiser/actor Ben Affleck -- and the next big-screen "Batman" -- recently gave an interview to Playboy. His own bias against Republicans, he admits, prevents him from fully enjoying a Republican actor's performance. "It's ... hard," said Affleck, "to get people to suspend disbelief." Affleck said: "When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn't like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. That (bleep) fogs the mind when you should be paying attention and be swept into the illusion." Fair enough. But how do you...

    Xanax for patient Karem—stat! Make it a double. . . Brian Karem, then a Playboy reporter, made his liberal-media bones by haranguing Sarah Huckabee Sanders in the White House press room last year. CNN rewarded Karem for his outburst my naming him an “analyst.” This morning, Karem put on the kind of performance that CNN is paying him for, waxing apocalyptic about the future of the environment and the EPA under Scott Pruitt and his successor, Andrew Wheeler. Excerpts from Karem’s wery, wery scared statement: “[Pruitt] destroyed the EPA . . . People I’ve known in the EPA for 20...

    If Scott Pruitt is scaring deep state environmentalist wackos at the EPA, he must be doing something right . . . Remember Brian Karem, the reporter who harangued Sarah Huckabee Sanders last year over her criticism of CNN? What better way to win CNN’s heart, and sure enough, there was Karem on “New Day” this morning. Karem waxed apoplectic over Scott Pruitt and what he described as the Trump administration’s agenda “to tear down protections, it’s to destroy regulations, it’s to tear down the federal government.” Added Karem: “There are people in the EPA I’ve known for years who are...
