    Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has been quietly let go from her Warner Bros TV deal after producing no content. Cullors, 39, signed the deal with the media giant in 2020 to much fanfare but it ended in secret in October 2022, it emerged on Friday. The deal, unfortunately, did not result in any produced shows,' a source told the New York Post. Cullors claimed in January 2022 that she was working on a documentary about how reparations were similar to the idea of landback, where Native Americans got back their lands, and another about black social mobility. She...

    Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley shared a stage in March 1960, when Ol’ Blue Eyes invited the singer of ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ onto his show.When the rock’n’roll phenomenon, spearheaded by the likes of Elvis Presley, Bill Haley, and Chuck Berry, exploded like the musical equivalent of an atom bomb in the mid-50s, it was greeted with both alarm and suspicion by some of the music business’s established artists, Frank Sinatra among them. The Chairman Of The Board invited The King Of Rock’n’Roll to be a special guest on the last of four hour-long TV shows sponsored by watchmakers Timex and...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Hitler) is calling on the Justice Department to save the movie Batgirl. Earlier this month, in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Warren and four other Democrat lawmakers urged the Justice Department to save projects like Batgirl and CNN+. You see, this is how you win media love and Hollywood contributions. Forget how ridiculous and fascist your actions are… In fact, your willingness to look ridiculous and fascist only proves your fealty all the more, which increases media love and Hollywood contributions.

    Heritage Auctions is suddenly seeing new categories of collectibles soar in resale value. The auction world provides a unique opportunity to see just what people value these days, and exactly how much they value it—and some new categories of collectibles entering the auction fray have exploded from seemingly nowhere, like a sudden demand for VHS tapes seen by Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas. Heritage previously only peddled in coins, comics, movie posters, and sports paraphernalia, but the company has vastly expanded their offerings in recent years to reflect a new world of buyers that sees a far wider range of...

    The Hollywood Reporter and its at-large editor and veteran reporter Kim Masters are the last places one would expect to see anything even hinting that catering to LGTBQWERTY sensibilities might explain poor performance with audiences. Hollywood may be the gay-friendliest place on Earth, after all. That must be why it took almost 2,500 words in this long article on troubles at Amazon Studios before the subject of discarding the system of audience ratings was introduced. Amazon's Prime Video is the greatest rival of Netflix and spends enormous amounts of money seeking "tent pole" series that will cause people to want...

    CNN is being pilloried online after its news site posted an analysis piece singling out white social media users as guilty of “digital blackface” if they use a GIF or meme featuring an African American celebrity. John Blake, a writer for, is the author of a piece titled “What’s ‘digital blackface?’ And why is it wrong when White people use it?” According to Blake, white people who share internet memes featuring black people “may have inadvertently perpetuated one of the most insidious forms of contemporary racism.” He cited popular GIFs and memes featuring Tyra Banks from the reality TV...

    NBC went to great lengths to reassure viewers that Special Bulletin was fiction. It’s to this infamous TV movie’s credit that plenty of viewers freaked out anyway. The network gave writer Marshall Herskovitz and writer-director Edward Zwick two hours of the network’s airwaves for Special Bulletin, a fictional news broadcast chronicling a terrorist plot playing out in Charleston, S.C., on March 20, 1983. Presented as an interruption of nightly programming for the fictional but convincingly presented RBS television network, the broadcast begins without opening credits, instead presenting recognizable ads for the network’s game show and soap opera offerings, before a...

    Star Trek Discovery Is Cancelled And Fans Are Divided Star Trek Discovery is being cancelled after its fifth season, and the reaction from fans shows that its place in the franchise is uncertain. By Rhiannon Bevan Published 2 days ago After a six-year run, it's official: Paramount is pulling the plug on Star Trek Discovery. This isn't quite enough to make it the shortest-running mainline Trek series - that "honour" goes to Star Trek Enterprise - but it is a far more abrupt end than most. So unsurprisingly, fans are divided on both the show, and the decision to...

    A couple of years ago, I ran across a thread on here regarding live tv streaming. One of the sites listed was ustvgo along with some others that I can't recall because I immediately went to the ustvgo site which it was terrific. It had it all plus it was free. Since I don't have TV, I had it on my PC everyday and had access to all cable and network stations. In January it was taken down and the message left was 'sorry, we are closed'. After doing some research, it looks like some heavy weights got involved and...
  • I'm in the market for a new smart tv.

    02/23/2023 3:38:01 AM PST · by LouAvul · 106 replies
    Mine is a Sony Bravia. When it turns on, it's got programmed advertisements for the "cause-du-jour" at the top of the screen. Currently, since this is black month, there's a picture of a domestic terrorist named angela davis in the 60s, running her mouth. And it's A. Big. Mouth. I want a smart tv that doesn't have all that nonsense and propaganda on the opening screen. It's bad enough that Amazon Prime constantly pimps those liberal causes (black month; homo pride; etc), but I'd like to not have it on the opening screen.

    CNN anchor Don Lemon will be temporarily benched from the network on Monday following his controversial comments demeaning 2024 GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley, according to a CNN insider. A CNN insider told Fox News Digital that Lemon has no plans to return to air earlier than Tuesday, adding that he is "taking the holiday" Monday and that his return to the show depends on "where his head is at." Lemon's boss, CNN CEO Chris Licht, scolded the host on Friday for the comment, calling it "upsetting, unacceptable and unfair" and a "huge distraction." Following intense backlash, Lemon tweeted out...

    Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of Fox Corporation, once suggested that Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham could go on air and declare that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election. .... Snip.... On January 5, 2021, Murdoch emailed Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott: “It’s been suggested our prime time three should independently or together say something like ‘the election is over, and Joe Biden won.'” He said that such a statement “would go a long way to stop the Trump myth that the election was stolen.” Scott then forwarded Murdoch’s suggestion to Meade Cooper, the primetime...

    Roseanne Barr has a new comedy special, and true to her style, she holds nothing back. In a clip that has been shared on social media, she hits hard against cancel culture — an issue she has personal experience with. Barr faced accusations of racism over a tweet she made in 2018 about Barack Obama’s former White House advisor, Valerie Jarrett, prompting ABC to cancel the reboot of her sitcom, Roseanne. It is widely believed that ABC was looking for a reason to fire Barr because her title character in the show was a Trump supporter. After Barr was fired...

    When I was growing up cartoons were just cartoons. Those days aren't just long gone. They're long dead. As a black kid, I never saw a problem with the Saturday morning and after-school offerings. ... But Disney+'s reboot, renamed 'The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder,' is so far removed from what I grew up watching that I don't even recognize it. In fact, it's a Trojan horse of un-American, woke, propaganda. ... The series is not just political. It is downright radical; demonizing the police, denigrating white people, and perpetuating leftist narratives that you'd expect to see on MSNBC from...

    Given the fact that superhero stories have dominated our television and movie screens for almost two full decades, it can be easy to forget that there was an earlier wave of them decades ago. This '70s-era micro-boom followed in the wake of the extraordinary, absurd and fantastically entertaining Batman TV series of the '60s, and included TV shows like Shazam (CBS), Wonder Woman (ABC/CBS), The Incredible Hulk (CBS) and the Christopher Reeve-led Superman, which was the first prestige superhero film ever made. Unfortunately, one of the most lovable projects from that time is also one of the most often forgotten:...
