  • It's Back! Garofalo on Scarborough Country Tonite!

    Friday Nite 10PM EST Garofalo Alert! It's Back! Tonite on Scarborough Country MSNBC, America's favorite ex-celebrity turned unemployed social malcontent Janeane Garofalo will be making an appearance on the show. From the info provided by Scarborough, it does not appear that Ms. Garofalo will be apologizing to President Bush as promised. Isn't it ironic that despite her allegations of a vast right-wing conspiracy to silence her, she's still getting plenty of air time? She's also featured in an article in the Summer 2003 Ms. Magazine where she says: "Why should I apologize?" she said when we spent an afternoon together...

    Did liberal-bashers cost Garofalo her sitcom? June 5, 2003 BY BILL ZWECKER SUN-TIMES COLUMNIST Is the ghost of Sen. Joe McCarthy alive and well in Hollywood? That is certainly on the minds of many outspoken liberals in Tinsel-town these days. The latest conspiracy theory focuses on the just-announced axing by ABC of very vocal anti-Iraq war activist Janeane Garofalo's new sitcom, ''Slice o' Life.'' Though the alphabet network had given Garo-falo and Universal Tele-vision a thumbs up on the show for next season, network execs changed their minds, telling Daily Variety and other industry outlets it was ''the direction of...

    Scottish actor Alan Cumming caused a stir when he arrived at Monday's Council Of Fashion Designers Of America (CFDA) Awards - by using his outfit to encourage people to speak out. The X2 star arrived at the glitzy New York show in a purple suit and pink T-shirt. But it was the slogan 'Your Silence Will Not Protect You' emblazoned on his jacket which really caught everybody's eye. Cumming explains of his message, "We're all at this moment told to be quiet and not discuss stuff and let the powers that be decide everything. I think that's wrong. It's a...

    Halle Berry solidified her place as one of the world's sexiest women with her role as Bond girl Jinx in "Die Another Day." But the Oscar-winning actress (Monster's Ball) says she still doesn't see herself as a beautiful star. "To be totally honest, most of the time I think I'm ugly," she told the German magazine Journal fur die Frau. "I see myself without makeup every morning and that's why I don't have illusions anymore. I certainly don't feel like a big star." Berry added that being black still hinders her progress in Hollywood. "For many film studios and directors...

    Washington, DC, Apr 17 (OneWorld) - A major environmental group has declared a ceasefire in its three-year campaign against Citigroup, the world's largest private financial institution, after new commitments by the giant lender to adopt more responsible social and environmental policies in deciding what projects to finance. Citigroup's decision to more seriously engage one of its main critics, Rainforest Action Network (RAN), came one week after the San Francisco-based group launched a major ad campaign to persuade Citigroup credit card holders to destroy their cards to protest the company's support for projects and industries that environmentalists consider particularly harmful.

(LA Daily News) - ABC News Anchor Peter Jennings is apparently not the only celebrity to take issue with Toby Keith's chart-topping country hit, "Courtesy Of The Red, White And Blue (The Angry American)." Now, the Dixie Chicks's lead singer, Natalie Maines, freely shares her dislike of the song. "Don't get me started," Maines told the Los Angeles Daily News. "I hate it. It's ignorant, and it makes country music sound ignorant. It targets an entire culture - and not just the bad people who did bad things. You've got to have some tact. Anybody can write,...

    ABC's Peter Jennings sees an ominous new threat in the world. Not weapons of mass destruction or terrorism, but another vast right-wing conspiracy at home, specifically, the supposedly "well organized and aggressive efforts to make life very difficult for celebrities who speak out against the war." Jennings ended Tuesday's World News Tonight with this plug for Wednesday's show: "That is our report on World News Tonight. Tomorrow on the broadcast, the well organized and aggressive efforts to make life very difficult for celebrities who speak out against the war. I'm Peter Jennings.

    Actor/Director Tim Robbins hates free speech. So does his long-term partner, Susan Sarandon, as well as Janeane Garafolo, Martin Sheen, The Dixie Chicks, Mike Farrell, Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Harry Belafonte, Ed Asner, Danny Glover, Chrissie Hynde, and other ''anti-war'' celebrities. They only love free speech when they are using it to bash the military, President Bush, and America, both in our own media and overseas. However, when the American consumer, offended by their blame-America first rhetoric, reacts with petitions and boycotts, the words ''blacklist,'' ''undermining free speech'' and ''suppressing dissent'' are used by these celebrities. Hollywood is scared, because...

    It looks like outspoken Iraq war critic Janeane Garofalo won't be honoring her pledge to apologize to President Bush anytime soon. "I have nothing to apologize for," she told WABC Radio's Steve Malzberg, who requested an interview with the comedienne-turned-peacenik for his Sunday morning broadcast. Malzberg tells NewsMax that instead of agreeing to the interview request, Garofalo boasted that her upcoming TV show on ABC is going forward despite a tidal wave of complaints received by the network. "Boycotters are welcome to keep giving me tons of publicity," she dared before reiterating, "There will be no apologies." Just five weeks...
