    Harvey Weinstein is trying to edit a new kid-friendly version of "The King's Speech." He's betting that with a PG-13 rating it could win the same family audiences in the United States that are packing theaters playing it in the United Kingdom. Previously, Weinstein fought the good fight to protest the film's R rating -- the MPAA ratings board slapped it with a restricted designation simply because, for a few minutes, the King spews profanities as therapy for his stammer. Weinstein wants to work out any new version with the director, Tom Hooper. But this kind of tampering is almost...

    Music’ network’s movie award show features 100 swears in 122 minutes. "“Ready to make the censors’ ears bleed?” That’s how Anna Kendrick summed up MTV’s attitude toward decency June 6 during the network’s annual Movie Awards broadcast. It wasn’t just the censors who endured a two-hour swear-fest. The television audience had the pleasure of hearing 30 percent of the vulgarities uttered throughout the night. A Culture and Media Institute review found the 122-minute show littered with at least 100 bleep-worthy words – that’s more than one per minute not including commercials. The network’s censors caught 70 curses. They included 47...

    Sarah Palin may be known as a pit bull, but Rep. Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama’s new chief of staff, is the real pit bull whose favorite target has always been Republicans. “Let us resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long,” Obama said in his election night speech. Yet as his first personnel decision, Obama chose a man known as “Rahmbo” because of his hyper-partisan, bare-knuckle tactics that were honed in Chicago-style politics. Emanuel has called himself a “Vince Lombardi Democrat” because he believes that “Winning...

    Posted 5 :56 PM ST. LOUIS -- For many people outside of the political world Rahm Emanuel is not a household name, but that is about to change as President-elect Barack Obama has tapped him to be his White House chief of staff. “Rahm is exactly the right person at the right time for that job” said John Lapp who served as executive director under Emanuel in his role as chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, (DCCC). “What people don’t understand about him is, yes he is a great political strategist and statistician, but he is also a thoughtful...

    CNN reports that: "Rep. Rahm Emanuel, a top House Democrat, has agreed to be President-elect Obama's chief of staff, a Democratic aide said today. Emanuel, a former member of the Clinton administration, is expected to take a 'tough-minded' approach to the White House." A profile of Emanuel was published by The New York Times after he was tapped for the position. The Times lists among Emanuel's strengths "an unusual hybrid of high-level experience as a top adviser to President Bill Clinton together with proven expertise as a Congressional leader and political strategist."

    Host Don Wade played an interesting Dick Morris sound clip for Stephanopoulos and then asked for his response. That is when Stephanopoulos came right out and said "Dick is a liar." There was no equivocation, no weasel words, just a straight out "liar." Morris was recounting a time when President Clinton called him on the phone and yelled at him for the fact that a Clinton focus group had become news when the group was supposed to be a secret. Morris claimed that Clinton demanded to know who Morris had told of the group. Morris claimed that he only told...

    Incensed by what it sees as a virtual pandemic of verbal vulgarity issuing from the diverse likes of Howard Stern, Bono of U2 and Robert Novak, the United States Senate is poised to consider a bill that would sharply increase the penalty for obscenity on the air. By raising the fines that would be levied against offending broadcasters some fifteenfold, to a fee of about $500,000 per crudity broadcast, and by threatening to revoke the licenses of repeat polluters, the Senate seeks to return to the public square the gentler tenor of yesteryear, when seldom were heard any scurrilous words,...
