    Fox News analyst Howard Kurtz argues that press misjudgment has upended coverage of the White House and boosted the president's agenda in this exclusive excerpt from his new book, 'Media Madness.' On Jan. 8, 2017, days before Donald Trump was to assume the crushing burdens of the presidency, he faced a very different kind of problem: Meryl Streep. The iconic actress slammed him in her speech accepting the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes, attacking him for, among other things, having allegedly mocked a disabled New York Times reporter during the campaign. The next morning, Hope Hicks,...

    Actor and comedian Aziz Ansari has been accused of sexual assault by a woman who said she is speaking up because she resents him wearing a “Time’s Up” pin at the Golden Globes, according to a reports in Babe and TMZ. The still unnamed woman — who produced text messages between her and the 34-year-old actor — claims she went on a date with Ansari last year and ended up in his Tribeca apartment. The woman, who said she was 22 at the time, claims he kissed and fondled her before undressing her and then went in search for a...

    It is an honor to be here tonight as the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award. As surely almost everyone here well knows, DeMille’s last—and his most successful—film was The Ten Commandments. This 1956 epic is a motion picture classic and one of the most popular films of all time. In the “opening card,” the words of DeMille himself read, “Our modern world defined God as a 'religious complex' and laughed at the Ten Commandments as OLD FASHIONED. Then, through the laughter, came the shattering thunder of the World War. And now a blood drenched, bitter world – no...

    The evidence of a stunted artistic class is all around us. Late night comedians have stopped performing comedy, which requires honest surrender to the creative tension between perception and reality. It is all the snark of the court jester, seeking to please the ruling class. The Golden Globes was another example. The top news story of 2017 was that beneath the veneer of glamor that Hollywood projects was a disordered world where success and failure depended on the willingness of the artists to not question the powerful. Their response was to gather as a crowd in drab uniform, like the...

    They should hand out awards for hypocrisy, preening, and lack of self-awareness. On Golden Globes night, Hollywood preened in front of its black mirror as usual, but the degree to which it was blind to what was obvious to all observers was stranger than ever. It was like that time the pear-shaped Homer Simpson looked at his reflection and saw a torso rippling with musculature. What was the most crystalline moment of self-unawareness?

    James Franco’s Golden Globe lost some of its luster after several women went on Twitter and accused him of inappropriate behavior. Almost immediately after the actor scooped up a trophy for "The Disaster Artist" Sunday, on a night the industry spoke out against sexual harassment, Franco came under attack. Actress Violet Paley claimed the actor once sexually assaulted her and tried to lure her 17-year-old friend to his hotel room.

    Have we learned nothing? One speech at the Golden Globes — admittedly a barn-burner — and here comes the drumbeat for a billionaire celebrity with no governing experience to run for president. “I’m on the bus with Oprah,” Jimmy Kimmel said. “She’s running,” tweeted former “Hamilton” star Leslie Odom Jr. “A new day is on the way.” Even a major network endorsed her. “Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” read a tweet on NBC’s verified account (since deleted). Oprah, who until Sunday night insisted she would never run for president — “I will never run for public office,” she...

    The Golden Globes ratings were down again this year. It probably didn’t help that the Hollywood hypocrites announced they would lecture the nation on sexual abuse at the annual festivities. @BuzzFeed This is how everyone looked at Oprah during her speech at the Golden Globes Oprah Winfrey led the way when she lectured the nation and white males for the monstrous sexual abuse culture in Hollywood during her Golden Globes speech. Most all of the men accused of abusive behavior against women in the past several months are liberal elites. The ratings were down by 5%. Variety reported: The 2018...

    Natalie Portman got in a not-so-subtle jab at the lack of female representation in the Best Director category last night at the Golden Globes, and social media was quick to react. While presenting the nominees alongside filmmaker Ron Howard, Portman noted, quite pointedly, that all of the nominees were men. “Here are the all-male nominees,” she said as the names of Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Steven Spielberg (The Post), Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World) and the eventual winner Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water). She did not mention it but...

    Rose McGowan, who openly criticized the call for a red carpet black-out in the weeks leading up to the awards show, took to Twitter Sunday to reiterate her stance after Italian actress Asia Argento voiced her support for McGowan. "No one should forget that you were the first one who broke the silence," Argento tweeted at the former Charmed actress. "Anyone who tries to diminish your work is a troll and an enemy of the movement. You gave me the courage to speak out. I am on your side until I die." McGowan doubled down on her disdain for the...

    NBC deleted a tweet posted during Sunday night’s Golden Globes telecast which appeared to endorse the suggestion made by host Seth Meyers that Oprah Winfrey should be president of the U.S. “Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” NBC tweeted during the comedian’s monologue on Sunday night. […] The original tweet met with outrage from conservatives — including Donald Trump Jr. and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer — as well as members of the media who said it called into question the network’s objectivity. …

    As expected, stars of film and television blacked out the red carpet of the Golden Globes on Sunday. Women and men across the industry wore black in support of the #MeToo movement and gender equality in light of the recent wave of Hollywood sexual harassment allegations. Many on the carpet also wore pins supporting Time’s Up, an initiative recently founded by 300 prominent women in entertainment to fight harassment and abuse in the workplace. The group, led by stars like Reese Witherspoon, Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington and America Ferrera, was the one to organize the all-black carpet and took...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) - The Golden Globe Awards were held last night, and Oprah was apparently elected president. At least, that’s what NBC’s official Twitter feed appeared to indicate early in the evening. So it must be official, or something. - I didn’t watch the Golden Globes, which I know comes as a gigantic shock to all of you, but I do watch Twitter, and on that platform I see that Oprah told the assembled Hollywood phonies that “There is nothing more important than speaking your truth.” Note to President Oprah: There is no such...

    On Sunday, actors and actresses walked the red carpet at the 75th Golden Globe Awards mostly wearing black. The blackout was in conjunction with the “Time's Up” initiative aimed at combating the sexual harassment and assault within the entertainment industry. While many of the celebrities wore black, there were some who opted to wear some different colors. Blanca Blanco, for example, chose to wear a bright red gown instead of darker shades.

    Let the Blacklash Begin. The social media message was sent out and like lemmings drawn to the sea Hollywood responded.The Black Sea, filled with lemmingsThe theme for the evening was “Time’s Up” for the culture of sexual misconduct and abuse. Because every ribbon color under the sun has already been appropriated for one cause or another, solidarity was demonstrated by donning the uniform of the night: black. Normally that would be considered racist, white privilege or worse than Hitler but the elites can always make exceptions for themselves. So there was a red-carpet black out.BlackoutThe evening’s must-have accessory - an...

    Written by Jolie and Ung, First They Killed My Father is Cambodia’s official entry for this year’s Academy Awards Foreign Language Film race. Jolie, who has dual citizenship in America and Cambodia, was selected by the government to represent the Southeast Asian country — which is remarkable considering she is a Western woman. The Netflix film is about Cambodian author and human rights activist Ung’s life under the rule of the deadly Khmer Rouge, the name given to the followers of the Communist Party of Kampuchea in Cambodia. The film is the adaptation of Ung’s memoir about surviving the deadly...

    The first Golden Globes were held in 1943, and the award for Best Film went to the film "The Song of Bernadette" starring Jennifer Jones, who also won the award for Best Actress for her role as Saint Bernadette. The movie is based on the novel, which according to Ignatius Press, "tells the true story surrounding the miraculous visions of St. Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes, France in 1858. Werfel, a highly respected anti-Nazi writer from Vienna, became a Jewish refugee who barely escaped death in 1940, and wrote this moving story to fulfill a promise he made to God. While...
