    How can Judd Apatow, once ranked the smartest guy in Hollywood be so . . . ? On today's With All Due Respect, big comedy macher [credits include Lena Dunham's Girls] Apatow said it was "ridiculous that anyone thinks that rich people care about other people. When the Koch brothers give a billion dollars, it is not out of a great concern for the masses." To his credit, Mark Halperin twice pressed Apatow as to whether his notion that rich donors don't care about other people also applies to rich Hollywood liberals. Apatow eventually asserted that there's a difference: "Hollywood...

    Dr. Oz showed this on his program recently. It's what the heart of a Democrat looks like after years of lies, corruption and treachery. Don't let it happen to you. If you ever thought there was any reality behind the stale script of Democrats being the 'party of the disadvantaged' and, as a topping to the sundae - the party that disdains greed and materialism, I hate to be the one to break it to you. It's pure fiction and pretty much always has been. I've written on this subject before, and as we go forward in examining the...

    Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood.

    Actress and left-wing activist Susan Sarandon has claimed she was recently denied security clearance for a visit to the White House - and that the government has been tapping her phone. The Oscar winner, who has vehemently condemned the war in Iraq, made the claims on Sunday during a Q&A session at the Tribeca Film Festival - an 11-day event in New York's Lower Manhattan. One audience member asked whether Sarandon, who was answering questions alongside documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, believed she was under surveillance by the government. 'We know we're under surveillance,' Sarandon said: 'I’ve had my phone tapped.'...

    There may be an overtly political reason that moviegoers will be seeing the story of the Osama bin Laden raid just before they vote for president. Sony Pictures, the company distributing next year's film, hosted a fundraiser for Barack Obama on their studio's premises in California last April. So far, Sony is the only major studio to hold a political fundraiser this cycle. According to Deadline Hollywood, Sony will release the bin Laden movie, directed by Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, on October 12, 2012--less than a month before the presidential election.

    Hollywood matters. It matters because we watch Hollywood product day in and day out. Your children spend six or seven hours at school, and couple of hours with their friends, and a couple of hours with you. They spend a full three hours with the television. You get home from work, kick off your shoes, and plop down in front of the TV, hoping simply to chill out. Instead, you get unmitigated liberalism pouring out of your TV. But you continue to watch because it’s great. It’s fun, thrilling, dramatic, or hilarious. We think it has no impact on us....

Davis says he "went to war and never lost a man" and "doesn't have a duplicitous bone in his body." In a flashback to the previous campaign -- with some unintentionally hilarious dialogue meant...

    “Never make judgments.” That’s what scientist Alfred Kinsey tells his research assistant very early in the new film about his life. Kinsey, as you know, was all about nonjudgmentalism. Throughout his career researching the sexual habits of Americans, his goal was to free society from the constraints of what the movie calls “morality disguised as fact.” And like its subject, the film attempts to be nonjudgmental—or, at least, that’s the ploy. Three scenes exemplify the supposed nonjudgmentalism. In the first, Kinsey tells his wife, nicknamed “Mac,” that he’s had sex with one of his male researchers. Though she’s devastated, he...

Liam Neeson in "Kinsey" (Courtesy Fox Searchlight) On the latter point, the star of "Kinsey: Let's Talk about Sex" agrees.

In the missive posted on the Drudge Report Web site, the thin-skinned thespian, whose left-leaning puppet persona gets horribly (but hilariously) mutilated in "TA," writes that the pair is "encouraging irresponsibility that will ultimately lead to the disembowelment, mutilation, exploitation and death of innocent people throughout the world."

    Once upon a time, there were people in Hollywood who loved America. And when America came under attack from enemies abroad, these actors, producers, screenwriters and directors put aside their partisan differences and created movies that -- unlike Michael Moore's new schlockumentary, "Fahrenheit 9/11" -- made all moviegoers proud to be Americans. During World War II, Tinseltown roused the country's fighting spirit instead of trying to stifle it. In February 1941, the entertainment industry convened an extraordinary Academy Awards ceremony. The president of the Motion Picture Association, independent movie mogul and World War I pilot and intelligence officer Walter Wanger, went...

The event, held at Manhattan's Intrepid's Sea-Air-Space Museum Thursday night, featured a vulgarity laced performance by techno-rocker Moby, who invited Kerry onstage for a sing-along tribute to punk rock godfather Lou Reed. As the duo perfomed Reed's classic "Walk on the Wild Side," Kerry "froze," according to the New York Daily News, when Moby reached one particularly obscene portion of the song. Then, after the song ended, Moby denounced Bush to the crowd of Kerry-backers as "an evil f---," the...

Meredith Vieira explained: “In your last book you said liberals have been wrong about everything in last half century. You ticked us off over that one, alright. And now in this new bok you say that liberals hate freedom...I want to talk about your politics because in Treason you say, yes, that liberals hate America." Ann Coulter: "Right." Vieira: "Well, it's stupid. What do you mean liberals...

    I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out how to "get" you to talk to (beg ital) me instead of all those others. You're now "the get," you know, as in The Interview to get. So what can I offer? I know you've gotten enough gifts and money to, well, add a second story, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a utility room, family room and a new porch with wheelchair access to your parents' house. Cool. I also read that your house is being wired for Internet access, that you've been offered a free Hawaii vacation and that the...

    Filmmaker Oliver Stone, whose crazed view of American history is of one evil conspiracy after another, calls him "one of the Earth's wisest people." Bigfoot movie director Steven Spielberg says breathlessly that the time he spent with the man was "the eight most important hours of my life." He's "a genius," spouted actor Jack Nicholson. And Kevin Costner described meeting him as "the experience of a lifetime." Who is this paragon of the species? The lovely Fidel Castro. No one should expect astute, even sensible, opinions from the majority of those whose celebrity is based on a make-believe vocation centered...

    Wednesday, April 23, 2003Hollywood Appeasers Cash In on Anti-U.S. RantsDon't believe the whining of Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon and other Tinseltown leftists who claim they're paying a price for opposing Operation Iraqi Freedom. They're getting rich from their anti-U.S. activism, according to the liberal Washington Post. Consider this boast from Janeane Garofalo, who still refuses to make the apology she so publicly promised after Iraqi citizens welcomed their U.S.-led liberators. "I knew when I started speaking out that it was going to be unpleasant, and I’ve taken my punches. But the positives have far outweighed the negatives,” she...

    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...
  • Tim Robbins Honored by UCLA

    Actor Tim Robbins has been given some good news after weeks of being attacked for waving peace signs at the Oscars - he's to be honored by UCLA. Robbins and partner Susan Sarandon were blasted by right-wingers for their anti-war stance at the Academy Awards last month - leading to an honor at the Baseball Hall of Fame to be scrapped earlier this month. But now UCLA scholars have stepped up to recognize former student Robbins and bestow the Alumnus of the Year Award on him. UCLA theatre professor Gary Gardner says, "Tim reflects who we are and what we...

    2002-08-08) NASHVILLE, Tenn. (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,...

Then we watch our young GIs and our chest swells with pride.They were freeing an oppressed people while naked women, transvestites, dogs, dancers and singers joined Harry Belafonte in an antiwar protest to "praise the patriotism of the demonstrators" and condemn the military action in Iraq."We denounce governments that act with tyranny," Mr. Belafonte told the crowd. He was talking about our government, not Saddam Hussein's. Listen, there were always war protesters.I was a...

    This year's Oscars telecast was the lowest-rated ever. Coming in the midst of our troops fighting valiantly abroad, that's understandable. It's a good thing for Hollywood, too, because it's beginning to look like the voters of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are slowly losing their minds. The Academy's Web site boasts that the Oscar voters are "the ablest artists and craftsmen in the motion picture world," so "the Oscar represents the best achievements of the year in the opinion of those who themselves reside at the top of their craft." But some of these "artists" can't artistically...
