    "Mr Moore said: 'We've lost something of our soul here in this country, and maybe I'm an old-school American, who believes in the American justice system, something that separates us from other countries. 'We say everybody has their day in court, no matter what sort of person, no matter what piece of scum they are."
  • Was Ronald Reagan a secret snitch?

    Did Ronald Reagan secretly give the FBI names of people he suspected were communists when he was a movie star and Hollywood labor chief in the 1940s? This allegation resurfaced in the media just before Thanksgiving when the San Jose Mercury News, which published excerpts from Reagan's FBI file to great international acclaim in 1985, ran a column revisiting its original story about Reagan the snitch. It implies that Reagan was a shadowy operator in cahoots with the notorious FBI director, J. Edgar Hoover, orchestrating their next Hollywood Red scare. The answer? Maybe. But Reagan was hardly betraying friends and...

    Jane Fonda has something she'd like to work out: A television series. "I have a sort of a vision of what it could be and that's all that I'll say," Fonda said in an interview last week. "I think the best, edgiest writing is now on cable television. It's pretty exciting." While the Oscar-winner hasn't officially signed up for a TV show, she can be seen in new workout DVDs designed specifically for baby boomers. "People who are of a certain age tend to be ignored by the fitness industry and being that I'm older and I've done a lot...
  • WaPo – Sean Penn Movie “Fair Game” Full Of Lies

    During Thanksgiving weekend I went to see the movie REDS with Bruce Willis. Awesome movie and I highly recommend it. But during the trailers they showed the movie FAIR GAME with Sean Penn, supposedly based on the Plame/Wilson affair. I groaned when I saw it. It appears my groan was warranted. Here is the WaPo: (h/t Dan Riehl) In fact, "Fair Game," based on books by Mr. Wilson and his wife, is full of distortions - not to mention outright inventions. To start with the most sensational: The movie portrays Ms. Plame as having cultivated a group of Iraqi...

    While everyone is preparing to give thanks tomorrow, one of America's most famous families, the Jolie-Pitts, have decided to sit this Thanksgiving out. "Angelina Jolie hates this holiday and wants no part in rewriting history like so many other Americans," a friend of the actress tells me. "To celebrate what the white settlers did to the native Indians, the domination of one culture over another, just isn't her style. She definitely doesn't want to teach her multi-cultural family how to celebrate a story of murder." Angelina has been filming her directorial debut, about a Serbian man and Bosnian woman who...

    The American political climate for achieving change is “very, very ugly,” according to Bruce Springsteen, as he launched a staunch defence of Barack Obama. "There's a widespread political consciousness that's perhaps deeper in Europe than it is in the States,” he told the Sunday Times magazine. “The climate [in America] is very, very ugly for getting things done. The moderate reforms President Obama fought to make are called Marxist, socialist. “I mean, the most extreme language is put into play to describe the most modest reforms that would move the economy back towards serving a majority of its citizens.” The...

    1960s songbird Joan Baez had a treehouse built -- without walls -- 20 feet high in an oak tree behind her Woodside home because she wanted to sleep with birds. The folksinging legend, who once performed the civil rights anthem "We Shall Overcome" before a half-million people at Woodstock, fell from that treehouse Wednesday as she climbed down from the platform.
  • Unfair blame: Truth in flames in Hollywood's Plame 'Game' (Valerie Plame Wilson)

    The Washington Times ^ | 11/09/2010 | Staff
    When Hollywood decides a former White House aide is fair game for attack, facts don't come into play. History, however, cannot be so cavalier about the truth. The new movie "Fair Game" - based on the outing of CIA employee Valerie Plame Wilson during political battles concerning the war in Iraq - is anything but fair or honest. In depicting former vice-presidential chief of staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby as a sinister point man in a broad effort to destroy Mrs. Wilson's career while concocting a fraudulent case for the war, the movie perpetuates myths that improperly damage U.S. credibility....

    Creating Orwellian Worldview ^ | 11/11/10 | Alaphiah
    Bill Maher made his fame because he has the ability to argue nonsensical arguments while getting dolts to agree and applaud, makes another outlandish statement. Case in point Bill attempts to argue two points. First Blue Dog Democrats, who were voted in by Conservatives in Conservative districts only because Blue Dogs presented themselves as Conservatives, were voted out in the midterm elections because the Blue Dogs distanced themselves from the president. Huh? Wouldn’t distancing themselves from president Soetoro help Blue Dogs because of Conservative and Independent backlash against the Liberal president and his Liberal policies? Second Maher argues the Conservative...

    I've always liked Director Peter Weir's films. Master and Commander, Witness, Gallipoli. Even things I didn't care for like The Year Of Living Dangerously and The Dead Poets Society were still well done and stylish. Now he has this coming out in January about an escape from a Soviet gulag in 1940 (be sure to click on the link to the trailer below): Trailer here ---------------------------------------------------- Then there is this little number from Director Kevin Smith. I'll provide the synopsis from IMDB but I'll be damned if I'm going to provide a link to the trailer. From IMDB: "A horror...

    "Restore sanity and/or fear." That's the tongue-in-cheek slogan for a rally held on Saturday at the US Capitol, organized by liberal television comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Known for their satirical shows on the Comedy Central Channel, they attracted thousands of their moderate fans for a few hours of comedy and music--three days before mid-term elections Singer Yusuf Islam (C) preforms alongside Ozzy Osbourne (L) and comedians Stephen Colbert (2nd L) and Jon Stewart (R) during the "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" on the Washington Mall, October 30, 2010.

    Olivia Wilde has seen the future, and if you don't vote, it's "terrifying." The stunning "House" star gets political in a new video for MoveOn.org called "Back From the Future," aimed at increasing voter turnout by showing what will happen if Democrats don't hit the polls. It starts with a mock newscast to show just how bad things have gotten in the future. "Pamela Anderson announced today that she and MTV 'Jersey Shore' star The Situation will be getting married in early November," a news anchor reports. "We'll be devoting all our resources to this story, even taking reporters off...

    What is it with Hollywood personalities going to Venezuela and being swept off their feet by the thuggish dictator Hugo Chávez. They come back with these stories claiming he is just misconstrued by the media and that he’s really a great guy. On Oct. 7, at an appearance at the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C., CNBC “Power Lunch” co-host Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, in an appearance promoting her book “You Know I'm Right: More Prosperity, Less Government,” explained how this could happen. She told an audience that Chávez has a very charismatic, seductive personality. “I was telling – my two most interesting...

Apparently hanging children is cool:

    MSNBC, once the also-ran, now the No. 2 cable news channel, has a new tagline that embraces its progressive political identity. The tagline, “Lean Forward,” will be publicly unveiled Tuesday, at the start of a two-year advertising campaign intended to raise awareness of the channel among viewers, advertisers and distributors. The tagline “defines us and defines our competition,” said Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, his inference being that the Fox News Channel, the No. 1 cable news channel and a home for conservatives, is leaning backwards. Fox’s best-known tagline is “Fair and Balanced.” Some of the new MSNBC ads...

    Hey, in an entertainment universe where a blood-soaked psychopath can be a hero and flesh-munching zombies can be hilarious (to me, too), what’s a few exploding schoolchildren? Late last week, a British climate group released “ No Pressure,” a mini-film aimed at rounding up new recruits to its “10:10″ movement, in which people, schools, companies and other participants pledge to cut their greenhouse gas emissions 10 percent in a year. On paper, the project had everything going for it — the screenwriter of “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” music by Radiohead, on-screen talent including Gillian Anderson,...
