    (Reuters) - Netflix Inc's subscriber growth and forecast fell short of Wall Street expectations, sending shares of the normally high-flying stock crashing 14 percent on Monday. The company's total monthly customers reached 130 million worldwide, 1 million fewer than forecasts from Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S, as it added new programming including "Lost in Space" and new episodes of Marvel's "Jessica Jones" and "13 Reasons Why." "We had a strong but not stellar Q2," Netflix said in a quarterly letter to shareholders. Netflix said it had "over-forecasted" quarterly fluctuations in the pace of new customers. Before the earnings report, Netflix shares had...

    Ever since Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, the left has been in hysterics over the very real possibility that Trump will appoint an originalist judge who will, you know, actually interpret the Constitution as it was meant to be interpreted. Their biggest fear is our greatest reason to rejoice: this paves the way to overturn Roe v. Wade. So leave it to someone like Michelle Wolf, the “comedienne” who faceplanted all over the White House Correspondent’s Dinner earlier this year in an attempt to be funny, demonstrating instead her hatred for Trump and everyone who...
  • Netflix Airs Salute to Abortion - Vanity

    On Sunday, Netflix aired a “Salute to Abortion,” hosted by “comedian” Michelle Wolf, who closed the segment with a star-spangled, flag-waving, drum corps declaration: “God bless abortion!” On her weekly Netflix program, “The Break with Michelle Wolf,” Wolf used Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s announced retirement to tout abortion rights and demean pro-life Americans, with “jokes” like: “And, I know, some people call themselves ‘pro-life’- but, ‘pro-life' is a propaganda term that isn’t real, like healthy ice cream and handsome testicles.”

    You'll no longer be able to post written reviews as of July 30, and then in mid-August existing written reviews will be removed. Soon, it'll be a little harder for you to tell everyone what you thought of Marvel's The Avengers. Netflix is removing a desktop-only feature this summer that allowed users to read and write reviews of TV shows and movies on its website. But the shutdown is coming in stages. People will no longer be able to write their feedback on a show, similar to a Yelp review of a restaurant, by July 30. And in mid-August, people...

    Netflix says it has signed Barack and Michelle Obama By: By DAVID BAUDER , AP Media Writer May 21, 2018 NEW YORK (AP) — Barack and Michelle Obama are getting into the television business with Monday's announcement that they had signed a multi-year deal with Netflix. The former president and first lady have formed their own production company, Higher Ground Productions, for the material. In announcing a deal that had been rumored since March, Netflix offered no specifics on what shows they would make. Netflix said the Obamas would make "a diverse mix of content," potentially including scripted and unscripted...

    Netflix has come under fire for a movie streaming on their site that some viewers say contains a scene that is child pornography. The opening scene of the Argentinian film "Desire" depicts two young girls under the age of 10 playing around with pillows. The scene takes a sexual turn involving one of the girls. The news site PJ Media said it reported the film to the FBI and Department of Justice for child pornography... The film remains on Netflix's site and a rep for the streaming service did not return Fox News' request for comment... Angry viewers took to...

    An Argentinian movie that Netflix offers called Desire is upsetting Netflix subscribers because of what looks like illegal content. Viewers on Facebook have shared a clip of the movie and are calling it outright child porn. In the opening scene, two little girls who look to be about seven and nine are playing "horse" on pillows. The older girl begins to obviously masturbate as the younger child watches. The camera even takes this scene into a close up of the child's face in slow motion, moving up and down and panting like a porn star. The scene is graphic and...

    Jerry Seinfeld is weighing in on the fallout Roseanne Barr has received after she posted a racist tweet, leading ABC to cancel her hit sitcom, and instead, greenlight a spinoff series, titled The Conners, which won't include her. ET spoke to the 64-year-old comedian on Monday about a new season of his show,Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, coming to Netflix, and also got his candid thoughts on the controversy surrounding Barr's remarks. "I didn't see why it was necessary to fire her," Seinfeld said. "Why would you murder someone who's committing suicide?" "But I never saw someone ruin their entire...

    Netflix sacked its chief spokesman Jonathan Friedland, he revealed on Friday, after he used the N-word twice in the space of a few days during meetings with staff. The head of communications announced his departure after being upbraided for a second time for using the racial slur, which is controversial for its ubiquity in hip-hop culture and completely taboo in almost every other context. "I'm leaving Netflix after seven years. Leaders have to be beyond reproach in the example we set and unfortunately I fell short of that standard when I was insensitive in speaking to my team about words...

    A political action committee backing former state Sen. Michael Johnston of Denver for the Democratic nod for governor has received another $1 million dollars from Michael Bloomberg, bringing the wealthy former New York mayor’s total donations to the committee to $2 million. ... The $1 million contribution was the largest that any campaign committee received in the most recent reporting period from May 31 to June 13, according to the secretary of state’s office’s TRACER campaign finance system. Second on the list: another $750,000 from fellow Democrat U.S. Rep. Jared Polis of Boulder to his gubernatorial campaign, bringing his total...

    What a feat — two canceled Fox shows this year made the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter, and now both have found new homes. Netflix has made a deal for comic book drama Lucifer, which will become a Netflix original starting with its upcoming fourth season. The Tom Ellis–starring Lucifer joins cult canceled comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which landed at NBC after the Fox cancellation. Netflix’s pickup decision comes just as the options on the Lucifer cast were about to expire at the end of day today. It follows a big #SaveLucifer campaign that has stayed in the social media...

    This is completely ridiculous and could end up hurting more than it helps. Netflix has reportedly banned workers from looking at each other for more than five seconds as part of its new anti-harassment rules. The new policy also bans the company’s film crews from asking their colleagues for their phone numbers, according to an article in the Sun. “Senior staff went to a harassment meeting to learn what is and isn’t appropriate,” an on-set runner told the Sun. “Looking at anyone longer than five seconds is considered creepy.”

    AT&T announced that it was buying Time Warner for $85.4 billion in October 2016. The Justice Department sued last year to block the merger, citing concerns that AT&T, owner of satellite television provider DirecTV, could charge rival distributors more for Time Warner content, resulting in higher prices for consumers. The outcome of the trial could have implications for future deals in the telecom and media industries, as well as vertical mergers, where companies combine with their suppliers. A federal judge said Tuesday that AT&T's $85.4 billion purchase of Time Warner is legal, clearing the path for a deal that gives...

    [FULL TITLE] Netflix Approval Plummets Among Republicans Amid Obama Production Deal, Susan Rice Board Appointment Republican’s approval of the internet streaming giant Netflix has dropped amid the company’s recent embrace of Susan Rice and Barack Obama, according to polling data obtained by Variety. A survey by the research firm YouGov found that Netflix’s positive impression rating with Republicans fell by 16 percent since the beginning of 2018. Meanwhile, the company’s positive impression rating with Democrats has risen by 15 percent in the same period. While Netflix maintains strong overall approval ratings from the American public, data shows that on a...
  • Vanity - Barack Hussein Obama, his wife and Netflix has little glimmer and shine.

    06/04/2018 6:49:49 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 32 replies
    Netflix, The power player TV supplier, etc. has badly wounded the "Netflix, Goose that lays the Golden Egg". Clearly committing a dumb business move by hiring Barack Hussein Obama & his wife Michelle to perform film production for the Netflix brand. Hiring a failed, flawed, criminal, POTUS, with no positive legacy whatsoever, is not the sharpest choice in the least. Netflix, in time, will come to suffer the selection they have made. The blow back is in progress right now from their customers, enmasse. In the movie "The Running Man" "Arnie" fights for his life and friends lives against the...

    Michelle Wolf doesn’t think ABC was brave to revive the conservative-leaning Roseanne, nor does she think the Disney-owned network deserves credit for cancelling its biggest hit. On Sunday’s episode of her Netflix variety/sketch show The Break, Wolf weighed in on Roseanne Barr’s bigoted tweet about former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, saying, “It’s not a joke. It’s barely a tweet,” and “her excuse for tweeting it was [also] bad. You’ve gotta get better at one of those, Roseanne,” Wolf added. The comedienne then showed a picture from Barr’s most controversial photoshoot: a 2009 spread for the satirical Jewish magazine Heeb, in...

    Hollywood’s left-leaning politics has made the industry a bête noire among conservatives for decades. But Netflix has made some recent moves that have especially rankled Republicans. In March, the streamer named Susan Rice — former national security adviser to President Obama, and a conservative target in the Bengazi scandal — to its board of directors. Last month, Netflix officially announced an exclusive multiyear deal with the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions for original programming. And last week, it premiered “The Break with Michelle Wolf” — a late-night-style show from the comedian who delivered a blistering takedown of the Trump administration and...

    So now here is a summary of the Netflix-Obama relationship: Netflix CEO raises large amounts of money for Obama in 2012 campaign; Netflix lobbies and gets net neutrality; and then, around 16 months after Obama leaves office, the Obamas get a contract worth $50 million even though they have no experience providing content. Since Obama, Netflix, and others are so interested in equality, I am sure they will be glad to list all other similar contracts to the Obama's with other men, women, blacks, Hispanics, LGBTQ members, and others. They should highlight the contracts with other people with no experience....
