    Airport commission approves a private LAX lounge for the rich and famous A proposal to build a posh private lounge at Los Angeles International Airport for Southern California’s glitterati was approved Thursday in a move that officials hope will reduce disturbances by paparazzi, looky-loos and autograph-seekers in the busy central terminal area. The Board of Airport Commissioners voted unanimously in favor of the exclusive facility, which would cater to wealthy Hollywood celebrities, sports figures, diplomats and anyone else seeking privacy while waiting for their flights or after arriving at LAX. Airport officials say the lounge will be located in a...

    Photographer Christophe Courteau was taking images of mountain gorillas in Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park forest when the group's alpha male charged him. Courteau is a pro: he got the shot of that incoming fist before the punch hit him. The ape was reportedly "drunk" from eating bamboo stems, which ferment in the stomachs of gorillas. Basically, their bodies make their own beer. “In less than a second, he was on me, and strongly hit me like a rugby player. With the shock, I felt all his power and weight on my body," Courteau told Caters News Agency.

    An unusual example of media efficiency. There’s a huge new supply available of her e-mails as governor and an eternally huge demand among Palin-hating liberals for new dirt on her. If you’re a cash-strapped editor, why not match one to the other and let the market do your work for you? Palin derangement is like the wind, or the sun: All the media has to do is harness it to provide a limitless supply of productivity.Just think, if she runs for president, they might be able to outsource whole stories to their liberal readership instead of just document analysis.

    THE MEDIA HATES COVERING PALIN AND SHE LOVES EVERY MINUTE OF IT - Remember Katie Couric’s “gotcha” interview with Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential campaign? It’s a safe bet that more than a few of the liberal media loons (I know, that’s mostly redundant) were howling at their TV sets as they watched then-Governor Palin squirm as she attempted to answer questions that were obviously designed to trip her up. What a difference a few years makes. Sarah Palin may not have grown any more intelligent, (she’s much smarter than the loons will ever admit anyway), but she sure...

    Palin is rubbing the media mob’s sense of entitlement right back in its face. In the 1970s, The Boys on the Bus exposed how a clubby pack of male political reporters ruled the road to the White House and shaped the news. Four decades later, an outsider gal from Alaska has commandeered the 2012 media bus — and left Beltway journalism insiders eating her dust. We’ve come a long way, baby. Amid frenzied speculation over her potential presidential-campaign plans, former GOP Alaska governor Sarah Palin launched an all-American road trip with her family this Memorial Day weekend. Establishment media types...

    Of all the complaints about Sarah Palin and her bus tour, this one’s easily the strangest. CBS reports that the media has begun to grumble that Palin’s decision to keep them out of the loop on the tour’s stops have created a dangerous working environment for reporters: Since Palin and her team won’t share where the potential candidate is headed, reporters and producers have little choice but to simply stay close to Palin’s bus. This has resulted in scenes of the Palin bus tooling down the highway followed by a caravan of 10 or 15 vehicles – including a massive...

    Since Palin and her team won’t share where the potential candidate is headed, reporters and producers have little choice but to simply stay close to Palin’s bus. This has resulted in scenes of the Palin bus tooling down the highway followed by a caravan of 10 or 15 vehicles – including a massive CNN bus – all trying to make sure they don’t lose sight of the Palin bus. It adds up to a dangerous situation, says CBS News Producer Ryan Corsaro. “I just hope to God that one of these young producers with a camera whose bosses are making...

In the pictures, which were reportedly taken last year and published online by thecrushgirls.com, Farenthold is dressed in pajamas featuring a yellow ducky design. We The People News called attention to the images on Thursday with a note confirming their authenticity.

    After a 34-year military career, General Stanley McChrystal was relieved from command in Afghanistan because of reports in Rolling Stone that he and his staff made critical remarks about the administration. Islamic websites cited his removal by President Obama as proof that we are losing the war. General McChrystal was “taken out” as surely as if he had been hit by a bullet from an enemy sniper. He might even have preferred that. Opinions vary, but most describe him as a superb officer, one close to his troops. A key commander was removed at a critical time, because of remarks...

But family friends told Us Weekly that Mrs Obama is "trying to keep them grounded" and insisting on no special treatment as they begin their new lives in Washington. That means an end to hanging out with celebrities such as Beyonce, whom the girls were thrilled to meet during the campaign, according...

As an actor, Schwarzenegger had testified against two photographers convicted in a 1998 incident involving him and his wife. He also once lobbied for a buffer zone protecting celebrities. "We...

    From the man who brought us "The Passion of the Christ" comes "Paparazzi," a cheeseball revenge thriller with an alarmingly twisted moral. According to this Mel Gibson-produced late-summer offering, released without screening for critics, it's OK to murder celebrity photographers because they're amoral bottom-feeders. Forget about turning the other cheek; these unshaven, bourbon-swigging "parasites" — who, in the view of "Paparazzi," all look and behave like dirty buccaneers — apparently deserve to die. The "Death Wish" premise is almost as extreme as the acting. Squandering a chance to thoughtfully examine the repercussions of society's obsession with Hollywood lives, first-time feature...
