  • ‘BOMBSHELL’ SHREDS AILES, TRUMP AND STORYTELLING 101

    Hollywood in Toto ^ | 13 Dec 2019 | Christian Toto
    It takes a full hour for “Bombshell” to resemble an actual movie. Until that point, it’s a screeching op-ed against all things Fox News, real and imagined. The “real” part is the sexual harassment Fox News founder Roger Ailes inflicted on female employees. The imagined? Well, that’s a laundry list of far-left talking points against the network, conservatives and a certain Commander in Chief. Once the film clears its throat, and that literally takes 60 minutes, “Bombshell” morphs into a competent, often compelling tale of a harasser’s insidious web.
  • There's Only One Hero in the Harvey Weinstein Saga: Ronan Farrow

    Weekly Standard ^ | 10/12/17 | Lee Smith
    On Tuesday the New Yorker published Ronan Farrow’s expose of Harvey Weinstein, describing in detail the famous Hollywood producer’s long history of sexual abuse and assaults of actresses and other women in the movie industry. Coming on the heels of a New York Times article published last Thursday about Weinstein, the Farrow article seems to clinch the case against a major figure in the world of entertainment, media, and politics. The question is why, after years of protecting Weinstein, did the American press publish two pieces about him in less than a week? Was it because after stories detailing the...

    The Justice Department begged a federal judge to not tell Fox News reporter James Rosen that it was tracking his telephone calls and emails in a probe regarding a national security leak. U.S. Attorney Ron Machen argued in 2010 that the traditional 30-day notice period did not apply to Rosen as Justice secretly monitored his Gmail account, according to new exhibits unsealed this week and disclosed by The Hill. “Where, as here, the government seeks such contents through a search warrant, no notice to the subscriber or customer of the e-mail account is statutorily required or necessary,” Machen wrote in...

    The Only #MeToo Stories Hollywood Will Tell Are About Republicans They’re not exposés, they’re cover-ups. Mon Oct 14, 2019 Daniel Greenfield 19 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. Over 80 women accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of everything from harassment to rape. The drama of the case made the #MeToo movement go global. And you might think that there would be a movie in that. But years later, the closest we’ve come are rumors that Brad Pitt, who has his own history...
  • Fox News’s on air war cools off – for now: It looks like Shepard Smith may be the loser

    American Thinker ^ | 09/28/2019 | Peter Barry Chowka
    The incendiary on air war that broke out earlier this week, pitting several of the most prominent Fox News channel personalities against each other, has cooled off for the moment. The sudden flare-up of simmering grudges between Fox News’s opinion and news sides that finally boiled over into public view involved opinion host Tucker Carlson, news host Shepard Smith, and the channel’s senior legal analyst Andrew Napolitano. The war of harsh words that went back and forth on Carlson’s and Smith’s programs Tuesday and Wednesday, which also involved Carlson’s guest, Republican attorney Joseph diGenova, was unprecedented and was immediately seized...

    Were you able to sit through all seven episodes of Showtime's "The Loudest Voice" about Roger Ailes without falling asleep? Well, good news! This December a movie will be released on the exact same subject called "Bombshell." Not only will it cover the same ground again, but we can be pretty sure that it will repeat the slam on Fox News for daring to not fall in line with the strictly liberal agenda that has been tightly embraced by much of the rest of the media.  One bit of good news is that you don't have to wait for its release date...

    Very quietly this morning, Lionsgate dropped the trailer and revealed the title for their Jay Roach-directed, Charles Randolph scripted movie about the women who take on Fox News Channel boss Roger Ailes: Bombshell. While we don’t get a glance at John Lithgow’s Roger Ailes in the current trailer, we see Margot Robbie’s Kayla Pospisil (a fictitious news producer) getting on the elevator with Charlize Theron’s Megyn Kelly and Nicole Kidman’s Gretchen Carlson as they head to the second floor — the executive suite at Fox News Channel’s 1211 Ave. of the Americas. Everyone is just calm and cool here. Earlier...

    How "brave" of Showtime to produce a series based on the man whose Fox News beat the company that owns them consistently in the ratings, CBS. The series in question is the Showtime version of Roger Ailes as portrayed by Russell Crowe.  Showtime, obviously proud of their character assassination portrayal of Ailes in The Loudest Voice, put up a billboard plugging the series on Sunset Boulevard. Can you guess what happened next? If you guessed hilarious sabotage yet again by Los Angeles street artists you would be right. The Hollywood Reporter wrote up the details in "Showtime's Roger Ailes Show Billboard...
  • Peter Thiel Planning Launch Of Conservative News Outlet With Mercers Family After Bannon Fiasco

    Billionaire investor Peter Thiel is reportedly considering launching a conservative news outlet backed by the powerful Mercer family, along with a “cast of Fox News celebrities,” according to Michael Wolff book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” and a report from BuzzFeed news. According to Wolff, Fox News chairman Roger Ailes and Peter Thiel were set to discuss the idea of a conservative news outlet last May – however Ailes slipped and fell two days before the meeting, hitting his head and dying before the discussion could occur. Word of Thiel’s potential new venture with the Mercers is...

    Say, maybe President Trump’s powers are even greater than anyone imagined . . . On this evening’s Hardball, Chris Matthews asked Yamiche Alcindor, a New York Times reporter, who Trump actually listens to. She responded: “Who he actually pays attention to are all the people he calls up on the phone: Roger Ailes. All these other people that are just kind of out in the world: Steve Bannon.” Ailes died over six months ago, in May 2017. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Carly Fiorina slammed the politicization of sexual assault on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace today. The former HP CEO and 2016 GOP presidential primary candidate called for institutional change, criticized both political parties, and even called out the former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. When asked why such sexual harassment occurs, Fiorina lamented the fact that in many circles it has been tantamount to an open secret. “In virtually all of these cases, there has been corroboration of the womens' cases. In virtually every case, it's not one woman who comes forward. I think what we all need to...

    The sexual-harassment lawsuit filed last year by former Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros against the network’s executives has morphed into a lawsuit about the lawsuit, with Fox News now filing its own counterclaim. Tantaros, former host of “The Five” and co-host of “Outnumbered,” filed suit in August 2016, alleging retaliation after she had taken exception to inappropriate remarks directed to her by former Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes. Ailes died earlier this month. “Fox News masquerades as a defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and...

    RUSH: Monica Lewinsky wrote an op-ed yesterday calling Fox News’ coverage of her relationship with Bill Clinton a nightmare. She said: “My character, my looks and my life were picked apart mercilessly.” The New York Times op-ed headline: “Monica Lewinsky: Roger Ailes’s Dream Was My Nightmare.” That’s right. Monica Lewinsky, who knowingly had, willingly, eagerly had affairs with Slick Willie in the White House, brought him pizza, brought him cigars, experimentation with cigars, you know every detail. Semen-stained blue dress. Somehow it’s Roger Ailes’ fault, because Roger Ailes started Fox News. And then it’s Matt Drudge’s fault because Matt Drudge...

    Roger Ailes was no genius, not in the league of Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein. The founding chairman of Fox News Channel, who died last week from complications after suffering a fall, understood and respected Middle America from whence he came. When the opportunity arrived to address the legitimate concerns of "flyover territory" about biased news coverage that frequently disparaged and stereotyped Middle America's values and beliefs, he seized it. While the cultural, political and especially media elites mocked the churchgoing, patriotic "family values" of conservatives, Ailes and Rupert Murdoch saw an opening, and they began appealing to a demographic...

    Google is by far the most used search engine in the world. Think about that. Left-wingers seem to hate the late Roger Ailes, who died May 18 at 77, more than they hate any other conservatives or Republicans. This hatred manifests itself in Google’s search results which are dramatically skewed in favor of articles attacking the extremely influential founder of Fox News, Ian Miles Cheong of Heat Street discovered. (See screen grab of search results above.)

    During a funeral service for Roger Ailes this weekend, the teenage son of the former Fox News chairman seemed to promise that he would have his revenge on the people who “betrayed” his father before his death. The memorial took place at St. Edward Roman Catholic Church in Palm Beach, Florida, and it was attended by conservative figures like Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, and various hosts and contributors for Fox News. Ingraham’s website Lifezette put out a report on the event, and they described the eulogy that was given by Ailes’ 17-year-old son, Zachary. “I loved my father. He considered...

    Many conservatives were in mourning Thursday after news broke of the death of Fox News mastermind Roger Ailes. In a statement, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell stated that “the Left would command a monopoly control of the so-called "news" media but for the Fox News Channel, and FNC would not exist but for him.” But for NBC, it was a time to tear down what he did for conservative media and politics in general. “The coroner says Ailes died from complications related to a head injury that he suffered after a fall in his home in Florida,” announced Anchor...

    In his view, the political showdown that was always bound to happen — which, to me, he had predicted several years before — had finally taken place, albeit uglier, and with more finality, than he had ever expected. “They got the memo,” he said, with some forbearance. “If you strike the king, you better kill him.” By “they,” he meant Rupert Murdoch’s sons. And most particularly James Murdoch, who, two years ago, was elevated to CEO of his father’s company, who Ailes regarded as an impetuous, grandiose, self-satisfied rich kid. Wryly, he admitted bringing this feud on himself: “I made...

    Shepard Smith, a Fox News anchor since 1996, revealed last week that he had no intention of opening up about his sexuality the way he did during an April speech at his alma mater.Speaking at a conference, Smith was tapped to talk on a panel titled “It Starts With MEek,” one that was meant to promote inclusivity and diversity. According to a report made by the Clarion-Ledger, Smith changed his speech at the last minute to reflect the crux of the conversation and decided to tell his own story of inclusivity and diversity.“It wasn’t until seven, or eight, or nine...

    But … we’ve already got One America News.The reason this is getting so much hype today is because the words “Roger Ailes” are swirling around the rumors. A well-placed source close to the proposal tells Mediaite that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network is moving too far to the left. The source, who is engaged in the talks, says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund...
