  • Doc ‘Poliwood’ spins out of control

    POLIWOOD: D Tonight at 7:30 on Showtime. Director Barry Levinson’s 90-minute “Poliwood” is billed as a film essay. That’s like calling the back of a cereal box a novel. Say what you will about Michael Moore, but at least he knows how to spin a story. Levinson (“Rain Man”) aims to explore the crash of politics, celebrity and media. He’s fascinated as to why performers are greeted with hostility when they become politically active. He trails famous members of the Creative Coalition, Hollywood’s nonprofit, nonpartisan lobbying group for arts funding, through the 2008 Democratic and Republican presidential conventions. The coalition’s...

    "...In fact, as I discovered when we met, he had majored in Chinese and Spanish at SUNY Binghamton, and then taken a Masters in Chinese at St. John’s, followed by a year on scholarship at the University of Taiwan. He spent almost half of that time backpacking through the Golden Triangle. Or, as I would put it to him, “backpacking”. He was too serious to be a tourist; and too smart to be on some Pineapple Express. What else was left but CIA?

    SILVER'S BRAVERY NOT AN ACTMarch 18, 2009 I wish I could ask Ron Silver what he thinks of the AIG bonuses. He'd have some original take -- maybe propose re-opening the bonuses paid to Franklin Raines and Jamie Gorelick for their yeoman's work running Fannie Mae into the ground and then collecting bonuses of $90 million and $24.7 million, respectively. Or maybe he'd just make a joke. But I can't ask him anymore because Ron died of a rare esophageal cancer last Sunday. So now there is one less person in the world who never chooses his positions to feed...

    Much like the crisis that was too good to ignore as we rushed to spend 4 year's worth of money in 14 days, the AIG bonus debacle was just too rich for Democrats to pass up. Here's a tip: Democrats believe that finding an easy target to prop up as enemy #1 makes them seem superior. Limbaugh yesterday, AIG today. Meanwhile, someone is escaping out the back door with all of your money, in sums that make the AIG bonuses seem like tip jar money!

    Actor Ron Silver, who won a Tony Award as a take-no-prisoners Hollywood producer in David Mamet's "Speed-the-Plow" and did a political about-face from loyal Democrat to Republican activist after the Sept. 11 attacks, died Sunday at the age of 62. "Ron Silver died peacefully in his sleep with his family around him early Sunday morning" in New York City, said Robin Bronk, executive director of the Creative Coalition, which Silver helped found.

    Actor and longtime political activist Ron Silver died this morning, succumbing to a long battle with cancer, friends of the liberal Democrat-turned-GOP stalwart told The Post. "Ron Silver died peacefully in his sleep with his family around him this morning," said Robin Bronk, executive director of the Creative Coalition, which Silver helped create. "He had been fighting esophageal cancer for two years and his family is making arrangements for a private service." Friends of Silver first told Post columnist Cindy Adams of the native New Yorker's death. The steely-eyed, blunt-talking Silver, 62, enjoyed a long career on the stage, TV...

    POLITICIAN turned actor turned politician Fred Thompson may have a Hollywood strategy when it comes to his presidential run (after all, he did announce his candidacy this week on the Jay Leno show), but he'll have a hard time getting a Hollywood audience. For starters, the entertainment industry Democrats are much too busy shuttling between Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton fundraisers to even think about helping out a fellow actor, let alone a conservative Republican one. And the Hollywood Republicans -- what few there are -- already have yard signs out for the far more moderate Rudolph W. Giuliani....

But he is sinking his teeth into his new role: conservative activist. Today, Silver will release a documentary on DVD called "Broken Promises," a scathing criticism of what Silver considers the failures of the United Nations on its 60th anniversary. It follows on the heels of a DVD retort last year by Silver to Michael Moore called "Fahren-hype 911," carefully named so it would be placed...

He was not on the announced list of speakers, and I didn't catch his name. I think he was a little dispirited by the turnout. Tracy Byrd gave a very good performance to end the rally; and passing tourists joined the audience.

    For years, Ron Silver was a partisan Democrat. But everything changed for Silver after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Now he calls himself a "9/12 Republican." A strong supporter of Israel and the war in Iraq, Silver spoke at the Republican National Convention and is featured prominently in a new documentary, "Fahrenhype 9/11," a searing indictment of Michael Moore's blockbuster film. Silver says his political change of heart and outspoken support of President Bush has exacted a high professional cost in Hollywood, where Republicans are a decidedly rare breed.

But in 1991 when Saddam's troops were in Kuwait, President Bush's father formed a coaliton that included France, Germany, and a final UN Security Council resolution endorsing the use of force. But Kerry still voted NO on January 12, 1991 when he was asked to support the UN authorization and send US troops to Kuwait. If Kerry could not even confront Saddam...

    "There is no terrorist threat." Those are the words of uber-liberal filmmaker and author Michael Moore, whose controversial film "Fahrenheit 9/11," which essentially blamed President Bush for the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, has sparked a number of counter-films. One of them, "Fahrenhype 9/11," by Alan Peterson, features interviews with a number of today's most influential decision-makers, analysts and pundits. Narrated by actor Ron Silver — an admitted two-time Bill Clinton supporter who is highly critical of Moore — the film dissects Moore's work point by point, even featuring a number of people who appeared in the liberal icon's original...

Even though Silver made it plain in his address that he disagrees with President Bush on domestic issues, he claims he is catching it for hailing the war on Saddam.

    New York, N.Y. — Let me lead off the way the Republican convention led off: with former New York mayor Ed Koch (who introduced the current mayor, Michael Bloomberg). In the 1980s, Bob Novak called Koch "the most interesting politician in America." I think I agreed with that. Koch has, if anything, grown more interesting. His Republican convention speech — here — was utterly charming. It stated plainly that he is supporting President Bush. Koch is a 9/11 Democrat — a Democrat profoundly and properly influenced by that day. The actor Ron Silver is a 9/11 Democrat too (and more...

    Unlike our coverage of the Democratic Convention, we will not be giving grades or commenting on every speaker. The reason? Most of the folks up on the dais are normal and not spitting angry, unlike the freak show held yesterday in the streets or last month in Boston. That makes it a bit harder to "grade". If we have one complaint it's with the RNC "correspondents" who are "interviewing" people. They're a bit annoying. And while John McCain and Rudy Giuliani had the prime speaking slots, and both gave amazing and moving speeches - or in Giuliani's case, a spectacular...

    Ron Silver...WOW. I never thought I would be impressed by this man and he blew me away tonight with his passion for W. I just wish the crowd had the same feelings back as well as some of the other stuffed shirt Republicans out there. I know he is a lib and will probably go back to being so after this election but for now...the guy deserves some applause from us. Good solid speech and motivating. Should have had him on a bit later in the evening imo. To me the crowd just seems so out of it. Too much...

    After listening to Ron Silver speak again on how Bush is a radical liberal who really is espousing many of the beliefs that many of the hollyweird crowd now seem to hate, I think he should give a speech at the GOP convention, just on the war on terror and Iraq. He is very eloquent and makes a very strong argument I think that would speak towards not only the undecideds but some of the liberals that do believe in a strong defense and pro-active pre-emption. What say you guys?

    The O'Reilly Factor | 7-13-04
    Did anyone just see Ron Silver on O'Reilly? He was not only condemning the Radio City Hate Fest, but he was lavishing praise on the President. O'Reilly told him that his career in Hollywood was over. Then Silver started taking pot-shots at the Hollywood mentality. He called the President, I believe, a visionary, and listed him amongst the great Presidents. His honesty, coming from Hollywood, was quite refreshing. Thank you, Mr. Silver!
  • Actors Grammer, Priestley and Duvall Denounce Anti-War Celebs

    At Saturday's White House Correspondents Association dinner, actors Kelsey Grammer, Jason Priestley, Robert Duvall and Ron Silver all told CNSNews.com reporter Marc Morano how they disagreed with Michael Moore's anti-Bush rant at the Academy Awards and wish their fellow celebrities would refrain from making comments about politics. Priestley, Morano relayed, “lamented the excessive coverage of anti-war celebrities by what he termed the 'liberal media.'” And, Morano learned, “CNN's Bob Franken did not like Fox News's use of the phrase 'we' when covering the U.S. armed forces during the war.” An excerpt from Morano's April 28 story about what the actors...
