    LOS ANGELES On Thursday, the world stopped for the death of Anna Nicole Smith. Harvard is electing its first woman president, and the country may be ready to do the same, but the woman of the hour was the one who, as the producer of her most recent film put it, had the market cornered on the dumb blonde act. Why is there still such a vibrant market for the dumb blonde act? People will see that maybe I have a little talent and will take me serious as an actress, she said, in explaining her decision to star...

    Michael Moore - gadfly filmmaker, liberal activist and political lightning rod - says he finds himself being hugged by a lot of Republicans these days. On the streets of Traverse City, where Moore is working on last-minute preparations for a bigger-and-better sequel to the film festival he launched last year in his home state, the Oscar-winning director says he is approached all the time by conservatives ready to make peace. "If you were to hang out with me here it won't be five or 10 minutes before you see a Republican hug me. That is almost as entertaining as some...

But Israeli officials insist the protest, launched on Sunday, is a ploy to secure easier communication with militant groups waging an almost four-year-old uprising, and have vowed to fight the prisoners liquids-only fast.

A close reading of Ms. Goldbergs remarks divulges Hollywoods fundamental misunderstanding of the First Amendment and the freedom of expression.

    Slim Fast should be congratulated for their quick response to thousands of requests to remove Whoopi Goldberg as their spokeperson. They didn't drag their feet, they didn't make excuses, they did the right thing by showing they did not want to tie their name to the left-wing, disrespectful, insulting comments of washed up Whoopi. Glad her TV show was cancelled. Hope all of her endeavours fall flat. She deserves nothing more. She goes far beyond the right of dissent and freedom of expression with her nasty tirades.
