    An actor best known for his roles in the television series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Criminal Minds" got into an argument with a girlfriend, choked her and was arrested, police said Thursday. Nicholas Brendon, who played Xander Harris on "Buffy" from 1997 to 2003 and Kevin Lynch on "Criminal Minds" from 2007 to 2014, faces charges of robbery, obstruction of breathing and criminal mischief, Saratoga Springs police Lt. Bob Jillson said. The girlfriend told police officers who were called to a downtown hotel on Wednesday night that she had gone to return property to Brendon and told him she...

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 It seems Jennifer Lawrence’s thoughts on Donald Trump echo Katniss Everdeen’s feelings toward President Snow. For the uninitiated, that means she’s not a fan. During a lively conversation with the three leads of the final installment of The Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay — Part 2, the Republican presidential candidate became the topic of conversation. “If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world,” says Lawrence. Her co-star Liam Hemsworth feels the same: “I’ll back you up on that,” he adds. Josh Hutcherson, the third lead in the massive franchise,...

    Vincent Price created Snowden in a lab. When you’re looking for someone who can intelligently discuss the world of international espionage and Edward Snowden, there’s at least a small chance that choosing someone with the Twitter handle “@fart” is a mistake. No, scratch that, there’s a 100% chance that it’s a mistake. Apparently, there’s also a 100% chance that the fine folks who run CNN’s sister network, Headline News, will make that mistake. Yesterday, during a segment discussing Snowden’s new Twitter presence, the Nancy Grace network featured a guest named “John Hendren.” Evidently, they thought they were booking an Al...

    Recent media coverage of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has noted that the loudmouthed billionaire currently leading the Republican field in public opinion polls has been increasingly eager to complain to his audiences about how the “dishonest” media is covering his campaign. Floating theories about NBC suppressing coverage of its own polls in order to report on other findings less friendly to Trump and about the heat on the stage at CNN’s debate last week, the real estate mogul and former reality television star has come across as a little bit paranoid. Of course, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t meant they...

    It’s remarkable watching Donald Trump eviscerate the mainstream media. If this was “The Matrix” he’s Neo.  If this was “Star Trek,” I’d be like Spock studying a new intelligent life in the universe that feeds off its own popularity: the more energy put into killing it, the stronger it gets. Trump is the hate eater; he digests abhorrence and excretes devotion. “Fascinating,” the Spock in me says, watching Trump effortlessly turn “60 Minutes” host Scott Pelley into Jell-O, then deliver his own sound bite right on cue.  It wasn’t even challenging for the master of manipulation, like Bruce Lee playing...

The former Saturday Night Live cast member delivered a series of one liners about industry diversity, sexism, ageism, and politics, including jokes about Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). “Donald Trump, of course is running for president, to the delight of uncles everywhere. I’ve got to say, sure, Donald Trump seems racist—What else?” Samberg’s Bernie Sanders joke was more mild. The comedian said the Vermont socialist “always looks like his flight was delayed.” “The guy’s a mess,”...

While CNN and the Republican National Committee (RNC) were riveting millions on a televised fight-fest of tacky Jerry Springer style, Jarrett was openly consorting with the country’s top race war activists.

This is the reality that Trump is standing for; we are the center-right majority that is coming out for Trump. Tonight's debate is to convince us, the "not-so-silent" majority, that Trump is beyond the pale, unfit to serve as President, and that anyone who supports Trump is an outlier, in the minority.

Donald Trump may be the lead choice of California Republicans, but Ted Cruz apparently still holds a special place in the hearts of Los Angeles’ conservative street artists.

    TORONTO (AP) — “Mike’s Happy Movie” was the working title of Michael Moore’s latest documentary, “Where to Invade Next,” but few would consider its examination of American ills — from runaway college tuition to mass incarceration — the stuff of bubbly, feel-good delight. Yet “Where to Invade Next,” in which Moore plunders foreign (mostly European) ideas like Italy’s government-mandated vacation or Portugal’s decriminalized drug use to bring back home to America, has an unmistakable whiff of hope. Yes, Moore, that passionately voluble critic and left-wing icon, is feeling a wind at his back. Moore’s first film in six years, he...

    One of television’s most sacred and central responsibilities is making sure they only display images that are “right and appropriate” for the viewing public to consume. Yet, judging by NBC’s decision to not show the post-game prayer gathering of players on the field after the Patriots’ 28-21 victory over the Steelers in the Thursday night Kickoff Special, NBC clearly believes public displays of the Christian faith are not suitable for all audiences. It isn’t as if the prayer didn’t happen. Despite the heavy downpour, members of the Patriots and some of their coaching staff knelt and bowed their heads. MRCTV’s...

Like Roof, Flanagan’s cause was race. Flanagan was race-obsessed and, like Roof, wanted to incite a race war. I agree with Hugh Hewitt that it is a mistake to pay attention to “manifestos” left behind by insane killers. It only encourages them. But if we are going to take seriously the ideology of lunatics, it must be a two-way street. Dylann Roof’s racist ideology was taken very seriously,...

Here’s your open thread to gripe, grumble, and groan about the great Fox News/amnesty/anti-Trump alliance. Easy prediction, though: Kelly will go out of her way to challenge Ramos on whether he...

    What does ‘The Best of Enemies’ get wrong? Just about everything, but especially the battle between left and right. I'm disappointed to report that “The Best of Enemies,” the new film about William F. Buckley and Gore Vidal, is the worst of documentaries. I should know—I was acquainted with both men, and neither the individuals nor their philosophies are accurately portrayed. Worst of all, the movie badly misrepresents the very issue it purports to illuminate: the titanic battle between liberalism and conservatism in the middle of the 20th century. From the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, as a second-generation neoconservative Democrat,...

    Campbell Brown and Kirsten Powers take on the leftist establishment Democrats are known for many things, but chief among them is the relentless determination to maintain a rigid progressive orthodoxy within their ranks. Bucking that orthodoxy requires character and conviction because those who do can expect a certain level of contempt directed their way from their oh-so-tolerant brethren. Campbell Brown and Kirsten Powers are two women who have demonstrated a willingness to take positions decidedly at odds with the progressive establishment. Brown’s Democratic roots can be traced back to her father, Louisiana Democratic State Senator and Secretary of State James...

    Everyone loves a love story. And what makes a movie ever better is if is based on a true story. So what happens when you have a true love story and have it starring Chris Pratt? You get the real life love story of Chris Pratt, in a case of art imitating life imitating art. You see, Chris Pratt has made the public announcement that from this point forth, he refuses to participate in any movie love scenes. Why? For two reasons. One, he is married to the love of his life, comedy actress Anna Faris so he doesn’t want...

    Dear Fox News. Please get rid of Geraldo Rivera. I can't watch the 5 anymore. Bring the drunk guy back. He never made any sense either, but he was quieter. The 5 used to be my favorite talking head show. Now it's a screaming head show. I vote for Camille Paglia to replace Geraldo. At least we'll gain some understanding of progressive liberalthink thinking.

    A funny thing happened to Donald Trump on the way to the first national debate among Republican presidential hopefuls on Fox News. He was transformed from a media-baiting court jester to a legitimate political force. In the process, he cemented his front-runner status among the crowded field of GOP candidates. This was made possible by the cultural phenomenon that is reality TV. Thanks to the rapid blurring of "real reality" with the "scripted reality" of reality TV, debate viewers had no difficulty fully embracing him as another, over-the-top character in the national reality show that is the presidential race. We...

Platte River Networks Vice President of Sales & Marketing David DeCamillis has a “regular live monthly spot as a Tech Expert for Fox 31 TV on their morning show.” (Platte River Networks) “What can we say, the guy was meant for TV,” the Denver company boasted about DeCamillis after one of his regular Fox stints last...

[…] After she announced her vacation, many took to Twitter to share their theories that her “vacation” may, in fact, be a suspension…

      The only thing new is, the current media incursion into politics--trying to dominate instead of report--is coming from "the right".  The 4th Estate, of course, being the media, the 2nd being The Lords Temporal (either, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, George Soros & the Koch Bros., et cetera; or the Senate), and the 3rd being Commons (Congress). History says, there have already been two main incursions of media to destabilize American politics.This is roughly analogous to the military making an incursion into politics, as with Gen. Douglas MacArthur of Old Soldiers Never Die, and Gen. Smedley Darlington Butler of Jules Archer's...

    Murdoch's message to blunt Trump's rise in the polls came loud and clear over his social media and publishing outlets Rupert Murdoch handed over 21st Century Fox, the conglomerate behind Fox News, to sons James and Lachlan July 1, 2015. James is now CEO and Lachlan executive co-chairman. Last year Murdoch elevated his sons to prominent positions, James to co-COO and Lachlan to non-executive co-chairman, but the turnover of the conglomerate came sooner than expected. For 15 years, Roger Ailes has enjoyed near total autonomy as head of Fox News, but Ailes’ sovereign rule ended abruptly with the move. A...
