  • L.A. Pilot Production Falls To 8-Year Low; Straight-To-Series Surging, Says FilmLA

    08/02/2017 9:25:00 PM PDT · by Enterprise · 24 replies ^ | August 2, 2017 | Dominic Patton
    Los Angeles still leads the nation in television pilot production, but a study released today by FilmL.A. reveals that the home of Hollywood took a double-digit hit this year to fall to its lowest total since 2009. However, with pilots down this most recent cycle in all the major production centers except tax-incentive lucrative Louisiana, a jump in straight-to-series orders by cable outlets and the streaming services might be part of the problem.
  • Cooper Grills Florida AG On Gay Rights Record: ‘You Never Even Tweeted About Gay Pride Month!’

    On Tuesday’s CNN Newsroom, Anderson Cooper talked to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi about what she was doing to help the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting and their families. Instead of focusing on the topic at end, Cooper decided to attack Bondi on her gay rights record, relentlessly asking if she was a hypocrite for helping the gay community now when she allegedly didn’t defend them in office. In the five minute interview, Cooper repeatedly asked Bondi to explain how she could defend the victims of this shooting after “years” of “basically going after gay people” in court. “Do...
  • Same Name, Wrong Guy: Eagles Fans Blast “Chip Kelly” On Twitter

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- On Twitter, another "Chip Kelly" is bearing the brunt of the fury against the former Eagles coach, by the same name. 41-year-old Chip Kelly from California has used the Twitter handle @ChipKelly for about 8 years. He's been mistaken as the former Eagles head coach before, but nothing could have prepared him for Tuesday's firestorm on his Twitter account.
  • Inside MSNBC’s Impending Shakeup: Cancellations, Reboots and Chief Phil Griffin

    When President Obama was reelected in 2012, MSNBC was “leaning forward” and smiling wide as Obama 2.0 propelled it to record ratings and a firm grasp on the No. 2 spot in cable news. Over two years later, the network has fallen backwards. January ratings revealed double-digit declines compared with January, 2014 in all ratings measurements. During the day, MSNBC was down 20 percent in viewers and 37 percent in the advertising-coveted 25-54 demo. In primetime, it fell 23 percent in viewers and 39 percent in demo.

    It seems that the rhetoric against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has gone from hateful to downright graphic and violent. The Capitol Police are investigating online threats made by an individual against the Texas senator, a Cruz spokesperson said Friday.The threatening posts were made on Twitter by someone who identifies himself as Troy Gilmore Jr. and uses the Twitter handle @ArmyVet54. He has also listed Cruz’s home address in Houston several times and argued he needs to be “taught a street wise lesson.”“Take down Ted Cruz, at his home,” the person tweeted, listing Cruz’s home address in Houston.“Lets Find Ted...

    The Obama administration got some backing Sunday for the way in which it responded as terrorists attacked the US diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, last September – a night of violence and confusion during which Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed. Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, a Republican who served in both the Bush and Obama administrations, said if he had been at the Pentagon at that time, "Frankly … I think my decisions would have been just as theirs were.” Republican critics have said a Special Forces team or overflights by fighter aircraft based in Italy...

    SAN JOSE -- Amid inspirational talk, chanted mantras and shouts of victory at a late-night firewalking event attended by thousands Thursday came agonized shrieks from followers whose soles were scorched by the superheated coals, witnesses said. At least 21 people were treated for burn injuries after taking part in the crowning event of the first day of a Tony Robbins function downtown, including at least three who went to the hospital, a San Jose fire captain said. The people who suffered various second- and third-degree burn injuries were among more than 6,000 who attended the motivational speaker's event at the...

    A group of Harvard undergraduates have staged a walkout of economics professor Greg Mankiw's class, in solidarity with the Occupy movement. According to their statement, they know better than Mankiw what ought to be taught in an introductory economics course: "We are walking out today to join a Boston-wide march protesting the corporatization of higher education as part of the global Occupy movement. Since the biased nature of Economics 10 contributes to and symbolizes the increasing economic inequality in America, we are walking out of your class today both to protest your inadequate discussion of basic economic theory and to...
  • True Lies: Maddow Pumps Phony Poll to Push Tax Increase (True Twit, Part 2)

    03/09/2011 8:47:51 AM PST · by Michael van der Galien · 5 replies
    For days, Rachel Maddow (and Ed “Sergeant” Schultz) have been telling us that “a new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll says that 91% of the American people” want to raise taxes on millionaires to reduce the deficit. Is is true? Sort of. That’s the percentage of people who are okay with it of the people they called, in the context they asked the question. In other words, the poll they cite is the perfect example of how to get the answers the pollsters want. And it starts with the oldest trick in the book– the polling sample. When you want a...
  • Twitter for $10bn? Don't form a queue (This is a bubble that says 175M users are worth $57 each)

    The Guardian ^ | 02/11/2011 | Nilis Pratley
    AOL's purchase of The Huffington Post for $315m, or 10 times revenues, was bizarre. A valuation of $50bn for Facebook, which has revenues of $2bn, was extraordinary. But $10bn for Twitter? That's off the scale. It is 100 times revenues – this year's forecast revenues, not sales that have been generated yet. That cannot make sense. It is reported, however, that Twitter has been talking to potential suitors, including Google and Facebook, about a deal at such a sky-high price. But Twitter's last fundraising was only two months ago and valued the networking site at $3.9bn. Is the company supposed...

    Clint Eastwood is better known for his fists than his fashion sense, but that didn't stop GQ magazine from naming him a man of the year. Eastwood joins Barack Obama, Tom Brady, the three stars of "The Hangover" and "Star Trek" actor Chris Pine on five special covers for the December issue (, which hits newsstands Tuesday. Eastwood talks politics, love, religion, diet and women in a wide-ranging interview with deputy editor Michael Hainey, who calls the 79-year-old the "patron saint of late bloomers." Eastwood gained fame for his acting in the spaghetti Westerns of the 1960s, but won his...

    Political analyst Charlie Cook isn’t a fan of Twitter. Or at least politicians’ use of the social messaging tool. Cook opined a couple days ago that he has “yet to hear a single intelligent remark twittered by an elected official.” Maybe that’s because you’re bound by the medium. You’re only only allowed 140 characters each time you “tweet”. No matter to Cook. “The vacuous utterances Twittered daily from members of Congress make me wonder how they have the time to spend keying in on such banalities and marveling over the narcissism implicit in their belief that anyone cares about their...
