Add a new title to Al Sharpton’s résumé: film censor.
In the wake of Sony’s humiliating hacker scandal, which revealed liberal Hollywood executives making racially-insensitive (we’re being kind here) comments via email, the studio has handed the MSNBC talker / Obama confidante keys to its editing room. Read all »
Could a plastic cup almost certainly made in China really be worth $4999?
If it’s from “banned” Seth Rogan comedy The Interview, maybe yes and perhaps no. Since the film may yet start World War III, it’s really anyone’s guess. Read all »
When the mainstream media accepts something as fact, there’s simply no telling them otherwise. Regarding Sony’s cyberattack meltdown, however, shouldn’t we listen to the experts rather than lazy (or scheming) reporters?
Things may not be as they appear and misleading details provide unwarranted street cred to a dying dictatorial regime.
Between our hapless federal government and major news outfits, the disruption that brought the studio to its knees is blamed entirely on North Korea. In a piece posted late this afternoon, CNBC spells out how the Hermit Kingdom has (supposedly) pulled this off: Read all »
Think the Kim Regime will target Ebay next?
In the wake of North Korea’s huge success in bringing Sony to its knees, relatively scarce promotional items for “The Interview” are now bringing in big bucks.
Starring Seth Rogan and James Franco, the ill-fated comedy film’s portrays two American journalists who are instructed to kill the country’s dictator during in an-person meeting. The Kim dictatorship responded with an unprecedented attack on Sony Pictures, its producer. Read all »
It’s been a great week for thug regimes: between North Korea’s epic dismantling of Sony and Obama’s free pass for Cuba’s Castros, dictators everywhere are popping champagne corks.
Sony’s absolute cowardice in the face of the Kim regime’s apparently strong hacking skills (which caught the Obama Administration off-guard) is angering the public and especially those involved in the making of now-shelved comedy The Interview: Read all »
Hey, outside of Ferguson itself, why are so many of the protesters / rioters / general soreheads white? Or even worse, pale males?
That’s the question posed today by the San Francisco Chronicle, exploring in-depth what some had observed during recent anti-police meltdowns in the Bay Area. According to the piece, African-Americans are increasingly feeling pushed right out of marches by street cred-seeking whites who resort to violence, vandalism and at the very least, rampant bullhorn-hogging.
There’s even a term for it: “march-jacking”. Read all »
While it’s no secret conservative talkers haven’t exactly been buddies with House Speaker John Boehner, they seemed to stop short of calling for his outright removal. But with the Ohio Republican’s shady new budget deal with President Obama that has them looking like BFFs, the gloves have truly come off.
During Thursday’s show, Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity called for the perma-tanned pol’s ousting, comparing him with disgraced Obamacare architect/ loose cannon Jonathan Gruber: Read all »
Let’s make one thing clear up front: the only potentially stupid thing Rick Perry has done is agree to be interviewed by anyone employed at NBC.
Beyond that, left-wing criticism that the outgoing Texas governor didn’t answer one of its moronic questions fast enough is absurd. Should “are you smart enough to be president?” be dignified with a response? Perry skated around it smoothly, almost as if he’d expected it. Read all »
Things are quickly turning ugly for “progressive” media darling Lena Dunham, but if her friends have their way, you’ll never know a thing about it.
Back in October when the issue first surfaced, we wondered how the “Girls” star’s story of a “mustachioed campus Republican” rapist named “Barry” would hold up under scrutiny. In the weeks after the release of her book, where her rape allegations were first made, skeptics began to dig around for clues.
In the meantime, a real guy named Barry (and campus Republican) who attended Oberlin College at the same time as Dunham set up a legal fund to defend himself from wherever this might lead. Read all »
We’d never given much thought to Chris Rock’s expertise on economics, but a recent class warfare-laden rant has some raking him over the coals.
At the Mises Institute, a Canadian-based free markets think tank, the actor/ comedian is held up as a textbook example of Hollywood ignorance. As Rock claims to understand the impoverished masses and their supposed yearning for caviar and celebrity bartenders, the group’s James E Miller maintains he has it backwards: Read all »
