Watch Live Stream of News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch Facing Questions from British Parliament Here (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 19th 2011 7:33AM
The phone-hacking scandal that took down British tabloid newspaper 'The News of the World' and could now threaten the parent company behind Fox TV, has reached all the way up to the top of the corporate power structure.

Today, News Corp. Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch, his son James and former senior executive Rebekah Brooks will be quizzed by British MPs on what they knew about the phone hacking allegations engulfing News International, the British arm of Murdoch's global empire, and whether there was a cover-up.

They are not the only ones facing questions today. Two former high-ranking police officers will also be appearing. Sir Paul Stephenson resigned as Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sunday night, and John Yates quit his post as an Assistant Commissioner Monday.

Glenn Beck Says Goodbye To Fox News (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 30th 2011 9:30PM
A clip from the retrospective on the last broadcast of the 'Glenn Beck Show' on FOX NewsGlenn Beck said goodbye to his audience and looked back on his tumultuous tenure at Fox News on Thursday, the last episode of the 'Glenn Beck Show' (weekdays, 5PM on Fox News). Of course, there was the requisite career retrospective full of clips from his time on the network, starting with his first show January 19, 2009. Media Matters had released their own highlight reel of Beck's most outrageous statements earlier in the day, but Beck's focused on the good times.

"This is only the third time that I've actually done live TV, so buckle up 'cuz it could get very, very bumpy," he said on that first broadcast. The mostly goofy clips that followed confirmed that, as Beck struggled to find the correct camera to address and pieces of his backdrop fell behind him, interrupting a rant about out of control government.

President Obama Urges Congress To Get Debt Ceiling Deal Done Before Deadline, Like His Daughters Do Their Homework (VIDEO)

President Obama discusses the debt ceiling on Fox NewsIn his first press conference since March, President Obama urged Congressional leaders to come together to reach a deal on the debt ceiling in advance of the looming August 2 deadline. Speaking live at an event carried by all the major networks, Obama argued that the game of political brinksmanship being played was harmful to the economy and downright irresponsible. Adding a dose of humor to the proceedings, he used his young daughters' homework habits as an example of what he'd like to see from Congress.

"That's not how responsible families act," Obama said. "Malia and Sasha generally finish their homework a day ahead of time. Malia's 13, Sasha's 10. It is impressive. They don't wait until the night before, they're not pulling all-nighters."

"You know, Congress can do the same thing," he continued. "If you know you've got to do something, just do it." Now, some might say that international economics are slightly more complicated than Algebra I, but he's got a good point anyway.

Jon Stewart Says Fox News Told the Truth, and Then Took it Back (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart, 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'We have a feeling that this little television "conversation" between Jon Stewart and Chris Wallace isn't going to end any time soon. Unless Wallace just backs down and stops talking about it altogether. It seems every time Wallace goes to defend himself, 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) is ready to volley the ball right back into their court.

When Jon Stewart was on Wallace' show a few weeks, the host said: "I think we're the counterpoint [of NBC News]. I think that they have a liberal agenda and I think we tell the other side of the story."

Stewart jumped on that "other side" statement as an admission, by Wallace, of a conservative agenda, but Wallace has rebutted that by clarifying his intention.

Glenn Beck Made $32 Million in Past Year, But Not Much from Fox

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 8th 2010 3:32PM
Glenn BeckForbes has an interesting article about the sources of Glenn Beck's income. Interestingly, only $2 million of his $32 million annual salary comes from his Fox News show where he gets most of his publicity. The majority of the money comes from his radio and publishing empire. It could be said that Fox News is the platform from which he hawks the rest of his wares.

But as Master Yogurt said, merchandising is where the real money from the movie comes from. Pretty soon I'm sure we'll be seeing the Glenn Beck action figure, the Glenn Beck cookbook, the Glenn Beck barbecue grill and the Glenn Beck video game for the Wii which will come with its own interactive chalkboard.

However, to put things in perspective: no matter how much the man makes from his media empire, Glenn Beck will still make a lot less in annual income than Oprah.

Fox News Airing Sarah Palin Special on April 1

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 31st 2010 8:04AM
Sarah PalinHaving Sarah Palin on Fox News is a bit of a no-brainer, particularly since they appeal to the same demographic. Rupert Murdoch takes full advantage of this fact when she appears as a contributor and will do so again this coming Thursday when the former Governor hosts 'Real American Stories.'

The show will be your basic celebrity interview show in which successful Americans reveal the history and secrets of their success. Guests will include Toby Keith, LL Cool J and former GE CEO Jack Welch. Hopefully they'll be on the same show and they'll be fighting each other in a ring.

Honestly, Sarah Palin is so busy nowadays. She's got her book. She's got her new reality show on TLC. Pretty soon she'll be getting her own sitcom on NBC Thursday nights. Hmmmm.

Whatever you do, don't read too much into the fact that the show begins on April Fool's Day. No, stop reading into that. Stop that right now. That's not appreciated.

Martin Short Joins 'Tax Man' Sitcom

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 27th 2010 2:02PM
Martin ShortMartin Short will be joining David Krumholtz in the new Fox comedy series 'Tax Man.' Short will be playing an obnoxious, overbearing boss in the vein of Alec Baldwin's Jack Donaghy on '30 Rock.' That description might be a bit of an exaggeration.

While Martin Short did give an impressive dramatic turn on 'Damages,' he's no Alec Baldwin. He plays the little neurotic guy much better than he could play a confident businessman with ethical issues like Jack Donaghy. He'd be better off playing characters like Leo Bloom in 'The Producers'.

The combination of David Krumholtz and Martin Short is an interesting one. It would be worth tuning in just for that. Hey, both have even appeared in 'The Santa Clause' movie franchise.

Can Short pull this role off? It's television and anything is possible. Short could create a character that is a combination of Jack Donaghy and Leo Bloom, maybe with a little Ed Grimley thrown in for good measure.

Glenn Beck Explains His 'Antichrist' Comment, We Explain the Rest of It

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 26th 2010 1:04PM
One of the weirder entertainment feuds, one even weirder than the famed Nipsey Russell-Herve Villechaize knife fight of 1976, has emerged in our midst.

A few days ago, Oscar winning director James Cameron got extra chatty with a Hollywood Reporter, er, reporter and let loose on anti-global warming zealots and Glenn Beck (and no, that last sentence wasn't meant to be redundant). It got so heated and ridiculous that it made me wish 'Celebrity Deathmatch' was still on the air and not in the claymation format.

Beck, of course, heard the comment in which Cameron claimed Beck had once referred to him as the "Antichrist". Beck dove into his archives, found the rather un-Christian reference he made towards the 'Avatar' director and post a full response to Mr. Cameron on his Wednesday show.



Of course, that's not the whole story.

Glenn Beck Feuds With James Cameron (VIDEO)

Glenn Beck Feuds with James Cameron'Avatar' director James Cameron is currently in a war of words with Glenn Beck, the controversial Fox News pundit. The feud gets a little complicated, but we'll break it down for you.

Three years ago, Beck called Cameron "the Antichrist" for making 'Titanic.' (Apparently, Beck is not a big fan of the film, or of the Celine Dion song that accompanied it.) Cameron recently heard about the remark and replied by calling Beck -- and we quote -- "A f--king a--hole."

Now, on 'The Glenn Beck Program' (weekdays, 5PM ET on FNC), Beck strikes back. While wearing 3D glasses, he mocked Cameron and 'Avatar,' saying that Cameron made a billion dollars off of a "Smurf-murdering movie,' and adding: "It's time to step away from the CGI, just for a minute, Jim."

Considering that Glenn Beck is involved, we're guessing that this feud is only just starting to heat up. Watch the entire clip to get the full story!

James Cameron Doesn't Think Much of Fox News' Glenn Beck

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 24th 2010 7:32PM
Glenn BeckActually, that's putting it mildly. James Cameron probably has a higher opinion of mosquito bites because as Ned Flanders once put it, "They sure are fun to scratch."

Cameron had a sit down with Hollywood Reporter reporter Alex Ben Block for the DVD release of his Oscar nominated film 'Avatar' and the two somehow got to talking about global warming and the pandemic of people on both sides of the aisles.

This segued into that all-important political topic of Glenn Beck, prompting Cameron to call him a "[BLANK]ing [BLANK]hole," only he didn't say "blank." Use your imagination.

Behold the Unrelenting Horror of (Gulp!) McG's 'Spaced' Remake

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 23rd 2010 11:03AM
Simon Pegg, Julia Deakin and Jessica Hynes on the BBC sitcom
There are very few moments in American history when the unrepresented and disenfranchised masses of society manage to muster together enough courage and strength to topple the high watermark of oppression. They seem to come along once in a millennium, but when they do, they give you this warm and fuzzy feeling inside that maybe life doesn't suck as much as you thought it did and everything, like the movies, may actually turn out alright in the end, closing credits, fade-to-black.

The early days of the American colonies saw the uprising of the Boston Tea Party in which angry settlers grew tired of unreasonable taxation. The mid 20th century saw the sluggish but eventual snowballing steamroll of the Civil Rights Movement. And I like to think that the new millennium's moment of triumph goes to the total destruction and annihilation of Fox's 'Spaced' remake. Granted, I'm not setting the bar very high, but it's only been ten years. Baby steps.

'Family Guy' Actress With Down Syndrome Diffuses Sarah Palin's Latest TV Outrage

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 23rd 2010 10:00AM
Family Guy, Down Syndrome, Sarah PalinSarah Palin, a media gadfly who seems to have found more things to be offended about on television than the Parents Television Council, seems to pop up every time there is a joke about her and her family.

This time, Ellen, a character with Down syndrome voiced by actress Andrea Fay Friedman who also has Down syndrome, goes on a date with Chris and says that her mother is "the former Governor of Alaska." This sent the Palin family into an anger spiral that prompted her to trash the show and characterize it as an attack on her young son Trig, who also has Down syndrome, and everyone suffering from mental illness.

However, what Palin and the rest of the outraged among us fail to realize is that they suffer from a far greater disability: a lack of a sense of humor.

Seth MacFarlane: 'Down Syndrome Actress Doesn't Need Sarah Palin's Pity' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 22nd 2010 12:20AM
Real Time With Bill Maher, Seth MacFarlane, Sarah PalinBlend together Seth MacFarlane, Bill O'Reilly, Sarah Palin, and a Down syndrome actress, and things are probably going to get a little touchy.

On 'Real Time With Bill Maher' (Fri., 10PM ET on HBO), MacFarlane discussed a 'Family Guy' clip depicting a character with Down syndrome talking about her parents -- an accountant and the former Governor of Alaska.

The actress who voiced the part actually has Down syndrome and released a statement. "It was basically saying Sarah Palin has no sense of humor," said MacFarlane. "What Sarah Palin, I think, was doing was coming out and saying 'I'm here to defend you,' and what Andrea the actress had said was 'I don't need you to use this piece of cartoon footage to inspire phony pity for me, because I'm very happy and very content with my life.'"

Thoughts on this? Is the 'Family Guy' clip funny or offensive? Was Palin right to try and defend the actress?
