At 7 feet, 4 inches tall, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar can certainly tell a tall tale. Writing on the Hollywood Reporter site, he makes the incredible claim that the national anthem is the equivalent of the feel-good songs slaves were forced to sing to drown out their oppression.



CW strikes again to defeat the bigots and the homophobes. After just recently casting transgender activist Nicole Maines as a transgender superhero, the broadcasting company has made another statement by casting openly lesbian Ruby Rose as Batwoman.



The producer of Tom Arnold's upcoming series, The Hunt for the Trump Tapes on Viceland has admitted there is just one little problem with that effort. They have not actually found any tape that could bring Trump down.



Racial discrimination expert and social justice knight Anne Hathaway is leading the Hollywood charge against “white privilege” in America. Following the tragic, unprovoked murder of Nia Wilson in Oakland on July 22, Hathaway took to social media to unleash a scorching rebuke of white people for their inaction regarding racism in America.



Shaquille O'Neal was one of the most dominant centers in the history of the NBA and now he is one of the most popular entertainers among athletes retired and active, with a growing list of TV commercials and movie credits. He's also a good citizen who wants to serve as a sheriff in Georgia. But to the divisive ESPN writer Howard Bryant, one of America's leading social justice enforcers, Shaq is a piker who should be rushing to join the crusade of race-baiting Kaepernick malcontents.



Defying credibility, The Hollywood Reporter's Marisa Guthrie today tries to make a case that ESPN is more conservative than you think. In her story, "ESPN's Internal Political Divide: Bristol Tradition vs. 'Woke' Reformers," she claims much of the leadership in Bristol, Conn., is conservative, though the "independent" network is often characterized as a pinko lefty operation. 



The Hollywood Reporter is hyping how Chris Hayes is #1 in something called "Social Media Ranking." This has nothing to do with actual audience size which remains much smaller than that of Fox News star Tucker Carlson in the same time period.

First, frequent cable and broadcast news guest/Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti threatened on Monday to sue the Daily Caller for defamation.

It should come as no surprise that liberal comedian Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, doesn’t watch Fox News. In fact, he dismissed the top-rated cable channel as not the “villain we’re chasing after.” According to an article posted on Monday by The Hollywood Reporter's Jeremy Barr, one of the biggest differences between Noah and previous host Jon Stewart is the fact that “Noah’s version rarely touches on the network” while Stewart “was heavy on criticisms” of FNC.



In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published on Thursday, CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell confessed that if she had known about Charlie Rose’s sexual harassment of women she probably would not have confronted him directly because he would have “screamed” at her.

Less than a week after Univision smeared the Trump tax cuts, the owner of that broadcasting network, Haim Saban, has announced that he will be giving $1000 bonuses to his employees due to those same tax cuts. In fact, as we shall see, Saban very specifically credited those same tax cuts as the reason for the bonuses.
