‘Bombshell’ Movie Slamming Fox News Falls to 9th Place in Theaters
January 3rd, 2020 9:41 AM
Since the Fox News Channel is dominating the cable TV market, it was inevitable that Hollywood would focus attention on the network and produce movies that show its negative side in the hope that liberals would flock to theaters to see them. While that was apparently the motivation behind Bombshell -- a “docudrama” that deals with the sexual misconduct charges made by female employees…

June 30th, 2019 6:13 AM
USA Today TV critic Kelly Lawler was less than impressed at the latest "docudrama" trashing the life and legacy of Fox News creator Roger Ailes on Friday.

Fox-Obsessed NY Times Revels in Trashy TV Shows and Play
June 20th, 2019 10:40 PM
James Poniewozik, the New York Times’ chief TV critic, ran a fevered attack on three recent works -- two television shows and a play -- that render media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his outlets, including the Roger Ailes-led Fox News, in unflattering terms.

December 29th, 2018 6:59 AM
Liberal celebrity Seth MacFarlane is the creative force behind such TV projects as the disgusting Family Guy cartoon and the Star Trek ripoff series The Orville.

Bozell & Graham Column: Hollywood Gangs Up on Roger Ailes
December 15th, 2018 8:45 AM
Talk-radio host and friend Chris Plante recently made an excellent point about Hollywood. As horrible new revelations of sexual misbehavior surface about CBS CEO Les Moonves, it’s highly unlikely anyone’s going to make a movie about him, or about Matt Lauer, or about Charlie Rose, and so on. But there are two fictional projects supposedly based on (and a new documentary about) the…

Wednesday afternoon’s MSNBC Live illustrated where the left stood on the Brett Kavanaugh fiasco as host Katy Tur aired a video mash-up comparing Kavanaugh to other men such as the late Roger Ailes, Corey Lewandowski, Roy Moore, and Rob Porter because they too were firmly defended by President Trump as they faced their own allegations of sexual impropriety.

Bozell & Graham Column: Chuck Todd Badly Undermines Himself
September 4th, 2018 11:11 PM
Apparently, a weekly show on NBC and a nightly show on MSNBC weren't large enough platforms for Chuck Todd to complain about troublesome conservatives, so he's written an article for the liberal magazine The Atlantic titled “It’s Time for the Press to Stop Complaining – And to Start Fighting Back.” Mr. Todd should just retract this bungling mess.
