11 Shows That Aren’t About Trump — But Totally Were (Photos)

7 hours ago

It’s tough to avoid the current political climate thanks to daily headlines that feel straight out of a reality show. TV series don’t have to address a specific current event, but they can be inspiration for core themes concerning politics, feminism, ideology or any number of things. To put it simply, shows this year talked about President Donald Trump… even if they didn’t do it directly. “Supergirl” The CW show is blunt about its ties to feminism. However, “Supergirl” stepped up its game in Season 2 with not-so-subtle jabs at the Trump presidency and the conversation around it, »

Here’s Why 15 Sean Hannity Advertisers Say They Haven’t Dumped Him

8 hours ago

When news broke that several advertisers were withdrawing ads from Sean Hannity’s show this week, many in the media world wondered whether the Fox News host was headed for a Bill O’Reilly repeat. In April, O’Reilly, then the network’s most visible talent, was fired by Fox when advertisers fled his primetime show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” en masse after a sexual harassment scandal involving multiple reported victims became public. Hannity hasn’t been accused of sexual harassment, but he provoked a backlash this week over his continued peddling of a right-wing conspiracy theory surrounding the murder »

Washington Post: Jared Kushner Sought Back Channel With Russians… Say Russians

8 hours ago

Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in December that Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, asked to set up a “secret and secure communications channel” between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, according to a new report by The Washington Post Friday. The claim comes from intercepts of conversations between Russia’s ambassador and Moscow. The request was to help shield the transition team’s discussions from the public and authorities, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports. According to the Post, Kislyak told higher-ups in Moscow that Kushner suggested the idea during a meeting »

A Federal Court Just Called Trump a Bigot

9 hours ago

Judges don’t usually write opinions personally attacking the integrity of the president of the United States. But in a highly unusually decision this week, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit rebuked President Trump personally, ruling that he wrote a bigoted Muslim ban that was not in “good faith” and violates the First Amendment. The court, in a 10-3 decision, began its first paragraph saying that Trump’s executive order “drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination” towards Muslims.

Cannes, the glamorous festival, has seen some crazy PR stunts over the years, from Sacha Baron Cohen’s mankini to Blake Lively’s fake sharks. Faux “Terror Raid” to Promote Oraxy Guests at Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc got a surprise visit by men outfitted in militia-themed gear last year, approaching the hotel by boat. Later, it was revealed it was a publicity stunt for the Paris-based Oraxy, which describes itself as “the world’s first private global marketplace reserved exclusively for Uhnwi,” or Ultra High Net Worth Individuals.

‘You Were Never Really Here’ Cannes Review: Grim Joaquin Phoenix Puzzler Ends Competition

11 hours ago

More of a collection of accomplished filmmaking moments than a wholly satisfying film, “You Were Never Really Here” offers an unfamiliar spin on a well-known style. Adapting Jonathan Ames’ 2013 novella that itself was a sideways riff on the hardboiled detective genre, writer/director Lynne Ramsay picks up Ames’ slanted approach and moves it even further afield. Instead of subverting hardboiled structure – where a jaded old timer accepts a seemingly open and shut case, only to be ensnared in a wider web of corruption – Ramsay readily accepts it, but tells the recognizable tale with terse abstraction. Which is to say »

12 hours ago

Snap Inc. — the tech company that founded messaging app Snapchat  — continues to roll out its slate of original content with Friday’s release of the second episode of “Phone Swap,” the self-described “super awkward dating show.” The show is simple, but that’s why it works: Two young singles show up for a date, where they’re forced to exchange phones and then immediately go in separate directions. They take turns checking out what type of cringe-worthy content they can find, while the other person sits in a booth and comments on their discoveries. And despite the anxiety it caused me, »

Can ‘Game of Thrones’ Beer Dull the Pain of Season 7 Delay? (Video)

13 hours ago

Normally by this point in May, we’d be almost halfway through the latest season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Sadly, because winter has finally arrived in Westeros, production on the show was delayed in 2016 to allow for filming during actual snowy weather. Which means, of course, that “Game of Thrones” Season 7 won’t air until mid-July. Like many of you, we’re pretty sad about having to wait longer than usual for our Seven Kingdoms fix and desperate to fill the void with something, anything. Fortunately, “anything” turned out to be “Bend the Knee Golden Ale,” the latest beer from. »

How Trump’s Attacks on the Media Turned Into Literal Attacks on the Media

14 hours ago

Katy Tur felt the crowd turn. As Donald Trump scolded the NBC reporter from the stage, calling her “little Katy” because he didn’t like her coverage, the Trump supporters around her began to feel “like a large animal, angry and unchained.” The Secret Service felt the tension too: Agents took the unusual step of escorting her to her car. The December 2015 speech in Mount Pleasant, N.Y. was just a preview of things to come. Since Trump’s election, the attacks on reporters have gotten physical. On Thursday, Republican Greg Gianforte won a Montana congressional election despite being charged »
