Don Lemon Suggests Bill O’Reilly Come on His Show

19 April 2017 6:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

How should Bill O’Reilly handle his ouster from Fox News, as well as the sexual harassment scandal that surrounds him? Don Lemon has one suggestion — come on his show.

In an interview with Variety on Wednesday, the “CNN Tonight” host said O’Reilly should avoid “safe spaces” and do an interview that won’t be so one-sided. “I think he should do an interview with someone and not necessarily go to the favorable audience, to the safe space,” he said.

“He likes to talk about safe spaces,” Lemon continued. “I think he should go to someone who’s going to be fair — maybe like me — and do an interview to answer all of the charges and to clear his name if he absolutely believes that he’s not guilty of what he’s accused of.”

O’Reilly and Fox News has been enveloped in controversy since the beginning of the month, when »

Bill Cosby’s Children’s Book on Most-Banned List of 2016

10 April 2017 1:41 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Bill Cosby’s children’s book series “Little Bill” made the American Library Association’s list of the most-banned books of 2016. The book series, which debuted in 1997 and was later the basis for a children’s TV series, comes in at No. 9 on the list due to “criminal sexual allegations against the author,” according to the Ala. That sets it apart from the rest of the books listed, which are primarily challenged due to their content. “I would say we try to purchase books that appeal to a certain age group, that the books themselves were well reviewed and that they have. »

Happy 91st, Hugh Hefner: 11 Hollywood Stars Who Stripped Down for Playboy (Photos)

7 April 2017 3:09 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Kim Basinger, Jenny McCarthy, Charlize Theron, Madonna, Lindsay Lohan and Sharon Stone are just a few of the actresses who posed for the men’s magazine Playboy before it abandoned full nudity — and then quickly brought it back. In fact, the magazine became famous in large part by featuring Marilyn Monroe when she was one of the most famous, glamorous and celebrated of Hollywood stars. It’s clear Hugh Hefner has always had a close relationship with Hollywood — inviting both luminaries (and not-so-luminary celebrities) to visit his mansion. He has sold it, but continues to live there. Also Read: Bill Cosby's. »

Bill Cosby -- My Insurance Company Will Foot the Bill in Sexual Assault Cases

6 April 2017 7:55 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Bill Cosby just protected his pocketbook in a big way, after his insurance company agreed to foot the bill in 3 of his sexual assault cases. Cosby's insurance company, Aig, had initially said it would not pay his costs or any civil judgment, on grounds the policy excluded "sexual molestation, misconduct or harassment." A judge ruled Aig did indeed have a duty to defend Cosby, which apparently triggered the settlement. The insurance company has agreed »

How Donald Trump Helped Defuse the Bill O’Reilly Scandal (Opinion)

5 April 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s only fitting Donald Trump would speak out in support of Bill O’Reilly, as he did Wednesday. Because, were it not for the precedent set by this most unorthodox of presidents, the embattled Fox News anchor would be facing an entirely different set of circumstances than the predicament he finds himself in now.

That may seem a strange notion; after all, Trump doesn’t have anything to do with the sexual harassment allegations unearthed by The New York Times earlier this week that discovered $13 million in settlements paid over the years by O’Reilly’s employer to multiple women accusing him of serious misbehavior.

But there is a subtle but profound Trump-o’Reilly connection here, one that speaks to the tone the new president’s administration has set for the country’s cultural climate.

There was a time not too long ago when the allegation of serial sexual harassment was a guaranteed career killer, as »

President Trump Slammed for His Alleged Sexual Misconduct After He Defends Bill O’Reilly as a ‘Good Person’

5 April 2017 1:33 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

First, President Donald Trump declared April Sexual Assault Awareness month—to howls from those who recalled his own alleged record of sexual assault. Now, days later, it is Trump’s defense of Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly, amid revelations that it took $13 million to settle sexual harassment claims against the Fox News anchor by five women, that has critics choking.

“I don’t think Bill did anything wrong,” Trump told The New York Times on Wednesday, adding that O’Reilly “shouldn’t have settled.” “I think he’s a person I know well — he is a good person.”

D.L. Hughley Asks If Bill O’Reilly Is Being Targeted for His Wealth

4 April 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Is Bill O’Reilly — the scandal-plagued Fox News commentator who, along with Fox News, reportedly paid out $13 million in settlements to multiple women who’ve accused him of sexual harassment or inappropriate behavior — being targeted because of his deep pockets? That’s the question that actor and comedian D.L. Hughley put to the listeners of his radio show on Tuesday, after multiple sponsors cut ties with O’Reilly’s show. “We asked this about Bill Cosby, now we’ll ask about O’Reilly. Do you think he’s guilty or a rich man who’s become an easy target?” “The D.L. Hughley Show” tweeted Tuesday. »

I Wish Julie Roginsky Would Have Spoken Up Sooner About Roger Ailes

4 April 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Fox News has been in extremely hot water in the last week due to the sexual harassment claims against host Bill O’Reilly.  I already gave my take on that yesterday.  Now we’ve got new allegations coming from another correspondent, Julie Roginsky.    This one’s against Roger Ailes, who as you know had multiple women come out against him.  All jokes aside, this guy is starting to become the Bill Cosby of the news world. The new lawsuit against Ailes was brought by Fox’s Julie Roginsky and is notable because it accuses Fox’s current management of trying to cover up for Ailes.

The king of comedy has two standup specials, plus Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are taking another trip, this time en España

The last accusation you could level at Dave Chappelle’s two new standup specials for Netflix is that he has let the constraints of political correctness keep him from saying what’s on his mind. However, aside from the Bill Cosby and Caitlyn Jenner material, what really shines through is Chappelle’s effortless timing and technical excellence. Available now, Netflix

From VHS to VOD #2

24 March 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I can often spend hours upon hours trawling through iTunes looking for new movies to buy… Usually I’ll randomly come across a title I haven’t seen in years and use the “Cast & Crew” links to make my way down the rabbit hole to the more obscure side of Apple’s digital movie service.

Now whilst many will decry that iTunes is a terrible VOD service due to Apple’s desire to lock its audience to their platforms, if you have an Apple TV or iPad be aware – there are some truly obscure films hidden away in the depths of the vast collection of movies. Some of which have been made available in the UK for the first time since VHS and a Lot that have been added to the service in their original uncut form!
