Donald Trump In, Roger Ailes Out in Historic Gop Reshuffle

21 July 2016 4:20 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The irony that the most powerful unelected figure in the Republican Party was eliminated, professionally speaking, on the very day that reality-show candidate Donald Trump triumphantly accepted the party’s nomination for president was lost on no one at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. As the news rippled across the outdoor news platforms and bars near the Quicken Loans Arena, media figures paid obeisance to the man whose power in the halls of conservatism was considered unimpeachable until just days ago. “His influence is enormous,” Carl Bernstein, the legendary investigative journalist and CNN commentator, told TheWrap.

CNN’s Carl Bernstein on Roger Ailes Exit: ‘I Don’t Think Anybody’s Salivating’

20 July 2016 8:07 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

CNN commentator Carl Bernstein said the imminent exit of rival Fox News chief Roger Ailes didn’t leave anyone at his network “salivating,” instead calling the news leader a “nefarious genius.” Legendary investigative journalist Bernstein told TheWrap, “Ailes is a nefarious genius. Probably the most influential non-office holding political figure of the last 20 years in America.” Bernstein spoke to TheWrap at one of CNN’s several broadcast centers at the Republican National Convention, this one beside the Quicken Loans arena in Cleveland, Ohio, where the evening speeches had already begun.

TCM Film Festival Day 1: This Fest is on Fire!

29 April 2016 7:29 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Anne Marie here, reporting what's hot at the Turner Classic Movies Film Festival.

Opening night of TCM Film Festival was on fire--or at least we thought it was. Halfway through the first film, the fire alarm in the Chinese Theater multiplex went off, sending cinephiles scurrying for the exits. Fortunately, it seems to have been a false alarm. After a few minutes of patient waiting, fans were allowed to retake their seats so the movies could resume.

Fire alarms aside, TCM rolled out the red carpet for a brand new restoration for the 40th Anniversary of All the President's Men, courtesy of Warner Bros. Classics. Four decades after Woodward and Bernstein originally exposed the Watergate Scandal, the movie feels more prescient than ever, especially considering TCM host Ben Mankiewicz's recent revelation that his father Frank Mankiewicz was on Nixon's enemies list. Ben Mankiewicz and Alec Baldwin introduced the movie »

Ted Cruz Names Carly Fiorina His Veep In Desperate Attempt To Insert Self Into Cable News Cycle

27 April 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Gop candidate Ted Cruz made a play to insert himself into the cable news cycle today, announcing former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as his running mate the morning after Donald Trump swept all five states holding primaries in this week’s Super Tuesday. “And then everybody’s going to play back Carly Fiorina saying how awful Ted Cruz is,” forecast CNN political commentator Carl Bernstein, who described Cruz as “desperate, truly desperate” after getting “thrashed last… »

"Wire" Creator Plans CIA Series "Ashes"

26 April 2016 6:54 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though "The Wire" creator David Simon's next project is the 1970s porn drama "The Deuce" starring James Franco, it seems the acclaimed TV showrunner already has another major project in the works.

Simon tells Variety he's working on an adaptation of Tim Weiner's Pulitzer Prize winning novel "Legacy Of Ashes" for both the BBC and HBO. The series will take a hard look at the institutional problems in the CIA, and how it weakens national security. Speaking about the series he says:

"[Writers] Ed Burns and Dan Fesperman have taken that. It's in turnaround at the BBC. They want to do the show. They acquired the scripts from HBO and they are doing the show. We are taking another pass at the scripts because they want us to add a certain amount of U.K. stuff. A certain amount of MI6 along with CIA.

David Simon Says CIA Saga 'Legacy Of Ashes' Might Be His Next Project

25 April 2016 12:57 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This spring, David Simon, the man behind "The Wire," "Homicide," and "Show Me A Hero" will get cracking on production of his '70s set porn drama "The Deuce," starring James Franco in dual roles. But Simon has much more brewing, among them, a drama set around Capitol Hill with famed journalist Carl Bernstein involved. However, what might be next on the docket is something different, a show that will peel back the layers of one of the most powerful organizations in the United States: the CIA. Chatting with Variety, Simon reveals he's working on an adaptation of the Pulitizer Prize winning book "Legacy Of Ashes" by Tim Weiner, and that it's actually the BBC taking the lead, with HBO essentially willing lend a hand for the stateside work involved in bringing the series to air. And the material is powerful stuff, with Weiner's book taking a hard look at »

Staring Down The 2016 TCM Classic Film Festival

24 April 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

I live in Los Angeles, and my residency here means that a lot of great film programming-- revival screenings, advance looks at upcoming releases and vital, fascinating glimpses at unheralded, unexpected cinema from around the world—is available to me on a week-by-week basis. But I’ve never been to Cannes. Toronto, Tribeca, New York, Venice, Berlin, Sundance, SXSW, these festivals are all events that I have yet to be lucky enough to attend, and I can reasonably expect that it’s probably going to stay that way for the foreseeable future. I never attended a film festival of any kind until I made my way to the outskirts of the Mojave Desert for the  Lone Pine Film Festival in 2006, which was its own kind of grand adventure, even if it wasn’t exactly one for bumping shoulders with critics, stars and fanatics on the French Riviera.

But since 2010 there »

"All The President's Men": Celebrating The 40th Anniversary Of The Landmark Film

9 April 2016 12:06 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

It was forty years ago today that director Alan J. Pakula's landmark ode to journalism, "All the President's Men", opened in movie theaters. It was, of course, based on the best-selling book by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, whose dogged investigation of a seemingly trivial break-in of Democratic Presidential candidate George McGovern's campaign HQ would turn the story into an international thriller that would ultimately bring down what Bernstein has called "the criminal" administration of President Richard M. Nixon. As with most scandals, the break-in itself was just the tip of the iceberg. By the time Nixon's embattled Presidency was over in August 1974, even Republicans had been calling for his head. Nixon was determined to face impeachment hearings. It fell to that symbol of conservatism, Sen. Barry Goldwater, to inform the President that the scope of the crimes committed during his administration would not be »

'All the President's Men': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Watergate Classic

8 April 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When "Spotlight" won Best Picture in February, many observers recalled the Academy Awards race of four decades ago, when Watergate saga "All the President's Men" was a top contender.

Both movies made heroes out of the dogged reporters who had uncovered earth-shaking scandals, and both films made the often tedious process of journalism into gripping drama without distorting it much. Indeed, until "Spotlight" came along, "All the President's Men" had been considered the best movie ever made about journalism throughout the 40 years since its release, on April 9, 1976.

Today, "All the President's Men" is remembered as one of the last landmark movies of Hollywood's 1970s renaissance, and a highlight in the careers of stars Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman. To celebrate the film's 40th anniversary, here are ten things you probably didn't know about "Atpm."

1. Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein were still busy investigating Watergate when Robert Redford »

What Nora Ephron's Son Jacob Bernstein Learned About His Late Mother While Making the Documentary Everything Is Copy

1 April 2016 6:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If anyone is perfectly equipped to make a moving and balanced documentary about trailblazing author-journalist-screenwriter-director Nora Ephron, it's her son, Jacob Bernstein. Not just because of the family connection, but because the first-time filmmaker is also a journalist who approached his subject with extreme care and objectivity. Everything Is Copy, now airing on HBO, is a 90-minute documentary named for the Sleepless in Seattle writer/director's life motto: that everything that happens in life, no matter good or bad, has the potential to become a great story.

Everything is Copy: Nora Ephron’s Journey in Writing About Her Life

18 March 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Heartburn. When Harry Met Sally… . Sleepless in Seattle. Julia & Julia.

None of these films would have been had Nora Ephron not wrote—or sometimes directed—them. Ephron wrote articles for the New York Post, essays for Esquire, scripts for television, and ended up writing several novels and film adaptations of those novels, all that were somehow based on her life. She had a confident and strong attitude that may have been perceived as snarky by some, but intelligent and witted by all. In the years nearing her death, she came to terms with what she had accomplished and did her best to let people know that she loved them, all the while trying to keep her illness a secret from them.

To honor her and her work, her son Jacob Bernstein made Everything is Copy, an HBO documentary that will premiere March 21. The documentary features a number of people prominent in Ephron’s work, »

Jacob Bernstein Talks About Telling His Mother’s Story at the Premiere of Nora Ephron Documentary

15 March 2016 1:24 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A few months after essayist and screenwriter Nora Ephron died of leukemia in 2012, her son, New York Times writer Jacob Bernstein, was doing a profile on documentary filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland. She’d recently finished the film “Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel,” about the well-known fashion editor. When he asked her what her next project was, she said she was considering doing a film on the art collector Peggy Guggenheim, but mentioned there was one other project she might “put in front of that.”

“What’s that?,” Bernstein remembered asking her. “And she said ‘Nora Ephron.’

“And I said, ‘Well, I think there might be someone in front of you.’ ”

At last night’s New York premiere at the Museum of Modern Art of Bernstein’s film “Everything Is CopyNora Ephron: Scripted & Unscripted,” the writer-turned-filmmaker told Variety that he knew he had to get to work »

Why I Switched My Support From Hillary Clinton to Bernie Sanders (Guest Blog)

6 February 2016 2:47 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Hillary Clinton says that Bernie Sanders is running an artful smear and using false innuendo because she accepted huge fees from Goldman Sachs for speaking engagements. “I’m looking into it,” Hillary says when asked to produce the transcripts of her speeches and to justify her accepting super Pac funding largely from Wall Street. Hillary’s stall only makes her appear to be hiding something. On CNN, even staunch Hillary supporter and biographer Carl Bernstein implored Hillary to produce the transcripts. After Bernie called attention to Hillary’s self-serving interests, she cancelled another paid speaking engagement at a large Wall Street firm. »
