Baby Driver, The Silent Man, and Wind River make our daily movie newsBaby Driver, The Silent Man, and Wind River make our daily movie newsZachary Dent5/25/2017 5:02:00 Pm

In today's daily movie news we have a couple clips and a new trailer coming at you!

Baby Driver dropped a new featurette this week in which Ansel Elgort introduces us to his character, Baby. This film is from Edgar Wright, the writer/director of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead. Enough said, right? It's about a young getaway driver (Elgort), who after being coerced into working for a crime boss, finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.

This feels like Drive but for teens! It also has a great cast including Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Lily James, and Jon Bernthal. Check out the clip below and see Baby Driver »

Donald Trump’s Watergate? Bob Woodward Says Journalists Need to ‘Quadruple’ Scrutiny After President Fired FBI Director

10 May 2017 9:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The word “Watergate” was on many minds on Wednesday as critics compared President Trump‘s abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey to the scandal that brought down former President Richard Nixon in 1972.

Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward — who along with colleague Carl Bernstein famously broke the story of the Nixon-sanctioned break-in at the Democratic campaign headquarters in the Watergate building — weighed in on the Watergate comparisons in an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

“Indeed there are comparisons,” he said Wednesday. “This is a remarkable moment. It’s not something to take lightly.”

Woodward cited “many, many inconsistencies” in »

President Trump Should Be Kissing the Media's Ass According to Carl Bernstein (Video)

1 May 2017 12:55 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_sbtghwfp"]] President Trump's weekend attack on the press was not only "venomous," but laughable according to legendary journalist Carl Bernstein ... who thinks Potus needs to show some gratitude. The guy who cracked Watergate took aim at Trump's presidency when we saw him Sunday in downtown D.C., the morning after Trump skipped the White House Correspondents' Dinner and ripped the "fake news" coverage of his administration. Bernstein, who was at the Whcd, believes the prez »

The Elephant in the Dining Room: Washington’s Media Elite Celebrate, Awkwardly, Without the President They Helped Create

29 April 2017 11:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nearly every minute of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was laced with desperation. Saturday night at the Washington Hilton, the journalists that comprise the White House Correspondents’ Association gathered to celebrate their industry — or more accurately, to defend it.

President Donald Trump, who is alternately both combative with and ingratiating to the press, became the first president in 36 years to not attend the annual dinner. (The last was President Ronald Reagan, who was recovering from a bullet wound sustained weeks earlier. He still called in to crack a joke or two.) Trump has the habit of calling the mainstream media “fake news,” “failing,” or the “enemy” of the American people — and at the same time, has proven to be incredibly sensitive to, and swayed by, press coverage of himself and his closest advisors.

Trump’s boycott of the night read as another example of his typical childish impetuosity — especially given that the jokes made about him by »

White House Correspondents’ Dinner 2017: Hasan Minhaj Eviscerates Donald Trump and Those Covering Him — Watch

29 April 2017 8:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

No president, no problem.

Hasan Minhaj took the stage Saturday night at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and delivered a model set for the annual event, even though the event itself was anything but ordinary. The “Daily Show” special correspondent delivered an eviscerating 25-minute speech, going after the usual targets, from the reporters in the room to the president and his staff, despite Donald Trump’s absence.

“I would say it’s an honor to be here, but that is an alternative fact,” Minhaj said. “No one one wanted to do this, so, of course, it landed in the hands of an immigrant — like it always does.”

How to Stream the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Online

29 April 2017 3:52 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner has long established itself as a cornerstone (albeit an increasingly glamorized one) of Washington’s commitment to upholding the tenets of the First Amendment and preserving the freedom of the press. The event, though initially devised as a means of honoring journalists from around the country, has grown to adopt the glitzy facets of a pretty standard high-profile award show — complete with droves of Hollywood celebrities, politicians, media outlets, and a highly-anticipated stand-up monologue.

And, for the first time in 36 years, the President will not be in attendance. President Trump and his entire White House staff announced that they’re going to pass up this year’s dinner, but made no mention as to why (although, considering the Trump admin’s pretty forthright crusade against the liberties of the nation’s media, perhaps they felt there was no need).

New York Times Reporter Apologizes for Calling Melania Trump a ‘Hooker’

14 February 2017 10:11 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The New York Times reporter who called Melania Trump a “hooker” at a private event on Sunday has apologized, saying he wants to “take ownership of a mistake” he made. Jacob Bernstein, the son of Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein and the late writer-director Nora Ephron, came forward on Tuesday to identify himself as the journalist who repeated what he called “unfounded rumors” about the first lady in a conversation with model-actress Emily Ratajkowski. “Speaking at a party in what I thought was a personal conversation, I nevertheless made a stupid remark about the first lady,” he wrote in a series of. »
