31 July 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The sudden departure of Anthony Scaramucci from the White House staff threw America for a loop — perhaps no one more so than conservative commentary site The Federalist, which just published an opinion piece by senior contributor David Marcus titled, “Why Anthony Scaramucci Is The Man Trump And America Need.” The post went up roughly six hours before the White House communications director was fired after holding the position for only ten days, following Sean Spicer’s exit. In the article, Marcus argued that Scaramucci’s hire was a crushing blow against establishment Republicans, like Newt Gingrich and recently-ousted Wh Chief of Staff. »

Donald Trump Tweets Support for Gop Candidate in Closely Watched House Race – but Spells Her Name Wrong

20 June 2017 5:59 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

President Donald Trump voiced his support for Republican candidate Karen Handel in the Georgia special election — but he couldn’t get a handle on how to spell her name. 

Trump, 70, took to Twitter Monday to encourage voters to elect Handel in the race for the Georgia 6th Congressional District.

“Karen Handle’s opponent in #GA06 can’t even vote in the district he wants to represent….” the commander-in-chief wrote, incorrectly spelling the candidate’s surname.

Minutes later, he deleted the tweet and posted a new one with the correct spelling.

Ava DuVernay, Katie Couric Talk Tackling Big Social Issues in Documentary Form

15 June 2017 10:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The mass incarceration crisis for people of color. The revolution in understanding gender identity. 

Ava DuVernay and Katie Couric both gamely took on what Couric called “big honkin’ subjects” to explore in feature-length documentary form.

DuVernay earned an Oscar nomination and a slew of other plaudits for her study of discrimination in criminal justice and prisons in “13th,” which premiered on Netflix in September. Couric offered a sensitive and revealing look at the new thinking about gender identity in National Geographic TV’s “Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric,” which bowed in February and will be expanded to a multi-part series.

DuVernay and Couric sat down with Variety to talk about the determination and the curiosity that led them to tackle their respective docs, the craftsmanship that goes into exploring complicated subjects and the public’s new-found interest in heady non-fiction storytelling.

Gender Revolution” and “13th” both take on very far-reaching subjects. How »

Betsy DeVos Caps Day One as Education Secretary: ‘Now Where Do I Find the Pencils?’

9 February 2017 8:54 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Betsy DeVos‘ appointment as education secretary was a controversial one, with the wealthy Gop donor confirmed to the position by the Senate on Tuesday in a 51-50 vote — pushed in her favor by Vice President Mike Pence, who cast the historic, tie-breaking ballot.

But despite outrage from celebrities and Democratic politicians, DeVos is ready to get to work.

The 59-year-old mother of four tweeted a photo of herself in her office late Tuesday night, writing, “Day 1 on the job is done, but we’re only getting started.”

“Now where do I find the pencils?” she added, with a smile face. »

The reaction to Betsy DeVos‘ confirmation as education secretary on Tuesday was fast and mostly furious, with celebrities and Democratic politicians unleashing outrage on social media, and a sprinkling of supporters — including President Donald Trump and Jeb Bush — congratulating DeVos on her narrow win.

Despite a rare, all-night protest by Senate Democrats on Monday night that carried into Tuesday morning, DeVos was confirmed by Senate in a 51-50 vote, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a historic, tie-breaking ballot.

DeVos, a wealthy Gop donor, has been widely criticized for weeks for her multiple conflicts of interest and her apparent lack knowledge of basic education policy. »

’13th: A Conversation With Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay’ Is An Essential Companion to the Oscar-Nominated Documentary

1 February 2017 8:45 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ava DuVernay’s latest film, the Oscar-nominated documentary “13th,” was always meant to be readily available to a large section of movie lovers, thanks to the filmmaker’s free-wheeling production and distribution deal with streaming giant Netflix. Billed as something as a “secret” film, the Netflix deal allowed the “Selma” helmer to make her feature-length look at the American prison system with minimal intrusion over the course of nearly two years.

The documentary, which succinctly explains the links between systematic racism and America’s swelling prison system, was kept mostly under wraps until it was announced as the opening night film at the 2016 New York Film Festival, making it the first documentary to ever earn the distinction.

Just three months after that splashy bow, “13th” is an Oscar nominee for best documentary feature and, yes, is currently streaming on Netflix. But DuVernay and Netflix’s unique partnership has not stopped there, »
