NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ Plans Documentary Film Festival (Exclusive)

2 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If Chuck Todd has his way, NBC’s “Meet the Press” will be as known for political documentaries within five years as it is for snaring exclusive interviews with senators and Cabinet members.

The venerable Sunday public-affairs mainstay is joining forces with the American Film Institute for a film festival to be held in November in Washington D.C. Submissions for what is expected to be a slate of seven short-length documentary films are now being accepted. It’s a surprising extension of a TV mainstay that is in the midst of its 70th year on the air.

“’Meet the Press’’ is the long-form of TV-news programs,” said the seemingly ubiquitous political-news anchor, holding forth from a makeshift office Tuesday in NBC’s New York headquarters. “Why should we not be the place to do this?”

He’s not trying to compete with places like Vice Media or CNN, both of which have gained notice in recent »

29 July 2017 5:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Chelsea Handler played to the crowd Saturday at Politicon, bashing President Donald Trump in two separate appearances.

"He doesn't have a value system," she said to CNN's Jake Tapper onstage. "He's not interested in the American people. He lies constantly. He's also unstable, and I believe he has syphilis." (Tapper protested that last declaration).

Handler, who has an eponymous show on Netflix, said she's not interested in playing it safe and pulling punches, even if it means potentially losing pro-Trump viewers. "I can't worry about the people I'm ostracizing," she said. "Nobody's going to like you all the time."

Sean Hannity Feuds with CNN’s Jake Tapper Over Fox Host’s Award Confusion

21 July 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sean Hannity will no longer receive the conservative Media Research Center’s William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence and the Fox News host landed in a Twitter feud with CNN’s Jake Tapper over the situation. The award’s namesake Buckley, who founded the National Review, died in 2008. His son, best-selling author Christopher Buckley, “expressed great dismay,” that the award would go to Hannity, according to Tapper. “Giving an award in his name to Hannity — a pugnacious talk radio host who has shared conspiracy theories on his popular cable news show — had caused hand wringing among some conservatives,” Tapper wrote. »
