PBS Chief Paula Kerger Celebrates a Hectic Anniversary

27 May 2016 2:37 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paula Kerger’s 10th year as the CEO of PBS hasn’t been a quiet one. Already the public broadcaster said goodbye to one flagship series, “Downton Abbey,” and entered into shared custody of another, “Sesame Street.” It announced plans for a new channel devoted to children’s programming, and rolled out a new streaming-video platform to incentivize viewer donations. All this in a presidential-election year — a time when, recent history suggests, PBS is especially likely to be turned into a political football.

Against that backdrop, Kerger is tasked with guiding the public broadcaster through the same shifting media landscape that commercial television companies must navigate. But because of PBS’ unique business model and the challenges baked into it, Kerger, who joined PBS in 2006 and is the longest serving chief executive in its history, must innovate in unique ways — as she has had to do throughout her anniversary year.

After Trump's Latest Insults (Romney 'Walks Like a Penguin'), Obama at G-7 Summit Says World Leaders Are 'Rattled' by Gop Candidate

26 May 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

President Obama spoke out against Donald Trump at the G-7 summit in Japan on Thursday, saying that world leaders are shaken by the presumptive Gop nominee's campaign. "They're rattled by him and for good reason," Obama said. "Because a lot of the proposals that he's made display either ignorance of world affairs or a cavalier attitude or an interest in getting tweets and headlines instead of actually thinking through what is required to keep America safe." "They are surprised by him, not sure how to take some of his pronouncements," the president continued, adding that the world is watching the U. »

Donald Trump Makes Good on Pledge of $1M to Vets - Four Months Later

25 May 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After skipping a Gop debate in January and promising to raise money for veterans at a campaign rally instead, Donald Trump has finally come through on his pledge. At the rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on Jan. 28, Trump announced that he'd raised $6 million for the cause, including $1 million of his own money. However, Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, told The Washington Post last week that the total amount raised was actually around $4.5 million, blaming the disparity on unnamed big donors who allegedly backed out. As for the $1 million Trump promised to personally donate, The Washington Post reported that after a »

Mitt Romney Caves on Finding Anti-Trump Candidate

18 May 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Mitt Romney is giving up on the idea of finding someone — anyone — who could challenge Donald Trump’s presidential bid from the right. According to Yahoo News, the 2012 Gop nominee who lead the “Never Trump” effort doesn’t plan to run himself and is throwing in the towel on drafting a right-leaning alternative. “He thinks someone should run. That’s his role. That’s the beginning and end of it,” a Romney adviser told Yahoo. Another Romney ally told Yahoo that the former Massachusetts governor “is not now engaged in an effort to recruit a third-party candidate.” Also Read: Mitt Romney Slams Donald Trump. »

16 May 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Donald Trump has come under fire for his ongoing refusal to release his tax returns, with a blunt "It's none of your business."

Let's start with someone who has actually seen Trump's tax returns. Bloomberg View executive editor Timothy L. O'Brien viewed Trump's federal tax returns approximately 10 years ago, after the real estate mogul sued O'Brien for libel.

Former Facebook Workers: Company Censored Conservative Stories From Trending News Feed

Former Facebook employees who curated the site’s trending news feed claim the company has had a political bias against stories that might appeal to conservatives. In a report in Gizmodo, the former Facebook workers said colleagues would prevent stories about right-wing issues such as Cpac, Mitt Romney and Rand Paul from appearing in the influential section, despite the fact that such stories would organically trend among site users. “Depending on who was on shift, things would be blacklisted or trending,” the former employee told Gizmodo. “I’d come on shift and I’d discover that Cpac or Mitt Romney or Glenn Beck or. »

Mitt Romney, William Kristol Cooking Up a Third-Party Presidential Run for 2016?

8 May 2016 2:23 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Are Mitt Romney and William Kristol cooking up a plan for a third-party presidential run? The reason wouldn't be to win the presidential election in 2016 for this new third party, only to pull away enough votes from the presumptive Gop nominee Donald Trump to allow probable Democratic Party nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton to win. CNN reveals: "Mitt Romney met privately with leading conservative columnist William Kristol this week to discuss how best to get an independent candidate into the presidential race. The meeting on Thursday comes as anti-Donald Trump conservatives cling to hope that a viable third-party candidate could offer an alternative to the billionaire businessman and the likely Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton." Read the full story here from CNN. Establishment conservative Republicans appear to be having a difficult time understanding that too many of their own voters have turned against them and no longer support them. Romney in »

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Caught on Hot Mic Ogling Melania Trump

4 May 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

During the network’s coverage of Donald Trump’s Indiana primary victory speech, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was caught on a live microphone commenting on the appearance of Melania Trump, the Republican nominee’s wife.

“Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good,” Matthews said.

It appeared that the 70-year-old “Hardball” host wasn’t aware his comments were being broadcast. “I could watch that runway show,” he added.

Brian Williams, who was co-anchoring the coverage of Trump’s victory, quickly cut to a commercial break. Mnsbc declined to comment to Variety about the incident.

In his first television interview since dropping out of the 2016 race in February, Jeb Bush said he was "hopeful" that a contested convention would block Donald Trump from winning the Gop nomination. "There's a possibility that he won't get 50 percent on the first ballot," Bush told CNN's Jamie Gangel on Friday. "And if he doesn't do that, there are a whole lot of people who don't believe he's the proper guy." Asked whether he thinks the Republican party should rally around Trump if he does become the nominee, Bush, who has publicly endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, simply replied, "I »
