You’ll Never Guess the Most-Watched Presidential Debate in History (Chart)

13 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s been 47 months and four days since we’ve last witnessed a presidential debate — and Monday’s kickoff to the three primetime events can’t come fast enough for cable news networks. Back on Oct. 22, 2012 — the last one — Barack Obama and Mitt Romney went toe-to-toe to the tune(-in) of 59.2 million total viewers. That’s a ton of eyeballs, but it was actually the lowest-rated of their three go-arounds. Expect Donald Trump-Hillary Clinton to put that figure to shame right away, boosted by the unusually high potential trainwreck factor. Four years ago, the debates were simulcast on »

Harvey Weinstein: Trump "appeals to the worst in us"

22 September 2016 3:06 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Harvey Weinstein talked Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton at the 12th Zurich Film Festival.

“It’s a tough time for America right now, and we’ve just got to work hard and we’ve got to win [for Clinton],” Harvey Weinstein told press on the first day of the Zurich Film Festival, where his awards hopeful Lion got the event underway.

“We’re living in a tough time. I just saw CNN showing scenes of Charlotte, North Carolina, that look like The Battle Of Algiers,” Weinstein said of the city that has seen widespread protests since a police officer shot and killed an African-American man on Tuesday.

Talk turned from Oscar voters to American voters as fervent democrat Weinstein, appearing in Switzerland for the European premiere of the Garth Davis directed drama, was asked if he’d move to Canada if Donald Trump were elected Us president.

Advertisers Flock to Donald Trump-Hillary Clinton Presidential Debates

22 September 2016 6:32 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump aren’t the only candidates in the midst of an intense campaign.

On Monday night, as those two political operatives offer points and counter-points in the first of a series of debates between the two presidential hopefuls, web-domain service GoDaddy.com will launch an election-themed salvo of its own. In spots set to run during pre-debate coverage on CNN and post-event analysis on CBS and Fox News Channel, a person with the face of the company’s “GoDaddy Guy” will make the case to an assemblage of patriotic Americans that they are free to use the company’s services to turn their own ideas into reality. “There is no other candidate that’s more affordable,” the character says in the spot.

“This election cycle is expected to draw unprecedented audiences for the debates,” said Barb Rechterman, GoDaddy’s chief marketing officer, in an interview. “It’s a welcome opportunity.” A »

Joss Whedon Assembles ‘Avengers’ for Star-Studded Anti-Trump Get-Out-the-Vote PSA

21 September 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Writer-director Joss Whedon unveiled the first of a series of get-out-the-vote videos on Wednesday that not only implores people to get to the polls on Nov. 8, but also warns of the consequences of electing a certain candidate.

Donald Trump is not named, but one of the stars featured in the spot, Don Cheadle, refers to a “racist abusive coward who could permanently damage the fabric of our society.”

Martin Sheen says, “We cannot pretend both sides are equally unfavorable.” He’s echoing a sentiment expressed by many Hillary Clinton supporters that the media has been engaging in a “false equivalence” in covering both candidates.

Others in the video include Mark Ruffalo, Keegan-Michael Key, James Franco, Julianne Moore, Leslie Odom, and Neil Patrick Harris. Whedon also waded into the 2012 campaign, creating a video that irreverently warned of the “zombie apocalypse” should Mitt Romney be elected. This video is also an irreverent riff on the overly earnest celebrity PSA »

Republican Meg Whitman Puts Eye-Popping Cash Donation Behind Her Endorsement of Hillary Clinton

24 August 2016 8:50 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Hillary Clinton is getting more than just an endorsement from prominent Republican fundraiser Meg Whitman. Whitman, the CEO of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and a one-time Republican California gubernatorial candidate, paid $50,000 to attend a fundraising dinner for Clinton at the home of Univision owner Haim Saban on Tuesday night, according to CNN. Whitman announced earlier this month that she was supporting the Democratic nominee over her Republican rival Donald Trump, in what CNN called "one of the highest-profile Republican defections." At the time, Whitman also revealed plans to make a "substantial" contribution to Clinton's campaign to help ensure that Trump doesn't win the White House this fall. »

In New CNN Documentary, Gloria Borger Talks to the Men Who Didn’t Win The Presidency

23 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cable-news networks spend hours of their schedule analyzing the latest moves and actions of the President of the United States. CNN, for at least a little while, will devote time to the people who ran for the office, but lost.

CNN will debut “Almost President: The Agony of Defeat” on Wednesday, August 31 at 9 p.m. Et. In the documentary special, CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger will present interviews with Mitt Romney, John McCain, Michael Dukakis and Walter Mondale and examine their years of working toward snaring their party’s nomination only to find the storm of attention around them dissipating in almost a single moment.

“It’s a hard thing to get over,” said Borger, in an interview. She said she was inspired to tackle the project by a photograph of Republican candidate Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, making a trip to Costco just weeks after the conclusion of his failed bid to oust President Barack Obama »

John Oliver Asks Donald Trump to 'Drop Out,' Become 'Legend'

22 August 2016 12:41 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

With Donald Trump struggling in the polls, John Oliver sees three options for the controversial Gop nominee: He can eventually lose – a "disastrous" option since "his entire brand is built around not doing that." He can eventually win – an even worse outcome because that would involve "living in government housing, conversing with fully clothed women and traveling in a plane that doesn't even have his name on it." This leaves what Oliver considers a more noble, revolutionary third option: dropping out.

On Sunday's Last Week Tonight, the comedian presented his unorthodox case directly to Trump, »

A film portrait of James Foley: ‘Jim was a kid who loved adventure’

21 August 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Two years after the shocking murder of photojournalist James Foley by Islamic State, an intimate documentary by his childhood friend aims to reclaim the man

To most of the world, the place where James Foley spent his childhood must look about as good as it gets: a clapboard house with a large garden in a small town next to a beautiful lake. Visualise the American dream and this is it, pretty much. Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, where Foley grew up in a close-knit family of five siblings, is an affluent corner of a well-off state in the world’s most advanced industrial economy. The worst thing you can say about the place is that it’s where Mitt Romney goes on holiday.

This was where James Foley started his life. And on 19 August 2014, the world found out where and how it ended via a video posted on YouTube entitled “A Message to America”. Foley, »
