Norah O'Donnell, Gayle King Address 'Deeply Disturbing' Charlie Rose Allegations: 'He Does Not Get a Pass'
Following Charlie Rose‘s suspension from CBS and PBS for alleged sexual harassment, his CBS This Morning co-anchors are standing with the women who have spoken out against him.

On Tuesday’s edition of the morning news program, co-anchors Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King were solemn as they addressed a Monday report from The Washington Post, in which eight women came forward with similar stories about Rose, detailing how the veteran newsman made sexually inappropriate phone calls, exposed himself and groped women without their permission.

Though O’Donnell and King were clearly still reeling from the news about their colleague,

‘Fox & Friends’ Corrects James Comey Report That Donald Trump Plugged On Twitter

Fox News Channel’s morning show Fox & Friends on Tuesday issued an on-air correction to its Monday report that former FBI director James Comey had given top-secret information to a friend. The inaccurate report was widely disseminated, thanks to the show’s biggest fan, President Donald Trump, who had tweeted, “James Comey leaked Classified Information to the media. That is so illegal!" (The all-caps bit is his.) F&F‘s report had claimed Comey leaked classified information…

Megyn Kelly Dropped as Sandy Hook Organization Gala Host Over Alex Jones Interview

Megyn Kelly Dropped as Sandy Hook Organization Gala Host Over Alex Jones Interview
Megyn Kelly’s coming interview with web-video conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is causing the anchor another headache.

After word surfaced Monday that J.P. Morgan Chase does not want its advertising associated with a coming “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” broadcast in which the star anchor will interview Jones, a nonprofit gun violence prevention group that has strong ties to the 2012 shooting in Newtown, Conn., has asked her not to appear at its annual gala. Among the specious theories Jones has promoted is that the Newtown shootings were a hoax.

Sandy Hook Promise, a nonprofit gun violence prevention group founded by families of the Newtown shooting victims, said Kelly had agreed that she will no longer host the organization’s annual Promise Champions Gala on Wednesday, June 14th, in Washington D.C. The group said in a statement that the “decision was spurred by NBC’s planned broadcast of Kelly’s interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who

Angry America Makes Madison Avenue Re-Think Megyn Kelly, Shakespeare and More

When NBC News announced earlier this year that it lured Megyn Kelly from Fox News Channel, it was counting on the star anchor to draw attention. She’s delivering — though perhaps not in the way executives had hoped.

The chief marketing officer of JPMorgan Chase, Kristin Lemkau, tweeted Monday night that she was “repulsed” by a report scheduled to run this weekend on “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly” in which the anchor is slated to interview Alex Jones, a self-styled provocateur who is known for spreading dubious theories about national events. NBC News teased the segment this past weekend during the second broadcast of Kelly’s newsmagazine, which launched earlier in June. A person familiar with the matter confirmed a Monday report in the Wall Street Journal saying JPMorgan requested that any digital ads or local TV ads that could appear adjacent to the next “Sunday Night” broadcast be removed.

Rupert Murdoch’s Billion-Dollar Headache: Who Can Replace Roger Ailes at Fox News?

Rupert Murdoch has over the years grappled with many formidable challenges at his companies, like the decline of “American Idol” at Fox, or a phone-hacking scandal in London that forced the shuttering of his newspaper News of the World. Now he must solve a problem with considerable stakes: How will Fox News Channel operate if the man who built it is no longer there?

Fox News Channel is believed to be the most profitable asset in Murdoch’s wide-ranging empire, which also includes the Fox broadcast network and the massive Sky satellite service. People who know the executive say he believes nothing is more important to his legacy than Fox News, which has grown into the nation’s most-watched cable-news outlet after fighting for its launch in 1996.

Fox News Chief Roger Ailes is in the cross-hairs of a sexual-harassment suit filed earlier this month by Gretchen Carlson, an anchor whose contract wasn’t renewed in June. A

Intl Box Office Final: No. 1 Bragging Rights In China Too Close To Call As ‘Storm,’ ‘Expendables 3′ And ‘Apes’ Fight It Out

Intl Box Office Final: No. 1 Bragging Rights In China Too Close To Call As ‘Storm,’ ‘Expendables 3′ And ‘Apes’ Fight It Out
4th Update, Monday, 2:43 Pm Pt: Who was No. 1 this weekend in China? It’s just not clear. Although Warner Bros reported $7.7M this afternoon for Into The Storm, Fox reported $7.64M for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and it looks like Expendables 3 ended up with $7.5M (according to Rentrak). But China reporting on box office is always a bit sketchy and numbers tend to fluctuate, which may be why another final total for Into The Storm shows it pulled in only $7.16M. Warners is sticking by its $7.7M number (which includes previews). So, to be fair to both parties, it’s really too close to call.

Final grosses are in for Guardians Of The Galaxy and other films including The Maze Runner (which bows in the states next weekend), The Boxtrolls (which won’t bow until September 26 in the U.S.), Dolphin Tale 2, Lucy, Finding Fanny (which

Analyst: Pay TV Industry to Lose 200,000 Subscribers in 2012

Analyst: Pay TV Industry to Lose 200,000 Subscribers in 2012
Georg Szalai

New York - "It's About Cord-Avoiders and Cord-Nevers, Not Cord-Cutters." That's how Credit Suisse analyst Stefan Anninger summarized continuing weak pay TV subscriber trends in a Monday report that he compiled with several colleagues. Following third-quarter trends that were nearly unchanged, he now expects the multi-channel TV universe to contract by around 200,000 subscribers in 2012 instead of the gain of 250,000 that he had previously forecast. "We are not sounding the cord-cutting alarm. And we do not expect the pay TV universe subscribers “to fall off a cliff”
