Colbert`s One-sided Comedy Puts CBS in a Late-night Ratings Rut

After David Letterman announced back in 2014 that he was retiring from the late-night stage, CBS made the decision not to go with a traditional host such as Craig Ferguson, former host of “The Late Late Show.” Instead the network chose to tap Stephen Colbert, a Comedy Central host who had built his prior show on a fictitious character, one that was, in fact, a spoof political caricature of a conservative.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Political Opining May Cost Her at the Box Office

Jennifer Lawrence may have alienated a significant portion of her fans and done damage to her brand as well with some ill-advised remarks that she made during a recent interview with Vogue.

The “Hunger Games” star just kicked off a promotional media junket for two upcoming movies in which she holds starring roles.

The films being released in the next two months are a supposed final sequel in the “Hunger Games” franchise, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2,” and another of director David O. Russell’s award-seeking vehicles, “Joy.”

Donald Trump`s SNL Triumph

Despite the protests, petitions, and pressure placed on the NBC network, Donald Trump maintained his trademark focus throughout the attacks and ultimately took to the stage as host of the most recent episode of television’s iconic comedy show, “Saturday Night Live.”

Thanks to Trump’s appearance, SNL achieved record ratings and the GOP presidential frontrunner enhanced his image in the process, further strengthening his candidacy.

Hillary`s Private Email Address in Ben Affleck`s Hands

It is now evident that Vermont socialist senator Bernie Sanders’s utterance at the first Democratic primary debate about the American people being “sick and tired of hearing about Hillary’s [expletive] emails” was ineffective in its apparent effort to deflect attention away from the pertinent election related issue.

A significant portion of the nation’s voting populace is indeed sick over how long the process of obtaining information is taking and tired of how the mainstream media continues to carry water for the former secretary of state with regard to her evasive tactics.

Two Smoking Guns

Following the completion of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s long-awaited testimony in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, mainstream media outlets dutifully went out and trumpeted Clinton’s carefully crafted appearance. Evidently, there was at the same time a deliberate effort to dismiss one of the most highly significant news stories and to continue with the agenda of getting the current consensus Democrat elected.

Those in society who remember when the importance of the First Amendment now find themselves in the unexpected position of having contempt for a media they once esteemed. The negative perspective has been precipitated in part by the intentional non-reporting of certain news stories and the purposeful shaping of select others.

Global Warming Leftists Seek to Criminalize Criticism

In a society where speech is suppressed, truth is the prime casualty.  Dragged along in the fatal process are cognition, logic, and creativity.

This is exactly what has been going on in our society for far too long with an insidious incremental smothering of free speech. Now we find ourselves at a tipping point that promises to inexorably alter our First Amendment rights, and the response from leaders thus far, as well as the public at large, appears to be woefully insufficient.

Donald Trump Gets Legal Threat from Steven Tyler

Most big name music stars are not exactly fans of the Republican Party. As a matter of fact, several of them, including Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Tom Petty, and David Byrne, among others, have used the threat of legal action to stop Republican candidates and GOP office holders from using their songs.

During the 2008 presidential election season, Browne, Foo Fighters, and John Mellencamp all demanded that Republican presidential candidate John McCain stop utilizing their musical compositions.

The latest celebrity to employ this tactic and halt the use by a Republican of a musical work involves a tune that is being played at campaign events by presidential candidate and current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

`SNL` Sells the Softer Side of Hillary

Hillary Clinton’s campaign managers have been attempting to soften the former secretary of state’s image by engaging in an “authenticity tour,” complete with appearances by Hillary on several entertainment shows, most recently in a sketch on “Saturday Night Live.”

In the YouTube world in which we all now reside, whether a candidate for president appears to be likable, particularly on television, is of paramount importance to that individual’s ultimate electoral success.

All of the chatter about Hillary appearing to be stiff and scripted, combined with her falling poll numbers, email scandals, and challenges from Bernie Sanders and others, have caused the presumed Democratic frontrunner to try and convince potential supporters that she is genuine.

Biden Backers Emerge in Hollywood

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently made a cash stop at the Hollywood ATM via a $2,700 per ticket fundraiser, which was held at the home of Lionsgate co-chairman Rob Friedman.

Interestingly, Vice President Joe Biden appeared that very same weekend at a celebrity-draped gala on global inequality, which took place at New York City’s Central Park.

At the Global Citizen Festival, Biden and First Lady Michelle Obama joined a long list of notables, which included musicians Beyonce, Pearl Jam, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, and Bono, actors  Leonardo DiCaprio,  Hugh Jackman,  Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde, and Salma Hayek, and technology magnates Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.

GOP Establishment`s Third Party Trial Balloon

The Republican establishment appears to be having an extremely difficult time trying to figure out how to best deal with GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump,

His business success, coupled with his fourteen seasons on a hit television show that honed his brand as a solid decision maker, is part of the uniqueness that Trump has been bringing to the political world.

Despite numerous attempts from various sources to thwart his campaign, Trump holds the top spot in a majority of the polls. This is throwing the elite political class, which includes high-powered politicians, major GOP donors, and a plethora of media figures, into a panic.
