Bad PR Causes Johnny Depp to Tank at the Box Office

Johnny Depp has had a week no one would envy.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star has had to deal with the passing of his mother, the end of his marriage, allegations of physical abuse, and now a bomb at the box office.

Amber Heard, Depp’s wife of the past fifteen months, just filed for divorce in Los Angeles citing irreconcilable differences as grounds to end the marriage. Legal papers were filed three days after the death of Depp’s mother.

The Hollywood couple had met while filming the 2011 movie “The Rum Diary,” were married in a private ceremony in February of 2015, and have no children together.

Zuckerberg Meeting Damages Facebook Brand

Mark Zuckerberg just made a bad problem worse.

The Facebook founder recently held a public relations-oriented meeting with some of the nation’s leading conservative figures to address the bias that was revealed in the social media site’s Trending Topics section.

The meeting with the reported seventeen conservative notables was said to have lasted approximately one hour.

Despite the participants having been bound by confidentiality agreements and the gathering having been off-limits to the press, a surprising amount of information concerning the meeting has leaked out.

Movie Star Clooney Attacks Political Star Trump

Back in March of 2016, George Clooney slammed then-GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The left-handed swipe came in the form of an email pitch that was sent to supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“If you listen to the loudest voices out there today, you’d think we’re a country that hates Mexicans, hates Muslims, and thinks that committing war crimes is the best way to make America great again,” Clooney wrote.

The actor claimed that “the only thing that would prevent America from being great would be to empower these voices.”

Sanders Supporters May Gravitate toward Trump

Protesters recently took to the streets of the Los Angeles suburb of Monterey Park.

Contrary to what some may be thinking, the demonstration was not yet another attempt to block an appearance by GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. Rather, it was a protest that was aimed at disrupting a campaign stop by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Supporters of Clinton’s Democratic rival Bernie Sanders repeatedly interrupted the Democratic  frontrunner as she attempted to deliver a stump speech to her backers.

Protesters chanted, “She’s not with us,” forcing Clinton to abbreviate her speech to a mere 14 minutes.

Walking the D.C. Red Carpet at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Ever since the Obamas moved into the White House, the image and ambiance of Washington, D.C. has been transformed.

Apart from the policies put forth by the president that have altered the national landscape, the nation’s capital has slowly turned into Hollywood East.

It is not merely that the press has treated the First Family as if they were A-list movie stars, or that the president and his wife have appeared on more entertainment television programs than all of their predecessors combined, it is the manner in which Washington, D.C. has taken on the attributes of the entertainment capital of the world.

The Donald Trump-Prince Connection

The public may generally have been unaware that a nexus existed between Donald Trump and the late pop icon Prince; however, this certainly appears to be the case.

There are actually numerous links between the two famed individuals, each of their names having recently been brought up in the media and on the Internet following the unexpected passing of Prince.

Trump himself reacted to the death of beloved music artist by posting a tribute to him on the web.

The GOP front-runner surprised his Twitter followers by releasing a statement that read, “I met Prince on numerous occasions. He was an amazing talent and wonderful guy. He will be greatly missed!”

California Holds Golden Key for the Trump Campaign

Like a locomotive in the night, the headlights of the California primary are getting brighter and coming ever closer, bringing what will be a decisive conclusion to the 2016 Republican primary contest.

Despite all the machinations by the GOP establishment, the Golden State June 7 primary is likely to give Donald Trump enough delegates to place him either over the magic 1,237 number or close enough so that he can win the first round at the convention in Cleveland this July and secure the nomination for the presidency.

HBO Launches Cinematic Attack on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

HBO is about to debut a movie titled “Confirmation,” which looks to be an all-out effort to revise the historical record of the 1991 confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Kerry Washington, the lead actress on the hit television show “Scandal,” plays the role of Anita Hill, Wendell Pierce of HBO’s “The Wire” portrays Justice Thomas, and Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Hudson, Erika Christensen, Jeffrey Wright, Bill Irwin, and Eric Stonestreet appear in supporting roles.

The film ostensibly tells the story of the confirmation hearings that took place two-plus decades ago, during which Hill accused then-Supreme Court nominee Thomas of sexual harassment.

Cable Companies Benefit from Unpredictable Primaries

Cable news shows have been strategically placing digital countdown clocks in the corner of the television screen to let audiences know the exact time of an upcoming primary contest, debate, or town hall meeting.

The countdown clocks are being displayed by cable news channels for a very specific reason. It makes good business sense.

The unprecedented nature of the primary election season has contributed to sizable increases in revenues for the cable TV news outlets.

The unconventional campaigns of both GOP front-runner Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders have increased the news coverage of primary campaign stories, live rallies, town halls and speeches exponentially.

Bernie Sanders Slams Hillary for Clooney Fundraiser

The Bernie Sanders campaign has found a new wedge issue in the head to head contest with Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination: the massive amounts of cash that Hillary receives from Hollywood’s biggest bundlers and donors.

After the Sanders campaign derided the Vermont senator’s opponent for fundraisers that the Clinton campaign has scheduled, which feature George Clooney, Sanders himself appeared on CNN and said that bundlers such as Clooney represent “the problem with American politics.”

Sanders gave a nod to Clooney’s acting skills but then suggested that the use of Clooney for extravagant Hollywood fundraising activity is unseemly.
