President Obama told attendees at a Democratic National Committee event Monday that it is a "cliche" to call America the greatest country on earth.
News coverage was swift and straightforward following revelations that the Justice Department secretly had obtained two months worth of phone records from The Associated Press, an action the wire service President and CEO Gary Pruitt deemed an "unprecedented intrusion" and "serious interference with AP's constitutional rights to gather and report news," in a letter to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. made public on Monday. Those are fighting words from Mr. Pruitt, the former CEO of news syndicate McClatchey Co., who has been on the job just over a year.
For all his legendary powers of persuasion, Bill Clinton never could quite sweet-talk Yasser Arafat and Ehud Barak into closing the deal on a final status peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority back in 2000. Looks like he whiffed again with Jimmy Page and and Robert Plant.
Arianna Huffington and Chris Christie will make a political odd couple later this month, as the Huffington Post founder brings the outspoken New Jersey governor as her guest for the annual White House Correspondents' dinner.
Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and his designer wife, Georgina Chapman, will be hosting an exclusive, $32,400-per-couple fundraising reception for President Barack Obama in their upscale Manhattan home on May 13.
Giant coffee table books, iPod Shuffles, signed letters from directors, even "Lincoln" turkey roasting pans. That's just some of the largesse doled out by the studios to voters for awards presented earlier this season _ each with the potential to influence the outcome of Hollywood's most important awards, Sunday night's Oscars.
How accurate is "Zero Dark Thirty"? Is "Lincoln" an epic of historical recreation or a high school history lesson? What did you think of "Django Unchained"? Can we get Anne Hathaway something to eat, already?
Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jon Bon Jovi, Hugh Jackman and other Golden Globe nominees celebrated their good fortune with a cup of tea.
“What we must have is a national debate about guns.” So goes the media cliche of the moment. Everybody on the left is saying it, but nobody there means a word of it. All these wayward worthies really want is an opportunity to put piety on parade (and take your guns).
The Rolling Stones will join the artists already booked for next week's televised Superstorm Sandy benefit show in New York City, which producers said Friday would be the most widely available live concert ever.
A federal jury on Tuesday convicted a man of illegally gaining access to AT&T's servers and stealing more than 120,000 email addresses of iPad users including New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and film mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The team behind "SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden" is saying the television movie was not recut to give a starring role to President Barack Obama two days before the presidential election.
Late night comics and the liberal press delight in either vilifying or parodying undecided voters, dismissing them as "boneheads" and "idiots." David Bossie — who spent a year interviewing undecided and disenchanted voters for his new documentary film "The Hope and the Change" — will have none of it, however.
President Obama's star is fading, even in Hollywood. With less than four weeks until the election, polls are moving in Mitt Romney's direction.
"SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden," a new film about the 2011 military raid that killed the terrorist mastermind, is set to debut on the National Geographic Channel on Nov. 4, two days before the election. The following day, the movie will be available on Netflix.
"There is no playbook, there is no campaigning," Weinstein said. "I have always said the most important thing is to get people to see the films and everything else is mostly fluff."
