Entertainment Weekly reports that a new movie has been greenlit that highlights the women of Fox News ,as well as following the life and career of Fox News' former chairman and CEO, Roger Ailes.
Actress Charlize Theron is set to play former Fox News personality Megyn Kelly, who left her primetime slot at the network upon securing a multi-year deal with NBC.
Roger Ailes resigned from Fox News in 2016 after a sexual and workplace harassment scandal shook the network. The impetus for the downward spiral began when former host, Gretchen Carlson, filed a $20 million sexual harassment lawsuit against Ailes.
(For what it's worth, I've come into contact with hundreds of people at the network while doing dozens of segments on their network and I have never felt harassed, belittled or otherwise treated with anything other than professionalism and respect.)
I think this movie will bomb. If Americans aren’t inclined to go to theaters for other non-political movies, why on earth will they go to the movies to see what’s likely to be a devilish portrayal of some of their favorite Fox News personalities?
Conservative firebrand Tomi Lahren got a shower she didn't ask for, courtesy of a stranger at a restaurant in Minneapolis.
She and her mother stopped for brunch at Union Restaurant in downtown Minneapolis. Upon leaving the restaurant, a table of patrons proceeded to yell obscenities at her and then throw a drink at her, which consequently hit her mother as well.
While many people praised the hecklers saying she deserved it, a great deal of support also poured in for her, with some notable surprises.
I hope these hecklers realized the repercussions of their actions are precisely the opposite of what they likely hoped for.
In network television news, Roseanne went out with a bang!
The ninth and final episode of this season brought in 10.3 million viewers and a 2.4 rating. In the key 18-49 demographic, the show beat out the finales of many other programs.
This final episode tackled the issues of illegal immigrants, unemployment and sky-rocketing healthcare costs.
The allure of Roseanne and the catalyst for its success had a lot to do with middle America's exhaustion of entertainment and news media's constant attacks on, not only the President, but the "basket of deplorables" — the people who suffered most under rising taxes and unemployment coupled with rising healthcare costs.
That is why Roseanne was such a success this season, why it got picked up for another season, and why it will continue to do well as a beacon of normalcy in a sea of progressive political entertainment propaganda.
