Rebel Buzz: Fox News biopic, Tomi Lahren's surprising supporters, and Rosanne's season finale

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor


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.

You have been talking about the grandson in girl’s clothes since the show aired….a little fixated are you?!!!!!!

Change the topic from Islamofascism to girl’s clothes, how weird,,,,you brought it up in the first place.

I can’t imagine Roseanne supporting Islamofascism, I have a problem with it too!
Muslims are people; Islam is an ideology. All ideologies in a Western democracy are open to criticism.

- I’m sure that this movie about the Fox news women will be a wonderful bit of leftist propaganda where they project their own far left perversions onto Fox. They could get a decent opening weekend when far leftists show up in mass but it will quickly fizzle.

- Step 1) say it’s okay to punch a Nazi. Step 2) claim anyone you don’t like is a Nazi. Step 3) assault everyone you don’t like because you’ve decided they’re Nazis. Step 4) forget that you’re the one who’s acting like a Nazi. I hope that Tomi Lahren sues.

- Conservatives have been underserved by Hollywood & television. That’s why Rosanne is killing it in the ratings.

Weasel Jack, it’s you who is insisting Barry will go ahead with his life and Netflix deal, seeing as I don’t have a timeline for his prosecution, he just might squeeze in some banal episodes.
Maybe, Barry will escape to a country which doesn’t have an extradition order with the US and he can livestream from his new location.

Not making excuses, just saying if this treasonous b**tard decides to rush production…you may get your wish.

Your understanding of the US system is really at an elementary school level. Why would there be a rush to prosecute when the DOJ, FBI, CIA were infected with rogue personnel at the very top? Add to that, a judiciary will many Obama sympathizers. Clearing out these bad actors needs to happen first. These people were stupid….they didn’t think Hilary would lose….made lots of mistakes and the NSA and Military Intelligence have it all.
Msm didn’t think she would lose either….funny that!

Weasel Jack, we’ll see won’t we….even if Barry manages to rush something to production, will he get to finish it, will there be a season two? We’ll see.
You don’t seem to realize the seriousness of his crimes. Pretty typical of leftist regressives when it involves one of their own.

My guess is you are in full fantasy mode right now, “mock ruthlessly”.

Unlike you, I don’t belong to a cult.

Okay Jack, whatever you say. May I remind you, you other predictions haven’t panned out so well. Keep smiling, and, hold on to your Netflix fantasy.

Weasel Jack, your weasel words are ineffective…your phantom wife and friend (singular) laughing as you claim doesn’t affect my day to day life. You really have a projection problem #cluelessTorontian

BTW, you misquoted me about Barry and Gitmo, I didn’t say soon….I clearly said I didn’t know when this would happen. If you are going to sh*t post, get it straight would you! As I said, treason is serious business. Lots of funding in the Omnibus Bill for military tribunals…a win for Trump!

Ooops pardon me, should have posted : Charlize Theron looks too old!

Weasel Jack, you sure like to LOL like an adolescent high school girl. This must drive your friend crazy!
commented 2018-05-26 16:39:46 -0400
Charlize Theron is too old to play this role. Another Hollyweird offering which I will decline…. subject matter too moronic TGASA

Lunchtime warriors armed with a glass of water & loud potty mouth are weak and only highlight their membership in Lunatics of America aka Democratic Party!
