‘A Disgrace To Artists’: Kirstie Alley Slams Oscars’ ‘Dictatorial’ Diversity Quota

September 11, 2020 by

1

By Gabriel Hays ~ Look, another institution is hollowing itself out to comply with the demands, real or anticipated, of social justice drones. In this case, it’s a Hollywood institution, so conservatives will probably just shrug. But there are some media personalities who are not OK with it. Of course Hollywood can’t lecture about diversity […]

August 6, 2020 by

By Gabriel Hays ~ It’s not just conservatives who are hammering Hollywood’s love affair with Communist China. By reporting on an anti-Trump free speech non-profit group’s study, The Hollywood Reporter acknowledged that the apple of its journalistic eye has been in bed with Chinese government censors. According to THR and PEN America, Hollywood studios “self-censor” […]

June 4, 2020 by

By Gabriel Hays ~ The latest political initiative from Hollywood might be its most insane yet. Here’s the proposal from some of tinseltown’s brightest: How about we as a society decide to defund our police forces? Yeah, real stunning stuff. In support of the radical racial and social justice initiative Black Lives Matter, A-list celebrities […]

Hollywood Triggered By Trump’s Bible Reference: ‘Forced Himself on a Church’

June 3, 2020 by

5

By Gabriel Hays ~ It’s not surprising that the president’s invocation of God during violent protests in D.C. on June 1 didn’t fly with the Hollywood left. The Christian faith is an obvious impediment to their progressive ambitions.Trump’s walk to St. John’s Church and subsequent raising of the Bible amid nationwide riots as leftists raged […]

Never Trust Hollywood With History

January 5, 2020 by

2

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Hollywood loves taking apart conservatives. So when presented with the idea of men in the highest reaches of the conservative media sexually harassing women at the office, it was manna from heaven. You’ll not find a ripped-from-the-headlines TV dramatization of Harvey Weinstein’s predations. There’s no hellish-office movie on […]

God Takes A Beating On Television

September 15, 2019 by

0

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ It’s a fallacy to suggest that in the news media, business trumps politics. CNN and MSNBC’s dismal ratings are in direct proportion to their deliberate decision to embrace far-left anti-Trumpism. The same holds true for commercialized Hollywood, except in their case it’s not just anti-Trumpism that excites. The […]

Diversity Reigns At Oscars, Tantrums Continue

March 3, 2019 by

2

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ It’s amazing that ABC broadcast an overlong Academy Awards show where no one mocked Donald Trump by name. There were just a few snarky remarks about walls, but that’s pretty much it. But it’s equally bizarre that the Oscar for Best Picture went to Green Book – about […]

Cheney Haters Flop At The Golden Globes

January 13, 2019 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Anyone catching the television ads for the Dick Cheney-trashing movie Vice found them heavily promoting it with the surprising six Golden Globe nominations it received from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. That affirmation also became the “news hook” for press interviews with the director and the actors, seeking […]

Hollywood Gangs Up On Roger Ailes

December 16, 2018 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Talk-radio host and friend Chris Plante recently made an excellent point about Hollywood. As horrible new revelations of sexual misbehavior surface about CBS CEO Les Moonves, it’s highly unlikely anyone’s going to make a movie about him, or about Matt Lauer, or about Charlie Rose, and so on. […]

Liberals Upset At ‘Deep State’ Beliefs Could Blame… Hollywood

March 26, 2018 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ A new poll from Monmouth University found most Americans aren’t very familiar with the term “deep state.” But when the term is described as “a group of unelected government and military officials who secretly manipulate or direct national policy,” nearly three out of four (74%) say they believe this type of […]

Showtime Versus Christianity

December 17, 2017 by

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ The Golden Globe Award nominations have been announced, and once again, the Hollywood judges really know how to find the worst junk to honor. Two nominations went to stay-classy Showtime’s program called “SMILF,” for “single mother I’d like to f—.” The show’s lead actress is also its creator […]

‘War Machine’ Sheds Light On The Naiveté Of Nation-Building

July 7, 2017 by

0

By Dakota Wood ~ “War Machine,” a newly released film produced by Netflix, is a satirical skewering of the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan. It stars Brad Pitt as a very thinly veiled version of Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the senior commander of U.S./allied military operations in Afghanistan for a year, from June 2009 until June […]

Undercover At Hollywood’s Anti-Coal Movie

May 19, 2017 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ When it comes to pushing radical environmentalism, no one does it with more vigor than Hollywood. Such is the case with their latest gem, “From the Ashes,” which purports to showcase the evils of America’s use of coal to generate electricity. As we’ve done in the past, CFACT sent in an […]

Variety Film Critic ‘Shivers’ For New ‘Freedom-Fighting’ WashPost-Glorifying Movie

March 13, 2017 by

0

By Tim Graham ~ Variety film critic Owen Gleiberman sounded a little like Chris Matthews when he “felt a shiver of anticipation” at the new “Trump-timed” Steven Spielberg movie project, mythologizing The Washington Post in 1971 pushing to expose the “Pentagon Papers” to underline the “futility” of the Vietnam War, which Gleiberman proclaimed part of the “liberal […]

Hollywood Versus The ‘Fascist’ Election Result

January 15, 2017 by

0

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Critics of the Hollywood Left chuckled when Hillary Clinton lost the election. Those dramatic videos full of celebrity ardor for the Clintons flopped. Rarely has there been a more pronounced disconnect.  It turned to belly laughs when those celebrities responded by making more videos. First, the celebrity leftists […]

Not The Onion: AP Runs Fact-Check Piece On Trump Arguing Meryl Streep Is ‘Overrated’

January 10, 2017 by

2

By Curtis Houck ~ Behold, readers. Here is another reason why the fact-checking phenomenon is junk: On Monday afternoon, the Associated Press (AP) published a story by Mark Kennedy to “fact-check” President-elect Donald Trump’s opinion that far-left actress Meryl Streep is “overrated.” Kennedy’s piece naturally came the day after Streep’s tirade at the Golden Globes […]

“Martian,” Go Home!

October 21, 2015 by

By Edward Cline ~ Ridley Scott is a superb director. Most of his films are visually mesmerizing even if one doesn’t like their themes, epistemology, or metaphysics, or share their senses of life. You watch them because of his artistry.  He is a kind of cinematic Rembrandt: You may not care for the subject, but […]

CBS News Slams Rathergate Film: ‘It’s Astounding How Little Truth There Is In TRUTH’

October 9, 2015 by

By Tim Graham ~ Variety reports CBS News is hopping mad about the forthcoming Dan Rather-lionizing movie Truth. They hoped it “would come and go quickly in limited release. But [Cate] Blanchett is generating Oscar buzz as a best actress contender for her tour de force performance as [Mary Mapes,] the hard-charging producer swept up […]

Robert Redford Movie ‘Truth’ Lies About Rathergate

September 16, 2015 by

By Melissa Mullins ~ How’s this for a dose of irony? Dan Rather promoting a movie called Truth that is nothing but a bunch of lies. The former CBS anchorman was on hand this past Saturday at the Toronto Film Festival where he praised Robert Redford who stars as Rather in a film that depicted […]

Cultural Winners and Losers Of 2014

December 28, 2014 by

1

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Looking back at our popular culture in 2014, it appears that Hollywood’s power is on the wane. Politically, the leftist celebrities and the “Rock the Vote” gang couldn’t help dig the Democrats out of their rut. Even that paragon of permissiveness Sandra Fluke couldn’t exploit her Limbaugh-victim aura […]

Anti American Disinformation On Ebola And AIDS

October 31, 2014 by

0

By Cliff Kincaid ~ Stories that the Pentagon manufactured Ebola in a laboratory have been surfacing in a number of U.S. and foreign media outlets, helping to create even more of a panic over the spreading disease. A new variation of an old Soviet charge, it is designed to besmirch the reputation of the United […]

Is Global Warming A Theme Of ‘Interstellar’ Movie?

October 27, 2014 by

0

By P.J. Gladnick ~ Imagine if astronaut Dave of “2001: A Space Odyssey” returned to Earth as a star child in order to use his superior brain power to build better solar panels. It seems mighty narrow and would have trivialized Stanley Kubrick’s classic film. Well, something like that might be happening with another movie, […]

Hollywood Mocks Chastity, Makes Virginity A Vice

August 3, 2014 by

2

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Back in the 1950s, C.S. Lewis saw chastity as under attack with “all the contemporary propaganda for lust” that makes people “feel that the desires we are resisting are so ‘natural’, so ‘healthy’, and so reasonable, that it is almost perverse and abnormal to resist them.” You can […]

Anti-fracking fervor underscores dismissive attitudes toward working classes and poor families By Paul Driessen ~ Several Hollywood elites were recently caught red-handed on videotape, agreeing to take money from a Middle Eastern oil sheikh for another anti-fracking movie. Their actions were shameful, but they felt no shame – only anger at the folks who caught […]
