EXCLUSIVE: I scooped yesterday that HBO had done a secret deal for an Untitled Roger Ailes Project being eecutive produced by Fox News rivals from MSNBC. Today I’ve received this email from HBO Films President Len Amato: “We recently decided not to pursue the Ailes project. It had become clear to us before even receiving a script that due to our company’s CNN affiliation the film could never be seen as objective.” Interesting, because today I’ve learned that none of the dealmakers have yet been informed byHBO that the [...]
EXCLUSIVE: HBO appears obsessed by GOP Conservatives. There have been movies about the 2000 Bush vs Gore election standoff and Sarah Palin and most recently a TV series featuring George W Bush’s severed head.

Roger Ailes, the combative conservative behind Fox News, is sounding strangely reasonable these days, going easy on top Democrats—even Hillary Clinton!—and subtly distancing himself from the inflammatory Glenn Beck.
When I spoke with him shortly after the publication of two scathing magazine profiles depicting the chairman as power mad, paranoid, and a GOP puppeteer, Ailes was in a strikingly upbeat mood. When the climate is [...]
At least that’s the conclusion one must draw from the fact Fox News is keeping her on the payroll.
In the last week, with no Donald Trump to obsess about, the media has returned to its ‘Palin for president’ speculation.
Spurred on by news that Palin has purchased a house in Arizona (also where daughter Bristol is attending school), an upcoming documentary that will premiere in primary hot state Iowa, [...]
EDITORS NOTE: Some language used may be offensive to some readers.
As much as CNN likes to tell the public and advertisers that it’s squarely in the sensible center between the partisan attacks of MSNBC and Fox News, the reality says otherwise.
