Ron Artest on ‘Dancing With The Stars?’ Depends on Pictures of His You Know What

July 31st, 2011 No comments

It got Anthony Weiner in hot water, so hot that he now has to spend all of his time with his pregnant wife.  Ever been around a pregnant woman?  Oh he right now is regretting the move he made by sending a picture of his pee pee to a female which pretty much ended his political career.

Ron Artest

But can Ron Artest, the former bad boy of the NBA, get himself out of this current mess and end up on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars?  Oh I dunno.

Ron Artest is chatting around town that he is in conversation with producers of Dancing With The Stars to be part of next season’s run of the series.  And he’s pretty psyched about his possible integration in the show.  Now the issue.

Um, there’s always an issue with Ron Artest.

There’s a story floating around the internet, or should we say a picture, that apparently is the same type of content that ended the slimy life of Anthony Weiner.  Ron Artest met a woman on Twitter (that damn Twitter!) and began a text and text back relationship with the woman.  When she turned Ron Artest down for a meetup to do the wild thing, the Los Angeles Laker forward decided he would send a picture of his pee pee to the woman.

She of course sent it to Deadspin and the mess is on!

But this is Ron Artest and most of us, knowing Ron Artest, would say who cares.

But this is the ABC Television Network and Walt Disney’s people don’t play that mess.  C’mon, we’re talking about Mickey Mouse here, Mickey Mouse.

And Artest is not married, yet will be marrying his ex-wife again.  “A nice big wedding,” says his ex-wife, soon to be wife again Kimsha.

Ron may get a pass on this one because, well because he’s Ron Artest.  But let me repeat once again, to all my male brethren, you cannot, cannot, cannot send women texts of your pee pee and not expect them to sell it.  Hell we might buy it, so stop, stop please!!!

Mark Wahlberg Says “I would do it,” When Asked About ‘Entourage’ the Movie

July 31st, 2011 No comments

And he just may have to.  Sex in The City was a monster hit for the initial movie and did not fare as well during round two of that former HBO series that is now in syndication.  But can Entourage follow the same success in the first go round of a movie on the big screen?

According to Mark Wahlberg, the executive producer of the HBO series which is now in the final run of the show, says “if I had to finance it myself, I would do it,” when asked about funding the effort.  People “want to go on a journey with these guys,” said Wahlberg at the Television Critics Awards Press Tour.  And he’s really drinking the Kool Aid about the show saying “I certainly hope this has a chance.”

Next steps are for Walhberg and the show’s creator Doug Elin to work on a script to move toward attaining outside financing.  “Hopefully we’ll come up with an idea and make it happen,” said Elin.

CBS2 News, Chicago’s WBBM TV an Embarrassment to Television Journalism (Video)

July 31st, 2011 No comments

You may have thought these days were past us but clearly they are not.  A TV news crew using racial fear mongering to enhance a story that was a complete lie. When people say that local TV news stinks this is an example.

Most times when I tell people I worked for CBS for seven years of my career, it’s a proud mention.  I probably would not be where I am had it not been for my days at CBS.  After reading this story, well this is one of those days where the mention of CBS and the call letters of WBBM Television in Chicago sicken me.

WBBM Television news is clearly in the toilet, sent there by whomever is running that department of that formerly fine TV station.  The news director and everyone involved in this incident that you will see in the video should be removed and banned from ever managing or broadcasting news ever again.

Yeah I thought this type of human being no longer existed.  Well clearly, once again, we see and example of the mediocrity of America.  Using a child to harbor racial insensitivity in Chicago, where if you look at crime statistics in that city, it’s not really needed.

WBBM is CBS2 in Chicago.  And recently did a news broadcast about a drive by shooting in a local neighborhood and broadcast a segment which the TV station has now apologized.  First apology should be for the person who interviewed a four year old boy.  What TV news stench would interview a four year old boy?  Then the tragedy is not even the drive by shooting.  The tragedy is how some idiot in the editing bay misconstrued the content of what this child said to the news crew.  Watch the video first, and then more of my take.

YouTube Preview Image

And here’s the apology, courtesy of Gawker, from WBBM.

“We accept responsibility for the mistakes that were made, both in the reporting and editing of the story. The video of the child should not have aired. As soon as news management identified the problem, they took immediate steps to ensure that the video would not air in subsequent newscasts. In addition, we have followed up with our employees to make sure that we all have learned from the mistakes that were made.”

Unacceptable.  To twist the words of a four year old boy who really wanted a gun because he wanted to be a cop is disturbing.  Senseless, irresponsible journalism for CBS2 Chicago and more important, for CBS News.  The so-called Tyfanny Network when it comes to news has lost it’s shine.  People who have no sense of the history of CBS News in the Walter Cronkite and William Paley days are running the show and even TMZ could boast better content that what was delivered by CBS2 News Chicago.

This is a true embarrassment for this station and network.  But to whore out a four year old child and make him look like a thug is without question gutter, garbage journalism.  We expect that from TMZ.  Not from CBS.

The Maynard Institute released the actual footage to the world once this horrible broadcast effort was exposed.  Bob Butler wrote a great article about the so-called journalistic integrity of CBS2 Chicago saying “it clearly leaves the viewer with a negative image.”

No kidding.

Don Maynard, President of the Maynard Institute told Butler “this appears to be overtly criminalizing a pre-schooler.”

Once again no kidding.

This is a sad example of the low-level hiring of talent in local TV news.  Those who were in the TV news business that made the move to get out to salvage their integrity and career are no doubt not surprised.  And this writer, me, is one person that stayed away from the business for many years because the hiring of talent and behind the scenes people in television was extremely suspect.

Even at the management level.

Clear example of the need to keep an eye on these so-called journalists.  Again, you expect this from TMZ. Covering Jersey Shore on Entertainment Tonight, you know exactly what you’re going to get.  But you don’t expect this from CBS News.

WBBM used to be what we called “legendary call letters in broadcast journalism.  My have those days gone bye-bye.

Bad Week for Local TV Reporters, Now BB Pellets Fired at ABC 7′s Leanne Suter (Video)

July 31st, 2011 No comments

So last week we did a story about a FOX 29 Philadelphia reporter getting beat up while doing a live report from one of those houses full of cats and dogs.  He’s OK after a couple of guys first tried to knock out lighting during his live shot and then proceeded to push him in an attempt to get him out of the neighborhood.

As I say, “only in Philadelphia!”

ABC7 Reporter Leanne Suter

ABC7 Reporter Leanne Suter

Now we have a different story that is typical Los Angeles.  Two 15 year old boys were arrested for allegedly firing BB pellets at ABC7 reporter Leanne Suter and her photographer as she did a live report from the Fontana area of California.

Only in Los Angeles!  But there is a difference between L.A. and Philly.  Having lived in both cities, I have a statistical analysis of each when it comes to beating up reporters.  Ready?  In Philly, you beat up people first, then shoot them.  In Los Angeles, you shoot them first.

Case closed.  Gallup Polling should be calling me soon for a recap of my research.

Suter was covering the crazy weather we had out here yesterday where we there was sunshine in the city and rain in the outskirts when she was hit with a BB pellet in the hand.  More BB pellets kept coming her way so fast that she and her photographer both jumped in their ABC7 remote van to get away from the onslaught.  These two 15 year old delinquent morons kept firing at the van.

Suter was taken to a local hospital for treatment and released.  The two future inmates were released to their parents and the district attorney’s office is deciding on what action to take against the two.  Hey, how about charging them, maybe with something?  Um, er, uh  anything?

Arnold Kleiner, President and General Manager of ABC7 seven said “they could not have anticipated that someone would have targeted them in this way.”

Once again, only in Los Angeles.

‘House’ Player Olivia Wilde Burning Up Big Screen with ‘Cowboy and Aliens’ (Video)

July 31st, 2011 No comments

Most of us older folk know her as Thirteen on the FOX hit television show House.  Those in their younger years know her better for the work she did on The OC as Alex.  Now her career is taking a bit of a move forward, or should I say like a rocket ship as Olivia Wilde’s big screen career is really blowing up.

olivia wilde house1With a significant role in the much marketed Cowboys and Aliens along with several future films on the block for Olivia Wilde, television is a thing of the past for this performer at least for now.  Olivia Wilde has six, yes count them, six films that are going to be released in the next two years that will enhance her personal brand even more as a major name in Hollywood.

The Change Up, In Time and Butter are all films to be released sometime this year.  Then Olivia Wilde has Blackbird and Welcome to People ready to launch in 2012 with The Words set for 2013.

And she’s on track for a long career as she’s only 27 years of age.  Yes just 27.  And she comes from pretty good parentage as both parents are in the media world.  Her mother, Leslie Cockurn, is a producer for the CBS news magazine 60 Minutes and has written and produced several television documentaries.  Her father Andrew Cockurn was born in London and is a journalist as well.

Married at 19 years of age to the documentary filmmaker Tao Rispoli, that union broke apart in February of this year as her career moves forward.  And Maxim picked her as the hottest woman on the magazine’s Hot 100 in 2009.  But if your’e looking to date Olivia Wilde don’t take her to a Ruth Chris Steakhouse as the performer is 100% vegan.

What’s the future?  Well the list of movies  shows just hot hot she is for anyone looking to get her to work on any future project.  But where Olivia Wilde stands now is a long way from House and The OC.

Whole Lotta Slicing, Dicing, Knives and Lots of Blood, Spartacus:Vengeance on Starz (Video)

July 30th, 2011 No comments

Don’t watch this video with little baby Leon sitting on your lap.  This is not Your Baby Can Read with the amount of violence and mayhem in the new Starz promotional video for Spartacus: Vengeance, which hits the air in January on the pay channel.

Liam McIntyre from 'Spartacus: Vengeance'

OK, have you dropped little baby Leon from the computer monitor?  Then check it out.  It’s pretty awesome if you like this type of content.  Will tell you more shortly but watch the video first.

YouTube Preview Image

So there you have it.  The new really hot dude that is the new lead character Spartacus. Australian actor Liam McIntyre is the new Spartacus replacing Andy Whitfield, who left the show abruptly after a medical situation.  If you watch any of The  Pacific on HBO you saw Liam playing the character of Bell Captain Lew in that series.  Now with Whitfield out, the producers of the show needed to create some significant hype in bringing back the series.

They really did.

Employees Wearing Sunglasses, Hats to Enter New York FOX Offices

July 28th, 2011 No comments

There seems to be no end to the hacking scandal that’s about to destroy more careers throughout the Rupert Murdoch empire.  It has just become  simply never-ending as everyday the story just keeps getting bigger and continues to put the future of the company on life support.

Piers Morgan from CNN and NBC

Piers Morgan from CNN and NBC

Speaking with employees of FOX in many levels across the country, the hacking scandal has become such a thorn in the butts of employees of FOX that some of them are coming to work in New York pretty much in drag.  Most of them are totally embarrassed about the conservative cable network FOX News Channel and their ignorance of the scandal.  In other words how can they push this story to the side as if nothing happened.

Today the story gets even worse.  Scotland Yard now says a second murdered girl’s parents were given a phone that was hacked by an expert in the procedure.  Rebekah Brooks, the scumbag editor of the now defunct News of the World, gave the hacker a phone to give to the family and now that phone was hacked in to illegally.

I gotta tell you.  That woman Brooks is going to find herself in prison over this mess.  But wait there’s definitely more.

Now the Justice Department in the United States is speaking with 9/11 family members who had relatives perish in the disaster.  Speaking to them about the investigation that will be taking place to determine if rights were violated here in the U.S. by foreign reporters who have been accused of hacking in to their phones.

This is going to upset a lot of people in America.

And this would mean the complete and total end to News Corp. as the Justice Department, under the guise of the current Democratic administration, would use any means necessary to rip apart Rupert Murdoch’s empire.  Like a fat kid sitting in front of a chocolate cake, the Justice Department is ready to devour anything related to FOX News.

They will tear a new you know what in to that company and enjoy putting them out of business.  If you owned a brand that advertises on FOX News or any News Corp. owned property, would you continue to spend money on a network that abused the families of probably the biggest domestic disaster in the country’s history?

Then there’s one of television’s most well known names that’s about to be buried under this scandal.  That’s CNN and NBC’s Piers Morgan, who is just about headed to hell over this story.  First mistake was going on CNN and debating a member of Parliament who pretty much said she would leave the rest up to the media here in America.  That began a frenzy of media inquiries in to Piers Morgan on what he did or did not know about the hacking practice.  No matter what the outcome, even if he is proven to be completely unaware of the practice, his rule over another newspaper owned by Murdoch is to close of a connection to save his career here in the United States.

In other words, Piers Morgan may be finished as a television personality if there’s any link between him and hacking.  This is what we call a career-ender.

This whole story stinks to no end.  Really stinks.  But it is just beginning.  Like sharks smelling blood, the politicians in the country will look to destroy Rupert Murdoch.  Even Republicans won’t hide behind FOX News if there’s a connection to their parent company because this investigation will go right to their offices as well.

Just how deep is this scandal?

Sunglasses and hats are selling fast in New York, to a lot of FOX employees.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Wacko Bradlee Dean, a Lawsuit and the Execution of Homosexuals (Video)

July 27th, 2011 No comments

Yeah I know that’s a lot for a headline, it really is.  But when people get sued, I always get interested as I’m a big fan of Law & Order, any part of that series and also understand that gays and lesbians are the new “in” in America, yet knuckleheads like Bradlee Dean still exist in our society.

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Rachel Maddow from MSNBC

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Rachel Maddow from MSNBC

Now don’t get me wrong.  I don’t agree whatsoever with all rights for gays and lesbians.  That may be politically incorrect but I don’t care.  Living in Los Angeles, I’m surrounded by gays and lesbians, yet being a former homophobe, I get part of the new world order but can’t agree with everything going on in that community.

I have one follower on Twitter that is trying to get Ellen DeGeneres to interview the author of a book that teaches children the importance of same sex marriages and relationships, asking her to interview the author and I totally disagree with his efforts.

But Bradlee Dean is a freaking asshole.  And now he’s suing MSNBC and Rachel Maddow for comments she made during her show about his effort to execute all gays and lesbians in our society.  The lawsuit accuses Maddow of twisting his words in an effort to discredit another whack job in Michelle Bachmann, who is running for President of the United States.

These people are the reason I stopped doing very expensive scotch over the last few years.  Must stay focused on the mission of keeping these nut-jobs in their place.  Too much scotch and I might forget to vote.  Calling for the execution of gays and lesbians, well that’s a problem.

Why?

Because once lowlifes like Bradlee Dean finish off gays and lesbians, he’ll gather up a storm to then start working on African Americans and Latinos.  You see with people like him, it never ends.  In other words, or in Bradlee’s words, “who is next?”

But watch the video.  That’s all I can say.  Rachel Maddow is the best.

Only in Philadelphia Will People Beat Up a Reporter During Live TV (Video)

July 27th, 2011 No comments

Now you know I talk about being from Philly.  My hometown.  I get back on a regular basis to see family and friends, then after a few days can’t wait to get back to Los Angeles.

This video will show you why.

Philadelphia is a great city.  Doesn’t cost you much to live.  Even people who work in New York will take the almost two hour train ride daily from Philly to Penn Station in Manhattan to work.  But there’s a certain element, a really low class element that would do what happened to FOX 29 reporter as he was preparing to do a live shot during the FOX 10 O’cl0ck News.

Chris O'Connell Beat Up During FOX 29 Philly Live Shot

Chris O'Connell Beat Up During FOX 29 Philly Live Shot

Just watch the video.  Part of it will make you say wow!  Other parts of you will make you kinda laugh.

Chris O’Connell was doing a live shot outside of a house where animals were being housed.  You know one of those houses with 200 cats, 300 dogs and a couple of parrots.  The house was at 9th and Shunk in South Philly, and if you’ve ever been at 9th and Shunk in South Philly, well you would not want to spend a lot of time at 9th and Shunk in South Philly.

People there will usually say, “Hey yo, yo Nicky you fat chadrule, you messin’ wjth my wife?”  And not a lot of Wharton School graduates living there, actually a place where most residents have a strapped GPS monitor around their ankles.

Chris O’Connell ran in to a few of them.  Um, not good.  Not good at all.

Check out the video.  And the face of the anchor who maintains his cool as his reporter is beat up.  Again, since I’m from Philly and I did, in the old days, date a couple of South Philly girls back then.  They were lots of fun.  All South Philly girls, well you gotta slum it once in a while especially in your young years.  But after watching this video, I just gotta laugh.
