If you’ve been tooling around The Drudge Report at all the last couple of days, you may have noticed near the top, a handful of links to advance previews of Oliver Stone’s latest W., his third effort at biopic-ing an American president, and the only one to have received Mr. Stone’s esteemed treatment while its subject is still in office (the first two in his triptych were JFK (1991) and Nixon (1995).  The first review came from Variety‘s Todd McCarthy; the next day, The Hollywood Reporter was added to the list.

Mainstream Media Circles Wagons Around Obama

Posted by Sal Traina Categories: Elections, Media,

No matter who you’re voting for in this year’s election, you should be able to trust journalists, and the news they’re reporting to you. Almost 70 percent of people polled think the media is trying to help Barack Obama win. Here’s another example of media bias.

An AP report on AOL wrote Sarah Palin Says Obama Pals With Terrorist.  The article goes on to say, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Saturday accused Presidential candidate Barack Obama of “palling around with terrorists” because of an old association with a former ‘60s radical, stepping up an effort to portray Barack Obama as unacceptable to American voters.

All the Buzz on Queen Latifah

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Celeb News, Celebrity Gossip, Rumors,

Queen LatifahThe media is currently engaged in a fierce battle, as every single publication seems to be fighting for a single honor: they want to be one to out Queen Latifah. The rumors and gossip started naturally enough, when MediaTakeOut (an Internet site) announced they have exclusive rights to Queen’s story. The New York Post followed with a teaser that a certain ‘big Hollywood actress’ was soon going to come out of the closet and marry her girlfriend of four years.

The rumor is that Latifah and Jeanette Jenkins have been living together for some time and will soon take their love public in a big wedding. Is it true? Is Queen Latifah even homosexual? Queen and Jenkins have been spied together, but that doesn’t mean marriage is imminent. Who will be the first to break the story…if there even is a story?

CNN Documentary Reveals Poor Journalism

Cena Screwed On CNNProfessional wrestling has long been the red-headed stepchild of both entertainment and sports - dismissed as “fake”  for its predetermined outcomes and often criticized for its over-the-top personalities. So it comes as no surprise that when WWE superstar Chris Benoit killed his family and himself several months ago, pro-wrestling’s detractors saw their opening.

Since that day, speculation over the possible, albeit unlikely, link to those deaths and steroids has opened WWE to federal investigations as well as a firestorm of public/media scrutiny. Among the pieces supposedly “exposing” the steroid use of WWE superstars was CNN’s Death Grip: Inside Pro Wrestling, which aired this past week. In this broadcast, former WWE Champion John Cena was asked if he had ever used steroids. CNN showed his frank response as: “I can’t tell you that I haven’t, but you’ll never be able to prove that I have.”

But that’s not how Cena responded to the question. Join me after the jump for his full answer.
