There is apparently a new report coming out on allegations of sexual misconduct against a high-profile media figure. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Ronan Farrow has another bombshell dropping in The New Yorker later today about Les Moonves, the CEO of CBS:
CBS declined to comment. A spokesperson for The New Yorker says “We don’t comment on pieces we haven’t published.” Sources with knowledge of the article say it delves into the broader culture at CBS and will publish later today on the magazine’s website. The allegations are said in part to involve instances of unwanted kissing and touching that occurred more than twenty years ago.
Farrow, of course, has extensively reported on numerous stories of serious allegations against high-profile figures like Harvey Weinstein. CBS has issued a statement:

CBS News anchor John Dickerson appeared on The Late Show and weighed in on various subjects surrounding the Trump presidency. Dickerson first addressed the recently-released that recorded then-candidate Donald Trump and his attorney Michael Cohen discussing the payment of silencing former Playboy model Karen McDougal about her alleged affair him the current president. “You cannot say you don’t know about something and then be on tape orchestrating the arrangement of the thing you previously said you didn’t know about,” Dickerson said. “He’s that good,” Stephen Colbert reacted. The CBS This Morning co-host called it “quite a serious deal” and that we all should still think that our president “should tell us the truth about things.” Colbert then pointed out that we now “grade” Trump’s lies “on a scale” that includes “betraying our country to a hostile foreign power,” but Dickerson added that the scale was also changed for Bill Continue reading "CBS’s John Dickerson Hits Trump: You Can’t Say You Don’t Know About Something and Be On Tape Discussing It"

A CBS interview with an ICE whistleblower was interrupted in wild fashion when two Homeland Security agents suddenly showed up at the whistleblower’s front door. In a segment which aired on CBS This Morning Thursday, CBS correspondent Jamie Yuccas was speaking with former ICE spokesman James Schwab — in what was his first television interview since his sudden resignation in March. Schwab told CBS he quit his post after Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a public claim that ICE failed to make 800 arrests as a result of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tipping off the community to ICE’s planned raid. Days earlier, in a carefully worded statement, Schwab told the media that “some” arrests had been lost due to the tip off. But then Sessions came out with the inflated number, and Schwab was peeved. “Completely false,” he said of the Sessions claim. Schwab added, “That made me extremely uncomfortable.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo on Sunday said that “there will be” a next school shooting if Americans do not “start using the ballot box” to elect officials who support gun control measures. Acevedo made the comment on CBS’ Face the Nation just two days after a school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas claimed the lives of 10 individuals. “We need to start using the ballot box and ballot initiatives to take the matters out of the hands of people that are doing nothing that are elected into the hands of the people to see that the will of the people Continue reading "Houston Police Chief Urges Gun Control Advocates to ‘Start Using the Ballot Box’"

‘His Private Parts?’: 4 Big Questions Cut From Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes Interview

While last night’s 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels included numerous salacious details regarding the porn star’s alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump, a few of the best moments were cut out of the TV version — including questions about the president’s “private parts.” Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, appeared on CBS last night with Anderson Cooper in her first televised tell-all regarding her alleged relationship with Trump. She discussed the president’s supposed interest in being spanked, him comparing her to his daughter Ivanka Trump, and even the threats Daniels claims to have received after the 2006 meeting. However, a few quality quotes were saved for CBS’ online Overtime vertical in a post-game interview between Cooper and Ann Silvio. Below are the four best snippets included exclusively in the web edition. 1.

60 Minutes Scores Biggest Ratings Since 2008 With Stormy Daniels Interview

CBS scored big with their much-hyped Stormy Daniels interview on Sunday night. The two segment piece, fronted by Anderson Cooper, propelled the venerable newsmagazine to its highest rating since 2008, according to Nielsen. The broadcast pulled down a 16.3 overnight — the show’s largest audience since President Barack and Michelle Obama sat for their first interview after the 2008 election. The number is more than double what 60 Minutes normally draws. (Last week’s broadcast posted a 7.6 rating.) As a bonus, CBS benefitted from a strong lead-in — a compelling NCAA Tournament game between two powerhouse basketball programs, Duke and Kansas. The game, won by Kansas in overtime, resulted in 60 Minutes starting approximately 35 minutes late. [featured image via screengrab] —— Follow Joe DePaolo (@joe_depaolo) on Twitter

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels alleged Donald Trump downplayed his relationship with his wife in 2006 — just after Barron Trump was born — by saying the two lived in “separate rooms.” Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, made the claim while appearing on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper to discuss her relationship and alleged sexual relationship with the now-president. “Melania Trump had recently given birth to a son, just a few months before. Did he mention his wife or child at all in this?” Asked Cooper. Daniels responded: “I asked. And he brushed it aside — said, ‘Oh yeah, yeah, you know, don’t worry about that. We don’t even we have separate rooms and stuff.'” During the interview, the pron star also claimed that Trump brought up his daughter Ivanka Trump because she reminded him of Daniels. “He was like, ‘Wow, you– you are special.

During tonight’s 60 Minutes extravaganza, adult film actress Stormy Daniels claimed Donald Trump said she reminded him of his daughter Ivanka Trump after spanking him with a magazine — a remark she says was made just before their alleged sexual experience. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told the story while discussing her alleged 2006 affair with the now-president. After anchor Anderson Cooper asked Daniels about their “conversation” that transpired in a hotel room, the porn star said he began by bragging about himself, but changed after she jokingly threatened to “spank” him with a magazine. Daniels told Cooper the following while on CBS:
“It started off — all about him just talking about himself. And he’s like, ‘Have you seen my new magazine?’ … And so I was like, ‘Does this — does this normally work for you?’ And he looked very taken — taken back… Continue reading "Stormy Daniels Reveals Details of Trump Affair: He Said I Reminded Him Of Daughter Ivanka After Spanking"

After months of piping hot anticipation, titillating promos, and flashes of what to expect from of a TV-happy lawyer, the wait is finally over: Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes interview is set to air tonight. In the interview, with Anderson Cooper, Daniels is expected to dish on her alleged affair with President Donald Trump. Weeks before the 2016 election, Stormy — real name Stephanie Clifford — signed a nondisclosure agreement in exchange for $130,000 to keep quiet about an affair she claims she had with Trump in 2006. The episode, which was recorded earlier this month, will air despite Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen’s efforts to thwart it with a restraining order. It’s all set to go down at 7 p.m. EST on Sunday on CBS stations nationwide. For those who don’t have access to CBS broadcasts, the interview can be watched online on the CBS digital streaming Continue reading "STORMY SUNDAY: Where to Watch And What to Expect From The Stormy Daniels 60 Minutes"

Vegas Shooting Survivor Still Supports Civilian Use of Assault Weapons: Gun ‘Ban’ Not Helpful

Las Vegas shooting survivor Toby Clark, who is the owner of “many” firearms, still doesn’t support any kind of legislation that would ban semiautomatic rifles such as AR-15s. Clark, who appeared on a CBS News segment discussing gun control with gun violence victims, told reporter Bianna Golodryga that his views against changing current firearm laws has not shifted after surviving the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history:
“I’m open to ideas to fix the problems that we have. I mean nobody’s perfect — we all make mistakes. But when, you know, people just want to ban something just because someone did something wrong with it — I mean, that’s not helping the issue at all.”
The Las Vegas victim isn’t the only mass shooting survivor to espouse support for firearms, as a student who experienced the Parkland, Florida attack said the incident would’ve gone differently if a Continue reading "Vegas Shooting Survivor Still Supports Civilian Use of Assault Weapons: Gun ‘Ban’ Not Helpful"

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gave a rare interview to 60 Minutes last night, and was asked about reports he called President Donald Trump a “fucking moron” over the summer. Tillerson’s contentious relationship with the boss has long been documented in the press, with a steady stream of reports coming out throughout the summer and fall of 2017 that hobbled relations between the two. One of the most stunning was a report that Tillerson threatened to resign from his post in July, and that he called Trump a “fucking moron” during a meeting with administration officials at the Pentagon. In response, Tillerson held a press conference in October, but, in a jaw-dropping turn of events, did not deny he Continue reading "Watch Rex Tillerson’s Hilarious Dodge When Asked If He Called Trump a ‘Moron’: ‘That’s a Really Old Question’"

Oprah Winfrey is making it clear that despite all the recent rumors and hopes from her fans, she has no interest in running for president. Ever since Winfrey’s passionate speech last month at the Golden Globes, there’s been a lot of chatter about whether she would ever consider pursuing the Oval Office. Winfrey has previously insisted that she doesn’t want to go for it, and in a new interview with Ann Silvio for 60 Minutes, Winfrey said she would’ve removed herself from her current role as a journalist and conversationalist if she was seriously thinking about going into Continue reading "Oprah on Rumors That Globes Speech Was Prelude to 2020 Run: ‘Are You Kidding Me?’"

Despite being hospitalized for several hours due to asthmatic issues, ex-White House official Omarosa Manigault-Newmanwent plans to return to the reality TV series Celebrity Big Brother as soon as her health issues clear up. Omarosa’s asthma was triggered after an wild game of bowling that involved her spinning in circles before attempting to knock pins over with the ball. The former Apprentice star apparently took the game too far, as she suffered an asthma attack in the process. It was announced on tonight’s airing of the show on CBS that Omarosa will now be returning to the set:
“‘Omarosa has been taken to the hospital to be treated for an asthma attack. She is recovering and will be returning to the house prior to the nomination ceremony. The game will continue as normal.’ So she’s fine.”
While the majority of the cast members voiced happiness in her return, one Continue reading "Omarosa Will Return to Celebrity Big Brother After Being Hospitalized Due to Asthma Attack"

Host Drew Carey took quite a fall on The Price Is Right stage after an overeager contestant latched onto him in an attempted hug, causing them both to crash to the floor. Carey’s fall looked particularly painful, as his side landed on top of what appears to be a metal light fixture. However, the host shot back up to his feet and announced that he was “fine” — all while the contestant apologized profoundly for the stumble. Despite the hard fall, Carey carried on with the show and seemed to recover just fine. Of course, this isn’t the first time The Price Is Right has dealt with humorous on-stage embarrassment. In a throwback episode, a model displaying a refrigerator that contestants could win experiences technical trouble as she can’t seem to get the fridge’s doors to close. The gaffe has since been turned into a widely-used GIF. Additionally, Carey has Continue reading "WATCH: Drew Carey Got Knocked Over On Stage by a Price Is Right Contestant"

How to Watch Steelers-Jaguars NFL Divisional Playoff Game Live Stream Online

NFL Divisional Playoff Sunday kicks off in Pittsburgh with an intriguing matchup between the Steelers and the upstarts Jacksonville Jaguars. The Steelers enter the playoffs red hot — as winners of 10 of their last 12. But they’ll have to avenge both of the losses over the next two weeks if they want to get to the Super Bowl. Next week, Pittsburgh would have to beat New England — to whom they lost a controversial heartbreaker on Dec. 17. But in order to get that opportunity, the Steelers would have to beat a Jaguars team which blew them out 30-9 on Oct. 8. The way the Jacksonville offense is going right now, though, it seems highly unlikely they’ll put up 30 points again. The Jaguars enter off of a 10-3 victory over Buffalo in the Wild Card round. Their defense was stout, but their offense couldn’t do a thing against Continue reading "How to Watch Steelers-Jaguars NFL Divisional Playoff Game Live Stream Online"

Divisional Round Saturday night in Foxboro has become something of an NFL tradition. From the tuck rule game to Tim Tebow‘s unlikely (and short-lived) postseason cameo, the New England Patriots have found a home on Saturday nights in the second weekend of the playoffs. This year, they’ll get the Tennessee Titans — in front of a packed house at a frigid Gillette Stadium. But is there trouble in paradise for the defending champions? An explosive ESPN article from last week suggests that there has been a rift between superstar quarterback Tom Brady, coach Bill Belichick, and owner Robert Kraft. As they chase their sixth Super Bowl together, the story begs the question; is this their last go-round together? The Tennessee Titans kicked off the postseason last Saturday with an impressive road win against Kansas City. But this seems like a very tall order for a young team Continue reading "How to Watch Patriots-Titans NFL Divisional Playoff Game Live Stream Online"

Wild Card Sunday begins with the Jacksonville Jaguars hosting the Buffalo Bills, with a spot in the Divisional round on the line. Yes, you read that right. The Jacksonville Jaguars, who last made the playoffs in the 2007 season, are meeting the Buffalo Bills — whose last postseason appearance came January 2000. The Bills, of course, are hoping this playoff experience goes a little better than that one did. That last Bills postseason contest was the famous “Music City Miracle” game — in which the Tennessee Titans scored the game-winning touchdown on a fluky kickoff return in the closing seconds. For a franchise that was so successful in the 90s, having appeared in four consecutive Super Bowls, this playoff return has been a long time coming. But the Bills are up against a solid squad in Jacksonville — albeit one that’s sputtering a bit coming into the postseason. The Jags Continue reading "How to Watch Jacksonville vs. Buffalo NFL Wild Card Playoff Game Live Stream Online"

James Brown — longtime host of the NFL Today on CBS — is claiming that he was hacked after his account retweeted a clip from a porn site. The retweet, according to The Big Lead, happened early Monday morning — just after midnight. (A link to a screengrab of the NSFW tweet can be found here.) Only a few minutes passed before the NFL Today host — best known to viewers as JB — deleted the offending retweet and posted that his account had been compromised. Twitter was wholly unconvinced. They replied to Brown’s claim of being hacked with a series of GIFs showing their skepticism.

Nikki Haley: Women Who’ve Accused Trump of Sexual Misconduct ‘Should Be Heard’

While the White House has taken the position that the issue of more than a dozen women accusing Donald Trump of sexual misconduct was settled with the 2016 presidential election, a prominent member of the Trump administration appears to have diverged from that specific talking point. Appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley was asked about the Trump accusers who came forward last year. After having already said she was “incredibly proud of the women” who had come forward against members of Congress recently, Haley said she felt the same about those who accused the current president. “Women who accuse anyone should be heard,” she stated. “They should be heard, they should be dealt with. I think we heard from them prior to the election and I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every Continue reading "Nikki Haley: Women Who’ve Accused Trump of Sexual Misconduct ‘Should Be Heard’"
