Hollywood May Put Its Spin On Obamacare

The raspy-voiced singing star was immortalized on the famous Hollywood walk at a ceremony attended by her brother Michael and sister Laura, while country music luminary Kris Kristofferson played her signature hit "Me and Bobby McGee." "Janis Joplin is an iconic figure, and her songs will always be remembered by her fans around the world," said Ana Martinez of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which oversees the famous Tinseltown sidewalk. The 1960s hard-partying rock singer would have been 70 years old this year. She died in October 1970, at the age of 27. Joplin was given the 2,510th star on the Walk of Fame, where entertainment legends have long been enshrined on a stretch of pavement which attracts millions of tourists every year. Her famous songs include "Down on Me," "Summertime," "Cry Baby" and "Mercedes Benz." But her biggest hit was "Me and Bobby McGee," written by Kristofferson. <br>Source:

In short order, Min turned The Hollywood Reporter into a slick, power-focused, visually appealing package of Hollywood news and gossip, with more info a website whose skyrocketing traffic levels suddenly changed the Hollywood trade publication model. Last year, Penske, in a defensive measure, bought Variety , with a plan to revitalize it and compete in the new glossy wars, leaving Finke, whose granular focus seemed out of step with the larger opportunities, on the sidelines and gaining Penske, he no doubt hoped, some distance from her personal histrionics. But here is the cautionary note for investors: People with their own brands can bite back. The same skills that propelled Finke to brand singularity meant she had the wherewithal and temperament to endlessly and publicly torture Penske. Their feud is now one of the main Hollywood business news stories. Penske surely has a problem, beyond even the daily sturm und drang and the high toxicity levels of being Finke's enemy. <br>Source:

Critics of the law will be closely watching to see if Hollywood might be airbrushing the presidents core program, because they are close to the Democrats. Hollywood can be a forceful shaper of style and public sentiment. A survey conducted several years ago for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation found that among those who said their feelings toward gays and lesbians had become more favorable, many said a contributing factor was seeing more gay and lesbian characters on TV and in movies. Vice President Joe Biden has credited the 1998-2006 TV sitcom Will & Grace, which featured a gay character, with doing more to educate the public than almost anything anybodys done so far. But Hollywood sparkle doesnt always get results. The Obama administration is facing questions about whether the U.S. is improperly or even illegally snooping on people at home and abroad. A recent video warning of the dangers of domestic spying and calling for an end to mass National Security Agency surveillance featured actor John Cusack, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal and director Oliver Stone. The videos impact is hard to measure, but questions linger about the surveillance practices. <br>Source:

The grant announcement comes after the stumbling launch of the federal website where Americans shop for the health insurance they are required to have next year. The White House also has been forced to backtrack on vows that no one would lose their existing coverage and that anyone happy with their current insurance and doctor could keep them. Arthur Caplan, head of the division of medical ethics at New York University's Langone Medical Center, said to have credibility, Hollywood must present the health care plan warts and all. "If there are drawbacks and glitches and discontent, that should be part of the presentations," said Caplan, who supports the law. "It should not be a place to propagandize; it should be a place to have honest open discussion, wrinkles and all, flaws and all, on health reform," he said. Critics of the law will be closely watching to see if "Hollywood might be airbrushing the president's core program, because they are close to the Democrats."

Did Hollywood studios help Hitler?

Vice President Joe Biden has credited the 1998-2006 TV sitcom "Will & Grace," which featured a gay character, with doing "more to educate the public than almost anything anybody's done so far." Zingale and Kaplan both stressed that the writers and producers remain solely in control of the content they create, kim kardashian in a thong with no strings from the endowment or the USC center, which select the health care experts and academics who will provide advice to them. Overall, the Los Angeles-based foundation expects to spend $130 million for advertisements and other enrollment efforts aimed largely at Hispanics. The foundation's president, Robert K. Ross, is a member of the board of Covered California, the state-run insurance exchange set up under the new law.

Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013 Did Hollywood studios help Hitler? By Bo Emerson The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Hitler was fascinated with Hollywood, sometimes watching two films a day, and as the Third Reich rose to power during the 1930s, Hollywood did what it could to keep the Fuehrer pleased and German audiences entertained. New scholarship shows just how far the studios were willing to bend to keep their films circulating in the Fatherland. American moviemakers agreed to cut scenes from movies, scuttled entire projects and removed Jews from roles in front of and behind the camera. <br>Source:
