Trump tears AFTRA a new one

“Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me.”

Published

After the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists board voted “overwhelmingly” to oust Donald Trump as a member, the former president had a few things to say. 

“I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership,” Trump wrote in a letter to SAG President Gabrielle Carteris. “Who cares!”

“While I’m not familiar with your work,” he added, “I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never sleeps; and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice – to name just a few!” 

Trump said he has “also greatly helped the cable news television business (said to be a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics), and created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others.” 

“Which brings me to your blatant attempt at free media attention to distract from your dismal record as a union,” he continued. “Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me – besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas – as evident by your massive unemployment rates and lawsuits from celebrated actors who even recorded a video asking, ‘Why isn’t the union fighting for me?’” 

The video referenced was posted last year by actors like Whoopi Goldberg and Morgan Freeman, among others, who blasted the union’s health plan benefit cuts, Fox News reports.

“I no longer wish to be associated with your union,” Trump noted. “As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resigning from SAG-AFTRA.” 

He went out with a bang: “You have done nothing for me.” 

The board voted to expel Trump’s membership from the union following the Capitol riot on January 6. 

“Donald Trump attacked the values that this union holds most sacred – democracy, truth, respect for our fellow Americans of all races and faiths, and the sanctity of the free press,” Carteris said last month. “There’s a straight line from his wanton disregard for the truth to the attacks on journalists perpetrated by his followers.”  

Trump has been a member of SAG since 1989, but made it clear he won’t miss his membership too much. 

“Who cares!”

      President Trump is not the one who created this mess – four years ago when he was cleaning up the swamp -the swamp didn’t like that – they just wanted to remain their old stupid corrupt self! and half the country fell for it and still do! Trump has every right to defend himself yet he gets put down for it. who made these hollyweirdoes so important that they can say anything they want to a man who did a great job running this country – the media, the left, the so called stars are all in bed together! shame on them and you know what paybacks are tough and I do hope Trump does get even! He is the real president

        Perfectly said! I totally agree. My President is greatly missed and it is sickening and frightful to see what is happening with Biden reversing decisions President Trump made and killing jobs. This union is as you say, in bed with the Biden administration. President Trump will stand strong and tall through it all.

    There is a saying “one fool makes many” …. One idiot does something and gets on the news for 15 seconds and every idiot follows suit because they are after the publicity. We see this happen in politics, the media, Hollyweird and in our educational system and what is mind-numbing about most of these actions is that they are stupid, hateful, serve no useful purpose in the larger scheme and some are even unconstitional…. Good on President Trump to rip them a new one…

    Values? What values does AFTRA have? Judging by what they’ve been doing the last few years, hate, immorality, racism, I would say President Trump did the right thing. I would never want to be associated with such a morally and ethically bankrupt organization.

      Yes! They are so proud of the filth their members keep churning out. When’s the last time you REALLY enjoyed a sitcom without being embarrassed for everyone involved, and embarrassed for yourself for watching it?

    Trump always finds a way to come on top. Been getting reports that Trump is looking at creating his own media company, may even partner to buy the failing, crashing and burning CNN. Wouldn’t that be rich.

    This is more, ” hey, look we did something” without really doing anything from Hollywood, as usual.
    They’re loathsome human beings. Donald Trump doesn’t need them.
    And on a side note, you’re remarkable human being, Leo Terrell. I watched and listened to you for a long time.
    God Bless You! ????????❤????

Chris Cuomo Forced Out Of SiriusXM After CNN Firing – Report

Published

Chris Cuomo

On Monday, ex-CNN host Chris Cuomo announced that he had resigned from his SiriusXM radio show just days after being fired from CNN over his deep involvement with the handling of sexual assault allegations against his brother ex-Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo.

“The way my time ended at CNN is hard,” he said in a statement. “While I have a thick skin, I also have a family, for whom the past week has been extraordinarily difficult. So, right now, I have to take a step back and focus on what comes next. That means I will no longer be doing my SiriusXM radio show. I am extremely grateful for the support I have received from SiriusXM throughout my time there. I also want to express my sincere appreciation for my loyal listeners. I will miss our conversations a great deal – but I look forward to being back in touch with you all in the future.”

 

“Following Chris Cuomo’s statement that he is leaving his SiriusXM show, Let’s Get After It will no longer air. We thank Chris for his work at SiriusXM,” a SiriusXM spokesperson said in a statement.

According to the New York Post, a source said that Cuomo was “forced out” of Sirius after “a former female colleague at ABC News accused him of sexual misconduct.”

“Cuomo ‘really wanted’ to stay on Sirius but was told he needed to leave,” the New York Post reported, adding, “A source familiar with the matter said of Cuomo, ‘He was asked to resign, which he did.’”

CNN also reportedly learned of a new accusation of sexual misconduct against Chris Cuomo, unrelated to his brother, that led CNN to take “immediate action.”
The New York Times
reported, “On Wednesday, Debra S. Katz, a prominent employment lawyer, informed CNN of a client with an allegation of sexual misconduct against Chris Cuomo. Ms. Katz said in a statement on Saturday that the allegation against the anchor, which was made by a former junior colleague at another network, was ‘unrelated to the Gov. Andrew Cuomo matter.’”

When asked about the new allegation, a CNN spokeswoman said in a statement on Saturday night, “Based on the report we received regarding Chris’s conduct with his brother’s defense, we had cause to terminate. When new allegations came to us this week, we took them seriously, and saw no reason to delay taking immediate action.”

Twitter Releases Redesigned Orange and Red ‘Misinformation’ Labels

Twitter is doubling down on letting you know when they think your internet behavior is uncouth

Published

Twitter

Twitter is doubling down on letting you know when they think your internet behavior is uncouth. Reportedly the company has been testing new labels since July, and “are an update from those Twitter used for election misinformation before and after the 2020 presidential contest” reports the Associated Press.

The new designs include added orange and red labels to “stand out” more than the old blue version, which blended with Twitter’s blue color scheme. However, the company was also cautious, as “its tests showed that if a label is too eye-catching, it leads to more people to retweet and reply to the original tweet.”

The AP writes those labels used in the presidential election “drew criticism for not doing enough to keep people from spreading obvious falsehoods.” Therefore the redesign will launch on Tuesday in hopes of being “easier to notice.”

The AP states experts say such labels are helpful to users and allow the big tech social media giants to “sidestep the more difficult work of content moderation – that is, deciding whether or not to remove posts, photos and videos that spread conspiracies and falsehoods.”

In its testing phase, Twitter said the redesigned labels showed a 17% increase in “click-through-rate” meaning more people would click on the labels to read the information debunking false or misleading tweets. “Misleading tweets that got the redesigned label – with an orange icon and the words ‘stay informed’ were also less likely to be retweeted or liked than those with the original labels.”

Twitter labels three types of misinformation: “manipulated media,” such as videos and audio believed to have been deceptively altered in ways that could cause real-world harm; election and voting-related misinformation and false or misleading tweets related to COVID-19.

The AP adds “tweets with more serious misinformation – for instance, a tweet claiming that vaccines cause autism – will get a stronger label, with the world ‘misleading’ and a red exclamation point. It won’t be possible to reply to, like or retweet these messages.”
