President Trump made an appearance at CPAC on Saturday and demonstrated again his greatest strength: expertly playing to the crowd. Because his prepared comments were getting too "boring," Trump told the crowd that he was going to go "off script" — and that's when things got really entertaining. Among the memorable moments: Trump taunting the Democrats and the media for getting conspiratorial about him publicly asking Russia in 2016 to "Please!" get Hillary's emails; Trump mocking democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal, "or whatever the hell they call it"; and Trump slamming his vanquished "crooked" opponent and the "crooked" media, prompting chants of "Lock her up! Lock her up!" Trump also at one point admitted to trying really hard to hide his bald spot. "You know I'm totally off script right now," said Trump to loud cheers and applause. "And this is how I got elected — by being off script." "I've learned, because with the fake news, if you tell a … [Read more...] about WATCH: Trump Goes ‘Off Script’ At CPAC: Taunts Media Over Russia-Hillary Email Comment, Mocks AOC’s GND

It is 75 minutes before showtime at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, and the Justin Bieber Watch is in full effect. (OMG!) On the fourth-floor pool deck of the hotel that overlooks the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, a motley collection of MTV marketing partners, entertainment executives, and other shiny Angelenos are enjoying cocktails and squinting at the open-air red carpet. (Any minute now!) MTV has parked a cadre of young fans in bleachers across the street to scream on cue at every celebrity arrival, but in the meantime, they’re baking in the sun. Amid the hubbub are two guys huddled together, drinking Michelobs, unmoved by the glamour around them. After a few polite neck cranes over the rail, Twitter cofounder Evan Williams, flanked by his then-COO Dick Costolo, gives up. “I really can’t see anything,” he says. Williams then looks over at the bleachers, sees one girl literally turning pink before our eyes, and deadpans, “They probably … [Read more...] about I Want My Twitter TV!
CBS hopes that its new 24/7 live online news channel, CBSN, will expand its audience with younger viewers and teach the network what non-traditional TV viewers want. The new ad-supported service went live Thursday on CBSNews.com on the Web and mobile and other devices. Between 9 a.m. ET and midnight ET weekdays, anchors present stories live on the network, with hourly updates. Viewers can use DVR-like functions to rewind and catch up on earlier parts of the broadcast, as well as go live. "We've tried to make it so you can watch it in a passive way and an active way," says CBS News President David Rhodes. "We are all looking forward to seeing how people watch it and what succeeds and what doesn't. We weren't going to know those things until we got the product live." CBS' venture puts it ahead of the competition in online live news, when in the past it may have moved too tentatively as CNN and MSNBC took the lead in always-on cable news. "They had kind of blown it over the last … [Read more...] about CBS hopes to lure young viewers with online news channel
WASHINGTON – She’s cooked bean soup live and done laundry in public. She narrated much of what she calls “Congress camp” on Capitol Hill. We know what’s in her bank account – less than $7,000 – and what she thinks of reviews of her clothing. Such intimate details have kept Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s star on the rise since the 2007 Yorktown High School graduate upset Democratic veteran Joe Crowley in New York’s June primary. By the time she takes her seat in the House on Jan. 3 as the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez will have blazed a new, more public trail to Washington and literally shed light on the maze of Capitol Hill. “Guys there are secret underground tunnels between all of these government buildings,” she mock-whispers in one social media post. The passageways are hardly secret, as she notes – everyone from tourists to reporters and lawmakers jostle through them. … [Read more...] about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: She’s everywhere, puts trek to Congress online
For most of the year, Dr. Charles Nuttall is a trained nephrologist and a clinical research consultant to pharmaceutical companies. He is also an actor, model, photographer, and lest we forget, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, having won the award in 1985 as part of a group of doctors and medical workers who formed to prevent nuclear war. And for the past four years, Dr. Nuttall has taken on an extra role: Santa Claus. Between Dec. 16 and 23, he suits up for Santa’s Corner, part of the holiday market in Bryant Park. “You can say I’m sort of an accidental Santa,” he said. “I never intended to grow up to look like Santa, but since it happened I’ve decided to make the most of it.” Dr. Nuttall, 73, lives on the Upper East Side with his wife, Marcia Lerner, 63, in a building once occupied by Rube Goldberg. FREEDOM Now that I no longer work in an office but consult from wherever I happen to be in the world, every day is like Sunday. I’m not a … [Read more...] about How Charles Nuttall, Nobel Prize-Winning Doctor and Part-Time Santa, Spends His Sundays
