Anti-Trump Book Is Spectacular Flop

  Book sales nowadays are often a reflection of celebrity: If you’ve got a hit TV show, a publisher will pay you big bucks in advance for a book and hire a ghostwriter to put it together for you, on the theory that your fans will all pay $24.95 for anything with your picture on […]

  Eric Scheiner of the Media Research Center has video of Kathy Griffin’s appearance on Los Angeles KTLA-TV news in which the comedienne, who infamously had the idea that the decapitation of President Trump would be a funny “joke,” complains: “I still do not have one single day of paid work ahead of me for […]
