Fox News Claims It’s Moving Toward the ‘Center.’ This Show Sure Isn’t.
Roy Rochlin/GettyAs Fox News attempts to figure out its place in a post-Trump media landscape, the network has claimed it is moving “center-right.” A laughable claim, critics say—one that is easily disproved by Fox’s far-right primetime screeds but also by the tonal shift of a key noon-hour talk show.Outnumbered, which first debuted in 2014 as a female-led panel show (with a gimmicky “one lucky guy” slotted as the sole male panelist), has always straddled Fox’s increasingly blurred line dividing its “hard news” and opinion wings. But the show has long winked at its “fair and balanced” credentials by featuring a lone liberal pundit among its rotating panel.However, in recent months, and as Fox continues to grapple with a ratings plunge—at least in part due to MAGA diehards ditching the network after its news desk made accurate election-night calls for Joe Biden—the noon talk show appears to have benched two key liberal regulars in Marie Harf and Jessica Tarlov.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Inside the Golden Globes’ Shady History of Awards-Giving
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos via GettyWhen Netflix’s cutesy Emily in Paris was nominated for two Golden Globes in January, including Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy, the news was met with eyerolls and confusion. Sure, actress Lily Collins was spunky and well-dressed enough for the streaming giant to promptly renew the show for a second season. But for the silly, sugary rom-com to beat out Michaela Coel’s acclaimed I May Destroy You? How could that possibly happen?A few weeks after the announcement, there was a hint of an answer. Thirty-three members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which judges the Globes, were invited to Paris to tour the Emily in Paris set in 2019, courtesy of Paramount Network, the Los Angeles Times reported. A member told the outlet they were treated like “kings and queens.”Indeed, they were. Not only was their stay at the ritzy Peninsula Paris hotel—which overlooks the Arc de Triomphe and is still charging upwards of $1,400 a night in a worldwide pandemic—comped, but they were treated to a ritzy gala event at the private and historic Musée des Arts Forains.Read more at The Daily Beast.
