I’ve noted before that the Financial Times — the British equivalent of the Wall Street Journal — isn’t reticent about treating readers as adults and using four-letter words when appropriate. The latest example from today’s edition is in a wonderful review of the Womad festival where they mention French singer Camille did a cover of […]. Culture Shock

Ricky Harris, Dead at 54 - Entertainment Business Hard on Heart

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The entertainment business is obviously hard on the heart. Ricky Harris follows George Michael in death. Both apparently died of a heart attack. Both were in their 50s. Like Michael, Harris was a giant in his niches. Those were acting and stand-up comedy. He had the range to shift from raunchy as when collaborating with Snoop Dogg to Americana wholesome as in the series "Everyone Hates Chris." " Hw was 54. Here is the coverage by the LA Times.

  Reporting has become a form of entertainment. From its graphics to its headlines, the DrudgeReport.com  remains with its initial formula: News, hold the entrainment.    Unlike the Huffingtonpost.com and Gawker.com, the web site is graphically bare.    The most it ever had was a blue siren to signal breaking news.    And its headlines are austere, communicating just the facts.

Drudge Report remains where we go for our news, including the latest in politics. That's despite the reality that the site is conservative. From the get-go, Drudge Report knew how to attract and keep eyeballs. It had used the flashing blue light for breaking news. During Campaign 2016, it used a poll.

Given that shift, its editor in chief Jim Roberts and more than 2 dozen editorial staffers are out. Here is the coverage by Keith J. Kelly in the New York Post.

Power Presentations Tip 49: Entertain Your Audience

Executive Speech Coach

Entertain Your Audience After you create the content for your presentation, the next step is to sprinkle entertainment throughout. Because the entertainment grabs the attention of your audience and makes it easier for them to listen to and digest the morsels of content. The more dry and boring the content might seem to your audience – the more important it is for you to include the entertainment. Don’t entertain for the sake of entertainment only.

Another entertainment legend has passed over. Barbara Hale, who played Della Street on "Perry Mason," has died. She was 94 years old. Here is the coverage from Daily Mail. It was "Perry Mason" which got America hooked on legal drama. Without that, there probably would not have been a market for "LA Law," "Boston Legal," and "The Good Wife." " Today, of course, there would be no market for goody-two-shoes "Perry Mason."

Drudge Report Curates New Game of Watching Megyn Kelly, Fox News Scramble - The Best Summer Entertainment Ever

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The Drudge Report knows exactly what news internet surfers want. So, of course, it has curated Variety's coverage of the low ratings for both Megyn Kelly's "Sunday Night" and for her old home Fox. Glam Girl Kelly and the House Roger Ailes built are the ones many love to hate right now. They had been hot, influential and rich. Now they seem to be racing to has-been status. The game is to watch them scramble. It's in a downward trajectory that dumb mistakes are made.

Knockout, U.S.A.: As random and entertaining for powerless use as raping in India

Gore Vidal, Dead at 86 - End of era of writer as entertainer, public figure, financially secure

  The public welcomed the literary crowd to be entertainers and outsized public figures.  Gore Vidal, like Norman Mailer and Truman Capote, came of professional age when typewriters were still an option.    Most scribes would put ther first drafts down on yellow legal paper.    They would probably never have become comfortable with Microsoft's Word. Vidal belonged to a whole other era, reports THE NEW YORK TIMES in covering his death at age 86.

Entertainment Celebrities - Megawattage Darkened in Trumpville

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The president-elect had a successful career as an entertainment celebrity. The question, of course, is: Will Trump's war on entertainment celebrities be successful? Meanwhile, we have to recall that 20th century kinds of censorship of entertainment celebrities did kill careers. His medium had been television. So, he understands the attention game. Or megawattage. Without the right and enough attention the celebrity's career darkens into being a has-been.

Why isn't Question Time as entertaining as it used to be & what should be done about it

Max Atkinson

I've nothing against Sissons or Dimbleby, other than that they are too straight and predictable to make the programme anything like as entertaining as it was when Day was in charge. Different from Day, yes, but both with a degree of eccentricity and unpredictability of the kind that used to make Question Time so very entertaining.

Question Time as entertainment: the 'Not the Nine O'Clock News' version

Max Atkinson

Having raised the question of whether BBC's Question Time has lost its way through its selection of post-Robin Day chairmen and addition of a fifth guest ( previous post ) should enjoy this version from the Not the Nine O'clock News team. If you can't imagine a comedian pulling off anything as effective as this by impersonating Peter Sissons or David Dimbleby in the chair, it arguably supports the point I was making in the previous post

It was Hollywood which supported Hillary Clinton. And let's cut to the chase.
