Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News
Chris Licht’s attempt to move CNN more towards the center — by moving right — now includes hiring Stephen Gutowski, “the founder of The Reload, a news organization committed to ‘sober, serious reporting on–as well as analysis of–firearms policy and politics.’”
HIS ORGANIZATION IS CALLED “THE RELOAD.”
As you might expect, gun safety advocates have some thoughts.
THIS is who CNN just hired as a commentator on guns… Someone who was awarded gun lobby “reporter of the year,” who was a regular guest on the NRA’s extremists NRATV outlet, and friend of Dana and Chris Loesch… https://t.co/1pa6zIpL87

This is Stephen Gutowski. He blocked me some time ago after I called him out. He is a gun industry shill hired by @CNN as a paid correspondent on guns. CNN, my bias is saving lives. You can hire me as your gun correspondent. I will do it for free, or a donation to a cause. pic.twitter.com/Jx00iqifQz

Hiring Stephen Gutowski to report on gun violence is like hiring an oil exec to report on climate change. Love Josh and Jennifer though.

A former ABC News producer and reporter allegedly had his home raided by the FBI — possibly connected to classified documents? ABC says that James Gordon Meek “resigned very abruptly and hasn’t worked for us for months.”

The Channel 4 reporter above, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, has been taken off the air for a week for saying. It didn’t air on TV, but was picked up on a live stream, lol. (I bet he feels like it was worth it.)
He wasn’t the only one to drop the “c” bomb on TV, though:

Dame Judy Dench is hella pissed about The Crown, calling it “hurtful” and “crude sensationalism.”
The season premiere of Yellowstone and the series premiere of Tulsa King will screen in AMC theaters on October 29, ahead of their premieres on November 13.
Sounds like this upcoming season of Barry will be the last. Not entirely surprising, but ~sigh~.
Y’all: they’ve turned The Great British Bake Off into a musical. Insert taco challenge joke here.
Sarah Silverman and Kathryn Hahn’s feud — that I did not know they had — has been resolved. (It’s actually an interesting situation: Silverman called Hahn out for being cast as Jewish characters even though she is not Jewish. They’ve since talked it out, and everything is cool.)
Here is Drake Roger, the baby John Winchester of The Winchesters. One interesting thing about this interview is that he explains he’s not trying to recreate Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s performance, but rather incorporate parts of both Sam and Dean.
Billy Ray Cyrus is engaged to a woman younger than Miley who he met on the set of Hannah Montana and I’m just going to go stare at a wall for an hour.

Patrick Stewart got turned away from a comedy show I was on bc it was full and instead of saying “excuse me I am Patrick Stewart” he was like “ok thanks” and went home https://t.co/f7g9M63slr

Walter Hamada is out as the head of DC Films at Warner Bros. Discovery. He helped create the crossover of DC films and HBO Max, and oversaw production of The Batman during the pandemic. He also was accused by Ray Fisher of enabling Joss Whedon’s abusive behavior.
