Hosted by

Matt Belloni, editorial director of the Hollywood Reporter, joins Kim Masters to discuss top entertainment news stories of the week.

  • Why are the Fox-owning Murdochs attacking Trump now? It might have something to do with the pending deal for the very conservative company Sinclair to take over a wide array of TV stations.
