Hollywood news banter

Hosted by

Richard Rushfield, editor-in-chief of The Ankler, joins Kim Masters to discuss top entertainment news stories of the week.

  • Charlie Rose is out at CBS and PBS after an article in the Washington Post detailed allegations of sexual harassment against Rose by eight different women.
  • And John Lasseter is taking a six-month-long sabbatical from Pixar and Disney after the Hollywood Reporter laid out an alleged pattern of misconduct. This one is especially stunning given that Lasseter is known for his family-friendly films. He oversees such an empire, Disney will likely try to bring him back, but it's unclear at this point if he'll be able to return.
  • In other news, the DOJ has sued to block the merger of AT&T and Time Warner.
