Hollywood News Banter

Hosted by and

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

  • A six-month investigation into the Sony hack by Fortune magazine reveals lax security at the studio and that executives ignored several warnings that making a film about the assassination of Kim Jong Un could have devastating consequences.
  • Univision is dropping Donald Trump and will not air his Miss Universe pageant after Trump made disparaging statements about Mexican immigrants during his announcement of his intent to run for president. 
  • NBC also dumped Trump. He will no longer participate in Celebrity Apprentice, and the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants will no longer air on NBC. While Trump has said it was his decision to end the relationship, NBC issued a statement saying they were severing all business ties with the possible presidential hopeful because of his "recent derogatory statements" about Mexican immigrants.
  • Bill Cosby is fighting a move to make public material from an old sex abuse lawsuit. The court records should be unsealed after two years, but Cosby told a judge he's not a public figure, so there's no public interest in revealing the material.
