FBI On Hillary's E-Mails: EXTREMELY CARELESS, No Criminal Intent Comments (0)

You know I've been busy moving when I didn't have time to address this one: Hillary Clinton will almost certainly face no charges in her painfully protracted e-mail scandal.

FBI Director James Comey issued a harsh rebuke of Hillary's handling of her e-mail, even while laying out the reasons he believes no prosecutor would pursue charges. In a nutshell, via Huffington Post:

Despite the fact that the FBI found no criminal intent to leak classified information — the gravamen of the case — Comey expressed appropriate contempt for Clinton’s venality, carelessness and disregard for government processes. It just wasn’t illegal. 

Meanwhile, Dumb Donald harped on the system being rigged, even going so far as to say General Petraeus got into trouble for “far less.” Far less? He knowingly gave confidential info to a chick he was banging for her book.

Anyone with a brain has known for months this was the only likely outcome, not because anything is rigged, but because she didn't break the law. It won't save her from political fallout, but I would guess most of that has already been baked in, though her polling should take a hit this week. Next!

Noah Galvin's Impolitic Interview Could Get THE REAL O'NEALS Axed—But Should It? Comments (0)

When Noah Galvin opened his mouth to Vulture in a Q&A posted this past week, the main problem was he simply never shut it, riffing on his beliefs regarding the proper way to come out (Colton Haynes didn't pass muster), the right way to play a gay character on TV (Eric Stonestreet flunked) and even how not to use one's power in Hollywood (a remark about Bryan Singer and “little boys” was removed from the piece after his lawyers caught wind of it). 

While some of what Galvin said had merit, the overall tone of his remarks reeked of a regrettable smugness and a youthful disregard for how his words might affect other people—including his own co-stars.

To his credit—and no thanks to the decent number of gay fans who unhelpfully cheered him on, Galvin apologized: 

Now comes word that Galvin's show The Real O'Neals (a labor of love for many, including activist Dan Savage)—which is low-rated and was barely renewed—may be canceled after all. If it seems harsh to punish a whole show (and its many fans) thanks to the poorly considered comments of its star, THR reports that this interview shocked the network (it was reportedly set up by Galvin's publicist without their knowledge) but that he had previously been taken to the woodshed for issues of “ego and entitlement.”

Or they just want to reconsider saving a struggling show.

Via THR:

Galvin quickly apologized for his "brazen and hurtful comments" on Twitter, but how all of this bad press affects the low-rated bubble series—which, after an "abusive" waiting period (Galvin's word), was renewed by the network May 12—remains to be seen. As the controversy raged, the specter of a reduced episode order arose at ABC, according to one source. An executive producer who had spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take action," says this source. (Reps for ABC declined comment on the situation.)

It's a terribly hard lesson for a 22-year-old neophyte actor to learn; I'm sure he's mortified, especially that he may be costing the show's creatives and crew their jobs.

One unfortunate note I can add to this story: 

Galvin graciously appeared at TrevorLIVE NY on June 13. A friend of mine assisted him that evening, and while I'm sure everything was dreary for the guy considering the Vulture piece had just hit days before, his publicist wasn't winning him any new friends—she flatly refused to let my friend get a picture with Noah (all the attendees happily pose for pictures with their helpers) and I'm told she also refused to let Galvin pose with the person to whom he handed an award. Really? That's the point of using stars at charity events. Also, she told Galvin he wasn't allowed to drink.

I'm sure that a lot of the issues he's had are of his own making—and I hope he will figure things out, because people do deserve second chances—but when THR is calling out your publicist by name, as it did, and when your publicist is alienating admirers at charity events, it's probably time to get a new one.

6-PACK/politics — Sanders Admits System Isn't RIGGED, Just DUMB + Hillary Zaps Trump On Shameless Veteran-Donations Debacle + Hawking Brands Trump A DEMAGOGUE + Billy Joel Lightly Mocks Trump, Receives Thanks + Mr. French + Trans Victory! Comments (0)

*widget boy cultureSanders walks back idea the Democratic primary is “rigged”: “[N]ot rigged. I think it’s just a dumb process which has certainly disadvantaged our campaign.”

*widget boy cultureHillary Clinton dings Trump on his embarrassing military-veteran donation gaffe—half of his donations were sent the day he was shamed over it.

*widget boy cultureStephen Hawking calls Trump a “demagogue” who appeals to “the lowest common denominator.” Trump is dying to mock his physical limitations, call him a loser.

*widget boy cultureI think Billy Joel's a dick anyway, but taking Trump in such a lighthearted way and dedicating—I get it, sarcastically—a song to him is annoying. Trump isn't entertaining.

*widget boy cultureDavid French seems to be the conservative who will run as an Independent to help defeat Trump. Mitt Romney likes what he sees so far.
