Dr. Phil Reportedly Named a Top Hillary Campaign Adviser

Yes indeedy, allegedly well-placed Washington sources are whispering rumors that the infamous, publicity mongering Dr.Phil has just been named to a top advisory position in Hillary Clinton’s political campaign. He’ll join the likes of Ragin’ Bill Clinton, Howard “Hoodwink ‘Em” Wolfson, Magpie Williams, and Mark “I Run This Show” Penn in helping to determine our political destiny during the next few weeks.

And just coincidentally, it’s ratings sweeps time again in television land!! Since Dr. Phil can’t exploit Britney Spears again right now (since her own family is doing a good job of that) or the teenage girl accused of being the ringleader of a high school smackdown, Dr. Phil has turned to ripping off a sick, but popular popular reality show: The Moment of Truth. it’s been exposed how the good non-doc’s using a polygraph, a child molestation victim, and fancy graphics all in the name of ratings. It’s being rumored that Hillary might make a special appearance as one of the very first guests on Dr. Phil’s version of Moment of Truth, just to prove that all of her notorious “misspokens” were actually true!!

America’s Obsession with Celebrities

netXnews has published an interesting opinion piece that examines the media scrum surrounding Anna Nicole’s Death:

“The American public’s obsession with celebrities has hit an all-time high–or low, depending on how one looks at it–thanks to the death of Anna Nicole Smith.

At the root of this problem is the media, who grossly over-covered the legal proceedings following Smith’s death. John B. Bogart, former editor of the New York Sun, once said, “When a dog bites a man, that’s not news, because it happens so often. But if a man bites a dog, that’s news.” The Anna Nicole Smith controversy was certainly newsworthy by this standard, and the media should have given it some airtime. What they did instead was sell out to sensationalism.

For a week, it was impossible to turn on the news without getting in-depth coverage of the legal proceedings, reminiscent of the Florida ballot count and the Clinton impeachment. The difference was, the latter two had tremendous political implications. The Smith debate had next to nothing, but because it was sensational, it remained on the air.

This could be excusable if there really was nothing else to run a story about. It’s a fact of a journalist’s life that some days in the newsroom are just slow, and what better way to spruce up a daytime news program than to cover a live case? The problem here is that those days weren’t slow.

On Feb. 21, for instance, British Prime Minister Tony Blair announced the withdrawal of 1,500 British troops from Basra, Iraq. This was “man bites dog” times two–not only were troops being pulled; they were being pulled BECAUSE THEIR MISSION WAS SUCCESSFUL. That day, people should have been asking questions about Blair’s decision. Was Britain’s mission really complete and successful? If it was, what could American military leaders learn from it? Are the British doing something we aren’t? Why is there so much cooperation in Basra, while there is so much sectarian violence and a general lack of cooperation in Baghdad?

Instead, Blair’s announcement was for the most part confined to brief news updates and the bottom ticker, while Judge Larry Seidlin’s personal anecdotes and Vergie Arthur’s antics took center stage. People were asking questions like, Is Larry Birkhead the father of Smith’s child or is Howard K. Stern? Or could it be Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, Mark Hatten or Alexander Denk?

During the Anna Nicole melee, Denmark announced that it would pull all of its 460 troops out of Iraq, and Iranian president Moumad Ahmadinejad refused to end his country’s nuclear development program. These were big stories that have an impact on the global community, but they too fell by the wayside as the media force-fed America the much less important Smith hearing.

The news media have a responsibility to inform the public. Instead of cashing in on the sensational, they should leave the live courtroom coverage to E! and give precedence to the truly important stories occurring in our country and around the world–the ones that will have serious implications for all of us. As unfortunate as it may be, Anna Nicole Smith is dead. Let’s hope the news media didn’t die with her.

On this weekend’s edition of “60 Minutes,” Simon Cowell tells Anderson Cooper that he regrets saying no to a Hollywood couple who wanted to pay him $100,000 for a private critique of their bedroom lovemaking.

If only Frederick Prinz von Anhalt had also been blessed with the wisdom to remain behind closed doors this week. The alleged second-youngest man in Anna Nicole’s life coughed up a new definition of German irony this week. Here’s a guy who, by many public accounts, is about as close to a royal bloodline as Minneapolis’ Prince Rogers Nelson (all von Anhalt did in 1980 was get adopted by a real princess and change his name to Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt), but this week he took exception to being called a “fraud” by FOX News host Bill O’Reilly, and this week filed a defamation lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court. By his own admission, von Anhalt married Za Zsa Gabor sfor friendship, not love; but for the love of Beverly Hills, at this point, it should be her slapping the prince, rather than him slapping O’Reilly with a lawsuit.”

Prinz von Anholt Submits DNA

On Saturday, ABC News reported that Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband provided a DNA sample Friday in the ongoing dispute about the paternity of Anna Nicole Smith’s infant daughter, and said he wanted to raise the child if he was the father. The ABC account went on to say:

“Frederic von Anhalt said he’s “almost sure” the test will prove he’s the father of 6-month-old Dannielynn. He says he carried on a decades-long affair with the former Playboy Playmate of the Year.

I’m almost sure the baby’s mine, almost sure,” von Anhalt, 59, said after having a cotton swab brushed along the inside of his mouth. He added he hopes to gain custody as soon as possible. “Oh yeah, if it’s my baby, it belongs in my home,” von Anhalt said. “I’m going to take good care of it. I will be a good father.”

A judge in the Bahamas on Tuesday ordered a DNA test on the girl at the request of Smith’s ex-boyfriend Larry Birkhead, who has also claimed paternity. Howard K. Stern, Smith’s companion, is listed as the father on the baby’s birth certificate.

Immediately after von Anhalt gave his sample at the Identigene Lab, his lawyer, Edward Lee, called on Stern, to do the same. Stern’s lawyer, James Neavitt, did not immediately return a call for comment.

Smith, 39, died Feb. 8 in a hotel room in Miami, but no cause has been given. Authorities plan to release autopsy results Monday.

Stern has been caring for the girl in the gated, waterfront home where he lived with Smith in the months before she died. The Bahamian courts have ordered Stern not to leave the country with the girl before a custody ruling.

The baby, whose full name is Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, could inherit millions from the estate of Smith’s late husband, J. Howard Marshall II. Smith had been fighting the Texas oil tycoon’s family over his estimated $500 million fortune since his death in 1995.

Von Anhalt acknowledged that his 90-year-old wife was angry after he announced last month that he could be Dannielynn’s father, but added that she has since forgiven him.

If it’s my daughter, it’s my daughter and Zsa Zsa can’t help but love her,” said von Anhalt, who uses the royal title prince, which he says was given to him by a German princess who adopted him.

On This Day in 1954: Senator Joseph McCarthy Began a Witch-Hunt of The U. S. Army

U. S. SENATOR JOSEPH McCARTHY: THE COMMUNIST WITCH-HUNT

EDWARD R. MORROW: MEDIA PIONEER

[ON] FREEDOM:

The Secretary of the United States Army ordered two generals, who had been subpoenaed by the crusading anti-Communist Senator Joseph McCarthy, to ignore the summons. The move by Robert T. Stevens came on the first day of the hearings into communist activity in the U. S. Army. Mr. Stevens said he would speak on behalf of the Army, provided that the session was held in public.

His announcement came after a former army major, who had been summoned by Senator McCarthy, head of the Senate’s Permanent Investigations sub-committee, refused to answer questions. Senator McCarthy responded, “Either the Army will give the names of men coddling Communists or we will take it before the Senate.”

However, Mr. Steven’s stand made it seem highly unlikely that such a list would be forthcoming. It was a rare challenge to the controversial Senator who had been virtually unknown before he took up the cause of rooting out Communists, just four years earlier. In a speech in West Virginia during February 1950, Mr. McCarthy had claimed to have the names of 205 “card-carrying Communists” in the State Department. However, he later scaled the list down to 57 persons and was willing to name only four of them. His critics have stated that he was never able to produce any real evidence to back up his claims, accusing him of having conducted wild “witch hunts,” which often destroyed both the careers and public lives of those persons who were accused.

Many have said that an interview conducted by the courageous television commentator Edward R. Murrow on March 9, 1954, was a pivotal influence leading to the demise of Senator McCarthy’s career, in turn helping to end the witch-hunt that had destroyed the careers and public lives of so many people. Some have said that this courageous broadcast provided the public with an essential, intensely felt sense of relief from our increasingly painful general preoccuptions with and fears of unannounced persecution. This kind of social relief is even today at the core of the fabric that both gives birth to and provides support for our public and private freedoms.

That night Murrow, Friendly (at that time, a Vice-President of CBS) and their news team produced a 30-minute See It Now special entitled “A Report on Senator Joseph McCarthy.” Murrow used excerpts from McCarthy’s own speeches and proclamations to criticize the Senator and to point out episodes where he clearly had contradicted himself. Murrow knew full well that he was using the medium of television to attack a single man and expose him to nationwide scrutiny, and he was often quoted as having doubts about the method he used for this news report.

Murrow and his See It Now co-producer, Fred Friendly, paid for their own newspaper advertisement for the program; they were not allowed to use any of CBS’s money for the publicity campaign and were prohibited from using the CBS logo in any way. Nonetheless, this 30-minute TV episode contributed to a nationwide backlash against Senator McCarthy and against the Red Scare in general. It has been viewed by many people as representing one of the most critical turning points in the history of the media.

The broadcast provoked tens of thousands of letters, telegrams and phone calls to CBS headquarters, which ran 15-to-1 in favor of Murrow. It has been reported that truck drivers would pull up to Murrow on the street in subsequent days and shout, “Good show, Ed. Good show, Ed.”

Murrow offered Senator McCarthy a chance to comment on the CBS show, and McCarthy provided his own televised response to Murrow three weeks later on See It Now. The Senator’s rebuttal contributed nearly as much to his own downfall as Murrow or any of McCarthy’s other detractors did. Edward R. Murrow had learned how to use the medium of television, but McCarthy had not.

Murrow’s conclusion to the program was truly magistral:

No one familiar with the history of this country can deny that congressional committees are useful. It is necessary to investigate before legislating, but the line between investigating and persecuting is a very fine one and the junior Senator from Wisconsin has stepped over it repeatedly. His primary achievement has been in confusing the public mind, as between internal and the external threats of Communism. We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men — not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular.

This is no time for men who oppose Senator McCarthy’s methods to keep silent, or for those who approve. We can deny our heritage and our history, but we cannot escape responsibility for the result. There is no way for a citizen of a republic to abdicate his responsibilities. As a nation we have come into our full inheritance at a tender age. We proclaim ourselves, as indeed we are, the defenders of freedom, wherever it continues to exist in the world, but we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.

The actions of the junior Senator from Wisconsin have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad, and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his. He didn’t create this situation of fear; he merely exploited it — and rather successfully. Cassius was right. “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.”
Good night, and good luck.

Zsa Zsa Gabor’s Husband Claims Paternity of Anna Nicole’s Baby

ZSA ZSA GABOR AND FREDERICK PRINZ VON ANHALT

The Telegraph (UK) reported today that Zsa Zsa Gabor’s wacky husband is suddenly claiming to be the father of Anna Nicole Smith’s baby:

“As if another was needed, the husband of Zsa Zsa Gabor added a further bizarre twist to the sudden death of the former Playboy model Anna Nicole Smith by claiming that he was the father of her baby daughter.

Two men are already fighting over the paternity of the five-month-old child, who could inherit a fortune because of her mother’s short-lived marriage to the late billionaire J. Howard Marshall III.

Yesterday, Frederick Prinz von Anhalt, 59, who has been married to Gabor for more than 20 years, said that neither Smith’s husband, Howard K Stern, nor her former boyfriend, Larry Birkhead, fathered young Dannielynn.  He said he conducted a decade-long affair with 39-year-old Smith.

If you go back from September, she wasn’t with one of those guys, she was with me,” von Anhalt told the Associated Press.

Gabor, the Hungarian-born film star, has been in declining health in recent years after being partially paralysed in a car crash and suffering a stroke.

Von Anhalt, who is Gabor’s eighth husband, was adopted by an elderly German princess from Anhalt in 1980.

He said he and Smith first met in New York in the 1990s when she was still married to Mr Marshall, the oil tycoon she met in a strip club when she was 26 and he was 89.

She was a very big fan of Zsa Zsa and wanted to be like Zsa Zsa.  She wanted to be a princess,” he said.

He said that Smith wanted him to make her a princess like his wife but that, short of divorcing Gabor, the only solution would have been to adopt Smith – which Gabor refused to allow.”

Other sources have also described von Anhalt’s outlandish claim:

“He said he never admitted the affair to his wife, but that he’s sure she knows.  She would sometimes answer the phone when Smith called him, von Anhalt said.

She was a very sexy woman,” von Anhalt said.  “To have an affair with her is the top, you know.”

Publicist Edward Lozzi, who said he handled publicity for Gabor when she was convicted of slapping a Beverly Hills police officer during a 1989 traffic stop, said he doubted von Anhalt’s claim, calling him a “chronic fabricator.”

There are some people who are married to famous people and take advantage of it,” said Lozzi, who said he dated Smith three times and spoke with her within the last year.

Both von Anhalt and John Blanchette, Gabor’s longtime publicist, said Lozzi was a hanger-on and never the family’s official publicist.

He’s the one taking advantage of it,” von Anhalt said.

Ronald Jason Palmieri, an attorney who has represented Gabor and von Anhalt for 15 years, was also skeptical about the paternity claim.

I have to believe my client, but it’s still surreal,” he told the Los Angeles Times.  “I would find it completely implausible that he is the father of that child, to put it lightly.”

Von Anhalt’s royal credentials have been the cause of speculation over the years.  According to stories in the British press, he was born Robert Lichtenberg, the son of a German policeman, and bought his title after being adopted as an adult by a bankrupt daughter-in-law of the last kaiser.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger: Baring All…Almost…

Arnold Schwarzenegger is a man whose a personality has always been driven to achieve international notoriety. Immediately after arriving in the United States, he curried the favors of anyone who could promote his ambitions, not infrequently extremely wealthy older men who were infatuated with his sturdy, muscular physique. Another champion of his hunger for fame was Robert Mapplethorpe, the openly gay, lascivious photographer who was infamous, in part, for his body of porn/art photography. Mapplethorpe, enamored of Schwarzenegger, was quick to become one of the growing group of people who lionized and fawned over Arnold. And Schwarzenegger was quick to nourish those feelings in order to further his own career. The motivation for this posting is not simply a prurient one. Rather, it is to provide an illustration of one man’s calculated, seductive enshrinement of the worship of Flesh and Muscle.
