‘Divide and Conquer’: How the Cult of Roger Ailes Continues to Rule Fox News

Jake Chessum/Magnolia Pictures

In the preface to her new memoir Becoming, former First Lady Michelle Obama recalls smiling for photos with people who “call my husband horrible names on national television, but still want a framed keepsake for their mantel.”

One of those people, we learn toward the end of director Alexis Bloom’s new documentary Divide and Conquer, was Roger Ailes.

As former Fox News host and current CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota tells it, she was in line behind Ailes and his wife Elizabeth at the annual White House Christmas party, waiting to take photos with President Obama and the first lady. She peeked around the curtain and watched as Obama spotted the Fox News president and said, “Roger Ailes, the most powerful man in media.” And yet the next day, Ailes was telling everyone at Fox headquarters that Obama had called him “the most powerful man in the world.”

Johnny Was Continues Growth Push With Swim

Johnny Was has launched into swim in a move outlined a little over a year ago by its chief executive officer, who is looking to grow the business through new categories and store expansion.
Private equity firm Endeavour Capital a little more than three years ago invested in the business, which was founded in 1987, with the new capital fueling this latest growth strategy.
The latest example of this is Friday’s launch of swimwear for resort 2019. The offering will be rolled out to some 150 specialty stores in addition to Neiman Marcus, which is serving as the exclusive luxury major partner for the launch.
The 25-piece collection, which is being produced in-house rather than through a licensing firm, offers sizes up to 3X. That’s the same ceiling as the ready-to-wear line. Retail pricing ranges from $ 88 to $ 298.
The extension into swim was an obvious one for the brand, which has built a business around color, print and embroidery, said vice president of wholesale sales and merchandising Meg Doepke.
“Our customers have been asking us to do that for years and we did see a void in the market for colorful, flattering swimwear that fits real women, but doesn’t look too matronly,” Doepke went

Destination XL Cuts Losses in Quarter as CEO Search Continues

The corporate restructuring instituted earlier this year is starting to pay off for Destination XL Group.
In the third quarter, the men’s big & tall retailer cut its losses and improved its comparable-store sales, prompting it to update its earnings guidance for the fiscal year. But its search for a new chief executive officer continues as the countdown to the departure of current chief David Levin approaches on Dec. 31. In the case that the retailer can’t find a replacement by year-end, Levin will transition to acting ceo from Jan. 1-April 30 for $ 200,000 a month.
The retailer said that it terminated its deal with Heidrick & Struggles International Inc. to lead the search process on Oct. 1 and is now working with Russell Reynolds Associates to lead the process and expects a successor to be named by the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2019.
As reported, Levin is expected to resign as an officer and director of the company on Jan. 1. The company expects to incur an aggregate charge of approximately $ 2.1 million for ceo transition costs in fiscal 2018 and an additional $ 1.6 million in fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2020.
Turning to the third quarter, the retailer cut its

iPhone XR vs. Galaxy Note 9 speed test: Apple continues to impress

iPhone XR vs. Galaxy Note 9

On paper, the iPhone XR shouldn’t put up much of a fight against the Galaxy Note 9 when it comes to speed. After all, Samsung’s latest oversized flagship has 8GB of RAM compared to the iPhone XR’s paltry 3GB, but the internet won’t ever be satisfied with assumptions. Therefore, PhoneBuff on YouTube decided to pit the two 2018 phones against each other in a speed test. But does Apple’s “budget” phone even stand a chance?

Paula Abdul Falls Off Stage Mid-Performance, Continues to Sing

The show must go on. Paula Abdul handled a stage snafu like a true professional on Saturday, October 20, after she tumbled off the stage mid-concert.

Fan video captured the former Laker girl, 56, tumbling into the crowd after she ventured a bit too close to the edge of the stage during a performance of “The Promise of a New Day” at Hard Rock Live in Biloxi, Mississippi. An inaudible gasp could be heard from the concertgoers as she slipped and fell and fans nearby tried to catch her.

TMZ reports that the songstress, who was wearing a glittery minidress with ruffles and sky-high pumps, took the fall like a champ, returning to the stage to continue on with the rest of her show. A video posted on Twitter by another fan showed her closing out her concert by telling fans that she will be “forever be your girl.”

It is unclear if Abdul, who is currently in the midst of her Straight Up Paula! 2018 tour, suffered any injuries as a result of the incident. The former American Idol judge previously revealed that she suffers from reflex sympathetic dystrophy, a disorder of the sympathetic nervous system with symptoms that include chronic pain.

The fall is the second mishap since the tour began in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Thursday, October 18 — the Grammy winner was unable to perform at her second stop in Lake Charles, Louisiana, due to what she claimed was the venue of Golden Nugget Lake Charles’ inability “to accommodate” her stage and show.

Us Weekly has reached out to the location for comment.

“I am devastated that tonight’s show cannot take place due to an unexpected venue production issue that we learned about once we arrived,” she wrote on Instagram on Friday, October 19. “As you know I’ve been working tirelessly to make this show a memorable experience for you all. I am looking forward to continuing the tour as planned. You have no idea how excited I am to get on stage for all of you. I love you all so much — thank you!! Xo P.”

The Straight Up Paula! 2018 tour is scheduled to run through March 30, 2019.

#CancelKavanaugh Continues: Sexual Assault Survivors Aren’t Done Rising Up

This Thursday marked one week since Dr. Christine Blasey Ford courageously testified before the Senate Judiciary committee about the night she alleges that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when she was just 15. To honor her powerful testimony, Women’s March organized a day of action on October 4, calling on Senators to #CancelKavanaugh.

In Washington, D.C., thousands came together to show solidarity with sexual assault survivors, declare that they believed Kavanaugh’s multiple accusers and insist that he be rejected for a lifetime appointment to the nation’s highest Court. Activists came to the nation’s capital via coordinated transportation from major cities including Boston and New York; they marched from Terry Courthouse, where Kavanaugh currently sits on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, to the Supreme Court, where they made noise and demanded to be heard.

That day of action, however, also marked the release of an incomplete FBI investigation. In response, Women’s March stunned the nation by packing the Hart Senate building with over 1,000 activists from all over the country. The halls echoed with voices shouting a consistent chant: “Believe survivors.”

Later that night, feminist leaders and organizations staged an all-night People’s Filibuster outside of the Capitol Building, organized by Indivisible. Speakers including Senators Nancy Pelosi, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Christopher Murphy and John Lewis joined advocates like Feminist Majority president Eleanor Smeal to demand dignity for survivors.

Smaller events were also organized on the spot in other cities and on college campuses.

The report’s release was followed, today, by a floor vote on the Senate advancing Kavanaugh’s nomination—and now, what began as a single protest has become a days-long feminist marathon of activism.

Today, activists continued to come together on Capitol Hill, including celebrities like Amy Schumer (once featured on the cover of Ms.!), who was arrested along with over 300 other protestors during demonstrations at the Capitol as Senators voted this morning.

After Senator Joe Manchin voted to advance Kavanaugh today, protestors swarmed his office. A crowd of survivors were arrested outside of Senator Jeff Flake’s office for protesting his own vote to advance Kavanaugh.

As the Senate casts their final votes on his nomination tomorrow, the protests will continue.

Feminist Majority will be leading rallies in Tuscon and Phoenix. They’re aiming to appeal to Senator Jeff Flake, who insisted on an investigation when approving Kavanaugh to advance out of committee but said in a statement today that he intends to vote “yes” tomorrow. Events will also take place in cities across the country as part of the #CancelKavanaugh movement. (If you can’t take to the streets before the Senate vote, you can still make your voice heard.)

Regardless of how this fight ends, feminists have made clear that they’re not going silently into the night—and that they will remember this moment in November, and for years to come. The historic activism that has emerged since Blasey Ford came forward has forced the entire country to reckon with its rape culture, and women will continue to shatter silence around violence in the wake of her courageous testimony.
