Glenn Beck Leaving NY, Developing New "Research Department"

Filed under: Media MinutePolitik

glenn beck leaving ny and starting research department

We're not sure exactly how we feel about this…

Earlier this month, we learned that the ever-polarizing Glenn Beck would be phasing out his show on Fox and stepping down as host.

Now, Glenn Beck has announced that he'll be leaving New York, moving out of his Connecticut mansion, and developing a new "research department" with retired CIA and military.

Here's what he had to say about it:

“What you are about to see in a few months is a new way to communicate with each other. [I'm going to] build a way to deliver news directly to the youth of America.”

"I will be leaving New York City. As we build a new media I’m not building it in New York."

We are very skeptical about this, as we're sure is the case with plenty of you out there.

…Maybe we were better off when he was preaching to the world from Fox. Guess we'll find out soon…

What do U think about Glenn Beck's cryptic announcement?

We're Not In The Town, Anymore! Ben Affleck In Talks To Direct Iran Thriller

ben affleck in talks for iran thriller

Looks like Ben Affleck's directing job on The Town gave him some serious points with Warner Bros, cause they've got another project for him…a bigger one.

Affleck is currently in talks with WB to direct Argo, a political thriller set up by George Clooney and his producing partner, Grant Heslov.

The project is based on a Wired Magazine article, and it's about a "stranger-than-fiction CIA rescue operation during the occupation of the American embassy in Tehran in 1979, when six U.S. diplomats were held hostage."

As it happened, the CIA set up a plan where a fake "Hollywood film crew" would go on location in Iran…but really they'd be there to rescue captives from the country.

Sounds exciting to us! And given Affleck's track record with acting directing, we're thinking he could be a very solid choice for this project.

Are U intrigued by this project? Do U think Ben Affleck's directing skillz will do the story justice?

Claire Danes May Nab Lead In Showtime Pilot

Filed under: TV NewsClaire Danes

Angela Chase Claire Danes is coming back to T.V.!

Sources are confirming that Claire is in talks to star in a new Showtime pilot, Homeland. From the minds of 24 comes a new government thriller about CIA case officer Carrie Anderson, who would be played by Claire, who looks into threats made by the Middle East to homeland security.

The show gets juicy as Claire's character learns that a POW just returned from Baghdad has actually been turned and will be leading the next big terrorist attack on the country. The series would chronicle her efforts to expose the truth.

Good stuff! We always thought there should be a female equivalent to Jack Bauer! Except we bet she is going to get to see a lot more carnage, being on Showtime and all.

Think U might tune in for this?

M.I.A. Debuts Album Cover

Is this your way of saying that the CIA controls YouTube too, bb??

BLECK.

Check out M.I.A.'s new cover art for her upcoming album, /\/\/\Y/\, which is apparently just a super nonconformist way to spell her name, Maya!

Hardcore! LOLz.

And since she's such an artist, we're going to assume that all the YouTube video control bars blocking her face are alluding to her Born Free video being censored!

Maybe they decided to forgo aesthetically pleasing visuals to focus on the message!

Lameballs.

M.I.A. Is Kinda Crazy! Attacks Google And Facebook

Filed under: PolitikM.I.A.Tech Talk

Never one to shy away from controversy!

M.I.A. has recently taken a stand against websites Google and Facebook, claiming that they're owned by the CIA and used as a means to monitoring the public!

She says:

“Anybody who is called the government is right. And anybody who isn’t called the government is not right… And you know, all governments are connected to Google, and all governments can shift their search engines so only what they want you to see comes up… I want kids to be aware of this digital circumstance… Everyone on the Internet is like, “Oh my God, come and join Facebook!” They’re all so optimistic… and really, everyone is fucking you up behind the screens. And I don’t like that. It makes it difficult for me to interact with my fans knowing that. Google and Facebook were developed by the CIA, and when you’re on there, you have to know that.”

Wow! Pretty serious stuff! And here we were thinking that the only use for Facebook was Farmville and posting unflattering pictures of drunk sorority girls!

What do U think?? Is she right or is this just a crazy conspiracy theory??
