    I love when Molly Shannon has a complex role. She has an incredibly tragic personal story. She was in the car when her alcoholic father caused a car accident that killed her mother and sister. She basically had to raise herself. She's someone I root for. I think she's a kind soul and always fascinating.

    Washington Post’s David Fahrenthold wins Pulitzer Prize for dogged reporting of Trump’s philanthropy

    By Paul Farhi April 10 at 3:05 PM

    Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold remembers being struck by Donald Trump’s pledge to donate $6 million, including $1 million of his personal funds, to veteran groups during a televised fundraiser before the Iowa caucuses early last year. Did Trump follow through, he wondered? So, weeks after the event, Fahrenthold started asking questions.

    For several months, he found, the answer was no, despite assurances to the contrary from Trump’s campaign. When Trump finally made the donation in late May the reporter set off on a broader inquiry. In a detailed series of articles, he found that many of Trump’s philanthropic claims over the years had been exaggerated, and often weren’t truly charitable activities at all.

    On Monday, Fahrenthold’s investigative digging was rewarded with the Pulitzer Prize, journalism’s most prestigious award. His work documenting the future president’s charitable practices won the award for national reporting.

    Fahrenthold’s Pulitzer-winning package of stories also included his article disclosing that Trump had made crude comments and bragged about groping women during an unaired portion of an interview on “Access Hollywood” in 2005.

    The story, a result of an anonymous tip, proved to be one of the most consequential and widest read in the history of campaign reporting; it led to calls for Trump to drop out of the race just weeks before Election Day. The article and accompanying video also prompted two apologies from Trump — who called his comments “locker-room banter” — and inspired some of the themes of worldwide women’s protest marches that drew millions the day after Trump was inaugurated in January.

    Fahrenthold’s prizewinning reporting was a follow-the-money tale that combined dogged reporting — he personally called 450 charitable organizations to ask them whether Trump had ever donated funds — with the creative use of social media, especially Twitter, to “crowdsource” the public’s collective knowledge of people and events.

    In the process, Post editor Martin Baron said Fahrenthold, 39, “reimagined” investigative reporting. Traditionally, Baron noted, reporters have kept their work “secret and guarded” until they’ve developed enough information to publish. Fahrenthold instead shared his progress on stories via Twitter and openly asked readers for tips and information that guided his work. Baron noted that this process now has a name: “the Fahrenthold method.”

    In one of several memorable examples, Fahrenthold, who joined The Post as an intern in 2000, posted images of the handwritten list of charities he’d contacted to ask whether Trump had ever contributed to them (almost none said he had). He asked readers for names of other likely recipients, receiving dozens of suggestions.

    With the assistance of Post researcher Alice Crites, Fahrenthold found that Trump hadn’t donated any of his own money to the Donald J. Trump Foundation since 2008. Instead, he had solicited funds from others. He further discovered that the foundation wasn’t registered to make such solicitations, as required by New York state law. The revelation prompted authorities in New York to order the foundation to suspend further fundraising.

    He also found several instances in which the future president had spent funds from the foundation to buy things for himself and his for-profit companies, potentially violating laws against “self dealing” by a charitable entity.

    Trump appeared to do so with some frequency. Fahrenthold revealed that he had purchased former National Football League player Tim Tebow’s helmet and jersey for $12,000 in 2012 and two massive portraits of himself for $30,000, all with the foundation’s money and all without apparent charitable intent.

    In addition, he found that Trump had used $258,000 of the foundation’s money to settle lawsuits that involved his private, for-profit businesses. That included a lawsuit by a golfer who claimed Trump had reneged on a $1 million prize in a hole-in-one contest at one of Trump’s golf clubs in 2010. Trump settled with the golfer: The golf club paid nothing. The charity paid $158,000.

    The foundation also gave $25,000 in 2013 to a political group supporting Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R). The donation came around the time Bondi’s office was considering whether to join a multistate fraud investigation against Trump University in behalf of Florida residents. Bondi eventually decided not to join the effort.

    Using Twitter, Fahrenthold asked the public for help in tracking down a four-foot-tall painting of Trump that Trump had purchased with $10,000 of his foundation’s money in 2014. Readers responded by finding a photo of the painting posted on the travel website The painting had apparently been hung at a Trump-owned club in the Miami area.

    An anchor for Univision, Enrique Acevedo, eventually found the painting, fueling another Fahrenthold story. Acevedo reserved a room at the resort and asked workers there if they had seen the portrait. They directed him to a closed-up bar; Acevedo asked another worker, in Spanish, if he could look inside. He found the painting hanging on a wall of the bar.

    The charity stories elevated Fahrenthold’s profile so high that he became the recipient of an unsolicited tip on the morning of Oct. 7. The still unnamed caller — only Fahrenthold, Baron and another Post editor know his or her identity — directed Fahrenthold to a bombshell: the unaired video clip of Trump bragging to “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush that his celebrity status enabled him to “grab [women] by the p---y.”

    The publication of the video and Fahrenthold’s story instantly shook up the presidential race.

    “The power of it was to hear Trump’s voice,” Fahrenthold said of the clip. “If it had just been a transcript or a summary, it wouldn’t have had the same impact. But to hear it and see it made it horrifying.”

    While Trump remained generally silent in the face of Fahrenthold’s continued revelations, the then-president-elect announced just before Christmas that he would shut down his foundation (it technically remains open while the New York attorney general’s office continues its investigation).

    The thrust of his reporting, Fahrenthold said, was to examine whether Trump was as honest or as generous as he had long claimed. “I hope I gave people a sense of the moral dimension” of a presidential candidate, he said. “He said he was very generous. [The stories asked] did he really do that?”

    Baron, who urged Fahrenthold to stay on the Trump charity beat once the initial controversy about the Iowa fundraiser had died down at midyear, says the reporter “never took things at face value.”

    He added: “There’s an old line in journalism that says if your mother says she loves you, check it out. David’s work was in that spirit.”

    'Handmaid's Tale,' 'This Is Us' and 'Atlanta' Lead 2017 TV Critic Awards Nominations
    10:00 AM 6/19/2017 by Kate Stanhope
    Carrie Coon also received a first-ever double nomination for her performances in 'The Leftovers' and 'Fargo.'

    Hulu grabbed its first-ever TCA award nomination Monday thanks to The Handmaid's Tale. Along with This Is Us, and Atlanta, Handmaid's Tale led the nominations for the 2017 Television Critics Association award nominations, with four apiece including the prestigious program of the year.

    In that category, the three series will compete against Big Little Lies, Stranger Things and The Leftovers.

    Big Little Lies and Stranger Things each scored three nominations, as did Feud: Bette and Joan and The Good Place.

    On the performer side, Carrie Coon made history with her double nomination for individual achievement in drama, the first ever at the TCA Awards, for her performances in Fargo and The Leftovers.

    "This was truly a landmark season for diversity in television, and the TCA nominations reflect this. Our members have chosen a variety of series that celebrate and represent a wide spectrum of performances,” said TCA president and THR contributor Amber Dowling. “With so many great programs—both new and returning—it was a real challenge for our members to whittle these nominees down. We're excited to see which programs and performers make the cut as voting now gets underway to determine the TV standouts of the 2016-17 season.”

    The awards are voted on by television critics across the country. Winners for the 33rd annual TCA Awards will be announced Saturday, Aug. 5, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills during the TCA summer press tour. Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth is set to host this year's ceremony, where the career achievement and Heritage award winners will also be announced.

    NOVEMBER 3, 2017 / 4:56 PM / UPDATED 13 MINUTES AGO
    Country music awards show reverses ban on questions about Vegas shooting
    Reuters Staff

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Country Music Association (CMA) on Friday reversed a ban on journalists asking questions at its annual awards show about last month’s Las Vegas mass shooting, hours after singer Brad Paisley criticized the rules as “ridiculous.”

    In media guidelines issued earlier this week, the CMA asked reporters not to focus their coverage of the Nov. 8 awards show red carpet on “the Las Vegas tragedy, gun rights, political affiliations or topics of the like.” It said credentials could be revoked for any media doing so.

    A lone gunman shooting from a hotel window killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more when he opened fire on 20,000 fans at an outdoor country music festival in Las Vegas on Oct. 1 in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

    On Friday, the CMA lifted, and apologized for, the restrictions, saying in a statement the “sentiment was not to infringe and was created with the best of intentions to honor and celebrate Country Music.”

    “Bravo CMA awards for doing the right thing & apologizing for this mistake. All are welcome, let’s have a great show,” Paisley tweeted.

    The country music star, who is co-hosting Wednesday’s show in Nashville, had earlier tweeted, “I‘m sure the CMA will do the right thing and rescind these ridiculous and unfair press guidelines. In 3...2....1......”

    Singer Ryan Adams had joked on Twitter that approved topics at the ceremony might include “Wagon Wheels, Bacon, repurposed barn wood, (and) cussin’ at snakes.”

    Singers Jason Aldean, Jake Owen and Chris Young were among the musicians either on stage in Las Vegas when the shooting broke out, or watching the show.

    Caleb Keete, a guitarist with the Josh Abbott Band, said in October that the shooting had caused him to change his stance on gun control after being a lifelong supporter of the right to bear arms.

    The CMA awards, one of the biggest celebrations of country music in the United States, will air live from Nashville on ABC television on Wednesday.
