Joe Biden’s Campaign Asks Networks to Stop Booking Rudy Giuliani

Two campaign officials sent a letter to the networks complaining that Giuliani is being allowed to spread falsehoods.

Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is asking the networks to stop booking Rudy Giuliani, writing in a letter that President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer “has made very clear that his only obligation is to protect Donald Trump, and that he will willingly lie to do so.”

In a letter to the networks, campaign officials Anita Dunn and Kate Bedingfield wrote the networks in the letter that “while you have been aggressive in pushing back on him in real time, it is well known that the dedicated liar always has the advantage, pushing out outlandish falsehoods and disinformation in the knowledge that it is hard for the corrections to catch up. Giving Rudy Giuliani valuable time on your air to push these lies in the first place is a disservice to your audience and a disservice to journalism.”

“I actually genuinely do not believe we would be sitting here today if you hadn’t entered the show that year,” Cowell said. “The whole premise of the show was we had to find a star who was gonna sell records. We found some great people that whole year but when you delivered that moment on that first live show, when you sang that winning song at the end-“

Q&A: Lucie Arnaz reflects on ‘I Love Lucy’ as TV sitcom hits big screen | WTOP

Get ready for TV’s most influential sitcom as Fathom Events and CBS Home Entertainment present “I Love Lucy: A Colorized Celebration” in theaters nationwide on Tuesday to mark Lucille Ball’s birthday.

It’s your chance to laugh at colorized versions of the beloved sitcom, starring Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley. Attendees will receive an “I Love Lucy” poster.

“It’s never been on the big screen,” Lucie Arnaz, daughter of Ball and Desi Arnaz, told WTOP. “My brother and I don’t own ‘I Love Lucy.’ My mother and father sold that show to CBS back in the ’50s. We share in the merchandising rights, which is fun and God knows put my children through college, but because we’re in a nice partnership with CBS, this is all very celebratory. … Any time you can bring in a new generation to appreciate that show, it’s a good thing.”
