Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered,” while discussing the possibility of Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton being indicted as a result of the current FBI investigation into her handling of classified material on an unsecured email server during her tenure as secretary of state, Fox News senior political contributor Brit Hume said there were enough questions about the circumstances of Clinton’s case that an indictment isn’t a slam dunk.

He made a shock comeback as Ali G during the Academy Awards on Sunday evening.
But Sacha Baron Cohen has now admitted he was banned from appearing as his controversial alter-ego during the ceremony and was scheduled to present an award as himself.
The 44-year-old joker confessed he enlisted his wife Isla Fisher’s help to sneak his famous costume into the glittering event in order to keep his appearance a surprise.
But other causes were entirely manmade. In hindsight, it is clear that for almost two decades (approximately 1988 — 2004) multiple groups of climate “scientists” have been fabricating results in parallel, unaware that others were doing the same. Mann with his hockey stick got the most fame, but he was just one among many. Computer models, descriptions of the carbon cycle, and even instrumental temperature records were forged to exaggerate climate sensitivity to carbon dioxide, to hide past climate variations, to argue that carbon dioxide release is irreversible, etc. The environmental movement, encouraging and encouraged by this perversion of science, made global warming its central theme. And so did many mainstream politicians. Al Gore was the towering figure among them. He used his two terms as vice president to gut American science, replacing scientists with environmentalists and lawyers (see the book Politicizing Science: The Alchemy of Policymaking, which contains essays by William Happer, Bernard Cohen, Patrick Michaels, Fred Singer and other scientists who experienced or witnessed this process). A vicious spiral developed: alarmist politicians handpicked scientists supporting the alarm, then they believed their claims, and so it went. A hardened core of climate alarmism was formed from such politicians and their quasi-scientists. This core attracted multiple layers of followers, ranging from ordinary profiteers and leftist extremists to totally innocent duped believers.
In addition to his acting work, Leonardo DiCaprio has devoted himself to climate change advocacy, funding eco projects and speaking at gatherings like the UN climate summit in 2014. But secretly, RadarOnline.com has learned, recent charges that he is a “hypocrite” could hold some weight: According to newly leaked Sony emails, the actor happily availed himself of more than $200,000 worth of private jet travel in just six weeks in 2014.
At the 88th Academy Awards, “Spotlight,” the film about the Boston Globe’s investigation into priest abuse, won for best picture. Leonardo DiCaprio, heavily favored to win for lead actor, was not disappointed in his fifth chance to take home an Oscar for acting. His director, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, had just gotten his second directing win in a row for “The Revenant.” The film came into the night with the most nominations at 12 and won three.
Hollywood insiders who weren’t that enamored of Stallone as a person over his few decades in show business
She’s traded in her Daisy Dukes for a classic little black dress.
Jessica Simpson showed off her ample cleavage in a revealing skintight dress, featuring a lace up neckline.
The 35-year-old wore the daring frock while on the way to a private party in Beverly Hills on Saturday with her husband, Eric Johnson, 36.
Here is something I never thought I would write in my lifetime: CNN’s handling of the Republican debates has been infinitely more professional, unbiased, and fair than Fox News. It’s not even close. If you go back and look at the debates, CNN’s Jake Tapper and Wolf Blitzer have out-classed Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace, and Bret Baier by a wide margin.
