Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle 2/4/2014 – the Politicizing and Glamourizing of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Tragic Death
Philip Seymour Hoffman’s shocking death has brought the pundits, journalists and famle throwers out of the woodwork, using this tragedy for their own purposes. Jerry and I offer a different perspective. As he rightly says, “Addiction has no zip code or Party.” Give a listen…

The shocking death of Philip Seymour Hoffman of a drug overdose has understandably sent many scrambling to make sense of yet another artist falling to addiction. Esquire Magazine’s Tom Junod has waded into treacherous waters in his attempt at tribute to this most talented actor. The result is a shock to the system that I can’t imagine would bring anything but pain to his long-time...

Yet another gifted artist was lost to us to soon as 46-year-old actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his Manhattan apartment of an apparent drug overdose this weekend. According to CBS News, he had stayed clean for 23 years but in 2012, was once again battling addiction. His work as an actor was truly memorable in such films as “Capote,” for which he won...

Women represent 53% of the voting electorate. Vital as it is for Republicans to gain female votes in 2014, their need will reach critical mass in the 2016 Presidential election. Despite a 100-page RNC post-mortem prescribing greater outreach, rather than heed that advice, today’s Republican Party continues to shoot itself in the foot with offensive remarks and legislative actions that flout their aims. Continued male...

In our discussion about women in leadership and the obstacles that still remain, Jerry, ever gracious, wanted me to respond to a few listeners who accuse me of merely being a “shill” for Hillary. While the word frosted my bananas, it was good to have an opportunity to answer. The empowerment of women is something that affects all of us. Keeping women out of leadership holds...

Republicans fearful of Secretary Clinton contesting for the Presidency in 2016 are falling over themselves to define her early, trotting out tired ageist, sexist attacks while screaming “Benghazi” 24/7. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is their best hope to defeat her. While he works overtime to tamp down the “Bridge-gate” scandal that threatens his presidential hopes, RNC Chair Reince Priebus and others shout “she’s inauthentic”, she represents the...

A wide ranging segment discussing not only the trumped up news story about Hillary Clinton’s alleged “hit list” but also Maria Shriver’s report about the clock turning back on women….a blast of an interview! Enjoy.

Chris Christie’s political hopes took a hit last week as the burgeoning “Bridge-Gate” scandal painted him and those in his inner circle as bullies who will exact ugly retribution from a political foe. Prior to that, big media, in their unending polling parlor game, had already decided Christie was the Republican best positioned to beat Hillary Clinton in 2016. No sooner did he apologize his...

The eminently qualified Janet Yellen was confirmed yesterday as our first female Fed Chair, albeit by the narrowest margin in Senate history. The vote, 56-26, reflects 18 missing Senators who had trouble returning to cast a ballot due to current horrid weather conditions around the country. Democrats who were present numbered 45 and all voted for Dr. Yellen, joined by 11 Republicans. It is the 26 Republican holdouts...

Did a couple of fun segments on The Jerry Doyle Show yesterday, talking everything from holiday downtime, nurturing yourself and flu remedies before segueing into the politics of spin-meisters, big media flame-throwers who contribute to voter brainwashing and the positive ramifications of Janet Yellen’s appointment as the first female fed chair. Listen and enjoy! **
