Bob Garfield, co-host of New York Public Radio’s program “On the Media,” was fired on Monday for violating the station’s anti-bullying policy, WNYC said in a statement. The move came “following a recent investigation conducted by an outside investigator that found that he had violated the policy.” The station added that Garfield was the subject of another investigation last year, “which also found that he had violated the policy, and which resulted in disciplinary action, a warning about the potential consequences if the behavior continued, and a meaningful opportunity to correct it.” In an email to The New York Times, Garfield wrote, “I was fired not for ‘bullying’ per se but for yelling at two meetings … In both cases, as will be clear eventually, the provocation was extraordinary and simply shocking.” He added that the 2020 investigation also involved yelling that “involved gross insubordination under production pressure.” Brooke Gladstone will continue on as host and managing editor of “On the Media,” WNYC said. Bob Garfield hosted “On the Media” for 20 years and also hosts the podcast “The Genius Dialogues.” Read original story ‘On the Media’ Co-Host Bob Garfield Fired Over Accusations of Bullying At TheWrap

It is yet another new day in Hollywood. The streaming era, combined with a pandemic that dramatically condensed plans, has irreversibly shaken the ground under the industry as rivals are quickly becoming bedfellows in what is increasingly becoming a game of scale. WarnerMedia and Discovery are just the latest to realize they can’t take on Netflix and Disney alone, which itself realized they can’t take on Netflix alone when they bought 21st Century Fox. In this latest deal, WarnerMedia and Discovery have leapfrogged other competitors. “Discovery-WarnerMedia is now the alpha in streaming,” one top agent told TheWrap. “As it is, $20 billion in content spending, higher than Netflix’s $17 billion, along with having infinitely better IP.” Combined, the two will create an entertainment juggernaut that includes Warner Bros., CNN, Turner, Discovery’s stable of nonfiction networks — as well as two competing streaming services, Discovery+ and HBO Max. The deal also combines WarnerMedia’s U.S. sports rights, such as the NBA, MLB and March Madness, with Discovery international sports giant Eurosport. But while the deal will eventually create a powerhouse that is bigger than just about everyone not named Disney, some in the industry argue that it threatens to stop any momentum...Read original story How Discovery-WarnerMedia Merger Will Force Hollywood to Get Bigger or Go Home At TheWrap
Caddies will be allowed to use laser distance-measuring devices for the first time at a top-level tournament at this week's PGA Championship but one caddie said the introduction of the gadget will be "much ado about nothing". The devices, known as rangefinders, have been around for 25 years and are generally allowed in amateur tournaments. The PGA of America hopes it will speed up play at this week's major championship but many critics believe most caddies will continue to rely on traditional yardage books, just as they have done for decades.

SAN SALVADOR (Reuters) -A U.S. State Department report on Central American officials "credibly alleged" to be corrupt includes a member of Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele's cabinet and a former minister, according to an extract of the document leaked on Monday. A U.S. congressional aide told Reuters that the document circulating in El Salvador media was accurate.

More than a week of fighting between Israel and Hamas showed few signs of abating on Tuesday despite intense U.S. and global diplomacy to stop the region's fiercest hostilities in years.

Gaza health officials put the Palestinian death toll at 212, including 61 children and 36 women, since hostilities began last week.

Just ask Jason Kilar how fast things can change in Hollywood. The WarnerMedia chief, just days after The Wall Street Journal profiled his “script for a new Hollywood,” is already negotiating his exit, following AT&T’s decision on Monday to offload its media business to Discovery in a merger. His glory days leading the legacy Hollywood studio into the age of streaming are officially numbered. Kilar’s expected exit comes just 13 months after he was hired to lead WarnerMedia and help HBO Max, its nascent streaming service, compete with giants like Netflix and Disney+. His year on the job was a whirlwind — even without factoring in the global pandemic — as Kilar made several landmark personnel and business decisions that reshaped the company. But those same decisions led to internal friction, industry skepticism and ultimately his departure. First, let’s get to the main question that’s probably on the minds of many: how much is he going to get on his way out the door? Kilar can expect to walk away with $14.9 million, according to Eric Hoffman, a vice president at Farient Advisors LLC., a compensation consulting firm. That includes $1.25 million in salary, about $2 million in bonuses, and...Read original story The Brief Rise and Fall of Jason Kilar, WarnerMedia’s $15 Million Soon-To-Be-Ex-CEO At TheWrap
