  • US troops on Ukrainian soil could reignite fighting: Moscow

    Russia on Friday warned that the arrival of US paratroopers in Ukraine to train its forces fighting pro-Russian rebels could reignite the conflict, leading to mass bloodshed. It warned that the US training programme was a step towards Washington supplying weaponry to the Ukrainians fighting pro-Russian separatists in the country's Donbass region. "Washington's encouraging attitude to (Kiev's) revanchist plans carries a risk of reigniting mass bloodshed in our neighbouring country," Moscow said.

  • After 53-year run, Univision to end 'Sabado Gigante'

    (Reuters) - Univision Network will have a giant hole in its Saturday night line-up - "Sabado Gigante," its top-rated variety show, will be going off the air after a record-breaking 53 years, the broadcaster said on Friday. Created and hosted by Chile-born Don Francisco since 1962, "Sabado Gigante," or "Giant Saturday," is the No. 1 rated show on Saturday night among U.S. Hispanics and is the longest running TV variety show in the world, according to Guinness World Records. With its mix of humor, talent contests, family reunions, celebrities and musical acts packed into a frenetically paced three-hour program, "Sabado Gigante" has been a staple of television throughout Latin America, as well as an object of scorn for intellectuals and comedians. The last show will run on Sept. 19 this year and Don Francisco, whose real name is Mario Kreutzberger, will host entertainment specials and help develop on-air talent at the Miami-based network, which took on "Sabado Gigante" 30 years ago.

  • AMC Has Found Its Preacher

    Can I get an "amen"? AMC's in-development adaptation of the beloved comic Preacher has cast its lead, booking Dominic Cooper to wear the collar of Rev. Jesse Custer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Marvel fans will surely recognize Cooper, as he played Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger and on Marvel's Agent Carter. The actor's other credits include Need for Speed, Dracula Untold, and Fleming. Here's a Preacher breakdown for those of you who weren't into the comics: Jesse Custer is a troubled preacher with a taste for the bottle. But after losing his faith, he embarks on a quest to find God, literally, and discovers that the big guy has abandoned his post in heaven. Custer travels around with his girlfriend Tulip and drunken Irish vampire friend Cassidy tagging along, using Custer's strange new power to spread a new word. And the story is actually even weirder than I just made it sound. AMC ordered a pilot for Preacher in December. The series is being developed by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin, and already has Lucy Griffiths, Joseph Gilgun, and Ruth Negga in its cast. Do you like this casting?

  • Oklahoma City federal building bombing – April 19, 1995 (37 photos)

    On April 19, 1995, a pair of former U.S. Army soldiers parked a rented Ryder truck packed with explosives outside a federal building in Oklahoma City. The blast killed 168 people and injured more than 500 others, and the attack is the worst homegrown terror attack on American soil. The bombing came only two years after the first attack on the World Trade Center. Former U.S. soldier Timothy McVeigh was convicted on 11 counts of murder, conspiracy and using a weapon of mass destruction in the blast, and was later executed. The other ex-soldier, Terry Nichols, was convicted on similar charges and sentenced to life without parole, because the jury deadlocked on the death penalty. The two were motivated by contempt for government, the hatred sharpened by the 1993 federal raid on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas.

  • Source: ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Provoked by Towing Company Employee

    There's two sides to every story... and while ESPN's Britt McHenry might not be able to talk about her now viral Easter Sunday towing experience thanks to a week-long suspension, another source is speaking up. McHenry was suspended for a week after surveillance video of her berating a towing company employee went public, but a source tells ET that the women in the video also provoked the Washington D.C.-based sports reporter during the April 5 incident. In the video, McHenry is seen making comments about the woman's weight and other employees' lack of education. "Do you feel good about your job?" she asks at one point. "So I could be a college dropout and do the same thing? Why, 'cause I have a brain and you don't?" PHOTOS: 8 Celeb Feuds That Just Won't Die However, according to a source, the Advanced Towing employee was "rude, dismissive and taunting," and the tape released is "highly edited" to show only McHenry in an unflattering light. For example, her dig to "lose some weight, baby girl" was allegedly a response to the employee telling her to "fix your roots." McHenry did tweet about the incident on April 6, writing in a now-deleted post, "Just got towed after eating dinner at an establishment in Arlington. How corrupt is Advanced Towing?" Advanced Towing Company, LLC currently has an F rating from the Better Business Bureau and there have been 40 complaints to the BBB about the company in the last three years. The company also made negative headlines earlier this month, when an Arlington father said his car -- with his two children inside -- were nearly towed away during a recent trip to a local CVS when an Advanced Towing driver didn't see the children initially. Still, the source says McHenry suggested that she go back to Arlington and offer an apology directly to the employee, Gina Michelle, on April 7, but was advised not to by ESPN, as it be better to not engage. The source also claims Advance Towing has been "shopping the tape around," and even approached ESPN before the video went viral. The towing company responded to that clam in a statement released to ET: Parking enforcement is contentious by nature. At the same time, neither Gina, our lot clerk, nor our company, have any interest in seeing Britt McHenry suspended or terminated as a result of her comments. Ms. McHenry is our neighbor, and, as she said, to paraphrase, made remarks that were out of line.  She is human and errors in judgement can be made in the heat of the moment. Gina is a single mother of 3 children who works a difficult job to provide her family. Gina holds no ill will toward Ms. McHenry. As a small business, we saw no benefit to releasing the video, except to highlight personal attacks employees in jobs like towing, public parking enforcement and others sometimes encounter. The video was not licensed or sold to anyone. For her part, McHenry apologized for her actions on Thursday on Twitter. "In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things," she tweeted. "As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake."
