And the winner is... TRUTH

Attraction

Yes, seriously and honestly. The fact is that women are not treated the same as men and Hollywood has a long history of treating people of color differently.

The OSCAR statuette, which is plated in 24-karat gold, and 13.5 " high and 8.5 lbs heavy is about to get a reality check.

The true story of OSCAR has to be recognized sooner or later. Hollywood must emphasize the truth once and for all.

CBS NEWS IN THE HOTSEAT

Issue

Retired NBC correspondent George Lewis says that " Aside from the fact that the primary source for the 60 Minutes Benghazi report was a liar, McClatchy News says there are plenty of other problems with the story. McClatchy, by the way, was the outfit that cut through the BS on the non-existent weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."

CAIRO: Questions about CBS' ‘60 Minutes’ Benghazi story go beyond Dylan Davies interview.
