Donald Trump attacked the media, yet again, on Thursday and accused them of being “dishonest” and “out of control.”

During a press conference on Thursday, the President of the United States emphatically stated that, “The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people. Tremendous disservice. We have to talk to find out what’s going on, because the press honestly is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control.”

This is not the first time The Donald has blasted the press and accused them of lack of credibly. “It’s not surprising that he’s doing what he’s doing with the media because he is a master of the media and he wants to control the media,” Stephen Bishop told HipHollywood at the premiere of his new film, Media. 

Bishop added, “The people of the United States are smart enough to understand.”

The TV One film’s star, Brian White explained, “The media controls the narrative and right now, from the White House down, they are trying to spin the narrative and control the narrative and distort the narrative so they can get their agenda past.”

Chrystee Pharris, who also stars alongside Bishop and White, said, “There’s a lot of things that remind me of what Hitler did.”

Media, executive produced by media mogul and TV One founder, Cathy Hughes, tells the story of an empire torn apart by warring families.

The movie premieres February 25 at 8pm.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
