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.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
