Angelina Jolie Hits FOX News Nerve
Those miserable excuse for journalist at cable's embarrassingly hideous network FOX News seemed to be really offended by Angelina Jolie's 'press ban' that appeared to have 'omitted' the trashy network from the red carpet calling her on Friday "hypocritical," "arrogant" and saying "there has hardly been a less sympathetic actress in recent history". Don't cry, Fox News... Don't cry.
The Oscar-winning actress plays the widow of murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in the upcoming movie "A Mighty Heart," and its New York premiere on Wednesday, was held to support the organisation "Reporters Without Borders," which defends journalists against persecution and combats censorship and laws that undermine press freedom.
What apparently happened was that Jolie's lawyer demanded the journalists covering the event sign pre-interview contracts limiting exactly what they could and could not ask her, for instance not asking any questions pertaining to her personal relationships. If the interviewer broke the rule Ms Jolie would have the right to immediately terminate the interview and leave.
Appearing on Thursday night's "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart, Angelina (pictured above with Brad Pitt at Wednesday's premiere) said "I think people are always looking for, unfortunately, for the most negative story, but it was not mandatory and—again, I didn't put it out there. It was from my representatives trying to be protective of me, but it was excessive and I wouldn't have put it out there."
