Good Morning America host Michael Strahan and Constance Schwartz-Morini’s SMAC Entertainment to produce a documentary dissecting the mess at the Bishop Sycamore high school football program, The Hollywood Reporter reports. 

Bishop Sycamore was in the spotlight following an ESPN televised game between the Columbus, Ohio, “school,” and IMG Academy, a powerhouse, sports-focused prep school owned by Endeavor.

To produce the documentary, SMAC Entertainment obtained exclusive rights and access to former Bishop Sycamore coach Roy Johnson for TV and film plans as part of the documentary. Unfortunately for him, Johnson would be fired after the fallout that came from the nationally televised game. 

“To secure the rights to Roy’s story as the head coach of the Bishop Sycamore High School football team that has gone viral and made national headlines is incredible, especially as it plays out in real-time,” Schwartz-Morini said. 

“When our head of unscripted, Ethan Lewis, brought this story to Michael and my attention, we knew we could tell it with the gravitas, authenticity, and journalistic integrity that it deserves.”

SMAC Entertainment is partnering with Boat Rocker’s Matador Content on the documentary.

Joe Scarborough: Brian Kilmeade, GOP Pushing Harmful Rhetoric of IRS Agents

“These lies have been spread by Chuck Grassley. By Kevin McCarthy. By top news hosts at Fox News. This is not Infowars. This is mainstream, pro-Trump rhetoric.”

MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough went on a scathing rant Friday morning, claiming Fox News hosts are, in conjunction with top Republicans, pushing dangerous rhetoric about the Internal Revenue Service’s desire to hire 87,000 new agents.

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade, who Scarborough never mentioned by name, last week said during The Brian Kilmeade Show on Fox News Radio an IRS job posting’s insistence that some duties including carrying a firearm and willingness to “use deadly force, if necessary” meant agents would “hunt down and kill middle-class taxpayers that don’t pay enough” calling it “Joe Biden’s new army”.

Scarborough noted Kilmeade’s comments by saying “These are the lies that have been spread not by — this is what’s so disturbing– not by back benchers. These lies have been spread by Chuck Grassley. By Kevin McCarthy. By top news hosts at Fox News. This is not Infowars. This is mainstream, pro-Trump rhetoric. And they are deliberately trying to get Americans to a position of where they’ll do harm to IRS agents.”

Scarborough later reiterated his point by bringing up Kilmeade’s comments once again. It’s the second time this week Scarborough has tangled with a Fox News host, after Tucker Carlson claimed the MSNBC host was “above the law” after the 2001 death of a staffer in his Florida congressional office.

While filling in as a guest host on “The ReidOut,” MSNBC host Tiffany Cross stated on Thursday the United States is already in a “civil war.”

Cross blamed right-wing ming pointed to the response from some conservatives who have responded with anger after last week’s FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago.

“It’s not really rhetoric that we can deal with. I mean, you have millions of people turning into a propaganda network every night,” Cross said, referencing Fox News, per Mediaite

“And then, as if that were not bad enough, that’s an extremist network itself; you have these fringe popup outlets from OAN to Newsmax.”

Furthermore, Cross stated that some believe a Civil War is coming again to the U.S., but the host says it’s already here. 

“People keep saying a civil war is coming,” Cross added. “I would say a civil war is here. And I don’t mean to be hyperbolic. We can look at what has happened in the past week alone since all this has happened.”

“We’ve had two people tried to declare war with FBI field offices. I don’t think at this point we’re all gonna go home and pack up our bags and go home and sing ‘Kumbaya.’”

In a press release obtained by Barret News Media, “Jordan Klepper Fingers the Conspiracy” will join “The Daily Show’s” catalog of podcasts. 

“Jordan Klepper encounters some of the more imaginative, conspiratorial minds America has to offer,” the statement said. 

“In this six-episode limited podcast series, Jordan steps off the trail to dig deep into some of the wildest theories he’s heard and trace their origins with journalists, experts, and anyone who might have a lead on when JFK Jr. is coming back.”

The Comedy Central program’s audio library already includes Hold Up, hosted by correspondent Dulcé Sloan and writer Josh Johnson, and Beyond the Scenes, hosted by Roy Wood Jr., which just began its second season this month.

Klepper’s new podcast doesn’t have a debut date but will be dropping this fall across all major podcast platforms and be produced in partnership with iHeartMedia. 

Last year’s Jordan Klepper “Fingers The Pulse – Into The MAGAverse” is the highest-rated and most-watched Daily Show special on YouTube to date.
