Political Panorama: Tuesday

ImagesInfluential director Robert Altman, responsible for some of the most topical themed movies of the past three decades, including “MASH” and “Nashville,” died Monday night in Los Angeles. Recent work included “Gosford Park” and “Prairie Home Companion.” He also was behind the TV miniseries “Tanner ’88,” about a faux presidential campaign that incorporated real-life personalities, as well as a 2004 follow up.

Fox is fighting back on “Borat.” Facing a bevy of lawsuits — most recently a $30 million suit by Romanian villagers portrayed in the film—the studio filed a reponse to another suit in which group of fraternity brothers’ claimed that they were drunk when they signed release forms. The studio provides a series of declarations from crew members to back up their contention that the frat brothers were well aware of what was going on.

Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings appears as a contestant on a celebrity version of “Jeopardy” tonight, facing off against Michael McKean and Hill Harper. She tells the Washington Examiner: “Knowing the answer — or the question, in this case — is only half the battle. The hardest part is getting the hang of the buzzer.”
