Correspondents' dinner lacks glitter without Trump

This year the president of the United States, Donald Trump, has decided to stay away from an event in which he would be a prime target of biting humor.

That's dulled the glitter emanating from celebrities who usually come to the Saturday night dinner as guests of media outlets. Absent a busload of big names, the event is focusing on the First Amendment and the crucial role of the press in a democracy.

There will be, as usual, a comedian emceeing the event, which will air on C-SPAN: Hasan Minhaj, of "The Daily Show."

A president hasn't declined to attend since Ronald Reagan in 1981, though he was recovering from an assassination attempt.

Charlotte Rae of ‘Facts of Life’ has bone cancer

“Facts of Life” star Charlotte Rae revealed this week she has been diagnosed with bone cancer, People magazine reported.

The 91-year-old actress, who played matronly Edna Garrett on “The Facts of Life” and “Diff’rent Strokes,” battled pancreatic cancer seven years ago.

“Last Monday, I found out I have bone cancer,” Rae told People. “About seven years ago, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer — which is a miracle that they found it because usually it’s too late. My mother, sister and my uncle died of pancreatic cancer. After six months of chemotherapy, I was cancer-free. I lost my hair, but I had beautiful wigs. Nobody even knew.” 

Rae, who turned 91 on April 22, said she decided to cancel bone cancer treatment, which was to begin Thursday, People reported. 

“I wanted to think about it first,” she told the magazine. “I think I’m going to go for it. The side effects were not too bad when I did it originally. I’ve had a great life, but I have so many wonderful things happening. I’d like to choose life. I’m grateful for the life I’ve already had.” 

Rae’s philosophy echoes the theme song for “Facts of Life,” which aired on NBC from Aug. 24, 1979, to May 7, 1988: “You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and then you have the facts of life.”

Tom Hanks turns fanboy in breezy chat with Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen and Tom Hanks paid tribute Friday night to the late director Jonathan Demme, the man who brought them together on his film "Philadelphia," which won each of them Oscars.

"God bless Jonathan Demme, we just lost him," Hanks told the crowd attending an event that was part of the Tribeca Film Festival's Storyteller series. Demme, the Oscar-winning director of "Silence of the Lambs," died of cancer on Wednesday. Springsteen, who won an Oscar for best original song for the film, called Demme "inspirational."

Hanks, who won the best actor Academy Award for the 1993 film, played the role of fan during the hour-long session and questioned Springsteen about his life and early career. The actor also frequently engaged the crowd to finish the words to Springsteen hits such as "Rosalita" and "Growin' Up."

Springsteen entered to the loud deep chant of "Bruuuuuce," so common at the music star's concerts. "Man, I can't believe they're booing you Bruce," Hanks joked.

Much of the conversation was based on stories Springsteen told in his recent memoir, "Born to Run." He discussed the tough times at the beginning of his career when he was broke and playing gigs wherever he could. He and his bandmates never paid taxes and avoided bills for years so when they hit it big, they spent years paying off debts and attorney fees.

"In 1980, I think I had about $20,000 to my name — which sounded like a lot of money when I was 20, but when you're 30 and you've been doing this for a while...," Springsteen said, laughing. "But most people's early careers are a mess. When you get in the music business, the cards are stacked in favor of the business and they're stacked against the musicians."

The rocker known as "The Boss" became reflective when talking about making life off stage mean as much as his creative life. "All artists at some point believe they can live within their art, and what you learn — either quickly or painfully and slowly — is that at the end of the day, it's just your job, it's just your work, and life awaits you outside of those things. Let the world happen to you."

Hanks ended the night by thanking Springsteen, on behalf of all fans. "You make us happy that we were all born in the U.S.A. and will make us always want to keep our eyes out for the girls in their summer clothes. What you have done — more special for all of us — is that you have made us part of something greater than ourselves," Hanks said.

Among those in attendance Friday were Malia Obama, news anchor Gayle King, and Hanks' wife Rita Wilson and Springsteen's Patti Scialfa.

Hacker threatens to release stolen copies of Netflix series

A hacker claims to have stolen the upcoming season of Netflix's hit series "Orange Is The New Black," and is demanding that the video streaming service pay an unspecified ransom to prevent all the new episodes from being prematurely released online.

The hacker, operating under the name The Dark Overlord, has already purportedly uploaded the first episode to an illegal file-sharing service. The Associated Press could not legally confirm the authenticity of that uploaded file.

New episodes of "Orange" are scheduled for official release on June 9.

Netflix said that a small production vendor that works with several major TV studios had suffered a breach. The Los Gatos, California, company described it as an "active situation" that's being investigated by the FBI and other authorities.

Pirated copies of "Orange" could dent Netflix's subscriber growth and the company's stock price.

In the ransom note, The Dark Overlord claimed to have stolen series from other studios, too, by breaking into a single company. The purported hacker promised to also release those titles unless "modest" ransoms are paid.

Rumors of a massive leak of Hollywood films and TV episodes have been circulating online for months, fed by purported screenshots of the footage and a copy of a proposed deal to delete the stolen material in return for tens of thousands of dollars in electronic currency.

When the AP contacted The Dark Overlord in February, the hacker said the purloined video wouldn't be made publicly available after all, making the far-fetched claim that "no one really (cares) about unreleased movies and TV show episodes."

It's not clear what triggered The Dark Overload's renewed ransom demands.

Netflix is counting on "Orange" to help it add 3.2 million subscribers from April through June. That's substantially higher than the company's average gain of 1.8 million subscribers in the same period over the past five years.

Whenever Netflix's quarterly subscriber gains fall shy of management's projections, the company's stock usually plunges.
