Abbreviated Pundit Round-up: These 2018 elections have consequences for 2020

Jim Acosta and CNN win Round One. xTrump-appointed judge gives CNN a victory, w interesting findings.1) Press's 1st Amendmt rights don't end on WH grounds. 2) Decision to strip @acosta press pass is “so shrouded in mystery that the government could not tell me…. who made the decision.”https://t.co/OABM7kXwDj— Carol Leonnig (@CarolLeonnig) November 16, 2018 The worst possible take of the Acosta ruling is that media must take care (Acosta is aggressive) and is at risk for being seen as anti-Trump. If the facts are anti-Trump, so be it; not media’s problem.  Worrying about looking bad to Republicans (and conservatives) drove Facebook's crappy decisions and drives broadcast media's crappy decisions today (Facebook is a media company). That's why there are 2 Rs to every D on Sunday shows. «The straight news and facts are so bad for the GOP and the WH that we have to put our finger on the scale for balance» is a bad look.

Rooney Mara Dazzles in Givenchy’s “L’Interdit” Fragrance Campaign

One of the first fragrances created by Parfums Givenchy, the “L’Interdit” Eau de Parfum was conceived as a tribute to Audrey Hepburn in 1957. The actress was a long time muse of Hubert de Givenchy and he was responsible for creating several iconic dresses for her.With the current edition of the “L’Interdit” Eau de Parfum, Givenchy has once again looked at an actress for inspiration and has chosen Rooney Mara to front its campaign. Mara is famous for her tough girl roles in films such as “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” and continues to deliver memorable performances, which have been nominated for several awards. In the fragrance campaign, she brings her ability to “transcend limits” and a unique brand of chic boldness to the screen and Parfums Givenchy has showcased the combination fully.As for the “L’Interdit” Eau de Parfum, it is described by Parfums Givenchy as being a “forbidden blend of both dark and bright.” The heart notes bring loads of brightness to the fragrance and are composed of white flowers such as tuberose, orange blossom, and jasmine. Forming the base notes of the fragrance are darker tones delivered by vetiver and patchouli, which also enchant the senses as they last through the day and into the night. The “L’Interdit” Eau de Parfum while exploring the boundaries of “bold femininity” ensures that the elegance that Audrey Hepburn was known for still lives on in a new fragrance.Click on the slideshow to check the campaign.http://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin
