Really great entertainment was provided in the mid-1970s by the soap opera spoof, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman. A spin-off from that show was Fernwood 2 Night, a parody talk show set in the mythical town of Fernwood, Ohio.

Offering behind the scenes info and musings for Hate and Love of Trump, French author Thierry Meyssan says the US Press is spreading a false narrative of the events in Venezuela and the rise of tension between Washington and Teheran. According to Meyssan, President Donald Trump negotiated his political survival with the deep state. A “Rumsfeld/Cebrowski plan” was agreed to in exchange for Special Persecutor Robert Mueller letting Trump off the hook. 
Behind the scenes info on Louise Lasser, who played Mary Hartman, is that she was married to Woody Allen from 1966 to 1970.  Theorized is that the character Annie Hall, in the Woody Allen film from 1977, is based on Louise Lasser.
