Bezos to buy MGM who owns the rights to [The tRump ...You're Fired] The Apprentice.

This is the show The Orange Slob-father was on. The raw edited,.. unedited,.. and floor clippings where tRump was being a misogynistic,.. racist,.. and bigoted pig might now become public for the world to see.

2. Wrong.

MGM owns the broadcast rights to the finished program. They are not the production company which holds the unedited video.

9. Yes thank you,.. for info post #5


(Mark)Burnett Productions produced and edited The Apprentice reality TV show.

Burnett Productions was later sold to MGM.

Mark Burnett became CEO of MGM.

Bezos purchased MGM and Mark Burnett parted ways upon the sale.

~~~~~~~~~~~

(begin snip)

Mark Burnett has formally resigned from his top leadership role at MGM, a move that comes 10 months after Amazon closed its $8.5 billion acquisition of the studio.

Burnett’s departure from the MGM fold is not a surprise. The producer, known for enduring unscripted hits including CBS’ “Survivor,” NBC’s “The Voice” and ABC’s “Shark Tank,” has not served as a conventional TV executive during his nine years with MGM and was not expected to stick around after the sale.

5. Magicarpet, Amazon acquired MGM last year. And Trump has the legal right to block

the release of that Apprentice footage.

See this for MGM ownership:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

And this for Trump's legal control, in a story about what Apprentice creator Mark Burnett has said:

https://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/14/business/media/mark-burnett-apprentice-donald-trump.html

Mr. Burnett, who has not commented on whether such footage exists, said he did not have the legal right to release “Apprentice” tapes; M.G.M., the global entertainment conglomerate that now owns Mr. Burnett’s production company and its archive, says the same.

A person familiar with Mr. Trump’s “Apprentice” contract, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe confidential terms, said M.G.M. would have to obtain Mr. Trump’s permission before releasing unaired footage of him from the show, part of a clause granting Mr. Trump control over the use of his name and likeness.

The clause in Mr. Trump’s contract is not unusual in reality television, and M.G.M. said on Wednesday that it intended to honor its agreements. Few Hollywood studios wish to be at the center of a fevered political dispute, and M.G.M.’s statement did not mention Mr. Trump by name.

7. What is needed is a rogue liberal in that company

to find any incriminating Trump footage and give it to someone like Rachel Maddow.

13. You equate knowing Trump is racist and sexist with the Pentagon Papers?

You also equate government documents with private property?

I guess we are at the negotiation/bargaining stage.

22. Nobody. But Trump is a unique case who tried to destroy our democracy.

He has ruined all the norms. Anything that shows him in a negative life is fair game. Just my .02.

8. Lots of nasty production room cuttings that were edited out of The Apprentice.

The tRump - You're Fired - reality show.

(begin snip)

Obviously, there is a huge group of Americans who think, ‘Look how successful Trump was on The Apprentice. They haven’t yet — and probably never will — realize this guy is a con man, and they are playing the mark.”’

As for media speculation about what potentially offensive sound or footage of Trump exists in outtakes or between scenes, the editors revealed that they witnessed such occurrences, whether or not these sound bites or clips had been preserved.

“Trump’s favorite word was ‘drill,’” recalled Braun. “He was always saying between takes, ‘I’d like to drill her,’ lewdly referring to female crew members working on set. He couldn’t help himself making comments about women and the way they looked. He also had comments about women he found less attractive. There was no question he took the men a lot more seriously than the women.”

20. Old News. Amazon took over ownership of MGM in March 2022

Moreover, at the time, MGM indicated that while it owns the Apprentice material, there are contractual restrictions on what it can do with those materials.
