The 100 Most Powerful People In Hollywood Have Been Revealed. Here’s Who Holds The Top Spot

David Hookstead | Reporter

I wasn’t named one of the 100 most powerful people in the entertainment industry, and that’s not a fun pill to swallow.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney CEO Bob Iger is the most powerful player in the game right now. I don’t know if that’s a great pick or not, but I know for sure that leaving me off the list is a crime on par with some of the most serious offenses out there.

Iger might run Disney, but last time I checked, he didn’t run The Smoke Room. Disney oversees ESPN, which has gone down the drain under his watch. Are we really rewarding that? Why is that rewarded with the top spot?

At the same time that’s been happening, I’ve turned TSR into a national power player. Who has better takes? Nobody. Who knows more about college football? Nobody. Who brings you the best women on the internet? That’d be us.

Honestly, I haven’t heard of most of the people on that list. How can you have a list of power players that leaves off the king of The Smoke Room and includes people nobody has heard of? It doesn’t make sense at all. (RELATED: SMOKE ROOM STATE OF THE UNION: WE MIGHT HAVE HAD THE GREATEST WEEK IN COMPANY HISTORY)

You think the people on that list are getting up before the sun’s up to grind out and inform the nation? Do you think they’re driving the national narrative? I think it’s up for debate.

I’m out here building an empire every second that I’m breathing, and I don’t have thousands of employees to prop me up. It’s just me and my loyal team. Yet, we don’t get a shred of respect from THR. Shameful.

That’s fine. Let the world continue to overlook us. We didn’t get to the top with the help of mainstream media. We got here by grinding it out better than anybody else. Trust me, if THR is being honest I’ll be on that list next year. Take it to the bank.
